The Queue: My pet is adorable too

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.

Mat and Gray aren't the only ones with adorable pets. I can play that game, too! Look at that Roomba up there. It's so cute, what with its glowing cycloptic eye, its massive, unyielding grin and its manic, electronic chittering. Just adorable.

lazymangaka asked:

What is the most efficient way to grind guild reputation?

If running instances as a guild is an option for you, that seems to be the best way. Downing heroic bosses gives a righteous chunk of guild reputation, and if you have a solid group, you can get capped for the week in one or two nights of playing.

If you're looking to accrue reputation while playing solo, just go questing. If you already have Cataclysm Loremaster, tackle daily quests. I always boggled at the idea of doing 25 daily quests per day in The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King; there was no way in hell I was going to do 25 of those in one day, but sometimes I do it without trying in Cataclysm. The daily quests in this expansion are extremely fast, especially if you hit the Tol Barad quests with a friend or two.

Drob10 asked:

Why do I hate cats so much?

Because you are a blight on all peoples everywhere.

RotcGamer09 asked:

Does WoW Insider have an official IRC channel?

No. We don't have an IRC channel, and we don't have any chat channel at all for the general audience. We do use Campfire internally to coordinate the team, and sometimes we'll open that up to the public on very special occasions, but that doesn't happen very often. It's extremely important to our team's workflow that our chat channel isn't a madhouse. There are so many of us on staff nowadays that when things really get hot, like patch days, we have to shunt all of the non-work chatter to a different channel so it doesn't interrupt the people actually working.

We've kicked around the idea of a WoW Insider IRC channel a few times, but it isn't an idea that got a lot of traction. It would be fun to have, but the senior editors on the site can already spend 12+ hours per day on the site. The idea of adding chat channel moderation onto our daily to-do list is absolutely terrifying.

It's a fun idea, and deep down, I would love for such a channel to exist, but it probably isn't going to happen in any official capacity until days last longer than 24 hours.

Visionary asked:

What is the best tavern in Azeroth?

Whatever the one in the Dwarven Quarter of Stormwind is called, because setting your hearth to the Trade District's inn is for losers.

Coleur asked:

I heard from a guildmate that the sea turtle mount could now be fished up from any Northrend or Cataclysm fishing pool. Can you confirm/deny this?

According to the information I've been reading on El's Anglin', you can indeed catch the sea turtle in Cataclysm fishing pools. It seems you can also catch the Tome of Polymorph: Turtle in Cataclysm fishing pools.

Grovinofdarkhour asked:

Catherine Zeta-Jones or Salma Hayek?

Salma Hayek. I'm not sure there's an appropriate way for me to elaborate on my answer, so I'll just leave that there.
