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.

Part pom. Part husky. All cute.

Neuromante asked:

I just had a chat with an old friend of mine and old WoW player. He claims that he's played more than a year on his account (throughout all his alts). Is there a way to verify that? I know you can log on all your alts and add the /played time on each one, but that is pretty difficult if you are like me and have many alts spread through many realms. It doesn't include the alts you delete, either.

You can't do it in the default UI, but addons like Altoholic will total everything together for you. Beware: you might not like what you discover!

Lugtonex asked:

a few years ago I remember a graphic or picture that show some odd ball stats like the most killed NPC in game or the least done quest in game is there anywhere to find this information for the current game?

Unfortunately, that site feature (whose name I can't remember) stopped working years ago. It was pretty cool, though! I remember the number-one regular-mob killer of players was the old Defias Pillager.

For the record: yes, you get bonus rep as Horde from an Operation Shieldwall Grand Commendation.

Thanks for the confirmation! You heard the man, folks.

piereo asked:

Has it ever been explained why Arthas never raised some of his more powerful adversaries or powerful figures of interest? I've gone through the Arthas novel, and yet some questions in this regard still persist: Why he didn't raise Uther, or Antonidas? What about the old Azerothian heroes, like Lothar? Such powerful characters would have surely made for not only interesting character development/conflict, but also extremely powerful allies to the Scourge.

There are a few schools of thought on this one. The first is that Arthas was more or less focused on getting to the Lich King in Northrend and didn't really need the distraction of raising more undead, even ones that would have added insult to injury. The second is that there was still some measure of humanity in Arthas, which also explains why he never hit Azeroth with the full force of the Scourge and wiped everyone out, even though he easily could have.

There are others, too -- it maybe required a lot of power, or he needed their bodies, etc.
