The Queue: For the troubled tooth, for the troubled tooth

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.

Isn't that what they were saying in that Jet Set Radio song? That's what it sounded like. My tooth hurts!

Glasscannon asked:

Why does Blizzard seem so desperate to discourage us from 2v2 arena these days? Am I right in saying the highest arena gear can only be got from 3v3 and 5v5?

You're right: Blizzard is discouraging you from 2v2 arena. The developers directly stated that they wish they hadn't introduced that bracket due to the incredible difficulty in balancing encounters between teams of two. You also have the 2v2 arena bracket to thank for some of the most ridiculous nerfs to PvE gameplay in WoW's history.

Andrew asked:

What address should we add to our contact list so if we were to win a prize the e-mail doesn't go straight to the spam folder?

This depends on the contest, though most contest contacts are done through an or address.

Covnam asked:

Two quick dungeon questions. In general, is there a difference in difficulty with the various dungeons on heroic? Is heroic Tol'Vir harder than heroic Stonecore? Or are they about the same overall? And which, if any, dungeons on normal give rep while wearing tabards?

Well, the idea is that all heroics are supposed to be around the same difficulty level, though it definitely doesn't quite work like that. There are some easier heroics (Lost City, Vortex Pinnacle) and some harder ones (Grim Batol). Any heroic is manageable with a good group, though. Your mileage may vary.

Any dungeon in the level 85 bracket will give rep with tabards, so Lost City, Halls of Origination, and Grim Batol.
