I only care about Engineering. As a PvP Warrior, Engineering is pretty darn crappy. I haven't specialized because WotLK is just around the corner and there's no sense in committing myself before knowing if Goblin is going to turn into the "mandatory" Warrior spec.Furthermore, the +Stamina on the Rocket Launcher (really the only good Engineering trinket for a Warrior) is easily found elsewhere, and a Madness card grants me buffs without a cooldown. The helmets are alright, but S4 is better than Furious Gizmatic (and I'll assume the other T1 Engineering helms), lacking only the stealth detection. And since *most* other semi-casuals like myself won't ever see the inside of Sunwell, the upgrade patterns for 5000g (when you can find them) are irrelevant.I've been saving greens forever and a day to disenchant, but everytime I consider leveling an alt Enchanter to 35, I think about the plethora of greens and blues I can currently (and soon in WotLK) disenchant if I make my main an Enchanter. It would also let me drop Mining and pick up Herbalism to stock up for WotLK's new profession (and hey, free enchants).Tell me about Engineering! It is without a doubt the most useless and least profitable profession unless you're a glutton for having trinkets misfire while sitting on a personal balance of 3.7g. The Mote Extractor is garbage! Tell me I will be rich and/or powerful, or be merciful and inform me of Engineering's planned continuing descent into crapdom and let me drop it.

The mote extractor is NOT garbage. It gives you free motes at virtually no cost, provided you just go out looking for them. In that regard, it's no more garbage than say, the mining pick is if you never go out and mine.

Sorry.. I have farmed TONS of primals with the mote extractor... far more then I could ever farming the elementals that drop them... hmmm... lets see... 2-3 gas pockets per primal vs a random drop that maybe you see 1 in 3 kills on a given elemental....And sure, you can get 'better stamina' from other places than the Goblin Rocket Launcher, but as it is one of the only single range pulls for Pallys, it is a great item. Add to that a nice supply of bombs give Pallys and Warrior a way to do AOE damage when it calls for it... and do I need to remind you of a little thing called a repairbot? And then there are all the cool little things like the robots, pets, and mounts.So it doesn't work for you.. stop QQing and drop it. It works great for the rest of us.
