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.

45,000 people are currently trying to play Pokemon Red simultaneously using a chat parser. The results are about what you'd expect.

pedroboteon asked:

WIth the news that the PvP Season is ending could that be a sign that:

1) Patch 5.4.7 is about to drop.

2) WoD will be available for pre-purchase very very soon™?

I think 1) and 2) are both true, actually!

morvackthemountmimic asked:

I had a good question but I can't remember what it was. Don't you hate that?

I do.

ddnxtn asked:

Since we're going back to Draenor for WoD, what will the names of the "new" materials for the gathering professions be?

Expect to see Savage Something-or-Other and Draenic Something-Or-Other. The main BC metal was fel iron, but without the fel it'd just be, well, "iron", so probably not that. More than likely it'll all be stuff we haven't heard of before, a la Wrath.

john.h.fee asked:

Do you think the challenge mode mounts will become BoA once the season ends?

The devs said that the mounts would remain character-specific after the season ends.

btlcryct asked:

We know gear in WoD will change primary stats when changing specs. Will this apply to heirlooms too? Meaning, for example, a druid only needs to buy one set of heirlooms and if they're in Guardian or Feral it'll be agility gear, but if they switch specs to Boomkin or Resto it changes to int/spirit gear automatically. I have some free time and was thinking of farming JP to fill in any heirlooms I don't have, but don't want to waste time getting different specced gear if it will basically be just cloth/leather/mail/plate for WoD, with the stats changing based on your current spec.

As far as we know, the main-stat changes will only occur with gear created for WoD. Heirlooms should be unaffected by it, so you'll probably want to buy whatever sets of heirlooms you'd need for the specs you'll want to play.

Whiteout asked:

Is Iron Horde outfitted Gronn the new Fel Reaver? It simply will not be a trip to pre-destruction Outland (Draenor) without something large, bloodthirsty, and impossibly stealthy sneaking up on distracted questers to leave them as a messy stain on the ground.

Almost certainly. I'm excited! Durn the Hungerer was a great experience, and now we get to deal with an iron-plated, Horde-carrying Durn-alike.
