The Queue: Murmur of appreciation
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!

Murmur is still one of my favorite bosses from any dungeon ever, solely for the fact that his sound files are so unique, so weird, and strangely satisfying. Plus, he's essentially an elemental lord of sound, which is a really strange concept -- in a land of demons and dragons and giants and other assorted things that can kill you, a creature that can do so with the sheer force of sound is just a really neat idea. The video above isn't exactly the best video of the fight, but you can hear the strange sounds he makes really clearly.

MartinLongpre asked:

What is the big lore question that we don't have an answer to yet that bugs you the most?

What are the naaru? Where exactly did they come from? But honestly if that question were ever answered, I think it would be revealing too much. The mystery is half the fun, after all -- and it does make for some interesting tinfoil-hat lore articles.
Chrth asked:

Q4TQ: Will Bro Gator Stones drop from Blackrock Foundry bosses?

We don't really know for sure at this point, but my initial response is that it's doubtful, as the stones are specifically ogre-related. It wouldn't make logical sense for the orcs to be carrying them around. Could be wrong, however -- we'll have to wait and see on that one.

JeffLaBowski asked:

What dungeon or raid do you love that most people hate? I ran Nexus a lot in Wrath and most people didn't like it for one reason or another. I also love Gnomeregan and Old Hillsbrad.

I really loved Blackrock Depths -- the original version. Most people hated running that place because it took so incredibly long to do, but it was great to sneak through as a rogue -- it was the original rogue playground, an entire underground city with all kind of mobs to pickpocket and a functional bar in the middle. I still love that place, even today.

jonasbelford asked:

Making a techknight/engineer-knight transmog on my paladin. Anyone got any plate shoulder suggestions?

Without knowing what kind of color scheme you're working with, it's hard to make any suggestions. However, usually when I'm looking for particular colors of gear, or some kind of visual theme, I just head to Icy Veins and look at their transmog lists -- they show all the various models available. Here's a model list for paladin plate shoulders with photos of pretty much every model you can get. Good luck!

Zapwidget asked:

Q4tQ: What do you do with your excess Draenic Stone?

Currently I have it stashed in my reagent bank. I haven't really found anything else to do with it yet, but I'm sort of hoping we'll see some additional use for the things eventually. They didn't really start to pile up until I had the level 3 mine created, and now I can't seem to get rid of them fast enough!

merkavar asked:

Q4TQ: Another pvp question. why can you only collect bones from killing people in PVP in ashran and drenor? why not BGs etc. as long as they are 90+ and give honour i cant see why you shouldn't get bones.

Because the bones are specifically for your garrison and a Warlords of Draenor feature. So it just makes sense that you obtain those items via Warlords of Draenor content. Picking a plant or mining a node on Azeroth or Outland isn't going to give you a Draenic Stone or Draenic Seed, either -- it's kind of the same concept. They want to make sure that new expansion content, and materials for the new expansion features all come from the same place, the new expansion.

taco.heuts asked:

Question: I've killed the spawn of Murmur, but now I want the big guy back! Will we be able to do battle once more with him, but now at full power? Seems like a great weapon for rthe Iron Horde to try and release when we kick their behinds for a couple of patches!

Well that's the thing, though -- when you kill the Echo of Murmur, that's exactly what the mobs there are trying to do, summon Murmur to wreak havoc. Only you interrupt that ritual and murder the Echo of Murmur to keep him from showing up. While it would theoretically be cool (let's face it, it would be really, really cool, I loved Murmur in Burning Crusade) to have him pop up, you kind of negated any chance of that happening.

But hey, you got a cool toy out of the deal!
