The Queue: Leveling, bug reports and the Scourgeborne

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.


For those of us who won't be able to play Wrath for a while still, what would be the best route to catch up with everyone and get into raiding as quickly as possible?

Just quest, really. Finding a good place to grind out mobs can technically be better XP per hour, but really, that's a horrible way to experience the expansion your first time through. Most of the people that did it that way (such as Nymh) did it after they'd already seen all of the leveling content in the Wrath beta. Just quest. The order I did zones in is this: Howling Fjord, Dragonblight, Grizzly Hills, Zul'Drak, Sholazar Basin until you hit 77, then get Cold Weather Flying and move on to Storm Peaks or Icecrown until 80. Exchange Howling Fjord for Borean Tundra if you want. I just went with the Fjord personally because it had fewer people.

Just wondering if the Death Knight will be getting tier armor sets. I can't see any information floating about. Would seem like a bit of a jip if they didn't though...

They won't retroactively have sets added to places like Molten Core or Black Temple, but they do have sets in the new dungeons, certainly. Their Tier 7 is called Scourgeborne. Heroes' Scourgeborne is the 10-man set and Valorous Scourgeborne is the 25-man set. They share tokens just like everyone else. Since that makes the tokens uneven, two with three classes and one with four classes, the odd one out has a slightly higher droprate to compensate.

As a sidenote, the word you're looking for is 'gyp' and it's actually a racial slur! I didn't know that until recently myself, and I've since stopped using it. It's one of those words that has sort of lost its insulting intent over the years, but there are still people out there who would get offended and be insulted, even if you don't mean it that way. I'm not your father/mother, so use the word if you want. I just wanted to stick my nose in, in case you didn't know!

Genkitty asked...

What happened to my Seal/Judgement of the Crusader, the one that upped holy damage on the target? It was my bread and butter Judgement and I miss it.

You don't need it anymore! The damage boost that the Judgement gave has been rolled into your spells baseline. The amount of damage they would have done with Judgement of the Crusader before is how much damage they do now without it.

Lian asked...

Is there any sign of Dungeon Set blues in Wrath? Sets that function similar to the dungeons sets of WoW vanilla and BC, before players move onto tiered armor?

Nope, there aren't any class-specific dungeon sets this time around. Which is probably for the best, nobody actually collected those for any purpose beyond, "It's my class set!" Getting a bunch of Druid pieces when you don't have a Druid is annoying, too. The good news is that the entry level raids, Naxxramas, Eye of Eternity and Obsidian Sactum? They're all really, really easy (though the Sanctum can be harder if you want). If you want a class set just for the sake of having a class set, you can do that. If you just want good gear, the blues that everyone can use will do you perfectly.

It is fun to complete a set, my Priest has kept every single set she's completed since Devout, but the 5-man class sets have become sort of... unnecessary.

Flamewhisker asked...

I don't know about other realms, but Kilrogg has had a bad problem with bugged/broken quests. Do you have any info on whether Blizz is aware of the extent of the problem and what they're going to do about it?

If you run into bugs, report those bugs. GM tickets, the various support forums depending on the bug, all that stuff. If people are properly reporting bugs, that's how Blizzard becomes aware of them. I'm not Blizzard so I don't have a list of the bugs they're aware of, but I can tell you what they're going to do about it! They'll fix them as soon as they're able. Certain quests have been hotfixed already, and the ones they can't hotfix will probably be fixed in the next patch.
