The Queue: Heroic as heck

Michael Sacco

Welcome back to The Queue, the 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.

I'm ready for heroics. Are you?

Astalnar asked:

Is there any chance worgen will get a unique DPS form (wolf instead of cat), same way as trolls got bat instead of bird?

Worgen already have a unique model for cat form, the same way trolls do. Worgen also got a unique flight form. If you're asking if Blizzard is going to scrap the unique cat form model they already gave worgen in favor of something else, the answer is assuredly no.

enache_andrey asked:

Any signs of the new Lich King (Bolvar Fordragon) in Cataclysm?

None yet.

John asked:

I have been disenchanting green random drops and quest rewards that are not upgrades or that are replaced. Lots of essences. Very very little dust. Also, more dust from weapons/shields/trinkets than from armor, which is backwards from the typical DE results for original/BC/LK items. Is this expected?

Right now it looks like dusts and essences have switched places in terms of rarity, though since we haven't had comment from Blizzard, we can't be sure that it's intended yet.

Neuropox asked:

Any way I can get my bank alt that nifty top hat that you get in the worgen starting quests? I know that one is BoP but is there another somewhere my main can farm up for my lowly bank alt NAZDAQ?

There is a tailoring recipe called High Society Top Hat that produces an item identical to Lord Walden's Top Hat.

Velleekwitay asked:

Why does Greymane hang out in Stormwind while the rest of the worgen reside on the other side of the world in Darnassus?

If you're in Darnassus, so is Greymane. If you're in Stormwind, he's there too. The entry into Darnassus for worgen indicates that Greymane is going to Stormwind to ask King Wrynn for help, which he provides -- if you bring a Horde character through Silverpine, you'll see that the 7th Legion is there fighting for Gilneas. The 7th Legion is the absolute best army that the Alliance has to offer, so their presence there says something.

Cudds asked:

Can you tell me how to pronounce Vash'jir? I usually say, "VASH-gir, VASH-jeer, VAG-i-sil... You know, the underwater one."

Pretend you raided Serpentshrine Cavern, killed Lady Vashj and looted her ear. In your bag you find a Vashj'ir.

Alternatively, it rhymes with "I think the best character on DS9 was Doctor Bashir."
