    1. Is there a way to get to Legion Dalaran without starting Legion intro quest - i.e., will flying directly above Karazhan phase me into Legion Dalaran? And if so, will the prerequisite quest(s) get flagged as completed?
    2. Can F2P accounts still unlock Chromie Time using a class trial character after yesterday's patch (source)?
    3. If John, for example, who doesn't have Chromie Time unlocked groups with Jane who does, can Jane put John into Burning Crusade timeline so that he can queue for Burning Crusade dungeons by himself?
    4. If I open a Crate of Battlefield Goods with auto loot disabled, can I choose to only loot Mark of Honor, for example, and then delete the crate (so that I don't collect appearances of the green gear)?
    5. If I queue for a random battleground and then win, is it still possible to win something other than a Crate of Battlefield Goods like a blue gear, for example? If so, will the appearance of the blue gear automatically appear in my appearance tab? I remember seeing people who automatically received loot (and no crate) after winning a random battleground so this is reassuring.
    6. If I'm in a dungeon group and disconnect at the final boss and the group kills it while I'm not logged in, will I still receive its loot via mail but not earn the achievement for completing the dungeon?

    For posterity, I'll update the post with other odd questions you all may have and their relevant answers from the good Samaritans willing to help.

    no, intro quests take a couple minutes and then you can skip them on every other toon on the account. no reason to not do them

    if you try to create a class trial on a f2p account, it starts as level 1

    no

    yea, i suppose but... why?

    blue gear comes from crates and is an automatic upgrade

    Thanks for confirming.

    How about on a veteran account? I saw that a class trial starts at level 47 or 48. Can I just level it to 50? Sorry for the troubles: I don't have a machine to install WoW at the moment.

    Thanks. I'm trying to limit what all gets added into my appearance tab.

    yep, same thing
    this is the game registering the reward from their previous game. If you win a crate and dont open it until the next game, it will register its contents as a reward for your current game.

    Thanks for the info! If I were to delete the crate from a previous win, will the game not register the rewards from the previous crate?

    no, because you never received the loot.

    even if you get it blue, it will be green in the appearance tab wont it? Maybe he just hates the colour green.

    I get the first question re getting to legion dal. Maybe you want to retain access to the pre-scenario buff tables.

    But I really dont get the rest of the questions or the intent behind them.

    they start like pretty normal questions with a degree of reasonability even if you could reason your way to then answer but then takes a sharp turn towards the tinfoil hat around 4 for no apperant reason.

    You can access those later at any time, i think in Dragynslayer’s dungeon hero guide there’s a description on how to do that.

    To be fair, I would guess its because some ppl hate when they have to scroll trough a lot of transmog pages when they want to switch between two or three prefered setups,or just not be tempted to change an already pre-existing set. Shave a few seconds while farming destiny or socketed WoD drops.

    Edit: I just saw question 6, and OP, my brother in Christ, what did you smoke and do you have more?

    The only thing I'm starting to put together is "Best geared toon possible with the lowest completion/achievement score possible"

    Wouldn't that just mean level a character to 20 and mail it ilvl28 greens? That's, what, 20 achievement points total?

    Yeah but that isn't, like, odd enough :thonkW:

    Q7: is there a way to disconnect, while dead, near the mailbox in Darnassus and have the items enter my inventory without opening the mailbox? Perhaps my monitor and mouse can also be disconnected

    We do have a "Mark as favorite" option?

    Edit: oh shit, we do, and we can also select the source items that have that apperance, what the fuck? How long has this been here?

    No offense taken! I don't want shit clothes in my wardrobe.

    This is correct. I'd like to keep my achievement score as low as possible while having good gear.

    This thread has made me realize I am much weirder than I thought I was.
