The Queue: Okay, okay, fine

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.

By request: Roy Batty.

AeroCross asked:

Now that we are getting new character models (someday soon, I hope, perhaps on 6.0?), do you think we'll be getting every model (including Pandaren) included? We're talking mobs, bosses, and critters for every expansion. Do you think world models / textures will be included as well? (Trees, mountains, platforms in outlands, etc.)

No, absolutely not. The pandaren are brand new -- there's no way they'll receive an upgrade in the foreseeable future. As for the rest of the world, it's unlikely; there were some graphical updates to geography in Cataclysm, but that was also kind of the focus of Cataclysm. As much as I'd love a full graphical overhaul, it'll probably never happen. We'll have to be happy with the new race models. And definitely expect the first batch in 6.0.

ScottLeyes asked:

We've already heard that Stolen Oil, Stone, Lumber and Meat will turn grey and be vendorable after the patch drops, but has anyone heard what will happen to the Latent Kor'kron gear? is it just useless crap? Should i be trying to dump it on the AH this weekend?

The items will still be usable in the event that you have a Radical Mojo lying around, but you won't have any way of getting new Radical Mojos. I'd dump the stuff.

PurityKnights asked:

I'm not sure why you think The Dark Below is certain to be a hoax. 2 months to Blizzcon and still no trademark registration for the new expansion.

Blizzard may be playing a cat and mouse game trying to make people think The Dark Below is a hoak when it could be real.

It's a hoax, and not a red herring by Blizzard, or anything like that. Somebody on the internet filled out the form to troll millions of people. You can believe me or you can wait until BlizzCon, but I'm right either way. I know it's fun to speculate because Blizzard hasn't thrown us a bone and some other site hasn't leaked a bunch of info, seriously: whatever the next expansion is, it ain't The Dark Below.

ThomasDabbs asked:

With the Siege of Org LFR, will we have to complete the two previous tiers to unlock it? If so, that will be hell for new alts.

Nope, that wasn't even the case for Throne of Thunder, if I remember correctly. You just need the appropriate item level.
