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.

I want the version of Immigrant Song that they used in the new Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trailer.

Velutina asked:

I haven't seen anything about new 5 man content in 4.2. Will there be any?

Nope. We were originally supposed to get an Abyssal Maw 5-man with the Firelands patch, but given the nebulous state of the Abyssal Maw raid, we may not even get that one at all. It's definitely not coming in 4.2, in any event. Look forward to something in 4.3.

Thiron asked:

Was there any talk about removal of bear mount from ZA speed run rewards in future, like it happened with raid?

No, and I don't anticipate Blizzard will remove it in this expansion, if it ever removes it at all. The only progression or reward mounts Blizzard flat-out made unavailable in recent history (if memory serves) were the Naxxramas drakes, and the devs have stated that they feel like it maybe wasn't the best idea to remove them. Note that you can still get Ulduar drakes, Invincible, Mimiron's Head, etc., even though that content has been trivialized.

Vash-Trigun asked:

Hey I have a quick question. how does one trade heirlooms to alts on the other faction side on the same server? Is it the same as regularly mailing them?


Suh8lim3 asked:

What're the chances that Pandarens will ever become a playable race? I remember hearing a couple years ago that it was because of copyright issues with China, but I'm not 100% sure on that. Pandarens are my favorite lore race and I think a drunken brawler style combat would be awesome.

I think you may be confusing race with class here, but I sincerely hope that pandaren are never playable. They're a joke race. That's not an opinion; it's a fact. The fact that aside from a few Easter eggs, there's almost zero reference to the race in WoW at all shows how uncomfortable Blizzard is with integrating pandaren into the game world, and rightfully so.

Besides, if you sincerely want any more animal-person races in the game, let me provide a sobering counterpoint:

Worgen females.
