The Queue: Attack of the Killer Tomatoes

Alex Ziebart

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

Yep. It's another Awesome '90s Cartoon day. Enjoy.

John asked:

I am looking forward to the release of Mists of Pandaria. Especially the new Pandaren race. As far as new races being a potential new addition, do you think they will introduce any new races in future expansions or do you think this is probably it? I don't realistically see naga or murlocs being playable races. Something I thought would be pretty neat would be a character that could go from humanoid form to dragon. Like humans transform to worgen. Perhaps even a dragon in a humanoid form maybe. Just thoughts.

I'm sure Blizzard will add more races to the game eventually. When? Who knows. Personally, I think it's futile to try and guess what those races may be based on what's in the game right now -- Blizzard can add pretty much whatever it wants, whenever it wants.

What I'd like to see is some race of plant people. I don't know why. I have a bizarre fascination with plant-y races in fiction, be it myconids from Dungeons & Dragons, sporeloks from The Burning Crusade, or Guild Wars 2's sylvari. Plant people, please!

recneps1337 asked:

do you know what the new profession level is called like now how its illustrious_____?

In Mists of Pandaria, trade skills will increase to level 600 to a new level called Zen Master.

Dural asked:

Does WoW Insider plan to do another round of "[Insert Spec Here] 101" articles after MoP's release to catch everyone up on class changes and updates?

Yeah, absolutely. Talents and skills will be changing enough in Mists of Pandaria that a new round of leveling/101 guides makes sense to us.

Allenok asked:

What are the best heirloom weapons to get for each Monk spec?

If you want to level as a healer, use the Dignified Headmaster's Charge. If you want to tank, go with the Repurposed Lava Dredger. To DPS, grab weapons with agility -- I honestly haven't looked into the effect that weapon damage has on monks yet, but it seems like slower would be better. Go with the Dal'Rend's Sacred Charge and/or the Battleworn Thrash Blade.

Updated: Sorry, my mistake. Monks cannot use 2-handed maces.

nicko666 asked:

Is there any news on a monk column/columnist for WoW Insider?

We haven't fully decided what we're doing about a monk column/columnist. We may try a completely different method of monk coverage and not have a dedicated monk column at all.

It's open warfare between Alliance and Horde in Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft's next expansion. Jump into five new levels with new talents and class mechanics, try the new monk class, and create a pandaren character to ally with either Horde or Alliance. Look for expansion basics in our Mists FAQ, or dig into our spring press event coverage for more details!
