The Queue: I'm Onett!

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.

Is that how you pronounce Onett? Or is it "oh-net"?

RyanKomisarz asked:

Do you think there will be a representation of Taunka or Hozen into Orgrimmar or another major Horde city ever? We gone through quests to induct both into the Horde, or were they only brought in simply for the sake of a military force to get a helping hand on the continent they were found?

Good question. I'd say it's pretty unlikely that we'll see any sign of them past their respective expansions, even though at least the taunka are technically real members of the Horde. Until they become playable, don't expect to see them in Orgrimmar.

It's the year of the horse. Why no horse theme queue yet?

Okay.

The Queue: Tony Stark's wardrobe

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.

Jeez, think Iron Man has enough alternate costumes in Marvel Heroes? The Starboost armor on the left side is pretty cool, though. (Brief note: I have been playing said game lately and it is way, way better than it was at launch. Consider trying it out. Big thumbs up from me, your old pal Mike.)

Selethor asked:

Do we know how much the Blood Elves have recovered since Arthas came through and destroyed everything, and will we ever see the sunwell's effects on the elves?

The blood elf population is still small, but it is recovering since the end of Burning Crusade. I don't think we have any solid figures on exactly how much it's recovered, but generally once a population is less worried about surviving the day, they get to more mundane stuff like baby-makin'. As for the Sunwell's effects, one can assume it's already begun to work its, well, magic. The nature of the fel green eye glow the blood elves currently have is kind of ambiguous; like the green skin of the orcs, it may never go away.

The Queue: Deer fart

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.

Deer fart.

Nekthara asked:

Question for the Queue: Is there any particular order that the Warcraft novels should be read? I got a few from Goodwill the other day but I don't want to start and feel like I'm missing part of the story.

Don't feel particularly compelled to read them in chronological order as listed here, but if you really want to adhere to an arbitrary guideline you could probably read them in order of release. That way at least you'll meet the characters from the War of the Ancients trilogy before their next appearances, etc.

The Queue: Tear a foreman

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.

I'm designing a board game about terraforming. What are you guys up to?

Paggit asked:

Do we know if garrisons are going to faction specific or are they going to depend on your race.

Right now there's a human-looking one for Alliance and an orc-looking one for Horde. The devs said they'd like to do racial-specific ones but it's going to come down to time.

The Queue: Lazy Sunday

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.

Comments for Saturday's Queue were surprisingly few for so many comments. But that just means that people were having lively discussion there instead of asking questions, which is also fine.

MandaPanda asked:

Where do you think we'll encounter the warlords in Warlords of Draenor? Will we meet them in questing areas, trying to woo them to our side and not Garrosh's (and how will Alliance interact with them)? Will they be raid bosses, as we take out the orc army?

All of the above! Fighting off the various warlords is the main goal in several zones, and you can be darn sure you're gonna be killing some of them for purples. We don't know a lot about the who and where yet, but we know that at least on Horde side you'll be trying to get Durotan to join you.

The Queue: Gaining my religion

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.

I think Losing My Religion is somehow even sadder when it's in a major key.

john.aga1 asked:

Rhonin, leader of the Kirin Tor died at Theramore just prior to the start of the MoP expansion. However, he is still shown alive as leader of the Kirin Tor in Dalaran. When will he die in game?

Maybe never? After all, you still have Garrosh as a mopey nerd in Outland. There are lots of weird time bubbles in WoW. Schrhoniner's Mage being alive and dead is hardly the biggest oddity.

The Queue: The ballad of Captain Placeholder

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.

An Oscar shoe-in. (Thanks Scott.)

PortalHopper asked:

Since completing the Vision Of Time quests, I noticed we still get the quest 'Empowering the Hourglass'. Do you think we are actually powering Garrosh's Super-Duper-Not-Actually-A-Time-Travel-Doohicky™, the device we'll use to follow him to Old Draenor, or is it just lazy quest design? Also do you think 'Empowering the Hourglass' should reward 2000 timeless coins as we are down a 1000 coin quest per week?

Yes, the prevailing theory is that the device you're empowering is what Garrosh uses to get to Draenor, in whole or in part. Especially since it seems Kairoz is Garrosh's "mystery" partner.

The Queue: Keep on

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.

Keep on keeping your camera on.

jabrone77 asked:

I'm not sure if this has been asked or not yet, but what's up with the Mogu now? We beat their king and ruined their takeover, so where do they go in the future? A new horde playable race in the e xpansion after Dreanor? (Ok, that last one's wishful thinking...)

They'll probably hang out and lick their wounds for another thousand years, then make another stab at retaking Pandaria. They're pretty rudderless at the moment.

The Queue: Kraid! Start the reactor!

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.
