The Queue: No

Alex Ziebart

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

For the curious, the original title of today's edition of The Queue was "The Queue: Adam if you skip me and write a Queue today I'm going to shiv you IRL because I'm seriously not still asleep and will have it written in a couple of hours." Luckily, he didn't skip me, so he gets to live another day.

Terethall asked...

"Will the newer 5-mans (ToC and the Icecrown Citadel 5-mans) be included in the random dungeon tool in 3.3?

Because it seems like a huge difficulty difference when you could go from extremely easy instances like Heroic CoS to extremely difficult (comparatively) Heroic instances like ToC and the IC instances."

Yes, they will be included, but Blizzard has mentioned here and there that the tool will be smart about that sort of thing. You'll need a certain level of gear for it to throw you at Heroic Trial of the Crusader or Heroic Pit of Saron. If you're a brand new 80 that's mostly wearing greens and auction house bought blues, it's much more likely to stick you into a Heroic Utgarde Keep run (for example) than it is one of the more recently added dungeons.

tyler asked...

"Do you think we'll be seeing Cho'gall as a raid boss when Cataclysm launches? He seems to be featured in the comics as a leader of the Twilight's Hammer, empowered by C'Thun. Do you think C'Thun will reemerge as a raid boss as well?"

I have very little doubt Cho'gall will be a raid boss in Cataclysm, unless the comic goes right on ahead and kills him off. Considering the comic splits into Horde and Alliance stories focusing more on the little guys in a couple of issues, I'm not sure there's time for it. Cho'gall will probably be to Deathwing what Kel'thuzad was to the Lich King, or Lady Vashj was to Illidan.

As for C'Thun, from what I understand he's just something of a disembodied force right now. It's probably much more likely that we'll see his influence creeping around for awhile rather than straight fighting him in Cataclysm. I could be wrong.

Rexton asked...

"What's the proper way to eat a chicken wing?"

I don't know what this has to do with WoW, but here you go.

Mihn asked...

"Why did they remove the Bulwark flight path? I know there had to be one there at one time. Any time you fly from UC to anywhere in EP-WP it swoops low over the bulwark as if it was going to stop there at one time."

I'm pretty sure the Bulwark has never had a flight path. The first character I ever played was an Undead Rogue, and the Bulwark certainly didn't have one back in 2004. However, it is getting one in patch 3.3. So as far as I know, it was never removed, but they are adding one.

Nathan asked...

"We haven't seen any serious queues in quite a while... Isn't it time to re-name this feature to something else?"


Vjax asked...

"Are there any daily quests on the PTR for the Ashen Verdict?"


Rarewulf asked...

"Using the new LFG system, will you be able to queue up for dungeons below your level? Say, I'm level 80 and want to queue for Magisters Terrace. Is that possible?"
