Can we get a little more coverage on the state of engineering in wrath? Having maxed it, I find the only benefit is being one of many people that can craft the tanking gun/hog however it's frustrating to know there is no lateral improvement for my profession.Look at the differences between learned engineering recipes not learned from the trainer (i.e. only the motorcycle and scrapbot) and all recipes not learned from a trainer (228 recipes that I can find... 225 minus the engineering motorcycles and tailoring book).Why are we engineers left out even more this expansion? Least we had a scope off Attuman in BC)

Engineers can ‘skin’ mechanical mobs, which gives a chance at Volatile Blasting Triggers, used in explosives and bullets. I spend an hour or two a week and farm all the Triggers I need for bullets at the airport in Borean Tundra. Incidentally, we make the best-in-slot Ammo in the game, with the alternative being Violet Eye Reputation ammo.I’m a miner, but any gatherer will do as a good companion to engineering. There are many more clouds than there were in BC. More zones have them, and they seem to have more spawn spots. Also, more kinds of eternals come out of clouds than they did before. I’ve gotten all but crystallized life out of cloud spawns.We can make some pretty stellar scopes, and they’re cheaper than Attumen’s or even Biznick’s were. +40 Crit (any), +40 Haste (mm/sv), +15 dmg (cheap). Potion injectors are far better implemented this time around. You craft a 5-stack of BoE items, which combines with 4 stacks of potions. This way engineers no longer have to craft them for others, and we can sell them on the AH without investing in potions.The rest are really just perks, like freeing up some bag slots with the pocket knife, having a cheap portable vendor, portable mailbox, repair bots.Gnomish and Goblin engineers didn’t get much differentiation. And there’s no Teleporter yet – though there’s a setup for it in K3. I guess they wanted people to take the Band of the Kirin Tor vs. an engy trinket. I hope they add this in an upcoming patch.
