The Queue: Goats yelling like humans

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Mike Sacco will be your host today.

Another supercut of my favorite thing: goats yelling like humans.

MusedMoose asked:

Engineering-based question: what do we use to blow up, erm, OPEN lockboxes in this expansion? I know I've had someone open a few of mine like that, but my main's an engineer and I can't find that item for the life of me. Even Wowhead doesn't have anything listed to open boxes with that level of locks. Help, please? @_@

This expansion's lock-exploder is the Locksmith's Powderkeg.

eyhkeyhk asked:

Just finished the Operation: Shieldwall Revered quest where you do the Sha event in the Shrine of Seven Stars. Here, Anduin is against weaponizing the Sha, yet I'm standing there with a Sha-touched weapon. What gives?

Well, it's not like he gave it to you. Besides, just because the weapons were touched by the Sha doesn't mean they are the Sha.

CharlesGoyim asked:

I had collected so many gems from prospecting Ghost Iron that I stopped for several weeks. Yesterday, with my supply dwindling, I prospected a passel of ore. Not a single blue quality gem, not one. Was this a stroke of horrible luck or has JC taken a stealth nerf?'

It's just rotten luck. There's been no change to prospecting chances as far as I'm aware.

dumbass asked:

When do the next expansion names usually get copyrighted for wow? Wondering, how long till the spoler for our next xpac.

Usually we hear about the trademarking a few months before BlizzCon. That's how it was with the last few expansions.

evoxpisces asked:

I'm a bit of a pet battle noob....where exactly do you get those stones that upgrade a pet to rare quality? I've been battling my butt off, trainers and critters alike, and I have yet to encounter one of those stones. Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong places?

You can get them randomly from high-level pet battles in the wild or from the reward bags you get by defeating the master trainers on each continent.
