The Queue: Across the Pond

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft.

Amy Pond. That is all.

Interfico asked...

So is there any info on what will be dropping in patch 4.1 new dungeons and raids? I dont want to spend my valors on an item only to find out that i couldve gotten something just as good in the dungeons.

We don't know the exact drops yet. I'd guess within the next few weeks we'll see them. We know via datamining some item level 378 and 391 trinkets, but that's all, really.

Kazdur asked...

If a guild mate and I both queue for a random heroic as DPS and Healer to let the game decide who gets the lovely job of healing, are there any mechanics behind the scenes that decide which of us heals? Does it look to see who has the better ilevel? Or is it merely a coin toss? Thanks.

While IANB (I am not Blizzard), I believe in this situation you would each have equal chances of getting selected as the healer.

Ostentaneous asked...

Speaking of GMs. Where are they based out of? Do they work from home or is there a call center type place somewhere and where do you apply for that job?

GMs (and everyone else at Blizzard in the United States) work out of Irvine, California, and Austin, Texas. Across the pond (Amy Pond, there -- that's where I got the title for today's Queue), I know they at least work out of Paris (and Cork, Ireland; thanks comments!) , if not elsewhere in Europe too. And as Drakkennfyre pointed out, they're all office jobs, not work-at-home gigs (like WoW Insider is).
