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.

That's what my Mechromancer wants! Smash the state (and bandit heads)!

Ron2 asked:

For reasons that I don't recall, Lord Godfrey (having been risen and put to work in the Forsaken assault on Gilneas) turns on Syvlanas and shoots her dead. She is promptly resurrected by the Val'kyr, no worries, unlife goes on. If Sylvanas doesn't seem any worse for wear after her reanimation, couldn't she just keep doing this? What would it take to kill her once and for all?

There were 9 val'kyr who remained after Arthas' death and went to work for Sylvanas. One died to seal the bargain between the vrykul and Sylvanas, one died fighting, and three died to bring her back after Godfrey killed her, leaving four val'kyr. That's maybe one more resurrection if the formula remains the same as the first time. So I guess the answer is "kill her two more times"!

Koboi_K asked:

With 5.1, the achievement "I choose you" for beating Aki the Chosen will reward 3000 gold. Should I wait with beating him till then, or will I get the gold retroactively when I beat him now?

Wait. I don't think you'll get the reward retroactively.

Richard_BB1 asked:

Am I the only one that thinks that Elegon feels more like it should be the last fight for Mogu'shan Vaults, rather than Will of the Emperor?

Nah, Elegon is just a thing the mogu made. The Will of the Emperor is much more closely related to them. It makes much more sense for it to be the final encounter.

midnightlurker asked:

How is Pandaria governed?

Well, the pandaren specifically. Do they have any government beyond the town level? The Golden Lotus are a secret society, and the Shado-Pan handle military needs without AFAICT actually bossing anyone around.

Have the pandaren just gotten along being mellow in the ten thousand years since the Last Emperor ascended to pandabuddhahood?

It looks like the four temples -- or perhaps the Celestials themselves -- and the needs of those temples more or less dictate the goings-on of each particular province, but I don't think there's any real central government beyond the town/province level. There's certainly no emperor.

Nocjin asked:

Was it just a rumour that Jaina teleported the whole mage tower out of Theramore? Something to do with the effort involved turning her hair white

Yeah, it's just a rumor. In the book the tower is thoroughly destroyed by the mana bomb. It's gone.
