The Queue: Tony Stark's wardrobe

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.

Jeez, think Iron Man has enough alternate costumes in Marvel Heroes? The Starboost armor on the left side is pretty cool, though. (Brief note: I have been playing said game lately and it is way, way better than it was at launch. Consider trying it out. Big thumbs up from me, your old pal Mike.)

Selethor asked:

Do we know how much the Blood Elves have recovered since Arthas came through and destroyed everything, and will we ever see the sunwell's effects on the elves?

The blood elf population is still small, but it is recovering since the end of Burning Crusade. I don't think we have any solid figures on exactly how much it's recovered, but generally once a population is less worried about surviving the day, they get to more mundane stuff like baby-makin'. As for the Sunwell's effects, one can assume it's already begun to work its, well, magic. The nature of the fel green eye glow the blood elves currently have is kind of ambiguous; like the green skin of the orcs, it may never go away.

JeffLaBowski asked:

What class do you least like going up 1v1 and why?

I don't hate going up against most classes, just the ones that have stuns, CCs, fears, DoTs, and/or the ability to heal themselves or others.

FuzzyBunny61 asked:

Was anyone else disconcerted to find out in the Alliance quest where Sully is telling his story, it takes Amber (a sniper) two shots to kill each of the Orcs so that Sully can make his way back to camp?

Actually, you can get headshots on the orcs and kill them in one hit. It's just pretty tough to see their heads, much less aim at them.

Zombina asked:

Question about the new warchief...Does anyone (players) get to actually see Vol'jin in the warchief's seat? I don't raid so I was wondering after you capture Garrosh if some sort of phasing happens that allows you to see the new guy in charge.

He'll likely be in place for WoD, but he's not there right now. Garrosh is still in the Warchief spot in Orgrimmar, despite his defeat. It's just one of those things.

Drindaar_Lightkeeper asked:

Any word yet on the updated transmog system for WoW? Wasn't it supposed to be changed to the kind of system Diablo III has? You know, get the weapon/armor once and its yours to use on any character and you don't actually need to hold on to the item. That very well might be one of the coolest additions in WoD.

Cory Stockton said it's something they're working on, but didn't want to promise for WoD launch at BlizzCon. It's something they really want to do, though.
