Every profession isn't equally as good for every class/spec.Originally Posted by Rilgon
It's been that way for a while now.
Well tbh i kinda understand people being a bit peeved at Engi as we were sorta promised changes to boost the profession.
Wont make me change my two engi's though for good or bad they both been Engi's since TBC. Is it fun? hell yeah it is fun, watching people in Kara yelling "LOL, OMFG, WTF" when i used a Goblin Rocket Launcher to pull a mob or maybe bombed a couple of pull's in Nexus Heroic for giggles. That's what engi is about, it's a fun profession. Do i get perk's?yeah both my pally's will be tanks (well one is the other is holy at the moment while i decide on a spec for 3.2 and whether to make her heavy on BV just for kicks).
I enjoy the profession thats not to say i wouldn't like to see it improve but meh if it doesn't it doesn't. I'm looking forward to the bomb belt and getting a nice 3s stun off the grenades aswell for kicks.
I'm a rogue engineer, have been since just before TBC, and the new engineering changes in the PTR make me very very happy.
The parachute cloak now was comparable (to enchanting) stats added to it (23 agility in my case).
The haste tinker is pretty awesome, for me the best hand enchant I can get (340 haste/12sec= ~68 haste passive). Pop it with my racial, SnD, BF...mmmmm.
Nitro boots: AWESOME. It's like another sprint which is very useful in a pinch in many boss fights to get away from something nasty and 24 crit rating And when it 'splodes....well hey, in the air qualifies as "away" doesn't it?
Jeeves: yes please.
Teleporter K3: about time.
Worm hole: Please hilariously drop me into an Alliance town...awesome.
AH in Dal: Put those delag-ray, i mean x-ray goggles on and it's a nice perk.
I'm not saying engin is perfect, but it has taken a step in the right direction and it looks like it's really shaping up.
As for prof stat boosts? Sure it's not quite there for min/maxing, but for my play style, engin is pretty awesome...and pretty damn close to what I want for stats. Granted I also have JC to pick up some MORE tasty stats, but I'm quite satisfied with the buffs engin is getting (plus the utility...nitro boots...again, so sweet).

Ah, I see you need to be level 80 to have fun.Originally Posted by Rilgon
Ah, I see you need to be level 450 engineering to have fun.
Yes, it's my opinion too that engineering has taken a dive for the worse. But that still doesn't mean you can't have fun with the profession. Try to do what 'Goon Squad' did without engineering - and sure as hell, that is fun.Reflecting a mage's AP/POM/Pyro and one-shotting him was fun. Gnomish Shrink Raying Ragnaros was fun. Stealing an Emerald Dragon of Nightmare by using my Mind Control Cap on the horde guild's MT was fun. Nothing in Wrath is even remotely CLOSE to fun. Oh look, I can make a rabbit... that just sits there! I can... oh wait that's the only remotely "fun" schematic in Wrath.
It does exist, you just don't agree with it being fun.Point out this "fun" to me, because it doesn't fucking exist and I want to know what you're smoking.
I thought the patch notes also said somthing about the head enchant for engineerers, so you chould mind controll ppl and got 40stam+ ?
TBH, I really like cookies.
True enough. Comparing the definitions of people that seek to maximize themselves in raid dps, to those who seek to PvP all the time, and to those just looking for a good time with engineering might as well be comparing unrelated things. So it is a bit silly when people call each other out just because their definitions differ.Originally Posted by Awkardemic
However, I am more on the side of maxing my raid dps, so does anyone know for sure if engineering does or does not equal the 40 itemization points as other professions will be in 3.2?
Engineering has NEVER maximised raid dps as a profesion. There was always somthing better. Dont expect it to ever do so.Originally Posted by ArashikageClan
When people say "pls" just because its shorter then "please", I feel totally justified to say "No" just because its shorter then "Yes".
Problem with engineering is it got gutted with BC (thank you arenas) and they are far too careful in balancing it.engineering may give the worst stat bonuses in game compared to other professions, but who cares? it's by far the most fun profession, and after all, isn't that what games are actually about?
He is right though. Dropping your char for another toon because class X is better than class Y is one thing; learning another profession is trivial.Reroll to another profession.
Typical MMO-C troll logic, why am I not surprised?
I think you misunderstood me. I am more on the side of maxing my raid dps, but that doesn't mean I don't like having the benefit of engineering in other instances. Regardless, that doesn't really answer the question I originally posed. So, anyone have that info?Originally Posted by TwistedPower
edit: Nevermind found it. Thanks.
I use my cloak A LOT in raiding, it mitigates several bosses damaging knockbacks and saves mana on the healers. Vezax: If I'm stupid enough to get caught in a shadow crash I save a little damageOriginally Posted by goldworld
Razor: When he knocks you into the air
Flame Leviathan: I am always a demolisher gunner so I use my cloak to make the transit to the ground faster(aka I click off my current parachute from the encounter and use my own to speed myself up via gravity)
Not bad uses for a non mage/priest
