The Queue: Everything is better with a ukulele


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.

You might think I'm kidding, but if you take any song in existance and put a ukulele with it, you get gold. It's officially known as the transmorphic property of ukulele inclusion. The general transmorphic property of awesomeness has also been known to extend to people such as Fox Van Allen, Bill Clinton, Medivh, and Frank Sinatra, since if any of those people are included in something, it immediately becomes more awesome.

Jeff asked:

I was doing the quests for the intro to Deepholm last night and I had a question. Why did the sundering cause the maelstrom to form a portal between Azeroth and Deepholm why not another elemental plane?

Deathwing was being revived in Deepholm, and then when he got all escapey, he opened up the way to Deepholm through the Maelstrom.

Bjorn asked:

I know they have released what they want to do with stats in MoP (as a Hunter, stacking expertise will be a change) but have they released anything on the "stat-squish"? I've looked and I can't find anything other than the original "we want to do something so stats don't get out of hand" comments.

Nothing yet. And I haven't heard any whispers of the big squish or anything else either in a long time, so I don't really know what's up. If I had to predict Blizzard's behavior, my guess is that we'll get at least some indication of the current state of this topic soon. I know that this is mechanically the topic I'm most interested in, and I'm sure a lot of people are in the same boat.

Carpequeso asked:

Any thoughts on what the new cloth type will be in MoP? The expansions all added one related to their theme (Netherweave, Frostweave, Embersilk). Since we're (at least in part) fighting against the Sha, I'm betting on Ragecloth right now.

I really like Shinae's guesses: Mistweave or Jadeweave. I'd say something using the name silk is also a possibility, like Tranquil Silk or the like.

Cutaia, you're just wrong. Entirely wrong. Polyester? No.

Tomas asked:

If Aldori Legacy Defender is made for Dranei Paladins, which shield is good for Blood Elves'? I've been looking far and wide for a good BE shield, to no avail...

There's an entire raid full of blood elf gear. And the Sword Breaker's Bulwark is in particular the iconic blood elf shield.
