The Queue: In which Amy Pond is profiled


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.

Yesterday I called Lady GaGa and told her that we had to break up, because Amy and I have fallen madly in love. Now my arch-rival and nemesis, Michael Saccovich, has claimed that Amy agreed to be his GF, but I don't think it's real. He's kind of bad wolf insane like that.

More Amy Pond after the break. Along with WoW stuff, which is why you're reading this article ... sure.

AltairAntares asked:

"When was the public beta of WOTLK released compared to when it was released to stores to be sold? Do you think Cataclysm will parallel that?"

Beta registration for Wrath opened up on July 3, 2008. Wrath was released 133 days (just over 4 months) later on Nov. 13, 2008. I would predict that the Cataclysm beta would take just as long, if not less, to complete. However there is no guarantee, and I don't have any inside info on this.

I think the beta for Cataclysm will be shorter because Blizzard has really learned how to refine their development process. They've got it down to a science, and such laser-sharp precision on their part tends to lead to things being released on a shorter time frame.

Gamer am I asked:

"Why do people sell bags on the AH for more than their equivalent price to buy from a vendor? When I see six-slot bags on the AH for ten or sometimes 25 silver when I know I can buy those bags from a vendor for five silver, I just don't get it."

Someone will likely buy them. Who? Either people in a hurry and don't care that they're spending unnecessary gold, or people who don't know they can be picked up elsewhere for a fraction of the price. Is it unethical? Debatable. It's just taking advantage of two niches in the markets: those who don't care (or are too lazy), and those who are uninformed.

James asked:

"Are worgen going to have a British Accent?


Amy Pond will be voicing the female worgen from the Tardis, although she likes to cosplay as a female belf.
