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.

She said I could have one peanut butter square, but only after they cooled.

Richard6 asked:

Now that there are solo scenarios implemented in the game that seem to work very well, what are the chances we will see a kind of raiding "tutorial" scenario, where you choose your role (tank heal or dps)and undergo challenges that push you to your limits. There could be certain levels like easy, medium, hard, etc. and completing them could give an achievement to let people know you ARE qualified to raid even though you haven't done a particular dungeon. Or make it a pre-requisite to LFR <_<

Proving Grounds, which Zarhym assures us are still on the way, are meant to fill that particular mastering-your-class tutorial role.

SallyBowls asked:

I was very surprised and disappointed with Blizzard's recent announcement that the farm was going away. It should at least last through MoP I hope. Right? Right? Google Reader and now the farm? Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world!

You misread the Blizzard quote; they just meant it probably wouldn't have more additions and won't be a part of the next expansion. It's not gonna just disappear off the face of the earth.

Zaronis asked:

In Classic we fought dragons. In Burning Crusade we fought things that killed dragons. In Wrath we fought undead dragons. In Cataclysm we went back to fighting dragons, which kind of was a step down. Now in Mists we only see a few Cloud Serpents. Do you think Blizzard felt dragons were a little overdone in WoW?

It's safe to say everybody is just a little sick of dragons (and doubly sick of drake mounts). MoP is a welcome dragon break. Hopefully we'll have more space dragons in the next expansion.

Kaitlin Webb asked:

Who does the voice acting for Lor'themar? He sounds a lot like Iaian Glen to me.

That would be Gideon Emery, who's also known for voicing Balthier in Final Fantasy XII and Fenris in Dragon Age 2.

JoshDevin asked:

Are you guys having a PAX East get together? I checked and you don't have a panel like last year. SAD :(

I believe a few writers are going to the show, but we're not having a panel or an official party.
