The Queue: Wake up

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.

Am I talking about Alan Wake or falling asleep with The Queue open in my editing software? In your heart, you know the truth.

Borayar asked:

Just finished the Sun Oblisk quest in Uldum. Why is the meteor beam shooting toward Azeroth's core? Titan engine? Ragnaros' goblin BBQ? Twilight Hammer's community spa tub?

Uldum conceals machinery that can be used to re-originate Azeroth -- that is, scrap the whole darn thing and start over. It's likely that this is these are the devices that would've responded to Algalon's request should we have failed to change his mind.

Styopa asked:

Why don't they just raise Cairne Bloodhoof? I mean really, no lvl 14 priests anywhere around?

It's important to make a distinction between game mechanics and lore. You couldn't use a Phoenix Down on Aeris either.

Thedoctor2031 asked:

I've been wondering about raids. Which raid are we supposed to go to first? Are all of them of the same difficulty level? Argaloth wasn't to difficult of an encounter when my group tried him, but Halfus absolutely destroyed us. Magmaw also looks rather easy but than the Omnitron Defence System looks rather intimidating. We don't even think we should try council at the Four Winds. Any thoughts?

All of the currently-available raids are on the same tier, so they should provide similar challenges, though some specific encounters will definitely be more difficult than others (just like every tier before this). And, just like Wrath's Vault of Archavon, encounters in Baradin Hold will be much less difficult than encounters in "real" raids.

Biggjudicem asked:

For the 12 days of Winter Veil giveaway, are all the winners going to be announced at the end, or is is when each individual 'day' ends is the winner informed right away?

We inform the winners privately, though it may not be until a few days or more after the contest ends.

DarkFinch asked:

Characters have been able to buy racial war-mounts using Honor points for quite some time. As a horde character, I've managed to get all 5 mounts... But now I'm wondering, why hasn't Blizzard given a war-version of the Goblin trike? Has Blizz mentioned anything about adding such a mount to the game?

Black elekks and hawkstriders weren't available until a few patches into Burning Crusade, so if we're getting a PvP version of the goblin trike, it may not be for a while yet.
