Merry Christmas, everyone. It's very quiet in the proverbial WoW Insider offices today. I'm the only soul around, and the only sound in the air is the clickety-clack of my keyboard. That may seem a little depressing, but it isn't -- everybody is off enjoying themselves and grabbing some much-deserved rest and relaxation. It's a good thing.
Today's edition of The Queue is a bit short due to the holiday, but I'm sure you'll all forgive me, right?
With the events of the dragon soul, its safe to say that lorewise caverns of time is just a lair of bronze dragons now ? This means we will never see another time traveling dungeon again ?
Also Nozdurmu will now just grow old to be a nice guy without the risk of go "infinite" crazy ?
When it comes to time travel, anything is possible. It's almost completely useless to guess and speculate as to what will happen when time travel is involved.
The Caverns of Time are probably not going away. The Bronze Dragonflight just oversaw and guarded it, but the timeways are still a thing that can be manipulated. When something goes awry in the time stream, it's going to be even more important that adventurers go and fix it, because the Bronze Dragons can't do it themselves.
If the Caverns of Time are still open, should Nozdormu want his power back, he can sneak into the timeways as a mortal and try to find a way to stop us from depowering the Aspects. He could manipulate an infinite number of events to change the path of time and cause himself to become Murozond again. Who knows? Time travel is really quite silly.
Was there any other use for Deathwing's humanoid form, aside from artwork and getting punched in the face by Theldurin the Lost?
Nope. Machinimators will find a use for it until the end of time, but Blizzard itself never used it in any official capacity outside of being punched. It's unfortunate, because his character model was awesome. If I had to guess, I'd say Blizzard decided against using it because it humanizes him. Deathwing is not the cold, calculating manipulator that he used to be. He's an engine of destruction now and has no reason to use anything but his dragon form. He doesn't need to shrink down to human size to go indoors. He just breaks the building open as a dragon.
Okay, I've got a holiday-themed question: What's your favorite holiday treat?
These ridiculously easy rum balls that FoodWishes taught me how to make this year.
