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. Adam Holisky will be your host today.
This queue is certified Panadaran free.
Enjoy it while it lasts.
Today's reading music The Crossroads by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Every time I'm in the Crossroads I think of that song.
"Why can't we bandage while bleeding?"
Each time you suffer damage from a bleed effect it will interrupt your bandaging. Bleed effects are DoTs, and DoTs only allow you to get one tick of the bandage process off. That's the technical explanation.
Now on the other hand, you'd expect from a lore / logical standpoint you'd be able to apply bandages while you're bleeding. Just like you do in real life. Unfortunately WoW != real life, so we're at the mercy of the game's mechanics.
"Does the Warlock Affliction talent Nightfall stack with the Glyph of Corruption?"
Yes, but as Osirus noted: "[But] not quite as they can proc at the same time. I think with both you get 7.6% chance due to chance of dual procs." Reports vary between a 7.2% and a 7.6% proc rate.
"Any more scuttlebutt on faction changes? Any possibility that it will be restricted in such a way as to only allow those changes that would help balance the server's horde:alliance ratio?"
I imagine there'd be some restrictions in place for extreme circumstances, just like there are now for server transfers. I doubt there'll be a rule however that says "One Horde->Alliance for every Alliance->Horde."
We're expecting to see more news about this soon. And as we talked about on the podcast this last weekend, we're expecting this feature to come out sometime around BlizzCon, just because of the sheer amount of press it'll get. Note that we don't have any inside info here, it just makes sense.
"I was just gone for 10 days. In 15 words or less, can you tell me the most important things that have happened here at WoW.com?"
