The Queue: We didn't start the fire


Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Adam Holisky, senior editor at WoW Insider, will be your host today.

This is a really cute video put together. It's not Grade A machinima in terms of video production quality, but the concept behind it is up there with Blind in its "hey sweet, this is WoW!" quality ... At least in my opinion.

Five days here, folks, then the big event. Let's answer some of your questions.

Furry asked:

Will the limit to number of justice points go up at all as we level or when we hit 85, or will it always be capped at 4,000?

It was capped at 4,000 when I was level 85 in the beta. It's likely the cap will remain. But that shouldn't be a problem, in so much as you can still get the gear you want. You just won't be able to stockpile tons of justice points.

Wreck asked:

How is water combat changing in Cataclysm? After the 10,000th time taking a portal on Dreamwalker last night, the thought occurred to me that I don't want to level in Vashj'ir unless changes are coming.

Water combat feels just like normal combat but with a vertical dimension added in. Vashj'ir isn't bad at all, it's actually a really fun and compelling zone to play through. It'll be the first zone I do in Cataclysm as well, given that I'm expecting everyone to run to Mount Hyjal.

You also get an underwater mount early on, and that provides a lot of utility throughout the zone. It's really an amazing zone, and Blizzard has done an above average job at it. It's like your playing through Echo the Dolphin on WoW, and that's just fracken awesome.

Psychoraven asked:

Will worgen death knights and higher-level characters who race change to worgen be able to learn the Running Wild ability?


Szilgyi asked:

Has Blizzard announced if it will change tabards from counting as a normal inventory slot?

For right now, tabards are still taking up an inventory slot. Blizzard has said that it eventually wants to move them to a keyring-based holder, but that's likely not going to happen for a bit.
