The Queue: Stab, chop, crush and kill

Matthew Rossi

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

I am addicted to Man at Arms, the awesome webseries where various fictional weapons from TV, movies, video games and cartoons (thus far) are recreated as functional weapons. At the end of the episode I used for the header, you can choose to vote on the next weapon they make, between Gorehowl and Frostmourne. Now, I would never attempt to sway you, but let me just link this tweet from Holinka that I believe says it all. Vote Gorehowl. I mean, it's almost time to see Grom Hellscream use that axe on us.

inkliizii1 asks:
What is your favorite playable race? For both factions?

Draenei for Alliance, Tauren for Horde. First off, these two races are the best choices in terms of looking badass as a warrior, which is pretty important to me. Secondly, they're probably the races on each side of the faction divide who are the least out and out bloody insane. Finally, A tauren wielding Ashkandi is a thing of beauty.

Eresin84 asks:
if i was geared well enough to do normal raids, and I wasn't interested in transmog and I don't need heirloom, what on earth can I use my justice points for?! I wish they would let us by pet battle bandages with them!!

Aside from pump them into honor, they're almost completely useless for someone geared well enough for normal raids who doesn't care about transmog or heirlooms.

lemurian asks:
Q4TQ: Any word on if there will be new class/race combo?

As of right now, no. There will be no new race/class combos. This is subject to change without any notice - if Blizzard decides "we really need gnome druids" then it can and will happen. But they have not announced anything.

gazaa07 asks:
Q4tQ: Do you think questlines from lvling areas should be packaged into level cap Scenarios so people can revisit them? purely cos some of them are pretty good (CSI: Westfall, Stonetalon Mountains, Redridge, West Plaguelands Horde)

If you're talking about the Cataclysm revamp stuff, then no, not really. What I would like to see is for quests that have completely vanished from leveling content, such as Order Must Be Restored or greatly changed such as Battle for the Undercity made into scenarios. Maybe we could combine them, so that we kill Nathanos and attack Putricide on the Alliance side, and rescue Nathanos and attack Varimathras on the Horde side.

ScottLeyes asks:
With the upcoming "alternate" Draenor, are we going into a series of "Crisis on Infinite Azeroths" expansions?

Serious answer - go ahead and play Heroes of the Storm, because that's what the basic premise of that game is. Less serious answer - I wouldn't rule it out.

Loopnotdefined asks:
What weapon would you like to see Man at Arms make? Besides Ashkandi?

Excuse me. (Takes a deep breath.) CUUUUUUUUUUUURSE YOUUUUUUUUUUU. Okay. I'm better now. Anyway, I'd probably say something like the Warglaives of Azzinoth, just because that'd be a fun engineering challenge. Also, I'd finally get to see someone try and use those things. This is assuming that his next episode ends up with him making Gorehowl. If not, Gorehowl.

OriginalMrGoat asks:
What is the likelihood of seeing both choppers at blizzcon? The real ones, not the ingame ones.

I'm not going to lie. If both those motorcycles aren't tooling around with Metzen or Samwise on them at BlizzCon I'll be terribly disappointed. I won't actually be there to see it, but come on. Don't leave us hanging, Blizz.

And that's the Queue for today. Make sure to ask Anne lots of questions for tomorrow's Queue.
