The Queue: Savage


Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Adam Holisky (@adamholisky) will be your host today.

Today is going to be a savage day, one way or another.

Just wait.

Logan asked:

Do you still think WoD will be released in September?

I don't. I'll eat my hat over it to be fair. I think the game needs a lot more polishing and Blizzard doesn't seem to have all the mechanics worked out. That said, I don't want to toss out a prediction -- it's just going to be released later than what we all want. It could have been released a month ago and it'd been just the right time.

I suspect the savageness will come from what the release date actually is.

Apat asked:

Is Blizzard going to make any changes regarding to xmog items and the space they take off from our bags? Toy box, quest items not occupying bag slots, etc are helping a whole lot, but it isnt enough imo. I'd like items just to appear when wanting to transmog it.

They are. Blizzard wanted to get something done for WoD release, but it's taking a bit more work. They haven't revealed exactly what they're planning, but there's a lot of love for the Diablo 3 style of transmog, so I wouldn't be at all surprised to see a system like that. If you want to check out what it feels like, grab GuildWars 2, they have a transmog system that would be nearly perfect for WoW (except you're forced to do a microtransaction to transmog, more or less).

Djay asked:

I know Cloud Serpent Riding is going to become account wide in WoD but what about normal Pandaria riding? Will the min level be removed and the cost reduced?

As was commented in the article yesterday, there are reports that people are able to fly as soon as they enter Pandaria at level 85. I'd test this, but the beta isn't working for me at the moment. I'd trust a bunch of reports of this, however.

Maro asked:

Will blizzard ever do anything for low level battlegrounds? Do you think a dev ever made a new character and tried it out? Are low level battlegrounds the reason why we see so many characters with blindfolds?

I'm not sure that they need to do anything with them. The low-level battlegrounds have already had everyone's level normalized (bumped up to 19, 29, 39, etc...), and there's a healthy amount of players to run them as they're leveling alts. To me it's something nice to do during the normal grind. I'm curious if others have had bad experiences that necessitate a change.
