The Queue: Some notes ...


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.

Everyone should go read Matt Rossi's Know Your Lore: Brotherhood of the Horse. Somehow I managed to schedule it at 6 a.m. yesterday instead of 6 p.m. I blame my cat. He was annoying me during my morning routines.

In other news, did you know that Mat McCurley and Fox Van Allen will be hosting our live meetup at BlizzCon? Mike Sacco and Anne Stickney will be hosting our live podcast that night, as well. Should be tons of fun! We'll be announcing the meetup details soon, so stay tuned.

JTrack3d asked:

Does Blizzard count it against you for submitting tickets against other players violating ToS?

If you're spamming tickets, then yes, it counts against you. Blizzard does keep track of such things, and there's a lot of personal judgment on the part of the GM handling the ticket. They'll give you warnings, telling you to stop sending in unnecessary tickets, etc. But if you're not spamming, you're fine.

In my time playing WoW, I've had to fill out several dozen tickets against other players by now. Back in the day when wall walking was a big thing, I'd report every damn wall walker in WSG.

Ph33nz asked:

What is the staff's experience with progression? Is anyone in a truly "hardcore" progression guild?

We have a wide array of staff members, from the progression raider to the super-casual. There are staff members here who are deep into heroic mode progression and others who are in between.

One of the big things I like about working here is that I get to interact with such variety of players. Some former staff members have been in top 10 (world) guilds. For myself, I've been in a top 150 (US) guild and have done the casual thing, too. Right now, I'm somewhere in between. My jobs (being an editor here and at another site) take up way more than eight hours a day, and my non-work/WoW life is full of fun and excitement as well.

I Don't Always Guy asked:

For xmorging will i be able to wear priest t1 on a mage becuase i will have the item and dont have token issues?

No, you'll need to be able to wear the item -- and a mage can't wear priest tier gear.

Alzeer asked:

with blizzard increasing the classes available for each race do think we will ever see undead druid?

I'd actually be surprised if we saw any more race and class combinations. Blizzard folks have said a few times now that the races and classes have reached a near-universal point and that they don't want to go any further. So no, I don't think you'll see any Undead druids.
