The Queue: Punching our way to greatness

Alex Ziebart

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.

Yesterday we were talking about the Bros Before Ho Ho Ho's achievement a bit. Specifically, do you need to be level 77 to get it if you're a Horde player? Most of us thought yes, you do, but stacy (one of our readers) popped in with some pretty creative instructions on how to do it. Check that out, then we'll get on with the Q&A!

Classy asked...

Anyone know a good place to fall to get the "Going Down?" achievement?

As others mentioned yesterday, the Scryers elevator in Shattrath is a pretty good place. You just jump off the left side, making sure you hit the ground and not the ramp or any of that sticky-uppy stuff. You should get the achievement no problem. There are lots of other random places where you can get it, but that's the easiest landmark to point out. Port to Shattrath, fly up, jump off, all done.


Are we credited the hours that are lost during the Tuesday maintenance for our items on the auction house?

I don't think so but perhaps someone will prove me wrong. I remember that back in the day I used to ninja-bid on low-priced blues just before maintenance and would log in later that day with some cheapo blues in my mailbox. I'm not sure if that was because the auction expired while the server was down, or if I won it after servers came back up the legit way. Pretty sure it was the former though. It worked pretty well and made me some decent money, either way.

T asked...

Now that 3.0.8 is live, what NPC do we turn in the Relics of Ulduar to?

Patch 3.0.8 is not live. When it is live they'll get turned in to the Sons of Hodir Quartermaster Lillehoff.

Ty asked...

If 4 Death Knights were to Death Grip a player in 4 different directions at the same time would the player be "quartered", or split into 4 parts?

Yes, that is exactly what would happen. You can put the player back together by giving the pieces to 4 Mages and have them stand in a circle and Blink toward each other.

I want an undead female that uses fist weapons, because the stance is ungodly amounts of awesome. What would be my best excuse for this? A warrior? A rogue? Which spec? It's probably a terribad idea--the only class I know that REALLY likes fists is a Shaman--but it wouldn't exactly be a hardcore raiding character, just for fun.

I think a Combat Rogue would be the way to go with this one for Close Quarters Combat. It's probably not the most ideal Rogue spec ever, but as you said, it's just for fun and I think a good Combat spec will do that for you. A Fury Warrior could work as well, but I think the Rogue would be way more fun than a Fury Warrior without Titan's Grip. Plus, if you're going down through Killing Spree, that ability is wicked awesome if you're off questing or something.
