The Queue: Where a kid can be a kid

Alex Ziebart

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

In today's edition of The Queue we discuss Titan, Bolvar as the Lich King, how mages are cheaters, and more.

Sturmovic asked:

Will WoW Insider cover Titan as well as WoW when it comes out?

It's way too early to think about how we'll be covering Titan in the network. It's at least a couple of years until we see that game on the market, if not many more. However, we probably won't be covering Titan here on WoW Insider. Could it happen? Sure -- but it's much more likely Massively or Joystiq Prime will be covering it.

Really though, absolutely anything could happen in a few years. Maybe we'll get bought out by Chuck E. Cheese in 2013 and we'll be covering the latest ball pit technology by the time Titan is released.

Mal asked:

Is WoW Rookie ever going to cover macros and keybinds?

It might! When you have ideas like this of things you'd like us to cover, I strongly recommend using our Contact Us link in the upper right of the site. We really do read every email that we receive, so it's an excellent way to suggest topics like that.

Do note, however, that reading an email does not necessarily mean we will do whatever is asked of us. If a reader submits a pet petition and wants us to give it coverage, that probably won't happen, but things like, "Can you cover macros in WoW Rookie/Arcane Brilliance/Whatever" are things we'll certainly make notes of for later on.

In the meantime, maybe using some of our recent class columns as a basic resource would be useful to you. For new players, we have an article on basic keyboard shortcuts. We recently ran a two-part series on PvP keybindings, and our retribution and enhancement columns both covered macros very recently, and we've covered class-specific macros in the past.

Will asked:

What is Bolvar Fordragon doing up in Northrend now that he is the Lich King? The Lich King as a character is really interesting to me and I don't want its story-line being cut off completely.

Bolvar Fordragon is keeping the Scourge in check. Keeping such a massive number of thralls under your control almost certainly takes a lot of mental fortitude, not to mention he's warring with whatever pieces of the previous Lich King that still exist within the crown Tirion placed upon his head. He has his work cut out for him. Considering the Scourge is being successfully pushed out of the Plaguelands, it seems Bolvar is doing a rather good job. He's directly battling against that which should be his nature as the Lich King. Time will tell whether he's successful or not.

fillechaude asked:

Why is it that mana gems don't disappear after logging out for 15 minutes? What makes them different from other conjured items?

Mages cheat, but they aren't good enough at cheating to preserve their cake.

Smurrf asked:

Isn't it about time for another Two Bosses Enter series?

We restarted it just last week. Ozruk vs. Asaad was the very first matchup of the season. The second matchup of the season was published earlier today.
