Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Mike Sacco will be your host today.
I am so hyped up for Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. I got my Tournament Edition fightstick, my Collector's Edition paid up and ready for pickup, my MvC2 downloaded from Xbox Live. Could not be more excited. Can't wait to repeatedly get destroyed by people running Magneto/Storm/Sentinel teams. It'll be like 2001 all over again.
I just came back to the game after a long break and I noticed several things different about the male troll model. They seem to have a perpetual stubbed toe, some of their hair and shoulder armor clips, and the end of tabards curl upwards. I haven't been able to find much info about this, is this a recent bug, or a deliberate model change?
Male troll models are indeed messed up right now, and the issues are at least partially fixed in 4.0.6.
This might be something you can't answer, but considering you were an ex-CM (right?), I'd like to know just how much lore information you're privy to.
Occasionally when lore debates get heated, we have to dig through old blue posts to dig up something said by, say, Caydiem or Nethaera, and some argue that despite being blue posters, their answers aren't "official" lore. In situations where a blue poster posts lore, are they usually going on memory or do they have access to the series bible or something?
It's an important distinction to make that I was a forum game master, not a community manager. I didn't have direct access to the dev or C-dev team, so I couldn't tell you for certain. That said, people have told me that lore answers are usually approved by someone on the dev team before being posted.
Call me a gold digger if you like -- but I've been grinding legendary weapons for a long time (Thunderfury, Thori'dal, the Stars' Fury & the Warglaives). I've been told that whenever you've killed a boss X amount of times (~50?), you're sure to have the boss dropping its "legendary" item. Can you confirm or decline this hypothesis?
Your odds of receiving a certain drop do not increase depending on how many times you've killed the boss in question. Trust me on this one.
P.S.: I got my Baron's Deathcharger on my first Stratholme run.
I am planning on purchasing a new computer in the near future and can't find any of my WoW discs. Is there a way to transfer all four games to my new computer without having any of the install discs (or codes)?
You can download the game client for free off of Battle.net, or you can just take your current WoW directory, put it on an external drive, and copy it onto your new computer. Your install will work on any computer that can run the game without your needing to do anything.
Why can we buy faction rep items that bind to account like head enchants, but if we send them to another account, we cannot use them because that toon does not have the required rep for the faction? I bought the arcanum of hyjal on my melee toon to send to my mage that did not have the rep yet, but the mage can not use this. Is this a bug, or did Blizzard design it like that, and if so, it does not make much sense to have a BoA item if all your toons need to reach that factions rep to use?
It's a bug that's being fixed in 4.0.6.
