To Daniel. Your point doesn't work or you've never really been a miner. Mining adamantite is easy, it's almost everywhere in outlands and you can use a flying mount, something that's hard to live without when you've tried it. Thorium can only be found in a few zones in old WoW and you have to use your normal mount which is a pain. And let's face it, you level a lot faster from 48 to 58 than 58 to 68, so you'll spend less time in old WoW (where thorium is) and there's no point staying there once you can go to outlands, so the window of opportunity to mine thorium/truesilver/etc. is a lot smaller. You can't really blame that on blizzard since I doubt they'll either allow flying mounts in old world and no one wants a longer grind from 48 to 58, so you're stuck with those prices.As for the epic prices, I guess it depends on your server. On mine, the mats are selling for more than the epics I can craft on my BS/JC/Tailor/Engineer (got a lot of alts). The cooldown on titansteel should've been much longer because those bars went from 450g to 80g in no time, and stuff like titansteel destroyers sell for around 800g.Anyway, long story short, you got it all wrong with your rant about economics. As for me, I like engineering a lot, even if we don't get enough changes. I love my mote extractor, my repair bots are a huge time saver on progression raids, and I still sport my googles + hands enchant. Oh and when I'm in a hurry, that mailbox is pretty cool (though the CD should be shorter) and those teleports are useful when guildies need help (though we' d need more portals).I'm keeping engineering for sure, and hopefully we'll get more stuff in 3.2 : )
