The Queue: All about the deeps


Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Adam Holisky (@adamholisky) will be your host today.

Here's my question for the queue today: what's your DPS at in 5-man dungeons?

I know that a lot of people don't care what their DPS is in those cases, and they really shouldn't. As long as the boss dies in a 5-man that's good enough. But nonetheless, I'm interested to know in general.

NickVanWaes asked:

what are the chances we'll see an updated version of the dungeon journal to display loot for WotLK, TBC and Classic raids? Would come in handy for mog runs, I think.

That's a great idea, and I have to believe it's in Blizzard's quality-of-life improvement list. But that list is pretty darn big for a game as huge as WoW, and I doubt that updating it is any sort of priority with a new expansion deep into development.

That said, for those that want this, I highly recommend, nay demand, that you install Atlas Loot. Really it's the best loot addon out there, and it is an absolutely essential component for WoW players to have.

Jeff asked:

Not sure if this was ever addressed in the Queue here, do you think tabards will get a graphic update in Warlords? It's going to look kind of odd putting some of them on next to the new models when they arrive. All thoughts appreciated.

I haven't heard anything about them getting "moar pixels" or what not, but overall we know that Blizzard is trying to take care of clipping problems on cloaks, so I'd be optimistic that the same technology would apply to tabards and the strange stuff that happens with legs, etc...

Theblk asked:

how does every other DPS enjoy the 1 hour queue times for Siege lately?

I don't recognize it when I'm playing my hunter. It goes by pretty fast since I'm doing other things, including scenarios. And even though it says "1 Hour" or "45 Minutes" -- I find it rarely is that long. Most of the time I'm in a run after about 25 minutes in the queue.

Catriona asked:

what is your least favourite 5 man, not because of its story or mechanics, but how players react/play through it?

Example: my worst dungeon is DM Tribute, because nobody knows what a tribute run is anymore and they will just kill all the guards for sub-par loot, and it infuriates me that I am part of a dying (or dead) era.

The new Scarlet dungeons anger me when I get them. I really can't stand it when people weave their way through the zone to hit the boss; and it's not like the path is at all the same, either. People have their route, and of course, that route is the only correct one that can never be changed and is correct above all other routes.

And god forbid you die and run back (like a good DPS) and take a wrong turn in a path that you've never been on before. I got kicked for that the other day, and it was my only "mistake" during the entire run. Bitter much? You bet'cha (don'tcha know).
