The Queue: Untouched

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.

Yesterday was "load up music you listened to in 2007 on Spotify" day. Here's a relic from my not-so-distant past.

BlackSeal asked:

I've always felt the biggest disappointment of Cata (which I think many would agree was not Blizzards biggest expansion success) was the large reuse of already existing assets in the game when it came to locations and bosses/skins/models. (especially boss models). It really came across to me as if they didn't have the time or money to put into creating new assets for the game.

Pandaria I've largely enjoyed being that it's a whole new world and culture to see and discover along with many unique creatures and models and architecture.

Do you worry they are in danger of repeating this with WoD? Especially considering we are going to what is basically Outland once again, with an obviously completely similar map and set of locations along with the fact that I have even read of them redoing UBRS/Possibly LBRS? Do you believe we about to be delivered "Cata 2" in these regards? Its got me a little worried!

Good question. I wouldn't worry, though. A lot of the creatures we saw in TBC straight-up didn't exist on Draenor prior to the calamity. There were no naga, no demons, no lost ones, no broken, the arakkoa looked different, etc. We'll be seeing a lot of orcs and draenei, for sure, but also lots of new or remodeled faces.

solidus asked:

How significant of an achievement is it to have obtained all rhe currently obtainable legendary items on one account? I can't find anything online and want to figure if I am one of the first or very few (my own version of the Insane but it didn't give me a title :( ).

I think it's a great personal achievement! You're definitely not the first, though. Probably not even the hundredth. Don't let it get to you.

Puntable1 asked:

Will the item level of our gear change after the squish? Will my cloak still say item level 600 or will it have a lower number?

The item levels should remain the same; just the stats will change. This is, of course, subject to change too.

MTA asked:

I'm starting to fully understand squish but have one question left. Before, I could solo level 70-80 dungeons and even some raids with my level 85, will I still be able to do that or do I have to hit max level (100) before I can go to do those instances?

Your ability to solo will be unaffected. Your relative power will remain the same as before, just the numbers all around will be smaller (including boss HP/damage).
