msadlerjr asked:

Unless things change, if 5.4 is suppose to be Ogrimmar Raid and Garrosh is the end boss for this expansion is probably not at least year away ....does that make sense? Do you think we won't kill Garrosh, he will go on the run and we chase him down with another Big Boss #2 for 5.6? Just seems a lot of time unless they plan on having expansion at end of this year. That in my opinion is way to quick for me to be forking out another $40+ lol

I can't really speculate on what goes down in the next expansion, but yes, you're right in that it's almost certainly not far away. We should expect an alpha/beta not long after BlizzCon and the expansion itself not more than 6 months later, though that estimate relies on 5.4 being released prior to BlizzCon, which may or may not happen.

transit13 asked:

I seem to recall that when a forsaken priest uses the light to heal others it causes the priest pain. The light hurts the forsaken.

Well now there are forsaken monks. How do monk heal spells effect the forsaken?

Good question. Worth noting here that monk healing isn't Light-based, it's herbal remedies and chi and imposition of willpower on the monk's behalf. It's a little up in the air whether all healing "hurts" the Forsaken or whether it's just Light-based healing. I would assume that if it does hurt, it hurts considerably less than the Light's "literally fire" healing.

PaulLloyd asked:

In Saturday's queue, Matt Rossi alluded to the notion that significant portions of 5.3's content will be temporary. I'm curious on why some people think this? Suring phasing allows it to remain forever?

Blizzard came out and said that not all the content would last in their official preview. I imagine it's because phasing a capital city for all level 90 players is a really bad long-term decision. It's best to think of this as a world event instead of a permanent content update.

Dest asked:

I've always loved the color auras that weapon enchants get. Do you think Blizz may someday make cosmetic ways to put those on our weapons? Say, put the mongoose enchant color on a velum on the AH, then you can throw that on a weapon to get the color.

I mean, anything's possible -- you're definitely going to be seeing more and more cosmetic options over time. That's the way the wind is blowing.
