    I can recommend Frag Belt also. When stars aligned astronomically correctly and trinkets procced etc. tooltip showed over 60k! damage for grenade. Just macro /use 6 in your Arcane Shot or Glaive Toss for example. Targeting circle won't disappear even if you spam those abilities.

    boots backfire way too often , healing belt shares cd with pot, glove enchant puts on use trinkets on cd for the duration, so it can be annoying.

    Nice for PvE, the worst for rated PvP... non of the Engin perks work for Arenas o RBGs.

    The gizmos are nice thou, for PvW environments.

    If your engineer you're generally not meant to have an on-use trinket as BM.

    If you do, you use the higher agility proc trinket first then whatever else you have second. I also don't find it too bad. You don't want, say a haste proc during your BW because it will devalue the proc. If you have a haste on use trinket like the jade bandit figurine or the hawkmaster's talon, It'll only overlap with your synapse springs once then you will be fine throughout the fight.

    Engineering is simply the best raiding profession. Ever since I picked it up in Wrath, I've loved the parachute(now the glider <3) and nitro boost is fantastic for every day use.

    so to double check to there is no way to make the frag belt hit your target you have to use the clunky target thing?

    Don't upgrade it. Period. You only gain your primary stat and no secondary stats it's a waste of an upgrade and it is not bis even without the tier bonuses because of its low ilvl.

    Well, the PvE benefits isn't really coming from the head, it's mostly comming from the tinkers you can get.. Such as the ''Synapse Springs'' or the ''Spinal Healing Injector'' which is like a bad healthstone.

    Oh, and the parachute is actually pretty good as well. It's increasing the distance that you travel with disengage if you macro it. You could use a macro such as;

    #showtooltip Disengage
    /stopcasting
    /stopcasting
    /cast Disengage
    /use [CLOAK] Malevolent Gladiator's Cape of Prowess

    I'm fairly certain boots can't backfire during raid encounters. Later I'll do a search to find when it was patched in. (@ work right now)

    they certainly can backfire and give you the dot that damn near kills you.

    I have, loads of time. As a Rogue I could use Cloak of Shadows to get rid of the fuel leak damage but I've also died plenty of times in and outside raids because of it. The explosion however doesn't happen in raids anymore.

    Those are my gripes with Engineering as well. The glove tinker putting on-use trinkets on cooldown especially can be a big problem. It could be worse but it's annoying regardless.

    All in all if you can deal with these things Engineering is the best profession in terms of DPS. But it takes a little extra effort on your part. But even if you just macro the tinker with your signature shots it's going to provide a DPS increase. It's equal with other professions, it gets better the better you make use of it.

    Jeeves and Moll-E are fun extra things which are massive quality of life improvements of your character as a whole.

    So long as you're not using an on-use trinket, it's still one of the best PvE professions by a mile.

    If you are using an on-use trinket, though... well, I hope Blizzard changes that. It's absolutely stupid beyond belief that are own gear can potentially ruin our profession.

    With all respect I think that would be a very bad idea.

    PvE is my main focus in this game and I would trade my soul to avoid tinkers and trinkets putting eachother on a cooldown, but this would be gamebreaking in PvP. People are shouting all over the place how ridiculous burst damage is already. Imagine if everyone was able to stack yet another 2k stats on top of all the burst cooldowns they are already using. It would instantly make Engineering the must-have profession in PvP.

    Again mainly a PvEer here.

    worst part is if boots back fire during a heavy aoe phase makes it a bitch on healers though if your bm spirit heal ,and the personal 30% heal can help but 9time out of 10 it works perfect ,while i do like iron hawk ,i dont ussaly find my self taking much damage unless its a group wide aoe phase and i find the personal heal 30% 100% to pet is for me any how a oh shit button if healers are busy
