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

Have we mentioned lately that we're positively getting our asses kicked by Cataclysm heroics?

Emile asked:

With flying in Azeroth coming up, we should be able to fly to those dancing trolls you can see when you fly from Darnassus to Moonglade (if I remember the right FP, I'm sure it's somewhere over Darkshore). Will those trolls still be there in Cataclysm?

Yes, you'll be able to fly to Shatterspear Vale, where you can see the Shatterspear trolls joining the Horde and attacking the night elves, who've just had every single settlement in Darkshore obliterated by the cataclysm.

DarkSpade asked:

Asric and Jadaar haven't been having any new adventures in a while in the live game. Are they up to anything new in Cata?
Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that way.

Oweonsito asked:

I have a question. Since the Argent Tournament is grouped with the other world events, does that mean when Cataclysm comes out, it will no longer be available?

The Argent Tournament still exists in Cataclysm as part of the Northrend "timeline," so to speak. In other words, you can still prance around on ponies for no reason and help Tirion get a bunch of people needlessly murdered. You just won't be able to get Gilneas or Bilgewater Cartel rep for it.
WoWie Zowie asked:

Are there any new ways to increase my reputation with the various goblin factions in Cata? Or must I really do the Dire Maul ogre suit quest over and over?

There are plenty of new quests at new Steamwheedle hubs in the expansion, as well as the updated quests at existing goblin hubs.

Skizzit asked:

Any word yet on how we will purchase heirloom gear once all the emblems get turned into justice points?

I believe you answered your own question. Here are the prices, from commenter Aurilia:

  • Chest/shoulders are 435 justice points
  • Weapons are 435 justice points, 544 justice points, or 707 justice points depending on weapon type
  • Trinkets are 544 justice points
