The Queue: Patchstache

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.

I was just going through my old screenshots and found this gem, from April 14, 2009. Some may remember this day as the launch day for patch 3.1, Secrets of Ulduar. But for me, it will live in infamy as Patchstache Day.

Twowolves asked:

Has it been stated the transmog will only work on green+ gear? There are some nice gray sets I wouldn't mind using.

The gear must have stats on it besides armor, and only uncommon (green) or higher rarity items have stats on them. Bonus armor, in green text, counts as a stat.

mrespman asked:

Will we be able to 'mog' the appearance of tabards?

There's been no word about it, but honestly, it's pretty unlikely. Wearing a tabard you don't like for rep gain is, at best, a minor inconvenience.

Erevan asked:

In previous expansions, an NPC comes in and "saves the day" during the last boss fight of the big end-of-expansion raid. Maiev Shadowsong came in to help with Illidan, and Tirion Fordring saved our butts during the Lich King fight. Who do you think is going to be our "save the day" NPC for the Deathwing fight?

No concrete information, but Alexstrasza and probably the other aspects, along with Thrall, will undoubtedly kill-steal us and hog the glory. That's the way the cookie crumbles.

J G asked:

I recently started a break from WoW, but for when i am back i am planning to switch servers and start anew. The one thing i play WoW for is raiding, and any advice on which server to transfer to for this is welcome. I may start pugging at first before committing to a guild, but ultimately it is a guild that i will look for. Suggestions, and the reasoning behind them are very much appreciated! :)

You can use the realm forums on the official WoW site to look for guilds on a specific server, or you can visit your intended server and use the Guild Finder feature in game to find a guild that matches the environment and schedule you prefer.

Adam asked:

Correct me if I'm wrong, didn't Metzen say at BlizzCon 2010 that Thrall would take over the mantle "Aspect of Earth" after we kill Deathwing? I doubt even the mighty Thrall could juggle two jobs at once.

You'll want to read the Thrall book for more details, but no, Thrall will not be the Aspect of Earth.
