The Queue: Boost to 90 price point, WoD beasts, and a Burning Legion double team


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.

Queue readers! A question for you.

If you were to take a one week trip anywhere in the world and just sit and play WoW at -- where would you go? I'm talking like a mountain resort with some nice high-speed and low-latency internet.

Snacks asked:

what's the guesstimated price point for purchasing boosts to 90 when it happens?

The Queue: Up up up down A select A B A A A up down

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.

45,000 people are currently trying to play Pokemon Red simultaneously using a chat parser. The results are about what you'd expect.

pedroboteon asked:

WIth the news that the PvP Season is ending could that be a sign that:

1) Patch 5.4.7 is about to drop.

2) WoD will be available for pre-purchase very very soon™?


I think 1) and 2) are both true, actually!

The Queue: Welcome Bear

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.

An old friend visits in today's Queue.

GnomeMaleModel asked:

Ignoring all current race/class restrictions, what would be your dream insta-90 character? Tauren Rogue? Gnome Hunter? Panda DK? Murloc Priest?

Undead druid, just so I could see their ostensibly-awesome forms. A playable version of the classic Welcome Bear from Western Plaguelands! A big ol' dead tree form! I'm sure the artists would have a grand old time with it, and so would I.

The Queue: Spoiled

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) really likes betas.

My guild managed to kill Spoils of Pandaria 25-heroic for the first time yesterday, and even made it a one-shot on top of that! Unfortunately, I neglected to hit my print screen button when we were all lined up for a screenshot, so you'll have to make do with the screenshot above. ... the fight was kind of like that, anyway. On to the questions!

Puntable1 asked:

Why do you think Blizzard encouraged the comparison between Garrisons and player housing? They are obviously nothing like player housing, but rather like the bases in the Warcraft RTS games. Aren't they just confusing the players?

Not at all! Garrisons are basically the Warcraft version of what they would like player housing to be. It's not just someplace you go with your character to sit and do nothing, it's a fully interactive base -- which is pretty Warcraft appropriate. Blizzard has been saying all along that if they introduce a new feature, they want that feature to be a part of the in-game world, not something that removes players from that world entirely. We got a small taste of what that kind of feature could be with the farm. Even though the farm was phased from the rest of the world, the quests and items you could get from the farm worked directly with that world. It may not be the traditional version of what player housing should be, but it's the Warcraft version of it.

The Queue: Yep, we're epic all right

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) might actually be just the tiniest bit evil. So sorry. (Not really.)

Every now and again I feel it necessary to remind people of the existence of the above song. Enjoy your earworm. Now that that little deed is done, let's answer some WoW questions.

Fizzl asked:

What do you think the biggest thing delaying the Beta/WoD is right now? New models? Item squish? Raids? Something else?

There isn't really a delay on the beta. We have no idea when it's scheduled to come out, or if it's been scheduled to come out. However, even with beta testing Blizzard still needs plenty of stuff for people to test -- so they may still be working on quests for some zones, or finishing off different features so that they're actually playable and can be properly tested. I know it's been a while since we've heard anything regarding the new expansion and beta, but just be patient. It'll happen, eventually!

The Queue: Take Your Dog to Work Day

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.

Well, technically you can bring your dog to work every day at my office. But yesterday I brought Miga. She was so productive I ended up getting replaced by her, as you can see above.

curleyjoe666 asked:

How likely do you guys think it is that Blizzard will ever allow us more frredom with our character names? For example, I really want to be able to use apostrophes in my characters names, especially Orc and Troll characters and it does make me feel less connected to those characters because their neames aren't right.

This is something I've always wanted. In beta, the first character I ever rolled I named Ciel Larkin, but the naming thing truncated it to Ciellarkin. I was sad. It always seemed like a flavor miss to me, not being able to give yourself a real orc or human or troll name. Unfortunately, this seems like one of those things where if we haven't gotten it yet, we probably never will. Maybe in WoW2.

The Queue: Got to give in

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.

The new Warpaint album is out and it's really good.

JohnO asked:

If Blizzard were to do a redemption of any one orc leader in Draenor, who do you think it should be and why?

Specifically, I am talking about those that drank the Kool-Aid in pre-BC Draenor, but became a better person because he/she didn't drink the Kool-Aid in the new version of Draenor.


Ner'zhul, for sure. He's the only one who doesn't seem like a complete maniac. Gul'dan, now there's a dude who's just pure evil. Ner'zhul was a dope who just got in over his head and paid the price. Without the demon blood, maybe he has a chance. Given what little we know, I think I might be on to something?

The Queue: Single player, merch, four specs, and reforging


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.

Lots of great questions yesterday, and not all about some old dude who predicted the end of the world. Thanks! Let's get down to it then, shall we?

GenericWoW asked:

PvP notwithstanding, would YOU play WoW if you could play it offline as a single-player RPG?

Think GW1 henchmen for dungeons and raids, AI improved. No possiblity of ever 'porting an offline to online, these sorts of limitations.

The Queue: An American Worgen in 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. Matthew Rossi will be your lycanthropic host today.

Sincerely, I love worgen. They're just behind draenei for Alliance races, and probably my third favorite overall after tauren. Sometimes I like them better that tauren, like after watching The Howling or An American Werewolf In London, two of my favorite movies. And yes, I am playing a worgen hunter with a worg pet and a worg pup. I also ride around on a worg mount sometimes. All worg, all the time.

BaronOfTheLake asks:
Q4TQ: How long do you think it'll be till we see what the new PVP gear will look like for the upcoming season?


The Alliance PvP gear for the new season looks like the Horde gear did this season, and vice versa. You can see it on the PTR right now.

The Queue: I'm Onett!

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.

Is that how you pronounce Onett? Or is it "oh-net"?

RyanKomisarz asked:

Do you think there will be a representation of Taunka or Hozen into Orgrimmar or another major Horde city ever? We gone through quests to induct both into the Horde, or were they only brought in simply for the sake of a military force to get a helping hand on the continent they were found?

Good question. I'd say it's pretty unlikely that we'll see any sign of them past their respective expansions, even though at least the taunka are technically real members of the Horde. Until they become playable, don't expect to see them in Orgrimmar.

The Queue: Tony Stark's wardrobe

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.

Jeez, think Iron Man has enough alternate costumes in Marvel Heroes? The Starboost armor on the left side is pretty cool, though. (Brief note: I have been playing said game lately and it is way, way better than it was at launch. Consider trying it out. Big thumbs up from me, your old pal Mike.)

Selethor asked:

Do we know how much the Blood Elves have recovered since Arthas came through and destroyed everything, and will we ever see the sunwell's effects on the elves?

The blood elf population is still small, but it is recovering since the end of Burning Crusade. I don't think we have any solid figures on exactly how much it's recovered, but generally once a population is less worried about surviving the day, they get to more mundane stuff like baby-makin'. As for the Sunwell's effects, one can assume it's already begun to work its, well, magic. The nature of the fel green eye glow the blood elves currently have is kind of ambiguous; like the green skin of the orcs, it may never go away.

The Queue: I'm sorry, who are we facing again?

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) actually liked this fight best out of all of ToC.

My raid guild was chatting while raiding last night, as we do, and at some point during the evening someone brought up poor Wilfred Fizzlebang. It reminded me of Mr. Voltron's excellent Jaraxxus remix, which I hadn't heard in a long time, so I thought I'd use it for the Queue today. This isn't the original version, it's a mashup mix, and I kind of like it better than the original.

Let's open with a Twitter question, because this was a pretty good question to ask.

@RJME92 asked via Twitter:

why in the world does varian and the alliance leadership not demand concessions from the horde in the aftermath of Siege?

The Queue: It's oh so quiet

You brought the header video on yourselves, people, with the woeful absence of questions in yesterday's queue. You should really know how this works by now, you ask questions, we answer them! No, I won't hear your excuses about how you got distracted by stags and all their majesty, or farts and all their... something. So let's get lots of good questions in for tomorrow, OK? Or I'll end up doing it again, and I'm sure nobody wants that.

@Davesignal asked:

Widespread proliferation of multi-dotting: good, bad, or neutral for gameplay?

Multi-dotting is certainly strong, and prolific, but I think we need to consider this in terms of encounter design as well. If there are several multi-target encounters, then multi-dotting is likely to become an ever more prevalent style of gameplay. More than anything, the way encounters are designed and built influences how players react, and how they perceive the strengths and weaknesses of various styles.

The Queue: Deer fart

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.

Deer fart.

Nekthara asked:

Question for the Queue: Is there any particular order that the Warcraft novels should be read? I got a few from Goodwill the other day but I don't want to start and feel like I'm missing part of the story.

Don't feel particularly compelled to read them in chronological order as listed here, but if you really want to adhere to an arbitrary guideline you could probably read them in order of release. That way at least you'll meet the characters from the War of the Ancients trilogy before their next appearances, etc.
