The Queue: A ghost story


Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft.

A new Pomplamoose video was released earlier this week, and I'd be a terribad if I didn't share it in The Queue.

Read on for a true ghost story.

Aeros asked:

Do you think that Blizzard is going to fix 1-60 dungeons? I mean, I want to do the dungeons, but doing a dungeon gives me so much XP that it throws off my leveling by quests, making them green or grey.

That's what dungeons are going to do for you -- provide large boosts in XP and gear. That experience has been toned down a bit, but it's still quite a boost. If you're leveling just to do quests, then don't do dungeons. But if you're just leveling for leveling's sake, then don't worry about it too much. You can always go back and complete the dungeons.

The reason behind this is worth noting, too. Blizzard didn't want to make dungeon running a necessary part of the leveling experience, as it used to be (practically, at least).

Dr. Knox asked:

Could you tell me something awesome that I otherwise wouldn't have known about?

I have three potentially awesome things to share with you, Dr. Knox:

  1. Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of the number 12 + 1 (don't type it or else you'll die).
  2. Fried spider is a popular dish in Cambodia.
  3. When I was around the age of 15, I woke up at 6 a.m., which was a little early for me. I looked at my open door and saw my Grandpa Bo standing there. I looked at him oddly and said "Hello?" He then turned and walked away. I got up a minute later to find that he wasn't there, but my parents were awake upstairs. I figured that he was just up there talking to them. Thinking nothing of it really, I went and took a shower and got ready for school. After I had dressed, my mom came down and told me my Grandfather had passed away earlier that morning at a hospital many, many miles away. It's possible I overhead some conversation about it while I was waking up, or something else is possible. Either way, good luck getting to sleep tonight when you look at your bedroom door.

North asked:

I was able to change my username and avatar picture on the main Joystiq site a while ago, but since then, the site has gone through a redesign and I can't find the option to change my username. Does anyone know how to accomplish this?

You can't change your username.

I can say that we're going to be getting some redesign done on our site soon, if everything goes as planned. At that point, we're going to see some update design (although possibly not functionality) come to our comment system. I'd be surprised if there'd be a way for you to change your username. Everything else should be much easier, though.

Someone will ask:

I want more WoW questions in The Queue!

We love answering WoW questions, but we need ones that we don't answer ever day or more than just a ton of "we don't know." So ask away, and we shall answer!
