The Queue: Patch 5.3 comes

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.

It's Monday. I'm tired. Let's do this.

Nocjin asked:

Are there any icons you've spent years not knowing what they actually are? It took me about 4 to realise that the cleave icon was not a parrot, and that there's a hand in the holy fire icon.

Every icon from the first half of World of Warcraft's lifespan with a hand in it. None of those hands look like hands. They look like undefined tubes or some kind of mutant goat heads.

qwerty31 asked:

Is it just me, or does switching a pet on/off your team reset all of its moves to their defaults? Is there a way to change this? Why on earth would it be set up this way?

It's not just you, that's how it works. It is extremely annoying. However, I believe it's being fixed in patch 5.3. In other words, tomorrow.

Bob asked:

Do you think Blizz would ever do something in patch 5.4 where Garrosh not only dies, but actually takes someone with him, so to speak? Like, is there any chance we'd see Lor'themar (just as one example) get killed in action?

I have some doubts that we'll see another faction leader drop in the assault on Orgrimmar, but I wouldn't be surprised to see the deaths of some notable named NPCs from this expansion. Say, the team that we helped take Jade Forest at the beginning of Mists of Pandaria.

Ron2 asked:

I live in a shack on a farm that I inherited a few months ago. It turns out the shack has a bit of a problem with little flying bugs that look like Space Invaders. How do I get rid of them? I'm worried about what they might do to my crop of carnivorous plants.

Burn it to the ground. All of it.

undeadfish asked:

I've been gone since the early part of Cataclysm. Did I miss anything important? ;)

Pet battles, yo.
