The Queue: Jinxed

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

I don't play League of Legends. I'm not good at it and, in general, I have no interest in the MOBA genre. But the music video they released for their newest champion? Holy crap. So cool.

Jackson Stephens asked:

What do you think about the idea that the expansion will be announced at Blizzcon and released for Christmas?

Win the ultimate BlizzCon experience from SteelSeries

It's way too late to buy BlizzCon tickets, but there's still a chance to win one if you're lucky. SteelSeries, J!NX, and League of S.T.E.A.M. have teamed up to give one lucky winner what they call the ultimate BlizzCon experience, which includes airfare, hotel, and BlizzCon tickets for two people, as well as a custom-designed costume from the League of S.T.E.A.M.. For interested parties who aren't as lucky, there's also a chance to win the World of Warcraft wireless MMO mouse from SteelSeries and gift cards from J!NX.

The contest is open through August 11th for North American residents. Good luck -- and see you at BlizzCon!

New WoW tees, hats, and belts from J!NX

New WoW tees, hats, and belts from J!NX
If you're looking to gear up for your IRL challenges -- and show some WoW pride in the process -- J!NX has released new swag for purchase. On offer are four new tees (in men's and women's styles), three leather belts, and two cadet caps. There's alliance and horde variations of each to show your faction pride as well as designs sporting Shen-z in Su and a pandaren monk. We particularly like the caps (check out the alliance and horde versions), which feature faction logos in a hand-painted style -- though if you aren't into hats, the same is available on a tee for alliance and horde.

If any of this sounds like a must-buy, it's available on J!NX now -- though the caps are only available for pre-order and will ship in mid-July.

WoW Archivist: WoW's zaniest merchandise

DPS necklace
WoW Archivist explores the secrets of World of Warcraft's past. What did the game look like years ago? Who is etched into WoW's history? What secrets does the game still hold?

With only five shopping days left until the Feast of Winter Veil, it is officially holiday crunch time. To inspire you in your shopping goals or maybe point out the perfect gift for that special raider in your life, WoW Archivist presents the zaniest WoW-themed real-world merchandise of all time.

Strange swag

Every BlizzCon has its swag bag, but 2008's edition, celebrating the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, has to be the zaniest ever. In addition to Diablo III "sinamints," a can of "zerg creep" goop, and a pandaren beer cozy, the bag included an inflatable Frostmourne or an inflatable "Bubble Hearth Beach Ball." The latter is a Divinely Shielded dwarf using an uninterruptable hearthstone -- in beach ball form.

The bag also included a package of tissues labeled "QQ noob," masks of Azeroth's races (reminiscent of the Hallow's End in-game versions), and a Frostmourne keychain. The keychain is notable for its several outward-facing spikes. It takes falling on your keys to a whole new level of pain. The full-size Frostmourne replica is more dangerous, but you're also not carrying it around in your pocket mere centimeters from your genitals.

Or are you?

JINX reveals its spring collection

Image
If you're aiming to add a little Azeroth flavor to your swagger, JINX is the go-to source for WoW swag. After all, JINX is a proven purveyor of WoW clothing, hats, and even the occasional hoodie. JINX's designs tend to be fun, creative, and WoW-flavored with a strong mainstream appeal. It's great stuff, even if you don't want every person who glances at you to instantly think, "Ah, this is a man who's really into video games."

The Spring Collection has finally been announced, heralding the arrival of new designs aplenty for the WoW geek who likes to wear the game on his sleeve. My favorite is probably Property of Tol Barad Prison. After all, after enough games there, I certainly feel like I've given up my soul. Jinx also has a couple of new spray pins that look snazzy attached to backpacks. I'm avoiding faction bias by getting one of each for my Mac's bag.

You must be 18 years of age or older and a legal resident of the United States or Canada (excluding Quebec). You can only enter once. Five winners will be chosen at random.

New Jinx designs revealed for fall lineup

Jinx, purveyor of all things World of Warcraft-themed, has debuted some of its new designs for the fall lineup of WoW-inspired clothing. The new designs include a lineup of shirts signaling a player's Dungeon Finder role (tank, DPS, healer) and some new Deathwing designs just in time for patch 4.3. In true Jinx spirit, women's sizes and versions are available for all of the new fall designs.

Jinx's designs incorporate WoW elements as part of their motif or in straight-out reference the game, so there is always something for everyone, which I appreciate. I'm the guy who will wear a video game shirt but not something that says "I am a mage" on it. The new role icon shirts are particularly cool to me, since I love minimalistic video game designs on T-shirts and really want that tank shirt. See, world? You need me in your dungeon queue.

Hopefully, Jinx will have just as large of a showing at BlizzCon this year as it did last year, with a gigantic booth and that crazy murloc hoodie that had me scared and amazed me simultaneously. Check out the new fall lineup over at Jinx.

J!NX and Blizzard announce World of Warcraft T-Shirt Design Contest

The contests, they keep coming! This particular one from Blizzard and J!NX is particularly interesting for you budding designers and artists out there, as J!NX is giving you a chance to design the next wave of Cataclysm gear! Using their design kit, you can create designs in the template and upload them for a shot at getting your designs on Jinx clothing.

J!NX has been heralding in some pretty interesting design choices over the course of the last year, and they're showing a remarkable amount of foresight into lots of different categories of clothing that gamers and geeks in general would want. When I visited them at BlizzCon 2010, they had an impressive showing of quality stuff ranging from the normal T-shirts to the offbeat murloc hoodie. If this contest is any indication, they are going to be looking for all types of designs, from the subtle to the crazy.

Check out the official contest post, where you can find links to the design kit as well as the contest submission forms.
