The Queue: Neon Jungle

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.

This is my favorite track from Double Dragon Neon, scored by my friend Jake "Virt" Kaufman. You should get the game on Xbox Live or PSN (and get the OST, too).

chojirules asked:

Can anyone tell me if farms are account wide or character based?

I can! I can! They're character-specific.

aschrisman asked:

Since 5.0.4 I've noticed a different set of portrait plates, that are missing the colored background behind the name. At first, I thought it was a glitch, but I've started to see a pattern. Are these new portrait plates a sign that you are fighting lower-hp mobs that fight as a pack? Or is this just a coincidence I've noticed?

From a cursory examination (and personal experience), it looks like those nameplates are reserved for "weak" mobs, like the trash mantid that hang out with stronger ones in Krasarang.

kylewmason asked:

On each known continent, there is a Titan structure (Uldum in Kalimdor, Ulduar in Northrend, and Uldaman in EK). Why isn't there a structure on Pandaria? Was the continent made through means unrelated to the Titans? Or is there just some kind of secret Blizzard is keeping from us?

I don't think it's a hard-and-fast rule; after all, when the titans were around, everything was one BIG continent.

skyreiser asked:

I'm was wondering if anyone was starting to or had made an add-on for pet battles yet? or if its even possible. I'm not looking for one i'm just curious if they're out there.

Yeah, there's like, a ton of them.

quatto asked:

A lot of players in my guild left the game at one point or another during the pre-expansion lull. However, a surprising amount of them still haven't returned to the game yet. I know mists is still essentially brand new, but these were regular players who would certainly have been there for, say, Wrath, It concerns me a bit and I was wondering if this is at all representative of the player base as a whole. Have you noticed this in your guild?

Turnover is inevitable in a game like this, but your experience is also anecdotal (like everyone else's). My guild is pretty healthy, with lots of people who went on hiatus having returned with MoP. Your mileage may (and does) vary.
