The Queue: Is there golf in Azeroth?


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 (@adamholisky), senior editor at WoW Insider, will be your host today.

I am terrible at golf. I have a good driving ability, but my short and mid game is laughable. Nonetheless, I still find time pretty regularly to get out to the driving range and at least pretend I'll one day get better.

This got me thinking the other day, though ... Azeroth could use a golf minigame. Somewhere out in Nagrand, for instance, or maybe Arathi Highlands (which is a zone that needs some serious love, in my opinion). All the players could "hit" a ball with a different club (spell); the ball goes flying and lands somewhere near the hole. The closer it is to the hole, the more tokens you get. Get enough tokens, and get some cool prizes.

Chris asked:

Has it been mentioned yet if the new DMF will now have easier ways to level rep with the DMF?

Yes, each daily right now on the PTR is giving out 250 reputation per turn-in. My guess is that it'll stay like that on the live realms.

Ilcjay2003 asked:

Does anyone else think that the "big boss" of MoP will be revealed later in the expansion as an Old God?

I think it's a definite possibility. Remember though that MoP will have a "big boss" but not a "big bad." I distinguish the two in that the big bad is the driving force behind the expansion -- Arthas was our goal in Wrath, Deathwing our goal in Cataclysm. In The Burning Crusade it was Illidan, although the story was a bit diluted at the end, given the introduction of Sunwell, and what I think was the harder boss in Mount Hyjal's Archimonde. In MoP, there is no creature we're all fighting toward for the whole expansion; we're fighting against each other, ourselves.

Now will the big boss be an Old God? I could see us fighting an Old God in patch 5.3, with the lore moving the story forward for the next expansion.

Razorwing asked:

What is the current Ilvl to use raid finder on the ptr, and do those who have used this feature believe it will be shifted. I am gearing an alt war tank (current raid comp is two dodge tanks). I am applying to grad school and don't have time to gear up more if there is no need.

You need to have a gear level of 365 of greater to queue for the Dragon Soul raid using the raid finder on the PTR. As was mentioned in the comments, this is going to be impossible for a non-raiding toon to hit right now, but with the next 5-man heroics and new justice point gear, it'll be much easier.

Bryan asked:

I am looking for a chronological order for the comics and books. Most of my findings have been inconclusive. Please help?!

Right over on our sidebar! Anne Stickney wrote a great piece for us on the chronology of all the WoW stories.
