The Queue: I fail at chess


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.

I decided to work on getting my warlock the various tier sets until MoP comes out. It'll be a great thing to do with transmogging in mind, and overall, it's a fun exercise that lets me revisit all the previous content.

That being said, I can't get past the chess event in Karazhan for the life of me. I ragequit my computer after failing at it for an hour.

Le sigh.

I'm going to go put on my "lol l2raid noob" hat and drink a beer. At 10 a.m. in the morning. Blogger life forevah.

Ghola aksed:

I'm hopeful that TOR allowing toons to endlessly upgrade items will make Blizz reevaluate their stance on legendaries. I would love quests every expac to upgrade legendaries you own to the baseline epic iLevel for that xpac - so in cata that would be 359. Its a real downer to have these awesome items and not be able to use them at all, not even with xmog.

This x 1,000.

Unfortunately, I don't think it's going to be done. The ability to always update an item has been around in MMOs for a long time. My first experience with it was in Anarchy Online, although I wouldn't be surprised if Ultima or EQ 1 had the ability.

That being said, it's always possible Blizzard could be swayed by the popularity of such a gear/weapon upgrade system now, given its competition. This is one of the ways having more than one major MMO will benefit everyone.

Now, if TOR would just implement a fracking dungeon finder ...

Svylva asked:

Question: I've been using the mobile auction house a lot lately, but really miss Auctionator. Is there any way to access the AH via a mod like that outside of the game?

Not really, no. All those in-game addons are restricted to in-game only, and the AH can't be accessed in any other way outside of the game sans the mobile AH. You can use sites like Undermine Journal for some data that's been gathered, however.

Zaet asked:

What would be the best next race to become druids and shamans (for both factions)?

Humans (so people can RP hippies) and undead (because a skeleton version of all the druid forms would be amazing).
