Welcome back to The Queue, WoW Insider's daily Q&A column where the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Alex Ziebart will be your host today.
I was horrified to find endless amounts of Wisconsin hate in the comments of yesterday's edition of The Queue. Come on, Wisconsin rules! Well, no, the few bubbles of real civilization in Wisconsin rule. Milwaukee, Madison, and maybe (maybe) the Green Bay area. Everything in between those points are like something out of a horror movie. In transit from Milwaukee to Madison, all of the passengers in the car keep their eyes squeezed shut while the driver breaks out in a cold sweat. Packers fans fling themselves at your vehicle like the undead, crying out for your blood and pounding their fists on your windows. The only thing that you can do, the only thing you want to do, is keep driving.
Milwaukee, though? Totally rules.
"I'm starting to think that there won't be a raid included in 3.2. I've heard about a new battleground, an expansion of the argent tournament but nothing about a new raid. Is there any confirmation or denial on if there will be a new raid before Icecrown?"
Well, they said that there will be one in patch 3.2 back in last year's BlizzCon. Does that still mean that there will be one? Not necessarily, but I think that there will be. When it was mentioned, it was stressed that what it is will be a bit of a mystery. I think we haven't heard much about it because they want to keep that air of mystery.
"Somebody called me?"
"Does anyone think it's feasible to apply the stat adjusting mechanic that the heirloom items have to legendary items? Maybe give them some more use since they are... well, legendary."
I don't think Blizzard would do this, even if I personally think it would be cool. They've made it pretty clear over the years that they want Legendaries to be replaced eventually. They're exceptionally good weapons for whatever stretch of the game you get them, but they shouldn't last you forever. It's largely because this is an MMO. You always need bigger and better goals to keep you moving forward in the game. If Legendaries scaled, you'd find yourself in a spot of "I can never upgrade my weapon ever again."
We, as players, might think that Legendaries should last forever. From a game design standpoint, it's just not a good move. So I don't think we'll see scaling oranges.
