    Cogwheels?

    Im a little confused about where Cogwheels can be used? Does anybody have any information about them?

  2. #2
    AFAIK there are only chogwheel slots in engineering head items, not sure though.

  3. #3
    They can be used only on engineering helms

    Cogwheels are socketable items that have stats equal to Jewelcrafting-only gems, and they fit only into cogwheel sockets. Currrently the only items with cogwheel sockets are the engineering goggles.

    That seems so...lackluster.

    wow...that makes it so not useful. the current epic engineering helm is no where close to the same class as many of the drops and vendor purchased ones. i dont see that extra socket pushing it above its current ranking to make it worthwhile. i guess its time to change to JC.

    Cause Engineering totally needed more buffs right? -.-

    The cogwheel is like 120+ of a stat compared to a JC gem being 67 for the unique(3) styles It's a way of making the engineering helm "on par" with other helmets since they dont have sub stats on them
    A hero of war, yeah that's what I'll be. And when I come home, they'll be damn proud of me

    If Blizzard offers Helm Upgrades then yes, Cogwheels will be amazing, if not, gg

    I like the cogwheels. Hopefully there will be higher level helm patterns dropping in raids.

    it won't blizzard didn't like that you needed to level professions to get BiS-gear. the sunwell goggles were fucking awesome though...

    Yea if they don't have upgrade helms at some point then I'll probably drop engineering. Or let engies put the cogwheels on other helms.

    I am actually excited about Cogwheels for two reasons.

    1) The stats on them put them on par with the first tier of raiding gear.

    2) The fact that they created something new for engineering goggles makes me think that they will either offer new goggle recipes each major content patch (and the cogwheels will boost them up) or there will be new cogwheels each major content patch and they will boost the goggles up to the next tier gear level.

    For example:

    When Cata releases, the cogwheels are +120 to a secondary stat.

    With patch 4.04 or whatever the next major content patch is, maybe the cogwheels will be +180 or something like that to make the goggles still useable.

    So isnt it cogwheels an aditional enchant like blacksmith glove socket? and we can use engineer "gems" called cogwheels to socket them into those?

    Or is it those specific crafted helms that already have a cogwheel with them? if that is so then it fails completly, i might aswel just change to another proffession since rocket boots are useless and glove haste got nerfed.

    oil leak-kills you

    malfunction-kills your raid

    mass aoe taunt on malfunction-kills you and possibly the raid

    because the current haste on gloves effect is considered better then the cata physical dps glove tinker.

    ya, engineering is looking SO strong in cata

    You mean like Tailoring, BS, and LW with their pattern drops in raid instances?

    it might not be fail if they can do 2 things.

    provide upgrades every tier (and hardmodes) for new goggles.

    make those goggles with the cogwheels BiS for that tier.

    Last time I checked, those BS, Tailoring and LW patterns made BoE items, so it didn't require a player to lvl any of those professions to obtain them.

    Although I do hope they'll make cogwheels useful after tier 11.

    I think a way to make sure it isn't junk after second wave of tier would be if they added something like a tinker to your helm to make them look like goggles. So then you could keep upgrading your gear as different tiers come out but still look good in your OMFGoggles. They could also have a tinker schematic to add cogwheels same as BS can add sockets and such. Just and idea though. Please Blizzard make one of those true so my guildys don't laugh at me for keeping engineering into another xpac!!
