The Queue: All aboard the knuckle train to Fist Planet

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.

I really hope the rest of you guys caught the Adventure Time marathon on Cartoon Network yesterday, too. There is no better time than Adventure Time.

Darasen asked:

Do items like Mithril Spurs and Carrot on a Stick make a worgen's running wild ability move faster (where level-appropriate, of course)? If so, am I the only one that finds the idea of kicking yourself to go faster or dangling a carrot in front of yourself humorous?

I'm not sure mount speed enchantments or items even exist anymore, especially the Carrot; but if they do, yes, they would affect Running Wild. Crusader Aura does.

Birdog asked:

I seem to have noticed a lack of Shifting Perspectives articles on feral (specifically cat spec) druids. Are they lumped in with bear or do you not have a writer for that? If you don't, do you need/want one?

Our editor-in-chief, Dan O'Halloran, will be writing a regular feral cat column starting this week. Allison will continue to write bear and tree articles, and Tyler will also continue in his boomkin writings uninterrupted.

Robert asked:

Is there confirmation on the valor points we have turning into justice points on 4.1 release?

I don't think we actually have confirmation on this yet, but it seems likely, given Blizzard's long-term plans for Cataclysm currency. I imagine we'll hear more about these plans as we get closer to 4.1's release some time in the next several months.

PocketFox asked:

Has there been any word on why Mythical Healing and Mana Potions don't exist as drops from mobs? Is it just to give alchemists a steady source of income?

Again, no official word, but since it hasn't been acknowledged as a bug, we have to assume that it's intended. It seems to fall in line with the new, larger health pools and the mana management game classes are playing now.
