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.

If you've ever had the hankering to cross-stitch the crew of Serenity, well, now you can.

Erik Inow asked:

I have a buddy who has a sort of raid group that I would like to join. Thing is they are on a different server and they are horde. Would I be able to get my human pally to switch servers and faction in one swap or is it that I have to switch server then do a faction change. I ask because that can be a lot of money and I need to know to save up!

They're separate processes, and there's no discount for doing them together. You'd need to server transfer, then faction change, for a total of $55 USD. Note that you get a free name change and re-customization for changing your faction.

Chris asked:

I recently just finished questing through WPL and there was one scence that really made me think of a possibilty for future content. It was the scene where Sylvanas tells Kolthira that she is sending him beneath Undercity, to which he yells a No to. However I wondered if there are any clues to what may be under there, or better yet if you think we will ever get to see it for ourselves.

There are a ton of plot hooks in Cataclysm, but we really have no inkling as to whether any particular one will be fully explored. There are indications that there's an advancement in the worgen vs. Forsaken storyline, so it's possible that Koltira's fate will be explored as well. And besides, there's still a whole lot of Cataclysm left.

Shrikesnest asked:

So I'm gearing my warrior up, slowly but steadily. The only real problem is the ranged slot (of course). The best non-raid ranged weapon with strength on it seems to be an ilvl 318 green quest drop. Do I take a higher ilvl weapon with agility on it? I've heard Cataclysm is all about the primary stats now and less about the secondary ones, so it seems like gaining a little crit and/or haste wouldn't make up for the strength loss, plus I can't in good conscience roll against a hunter on a good ranged weapon with agility on it.

It is indeed best to go for a weapon with strength on it, even at a lower item level, compared to one with agility on it. There's a severe dearth of strength guns available in Cataclysm -- Thundercall and Crossfire Carbine are pretty much the only ones -- but it looks like we'll be getting more in Zul'Aman and Zul'Gurub, so if you don't mind waiting a bit, you can always grab one there.

Rylka asked:

Why is it that ALL eye patches in the game are Leather? That means that all the cloth classes are forever bared from dressing up with cool eye patches. :(

Because leather is the objectively best armor class and clothies are rightfully restricted from wearing the Cool Kid Clothes? None of us bestarmortypers have to iron our armor. You don't deserve an eyepatch if you do.
