The Queue: Kraid! Start the reactor!

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.

Oh no! Mixed references!

Wreckener asked:

What language is all the Warcraft music sung in? Is it Gaelic, Norwegian, a mixture of languages or a completely made up one altogether?

It's mostly Latin. They're real words, but they're put together in ways that don't necessarily translate perfectly. There are also a few songs like Lament of the Highborne that are in made-up Warcraft languages.

johnmeyer578 asked:

Think there will ever be any connectivity between WoW and Hearthstone? Like cards dropping from raid bosses and in the open world.

Maybe being able to use a table in an inn to seamlessly to set up a hearthstone match?

It would e like what I wish swtor had done with pazaak!

I'm sure there'll be little nods and tie-ins, but Blizzard seemed pretty up-front about how they didn't have plans to integrate the two games in any meaningful (read: mechanical) way.

RufusHonkerIV asked:

Is there any word on any celebrations for World of Warcraft turning ten years old this year? At the least I'm hoping for a humdinger of a present in the mail.

There'll definitely be something, but don't expect to hear about it until we're closer to the actual anniversary date. I imagine Blizzard has their plate full right now.

Razwick92 asked:

How exactly does personal loot in LFR decide what you get?

I am sort of ok with dealing with RNG, but I've run the first two wings of SoO at least 15 times because I got my legendary in there and I haven't stopped running it. Now, my issue is that out of all of the loot available I keep getting repeats, and it's not just one thing, it's absurd.

When you down a boss, the game rolls to see if you get loot, then picks one of the appropriate pieces of loot from the boss and gives it to you. It's just RNG.
