Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) is answering all kinds of questions today!
Man, Warlords of Draenor has one of the best soundtracks out of all of the games. If you didn't pick up the Collector's Edition, you can still get the soundtrack from iTunes. I totally recommend it.
Q4tQ: Do you think we should run through actual raids with our followers as healers/DPS/tanks? We would have a chance of getting loot for ourselves and ilvl specific armour/weapon tokens for our followers on the same reset cycle as normal raid save
I think this is a cool idea, but not for current level raids. However, it'd be fun to go to old content with my followers at my side. You don't necessarily need them, but they'd be fun to have along, you know? Alternatively, have a mission with a single current-content boss, and you and the followers go take them on. Rewards aren't raid gear for you(There are more than enough opportunities to get raid gear currently), but gear and items for your followers. Could be fun, who knows? Love to see a system like Dragon Age's tactical combat system thrown into the mix for it.
OK, so I'm collecting Avocado Stones for Khadgar. At the current drop rate from LFR, I expect to be done some time in May. Is this the last phase, or shall I prepare for another upcoming grindfest?
He's going to need some spices for the guacamole he's making. Really though, you should expect the legendary chain to likely be expansion-long, just like the one we saw in Mists. I imagine we'll be collecting items from Blackrock Foundry when we get there.
well first, tomorrow's my birthday so yay for me :) real question though; if you get profession buildings that you don't have the profession for can you still make things connected to that profession? this might sound like a dumb question, but I swear I've read something about it before and I don't have any profession buildings that I don't have said profession...
Happy birthday! Yes, in fact, you can make items from that profession even if you haven't actually learned it yourself. However, you're a little limited -- you cannot make certain upgrade items, and profession-specific pets and mounts. In addition, since you don't have that profession learned, you don't have the daily cooldown. As an engineer, my engineering building pumps out Gearspring Parts with Work Orders. I also have a daily cooldown spell that I can make additional Gearspring Parts with. Since I collect the parts more quickly, I can make stuff like the engineering goggles faster than someone who has the building, but doesn't have the profession learned. Those are really the only drawbacks, though -- I'm thinking about putting in an enchanting building for myself, even though I don't actually have enchanting at all, just because it'll give me access to the basic enchants and allow me to disenchant items as well.
What do people find the most useful in the Garrisons, now that many have started to gear up and got what they need to get started?
At the moment, I think the Salvage Yard is probably my favorite building, because I get bonus stuff from follower missions, and I send my followers out on missions pretty regularly. You can get transmog sets that look like the ones on the character creation screen -- but you can also get a variety of other green, blue, and purple gear, some of which is ridiculously valuable for transmog. I got a Blade of Wizardry the other day, that's been my best find so far. It makes garrison missions a really reliable source of gold.
@ChaosInHyrule asked via Twitter:
As youth, Vol'jin asked Zalazane to be tested by the Loa in the "forests of First Home." Where is that?
That was on the original islands that the Darkspear called home, before they joined the Horde. Thrall came across the islands when he was traveling from the Eastern Kingdoms to Kalimdor in Warcraft III. He helped out the trolls, offered them a place in the Horde, they agreed to follow him to Kalimdor, and the rest is history. As for the original islands, it's up in the air what happened to them -- they might have been affected by the Cataclysm and simply got swallowed up by the ocean.
