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.
In today's episode of The Queue, I give our Facebook page another shameless plug. Have you seen it? Yes? Good! Let's move on, then.
Jonny Dale asked...
I seem to remember a post on where to find all the +hit rating gear for casters, but I can't find this anywhere on WoWInsider search or Google. Anyone care to help?
You might be referring to a Spiritual Guidance entry from... oh, three weeks ago? It's our weekly Priest column, and while it's typically slanted for Healing Priests and written by Matt Low, I chip in with some Shadow Priest love when he's busy.
Anyway, to get to the actual question, I wrote a guide for reaching the hit cap a few weeks ago, and that might be what you're talking about. It's written by a Shadow Priest and for Shadow Priests, but pretty much every cloth class will be pulling from the same pool of items to get their +Hit. It's not a bad resource to find the items you might need/want.
Do you, or your readers, have any suggestions as to how a druid should do the achievement With a Little Helper from My Friends?
Stick to Wintergrasp, and hop in the turrets or a siege vehicle. The turrets are especially awesome if your faction is playing defense. You just fire it wildly into a crowd and get a load of kills. Assuming you have friends that can get you there, this is something you can do at pretty much any level. If you're not in the mood for Wintergrasp, try just healing through a couple rounds of Alterac Valley. Hang out in the back, wear what spell power gear you have, spam Lifebloom or whatever, make other people do the killing for you. It's cheap, but it works!
Will they bring back attunements for the high end game raids?
Probably not the way we're used to seeing them. The devs seem pretty happy with them being mostly gone, and as someone who completed all of the Burning Crusade attunements before they were nerfed/removed, I'm pretty happy with it too. As long as they keep up with the epic questlines that tell us why we're going places, I don't mind a lack of attunements. If they didn't show us why Naxxramas and Kel'thuzad were back, it would've been really annoying. They did, though, so I don't care that there's no attunement. We know why it's there, we know why it's bad. Good enough for me. They didn't bother with that for Obsidian Sanctum, and I consider it a failure on their part... which I may talk about more in the coming days. We'll see.
They're still kept a sense of raid progression going, to some extent. The Malygos encounter doesn't need an attunement exactly, but someone in your raid needs the 'key' from Sapphiron to call Big Blue down. There's still an element of 'you need to do X before Y.'
So no, the devs haven't given any indication of bringing back attunements, and have actually moved further away from them with Wrath. It's more likely they'll refine the current system of indicating progression rather than going back to old school attunements.
So I finally farmed and saved up the 5000g to but the epic flying mount, but I am not sure where to pick one up. Any help?
Head on over to Shadowmoon Valley. If you're Alliance, you want to go to Wildhammer Stronghold. If you're Horde, Shadowmoon Village is what you want.
