The Queue: Got to give in

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.

The new Warpaint album is out and it's really good.

JohnO asked:

If Blizzard were to do a redemption of any one orc leader in Draenor, who do you think it should be and why?

Specifically, I am talking about those that drank the Kool-Aid in pre-BC Draenor, but became a better person because he/she didn't drink the Kool-Aid in the new version of Draenor.

Ner'zhul, for sure. He's the only one who doesn't seem like a complete maniac. Gul'dan, now there's a dude who's just pure evil. Ner'zhul was a dope who just got in over his head and paid the price. Without the demon blood, maybe he has a chance. Given what little we know, I think I might be on to something?

CreepyShutin asked:

The WoW fanfiction forum seems to be thriving, enough that Sarah posted an article about her five favorites. So my Q4tQ is this: Is there any plan for that to be a regular thing, like Moviewatch? Featuring particularly noteworthy fanfictions on WoW Insider?

I don't think we have anything like that planned, but it's a pretty cool idea. I'll bring it up.

SteveJ asked:

What's to become of my expensive paperweight Reforge Mount vendor? A feature to be coming "Soon?" tm

The devs said they're considering other options like changing it to a transmog NPC, but no solid details yet.

DanielHudson asked:

Realistically what 4th spec would Death Knights or Warriors get? Or even Priests for that matter.

Death knights? Bring back blood DPS, man! I became a blood tank specifically because I didn't want to leave the tree behind when the changeover happened. I kinda miss it. Priests, I'm not sure. I'd like a battle-cleric thingy that let them tank. Realistically, though, we'll probably never see fourth specs beyond the one druids, which was really a necessity and not a "bonus".

helbich asked:

I am just getting back into the game after taking about 5 months off (mid August - January) and every time I log into my main I just feel overwhelmed and log right back off. I don't have a ton of time to play (2 hours every other day or so) but I want to get the most out of the time I do have instead of getting frustrated! Any suggestions for fighting this? What would you do?

Get thee to the Timeless Isle and grab all the chests you can! That should get you covered in terms of gear for a little while. The key when returning really is to focus on one thing at a time, or else you can get overwhelmed. Say "I want to get this particular item" or "I want to hit x item level" and set that as your goal, rather than going "THERE IS SO MUCH TO DO". Also remember that scenarios are there for a quick group-content fix.
