The Queue: No Can Do

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.

Sleep through doing the Queue yesterday? I can't go for that. But I did.

yamael asked:

Am I alone in thinking that Garrosh will go back long before the drinking of the Demon Blood? By the point they drank, the Horde was already created and using fel magics left and right in the war against the draenei. They were all already green corrupted orcs unless they were in some isolated place like behind the quarantine of Garadar. The drinking of the blood was the final touch to fully bind them to the Burning Legion, just before the sacking of Shattrah near the end of that war. Garrosh has to stop Ner'zhul and Gul'dan long before that.

I believe it was stated during the story panel at BlizzCon that Garrosh goes back to a few (2 or 3) years before the whole blood thing. The draenei are still around at that point, some key decisions haven't yet been made. It's more ripe for story fun than arriving at the moment Grom's about to chug some blood.

HemttTanker asked:

Are there any legit ways to buy a Hearthstone key without worry of being scammed? Also, how much are they going for?

Just wait for open beta. It's happening in the next few months. Waiting is the best way not to get scammed.

ptay313 asked:

Since the new expansion has been announced, do you think we wil see Spirits of Harmony become BoA or even tradeable? I ask because my Engineer has dozens of them that are essentially useless for him, while my JC/Alchemist could really use them.

Probably never. It seems like the time to make them BOA would've been during the expansion's final big patch, and it didn't happen. It's possible it'll happen in the 6.0 patch, but don't bet on it.

GnomesAreOftenOverlooked asked:

If we are visiting another dimension-thingy, and what we do there is in the/its past, then why are we even messing with it? If it won't affect our lives and/or children's lives, why should we [theoretically] risk our lives?

Their dimension's Dark Portal is now hooked up to our present-time one, so the threat of the Iron Horde is very real to us. They're gonna pour on through and bulldoze us if we don't stop them.
