The Queue: Shattering is over, time to go home

Alex Ziebart

Welcome back to The Queue, the 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 a very special edition of The Queue, ladies and gentlemen. I believe it's the first one ever written on an iPhone. The Shattering delayed my daily walk, so time for both had to be found. Enjoy!

primal.geek asked:

Why, after the Shattering, do Dalaran mobs near the crater still feel the need to attack me? Sure, I'm a member of the Horde, but I'm also exalted with their city. Can't they give me a break for once?

Well, member of the Horde, I'm sure the citizens of Dalaran near the crater would love to give you a break ... as soon as the Horde reciprocates. The Horde has been killing those guys from vanilla WoW all the way up through Wrath and have never actually stopped. Go run a character through Silverpine Forest right now, post-Shattering. The faction of Dalaran left in the Eastern Kingdoms is still completely at war with the Horde. Of all the neighbors to have, Sylvanas is the worst. Garrosh might not even be as aggressive as she can be.

masteroaktree asked:

What exactly is that metal lower jaw on Deathwing? Is it a plate of armor or is a replacement jaw because his fell off?

All of that armor on Deathwing is there to hold him together. The amount of power he's taken in from outside sources like the Demon Soul and the Old Gods is quite literally tearing him apart. The bands of metal riveted to his flesh certainly work like armor, but they're there to hold his body together. He is bristling with so much power that if he weren't tethered together by metal freaking plates, he would be rent to pieces.

Cern asked:

So who else will be rolling a tauren paladin today?

Not me! I threw the decision of what I'd roll first to Twitter and they decided dwarven shaman. I don't actually like dwarves and I already have a level 80 shaman, but what the people want is what the people get.

Many readers complained:

Dang, I wanted to run Molten Core and Blackwing Lair one more time before the Shattering! I can't believe I missed my last chance to see the classic raids!

Whoa there, folks. Not all of the classic raids went away with patch 4.0.3a. Only Zul'Gurub was removed in this patch. Every other classic raid is sticking around for Cataclysm! You didn't lose out on your chance to run those raids at all. Which is good, because my paladin has been soloing Molten Core for approximately an eternity and hasn't seen either Binding for Thunderfury.

Stupid, fiery jerks.
