The Queue: Tier 8, wormholes, and more
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.

The above video is a video that has been posted very, very early in the Wrath beta, possibly even the alpha. Originally thought to be Tier 7, it's actually the next tier up, Tier 8. There are a few graphical glitches in the armor because it hadn't been fully implemented yet at the time the video was made. Your Hunter will not have big green squares sticking out of their head, I promise. I embedded it into today's post in response to Tanglebones's question:

Oh! I got a question. What the heck is Apothecary Putress wearing on his head, and where can i get one?

Watch the video and found out!

Covnam asked...

I hit 70 on my Mage shortly before Wrath came out, so I never graduated from normal dungeons to heroic dungeons and raids. Once I hit 80, where should I go? Do Heroic dungeons come first or 10/25 man raids? Also what type of stats would you recommend before running either of these types of end game content?

content is laid out a little differently from Burning Crusade content... but since you never did the BC Heroics it doesn't matter much! In Wrath, Heroics are a little bit easier than 10-man raids and the epics that drop in Heroics are about equal to the 10-man loot. Stats is really dependent on class, but I'd strongly recommend being in mostly level 80 blues before stepping into Heroics and Raids, and get as close to the hit cap as possible and you're set.

Bahzell asked...

What I'm really wondering is where the next engineering teleporter is? In Vanilla we had Gadgetzan or Winterspring, Burning Crusade was Blades Edge/Netherstorm. So where's the new teleports at?

In beta, there were spells added to the game files that seemed to suggest that Engineers wouldn't be getting new teleporters, but rather wormholes to portal an entire party/raid somewhere. Gadgetzan is the only town we saw for sure, I believe. These Wormholes never actually made it into the game, so the devs either decided against the idea or didn't have time to finish it. I imagine that if Engineers get a new portal in Wrath of the Lich King, it'll be the Wormholes.

Rasman asked...

I'm just right over the edge of getting my Epic Flying and Coldweather flying AND my epic mount and I know I can train for them all in Dalaran, instead of going all the way back to Shadowmoon Valley, BUT are there any cost effecient Epic flyers in Northrend that I can get, so I can avoid having to go all the way back to Shadowmoon, just to get a mount?

So far the cheapest I've seen is the Snowy Griffin in Dalaran at around 190g, with my current rep with the Kirin Tor.

The epic Snowy Gryphon is actually 1900g, you missed a zero. There's really nothing cheap in Northrend at all, the basic cheapo stuff is all back in Outland. In fact, that 1900g is probably one of the cheapest you'll find unless you get a lucky drop. Just set your hearth in Dalaran, take the Shattrath portal, fly out to Shadowmoon and hearth back when you've made your purchases. It will take fifteen minutes tops.
