The Queue: Dala-ran out of portals


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. Mathew McCurley will be your host today.

The portals are gone! Run for your lives! Actually, I don't really care -- that's what mages are for, right? To boss around and hound for hours until they take me to the Undercity? What's that? You want a tip? Oh, come now, it's just pressing one button, and I'm thrifty and mean. Start casting, slave! Hey, it's Queue time!

Pyromelter asked:

What's going to happen with soul shard bags, like the Abyssal Bag? It's 32 slots so I can't image they'd just convert it into a normal bag, but I haven't heard what will happen to them.

So far, soul shard bags are turning into regular bags of lower slot count. You obviously won't be getting a 32-slot bag out of the conversion, but hey, you're totally getting more bag slots! Like, real bag slots! That can hold items! Isn't that awesome?

Quill2006 asked:

Sooo ... regular or collector's edition? Which one, and why? I'm torn.

I've been buying the WoW Collector's editions since the beginning, so if I ever stopped, they would look weird on the shelf. Blizzard has me, for totally cosmetic reasons. The collector's edition has got:

  • art book, 176 pages
  • Lil' Deathwing in-game pet
  • Cataclysm soundtrack
  • Deathwing mousepad
  • WoW TCG cards
To me, that's worth it. Plus, I need to keep my expansion whelps set up to date.

omedon666 asked:

Upon looking at the worgen female screenshots, I noticed some circular icons next to the customization options, focusing on her two faces. Is this a toggle between the two forms? Can we actually customize our worgen's two forms separately now?

Currently in beta, the choices you make for one form affect the other form -- kind of like how tauren/night elf skin color affects the color that your bear or cat comes out as. This could change, but we don't currently have that information.

JiBJUB asked:

What's with just the one "t", Mat? Please 'splain. No -- not enough time. Please sum up.

My mother liked one "t" instead of two, for purely cosmetic reasons.

Devo_AS asked:

Will those silly people that don't purchase the expansion get full access to the new (and improved?) post-
Cataclysm 1-60 Azeroth?

If you do not purchase the expansion, you get access to all the new content in old-new world Azeroth. You will not, however, be able to create worgen or goblin characters, potentially may not be able to fly in Azeroth and will not have access to the new 80+ content.

Michael asked:

Hey Mat! Long time reader, first time questioner! I have officially begun Kyle Watch! With the coming of the new Azeroth, I was curious if we've gotten any word from the blues if the various make-a-wishes and memorials would remain after the sundering. It would be a shame if the game, with such a rich history of recognizing the memories of the players and creators, were to lose these small touches. Having them in there is one of the major factors of my continual play. It made Blizzard awesome.

I don't think even Deathwing is evil enough to hit these memorials and monuments.
