The Queue: So let's talk for a minute, East Coast ...


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.

Between the earthquake and the coming hurricane, I feel pretty bad for you, East Coast. I'm going to be sitting here in the midwest with some air conditioning and this new beauty over the weekend, watching you all on CNN and MSNBC.

Stay safe!

And bonus points if someone holds up a "Ghostcrawler promised me a hurricane" sign on a newscast (double bonus points if it makes it on Colbert or Stewart).

Knob asked:

If a feral druid transmogs a future staff into the model of Frandral's Flamescythe, will his cat form be a firecat or a normal one?

Normal. Mogging doesn't have anything to do with the game effects of the items, only the visual.

Tyler asked:

True or False: we'll be able to transmog PVP gear. I don't recall seeing that question answered....

True. Blizzard has said before that PVP will be moggable.

Devin asked:

Will the new raid finder include old raids like BT/MC/Ulduar despite being 85? I would hate to think that I can't run old content whenever I want to work on my "mogging" set.

Blizzard has said that the Raid Finder will function almost exactly like the random Dungeon Finder, and the Dungeon Finder doesn't let you queue for old instances -- I'd assume the same would be true for the Raid Finder, that older raids would not be queuable.

That being said, who knows? ... Blizzard could pretty easily change its mind here. It sure would be a great feature.

Neuro asked:

Any plans by WoW Insider to do a type of "Retro Raider" series of articles? I'm wondering if we couldn't get a series of articles describing how to go into the old instances and run them as a lvl 85.

Anne is going to be running a column on the different gear and tier sets available. That'll be starting today (theoretically). In there, Anne will cover some different retro raids, etc. A column dedicated to it isn't a bad idea, though; I'll see what we have the resources to do.

Vonster asked:

For Transmogrification, will there be ANY way to get the set the DK comes out of their starting zone with? Mine is long gone from my bank :(

Blizzard has said a few times now that it's looking into a way to resolve this. The devs know lots of people want the original DK set.
