The Queue: Hogwarts this ain't

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.

Look, I'm gonna be totally honest with you -- I've never watched The Big Bang Theory. Netflix keeps telling me "Say, you'll probably like this!" but Netflix also told me I'd enjoy High Lonesome: The Story of Bluegrass Music, so I try not to take anything it says too seriously. Instead, I present you with Mr. Wizard's World, a show I spent entirely too many afternoons after school happily watching while waiting for You Can't Do That On Television and Dangermouse to come on.

Hey, why don't we talk some Warcraft?

Tsukuri asked:

Regarding last question today (not sure if this has been said): But I thought that the park district of SW was destroyed thanks to our goblin designed giant cannon over in Azshara. Is this just a rumor i thought was true or was the answer correct?

Nope! There's actually a conversation between soldiers while you're waiting to go to Vash'jir in which they discuss Deathwing's attack on the park. According to the soldiers, Deathwing flew in, torched the park, and then took off. Now as to why Deathwing torched the Park ... well, it had a moonwell sitting smack in the middle of it, which was likely a lovely reminder to Deathwing of that pesky night elf Malfurion. Malfurion was the person who stole the Dragon Soul from Deathwing originally, and the night elves managed to keep it and hide it away after the War of the Ancients. So Deathwing has a reason to be really irked at anything that reminds him of the creatures that stole his most prized possession away.

Q4tQ: Wheres my Top Hat Pattern?!

In Stromgarde. With Turalyon, Alleria, and the shattered remains of Frostmourne.

Seriously though, someone in Wowhead's comments for the item is stating that it drops off of rare elites in Uldum, Hyjal, Twilight Highlands, Vashj'ir and Deepholm. I have yet to see it on my server, and goodness knows whether the person who made the comment was telling the truth or not. So ... we don't really know, exactly. Sorry!

josh asked:

question for the queue

trying to get the chest or shoulders to match my hands and feet.
i have Pillagers Gauntlets and Leggings of Divine Retribution
where can i get the chest/shoulders if at all?

Oh hey, I know the answer to this one because there's a warrior in my guild who is wearing it! Best match for those pieces is the Vengeful Gladiator's Plate set -- it's the same black and blue plate. The good news is, you can pick that up from Kezzik the Striker at Area 52 in Netherstorm for honor points. The bad news is, you need to be a warrior to get it. I hope you're a warrior!

ganrokh81 asked:

So, who created the Twilight Realm that some of the Twilight Dragons always pull us into? Has it always existed? I've read the novels, but the only one I think that has mentioned it may have been Night of the Dragon.

That's a really good question. Here's the deal with the Twilight Dragonflight -- they were created by fusing the eggs from plain old ordinary dragons with the energies of the Netherwing Dragonflight we see out in Outland. The Netherwing were created when a batch of Deathwing's eggs were zapped by Twisting Nether energies, and it gave them that odd sort of translucency that the adults all have. They're literally composed of Twisting Nether energy. That trait was passed on to the Twilight Dragonflight. They created the Twilight realm, and they control it.

Puntable asked:

If I win some loot in the LFR, and then give it to my friend (who also rolled on the loot but didn't win), is this an exploit?

I'm pretty sure you can't do that. A recent set of hotfixes stated that players should be unable to trade loot they got from Raid Finder encounters to players who are loot-locked to that boss. Since your friend would be loot-locked at that point, you shouldn't be able to trade to him at all.

Plus ... well, if he didn't win the roll, then he doesn't get the gear. Rolling for a friend so that he essentially gets two rolls on gear isn't exactly what we'd call fair or nice.

durandal asked:

Here's another question:

Who's the father of Aggras's baby? Is it really Thrall?

Honey, when Aggra said "You've been at this for days, Go'el" in the patch 4.2 trailer, she may or may not have been talking about chatting with the elements, if you catch my drift. Seriously, the baby is Thrall's, they're both delighted, and I'm sure we'll see the adventures of the little tyke some day down the road. Far, far down the road.
