The Queue: What a wreck

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

One of the things I love about WoW are all the odd places things seem to find themselves. Like this pirate ship.


Gerjer asked:

Will Blizzard ever expand the number of characters you can have per-server?

This is one of the most requested additions to the game, and while there's always some rumbling that Blizzard will eventually do this, there's been no solid evidence. The 10-character-per-server cap doesn't affect many people, though, so it's probably just not very high on the list. (Even if it makes 500,000 people absolutely insane, that's less than 5% of the total playerbase.)

Hal asked:

What's the current accepted courtesy or protocol when rolling for Chaos Orbs? Just roll Need as long as you have gear you can craft (which you need)? Roll need because everyone else will anyhow?

I've only seen people roll need, and that's what I've done as well (but now watch me get yelled at in the comments). You can also only have an option to roll on them if you can use them, so it's no major harm, really.

Joseph asked:

Was recently playing through Northrend again, and it made me wonder (again) why my level 80 self was such an elitist jerk to my level 72 self in Wyrmrest? Better gear? It's the same thing he's wearing!

I'm pretty sure he has to be a jerk, or else the timeline would change, and then Arthas would win. Future self is doing past self a favor.

A few people have asked:

How can I ask a good question in The Queue?

Make the question about WoW, make it not about whatever we decide to talk about in the intro (Pokemon, Dr. Who, engagements, Rift, etc.), and make sure we haven't answered it in the past week. We probably also don't know or are not going to talk about what the next expansion is. Sorry.
