Know Your Lore, Tin Foil Hat Edition: The final boss of Cataclysm

The World of Warcraft is an expansive universe. You're playing the game, you're fighting the bosses, you know the how -- but do you know the why? Each week, Matthew Rossi and Anne Stickney make sure you Know Your Lore by covering the history of the story behind World of Warcraft.

The image above was taken from a blog post I made back in January of this year, a post discussing possible links between the Old Gods, the dragonflights and Deathwing. Unfortunately, not more than a month or so after it originally aired, several points in the post were disproved, largely due to the release of the Stormrage novel and revelations contained therein. But with the release of Cataclysm and the events playing out on beta servers, I feel this deserves another look -- because what we are potentially looking at is a sequence of events that prove that Deathwing isn't really the one responsible for all this disaster we're going to see on Azeroth, nor is Deathwing the one we should really be worried about.

Please note that this post is a "Tin Foil Hat" edition. It is pure speculation based on events already presented in Warcraft lore and certain things I've seen lurking around the Cataclysm beta servers. There are potential spoilers for Cataclysm in this post -- but only if my mad, deranged theories are somehow correct. However, I am going to include several screenshots from the Cataclysm servers, so if you'd rather not be spoiled in any way by the upcoming expansion, I'd advise steering away now.

The Queue: Conclusions

Alright, alright. I'll tell you guys what I had for dinner the other day. I've danced around the subject enough. The vote was 50% for KFC and 50% for Taco Bell at the end of the polling day, so I flipped a coin and ended up going KFC. Since I had so many suggestions for it, I ended up going with the Double Down. I'll be honest, it was pretty good. Your heart would die a painful death if you ate them regularly, but as a one time thing? Yeah, it was delicious. Totally worth it.

Andostre asked:

"I read in the very last Blizzard Battle Plan that Deathwing is emerging from Deepholme. What is Deepholme? Do we know how Deathwing got there?"

The Queue: Cho'gall is back in black

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

On the last edition of The Queue written by yours truly, I included a mind-blowing video on how to properly eat chicken wings. Today, I bring you something equally as mind blowing. How to properly peel a banana. And now, on with the show.

Boombaclot asks...

"Do you believe that WoW has truly gotten easier or just maybe that the WoW community as a whole have become better players? Yes you have your scrubs but I know my WoW game has improved vastly since I started playing in Vanilla WoW."
