As a gun-wielding Gnomish Engineer from the first day I made him, my hunter is highly displeased at having to consort with those who are advocates of a clearly inferior engineering method simply to obtain his ammunition.

The entire situation is odd. You'd think you'd be used to having things blow up by accident to learn to work with things that will blow up on purpose.

"Add more gunpowder and jack the price up 25%" is not a reasonable or even safe engineering method, but that's exactly what goblin "engineering" is all about.

"BOOM! HAHAHAHA!"THAT's what goblin engineering is about.

Oh yeah. Gnomish Engineering. How's that irradiated city working out? But wait! We've got X-ray goggles! At least the last thing we see is vaguely enjoyable ourselves while our body rots away. With the sucky semi-IC joking out of the way, it is a little weird that all of a sudden, they think it's a good idea to re-implement the Gnomish/Goblin Engineering split into Wrath, especially when all signs were pointing to the entire idea of profession specialization going the way of dodo in the near future... and than for something like this. It doesn't even make sense from a lore perspective. Gnomes like arrows, now? Huh?It's a bad omen. First we get an entire expansion full of gadgets that don't actually ever malfunction, /far/ too many Gnome-looking robots, and now being a Goblin Engineer lets me make.... High-end bullets? Pretty lame, Blizzard. Thanks for the Northrend Portal, but bring some slapstick back to Engineering, please.

Gun-wielding Gnomish Engineer here as well. Guess I'll have to bite the bullet and pay the 150g to respec.

My Night Elf is a gun wielding gnomish engineer too, I'm not to happy about the decision to do this although I do not plan to respec, I shall have to stick with my Mammoth Cutters I guess.

Yet another Gnomish Engineer who wants to make bullets. Since it's still on the PTR, maybe there's a possibility that we can persuade Blizzard to remove that restriction, or perhaps give us a way to convert arrows bullets. There were quests back in Vanilla WoW that would give you 200 Thorium Headed Arrows in exchange for 200 Thorium Shells, so perhaps you could do the same here.

Here is yet another Gnomish Engineer that wants bullets. Engineering has some very cool little toys... but otherwise, it feels like we get very little real respect. Changing the stacks of healing/mana potions, and removing our injectors was a slap in the face... now this.
