The Queue: rm -fR "World of Warcraft" && echo "Oops!"


Welcome back to The Queue,'s daily Q&A column where the team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Adam Holisky will be your host today.

Many thanks to Sacco for covering The Queue last Friday. For some odd reason he decided to start drawing this weekend, and you can see one of his drawings above. For the other image you'll have to check out our Twitter page (it wasn't done when today's edition of The Queue was written).

If you're wondering about the title, we're not going to talk about the mistake Adam made over the weekend when he was setting up WoW on his fresh dual-boot linux install. It's just really not worth going over how he managed to delete his WoW directory that has lasted him since pre-BC. Not at all.

Remember that The Queue is here to answer your questions, and you can either leave them in a comment in this article or contact us with them. So without further ado...

Swampsquach asked...

"When you do the repeatable Frenzyheart/Oracle quest in Sholazar Basin, does it have any effect on the current rep you have with either one? For example, if I get revered with the Oracle's and then do that quest but pick Oracle's again, is that just free gold? Or does it set your rep back to honored?"

The quest to select which faction you're aligning yourself with will set your faction standing at friendly to whatever faction you select, and make the other faction hate you. Does this mean that if you're at Oracle exalted and select Oracle, that you'll now be down to friendly with the Oracles? I don't know, but why would you want to try that?

My advice: only use this quest when you're wanting to switch between Frenzyheart and Oracles.

Airleagen asked...

"If the new instance has a 5, 10, and 25 man version, how do we enter the heroic/non-heroic version if there are three choices?"

The new 5-man dungeon (heroic and non-heroic) will be a separate dungeon from the 10/25-man one. Think of it as a Hellfire Citadel, a 5-man and a raid each having a different entrance portal. I should note that we haven't actually seen the new place yet, but unless Blizzard changes some major game mechanics, this is how it'll work. You can also read the blue statements on the new dungeon.

Jason asked...

"So I have a question: Will the new have a mobile site like"
now works. There were some initial technical difficulties, but those are all taken care.

Many of you asked...

"Why do I still have to confirm my comments even after creating an account on Doesn't that kinda defeat the purpose of creating an account?" profile and comment integration is coming soon. And not the Blizzard soon.

Many of you asked...

"When is going to fix the broke WoW Head links in the 'read more' version of stories?"


MechChef asked...

"Hey Sacco, who are you?"

Sacco joined us back in December. He used to work for Blizzard under the forum name Belfaire. Based on real life images, I can confirm he is indeed a Talbuk with a penchant for Hawaiian pizza. Or is that Alex? I get those two confused.
