The Queue: Kitty and a can

Anne Stickney

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) likes kitties.

No no no, kitty. Soda is not for kitties. Or pop, if that's what you call it. Let's just say you should probably avoid the entire spectrum of canned carbonated beverages and leave it at that.

Fizzl asked:

Actual Q4TQ: assuming we don't get any leaks before Blizzcon, and assuming TDB isn't actually a thing, is this the first time a new expansion has gone (largely) un-leaked?

Well there's that whole possible trademark thing that was dug up yesterday, but ... I think this is probably the longest we've gone, yes. Keep in mind I wasn't paying too much attention to these things when The Burning Crusade was announced, I was busy happily playing vanilla instead. I don't recall if information was found on that beforehand or not. But I'm pretty certain that every other expansion prior to this one, we had some sort of big clue about where we were going and what we were going to be doing. We haven't seen that, yet. Which is pretty awesome if you ask me, I love surprises!

mattprendo asked:

I thought I read a few Q's ago that any alt can ride a cloud serpent now without obtaining the rep for it. I tried last night and I couldn't. Is this a glitch, 6.0 thing or just bad information?

That was incorrect information. You still need to be exalted with Order of the Cloud Serpent to ride a cloud serpent, and that has not been made account-wide. However! If you're looking to get your alts reputation with the Order, you can farm Huolon on the Timeless Isle not just for the gorgeous mount, but also for Quivering Firestorm Eggs. They are bind-on-account and can be turned in for a whopping chunk of reputation with the Order -- 1,000 reputation with no bonuses, 2000 reputation a pop if you've bought the Grand Commendation of the Order of the Cloud Serpent.

Alexey asked:

Q4TQ. How many Bloody Coins do you have?

Not a single one. PvP is not my thing. However, there seem to be quite a few people roaming the Isle and happily murdering each other.

@Adamdm_ asked via Twitter:

Did my eyes decieve me, or do Lor'themar, Sylvanas, and mage guy all just leave once they kill Galakras?

Look, they killed the dragon. That's what they were there to do, man. Sheesh.

No, really -- I believe they take off because they were simply opening the way for your raid to get through to Vol'jin and Baine. They do, however, pop up at a later point -- they have to. They're in the end cinematic for the raid, after all!

@andrefmt asked via Twitter:

assuming at the moment I don't have any friends on my server, what's the best way to find a friendly guild for me?

Generally speaking, I find that checking the forums for whatever realm you happen to be on will have at least a few different guilds posting information and looking for members. I don't advise asking in trade chat, because people tend to be ... rude, sometimes. I like looking at the realm forums mainly because I can get a good feel for people in the guild based on their posting style. And whatever you do, don't take the blind invites offered by that silly spamming mod that people have installed. You never know what you're going to get, and they give you no idea of what the guild is actually like, other than the fact that it is apparently being run by someone who thinks it's okay to spam people with random guild invites out of the blue.

@MPickett57 asked via Twitter:

"Heroes of The Storm" next wow expansion or the next hit single of The Level 90 Elite Tauren Chieften?

That would make for one heck of a music video. Honestly, I don't know what it is -- it could be another fake just like The Dark Below, for all we know right now.

@kremlincardinal asked:

Are the Draenei ever going to become relevant again? I've always liked them and think they're due for some good story action.

Well, let's see. Wrathion has been yammering on and on and on about some upcoming Second Coming of the Burning Legion that we ought to be worried about. The Burning Legion has a really strong connection with the draenei, story-wise. So thematically, if we really are looking at the return of the Burning Legion, it stands to reason we'll see more draenei lore -- which would be fantastic, because I totally love the draenei and they really do need more screen time.

ScottLeyes asked:

If the Queue is written in the middle of the forest when no one is around, does anyone read the comments?

Yes. Haven't you heard? Hellscream's eyes are everywhere.
