Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the
World of Warcraft. Matthew Rossi will be your host today.
Consider this one a slightly more personal Queue than most, because today's the start of WoW
's 10th anniversary celebration, and that means telling a little story. That screenshot above is from just before I got my Sulfuras
, which I still have - I've had it for eight years now. But I wouldn't have gotten it, or done any of the raiding I did then, or even played this game at all if not for the fact that WoW

. I might not be married if not for you. I certainly wouldn't have a job writing about you if you didn't exist. So thank you.
