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.

Seriously, just go ahead and see it.

dimmak42 asked:

I just did Magister's Terrace and I noticed Kael references that Illidan is half-night elf. Do you think he is referencing his demonic corruption? This doesn't make too much sense given his own demonic corrupted body though.

Perhaps Malfurion and Illidan are not pure NEs? It might explain how such "low" night elves have such immense power.

He's referring to Illidan, who is literally half-demon since he drank from the Skull of Gul'dan.

htaler asked:

Do you think that the "Titan" project from Blizzard can be Warcraft-related after all? They just said it's not MMO, so maybe it's Titan's world building game?

Titan is not a Warcraft game. And where did Blizzard say it wasn't an MMO?

Skyrei asked:

This has probably been answered a hundred times already but....

Its been stated that you will not receive credit for an achievement through combined progress (2 different characters with 50k HKs will not give you 100k HKs) Does this also apply to Meta achievements?

Only rewards are shared between characters. Criteria are not.

OhioSwanson asked:

Where is the wowinsider show this week? =(

I was seriously ill for a few days this week, and Mat had some scheduling issues. It'll be back next week.

mbison42 asked:

With the changes to the loot system coming in Pandaria do you think the days of soulbound items are coming to an end? I would like to see all BoEs become BoAs. With the loot system the way it is now where you can only need for your class and greed for everything else, you would still be greeding for your alts against everyone else.

Blizzard has been helping people with alts with heirlooms, archaeology items, and more, but getting rid of BoE and BoPs would just murder the drive to actually do content on more than one character. Blizzard wants you to play other characters besides your main.

SeanClayton asked:

Whats the word on Monks thus far amongst the WoW-Insider staff? Have you had a writer or writers go "i want Brewmaster column duties!" FYI I love monk tanks. They're getting better with each patch but that's just me.

We have a few on-staff folks interested in doing monk articles, but we likely won't assign the column until the class is in a more complete state (and the expansion is closer to launch, of course).

Brian Luzovich asked:

Im a little confused with shared mounts. Is that even being implemented? I know achievments are getting shared but what about achievs with mounts tied to them. If an achiev that gives you a mount as a reward such as the icc mounts or the 100 mount achiev pheonix or any other ones, will my other characters get these mounts aswell? And what about mounts that are tied to achievments? Such as the swift white hawkstrider from magisters terrace wich gives you an achiev for learning it. And what about my 2 man rocket from raf? Will that rocket get shared? I am so confused on this whole thing, what is getting shared and what isnt?

Yes to pretty much all of those questions. The feature went live on the beta last night, actually.
