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.

Anybody else playing this and/or Final Fantasy X HD this weekend? I AM PLAYING BOTH.

Nurph asked:

With all the talk of the price of the 90 boost being so high, what do you think the possibility of it lowering once Warlords comes out? Is it possible the high price is simply temporary until the new game drops?

Tough question. On one hand, the price does seem high (to me, anyway). On the other hand, we said that about realm transfers, and those prices have never changed. I don't see the price going down, especially not right after launch. But I can't see the future.

Matthew_X59 asked:

Since WoD is going to costs an extra $10, from previous expansions, can the free level 90 really be considered free?

I mean, if we're getting down to brass tacks here, you're really getting the expansion free, aren't you? After all, the boost costs $60. But seriously, folks. Yes. Also, expansion costs haven't gone up for nearly a decade. They didn't even match inflation. It's okay for it to go up now. (And don't bring up Reaper of Souls -- I'd be shocked if it had as much manpower going into it as WoW does.)

Connelallison asked:

Are Shadowmoon and Frostfire exclusive to Alliance and Horde respectively or are both options for either faction?

Right now it looks like those zones are faction-exclusive, with the Horde starting in Frostfire and the Alliance in Shadowmoon, but we'll see for certain when the beta begins.

thebl4ckd0g asked:

I dunno if I'm hallucinating or remembering something that was supposedly going to be in Mists or in Warlords, but wasn't there supposed to be random rare vendors wandering around azeroth and outlands that sold random similar-to-legendary-models transmog-only weapons and items? Like there was one that gave a weapon similar to the warglaives model that you could transmog only with?

I could have sworn I remember some panel from Blizzcon at some point in the past few years that mentioned this...even saw a video of it. Unless it was in a dream or I was imagining it.

It wasn't a dream, but it was a Wowhead April Fool's joke.
