The Queue: I'm Onett!

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.

Is that how you pronounce Onett? Or is it "oh-net"?

RyanKomisarz asked:

Do you think there will be a representation of Taunka or Hozen into Orgrimmar or another major Horde city ever? We gone through quests to induct both into the Horde, or were they only brought in simply for the sake of a military force to get a helping hand on the continent they were found?

Good question. I'd say it's pretty unlikely that we'll see any sign of them past their respective expansions, even though at least the taunka are technically real members of the Horde. Until they become playable, don't expect to see them in Orgrimmar.

Selethor asked:

When we get new models, are they fixing the clipping issues that they have, like Nelf and Belf ears and eyebrows?

During the art panel at BlizzCon, the artists said that clipping is one of the main things they're trying to fix with the new models. Whether or not they'll fix the specific instances of clipping you're talking about is anyone's guess, though.

Lauri asked:

What happened to Clash of Champions? Haven't heard from it for a while and entry for it on BGG has been removed.

The last word we heard from Cryptozoic, if I remember correctly, was that moving forward on it was all up to Blizzard. Given how long it's been since we've heard anything at all about the game, I think it's safe to say that Blizzard opted not to move forward with it at all.

Kohsumi asked:

Is it possible the WoD beta period will be shorter than previous expansions? Maybe more like 3.5 or 4 months instead of 5 to 6?

Anything's possible, but we can't really say with any level of certainty until we get our hands on the beta.

msadlerjr asked:

Will the Druid animal forms receive an update as the same upgrade as the class upgrades?

Given how recently the druid forms received an upgrade, I'd say it's unlikely, at least in the very near future. I'm sure the artists want to, though!

Toy asked:

are the male models finally going to have at least a mannequin-like bump "down there" ? I'm using fairly tight transmogs on a few of my male toons, and they feel very... inadequate, especially the night elves.

The new models we've seen don't appear to have a bulge, so probably not. My condolences.
