12 Days of Winter Veil Giveaway: Plush Gryphon and Plush Windrider

12 Days of Winter Veil is under way here at WoW Insider. That means 12 days of giveaways, 12 chances for you to win some of the awesome swag we've accumulated over the year. Whether you've been a good goblin or a naughty night elf, there's a chance that WoW Insider has a holiday gift for you this season.
For the launch of Mists of Pandaria, Blizzard was kind enough to give us some loot to pass out at our midnight release meet-and-greets. Unfortunately, one of our locations canceled their midnight release event at the last moment, leaving us with a bit of excess loot. Today, all of you get a shot at that loot -- we're giving away a plush gryphon and a plush windrider.

Today's entry is a little different than what we've done so far: you need to choose which of the two pets you want, declaring your allegiance with a "For the Horde!" for a shot at the windrider or "For the Alliance!" for a shot at the gryphon. You may only enter once, so choose carefully.

To enter for a chance to win, leave a comment (following the instructions above) on this post before 11:59 p.m. ET, Wednesday, January 2, 2013. You must be 18 years of age or older and a legal resident of the United States or Canada (excluding Quebec). You may only enter once. One winner will be chosen at random for each item and we will contact you via whichever method you've used to comment. Official rules here.

The Queue: Battle.net


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.

So we said that we would have a special edition of The Queue this past Saturday. It never happened. Why? Well, the intent was for it to be entertainment while we all sat in the queue for BlizzCon tickets. Yammer about BlizzCon, get excited, all of that sort of thing. Adam and I put ourselves in the ticket queue, were getting ready to push the post out, and then... ticket sales were over. It was kind of a pointless post at that point! So it never happened. We apologize for that.

The ticket sales went surprisingly smoothly. We're always going to find something to gripe about (holy crap why don't they have more tickets) but the whole thing didn't come tumbling down this year, and that's such a massive improvement over last year. It was a good thing.

Dusseldorf asked...

"Is there any benefit to converting my account to a Battle.net account? I see problems with Battle.net users logging in all the time, and was just wondering the point of converting."

Is Leading the Cavalry possible?

I mentioned the Leading the Cavalry achievement earlier, the achievement that requires 75 mounts to... well, achieve. The big question is, is that actually possible? Let's find out!

Let's use a Forsaken for our example, since they have no factors working against them like racial boundries on mounts. Keep in mind that some races will have a harder time, like Tauren can't use two of the five Horde mounts, and Gnomes don't allow anybody but Gnomes and Dwarves to use mechachickens.

The Horde has Peacocks, Raptors, Wolves, Skeletal Horses, and Kodo. From a glance at Wowhead, there seems to be...
