WoW Insider has the latest on the Mists of Pandaria!

The Queue: Hawaiian Pizza edition

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

Today, in addition to all of the questions I'm answering for you, I need all of you to answer a question for me. Hawaiian Pizza: Delicious, or Crazy Delicious? This is an important question, my friends. I need each and every one of you to contribute. It's for the good of mankind. Also, to prove my girlfriend wrong. It rules, does it not?

Evaline asked...

Are there any Ulduar achievements currently on the PTR? I'm guessing they aren't there yet, because we would have heard something about them if there were. Another question if I may, do the bosses on the PTR currently drop loot? Again probably not, for the same reason as above, but can't hurt to ask.

No achievements, no loot. We probably won't see anything about the achievements at all until they've tested all of the bosses they plan on testing at least once. You sort of need to make sure the fight works when doing it regularly before you start coming up with all sorts of crazy things for people to try.

Loot is probably something we'll start seeing a few PTR builds from now. I imagine they have most of the items designed by now but haven't assigned drops to bosses at all. It's pretty likely we won't see most of the drops actually drop until live servers, either. They're using the Shirt of Uber to circumvent gearing issues for testing later bosses.

Any word on new emblem gear becoming available for purchase in 3.1?

There is new Emblem gear being added for the new Emblems, yes. Emblems of Heroism and Emblems of Valor are not getting new items as far as we know. The new Emblems are Emblems of Conquest that drop in Ulduar-25, while Ulduar-10 drops Valor.

In yesterday's PTR patch we started seeing these Conquest items. You can hop on over to that post to check them out.

Eberon asked...

I noticed in Sholazar Basin on a small Island in the lake north of Hesingwary FP (coords 38,37) a small hatch with some numbers on them? Any idea what that might be?


It's a pop culture reference. It's a nod to Lost. Or maybe it's LOST. LoSt? lOsT? I have no idea how that title works.

uncaringbear asked...

Why does Blizz make the loading screen (the one of Arthas that you see after selecting a character and zone into the game) impossible to ALT-TAB out of? Am I the only person that finds this annoying? With the longer and longer loading times, if your character is parked in Dalaran, it would be nice to ALT-TAB out and do something other than stare at Arthas' grinning mug for what seems like an eternity.

I assume there's some technical reason for it, but I don't really know for sure. I do know how I avoid staring at the loading screens, though.

If your computer can handle it, go into your video settings and switch over to Windowed Mode. Then Maximize it using the little check box, so it fills your entire screen. If you have a good system (which you might not if your load times are that long) you can continue playing WoW as you always have, except tabbing out will be much easier and much faster. The only problem is that it's a heavier load on your computer. If your PC can handle it, you absolutely should always play in Windowed Mode if you are a chronic alt-tabber like I am. I don't ever look at loading screens. Ever.
