Yeah, The Queue is being published at 12 p.m. instead of 11 a.m. today. Wanna fight about it?

glyakk asked:

Given how the old models are still being used until they are updated, what are the impressions of the animations being used on the old models? Do any look completely out of place?

The new monk animations generally look pretty good across all races, though there are some oddities if you look at them too closely. A few of the races seem to detach their arms completely when they're performing some of the new animations. Because of how the models are built, it appears that their arms get pinched off at the shoulder. However, in the standard flow of combat, you won't notice it too much. It's the sort of thing you'll notice immediately if you're screwing around in a model viewer where you can control the speed of what you're viewing, though.

Overall, they don't look too bad.

Chris16 asked:

I was in a raiding guild during vanilla, but quit before BC. I didn't come back until WotLK and by then the 40-person raids were gone. I must have missed the explanation for this. Why did Bliz cut 40-person raids? Are they too hard to organize on low pop servers? Are they hard to test for Bliz?

The 40-man raids were more difficult to balance, but the largest reason is that 40-man raids were far too hard to organize, yes. The largest hurdle to seeing content at the time was filling up your raid group, and when you have that many people in a raid, each individual's contributions become much less meaningful.

johnnyhotsausage asked:

Do we know of any questing in the new xpac that is tied to the Steamwheedle Cartel reps? This nifty addon, Factionizer, is telling me to grind about 5k more sailors in Tanaris for my Steamwheedle reps and I was hoping there would be an alternative if I waited it out.

I have not seen anything related to the Steamwheedle Cartel faction in Mists of Pandaria. Have fun grinding your sailors.

What will Orb of Deception turn Pandas into

So far? Themselves. It is ineffective on pandaren currently.

@FatherTouk asked:

Why can I not report a player for both spamming and language? If you report one, the other option disappears.

It's not really necessary. Pick whichever offense you think is the most grievous, and when the GMs take a look at the chat logs when investigating your ticket, they'll see what was happening. Creating two tickets just clogs up and overcomplicates the process.
