The Queue: More on crowd control

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.

When you don't use crowd control, you make this blood elf I stole from one of Matt Low's column headers cry. You don't want her to cry anymore, do you?

Kirin asked:

Why don't groups consider Mind Control a form of crowd control? Nobody seems to let me do it.

Because they are very, very dense people. I may be biased since I'm a former shadow priest, but I think Mind Control is the single most powerful CC ability in PvE when dealing with Humanoids. Heroic mobs hurt. They hurt a lot. Why wouldn't you want one on your team? It's not just the damage, either. A lot of the mobs you can mind control come with awesome heals or buffs for your party.

Every single group running heroics with a Shadow Priest should be utilizing Mind Control. I'd prioritize it above Polymorph in the crowd control hierarchy.

Randomize asked:

How does the offense win Tol Barad? All I've ever seen are defensive victories.

That's an incredibly good question. The offense needs to cap all of the towers in the zone to win, and I honestly have not seen it happen firsthand. I'm sure it does happen, I've just never seen it. It's far too easy to defend right now, since the defense just needs to hold onto one single tower. Personally, I foresee some hefty balance changes for Tol Barad on the horizon.

chibiwill asked:

As a tank, I'm tired of clicking and putting markers on mobs that way. Do you have a good macro or solution to mark mobs faster?

As a pair of commenters pointed out, you can key bind those markers in your Key Binding options. Most of the tanks I know bind markers to their numpad on the right side of the keyboard.

Helston asked:

Whatever happened to The Daily Blues?

It's back.

Mygirlsguns asked:

should I be sheeping stuff or hitting the keyboard with my face so sparkals kill man for epic loots

How I kill man for loot?
