The Queue: Minnie the Moocher

Alex Ziebart

Welcome back to The Queue,'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.

I'm not much of a Jazz person, so when I set out to counter the John Coltrane that Adam used in The Queue yesterday, I was a little worried. Fortunately, while digging through my music collection to find something useful, I remembered that I had a trump card up my sleeves. Old Betty Boop cartoons, some of the most disturbing things you will ever see in your life. All of the best ones come packed with some incredibly old school Jazz. Now, some candy for your eyes and ears: Cab Calloway's Minnie the Moocher in a Betty Boop cartoon.

Docp asked...

"What happened to the Hunter column, Scattered Shots?"

I'm glad you asked! It just made its glorious comeback yesterday, with a brand new writer that some of you may recognize. Go give the latest Scattered Shots a read.

Binge asked...

"I'm going to let my account lapse for the summer (maybe longer). Will my armory profile and ability to comment on the official WoW forums end when my subscription expires?"

As mentioned in the comments by kalatash, you'll immediately lose access to the forums when your account lapses. Your Armory profile won't disappear immediately, but it will eventually become hidden if they haven't changed anything in the last few months. When you resubscribe, both of those things will come back.

0756 asked...

"Do you think that Blizzard will take the soulbinding aspect off of either Vyrkul Bones or the Fate Runes they are exchanged for in a future patch?"

I don't see why they would. The Fate Runes are just a little bonus you get while questing in Icecrown, to make questing in Icecrown easier and more interesting. I'm pretty sure they don't want them sold and traded or anything like that.

AyaJulia asked...

"Around Azeroth has a disclaimer at the end of each article: "Please, no more battleground scoreboards, gold seller ads, or pictures of the Ninja Turtles in Dalaran." When are you going to put one in THIS column that says "Please, no more questions about pandaren"? You obviously need one."

You're right.

Please, people. No more questions about Pandaren. Just look around the site, you'll find your answer.

Komorado asked...

"How many hits does the website receive everyday?"

Enough that I've come to learn that Alexa is pretty inaccurate when compared to internal figures. I don't think that I'm allowed to give those numbers, though. It's higher than what Alexa says, that's all that I'll say.

Hyacinthe asked...

"Why are there so many poo-related quests in WoW?"

Because everybody poops, Hyacinthe. It's only natural.
