The Queue: The Timewalkers

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.

This is super cool! Blizzard added some of the Timewalker characters I created for the TCG into the MMO. I think this might be a first. Wonder how and if the faction will be further implemented into the game. My babies!

solitha asked:

What do you think of the new Timeless Isle BOAs when considering the repeated stance of Blizzard that we should play toons to gear them?

I mean, not to put too fine a point on it, but this is hardly the first expansion where Blizzard implemented a catch-up mechanic for alts in the final raiding tier. I think it's not only fine, it's to be expected!

Eliza asked:

So, as I'm reading another WoW novel, I notice that tauren males are referred to as "bulls", but females are just..."females". Do tauren women really take that much offense to the word "cow"? I mean, they are cows. What's the big deal.

"Cow" is a pretty well-known insult for women. If I had to hazard a guess, that's why.

Bulliwyfthetank asked:

Where are the bones of Archimonde in Hyjal? It always bothered me that we killed him in the instance, but now there is nothing, and at some point, I want to say that I have seen them somewhere? But now they are gone.

If you were the night elves, would you leave intact the skeleton of the being that destroyed your immortality and nearly destroyed your world? It seems pretty reasonable that they'd take them down.

Ronald asked:

Did they up ToT LFR drop rates? I went 3 for 3 in Pinnacle last night. Shoulders, Head, Chest.

Don't worry! For every piece of loot you got, someone went from their seventh Lei Shen kill with no loot to their eighth Lei Shen kill with no loot. By "someone" I mean "me." Thanks a lot, by the way.

Revets asked:

With the recent Tweet from Kosak who here believes that the "changes" to Org after 5.4 will be an entire new 5.5 patch or essentially the 6.0 pre-patch. Additionally, do you believe if there are any sweeping changes there will be the same treatment done to SW to clean up the scars from cata and potentially build new extensions where the park was?

I believe we'll see the changes to Orgrimmar in the expansion pre-patch, and I highly doubt we'll see any Stormwind changes. Of course, I'd love to see Stormwind changes -- Gilnean district? Something done with the crater where the Park was? I don't anticipate it, though.
