    Some people collect tips when they drop it. There's an engi on my server that always drops his and does a "/2 Bling down in VoS!" And I always give him 20g everytime I use his

    Blingtron offers very little benefit is comparison to say jeeves but it's most likely because it's supposed to be a fun item rather than a chance for profit.
    Lol not QQ at all, im a BS/miner i take advantage of free chanting mats even though it isnt fully fair.

    Don't think of Engineering as a profession...think of it as a lifestyle.

    Well blingtron hands out some party costumes for free, and he looks awesome.
    And the cost wasn't that "Huge", just some living steel and SoH is basically free >_>

    The only people who seem to benefit from Bling's wealth are the random people even without engineering who can just get extra gold or loot for free and have the same chance at something nice as people who spend on Bling. TBH it seems really unfair and i would like to suggest, that if you own a Bling you at least have a +10% for something good to drop, since you did the work and spend on it.

    I realise the drop chance in general has been upped, but still think owners should benefit more.
    Step one: go to org.
    Step two: in trade, announce "BLINGTRON GOING DOWN IN FRONT OF VOH AH. TIPS APPRECIATED."
    Step three: Strip naked /dance.
    Step four: go back to being afk.

    He isn't broken. You now only get 1 present per account by design.

    Blingtron is fun. He's a bonus, he's interesting, he's different. He creates something to talk about, helps generate a little bit of community. Sure, most of the time you'll get crap. But sometimes you'll get something that vendors for 200 gold, or perhaps you may even get an engineering mount out of it!

    The bonus that an engineer gets is that they can be absolutely certain they'll see a Blingtron every single day. Anyone else has to either bug an Engineer, or hope they spot one at some point that day. Sometimes you'll see about 50 per day; sometimes you won't see one at all. Depends on how high population the server is.

    Personally, I made one on my Engineer because he's fun. I like being able to give other people gifts, it's nice. I didn't really do it for myself, and honestly going into making Blingtron with a 'me me me' attitude probably isn't the right way to go about it.

    I see no real reason to change it, in all honesty. But hey, if you're really bothered, just summon your Blingtron at the bottom of Vashj'ir. Nobody else can use it then!
    Both the enchanters and the engineers are right. They spend money (quite a lot of it) and others get the benefits. That's horrible design.

    How did it cost 4k to make? I made mine for like....free. I cant think of any mats for the thing that cost that much.

    Put down your Blingtron in a place where all of your alts can get to it - make your money back in a fraction of the time.

    Gotta say, I never thought I would see an Engineer bring this up. I expect it from Enchanters but not from an Engineer. It cost me 1500 to make my Blingtron (I had most of the mats on me) and within a month, I made that back. I had a few of the 200g selling items. Plus, we get to look snazzy for an hour after talking to him. WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT?!?!?!? Look at it this way... A good chunk of our Engineering items fail. Take the rocket boots for example... They fail all the freaking time for me. You can think of the Blingtron not giving the Engineer any extra perks as an extension of that. We didn't program him well enough. Besides, who cares if other people benefit from it just as much as the maker does. He is a fun thing to have and think of how excited you will be when something of value comes from him.

    Also, about the enchanting thing... I have found a new way to abuse that. Well, it's new to me... Just the other day. I was in a party with a chanter. He was in Kara and I was out at Dominion Point killing things. A couple of greens dropped and I got to DE them because he was in the group. I love it. Saves me time and makes me giggle all at once.

    It really depends on the sever economy and what mats you happen to have on hand.

    For example. The Living Steel was 400ish on my server and I didn't have any nor a way to make it at the time... If you have no access to the mats yourself and your server economy is like ours... It's easily that much to make it.

    So True I leveled engineering on an alt and still kicking mself in the arse for not dropping enchanting to do it on my main.
    Wargen/warrior/engineer/blacksmith, the thought alone makes my mouth water.

    Might not be the most profitable profession but just their is a ton of very useful self perks that in my mind makes it the best profession hands down.

    No, that's horrible thinking and poor mentality.

    On your part.

    Ah, yea I suppose if you rushed to make one in the first week or two living steel could have been pricey. I have an alchemist and I make living steel every day. I've actually had several 5 procs (soooo lucky) so I usually have 8-10 bars on me.
