The Queue: 4.0.1 is here edition


Welcome back to The Queue, our 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.

Patch day is here! Patch day is here! I'm excited and using lots of exclamation points!!!


My entire inbox asked:

Is Patch 4.0.1 coming today?


Charlie asked (commented):

Quick note on the heirlooms. Although you are correct about the inflation of points, I believe you can still get them with champion tokens at the same price they are now, which is fairly reasonable.

Yes, but Argent Tournament and Champion's Seal farming are both so incredibly dull and drab. Anyway, there are cooler things to buy with Champions Seals, like those cool banners.

PiRATE7 asked:

Will heirlooms boost XP from 80 to 85?

No. There are new heirlooms for this, specifically head, leg and cloak heirlooms. Your existing heirlooms will still work from levels 1 through 80.

SG asked:

Is there any news on when the armory will reflect the 4.0.1 changes to stats, gear and ratings?

I would assume that 4.0.1 will be reflected as soon as the data from the servers is available for armory processing. Blizzard is pretty good about stuff like that, since the armory is really just a way to view information the server already spits out.

Have a great patch day, all!
