The Queue: Historical figure

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.

Apparently when someone mentions a pop star in a Queue intro, we get 200 comments in which people pretend they're too cool to know about said pop star or talk about how much they hate said pop star, rather than questions about World of Warcraft. So I'm gonna go ahead and nip that trend right in the bud by giving you the polar opposite of that intro.

Here's a historical figure you probably can't name, or if you can name him, you don't know anything about him besides his name and his title. If you do, good for you. I don't care. Ask me World of Warcraft questions.

Mary asked:

Will the Valentine's Day bosses be dropping Cata-level epics this year, or will it still be the same old Wrath stuff?

Probably not epics, but there are some level 85 blues on Wowhead that look like they'll be dropping off of the Love is in the Air bosses.

Arcsire asked:

So I was questing through Uldum the other day, and something struck me as odd. In on of the first few cutscenes in the zone, you witness a djinn (whose name escapes me) remove the Curse of Flesh from the Neferset. Now, unless I'm missing something, aren't the djinn servants of Al'Akir, and by extension of the Old Gods? Why would the Old Gods want any part of their army to be less vulnerable to their corruption?

Well, they can't be that much less vulnerable -- after all, they got afflicted by the curse in the first place, didn't they? Besides, stone catdudes are much more durable than fleshy catdudes.

Daan.leijen asked:

Does anyone have a clue as to where Ghostcrawler wandered off to? Haven't seen him post in days.

It's been much longer than days. The developers have been largely hands off where the new forums are concerned; GC hasn't really posted all since the changeover. For a while, it seemed like he would be doing regular blogs, like the ones he did about healing and tanking, but after how poorly received his "Wow! Dungeons are Hard!" post was, I'm suspecting it'll be a while before we hear from him again. I'd like to be proven wrong, though.

Chris asked:

With all the class changes coming in Patch 4.0.6, are the talent points getting reset for all classes?

Unlikely. In previous patches, only classes with extensive talent reworks got their talent points reset. It doesn't appear that there are enough fundamental changes for most classes to warrant resets.
