The Queue: Simple and Clean

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.

I'm not entirely sure why, but Kingdom Hearts popped into my mind late last night. Was there anything cooler than the Battle of 1,000 Heartless back then? Heck, has there been anything cooler since? I don't think so.

Hurry up with Kingdom Hearts 3, Square. I'll happily buy whatever console you decide to put that baby on.

amaxewardiary asked:

Q on leveling pandaren monks. Are there any changes to the 1-60 zones?

There's nothing substantial so far. I suspect that by launch we'll see a small handful of pandaren quest givers scattered through some of the 1-to-60 zones just so players are exposed to the new race, but it won't go beyond that. It certainly hasn't yet.

Lugtonex asked:

has Blizzard said anything about a zone like TB or Wintergrasp??

This expansion will not have a Wintergrasp equivalent. Tom Chilton recently spoke in-depth about the face of PvP in Mists of Pandaria, and I highly recommend combing through what he wrote.

alexed93 asked:

Whats the best way for a casual gamer to follow the lore of WoW? I mean, I don't raid much at all due to commitments outside the game, and I find it difficult to think that people read the text of every single quest to know the stories of their levelling. Any tips?

Honestly? The first thing I would recommend is Know Your Lore here on WoW Insider. If you don't want to comb through pages and pages of articles and just want a topic list, go to our Lore page. Otherwise, hit up Wowpedia for all of your lore needs.

CarlosHoffman asked:

We get 1 talent every 15 levels.. that's ok with the cap for MoP (90).. but what about the next xpac.. Do you think we'll see another talent tree revamp???

I think we'll either see a shuffling of the talent tiers. Instead of getting a new talent every 15 levels, you'll get them slightly more frequently than that, so you get your last one at 95. Alternatively, Blizzard may forego adding a new tier of talents and offer some other new thing at level 95 -- like a new spell. You don't get a new baseline spell at level 90 in Mists of Pandaria; you get a talent at 90 and a baseline spell at 87.

dogin8tr asked:

Are you guys as sad as I am that we don't get a special level 90 spell and instead get a dinky little talent?

I'm not sad at all. I get a new baseline spell at 87, and a new spell of my choosing at 90. What's the diff'? I don't get it.

It's funny... Anduin sounds like he is 18 on live.

That's not too indicative of his actual age, though. Teenagers are weird. I remember being a high school freshman, sitting down in English 1 for the first time. On my left sat a kid that looked and sounded no older than 12 years old. On my right sat a kid with a full beard, a receding hairline, and the deepest, graveliest voice I've ever heard in my entire life. We were all 15.

I didn't hang out with Mr. Hairline very often, but I'm willing to bet he'd been able to buy alcohol without being carded by the age of 13, if he'd been so inclined.

Knobrum asked:

Any update on the Twilight Highlands Post-Mortem?

We haven't done anything with it. Is this a thing people actually want? Mr. McCurley left us recently, but I can grab a new sidekick to finish off the series if you folks so desire.
