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.
It's Monday. Have an antique porcelain candy bar advertisement. You deserve it.
What does the Shaohao reputation do in 5.4?
Enables you to purchase rewards on the Timeless Isle. Check them out on Wowhead.
have you heard any talk about giving the Black Market Auction House more locations? I love the BMAH and will gladly fork over the gold if there is something on there I want, but I hate having to trek all the way back to The Veiled Stair to check it or when I get outbid. (Yes, I am just that lazy in game). I just think it would be cool if there was some sketchy looking Pandaren BMAH Auctioneer in the basement of any empty house in Stormwind, or in the shadows of the Forlorn Cavern in IF, The Sewers of UC, you get the idea. They could even refuse to do business in a wandering guard got to close..... The possibilities are endless.
I haven't heard anything about this, but it seems likely to happen once Mists of Pandaria draws to a close. It was conceived as something unique to Pandaria, but we won't be going back there anymore in the next expansion. At the very least, I expect we'll see a location that houses something similar in the territories included in the next expansion, but spreading the love would be nice, too.
If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?
The ability to write the first sentence/paragraph of an article or work of fiction without spending countless hours agonizing over it. Because it would make my life significantly easier.
Milky way or Snickers? No, seriously though, Milky way or Snickers?
Milky Way. I don't hate peanuts, I actually like them, but the chunkiness they add to the Snickers doesn't jive for me. It's like they interrupt an otherwise smooth chew and serve no other purpose. A Baby Ruth is how you do peanuts in candy bars.
Who is the rightful ruler of Orgrimmar?
That depends on what you mean as rightful. Garrosh was appointed Warchief through whatever passes for right of succession in the Horde. Thrall named him the guy, thus he is the guy. If you mean rightful as in who originally owned the area now called Durotar ... probably the elves, tauren, or centaur. I'm not sure if we really know. There are details about that kind of thing in the War of the Ancients novels, but it's still pretty fuzzy which races owned which territories.
Has there been any talk if add ons will work via connected realms in 5.4 things like My Roleplay(MRP) that uses channels.
I imagine it would depend on the mod. Each mod author will likely try to approach it a little different. The specific mod you mention, MyRolePlay, doesn't work with CRZ and I have no idea if it will work with connected realms. I haven't heard or seen anything to indicate either way. Or if it's even possible.
Do you think there is a shift to more temporary content? BF:B is going away & The Timeless Isle is meant to come and go in lore.
I've seen no indication that the Timeless Isle will actually disappear one day in-game, but we have seen a trend toward the world changing to keep up with content patches. The Vale being destroyed is another example. We might see it restored to what it used to be one day, but at least for now, it's wrecked. Back in the day, Blizzard would never have done something like that.
They'll probably keep that sort of thing rare, though. It's a bit silly to consistently develop things that are meant to be temporary. I'm sure it will continue to happen from time to time, but they won't eliminate all of the content added in every patch.
