The Queue: Moooo


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, senior editor in charge of facepalming, will be your host today.

I was watching Game of Thrones Sunday night, and all the sudden I saw Hodor. I turned to my fiancée and said, "Hodor! We talked to him on WoW Insider!" She just looked at me and went "What's a Hodor?"

Then I realized I'm marrying someone who hasn't read Game of Thrones.

I am now on a new mission -- a quest, if you will. GoT she shall read; it is so.

Also, Fat Tom doesn't say "coward," he says "craven." I am le disappointed, HBO ...

Irin asked:

Who is Anthony Ray stark? He has a headstone tended by a drawf named Rousch in the very southeastern tip of the Hillsbrad Foothills just beyond Dun Garok. He is no one in lore since on the headstone it simply reads 'Anthony Ray Stark 1961 - 2005'. What is the story behind this little easter egg?

According to Wowpedia, he's a friend of a developer who passed away and has an in-game memorial built for him.

Vehx asked:

Once you've reached your weekly limit for conquest points, can you still trade in valor points to push past the cap?

Nope, the conquest point cap is a hard cap based on the amount you earn, not the amount you've earned and kept.

Sinthar asked:

Isn't WSG the first BG you can get into at low level? Or have the changed that (I dont PVP much - or at all really if i can help it)?

Warsong Gulch is available, as well as Arathi Basin, at level 10. Blizzard added AB a while ago.

Hawk asked:

The only way to get "free" fast flying is What A Long, Strane Trip achievement. What if you already purchased it? Can you get a refund of your money?

That's the only way that I know of. You might also be able to get it via getting an arena-awarded flying mount, but I'm not sure if that gives it to you now or not.

Blizzard won't refund your gold if you already have max flying.

Jishdefish asked:

Heroic Gnomeregan. Would defeating Thermaplug at 85 get us some momentum on that front?

While I have no special knowledge of the subject, I wouldn't at all be surprised at this point to see heroic Gnomer. Makes a lot of sense, given Blizzard's recent penchant for old instances.
