The Queue: Patch 4.0.1 bonanza

Alex Ziebart

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

Today is our first full day with patch 4.0.1 on live servers. In today's edition of The Queue, we'll be tackling a few frequently asked questions about the patch. Some of them will be aimed at people who haven't been able to log on yet, and some will be aimed at those who have but are still unsure of the answers. Some of the questions were taken from the What is Patch 4.0.1 post yesterday rather than the comments of The Queue. As a warning, most of my answers are very short because that's all that's required.


Cortland asked:

Is the built-in Power Auras that shows procs around your character in this patch?

For the most part, yes. Not everything that should have an alert has one, but most things are covered.

Irontoof asked:

Why do I live in Europe!?


Many people asked:

Are the new class/race combos in this patch?

Nope, sorry. You will need to wait until patch 4.0.3 for that. This patch has very little of the actual adventure-type content in it. Patch 4.0.1 is mostly about tools and mechanics. Patch 4.0.3 will introduce the new class combos and all of that sort of thing.

thpthpthp1 asked:

When are people gonna stop asking about heirlooms?

Never ever. Also, saying your name out loud makes my tongue feel funny.

bonelip asked:

I have 485 Dalaran cooking tokens from the cooking daily. Are those being converted to anything or are they essentially useless after the expansion arrives?

They are not being converted to anything in Cataclysm. You could buy Northern Spices to help alts level cooking, I suppose. Or you could buy a Chef's Hat if you haven't yet.

Caallis asked:

Cataclysm, is that little shit William still running around stealing Donna's doll?

No, actually! William had the tables turned on him. Donna stole his Grindgear Gorilla and is keeping it away from him.

Yes, I know the last two questions had nothing to do with patch 4.0.1. Want to fight about it?
