The Queue: Seeing Azeroth from the Black Temple


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.

Today in the Queue we visit the Black Temple, hard-mode raids, selling your tanking services for gold, and answer a question about live chat channel with the WoW Insider Show.

Good times had by all! Remember to leave your questions in the comments, and we'll try to answer them (as will fellow commenters).

Andostre asked ...

"Is it true that a player can see Azeroth in the sky from the Black Temple? If so, why? Are Outland and Azeroth physically close to each other in space?"

After some research and help from my co-workers, yes, you can see Azeroth from inside the Black Temple. I don't have a reason why this is possible, but the picture at the front of the Queue is what you can see when you are inside any open sky area (full image).

Azeroth and Draenor (the planet where the Black Temple is located) are technically in a different dimension. However, as Alex notes, "Different dimension to the denizens of Azeroth could be 'It's down the street but I can't get there myself.'"

Andrew asked ...

"If you attempt a boss on hard mode and cannot down them, do you have the option to reset it back to normal mode?"


Andyjay asked ...

"If I am on my tank and sell instant random dungeon queues, is that a bannable offense? There seems to be requests for this on my server, but I don't want to do it if it will get me banned."

From my understanding, no, this isn't a bannable offense. People have been paying for groups for years. All you're doing is continuing the trend. Just make sure you're having them pay you with in-game gold; anything out of game will get you banned.

BigBadGooze asked ...

"Any plans to bring the WoW Insider Show show to uStream again? The chat channel demands this."

Not really. While we loved the interaction the chat channel provided, doing a strictly recorded show allows us to produce a more professional product. A live show has a lot more demands than a recorded show; and removing that component allows us to focus on other areas of the show that need improvements. I can say this with some authority, as my job before was producing live concerts. Live shows are awesome, but are 100 times more work than recorded shows.

We do plan on doing some live shows, particularly around the time of BlizzCon.
