Nice questions in the Queue today. And I must say, it's a nice day out over all.

I just love it when it's 90 and humid.

Hint: I'm being sarcastic... very sarcastic.

Jeff "The Dude" LaBowski asked:

Why isn't begging for gold in WoW a ban worthy offense? Other than duel spam or guild invite spam, it's gotta be the most annoying thing.

The Queue: Ethics in the age of Azeroth


Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Adam Holisky (@adamholisky) will be your host today.

Good questions today! Let's dive in, shall we?

Kertomos asked:

Reading some comments below I had this question come into my mind. What is our pick on morality in Azeroth? Or in any fictional world for that matter, that doesn't present you with a clear set of the moral values (also, in Azeroth the societies are many and different). Is it legitimate to project our own values in the fictional world? Is it expected of us to project our values in the fictional world?

Queuers, I'm having a crabby. There's another polar vortex hanging over Minneapolis, and the city's traffic is a mess due to the All Star game.

Post your happy to make me happy.

Zilla asked:

What's your favorite quest or quest chain, and why?

JPF asked:

how much xp does the wod starter quests give compared to timeless isle dailies? How about TI mobs vs wod mobs?

My change from hardcore through casual

The time between expansions is a great opportunity to change your play style. You can become more proficient with PvP, learn to not stand in fire, or pick up a new class. It can be hard to find guilds to take you in as an undergeared, fresh class player, but things are also a lot more forgiving. You'll be under geared but with everyone else around you rocking some of the best gear in the game, you don't really have to worry about your gear being too huge of an issue.

For me, this is also a great time to switch between overall play styles. Back in Burning Crusade I was a hardcore raider. 25 hours a week of raiding, our guild made it into the top 150 in the world, and I'd tank like an army drill sergeant. When Wrath came around I floundered and had enough, I went down to being "mid core" -- the gray area between casual and hardcore. I'd raid with dedicated groups, but I wouldn't do more than 10 hours a week.
