The Queue: Orc monks best monks


Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Mathew McCurley (@gomatgo) will be your host today.

Orcs -- probably the best race for monks that you didn't consider.


durandal asked:

When Young Pandawans hit lvl 10 and leave their Wandering Isle, are they able to come back or do they share the same fate as the goblins of Kezan?

Durandal gets first question -- and before the cut, because he used the word "Pandawans," and at 10 in the morning, it was funny. Sadly, no, the Wandering Isle is off-limits once you leave, much like Kezan. There is always the chance that we will return one day.

loop_not_defined asked:

My issue with Garrosh dealing with demonic forces is that he gets VERY UPSET when he finds out someone did EXACTLY THAT in Ashenvale. Not "throw you off a cliff" upset, but still pretty damned angry.

As far as replacements, I'm hoping for Zaela (Dragonmaw) to take the reins. She's dealt with demonic influence before and could still provide plenty of controversy (since she kind of looks up to Garrosh). Fact of the matter is that Orgrimmar is the Orc home town, and Orcs are going to need a new racial leader. While I'm certain Vol'jin will be the one to end Garrosh's life (see: troll starting town), I doubt him or Baine will be the ones that step in to take over.

But please, don't bring back Thrall. D:

If Garrosh goes bonkers because of demons, it will not be because he took them into himself willingly, but rather because of his arrogance and misunderestimating the ability, scope, and danger demons possess. Garrosh will be tricked, or Garrosh will be forced into a corner and make a stupid decision. This will not be Mannoroth again. This will be hubris, desperate and unfortunate.

If Zaela became Warchief, I would be incredibly happy. She's one of my favorite characters from Cataclysm and represents a lot of what Garrosh stood for while being less volatile. And then, whoa, the Horde is led by a woman. I'll be honest, I thought that I'd see a female Warchief before a Mag'har Warchief ...

wiedmaier asked:

My life just got crazy and I unsubbed. I put almost everything I had on the AH in case I don't make it back until Pandamonium. My internet was out last night, and I didn't get a chance to get my mail before the account expired.

Does the 30 days for mail apply to unsubbed accounts? Will I need to resub within 30 days if I don't want to lose my items/gold?

Yep. I lost a Dirge's Kickin' Chimaerok Chops like this. No joke. I should do another "biggest fail" Breakfast Topic soon ...

Murmel asked:

What Does the Pandaren Dance look like?

We do not know yet.

Thal asked:

Is Mr. Rossi playing the beta? (I bet he is.) If so, you know if he's planning on making a post about the new warrior abilities? I'm not playing the beta for several reasons, but I'm dying to know how the new mechanics and our sweet talents are working out!

Rossi and I talked this morning during our daily "Orc Chat in the Morning" Mumble radio show, and he made a pandaren warrior in the beta specifically to write about it. Expect it soon!

Boz asked:

Should I name my new Pandarin Cubbi, Gruffi, Zummi, or Tummi?


alzeer asked:

why is Sylvanas undead form is soo perfect? no decay no rips shown like most other undeads

Maybe it's Maybelline.

Silversol said:

If Garrosh starts drinking demon blood, just... keep him away from Cenarius.

"Nooooooo, not again!"
