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.

He saves what others throw away. He says that he'll be rich someday.

joshyeaton asked:

I was on a female Bloodelf Monk and she was auto attacking. Is this a bug, or did Blizzard add auto attacks to monks?

Monks now have an auto-attack. Devs commented that the lack of auto-attack just felt too un-WoW -- it didn't feel right not to start hitting an enemy when you clicked on it or to have to wait until you could use an ability to finish off a mob with a sliver of health.

Tw asked:

Will CISPA have any affect on WoW (or mmo/gaming period)?

Blizzard already contacts authorities of its own volition in the event of credible threats made to/from players, so not really, no.

RexQuondam asked:

do the various guild perks that boost riding speed also affect druid flight form?

They do!

nakulshankar asked:

I recently came back via the Scroll of Res program. How long do I have my "Level up to 80" offer? Could I save this reward until MoP and use it on a monk?

I don't see why not. RAF levels worked on worgen and goblins and DKs. Blizzard hasn't said anything about it officially either way, though.

uncledido asked:

With Account-wide achievements announced/discovered the other day, has there been any indication as to whether reputations will be linked amongst characters of the same faction? In other words, if my main has the 'Ambassador' title (all home city reps at exalted), will my other characters have their reputations panes synced to show this?

No, it doesn't work that way. You get the tangible rewards (titles, pets, mounts, etc.) on all of your characters, but not the actual criteria required to get the achievement, if that makes sense.

DopeDanny asked:

With blizzard putting more emphasis on alts and giving people things to do in game do you think we will ever see some future classes that are way more niche and designed to be alts?

As in they have a much more limited scope of what they are designed for, like one single spec. Like say a bard for raiding to buff players and manage cc that cant hold its own and so is purely for raiding with a dedicated group? or an engineer who can build seige tanks or canons in pvp and repair damaged walls but has not raiding capabilities whatsoever?

It sounds mad but is it so impossible given the increasing message from blizzard of 'we want people in the game more often for longer' in terms of things like the tillers, account wide achievements and account wide pets that we could see some classes in the future that exist only to BE alts?
