The Queue: Two dead gnomes

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.

Why are they here? Nobody knows.

On second thought, maybe they're grummles.

@Skeptikk asked:

Read any news from Blizzard on the new spam in the calendar that players are seeing?

We haven't heard anything. I might possibly be crazy, but I think this has cropped up once before. Gold sellers were reusing accounts they stole ages ago to stick ads in everybody's calendar, and people assumed it was people hacking Blizzard's calendar systems because they didn't realize someone in their guild had a stolen account.

That may not be the case here, but that's what has happened in the past.

RobertBishop asked:

I'm working on trying to solo old raids and I ran across one problem. Aka, ICC. Do I need to kill all of the bosses in order to get to Lich King? And if so, how on Azeroth do I do the healing boss as a hunter?!

Yes, you need to kill all of the bosses to get to the Lich King. And as a hunter, I'm not sure you can kill the healing boss. Maybe there's a hunter secret to it, but I don't know it. Maybe readers will have something for you in the comments if there is.

ash.w.miller asked:

Is Moira really turning over a new leaf? Or is she just playing nice and luring everyone into false senses of security. Considering what she's done, that would be a very quick, very dramatic shift in her personality.

Moira strikes me as someone that wants power over all else. If not for her, then for her son. Right now, she's sitting on a council of a reunified dwarven race. Sounds pretty swank. If I were her, I wouldn't do anything to screw it up.

Aubrey asked:

What datamined item that's yet to be released are you most looking forward to? Talking about things like the Skyclaw (which I never even saw a model for), the Bat mount, and various other vanity items.

For me it's probably a toss-up between the Faerie Dragon mount (that thing has so much detail it's crazy) and the Bat mount (we've been waiting for Bat mounts forever). Faerie probably wins out as it's a totally new model, but I'm excited for both.

Pierre, obviously.

i.see.what.i.did.there asked:

Do you think we'll see Hearthstone available on an Android platform? How about pet battles?

Blizzard has mentioned that they're looking into other platforms (such as Android) for Hearthstone, but nothing is guaranteed at the moment. Pet battles ... it would be cool, but I'm guessing it's not a priority for them.
