The Queue: Attunement was awesome


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, senior Sunwell editor, will be your host today.

On today's podcast, you can hear about the attunement required in the old The Burning Crusade expansion. Some people hate it with a passion, but you know what? I loved it. It was hard, it was an accomplishment, and you were set apart when you could just enter the raids.

Alas, those days are over.

For a reference, look at the attunement chart over on Wowpedia.

Krazy asked:

Did Blizzard ever release a design philosophy change as to why mobs no longer drop the highest level healing and mana potions?

You know, I've never thought of this before, but I've never seen one ...

Blizzard hasn't said anything on the subject, and this would be a great question to ask the devs at BlizzCon. It'd lead to a deeper understanding of itemization and buffs theory with Blizzard.

My guess is that Blizzard wanted to build up the alchemy profession more than anything, but I don't have any source for that (other than their wanting to give professions more love in general).

Tommb asked:

Will my death knight be able to wear the paladin judgement Set vis transmogrification?

No, you must be able to wear the gear before you can transmogrify gear to look like it. Since the judgment set has a paladin class restriction, and your death knight can't equip paladin class-restricted gear, he can't use it via transmogrification.

Fallemwarrior asked:

Any word if mainhand items will Xmorg with one hand items?

We've been told there'll be restrictions that only allow main-hand items to be transmogrified to main-hand items, and one-hand items to other one-hand items.

But all that can change. The best thing to do is to just wait for the PTR, pay attention to what you're seeing on sites like WoW Insider, and then see where things fall.

Mcdreamy asked:

Is anyone else having trouble with an unresponsive script on the WoW Insider pages causing the page to load eternally? The article, comments, and sidebars load, but Firefox never actually finishes the loading.

I've looked into this and I'm not seeing anything, so it might be something on your system or network that's causing the problem. If you're at an office, chances are there's thing blocking part of the internet, and that could be an issue here. If someone has more information, I'll happily forward it along and get it fixed.

That being said ... we're due for a redesign soon, so any issues people are having should be going away. And that's soon as in soon™.
