Engineering is an odd profession, such as mimicking the abilities and talents of various classes. However, Engineering seems to fit best with PvP and less in PvE. I think a character needs to decide where they plan to spend most of their time before going down this every expensive avenue.

Engineering isn't that expensive any more, certainly not compared to other crafting professions. It's probably about 1000g to get to 350 engineering, which is the real sweet spot anyway.For PvE, it works great for a prot paladin; the helm is far better than anything you'll get until T6 and will likely last you for, well, almost ever. The +45 stam trinkets aren't too bad either. It certainly works better than anything else.Engineering used to be not useful for PvE and too expensive. Both things are false now.

Hmm, 1000 gold sounds like a might fine guess. Anyone have any real numbers?I suppose by your account, Engineering doesn't work great for any Paladin not Prot? I'm sure the helm is great, but I would hardly justify this a sound reason to spend 1000 gold into leveling Engineering to the max? Some might share your opinion, though. The trinkets aren't that important anymore, not with the decent trinkets in Karazhan and/or through Heroic Badges.I've talked with quite a few Engineers, and they still swear that this profession is best used with a PvP oriented character. Sure, Blizzard has made a point to add some nifty PvE bells and whistles, but aside from those few points, one needs to take in the whole gambit of usefulness and decide if this profession is really worth the investment (and having to stick with).
