The Queue: Panda-free


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 will be your host today.

This Queue is panda-free, just how I hope WoW stays.

Walkmann asked:

Question for the Queue, whatever happened to Southern Barrens (might have been Northern don't remember) becoming like a world pvp zone?

Unless I'm not remembering right, there was never any intention of making either of The Barrens into PVP zones, but rather that the Alliance/Horde conflict in the story would be a centerpiece of the zone.

I think Blizzard has found the formula for would PVP with Wintergrasp as Tol Barad -- concentrated areas of PVP that run on a set schedule. That lets people know the who, where, what, and when of world PVP outbreaks, which has previously always been the most challenging aspect to getting any going.

Vegetto asked:

So for my question is what do you think of a new hero class? What kind of class would you choose as the next one?

It really doesn't matter what I think as much as what Blizzard thinks. I know there's been discussion about adding a healing/DPS hero class, much like the death knight is tanking/DPS hero class. But I've also heard discussion of adding another pure DPS class (which I think isn't a good idea, given the general lack of understanding on hybrid vs. pure DPS output).

We'll find out for sure at BlizzCon 2011.

Coville asked:

Is there still plans to allow transferring our Bind on account items to other realms? Most of my alts on Undermine do not need the gear, but I have some new alts on Icecrown that could.

It's not so much a matter of a plan as much as technical limitations right now. It's in the works at Blizzard, and I'd suspect we'll hear more about it in patch 4.3 or at BlizzCon.

The Dewd asked:

Has Blizzard ever said, or anyone ever worked out, where our trinkets are kept? Are they earrings? Some sort of bracelet? Just "junk" we keep in our pockets?

I was told once by someone at Blizzard that it was the stuff you keep in your pockets or your purse/briefcase -- I mean, man purse. I'm secure enough to say that.
