I believe the point was your belief that a Tinker class would be inspired by the Engineering profession. That has been proven false numerous times. The Engineering profession is loosely based on the mechanical units and items from WC3. A tinker class would be based on the Tinker hero unit.And yeah, you know...the point is the fact that they got inspired from it.
If you can't comprehend that, then this discussion really needs to end here.
Actually that's the other point...... If the abilities are inspired by the Tinker hero, where are the inspired abilities? Rockets and other explosives come from the Goblin Sapper, the siege tanks, the Grypcopter bombs, and the Dwarven mortar team from WC3. The mechanical items you can craft come from the numerous mechanical items in WC3 like the mechanical critters that could be used to spy on your opponents. None of that is from the Tinker hero.Saying they don't share the same effect/name when other abilities from WC3 are is stupid, because you're comparing class-to-class transition, as opposed to class-to-profession transition. Can you fucking get it it's not the same
In short, the Tinker hero's abilities are non-existent in WoW. Allowing a fertile space to use it as a template for the 12th class.
