No engineer enchants on the list?

Yeah, the engineer enchants beat out Icewalker atleast and the cape tinker>speed. The glove tinker can mess with your Trinket shared CD if you have an on use trinket.

He has a point, the nitro boosts with their flat crit rating is handy... and there's plenty of gnome mages out there that are proud enough of their heritage to take up engineering for all it's zany antics.

god I love engineering the haste tinker on gloves is sexy, and the rocket boots oh the rocket boots2/3 of my 80s have engineeringand all of my alts apart from my resto shammy have itall in all it may not be the best for min maxing (although I think it is for arcane mages at least) but its so much more fun than some passive stat.there's 2 really good posts that argue that engineering is the best dps profession out therehttp://forums.wow-europe.com/thread.html?topicId=8865019228&postId=88638730978&sid=1#15http://forums.wow-europe.com/thread.html?topicId=8864978867&postId=88638730935&sid=1#8*NOTE* sorry for posting twice the one further down was the original but felt it was more relevant here (feel free to down rank the 2nd post)

I think the ideal mix for caster mains (my main's a lock but I'm leveling a mage now, too) is tailoring&enchanting: make your own clothes and enchant them! Plus, flying carpets!So the question is, which of these two professions would you give up to get engineering?Seriously; I'm not about to make my lock unlearn one of them now to pick up engineering. But I think with my lock making tailored gear for my mage, my mage should do an enchanting & engineering combo.(I think blink+rocket boots + parachute + ... will be an awesome combo for wallhacking btw)

Forgot to mention Inscription shoulder enchants too (best-in-slot and cheap too, scribe only), but I believe Christian has talked about them in the past.

personally i was in the same predicament as you (kinda no warlock alt) my mage had tailoring/ enchanting i and i wanted engineering, i decided to give up on enchanting in the end, for 3 main reasions 1) tailoring makes things cheeper with the leg enchant 2) everybody knows a mate/guildy who has enchanting and is willing to do the enchants on the cheep.3) enchanting is soooo Annoying to lvl each expansion (i know that sounds strange moaning about lving enchanting when im going to replace it with engineering on a toon without mining)in all honesty enchanting has more of a sinagy between the professions as you dont have to pick between lightweave and springy arcanoweave but i just like tailoring 3 does leave me in a dilemma though when i changed to engineering from ench i had just lvl'd a dk (with mining/eng) so i had tones of spaire mats. I dont know what to do in cata now do i go the cheap root lvl the dk and send my mage the ore or lvl my mage and eat the costs. i dont think i could live with myself if a dk was my first 85 though /end wall of txt

also rocket boots+slow fall + thorims mountain in storm peaks= best ride ever to be honest rocket boots+slow fall +invisibility is a amazing get away plan. if you add an invisibility pot to that aswell..

my mage engineers the springy arcanoweave (+23sp) to cape and the hyperspeed accelorateors (haste on use every 60 sec!), plus the wholly superior nitroboots to feet.if you have to move more than a few steps, then blink. if you have to move across the room, then nitro boost.its especially awesome when you can get your gloves haste and your black magic haste to proc together, good time to pop arcane power imo ;p
