What are the areas Bilgewater Harbor and Gallywix Pleasure Palace used for? Will they be used in future patches ??
Bilgewater Harbor is utilized as a quest hub for low-level Horde players in Azshara; the Pleasure Palace, on the other hand, isn't currently used for anything. Perhaps in a future content patch, we'll have to take down Gallywix, whose status as the goblin faction leader seems tenuous at best.
I've read that Silithus hasn't been changed at all, except making Ahn'Qiraj its own zone. True? Why?
Definitely true. Silithus is untouched. The response from Blizzard on the beta forums was essentially "we ran out of time." Maybe we'll see an overhaul in a later patch, or at least I hope so; Silithus is so bad it's nearly unplayable compared to the rest of the game.
When you tie another person's loot roll, what determines who gets it? I have been on the losing end of more than one tied loot roll so I am extra curious.
There's a hidden internal roll to determine a tie-breaker.
I apologize if this has been asked before, but has it been confirmed that you do not need Alchemy to use the Vial of the Sands? There is someone on my server with that recipe and I really want it on my main (non-alchemist) but I don't want to spend all that gold if it doesn't work on her for some reason. Also, does it count towards the mount achievement? I wouldn't think so, since its a vial ... but who knows?
You don't need to be an alchemist to use the vial, and it does indeed count toward the mount achievement.
