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.
Shadowmoon Valley on the Alpha is ridiculously awesome, guys. Even with the usual 'it's Alpha' connectivity problems that you can't really be surprised by, I've enjoyed the quest flow, the scenery is gorgeous, and the lore bombs are dropping fast and furious. The one that's been spoilered all over the internet? That one's nothing
compared to some of the things that happen in SMV.
Frankly, as good as Frostfire Ridge is (and it's good) I think the Alliance definitely got the richer, more interesting, just plain better
zone this time around. It's still the Alpha - Frostfire is by no means a bad
zone, and frankly, it might just be my love for all things draenei showing here (but check it out you can see both moons in the Shadowmoon Valley sky) but I have to doff my cap to SMV so far. Totally awesome.
At the Start of the Green Fire questline, we have to talk to our Demons to identify what the tome is and what it's used for
Q4tQ: can we have a system where we can talk to our demon about whatever's going on in that patch? the Demons are Sentient beings so why can't we talk to them? DKs could do it with their Ghoul as well (provided they are unholy)
From a pure game design perspective that's a lot of coding for your demon. I mean, you want to be able to talk to it about anything that's happening - that could mean, well, anything. From a lore perspective, your demons aren't your friends -- they are at best your slaves, and at worst here to corrupt you and damn your soul to be consumed in the Twisted Nether. So either way, not all that interested in chatting with you about that new quest in patch 6.3.
Having just recently watched Hellboy again, I figure a DK talking to his ghouls wouldn't get anything terribly helpful. Mostly they'd just berate him for disturbing their eternal rest.
