Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Alex Ziebart will be your host today.

Oh, Mondays. Why must you follow Sundays? Can't you be more like Thursdays, coming before Fridays?

Now that I've made myself sound like a twisted hybrid of Garfield and a certain song that shan't be named, we're going to move onto the Q&A and pretend it never happened.

Sainthubbins asked:

Has the required ilevel for the 5.2 LFR been officially announced yet?



Yep! You must be 480 ilevel tall to enter the Throne of Thunder.

Soeroah asked:

Oh hells, what if Garrosh is killed but Sylvanas resurrects him as a servant?

Does the Warchief mantle follow someone into undeath? I'm not entirely sure there's precedence for it yet. Maybe Sylvanas should go for it and find out.

@duskhawk asked:

Where do undead ponies (Forsaken mounts) come from?

This might be somewhat distressing, and I'm just taking a shot in the dark here, but I would guess undead ponies come from ponies that have expended their ability to be alive.

metaxum asked:

why would your raid group raid with out pants...

For the fun of it. Back in vanilla WoW (which certainly had a different raiding landscape), our main tank reached the point where she was never in much danger of death. Short of baddies in Naxxramas, she was largely unkillable. Since I played a healer at the time, both of us found ourselves bored in raids quite often. To keep things exciting, she'd regularly remove her pants (or other pieces of equipment) in raids to make things more interesting. To make sure you guys aren't getting the wrong idea here: she played a dwarf. A male dwarf. She would make me heal her bare, hairy, rock-hard dwarven ass.

It made things fun, so why not? For the confused, metaxum's question was in reference to yesterday's edition of The Queue.

Alexey asked:

I've never seen original Naxxramas, so I got curious - how did you get inside a flying fortress without flying in Vanilla? Was there some portal or something like that?

There was a portal on the ground that sent you into the raid zone. To use the portal, you had to attune yourself -- that meant dropping a whole lot of gold unless you were exalted with the Argent Dawn, at which point the attunement became completely free.

Considering exalted only required killing a bunch of easy, soloable mobs, getting it for free only required a time investment. The time investment might have been fairly substantial for many players ... but I spent my free time mercilessly slaughtering the undead of the Plaguelands anyway, far beyond exalted.
