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. Alex Ziebart will be your host today.
Todays edition of The Queue should be read while playing Boom Boom Pow in the background. It's completely irrelevant to WoW or anything discussed today, but I haven't been able to stop playing the song for about a week now and it's really starting to drive me crazy. If I can't stop listening to it, I'll just make other people listen to it. Schadenfreude is just as good as a cure.
"My question is about the 100 Mounts Achievement. With the introduction of the AT, this is more doable than ever before. Is there a current database of all available mounts to help those seeking 100?"
Yep! The WoW community is pretty crazy about building up resources like these, so just check out either WarcraftMounts.com or WoWCollect.com, that's all you should need. If you want others, just hit Google. There are oodles of them.
Ian R. asked...
"What ever happened to the Know Your Lore and Ask a Lore Nerd columns?"
Ask a Lore Nerd hasn't gone anywhere, it was just delayed a little because I had other big projects around the site that was pulling me away. That one will be back this week. I'm going to be trying to bring back Know Your Lore, and it actually should have been back already. The issue with that one is I always feel like I've run out of material, even if it's absolutely not the case. If there's something you really, really want to see in Know Your Lore when it returns, e-mail your suggestions to me at email@example.com and I'll add them to a list.
"Will we ever see Prot PVP gear for Paladins and Warriors (gear that has more than stam/resil - /glare at shields) or will we be forced to continue to wear our old raid gear gemmed and chanted with resil to be competitive?"
We haven't heard anything about this, but I can agree that I'd like to see it, too. I don't know how different it would be from the Ret gear for Paladins or the Arms/Fury gear for Warriors beyond glove bonuses, though. The tank-spec exclusive stats are probably things they would want to avoid stacking in PvP. You already get a lot of Strength to boost your Block Value, but adding even more via straight Block Val might not be such a great thing for PvP.
It's not like there's any other tank stat that's useful in PvP. Wearing the DPS gear might be for the best. Better shield itemization would be nice though, along with different glove bonuses perhaps. Otherwise? Eh.

"Any chance that the Raven Lord mount Boss will spawn without a Druid in the party? I really want it."
Unless something changed recently (and I'm pretty sure it hasn't), no, Anzu won't spawn unless you have a Druid with the proper summoning item in your party. Sorry.
