The Queue: Plants of ill repute

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.

Gonna use this soapbox to link my new personal blog project, Plants of Ill Repute, where I post about interesting and dangerous plants. I love plants, especially poisonous or otherwise mean ones. Check it out!

Matthew2 asked:

Will I miss the theramore preexpansion stuff if I log in a week before mist goes on? Does anyone know?

We have no idea. Blizzard has been mum about the whole thing. All we know is that there's a Theramore thing and we're taking part in it.

klmeisinger asked:

Is the new loot system for LFR making it into 5.0.4?

Yes, but since it only works with the raids coming with MoP, it won't be of much use to you when 5.0.4 launches!

natewwood asked:

Its there a way to pre download the expansion if i bought a hard copy CE in store?

You'll already have installed the expansion if you're patched up to 5.0.4. That's the beauty of the Blizzard downloader.

jodyshugart asked:

What's your opinion on why we haven't had gem slots on leveling gear since TBC? They're already admitted that the game is based around end game content. What would be the harm in putting some gear out there with gem slots? It might give green quality gems more of a market.

Spending time trying to min-max leveling gear isn't fun, and making it an option for increasing character power essentially makes it compulsory. Save that stuff for endgame!

thekaiserchiefs asked:

I saw some questions on here on what will happen to jc tokens come 5.0. While I didn't get there early enough to read it all, I was wondering if they're changing at all. My jc has like 20 illustrious on them.

First of all, I love your band. Second of all, it's unlikely that they'll upconvert JC tokens. I don't think there's any precedent for it.
