The Queue: It was a bit from the glorious twenty-fifth

Adam Holisky

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Adam Holisky (@adamholisky) will be your host today.
One of the best parts of the game right now is the auction house. There's so much gold to be made by all the people coming back to the game. I'm already cleaning out my remaining Cataclysm inventory in a big way, and it's all going to be gone when Mists hits.

And what does that mean?

Bank space. Glorious, glorious bank space.

Dearth asked:

Has Blizzard addressed the recipe duplication bug we get when entering cross-realm areas? As of this writing, I have ten copies of every recipe I can craft, and counting.

Not yet, but you're the third person I've heard mention this, so I'm sure that it's being taken care of. I'm sorta expecting a mini-patch next Tuesday to deal with a few things. We'll see though...

Jennifer asked:

Does anyone have any tips for dealing with rare spawns like Time Lost Proto Drake now that the zone is cross-server? It was frustrating enough competing with other mount hunters on my own server, let alone having all these other people there now too. :(

You're pretty much out of luck if you want to find these mobs easily now. There's no way to turn off cross-realm zoning, so you're always going to have more people involved now. The best solution is to just grab an addon and hope for the best. Let the farming begin...

Per asked:

Q: if I send a bunch of Items to a char of mine via the mailbox from another char of mine on the 23. of september, will it be there on the 25. of september? Does the mailbox "reset" in the event of an expansion like MOP?

Mailboxes will not reset at the start of Mists. There was one patch when mailboxes got wiped, and Blizzard immediately took the realms back offline to correct it. That was three years ago (or something like that).

Johnny asked:

Is it true that pvp power and resilience only work in bg's and arena's? If it is.. technically T13 will probably be best to have for that initial level and all the ganking going on eh?

Untrue. Those stats come into play anytime damage/healing is happening on another player. The location of such actions doesn't matter.

Jason asked:

Do you think Blizzard will continue to sell Digital Collector Editions after the launch of MoP?

I wouldn't see why they'd stop. In fact, I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that they'll offer older collector's edition over the digital download service as well. How many of us would pay to upgrade our accounts to the classic collector's edition just to get mini-diablo? I know I would.

Perpetual answers until September 25:

Can I use pet battles right now? No, not until Mists released on September 25.

Will any account be able to create a Pandaren on September 25? Yes.

Will any account be able to create a monk on September 25? No, only those accounts upgraded to Mists will be able to create and play the monk class.
