The Queue: Sealab 2021 Insider


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 webmaster of a new mobile gaming website, will be your host today.

I'm not exactly sure who asked that we start Sealab 2021 Insider in Tuesday's Queue. But here we are. Let's go.

Siaperas asked:

What is your most annoying experience with a player randomly going afk during an encounter, and what was that player's excuse?

There was a tank who enjoyed drugs, and he was our tank assigned to Illidan. He ended up AFKing through the last 30% of the fight in order to go and get enlightened (this was possible because our healers were amazing). I found out he AFKed after we had killled him and offered him the Bulwark of Azinoth. Instead of giving it to him, we DEed it in front of him and gkicked his butt (all of us other tanks had it). His rant was amazing; I wish I had recorded it. I got an email from him 10 hours or so after he was kicked; he told me that he was going to ... sully my shoes ... at BlizzCon.

He remains on my ignore list on one of my toons to this very day. I never did see him IRL.

loop_not_defined asked:

Will we be seeing a guide to "Things you cannot transmogrify" now that we can test it?

It's going to be part of our overall coverage to list or explain things like that as we see them. We don't have such an exact list right now, however.

Wybenga42 asked:

With 4.3 now on PTR, how long do you think it will take for us non-PTR players to start seeing information on the armor sets offered by the Darkmoon Faire for transmogrification?

Blizzard has said it's still got work to do on the Darkmoon Faire, and I suspect that we'll be seeing more of that in the next few weeks. I doubt 4.3 will be on the PTR for more than two months, so expect such things relatively soon.

Arkonn asked:

Any chance of Blizz ever allowing us to use reputation standards in Firelands? MOAR REP NAO!

I don't see Blizzard changing any of the rep gain mechanics in this expansion. Yes, they can be tedious, but they're a helluva lot better mechanics overall than they were in classic or The Burning Crusade. Complain not -- the "old days" were worse.

Foster asked:

How do I join the 4.3 ptr? I had 4.2 downloaded but when I open it I cant select a realm to go onto. Do I need to un install then re install?

Yes, it does sound like you'll need to uninstall and then reinstall the PTR client. Download the latest PTR client from your account page.
