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.

Looking back at old loading screens, it seems like it's been ... half a decade or more since WoW started, you know?

d'Avitant asked:

I could have sworn that Blizzard was supposed to be making male and female models of the various demons available with this patch (4.2). Was I imagining this, or am I just failing at finding it? Thanks!

This is something Blizzard is working on but not something that was scheduled for 4.2. Personally, I'm of the opinion that the various genders of demons were going to be added to the upcoming Burning Crusade sequel expansion anyway, since we'll be visiting their home planets, and Blizzard took the opportunity to say, "Look how much we listen to you!" (Note: There may not be an upcoming Burning Crusade sequel expansion. I just hope there is.)

Exogenesis asked:

I was reading through my old game manual for classic WoW (the huge ones printed by an outside company), and was surprised to read that in times of heavy capacity, zeppelin passengers could sometimes find themselves dumped off it into the ocean.

I'm not sure why that would end up in the manual, but yes, that was a bug that happened from time to time. Players would find themselves unceremoniously dropped into the ocean.

Andresoaress_lima asked:

I would like to know if the WotLK heroics have a great rate of players doing them or not, because I don't plan to buy Cataclysm by now and want to do some heroic dungeons :)

The number of people running Wrath heroics is going to be very, very small nowadays. Normal Wrath dungeon queues would be a little better due to alts pushing their way through the content, but heroics are end-expansion content, and Wrath is over.

Luotian asked:

WHY does Blizzard keep on using vehicle quests? My sister loves them but I can't stand them and am terrible at them.

In small doses, they break up the tedium of kill this, collect that quests pretty well, and there aren't many in Cataclysm compared to Wrath.

Dennis asked:

What happened to the dwarves at Dun Garok? There's no sign of the forsakens green slime attack, just some angry spirits.

Ostensibly, five years of low-level Forsaken questing took its toll on the dwarves.
