The Queue: Slow queues day

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.

Today's late edition of The Queue is brought to you by almost nobody asking a single question in yesterday's comments! Pretty sweet.

@Arochius asked:

if all classes got questlines akin to the warlock green fire one, what would the rewards be and the story driving it?

I think you've been asking this question for about a month now, so before I give any sort of answer, I wanted to say that I haven't been ignoring you. I've been dodging it because listing rewards and stories for all 10 remaining classes is kind of a big project, bigger than I care to cover in The Queue. But since we're short on questions today, I'll give an example off the top of my head.

I don't play a mage, so I can't say what mages would want for sure, but they could, for example, quest for an alternative water elemental. Green fire is completely cosmetic, so the same can apply here. Instead of a water elemental, how about a water/ice revenant from Northrend? Or one of the elementals from Cataclysm? Or, for fire mages, what about replacing the visual of one of their spells with a phoenix? The phoenix has some lore badassery in that it was something fairly unique to Kael'Thas, he knew how to summon/conjure them, but not many other people did. Mages could delve into Kael's old books and unlock the secret to doing it.

@philedens asked:

When is there going to be a WoW Insider App? Much less inconspicuous looking at an app on my phone than on my computer at work..

We're unlikely to get an app. If we ever end up getting a site redesign (don't hold your breath), we would overhaul our mobile layout so you don't need an app. You could bookmark it on your homepage if you want and basically get the same experience. If such a thing were to happen, it would be later this year, since we do share resources with the other sites in our network.

@alexxthenerd asked:

the Pegasus mounts are coming out patch 5.3 right?

They're in the datafiles for patch 5.3, but that doesn't mean you'll be able to acquire them immediately in patch 5.3. Right now it looks like they'll be a reward for participation in the Hearthstone beta.


If you had a choose 4 WoW NPC's to run a 5-man with, who would you pick?

Admiral Taylor and the SI:7 crew. No question.

  • Tank Admiral Taylor
  • Healer Mishka (bandages!)
  • DPS Amber Kearnen, Sully "The Pickle" McLeary, and yours truly
Pretty awesome group, I say. Assuming Sully doesn't pull everything before we're ready.
