I dont wanna start a QQ thread but anyone else feel that the homogenizing of giving every profession a form of a self enchant is kinda taking away from idea of enchanting?
Vanilla - enchanters were the only way to get enchants on your gear asides from head and leg slot available from ZG rep or the Librams, or Naxx for shoulder enchants / AD rep for FR / NR / SR gear.
TBC - LW and Tailors gained the ability to do leg enchants (Very happy about this one, getting ZG enchants was a bit of a pain in the ass originally) And head enchants went to various faction reps, enchanting gets ring self enchants
WOTLK - Every profession you can shake a stick at has their own set of enchants, and hell some of them are better stat wise that taking enchanting itself.
I love the idea of some enchants for professions
BS adding gem sockets, especially the waist slot, and weapon slot
Engineering doing your own whimsical enchants
Tailoring doing cloak enchants that are improved versions of what enchanters can do
but after looking over LW bracer enchant and Inscriptions shoulders, I'm asking myself, "why are other professions getting better self enchants then enchanters do themselves?"
