The Queue: Turkey bacon and egg on a roll


Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Mathew McCurley will be your host today.

That's what I had for breakfast.

Debelak asked:

I have a friend who I am trying to get into the game. I recommended he try the trial account. The problem is, the race he is most excited about is Worgen and he can only play that if he buys all the expansions. He is hesitant to level a race he isn't that excited about up to 20, and then after he decides to buy the game re-roll as a Worgen. I don't want him to spend all that money, though, if it turns out the game isn't for him. Any advice?

Level 20 is not the slog that it used to be or really ever was. Basic gameplay will get you to 20 faster than you would imagine. Tell him that this is his trial and that when and if he enjoys the game for these 20 levels, there is a bunch of other cool starter stuff for him with the Worgen experience. His first 20 levels should be all about becoming familiar with the game world and mechanics, which will allow him a more relaxed Worgen starting experience since he isn't learning everything all at once.

evoxpisces asked:

Did I miss the DK tier 13 unveiling? Or did Blizz not yet show what it will look like?

We have no idea what the death knight set looks like, but from the little icons, it looks like there will be bones involved or something else bleach-white. Ghost bones. Ghost Bone Battlegear.

Elazul Yagami asked:

Do you think they're going to add Chromatus as the real "hidden" end boss of 4.3 like they did with Sinestra?

I had thought that Chromatus would appear in the raid or 5-mans in some form, but I guess I was wrong. That damn dragon was practically built in Twilight of the Aspects to be a raid boss, from his introduction by the Twilight Father to his climactic battle. Maybe his story really did begin and end with the novel.

On the other point, no, there is no secret boss after Deathwing. We've seen the Dungeon Journal for the fights, and Blizzard has stated that there are eight encounters in the Dragon Soul raid. Could it change? Sure. Is it likely to change? Not really. Deathwing is the ultimate end boss of this expansion and that's how it is going to stay, much like how the Lich King was the final boss of Wrath of the Lich King. Nobody counts Halion.

BKryda asked:

Any chance for the queue to stop repeating questions from the previous day or second day (i.e. Will Firelands stop dropping vp?), inserting stupid questions, etc?

If people are asking the questions, then not everyone is getting the answers they are looking for. Maybe they aren't looking for them in the right places, but information is information. You and me both would like people to stop asking the basics, but until they do, sometimes it is nice for a reminder, especially when big new patches are coming and lots of PTR information is changing so rapidly.

Helper asked:

How is Blizzard addressing all of this time traveling? Isn't it horribly weakening the fabric of reality or something?

It's a video game and magic did it. Also, a time dragon.
