The Queue: Valor points and Wite-Out spills

Alex Ziebart

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.

When Jaina's new white hair was first revealed on her character model, I thought it looked ridiculous. Over time, though, I think I'm getting used to it. I still wish the border of white and blonde matched the flow of her hair better, it looks like an unfortunate Wite-Out spill at the moment, but it doesn't seem quite as bad to me as it once did. Eh!

@urban_infection asked:

What should we do now that VP will not be reset? Spend them or save them?

If you play on a regular basis, you might as well spend your valor points right away, then rebuild your supply before the launch of patch 5.2. If you play rarely, save them so you don't need to rush around restocking for what you want out of the new patch.

evelinda2121 asked:

Is something up with the comments section on the mobile site, or is it just me? Whenever I scroll to the comments, there's nothing there (except nbsp; or something like that). If I use the full site from my mobile, though, the comments work fine. Anyone else got this issue?

I answered this question on Monday (with the answer of "our editorial staff didn't do it, but I'll look into it") and I still don't have an answer, but I have kicked the issue up and the people who deal with that kind of thing will be looking into it as soon as they have a chance. Our techs/designers work on every site in AOL Tech and they tend to be busy people, so the fix might not happen immediately, but hopefully soon.

Revynn asked:

Guild website/forum: Worth the trouble?

It depends completely on your guild. Some guilds need the assistance with organization, or have a community that enjoys hanging out on forums together when they're not in-game. Those sorts of guilds would consider a forum essential, but other guilds can handle everything in-game really easily and their guild website doesn't serve any real purpose.

Gauge your guild's interest, try a free site for awhile if they're interested, and if it takes off, then invest more time in sprucing it up.

Shandeigh_D asked:

So, I was working on leveling my monk and I saw a mob with a red "!" over it's head and once killed it started a quest... I had never seen that before. Is that new?

If I remember correctly, that red quest marker has been around since Cataclysm. However, those types of quests aren't used very much, and when they are used, the mob tends to be hidden away somewhere and easily missed. For those reasons, most players don't know it exists.

@hstein3 asked:

Based on Robin's post on Moonglade last night, where would your favorite class go for training and "zen?"

Rogues are my current favorite, and I'd love for them to be integrated more closely into SI:7 for the Alliance and ... whatever the Horde has as its equivalent. You could use the existing SI:7 building in Stormwind, but make it more roguey. Require a password for entry!
