The Queue: Earthinating the peasants

Michael Sacco

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

We've reached critical pop culture reference mass here, folks. We're going to run out of pop culture to reference in quests and NPCs. It's only a matter of time now. Soon NPCs will have to reference internet memes that don't exist yet.

McDreamy asked:

My question may not be answerable since the level cap is still 83: any idea where the badge vendors are going to be? Are they going to be in every capital city, or just the lead one (Org for Horde, Stormwind? for alliance)? Or are they going to be at the raid entrance like ToC?

They'll be in Stormwind and Orgrimmar. They currently exist in the beta but can't be interacted with.

Teron asked:

I know there are cat and bear forms for worgen and trolls, but are there different flight forms?

If there are, we haven't seen them yet.

Freyal asked:

Any chance that in a future patch the developers might "Cata-ize" outland and to a lesser extent Northend?

From all the glorious things I've heard about leveling 1-60 now in
Cataclysm, I imagine that outlands will suffer the death knight effect all over again. Ie: a bit of a let down to go from cool questing back to boring old fashioned questing...

Devs have commented that they'd like to give Outland and Northrend the Cataclysm treatment, but that if they do, it won't happen for a while.

Klausse asked:

Has fishing been made 'easier' and 'more fun' in the 'Clysm beta, or should we chalk it up as being this expansion's Dance Studio (i.e., not implemented at all)?

We get asked this question at least three times every day, and I'm finally going to give the incredibly boring answer: nothing has happened to fishing yet.

DIngo asked:

A question for The Queue: I used to like fish. After years of eating it I detest the things. I shudder on raid nights knowing ill have to down a half dozen week old rancid fish feasts. Has there been any indication of diversity in raid wide food buffs in Cataclysm? Maybe a nice pancake feast, or chicken fettuccine. A little carbo-loading to keep my feet moving out of the fire.

Hope you like eating dragons, then. Well, broiled dragons, anyway.
