Anne Stickney

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) is holding this column hostage and talking Warcraft.

We were somewhere around Hillsbrad Foothills in a basement when the kid showed up. I remember saying, "I'm feeling a little threatened here; maybe I should vanish ..." And suddenly there was a terrible laugh all around us, and the egg that we thought was an egg wasn't really an egg anymore, and the laugh kept right on going, low and sinister. And a voice was screaming: "By Alexstrasza! What are these unholy rogues and brigands?" Then it was quiet again. The kid said he was a black dragon, the only uncorrupted dragon of his kind. "What is he yelling about?" he muttered, staring up the stairs with his eyes half-lidded, a clue to his true serpentine nature. "Never mind," I said.

"Good," he replied. Then he ordered his thug to break my benefactor's legs, just because he could. It turned out OK in the end, though; he gave me a couple of shanks for taking care of his business for him. What can I say? I'm a rogue.

I'm also an expert on obscure stuff, like time lines.

Batleth asked:

Time Travel makes my head hurt as well...however....
Wouldn't going back in time and taking the dragon soul/demon soul from 10,000 years in the past completely alter the Reds?

Hey Batleth, you're totally in luck -- Blizzard just released a short story that explains all that Well of Eternity Dragon Soul what about the time lines? nonsense that everyone's been having minor headaches over. It's called Charge of the Aspects, and it's an excellent read -- one of the better stories that's been done. In the event that this does not clear the matter up, perhaps this will help you:

Thanks, Doctor!

Zayd asked:

This has no doubt been asked/answered alredy but with ZA now only requiring a few bosses to be downed before tackling the last big bad does that mean no more bear runs?

Oh, gosh no. The bears haven't been removed, and if you complete the speed run of all four animal bosses, you can still get your fluffy and fierce teddy basket-head. It's just that you don't have to complete all four bosses to open up the way to the last two now -- you only have to clear two of the animal bosses to move on. So yes, you can still get your bear. However, it may be unlikely that you'll see random PUG groups that would like to do so.

Josh Pringle asked:

Do the Lieutenants that spawn for Strike at the Heart daily in the Firelands have an order? Or do they spawn randomly each day?

They are totally random, which is really annoying when you only need one more guy to get the achievement, and you don't see him for three weeks straight because your luck is terrible.

Puntable asked:

Does anyone have loot lists for the new 5-mans? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Puntable, I'm going to introduce you to a great little site called Wowhead. Get comfortable, because much like TV Tropes, you're apt to be there all day.

Ellyon asked:

What can you put in Void Storage? I wanted to store all of my holiday clothes and tabards, but it would only accept 4 of the 20 items I'd hoped to store. Tabard of the Explorer: stored. Tabard of Ebon Blade: not accepted. I think the error message was "unique items cannot be stored".

Okay Ellyon, here's the deal with void storage: You can put soulbound items in it, and you can put unique-equipped items in it. So trinkets that you can only have one of? That's perfectly OK. Unique items that carry the unique tag cannot be put in void storage, nor can quest items or stackable items like gems and herbs.

The common misconception at this point with void storage is that people are considering it a second bank, and it definitely is not that. What it is is a place where you can store all that old gear you wanted to keep from your various travels across Azeroth. You can't put tabards in there, or holiday items, or those extra gems and herbs you've got sitting in your bank. What void storage is for is a space to store old gear that you may no longer wear but want to keep for sentimental reasons. By putting those items into void storage, you are theoretically opening up more bank space in your main bank for whatever you'd like.

For me, what this means is that I managed to stuff several sets worth of gear that I kept because it was pretty or because I had particularly memories associated with it into void storage. Now I have a bank that I can actually put gems or herbs or holiday items or whatever other little bizarre trinkets I happen to have into, instead of shunting everything that isn't soulbound off to a bank alt. This is, needless to say, something that makes me giggle with hysterical relief when I open my bank, because it has been in a state of full for years now.

If you were expecting to be able to put anything and everything into void storage as a second bank alt, you're mistaken; it's merely for storing old gear. As for tabards and other unique items, well ... Blizzard did say at one point in time or another that it is working on some sort of solution for tabards, like a tab or some other method of doing things. Whether or not we'll see that implemented in the near future is anyone's guess!
