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.

I heard you say we were on the same street.

Celedrian asked:

Are all realms going to be merged or just the ones that need it? Because my realm is perfect just the way it is (unless you're horde).

Over time, the majority of realms will be merged with at least one other, according to Blizzard.

Mo_Betta_Mark asked:

Has any one else noticed the npc's playing hearthstone at the Shrine of Seven Stars right outside the doors? Took me awhile to figure out what it was, but they are definitely playing hearthstone.

Yeah! They were added in the most recent patch.

Ron2 asked:

Suppose your class is next in line for an epic quest chain like the one for warlocks. What cosmetic, novelty, or utility effect would you like it to award at the end?

I want my shaman to be able to use totems as weapons, even if it's just a set I can transmog. That's my ultimate shaman quest chain.

ScottLeyes asked:

Does anyone know how Guild XP works? I know it was changed to allow low-level chars to contribute XP at the same (or similar) rates as high-level chars, and i know that daily quests (at any level) contribute XP, whether the char gets normal XP or not.

My question is really how is Guild XP calculated? is it a % of the XP a character would normally get for a given quest? Is it a "one quest = XX experience" fixed amount?

Also, do XP gain buffs (Like the Darkmoon Carousel) also affect Guild Leveling?

(BTW, i am asking about actual GUILD XP here, not character reputation with their guild - I've been trying to figure out better ways to level a guild short of adding more characters to the roster)

Level-appropriate quests -- that is, ones that aren't grey to you -- give you 60k guild xp. Guild xp isn't affected by xp buffs, or anything else, really.
