The Queue: Wizardly wisdom

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.

In honor of the last Harry Potter movie, I impart to you this wisdom from its greatest wizard.

mbutler532011 asked:

Who is Knog and why is his bow so bad?

Knog is "Gonk" backwards, and Gonk is a hunter well known on sites like Something Awful and Elitist Jerks. He really hates druids. Other SA folks also had their names emblazoned on terrible gear this expansion, like forum moderator and priest player Robble, with his wobbly staff.

Reanne asked:

what if Leyara didn't only injure Hammul but she also did something to him that made him become a Druid of the Flame?

Becoming a Druid of the Flame is something you choose. In other words, you're not on the right track, baby; you weren't born this way.

Scott asked:

Any enlightenment you can provide on the scaling of Guild Reputation?

My level 30 toon is only getting 1-2 rep per daily, while my 85 toons get up to 81 (with the rep tabard). Does the guild rep gain scale over levels, or is it just a max-level thing?

The reason you get so little guild rep at low level is because you get so little experience! I believe the formula for guild rep gain is simply 1% of whatever experience you gain from a quest, or thereabouts.

Ninjivitis asked:

Does anyone else think that Garrosh might have known that his weapon was poisoned? How could he have possibly expected to win against Cairne in a fair fight? Cairne was a seasoned and might warrior; Garrosh is a little boy who sat around doing nothing but pity himself until Wrath and probably had little to no experience fighting anyone.

Nah, Garrosh was legitimately upset that his weapon was poisoned when he found out -- not necessarily because Cairne had died, but because it wasn't a fair fight like he thought it was. There was no deception on Garrosh's part.

Tom asked:

Are there any animation differences between Titan's Grip and Single-Minded Fury?

Nope, they both use the same one-handed attack animations.

mik3st3r asked:

I have been looking through the WoW files on my computer, and found that I still have all the information from previous patches, such as all the WotLK patches. The big ones are as large as 3 GB, such as 3.3. I am wondering if I can delete these files, since we are now in 4.2, or if I have to leave them on my computer. Because of this, my WoW folder has gotten to around 30 GB of space.

It's safe to delete old patch files. The ones you can delete generally have that blue swirly icon.
