The Queue: You've got time

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.

My partner and I finished Orange is the New Black on Netflix tonight, and man! What a great season of TV. But the problem with Netflix TV binging is that now we need to wait until next year for more of it ...

Zapwidget asked:

Simple question: Do you prefer big mounts or small mounts?

Most of the time I prefer small mounts so they don't obscure my view. I ride the pretty compact Rivendare's Deathcharger as my land mount even though I have many cooler/bigger land mounts. For flying mounts, I really appreciate the zippiness of my Lorewalkers disc, but ... that cloud serpent, though.

Eeta asked:

Do Queue writers have a sadistic side and put things in the queue to derail the comments on purpose just to make it difficult for the next writer?

They do if they're Adam.

flashryan2314 asked:

I've leveled a few monks now, and recently I've noticed two NPC's named Master Cheng at the Peak of Serenity when I go there for my EXP buff. One is a female Blood Elf level 60, and the other is a Pandaren level 20. What gives? Distant relatives?

Probably just a result of devs not cross-checking their Chinese-sounding NPC names with a database of other, already-used Chinese-sounding NPC names.

JordanPhillips asked:

If Dalaran moves, what happens to Dalaran in Northrend game content? A lot of Northend was designed around the presence of Dalaran... (quests, portals, etc) Will they just be simultaneously there, like Garrosh will still be in Nagrand?

Almost certainly. That's how it's been for every other situation like this in the game so far.

RikOsborne asked:

Something that just occurred to me: All these Kor'krons we're seeing now are supposed to be Blackrock orcs that Garrosh recruited to be loyal to him, right?

Just how many of those Blackrock orcs are there? I thought we Alliance blew the living crap out of them back in Redridge and Burning Steppes (okay, almost forgot that the Horde storyline in BS accomplishes the same goal)? The idea at the end of the Burning Steppes story is that we've crippled the Blackrocks so badly that they no longer even constitute a threat to freakin' Lakeshire.
So where did Garrosh find all these Blackrocks to become Kor'krons? Or are there actually only a (relatively) few of them? Between the guards in Orgrimmar and all the Kor'kron in N. Barrens, there sure seem to be a lot of them in-game.

I believe the Blackrocks went to Garrosh, not the other way around, because the Alliance effectively destroyed their infrastructure in Cataclysm questing and they're looking for blood. And remember that the NPCs we see out in the world aren't necessarily representative of their respective populations in "canon".

Kandorr asked:

How much of a difference is there between:
-Using a weapon you got from LK or Deathwing while leveling to the next cap
-Using a scaling weapon from Garrosh while leveling to the next cap
I seem to remember keeping whatever I used last xpack until replacing it at either a ring of blood type event pre-cap, or 5man H at cap.
What may I be missing, because I'm not seeing the big difference?
Maybe your lootspec won't come into play, and I might bonus roll an agility 1h for my alt rogue while killing Garrosh on my spriest?

Well, the raid weapons from LK and Deathwing don't scale in power as you level, so...yeah, there's a difference there. Not sure what the question is here.
