The Queue: Pokemon Eve

Michael Sacco

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Mike Sacco will be your host today.

Pokemon X&Y come out at midnight! Which are you picking up, if applicable, and which starter are you picking? If you say anything but "Fennekin" I'm tossing you into a peat bog where you belong.

lackinganame asked:

I was wondering about the heirloom gear hell scream drops i noticed that it uses level 60 class horde weapon model and most of the same textures (some of them even have the horde symbol on them) my question is was the weapon design something they ran out of time for so now alliance players are going to run around with horde weapons? or was the idea always to give horde looking weapons?

They're in line with all the other heirlooms -- sometimes reskinned, sometimes not versions of legacy gear. After all, take down the leader of the Horde and loot his war chest and you think you'll find Alliance logos all over everything?

gamer4279 asked:

I think Garrosh is going to act as a vessel for the return of Ysaarj or another old god. In this manner he would cease to be Garrosh Hellscream, so dont worry about fighting him again, he would be completely transformed into the old god.

I dunno, man. They didn't take the opportunity to do that in Siege of Orgrimmar. When would be a more opportune time?

Aubrey asked:

I just got a Hearthstone invite a few days ago. I set my WoW sub to cancel though in the next week. Will I lose my access once my WoW gametime is up? I'm pretty sure they only send those out to active players.

I've already downloaded it though so it is on my computer, but I've yet to log in and do anything with it.

Nope, Hearthstone is free-to-play, and the two products are unrelated in any meaningful way, so you wouldn't need a WoW account anyway.

Rollo asked:

Im starting to think that "The Dark Below" really is the next warcraft expansion. I remember when mists of pandaria was trademarked and everyone thought it was a bogus, and now here we are again with nothing new popping up. Are there any new scraps of information that blizzard has released on the subject?

The Dark Below wasn't trademarked. Look it up. It's not in any copyright/trademark databases. It's a hoax, it was always a hoax, it is not the next expansion, it is not anything.

If something is going to leak about the next expansion, it had better hurry up or this might be the first BlizzCon that we go into completely in the dark!
