The Queue: I'm Ronald D. Moore


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.

This is pretty much the best thing ever.

BSG ending? This is better.

M.A.S.H. ending? This is better.

The Best of Both Worlds? This is better.

Montoya asked:

Why don't we use the warglaives that the NEs have decoratively everywhere? (like Illidan's, but smaller and less flashy)

Blizzard has said in the past (a long time ago) that it wants to keep warglaives unique for players. I think it's entirely possible and indeed hope that we get some more glaives one day. They're a really awesome model, and even if they're a ultra-hard epic to get or another legendary, I'm sure the playerbase would welcome them.

Orkchoper asked:

Is the entire WoW Insider staff tacking March 6th off?

I have never actually finished Mass Effect 1 or 2, so I'll be working. As for everyone else, I believe they'll be sick.


Edges asked:

We have heard that Blizzard is trying for account bound achievements in MoP, do you think that will include titles?

It's really too early to say, but I could see it going either way.

My guess is that we'll see the philosophical ramblings from Ghostcrawler or Zarhym on this at some point. On one hand, account-bound titles make sense, especially because there are some more difficult ones that you're not likely to acquire again, and those would give your alt a bit of a status symbol and a way to let other players know you've completed the content. On the other hand, they are sort of special and tied to specific accomplishments that the hard work players put into the character has allowed them to gain.

It could go either way, really, and we'll just have to wait and see what the details are.

GT asked:

Ever notice the north half of the Eastern Kingdoms map looks like a puppy face? Whazzup with that?

I don't see it, really. To me, it looks like that thing living under my bed. His name is Fred.

Aspect asked:

Why do some people think it's ok to act so rotten in the LFR? I rarely see such awful behaviour in 5 mans.

I think it has a lot to do with the investment people are putting into their characters, along with the attitude and ego of the players involved. Raiding is still seen as a sacred thing to some -- a highly privileged activity that you can only do if you're good. People need to get over this mindset and start thinking of LFR as an entry-level activity for everyone.

Granted, some players in LFR are terrible. I've seen some crazy stuff. But the boss still died and the group still moved on. Those players who don't understand the mechanics of their class or the moderate to advanced elements of the game are exactly where they should be -- in LFR and not in a full-time raid.

If people played as badly in my guild's raid as I see in the Raid Finder, I would be nerd raging about wasting my time in heroic Dragon Soul. But they're not in heroic Dragon Soul; they're in the Raid Finder, the place to learn and have fun -- so it doesn't matter, and there's no need to get upset.

There's a time and a place to get mad about a warrior's deciding his ranged attack is the best mechanic for attacking the boss 100% of the time. The Raid Finder isn't it.
