The Queue: Long live the shaman

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.

It has officially happened, ladies and gentlemen. World of Warcraft is dead and Transformice has killed it. Who needs gold or epics when I can buy a tophat with cheese? I'll catch ya guys later, I'm rerolling mouse shaman. Anvil God is totally OP.

Wix asked:

"When we make worgen, will we be able to design both the human and the worgen appearances? Or will it be like druids and hair color?"

It's going to be like druids and hair color, or when you get turned into a human in the Caverns of Time. You only choose what you look like as a worgen, and then it will just convert over to what those options would have been if you were designing a human.

Let's say you're rolling a female worgen and you pick Worgen Hair #5 and Worgen Earrings #3. When you use your racial to shift into a human, you will end up with Human Hair #5 and Human Earrings #3. I suspect that someone at some point will create a worgen to human conversion chart for all of the options if you're really worried about what your human will look like.

ccbutch asked:

"Has there been any word on Blizzard's top lists? Did they scrap the idea or has it just been down recently?"

As far as I'm aware, Blizzard hasn't said anything about it. It just stopped working one day. I used to check those lists religiously, so it was a sad day when they ceased to function. Where else can we learn about things such as the Great Death Knight Massacre of 2009?

JayPea asked:

"Do you think Blizz would ever implement a 'bail out' option for people on flying taxis?"

They already did. Level to 60, train flying, then bail off of your flying mount whenever you please!

Bgranger asked:

"Are there any plans by Blizzard to release an iPhone/iPod app to connect to the new chat system?"

As far as we know, they are not working on something like this. However, I would love it if they did. The biggest thing I want in the entire game is the ability to talk to my guild from outside of the game. Whether that's a web app, a mobile app or some other way to hook into that communication, I want it and am willing to pay more money than I'd like to admit for the capability.
