The Queue: I hate snakes

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.

I've yet to survive a full game of the excellent Spelunky, but videos like this make me want to persevere.

RyanStansifer asked:

Which source is the correct source for triggering the achievement "Mount Parade?" or the in-game mount pane?

It triggers based on how many mounts your specific logged-in character has access to. The number on the Armory counts all mounts, whereas the one in-game takes faction and class into account.

owens.nathan1337 asked:

What are the chances of Gamon being an Org raid boss?

Basically zero, but maybe he'll make a cameo defending the city. After all, who better to defend Orgrimmar than someone who's died in it a million times?

Nocjin asked:

Gilneas left the alliance cause they wouldn't wipe out the orcs when they had the chance after the second war, right? Considering the orcs have since gone on their third genocidal path of conquest, ordering Gilneas to be wiped out in the process, do you think Genn was right all along?

I wouldn't say he was right; there are bad humans, bad elves, bad gnomes, etc, but we don't generally encourage genocide against them. Besides, if the Alliance had executed all of the orcs in the Second War, we would've lost the Third pretty handily.

camcdonald51 asked:

Any news on 5.4 gear? I'm curious as to the ilevel, and just wondering if it would be worth the gold to make the crafted 522 helm for myself. It's a good upgrade over my current 496 piece, but I hesitate to spend that much on something that will become useless in short order, judging by how quickly patches have been coming out lately.

It's still two patches away, so I wouldn't really worry about it, but judging by the rate of ilvl growth per raid this expansion you can probably expect normal mode to be ~558 and heroic mode to be ~570.

angerfork asked:

While we are raiding Orgrimmar, where do you suppose the main Horde hub will be for AH and the like? Silvermoon? Or just a different phase of Orgrimmar?

I'm 100% sure the raid will be instanced and the normal, open-world city will be business as usual.
