The Queue: Product placement

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.

I feel weird having product placement on my Siren's outfit, but the Torgue one looks so good on her!

Kvalri asked:

I've got a lore question for you. Where are the Pandaren cities? If they've been in control of the continent for thousands of years why haven't they progressed beyond small, wooden villages? With the possible exceptions of Dawn's Blossom (which is pretty small and has more of a back-water feel) and Halfhill (a small farming village) I can't find a real, Pandaren City... their version of Silvermoon, Stormwind, Orgrimmar, Darnassus, etc... The Shrines have been closed off to the majority of Pandaren society for about the same length of time, and they were constructed at the Mogu's behest, so I don't think they really count either. Am I just misinterpreting the intended scale of places in Pandaria, are we supposed to imagine there's, "more than meets the eye?" I r confuzzled.

Dawn's Blossom is currently the largest pandaren "city". Pandaren aren't really the city-building types, apparently. They don't seem to have any real desire for expansion, which seems to fit with their personality.

BlazeNor asked:

Is there any chance that Blizzard will eliminate tapping targets (mobs) all together or kill stealing from the game (at least keep it to just factions)? And do you think that WoW can benefit from such a thing?

Tagging is a relic from the EQ days and intended to be a griefing deterrent. I'm not saying WoW wouldn't benefit from it, but it would have benefited from it the most at launch. I mean, the system works fine in Guild Wars 2, but Guild Wars 2 was also designed from the ground up to have that feature in it.

Amaxewardiary asked:

I'm looking to sell my duplicated pets (the ones that can be sold) but I can't figure out where to get the cages to do so. Were those gray rusty cages I vendored the ones that were supposed to do it?

All you need to do is right-click on the pet in your journal. Any pet that can be caged will have the option come up.

Pyro asked:

"My partner cannot stop picking this penguin cookie jar up and hugging it when we go to Target. Every single time we go. Every time."

I am going to get into heaps of trouble - no flaming please - but is this statement indicative of a same-gender relationship?

(My curiosity has gotten the worst of me, I'm afraid, and I know it's none of my business, except that the above statement was written on a public post, and that was the first thing I thought, and I just don't want to have a mistaken thought going on about it.)

Nah, I'm a dude and she's a lady; I just like the word "partner" better because it's more indicative of the kind of relationship we have. "Girlfriend" doesn't really adequately convey that to me -- it's always seemed a short-term, err, term. Your mileage may vary.
