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.

Well, it's ten years late, but I saw the Postal Service perform last night, and it was everything I hoped for. They even got Jenny Lewis to perform with them! And Big Freedia opened for them! And Postal Service came out and twerked! Never thought I'd utter those words!

DavidMcRae asked:

how happy are you for blizzard to add scifi elements to the game? and where would u feel comfortable setting limits to it?

WoW is already basically a sci-fi game. It's the highest of high fantasy. Burning Crusade had spaceships, for Pete's sake. Setting BC as WoW's sci-fi upper limit seems to have worked just fine so far.

Dobablo asked:

Should transmog be banned in PvP? Doing so could allow PvE people mog how they like?

Blizzard abandoned the idea that PvP silhouettes were important long ago, so I don't see any reason why they'd go back on it now. Besides, the way that gear works now, it's not like seeing what gear someone is actually wearing carries some huge disadvantage. You know your opponent is likely wearing the same PvP gear everyone else is wearing, with the same advantages and disadvantages.

Aubrey asked:

Do you think Draenei have fur? I've seen of them, and some treat them like they have fine fur, others treat it more like regular skin that just happens to end in a hoof. I've never seen anything lorewise that says either way, but I know Trolls are in the same boat as they're said to have fine fur but most people don't know/depict them with it.

Some official art depicts them with fine fur on the legs, but I think they're probably mostly like humans -- a little fuzz here and there, more on guys than gals, and more on the legs for sure.

Shiny164 asked:

When gear is scaled down, is each piece scaled individually, or the whole set together?

For example, if I was in half 450 gear and half 496 gear, and it was scaled down to 463, which of the following would I end up with?

(450+463)/2 = 456.5

min(((450+496)/2), 463) = min(473,463) = 463

The first one; otherwise, your 450 gear is scaling up!
