    Engineering fun

    After so many years engineering have proven to be the best, most fun profession in the game. From mindcontrolling that elite in hillsbrad in vanilla, shooting rocket launchers at people or simply running away from someone with 300% speed and throwing grenades, can make you fell off your chair laughing.

    However, I was wondering what else could engineering be used for in order to have fun ? Many of you might remember that rogue movie where he used Explosive sheeps in low-level zones and gnomes just blew up by hitting it - this got me thinking.

    How about adding a new "trap" to engineering - an "one-shot" TNT that can be attached to herbs, dead animals and ore on the ground? Imagine - you see a frost lotus in wintergrasp and you plant it and hide somewhere - someone comes by to loot it - KABOOM - then you go again and plant it and wait for the next victim. Or you go by a titanium vein and "wire it up" (:

    You could also add an pushback effect that will shoot you in the air just for the lolz . What do you, fellow engineers and MMOs think about this idea and what could be some pros/cons of it

    I work with what I got.

    A fellow engineer friend and I invented a game called Nagrand Super Ultra Golf.
    Rocket boots + Parachute cloak + islands in Nagrand + trying not to die
    We added more fun by making specific costumes and doing it wasted.

    After never wanting to actually level engineering, and now starting to on an alt rogue I'm leveling up, this gives me more incentive to go work on it.

    Oh my god, best idea ever.

    We should get that belt thingy super spies have.. you know that where you shoot your belt buckle in the air and the rope will just drag you up?

    Would be funny..

    Should work in arena ofc

    And you can attach it to that hunter and rope after him when he disengages. Or attach it to the ground when that DK grips you.. would be nice

    I really want a Rocket Pack Shirt like the ICC Airship Battle. It pretty much says "I'm a Engineer". Also, give it a 1 min cooldown or something where you can fly around. Disabled in Arena. As for exploiting with it, when Cata comes out, everything you can use it to exploit to, can be flown to.

    I love Engineering
    I have some alts with it, different servers, and it's always fun.
    One of them it was a lvl 29 hunter twink (haters, stfu). One day in WSG a Rogue was killing me badly and God bless the Sheep. I lol'd so hard that day and the Rogue must have said "WTF just happened?" Yeah, I killed him with something like 1% hp left

    im desperate and most likely stupid as well, checked wowhead, wowiki, thottbot and cant figure out where u get the runic mana potion injector kit thingy at.. anyone can help me as to where i may acquire the recipe?

    and the idea of rigging ores and flowers sounds fun like hell, bit unfair to 1-shot, but maybe if it wudnt 1 shot but rather turn them into a critter for 3 secs or smthng, just for the laugh ^^

    Engineering is the most enjoyable profession by far. And it actually has some VERY good DPS (and even healing, for the haste!) applications. Sure you can't really make much money solely off engineering, but that's far outweighed by, say, the look on everybody's face when your rocket boots malfunction, sending you rocketing over the WG wall to start sabotaging the cannons from within.

    The injector kit is now, unfortunately, redundant, as potions now stack to 20 on their own.

    But if someone believes a magical bearded man rewards you with eternal life in the clouds as long as you drink the magical whine-blood of a long dead carpenter in church, don't you dare argue with his beliefs.

    Absolutely not! When you're an engineer and you take a drink from the mana injector kit you'll get 25% more mana from it than from a normal mana potion.
