The Queue: I don't know


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 editor at WoW Insider and co-founder of a new mobile gaming site, will be your host today.

This first question is a great one; I love finds like these. They're done through really legitimate sites like Wowhead and MMO-Champion. It's stuff like this that makes you scratch your head and wonder what the designers were really thinking.

Or rather, what they were drinking.

I hear it's coffee and gin.

Jamie asked:

Was was this all about?

Wow. I have absolutely no idea. I'm throwing this out there in hopes that someone else does. I've pinged a couple people I know about; we'll see if they get back to me in time for publication.

Peebers asked:

How much is there to do around town if I'm in town for BlizzCon?

There's Disney right next door and just a ton of other stuff to do and see. A lot of our staff stay out there for a week.

And of course, there's our reader meetup ... oh, wait. I'm not supposed to talk about that yet ... Um ... Ignore this, Dan! /wink /nod /innocent whistle

(We'll have a big announcement very soon.)

Zenotho asked:

Did the 4.1 nerf to the gold amount looted from soloable raid bosses include a nerf to Flame Leviathan's engineering "skinning" drops? Can Flame Levi still be "skinned" by engineers to obtain Mekgineer's Chopper/Mechanohog loot such as the Elementium-Plated Exhaust Pipe and the Goblin Machined Piston? I haven't seen any drop from his skin in weeks and they are no longer on his skinning loot list on Wowhead.

I actually just did this and there was no engineering skin/loot/whatever you want to call it. It must have been hotfixed out (or in a patch note that I'm not remembering).

Udderpowered asked:

Are death knights now a finite resource as the LK is dead?

In terms of game mechanics, no.

In terms of lore, death knights are created during the time the Lich King is still alive; remember that the story (and time, for the most part) progresses as you move through the expansions. So in loreland, the Lich King is still kickin' until the death knights hit Dalaran, when they learn he's dead.

Logan Holisky asked:

What do you think Blizzard will do about some of the unfinished plot lines?

No MMO or author is ever perfect with wrapping up unfinished plot lines/holes. I'm sure that Blizzard will leave enough dangling. But for the most part, I'd suspect that the major Cataclysm lines will be tied up nice and neat.

Also ... go to bed. I know you're almost 21 and I'm yelling at you, but I'm telling Mom if you don't go to bed and get off Twitter.

Xvkarbear asked:

Is there a item like the Dalaran rings or guild shrouds that allows port to Shattrath?

Nope. The best you can hope for is the neck at the end of the Black Temple quests that'll transport you outside the entrance to the Black Temple.
