The Queue: The cool guys {WoW}

May 8th 2011 11:34PM Thanks everyone. I am specifically wondering about the rare (silver dragon) non-quest NPCs. I've looked up a couple when I run across them and have found them at Wowhead, but without much more than info on where they are and what they drop.

What is the story behind these characters, their lore, their history, if any? Are they just random named Murlocs and Cultists and such with better loot? It seems like there must be more to it than that.

The Queue: The cool guys {WoW}

May 8th 2011 12:57PM Hi Queue! I have a question for you.

I was working on Archaeology in Kalimdor the other day and I ran across a couple of named mobs hanging around with some of the others. I've seen this a lot, and it started me thinking - what is the lore behind these characters? Are they NPCs with a back story or just a name and better loot table?

Thanks!

Raid Rx: Analyzing tier 12 healing set bonuses {WoW}

May 6th 2011 3:11PM Wow, there's a Stargate to the Firelands now!

Hooray for screenshots (and all things Stargate).

... does this mean the Titans are Ancients?

The Lawbringer: A good cause {WoW}

May 6th 2011 3:09PM Actually, Matt, it is possible to donate specifically to a particular cause when there are major disasters. A donation to the Red Cross in general may or may not be used for the disaster in Japan, but a donation to the Red Cross that is earmarked for their "Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami" fund will go to that effort.

I assume that, in this case, Blizzard has marked donations from the Cenarion Hatchling for this fund.

I served on the Board of Directors for my local Red Cross Chapter for many years and had a lot of experience with this. It works the same way if you make a donation at your local Chapter -- bring in a bucket of cash for Japan relief and that's what it'll go for.

Go ahead. Take the bucket, and the cash, and go... :-)

The Queue: Gold Guns Girls {WoW}

Apr 22nd 2011 11:25AM I wish to be as awesome as [insert name of next queue author here]. Hey, mon, how do I be as awesome as [insert name of next queue author here]?

(Note: Not trollin' because I really do appreciate all of you and the badassery that is The Queue, but still representin' for da Trolls.)

The Queue: Those were $500 sunglasses {WoW}

Jan 9th 2011 3:59PM I think the different feel in Cata is because of the zone separation. Outland and Northrend feel like their own areas, whereas the mixed in Cata zones are just part of the world.

This seems successful from a game design standpoint - better integration - but less satisfying as someone who paid money for an expansion.

Breakfast Topic: Memories of WoW in 2010 {WoW}

Dec 31st 2010 9:16AM For me 2010 can best be described as the "Year of Lore" -- thanks, in large part, to the efforts of you, Anne, and Mr. Rossi. I had always dabbled in the stories of WoW and as a player of the original Warcraft RTS games and expansions it was interesting to see the storylines develop but you opened my eyes to a whole other aspect of the world.

My own meandering led me to lore pages at wowwiki and other sites, but I would have never thought to look into the lore of zones (Un'goro and Sholazar), side characters, obscure-but-important dragonflights, and all the other wonders of this universe.

Each week is like a mini-Christmas with new wonders to discover.

Thank you! I look forward to more in '11.

12 Days of Winter Veil Giveaway Day 9: SteelSeries Cataclysm mousepads {WoW}

Dec 30th 2010 1:12PM Dear, dear mousepad. I've forgotten you for years and just used you -- indeed, taken advantage of you -- and you've patiently and quietly surrendered yourself to my needs.

You are the best friend I never knew I had. Protecting my mouse (and thus all of my computing) from dust and dirt, making my life better in countless tiny ways, adding more to my environment than was there before.

Now it's time for you to rest the eternal rest of all things that get old. Yet, what will take your place? What can stand in for you, my most faithful companion?

Perhaps this.
