    No, it’s a Hunter with a mechanical pet. In order for it to be a Tinker, it needs to be using Tinker abilities. Of which, the Hunter class has none, and has never had any.

    None of the abilities of the Tinker are in the profession either.

    Also Hunters currently can perform Wailing Arrow and Withering Fire. Two abilities from Sylvanas HotS.

    Except when the items give them class abilities. Such is the case with Sylvanas’ bow and Quiver. Further, only the Hunter class can use those abilities.

    as I said before

    Cluster Rockets (Bombards an area with rockets, stunning enemy land units for 1 second and damaging nearby enemy units.) = https://wowpedia.fandom.com/wiki/Goblin_Rocket_Launcher (Fire a powerful rocket at the enemy that does 960 to 1440 damage and stuns them for 3 sec. This thing has quite a kick though... (2 Min Cooldown))

    Engineering Upgrade (Passive) = https://www.wowhead.com/engineering

    Robo-Goblin (Ultimate) (The Tinker becomes mechanical, rendering him immune to stun, most offensive spells, and several beneficial spells.) = https://www.wowhead.com/spell=20594/stoneform , https://www.wowhead.com/item=158709/...ished-shredder , https://www.wowhead.com/spell=139192/sky-golem (Removes all harmful Poison, Disease, Curse, Magic, and Bleed effects and reduces all physical damage taken by 10% for 8 sec. In the Racial Traits category.)

    Pocket Factory is the only not in game as an ability used by another race or item and would be impossible to balance

    Just because you lack the imagination doesn't mean they're just engineers as a class.
    1) Load the amount of weight I would deadlift onto the bench
    2) Unrack
    3) Crank out 15 reps
    4) Be ashamed of constantly skipping leg day

    LoL! See how ridiculously dishonest this is? The Tinker's abilities are Pocket Factory, Engineering Upgrade, Cluster Rockets, Robo Goblin, Rock-it turret, Deth Lazor, Salvager, Grav-O-Bomb 3000. None of those are listed anywhere in your list, and some of those aren't even abilities, they're items. I mean you're using Stone Form as a substitute for an ability that allows the Tinker to pilot a mech with enhanced weapons.

    Meanwhile, the Dark Ranger's abilities are Black Arrow, Drain Life, Silence, Charm, Wailing Arrow, Haunting Wave, and Withering Fire.
    Hunters had Black Arrow for years. They currently have Wailing Arrow and Withering Fire. They don't have Drain Life and Silence because those abilities are in other classes. Not that it matters because Hunters get leech from their pets and Wailing Arrow is an AoE silence with damage!

    So to conclude, Engineering contains none of the Tinker's abilities, and Hunters can exclusively use two of the Dark Ranger's and had their signature ability in their toolbox for years. If you want to continue to argue in bad faith, be my guest.

    I love how people use the shredder mounts and sky golem to dismiss tinkers and conveniently forget that there's an overwhelming amount of dragon mounts and a legendary that turns you into a dragon.

    Kindra the same way how some people dismiss everything to try to shoe horn a profession in to a class.

    Uh no. Engineering Upgrade boosts the Tinker's movement speed and enhances its abilities. It's a passive ability, not a profession.



    That's an item. This is the ability;
    https://www.wowhead.com/spell=136297/cluster-rocket

    It even has the correct name.


    Please explain how a Dwarf turning into stone is the same as a Goblin or Gnome inside a mech suit.

    FFS.....

    The Dark Ranger items I'm talking about are the Dark Ranger's Hood, Rae'shalare, and Dark Ranger's Quiver.

    You're talking about some random engineering items from a profession, while I'm talking about the literal bow and quiver that Sylvanas uses that grants ONE class in the game actual Dark Ranger abilities. Can you seriously not tell the difference?

    The lore treats Tinkers as synonymous with Engineer. We have various NPCs called this, including trainers and vendors. We have multiple references to Tinkers within the Engineering profession itself, including the name of various body upgrades called 'Tinkers'. We have the Tinkers mentioned by name in the Engineering Works garrison as well:

    The Engineering Works produces a host of useful gizmos and parts for the intrepid tinkerer, and also creates wondrous mechanical devices.


    All in all, Tinkers/Tinkerers are another name for Engineers. That's how WoW has been treating the name.

    100% we even have Tinker kits in game for Engineering. Engineers are tinkers and is the in game profession even tho Teriz has been saying they are coming every x pac since 2012

    That type of wordplay is no different than the word "brewmaster", which was used for vendors, a profession, various NPCs who pretty much just got drunk, and a title. The important thing that was missing in all of that were the Brewmaster's abilities from WC3. We got those abilities with the Monk class.

    I don't recall any Monk vendors or professions. Engineering has covered the Tinker since day 1

    We don't have a Brewmaster class. We have a Monk class.

    So if you're talking about Tinker identity being part of another thing, well it's already part of Engineering.


    And abilities are kinda meaningless. We're 16+ years into WoW and Mages still don't have Mass Teleport. Not all WC3 abilities need to be translated into WoW.

    Except that is a double standard because the Monk class houses the Brewmaster's abilities. Engineering does not house the Tinker's abilities.

    And abilities are kinda meaningless.
    Uh no. Abilities define the class. If you don't have the abilities, you don't have the class.

    No, it's a DPS tool, hence why it could kill enemies and buildings in WC3 and HotS. You can't kill anything in a mount.

    Does the same thing as cluster rockets

    Cluster Rockets (Bombards an area with rockets, stunning enemy land units for 1 second and damaging nearby enemy units.) = https://wowpedia.fandom.com/wiki/Goblin_Rocket_Launcher (Fire a powerful rocket at the enemy that does 960 to 1440 damage and stuns them for 3 sec.

    its wow not Wc3 or hots and again in wow it is a mount not a dps tool
