The Queue: Go eat a pizza pie

Alex Ziebart

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

Today is another one of those days where I have no clever intro to put here. I guess I didn't talk about stupid things from the '90s on Twitter enough last night. I need to rectify that.

Let's see, how about ... Samurai Pizza Cats? Yeah. That'll do.

Stargazer asked:

There's a rumor going around the LFR groups that people with lower quality gear get "favored" in the roll system so they get mgeared faster. Can you confirm or deny this? Also, does Blizzard have to tell us about every single change they make in the game? What if they want to tweak something like a drop rate. Thanks.

I can't confirm or deny it with 100% certainty, but it sounds like a bunch of crap. As cutaia said yesterday: "In reality, you tend to remember the more annoying or inconvenient circumstances in life, as opposed to the times when things work the way they theoretically ought. When the guy pulling 5k DPS wins gear from each boss, it stands out more and is more likely to get shared as a story than the time 16 people, each performing average to well, each won something."

Malsi asked:

Clearly, the correct answer is Rita Repulsa!

Arrohon asked:

General Video Game question: What game (or series) do you believe has the best music?

If we're talking music made for the game, the Mass Effect series is pretty high up there for me. I'm a sucker for slightly off-kilter sci-fi tracks. If we're talking best use of music, Saints Row 3 is great at using its licensed soundtrack at just the right moments to make you feel like a big damn hero.

willmsgame asked:

Question? Why change up the UI in wow? I started raiding around the time that the argent crusade raid started, but I never felt like I needed a whole new UI besides what blizzard gave me. I mostly use macros for all my rotation abilities, I don't normally have to click on anything, and when I do, the two additional bars above my main action bar was all the room I need. Whats so great about New UI's?

It's all about customization and tailoring things to your particular needs. I never used a full UI package, either. I found Blizzard's UI to be pretty good for the vast majority of tasks, and I used addons for ... adding on to the base package. That was all I needed or wanted.

Other people don't like the base UI at all. And that's fine. They can change it if they want to do that. They might want things in different places, or make specific elements more prominent while moving others out of the way and so on. It's like your bedroom is probably not identical to your buddy's bedroom. The same basic things are in that room, but they're in different places and painted different colors because that's how you like it. If you're going to spend countless hours in it and using it, you might as well be comfortable with it.

techno-warrior6 asked:

since Kalegos is the aspect of magic why does he don't have mana? This was bugging me through out the whole Madness of Deathwing fight

Because he don't ain't no needing it does.
