The Queue: A very bad yak

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 was one of my favorite quest setups in MoP. "I don't think you understand how the yak temple works."

iztest asked:

After questing for a while in the Jade forest, i hearthed to Stormwind. How do I get back to Jade forest?

Look for the hot air balloon by the old Cataclysm portal areas. There's a portal on that little island to take you back to Pandaria.

JeffLaBowski asked:

In Cata we had a nice quest chain once you hit 84 (at least on alliance side) that involved Anduin. It had some lore bits and gave you a decent piece of blue gear. Is there anything like this in Mists?

Anduin is all over the place in Jade Forest and beyond. There's also another chapter to the Wrathion story coming up titled "Two Princes," which sounds like it may just involve Anduin.

cyno01 asked:

Just finished the second part of Stoneplow last night. If the Mantids can fly... why was a wall keeping them at bay?

Not all mantids can fly; the ones that can are scouts and light infantry, hardly the bruisers of their army.

merkavar asked:

Do you drink tap water on a regular basis. Straight from the tap no filter jug thing or purification thingis.

My tap water smells like you could light it on fire, so no, I don't.

Mystex asked:

I bought the Digital Collector's Edition in advance and I now have one or more allts with the CE mount and pet in their bags. The items are soulbound, of course, but tagged as "already known" so I can't just learn them again. Is it safe to simply delete them on the alts that have them in their bags still?

Yep, it's safe to delete them now that pets and mounts are account-wide.

thebl4ckdog asked:

how long or what patch do you think the Zandalari Isle will open up? At the moment, it's on the map of Pandaria, but if you fly to it, you'll hit an invisible I guess not ALL of Pandaria was unshrouded from the Mists. :)

I'm guessing it'll be involved with the Thunder King raid whenever that ends up happening, given that the Zandalari were the ones that resurrected him.

triforceelf asked:

I keep seeing Alani the Stormborn up on my server, but I can't attack him and no one seems that interested in killing him. What's the secret to dropping the big red dragon?

Level 90 mobs in the Vale have a rare chance to drop Skyshards, which combine into a Sky Crystal if you have ten. The Sky Crystal can be used to aggro Alani, and you get a red cloud serpent mount for killing him. The mount (unfortunately) requires you to be exalted with the August Celestials.
