Mikk asked:

With the new 5.3 pvp changes and the announcement that resilience will be removed from most items, has there been any indication of what they are going to do with pvp heirlooms? As a recent devote to pvp, I have been working on accumulating all the pvp heirlooms and I would hate to see all that work wasted ... Maybe they will replace the pvp resilience with pvp power on heirlooms? Any info appreciated.

The patch 5.3 PTR patch notes came out before a blog about the PVP changes could be published, so I imagine we'll be hearing a lot about what the changes mean for various types of gear soon (after PAX East).

AdrianNieto asked:

Is the Argent Crusade considered a Kingdom now? They have their own people, a mix of Alliance and Horde citizens, they don't choose sides in the war between the 2 main factions, they have Hearthglen, they cleaned Stratholme, Light's Hope Chapel, the Eastern plaguelands towers... and I don't see them turning them back to either the Alliance or the Horde, but using them as base of operations.

I don't think they're officially classified as anything but an independent group at the moment, but you're right in that they have a lot of control in the top half of the Eastern Kingdoms. They'd have to declare themselves sovereign to be considered a kingdom, and I don't know if Tirion is the declare-yourself-king type.

johnny.ramos33 asked:

Just came back from a long hiatus, I have two DKs on the same account and same server, one has the winged steed of the ebon blade, the other one doesnt. does anyone know why?

Class-specific mounts aren't account-wide, even to characters of the same class, as far as anyone can tell. Don't know if it's a bug or intended.

ZachThompson asked:

What's the evidence of the Old Gods having a presence in Shadowmoon Valley? It's been a while since I've quested through that zone...

There's a questline involving you needing to to thwart a bunch of arrakoa who are summoning in something that looks an awful lot like C'thun. We don't know if it's an Old God, but it is named "An Ancient and Powerful Evil".

gamer4279 asked:

I was willing to bet that the announcement was going to be Blizzard All Stars. In fact when i heard the name "Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft" i was almost certain it was Blizzards DOTA game. Obviously I was wrong... But what does that mean for Blizzard All Stars? Is it still in the works? Has it been scrapped or put off for the moment?

There are multiple teams at Blizzard working on multiple projects. Blizzard All-Stars is still being developed. Hearthstone was in development for many years.
