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.

I've had myself convinced that my road trip to BlizzCon began on November 4. I checked my intinerary this morning and realized it starts November 2. There's a bit of panic happening, people. It's okay, though. I'll just let Taylor Swift's new album loop a few more times. That'll fix it.

Jalamenos asked:

How will gems and enchants work on WoD gear? Changing stats according to spec is great but I would really rather not have agility gems on my healing gear.



Gems and enchants only have secondary stats in Warlords of Draenor. You won't be able to gem agility at all, for example.

BlazeNor asked:

If Magni Bronzebeard comes back, what will happen to the political power in Ironforge?

He's dead. He's probably not coming back. It's kind of like asking what would happen in England if King George VI came back. He's dead! He isn't coming back! Granted, Azeroth operates on comic book rules, so who knows who is actually dead or not. We're going to an alternate universe specifically to see dead people again. If Magni came back, I don't think political power would change other than maybe him becoming a player in the Council. I don't think he'd ever get complete control back, nor would he want it. Magni represents one clan. Dwarven society has moved past that. All major clans are represented. His own daughter has a place in the Council. He wanted her back to begin with; he wouldn't try to strip her of her authority.

erondize asked:

So my computer is kind of crappy and doesn't handle the new models well, and I can't find the option to turn it off. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

You can find it under the Advanced category of your System options. There's an option listed as Show New Character Models. Untick that box to disable them.

Brian8 asked:

Maybe it's been asked, and while I probably already know the answer, is that all there is to the prelaunch event? It seems pretty lackluster especially comparing it to the WotLK and even Cataclysm prelaunch events.

Yep, that's all there is. This time around, I feel it isn't so much an "event" as an in-game notification that there's an expansion coming. "Welcome to patch 6.0! By the way, the Dark Portal opened ... again."

Digsu asked:

Is hunters being unable to loot mobs if their pets killed them alone "working as intended"? It's not really that big a deal, but there's just something annoying about not being able to loot low-level dungeon mobs that Fluffy killed by Blink Striking them literally faster than a speeding bullet/arrow/crossbow bolt.

That's intended, yes. The player must contribute to a kill to qualify for loot or anything like that. If that weren't the case, you could, for example, just AFK somewhere with a pet on aggressive and reap the rewards. You wouldn't even need to be at your keyboard, just check back every few minutes to loot everything.
