The Queue: You'll have to move fast

Michael Sacco

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

Sometimes I'm a little glad WoW doesn't have interactive conversations.

underground_slacker asked:

Maybe i missed something, but why on earth is the Dragon Soul airship boss backed up by Vrykul?

Was there any precedent for this?

I mean i get they could be disillusioned after losing both arthas and ymiron and be willing to join the twilights hammer cult, but some explanation would be nice y'know?

I just assumed that they were around because we're in Northrend for most of Dragon Soul. After Arthas' death, I'm sure a lot of them were looking for a new lord to die for. One "death god" is as good as another, right?

brentNelson asked:

If Blizz is going to give the monk class to all races except the two Cata races (Worgen and Goblin), won't it have to update the models for those races so they can animate stuff like rolls and flying spin kicks? I guess they might not have to, but I can hardly imagine an undead tucking into roll with their current skeletons.

There's definitely work being done the old race models to retrofit monk animations onto them. It's also been stated that there's revamp work being done on old race models anyway, so it's a two birds, one stone situation.

Xorthus asked:

We've only seen a couple Pandaren NPCs so far; what are the lore-consistent naming conventions for Pandas?

As far as I can tell? Regional flavor (Chinese style, in this case) first name, English compound word last name, like nearly every other race in the game.

Kyle asked:

I'm not sure how appropriate this question is - but over on the forums I noticed that Joystiq has been given diablo 3 beta keys to give away - Is that to the WoWinsider people or that other joystiq?

Just the mothership.

Sir Broose asked:

Is it safe to assume that if you pass out multiple scrolls of resurrection invites and have more than one person use them, that you will get multiple benefits - a spectral mount on more than one character, etc.?

You can only send out two scrolls per day, but yes, you can benefit from multiple scrolled friends. That way, you can get yourself a spectral mount on whichever character you like.

brian asked:

What do you think will be a good gold making strategy in the beginning of mists?

Commenter Puntable's advice is pretty good:

Do you mean the first few weeks? You have two options. 1. Sell all the materials you gather for inflated prices, and put off leveling your professions, or 2. Level your professions quickly to try and be one the first to sell the new crafted items.
