I noticed I was having a real bear of a time doing the pve dailies on the Isle of Thunder, so I switched to the pvp dailies instead. I breezed through them. Is that normal? Are they easier by design? And do you think they will continue to offer things like the pvp dailies?
Well, the main difference between PvP vs. PvE dailies is that with one, you travel all over and do things for people. With the other, you travel to one place and beat the snot out of some dudes -- however, you run the risk of being killed by other players while you are doing so. That, and the PvP dailies offer PvP rewards, rather than the standard PvE rewards you'll get from doing daily quests. They definitely aren't easier if you run into resistance from the opposite faction.

Blizzard offers paid look, faction, race, and realm changes. I'd love a class change option. Has that ever been on the table?
No, and I don't think it'll ever be on the table. Part of that whole leveling experience is learning how to play the class you've chosen. Even if you paid to swap classes, how would you know how to play it effectively? I just think it's too much of jump for Blizzard to make.
Q4tQ: Is there anything I could or should do as an engineer/alchemist to prepare for 5.3? I don't want to stock up living steel bars if there's nothing new I could use them for.
Not to my knowledge -- the engineering items are still delayed, and as far as I've heard, there's nothing new going on for Alchemy, either. So you're safe, no need to prepare this time around!
@Onebigmutha asked via Twitter:
Does the Wrathion meta need to be equipped to get the Runestones? OS etc. It could just be RNG
I believe so. When you get a runestone, Wrathion chats at you about it for a minute or two through the meta you're wearing. You can purchase different metas from the Blacktalon Quartermaster in the Veiled Stair if you need a different one -- the cost is five Primal Diamonds. If you haven't picked up a meta for your offspec, I'd recommend doing it! They're amazing.
Not to sound like a noob, but does using Dungeon Finder reduce the difficulty of a dungeon the same way that using Raid Finder does?
Not a noob question at all! Using the dungeon finder won't decrease the difficulty of a dungeon, but you'll sometimes find yourself with the Luck of the Draw buff, which increases your damage, healing, and health by 5%. It stacks up to three times. It's not the same as the stacking LFR buff, but it helps make things a little more manageable.
@mementh asked via Twitter:
what in game something or another would be the scariest thing in real life?
Well I think we've already established that Thaddius is pretty dang creepy.
Q4tQ: Why do some grey items look better than greens or even blues? I know this is subjective but it's stunning really.
Man I don't know, but I wish they'd let us use more of those items for transmogrification!

Q4tQ: If, and this is purely hypothetical, i wanted to cut down the mightiest tree in the forest, what should i use, great internet wizrard?
First, you turn it into a flea -- a harmless, little flea. And then you put that flea in a box, and then you put that box inside of another box. Then you mail that box to yourself, and when it arrives, smash it with a hammer.
