    Glider, Blingtron, 2 mounts, Thermo-anvil, probably more I'm missing, aren't useful?

    Bar the Thermo Anvil which can be usefull at times. what is usefull about the Blingtron?
    2 mount so what JC got 5 mounts most people have around 100 mounts already 2 Eng mounts dose not make them usfull its not like they are 2 seater mounts they are just another cosmetic thing

    Infact its more like 1 mount as you can only learn one of them as one is goblin and one is gnome eng

    You could have added Wormhole Generator Pandaria its useless compared to the wrath version you might as well take a mage portal or the portal in SW or even just a have HS set to Shrin which then sets you up for anywhere you need to go.

    I would not change my engineering for anything. I find it very useful and in fact, it's one of the (only) professions I'd consider on multiple characters. Nothing beats having access to bank & repair and mailbox anywhere. They are so not tied to a certain expansion...

    Mounts are always welcome, glider is awesome, thermo anvil is useful, blingtron disappoints me every time... So overall yes, I think engineering is quite useful.

    I'd looooooove jeeves (or his relative) to be able to reforge though, that is a welcome idea!

    thermal anvil has come in so handy. i didnt think it would, but i seem to use them quite a bit. a portable reforger would be really cool though.
    Too cool for a signature

    a wormhole bot to be able to summon players into the raid (just like lock coffin).. that'd be more useful than portable reforger IMHO

    Would be an idea, if Engineering would be a class and not a prof.
    Most people do not realize the talent and skill it requires to be in a top guild. Many of you think its only about time invested, but that couldn't be further from the truth.

    Why it has to be a class skill? Engineers already bring portable repairs for everyone, portable mailboxes for everyone, bank acces for other engineers, they have an item that ressurects, why can't they get a (prolly long CD) one that can be used to summon people? 10 man raids would love it, 25 mans would prolly piss on that anyway because they tend to have locks.

    I like the sound of that with mass summon out the window it would come in very handy specially with no flying in the new zone and if you dont have a lock and you need to get someone into the raid its a long run back

    One more pet and one 2-seat mount was announced in 5.2, is that enough?

    Are you knocking the usefulness of your glider? Probably one of the most awesome things I've seen engineers have in a long time. Of course, your definition of "useful" as well as mine are highly subjective at this point.

    The Engineering equivalent to the JC gems, is the Synapse Springs. The goggles and cogwheels are similar to the Alchemy trinket, they are just meant as a starter item.

    Blingtron shouldve been a reforge and a repair bot IMHO

  17. #17
    They should come up with a Jeeves but with a repair discount.... And either link the rep to the guild

    You can buy a repair mount its called Traveler's Tundra Mammoth whats your point? in wrath you had a repair mount and still we had Jeeves

    Why dose it need to be a class? Engineers already make portals like mages do and thats as much of a class ability as summoning is to warlocks. At the end of the day its a utility and thats what engineers do. lots of buffs and ability's are covered in game by different class's or pets so you don't have to bring a certain class a engineer item to make it possible to summon people inside the raid etc like warlocks can would make sense.

    A new pet is not useful its nice and its cosmetic and pet collectors will love it but from a engineers point of view its not useful on the other hand the 2 seater mount is useful you can give people lifts to somewhere you are all going when they need to go afk or like what ive found mine most useful for at the min giving newly dinged lvl 90 guild members a lift from were they ding to the shrine so they can get there pandaria flying lol

    Nooo its awsome ive had a lot of fun messing around with it. BuT in terms of eg saving you from falling to your death etc the parachute did that already but i much prefer the Glider. Its would have been like giving us another jeeves that just looked different but still just repaired are gear.

    Combooticus has hit the nail on the head Blingtron should have been the reforge bot instead its a complete waste of space.

    Especially with those cogwheels now, which sell for a pretty penny on my realm at least. Engineering is great .

    I think Engineering is one of the FEW..(i guess other than inscription) that allows a max lvl toon to still use older enchants...and it still be incredibly useful. So I',m ok with all of it =)
