The Queue: Officially on notice

Michael Sacco

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

Adam, when you get back from vacation, you're going to write the Queue for a week after causing 220+ comments to be written about sea mice. You're on notice!

DarkFinch asked...

Is there any time when Army of the Dead is appropriate in a 5-man instance?

I guess that depends on your definition of "appropriate." If by that, you mean "hilarious," then let me introduce you to a little game called Dragon Roulette.

Use Army on any dragon boss (non-raid) -- such as Cyanigosa or Keristrasza -- and see who you can get cleaved/breathed to death. Best used with friends with senses of humor.

In every other case, though, Army is mostly a "fun" ability (yes, I know it has legitimate uses). It can be used on any fight with non-tauntable bosses or adds, which unfortunately isn't a very big number, or any fight without a huge risk of death if a boss changes targets. That means no swipes, cleaves, breaths, or frontal cones.

Oni Stardust asked...

"How much Lockpicking skill do I need to pick Loch Modan?"

As the author of Ask a Faction Leader, I approve of this question. But it's way too silly to answer. Dilemma! Publishing anyway. I'm a loose cannon!

Tokkar asked...

"When is going to FINALLY remove "Tale's [sic] from the Lion's Pride Inn" in its drop-down?'s under the "Lore" section, in case you didn't know.

Just curious."

I won't bore you with mundane details, so the answer is "very soon," with an addendum of "you should also see newer columns and categories in the pull-down menu from here on in." We're pretty excited about it. Watch for improvements this week.

guillaume.dupuis asked...

"What's the deal with the bugs right before getting to Putricide besides spending a few minutes in there?"

I blame the QA department.

Evilsean asked...

"Here's a question I am too lazy to research: Can I put my WoW discs on multiple computers (like MS Office or Norton Anti-Virus) and just create new accounts or do I have to buy a new WoW box plus the expansions if I wish to put it on a different computer?"

Your account is good on any computer -- you can install WoW anywhere and, as long as you're able to log in/load the game, you can play.
