The Queue: Short stuff

Alex Ziebart

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Alex Ziebart will be your host today.

Yesterday's edition of The Queue went up a wee bit late. As a result, today's is a wee bit light. Maybe we can get back on course for tomorrow, eh?

Zombina asked:

I'm curious about the crafting materials in WoD. Will we have versions of fel iron ore and netherweave cloth and whatever the herbs were (i can't remember...some kinda weed)? If this has been brought up anywhere could someone link cuz I missed it.

As mentioned in the comments yesterday, anything with a "fel" prefix likely came about after the Burning Legion had its way with Draenor. The minerals, herbs, and so forth could quite easily be different in Warlords of Draenor because in that timeline, the world hasn't faced its numerous catastrophes that shaped the planet into Outland.

Benjamin Seeberger asked:

Do you think Blizzard will offer any kind of deal to go with Warlords of Draenor in connection with either Hearthstone's release or Heroes of the Storm, like offering free packs in Hearthstone or a set of purchasable heroes in Storm with a purchase of Warlords?

I seriously doubt they'd ever give bonuses the equivalent of free cash for their other games. At most, I could see them giving a unique card or hero skin, much like we see mounts and pets in World of Warcraft.

bluefer20 asked:

if we boost a Level 60 character to 90 what level do the professions on that character have to be to get the profession boost to 600?

Limited information has been released on that aspect of the level boost. As far as we know, there's no minimum required tradeskill level, only that you need to be level 60 to get the tradeskill boost. We're not even sure it boosts you straight to 600, though we certainly hope so.
