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.

Same as yesterday, I have no idea who did this picture, but it's great.

Hhardin1130 asked:

I need an awesome name for a dwarf warrior. It's my first dwarf and my first warrior, and I want a name that is suitably awesome.

The perfect dwarf name only requires that you combine two of the following:
  • A type of metal or stone (Iron, Ore, Steel)
  • A basic melee weapon (Axe, Mace, Hammer)
  • A piece of blacksmithing equipment (Forge, Anvil)
  • A brewed alcoholic beverage (Stout, Ale, Lager)
  • Beard
It's easy. You could be Aleforge, or Steelbeard, or Beardhammer, or Beardbeard. If it's good enough for Blizzard, it's good enough for you. Note that if your character is Dark Iron, you can just add "Grim" or something to it. If you're Wildhammer, just steal Craig Ferguson's Rolodex and use one of his friend's last names.

Moar Heroisms asked:

How many guildies are required to get guild achievement credit for vanilla and BC raids?

Ten for 40-man raids, eight for 25-man raids.

Letg06 asked:

Has Blizzard given us any reason, either lorewise or logical, as to why rogues move faster when they're in stealth than they and everyone else does when they're running?

It's just a gameplay mechanic, not a lore thing, but you can look at it from a few different angles if you want an explanation for it. The first is that in real life, stealth isn't necessarily about moving slowly; it's about moving unnoticed. This may mean moving pretty fast! Looking from another angle, rogues do employ "minor mysticism" (direct quote from the class description) in their abilities, so it's not out of the question for them to be using shadow magic to move faster than normal.

Mem0ryburn asked:

This is off-topic but what's the best site for WoW TCG information? I don't expect to find a site as good as this one dedicated to the game but is there anywhere out there with a good community and/or frequent and helpful articles?


The dudes at Daily Metagame update their site frequently and the articles are great -- beginner stuff as well as tournament-level. There are also lots of dev blogs and community articles on the official WoW TCG website.
