The Queue: I heart whale sharks

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.

Look at that big, happy galoot. Why would you ever even consider killing him, especially when he drops no loot?

Sane asked:

Has there been any information on how T11 pieces will be purchased in 4.2? Currently the helm and shoulder require raid tokens to purchase. When 4.2 comes out, do you think Blizzard will convert them to be purchasable by JP or do you think the nerf to normal mode will keep enough people running T11 dungeons?

As of the current patch 4.2 PTR build, the helm and shoulders still require tokens to purchase. Blizzard hasn't said either way whether they'll stay this way, though it's worth noting that the other three pieces have already had their costs adjusted to their intended 4.2 costs.

As for people continuing to run normal tier 11 content, yeah, I think they will. With only seven bosses in this tier, I'm not sure they'll have much choice!

Task asked:

With Blizzcon coming in a few months and the subsequent pet that comes when you are there either in person or via direct tv livestream, is it possible that I could lose last years digital code for Deathy if I gotten this years in game one?

I haven't activated the my Deathy code as of yet but it's still in my email inbox.

I think it's safe to say that this year's pet won't be Deathy, of course, so your new livestream code shouldn't replace your old one or anything -- though I would probably redeem it soon, if I were you!

Jack Spicer asked:

I heard that the new faction, Avengers of Hyjal, which is being added in 4.2 will only be associated with the new raid and not the new daily quest hub. So my question is this, why bother with the new daily quest hub?

While there's not a reputation attached to it, there is personal advancement in the form of growing your Sentinel Tree and choosing which vendors and content you want to access first. There's plenty of content (and rewards) available, like new gear, pets, and mounts.

James asked:

I'm a, for lack of better words, part-time raider that has had the glorious benefit of finding Zin'Rokh in a massive pile of dirt. However, whenever I do anything -like a random heroic- with the core raidiers in my guild, they treat me like I didn't really "earn" my epic weapon; that Zin'Rokh is a over-rated weapon and that real raiders use weapons they pry from the decrepit maw of Magmaw or the hands of Nefarian or Cho'gall. One person in particular keeps on touting Shalug'doom in my face like he is such a better raider than me; and he's a main-spec Holy Pally. It really is kind of demoralizing to receive treatment like that from someone who himself didn't even "earn" that weapon...even when it's awful for Ret Paladins anyways.

Your guildmates are stupid.
