    Mounts and pets were cool. glove enchant was good. Goggles were great until something better came along. Mote extractor? Everything drops motes now...

    Stabbycat 80 Rogue - Juggrnaught 80 DK - Dimwhit 80 Lock - Pembrook 80 Drood - Bakhmar 71 War - Baakmar 71 Mage - Wagyu 71 Hunter -- and that's just Lothar Horde!!

    Yea, it all seems useless :P Funny thing is, I never used the boots, I use Engineering for the other factors other than an Arena advantage. I hope MORE PEOPLE Drop Engineering, so I am the only one to mine Deconstructor and Leviathan for some nice eternals/titansteel bars.
    As a healer the rocket gloves are useless to me and the haste is too situational to warrant me using that over flat spell power. I already have troll racial berserking for the 'o shi' I need faster healing.

    Extracting motes is alright but if I wanted to make money it'd be better if I picked up herbalism. Its a perk.

    The roflcopter is nice for pushing me closer to the 100 mount achievement but it doesn't do anything special. Its not faster than other mounts (its slower than my Gladiator mount so I never use it), its a perk.

    Making the new bikes doesn't really mean anything. If a guildmate asked for one I'd make it. Its not BoP, if it were it'd be a perk.

    Repair bots are nice I suppose but I never make them. Traveler's Mount does it and I don't have to farm the mats.

    Healing/mana injectors and ammo boxes are not BoP. If they were that would be a bonus. But they aren't. You don't have to be an engineer to use them; a hunter with JC/LW can get the best enchants / gems from those professions AND use the best bullets made by someone else.

    I guess that's why I like it.

    Hand Enchant is only the best for a very select few classes. Unfortunately haste is a weak stat for alot of folks. If it had been crit...

    Extract motes? No point anymore. They made it so easy to get them that its rarely even bothered with.

    Mounts? really? Blizz gives out mounts like candy. Hell tailors can make mounts at this point. I'm sure future patches will give BS Stone horses or some such later.

    Repair bots? Yeah.. let me teleport to the repair NPC at the start of Uld real quick. Or hit the guy in the town right outside of naxx. No farming no muss no fuss.

    Injectors? One potion a fight... and its something thats countered by simply having bag space to spare. WOW! Huge advatage!

    Sure Engineering sucks, but did you guys even read the front page?

    They're planning stuff, chill.

    What will they add that people will get tired of after 2 days now?

    At least my Engineering mounts still count towards 100 mounts after I picked up JC.

    New goggles? Better enchant/tinker things?

    I'm assuming you meant "What will they add that people won't get tired of?"

    Gee, I wish my ring enchants could be resisted (lightning trinkit) only to be followed by a 3k glove enchant (pyro rockets) wile I was being bursted in a stun. But you're right, no stealth detect on goggles?! HOW DARE THEY!

    OP is retarded. i have no doubt this person is the type to reroll toons with every change and jump on every bandwagon that comes along.

    Re: 3.1.2 RIP Engineering

    I read this as another complaint from someone who had an unfair advantage in arenas taken away.

    Sure, Engineering doesn't have much to offer as far as endgame stuff is concerned. That's what happens when new content comes out. 3.2 won't just be welcome back engineering, it will be welcome back BS, JC, Eng, Alch, etc. There will probably be new recipes for a lot of things.

    Most of the professions that offer gear of any kind have maybe one or two items that end up being BiS for any class. Otherwise, the gear is basically starter 80 stuff to get you going until you get the gear you need from your endgame content of choice (PvP or PvE).

    If by "the best hand enchant" you mean something that is hindered by and hinders on-use trinkets, plus is only about 15 DPS better than an Enchanter-provided enchant...

    Yes, being able to extract motes and gain less eternals per hour than straight-up farming elementals sucks.

    Making choppers that full well should've been Engineer-only for fucking Jewelcrafters sucks hard, yes.

    I don't know of any Engineers that still use their helicopter. Hell, even I don't.

    Your guild doesn't have at least one person with the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth? lol

    omg an item usable by anyone that saves three bag slots, PROFESSION IS SAVED

    omg an item usable by only one class, PROFESSION IS SAVED


    You're a fucking idiot.

    So Engineering's back to it's old, useless self. Of course.

    After awhile, you'd think people would begin to get numb from Blizzard's bad decisions.

    Honestly, if I didn't have so many nearly-impossible-to-replace schematics, I'd drop Engineering like the worthless pile of crap it is. But I've got 2/3 of the MC schematics, almost all of the pre-BC world drop schematics, and all of the BC rare-drop schematics. Too much time and effort invested to let it go just because the balancing team at Blizzard are a bunch of PVP-minded fucktards.
