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.

In the Pandarian justice system, the people are represented by two separate, yet equally important groups: the Shado-Pan, who investigate crimes, and also the Shado-Pan, who prosecute the offenders while being incredibly sanctimonious and annoying to every Horde and Alliance player they meet, forever. These are their stories.

(Thanks, Scott Leyes)

KaleilS asked:

What ever happened to that Warcraft movie teaser that was shown at Comic-con?

Don't expect it to see the light of day. It was apparently test footage as opposed to any kind of actual teaser or trailer. Maybe it'll be in the blu-ray special features.

RyanKomisarz asked:

watching both cinematics, Horde and Alliance of Garrosh's defeat was awesome. Just one thing, we saw all the Horde leaders gathered, but where were all the Alliance leaders at? You could make the argument that they were holding down the fort in Eastern Kingdoms, but....wouldn't that have applied to the Horde leaders to protect their capitals as well? Just wondering if there was any indication in game or out where they might be hiding.

All of the Alliance leaders but Greymane and Velen were there. You can see many of them in the cinematic, albeit briefly. I'm not shocked Velen wasn't there, but Genn Greymane passing up an opportunity to bury some orcs? Man.

JospehLockmyer asked:

Do we have any idea what happened to Y'shaarj's heart in the aftermath SoO?

It was drained of power when Garrosh used it. It's nothing but a dried-up husk now. There's even a model for it in that state!

JoshuaCurtis asked:

There's something that's always bothered me. In Halfhill, Farmer Yoon is called a "City Paw," suggesting that he comes from a decidedly more urban area. I realize that this is probably just flavor text, trying to suggest that he is clearly an ignorant outsider, but I don't get it. What "city" is he from? We know that it can't be the Vale - the twin shrines were not heavily populated until our arrival, and were closed off. And looking everywhere else in Pandaria, there is hardly anywhere that can be characterized as a city. can Farmer Yoon be a city paw if there are no cities?

He's from Dawn's Blossom, which I guess passes for a city in Pandaria.

hnajar asked:

So....any chance Jaina died in Theramore and what we've been dealing with is some sort of Legion demon or other assorted baddie? What if at the trial she helps him escape to Outland and there he starts his own OG horde: The Iron Horde. Long term bad guy potential. He has turned into quite the Richard

You know, I'm gonna go ahead and say it: I think the Wormtongue-y delivery of Jaina's "even now they plot against us" line in the trailer is the fault of whoever directed Laura Bailey. It could have been said a dozen different ways, from disappointed to fed up, but somehow this is the one that took. I don't think Jaina is going to turn villain, but she's undoubtedly unhappy with Varian right now.

As for Garrosh escaping, I mean, they left him alive for a reason, I'm sure. Whether that's a loose end to be tied up sooner rather than later is anyone's guess.

Ron2 asked:

I know there was some talk about it yesterday, but is it reasonably consistent that Timeless armor pieces drop according to the class that you're playing at the time? That was certainly my experience when I visited on my Mage yesterday; not counting quest rewards, I got 8 BoA tokens, 5 of which were cloth.

Anecdotally, you seem to have a higher chance of getting gear for the armor class of the character you're using. I've found way more leather on my rogue than on my shaman, and way more plate on my DK than on my rogue.

Bapo asked:

Question for dk's out there. When fighting Evermaw, do your runes and runic power just flip the heck out and become glitched?

I disabled all of my addons and still had this problem. /reload didn't work. Yes logging out works, kinda difficult to do mid combat though.

Any suggestions? Besides just auto attacking

It does seem to be bugged out. I have the same issue on my DK. I can't use runes at all at certain points in the fight, apparently when he paths through fatigue waters.

smartazjboy asked:

Would it be better if LFR went 10man? I feel like with 25man it's really easy to not do anything and get by, but also with more people it's easier for people to be assholes.

With 10man, everyone would probably have to actually do more than just autoattack, the group's smaller so there might not be trolls, and it might end up being a better overall experience. I've definitely had tons of bad LFR experiences, but 99% of my heroic dungeon experiences in MoP have been fine. I'm thinking if LFR is closer in size to the dungeons than 25man, it might be a better experience

LFR will likely never not be 25-man. It's 25-man specifically to accommodate as many people of each role as possible.
