The Queue: Merry Christmas


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.
Or, you know, whatever.

Leo asked:

I'm curious about the epic-quality weapons and armor that can be gained via rare discoveries in archaeology. They say they are bound to account, but do they stay that way (like heirlooms), or do they become soulbound once they're equipped?
Like any other account-bound item, they will never become soulbound. They don't scale with your level either, though.

Babaloo asked:

Question: What is the lore reason (If there is any) as to why Zul'Gurub is now deserted?

According to quests in STV, every high priest in Zul'Gurub, as well as Hakkar himself, died in vanilla WoW. Jin'do survived, likely because killing him wasn't "necessary" to defeat Hakkar.

Everyone will probably ask:

Why are there so few questions today?

Because it's Christmas!* Hope yours is a good one.

* Also, because most of yesterday's comments were tangential nonsense, not questions! Ho ho ho!
