The Queue: Call me "mashup"

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.

This mashup is...insane. I love it so much. Help.

Red asked:

What is Blizzard's reasoning for locking Raid Finder for the first week of the patch? I can't think of a single good one; in fact, I think it was a terrible idea. Please enlighten me.

As I understand it, it's to give a sense of accomplishment to the people who manage to take out bosses the first week. This way the "normal" raiders get the feeling of (temporary) exclusivity for their kills. This was something that was complained about heavily when the feature was first implemented.

draknfyre asked:

So I finally hit the Darkmoon Faire (really, I hadn't hit it since the new island was put in) and the Tonk Commander game seems bugged. The scores weren't carrying over, and resetting to 0 every time. Seeing the comments on Wowhead, it's not supposed to be doing this.

Anyone else noticing this?

I haven't personally noticed it. Might want to check the Bug Report forums and see if other people are having the problem; if they're not, maybe it's a UI thing?

brix50 asked:

any comment on -

Dave Kosak said that in an interview on the german site buffed.

"Q: Do you even plan additional 5-mam dungeons for the rest of the patches of MoP?

A: No plans regarding that. There'll be more scenarios and you'll still be able to use the LFR tool for the previous tier of raiding. At the moment, we don't plan to release new dungeons.

This does make sense, honestly -- Blizzard has said that 5-mans take a long time to develop and are really only worth adding if they tie into the story of a patch or zone. With Raid Finder and scenarios there's plenty of stuff you can do for points and loot without the need for a new 5-man.

I like 5-mans, but if this means better, faster, larger content elsewhere, I'm okay with it.

wrathofkublakhan asked:

Will we get shado-pan assault rep in the LFR?

Yes! You get rep for each boss once per week.
