Poll: Which is your favorite in-game cinematic? {WoW}

Dec 16th 2011 6:32AM WOTLK is the only expansion in WoW that has given me that shiver up my spine. There were so many great moments and quests, but the Wrathgate was just outstanding.
Nothing in Cata has come close to the emotional involvement I felt in LK's storyline.

The tainted race to world first {WoW}

Dec 9th 2011 4:07PM The one thing I don't understand in all this is why they needed to do it in the first place - surely they were all fully decked out in bis heroic Firelands gear already?

The Queue: Twilight cultists are everywhere {WoW}

Jul 29th 2011 11:28AM You can't flask for mastery but you can use Elixirs, as a Paladin tank i use Mastery and Armour elixirs (you can use both as Mastery counts as Battle and Armour as Guardian) in preference to a Stam flask. This is better for me until i hit block cap.

The Light and How to Swing It: Kitting out your tank with the new starter gear of patch 4.2 {WoW}

Jun 25th 2011 6:39AM Great to have these all in one place thanks Matt! Would you be able to give us the values of Mastery and Avoidance you are using for comparing values?
'Ask Mr Robot' is insisting that Parry and Dodge are worth more than Mastery and I'd like to re-program him. I am surprised that a 378 Dodge/Parry relic reforged to Mastery is worse than the 359 version though.

The Queue: My hands are full {WoW}

May 26th 2011 2:27PM Several cartoon shouts already that have awakened youthful memories, my eyes raised to the ceiling in half remembered reverie...
But seriously, i can't be certain of the decade but I'm pretty old, I remember loving: Marshal Bravestar anyone? Space sheriff, had the animal powers and a horse with a shotgun or something.
Also Bucky O'Hare - legendary space rabbit.
That is all.
Oh and yes to Animaniacs- very witty.

The Queue: Fused with infinity {WoW}

May 23rd 2011 1:29PM Thanks for your responses on the authenticator question; does the mobile app replace my authenticator, or will either code work?

The Queue: Fused with infinity {WoW}

May 23rd 2011 12:41PM The answer to this might just be "No!" but I hope the illustrious readers of The Queue might be able to help me. I recently signed up to the Remote Auction House service so I could re-list in my breaks at work. Unfortunately it demands both my password and an authenticator number. I am extremely reluctant to carry my authenticator around because of the problems losing it would cause; is there any way to remove the need for the authenticator on my remote app without removing it from protecting me actually logging in to my account?

Gold Capped: Will epic gems be prospectable from Pyrite Ore? {WoW}

Apr 25th 2011 7:52PM Whilst I do think it likely that epic gems will prospect from Pyrite, there are other options which would fit with Blizz's slowing of access to epics in Cata - either a JC prism or Transmute option. Both options were in the game in Wrath on 24 hour cooldowns I believe, which would slow access to epics without making them unobtainable outside raids.
What I also think might be an option is a new JC currency for epic cuts, so that everyone starts from the same place- maybe a new JC daily requiring blue gems.

Gold Capped: Improving the default auction house interface {WoW}

Mar 24th 2011 2:35PM As someone just getting into the money making game, how easy is Auctionator to use 'out the box'? Is it quite self explanatory for someone with no experience of this type if add-on?

Also, can anyone satisfy my curiosity as to why the Ah takes a cut of your sale? I understand the deposit, but I don't see how the 5% cut helps anyone- it either makes you price items higher to make up for it, or maybe vendor something instead?

WoW Rookie: Understanding mitigation versus stamina for tanking {WoW}

Mar 10th 2011 1:58PM If you are running Heroics i don't think that being hit and expertise capped is beneficial for any tanking class at this point in the expac. Unless you are seriously over-gearing the content and have a threat set you are likely to be either over-taxing the healer or overusing cc. You can only be hitting these caps at the expense of a good amount of mitigation/avoidance. I don't have experience of all tank classes so please correct me if this is not applicable.
