The Queue: Pencils down

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.

No particular reason for this image, just that I think Dalton Ghetti's pencil-tip mini-sculptures are amazing.

Eregos ftw! asked:

Is the pathing for flights in old world better then it is currently in live? I don't want to fly for 20 mins when the place I want to go is only 2 zones over...

Yep, flight pathing has been improved in several zones, largely due to the addition of plenty of new flight paths in said zones.

Orkchop asked:

Is it possible to have the WoW Insider Show 5 days a week? Maybe you guys could just ride with my on my commute to and from work?

OH, and could Robin, Adam, Alex, Allison, Lisa or Liz Harper be a guest host one time? Oh and more Anne, too, of course.

I know you're only joking, at least about the first part, but man, that'd be a lot of work. Especially for Adam, who has to edit the audio. We're not against doing the show more than once per week in the future, though.

shotgun.shenanigans asked:

We know in Cataclysm we'll have to visit a dungeon's entrance for LFD to allow us to queue for it. Question is, how easy is it going to be to get to some dungeons that are in enemy territory? Is it going to automatically let us queue for Stockades/RFC without visiting the entrances if we're the opposite faction? What about things like Scarlet Monastery or Gnomergan? How difficult is it going to be for a player of the opposite faction and appropriate level to visit those dungeon entrances?

Once you're of the appropriate level to enter Deadmines and Ragefire, you're automatically eligible to queue for them, regardless of whether you've discovered the entrance. My goblin can do Deadmines or Ragefire at 16. I'm not sure about Stockades.

Draev asked:

Since we know we can't customize our human forms when creating worgen ... Is it possible to then go to the barber shop and customize the human aspect or will that change the worgen side as well?

Human forms for worgen work the exact same way that the Human Illusion in Caverns of Time works -- each customization option you pick for your character has a corresponding number to it in the database, and all the illusion does is use those same numbers for your human form. It stands to reason that you could change your customization options for either form, but they'd likely be tied together. We haven't heard anything about whether you can go into a barber shop in human form, though.
