The Queue: Where the Sidewalk Ends


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

There is a place where the sidewalk ends
and before the street begins,
and there the grass grows soft and white,
and there the sun burns crimson bright,
and there the moon-bird rests from his flight
to cool in the peppermint wind.

Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
and the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
we shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow
and watch where the chalk-white arrows go
to the place where the sidewalk ends.

Yes we'll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
and we'll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
for the children, they mark, and the children, they know,
the place where the sidewalk ends.

-- Shel Silverstein, Where the Sidewalk Ends

Polydorr asked:

Is there any expressed limit to JC tokens? Or can I just stack as many as I want to get the jump on epic cuts?

There's no limit I'm aware of, so you're probably safe in just stacking them. While it's a solid bet that the epic cuts will use the JC tokens, Blizzard might come out with something else. We also don't know yet when the epic cuts will be coming; although my money is on 4.1.

Cuts asked:

As heroics are now, is it possible to heal them in PvP gear? Considering iLevel 350 and LOTS of spirit as a hot and skilled holy paladin.

No. Healing is not just spirit and intellect. It's a lot about haste, crit, spell power, talents, and knowing the fights. I'm not going to say it can't be done -- I have no doubt that a skilled group of five players who've played with each other for years could probably pull it off. But ask yourself, are you really that person? Are you really that skillful? I don't mean to burst your bubble or to be too mean here, but you're probably not. I've been running with the same folks for upwards of 5 years now, and I would never subject them to a heroic run with me healing in PvP gear.

I occasionally see people come in a random PUG who try to do this, and we either ask them to leave or, failing that, we kick them. I'll probably get a lot of flack for being a snob here, but I don't think it's appropriate to waste people's time because you don't have the inclination to get a PvE set of gear in normal dungeons first.

MoarHeroism asked:

How many instances do you need to enter to get the "you've entered too many instances recently" message, and how long do you have to wait to enter another?

You can enter up to five instances per account, per hour. If you try to enter a sixth within that hour on any character on your account, you'll get that message.

Irish asked:

When will Wow Insider get a facelift? For a site that has so much to offer, it seems to be stuck in The Twilight Zone...
