The Queue: Winter is coming


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) will be your host today.

It's amazing how the change of one little word can make the world of difference.

For instance, instead of talking about Winter Veil, I can now talk about Game of Thrones season 2.

What do we say to the god of death? Not today.

Storygiver asked:

Any word on an elusive 11th character screen spot so I can finish the 10th now? Or should I just delete it?

The last we've heard from Blizzard is that it's thinking about removing the 10-character-per-server limit and just keeping the 50-character-per-account limit. That'll more than free things up.

Atanae asked:

With the introduction of another class, will Blizzard introduce another token group for tier gear?

That's going to be a very big balancing act on the shoulders of the systems team. My guess is no, we'll probably see two tokens of four classes each and one token of three classes. That being said, it's something Blizzard can change pretty fast, so we'll just have to wait and see.

Derraid asked:

Why doesn't blizzard lower the prices of the old jp-gear? currently there is no reason to buy it.

Because Blizzard wants you to buy the current gear, which is going to help you a heck of a lot more than all the lower ilevel JP gear you could get.

And if you're talking about super-old, past-expansion JP gear, then it's really not an issue, because JP points are so easy to farm anyway.

Skyrie asked:

I've heard that if you kill a boss on LFR and don't roll on anything (pass on everything) that you're still eligible for loot next time around. Any truth to this?

Absolutely false. You get once chance at loot per boss per week. If you pass on that loot or don't get anything you can use, them's the breaks. If you find some way to get around this, don't do it -- because that's cheating, and that's bad.

Marlthehammer asked:

So do the staff at WoW Insider work there full time? As in, is this your main gig that you do for a living or something you do on the side for fun?

For the senior staff, it's our main gig. For everyone else, it's everything in between their main gig to their part-time gig.

Bapo asked:

Are there any plans of doing the Fall of Deathwing fights explained in 5sec for raid finder?

Why, yes
