The Queue: Pebble

Michael Sacco

Welcome back to The Queue, our 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.

Pebble: the most adorable non-combat pet. If you disagree, you are wrong.

Missemilyblack asked:

Will WoW Insider bring back the Class 101 articles once Cataclysm is in full swing? This may be pathetic, but I rely on those articles heavily when I'm trying out a new spec. It's so nice for a casual like me to get quick advice about rotations, glyphs and talents without much mucking around, and having them updated to include level 85 spells and the new talents would really be a godsend.

Yep, we plan to have new 101 articles for Cataclysm once class balance has stabilized a bit. We really like the 101 articles and we're glad they help people who need it; we just need to make sure that the new ones won't become obsolete too quickly.

Theconman asked:

Question for The Queue, or anyone ... What is the reason for the different color schemes of armor sets? Is it for spec, race, faction? I never really knew what it was ...

First off, sorry your show got canceled. The recolors for most tier sets are either used for heroic versions (à la tier 10) or off-set pieces that drop in the same dungeon tier. Sometimes there are recolors that never get used for anything! It's just a just-in-case kind of thing.

Zheo asked:

Why do so many races (humans, blood elf males, orc males, gnomes, dwarves, Forsaken female) "target" cast with their left hands as compared to the right? Is there some inherent magic reason or are all our toons southpaws?

Though I'm not sure there's an actual written reason for this somewhere, my educated guess is that the right hand is kept free to use a weapon.

Kaminari asked:

Do you think WoW will support 3D in the not too distant future?

It already does, with select NVIDIA cards and a monitor with a 120Hz refresh rate.

Tim asked:

How about that Cataclysm commercial during a football game -- that's weird, right? Like mixing a hot dogs and flan. Beer and mouthwash. Affliction shirts and wizard hats. And so on.

Nerds don't like sports? Pssh. Haven't you ever heard of fantasy football?
