The Queue: The blame game

Alex Ziebart

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.

Today's Queue is going to be another short one. I blame Mike Sacco, because that's what I do.

Jack Spicer asked:

I've been running a lot of low-level dungeons using the dungeon finder lately, and I'm wondering about something. The rare item that you pull out of the goody bag you get from completing a random dungeon, the stats on the item seem random, but the type of item -- ring, pants, etc. -- seem pre-determined. Are they? If so, how? Any helpful links?

The rewards you get from the satchel are determined by level. Wowpedia says the following:

  • Level 25: Back / Waist
  • Level 35: Neck / Hands
  • Level 45: Shoulder / Finger
  • Level 55: Wrist / Feet
  • Level 60: Back / Waist
  • Level 64: Neck / Hands
  • Level 70: Shoulder / Finger
Dardle asked:

So what's the deal with engineering in Cataclysm? We're missing the most important part of the profession: bombs.

You know, I was confused about that, too. I switched to engineering at the tail end of Wrath because bombs are awesome, but Cataclysm doesn't have any? What is the deal? Where's my grenade-y goodness?

The answer lies in the High-Powered Bolt Gun. The tooltip suggests that it's a single-target ability like the Tazik Shocker tinker, but it isn't. It's a small, targeted AOE, just like the grenades. Instead of mass producing bombs every day, you can just farm up some Obsidium and turn it all into bolts. Be warned, however, that using the Tazik Shocker tinker will put your Bolt Gun on a short cooldown.

Kolonus asked:

Everyone knows how to resurrect Aeris and get her to rejoin their party, right?

You are a very cruel person.
