Indeed! Nomatter how gimped engineering will turn out, compared to other proffession perks, blowing stuff up > +60 stamina.

I levelled Engineering on my pally *solely* for the Mekengineer's Chopper. Yes, I know it's BoE. I was too cheap to save up and shell out for it on the AH ... so I probably spent *more* levelling Engineering to make it! I now have a second Chopper in the bank, for my worgen.

With rocket boots and haste gloves and the cloak enchant, engineering combined with jewelcrafting is actually the best profession combination for mages.Of course I kept mining because I don't like having to buy all my mats, but it's still pretty good.

The sound of " mechanohog lol!" will never get old to me when I link in trade :)

I chose engineering before I chose my class! (and hence the name)So I had engineering back in the 60's and something else like enchanting.Just before TBC I droped enchanting to level mining then droped mining for tailoring, droped tailoring for herbing, dropped herbing for mining again ready for Wrath.One realm first engineering later, drop mining for JC, soon I will be dropping JC for Mining again ready for Cataclysm!Then I think replace mining for alchemy this time around but I could never drop engineering, I love it!

I have been an Engineer since I started playing a little over 5 years ago. What really made me keep Engineering was the Gnomish Death Ray. I remember 1 shotting a rogue that was trying to gank me and I haven't even considered swapping since. All the little gadgets are awesome.

Actually I think that Bliz did a lot to improve engineering for PvE raiding and some classes have the profession in their top 3 professions. For example the LK downing because of poor raid design that didn't account for saronite bombs - which has been used in an engineer's normal rotation since bomb schematics were made available. I think the main detractor from engineering has been it's gold making potential.I would never throw away a profession because the time and cost are greater than rolling and leveling another toon to 65 to fill in the gaps, but I can see how this could be a problem for min / maxing on your main, but this could be very costly when a new "best" profession comes out.

I'm one of those late convertees to Engineering's side. For a very long time my main was a miner/JCer. As Wrath raiding progressed I came to the conclusion that engineering's perks were of much more use to me (like the glove enchant for my haste-starved warlock) than a meagre 60 stamina. And the parachute cloak? Oh my sweetness, I can't even count the times it saved my pretty elf-ass... It was more then worth dumping it.Aaaand it's fun ottherwise, too. I mean, what other profession trainers dole out membership cards?!

Yea the first profession I had on my first real character (not the one I had made during my trial time) was engineering and mining. I really loved the Gnomish Shrink Ray and the Gnomish Death Ray when I first made them. I remember going into Arathi Basin and using the Death Ray on a DK and seeing his health drop by half before my teammates finished him. And the Shrink Ray I always used on like raid and instance bosses to ease the damage off our tank. So much fun! Now I still have engineering on my hunter and one of the best things about it is flying off the cliff above gm in AB and finishing off the lone defender before I even hit the ground ( I'm a hunter). So yea I'll always keep engineering on my hunter no matter what others say.

I just switched to engineering because if you use rocket boots off the lumber mill in Arathi Basin then pop your parachute, you get a flying warrior of doom that bladestorms and roflpwns everyone on impact. Throw a bomb somewhere in there too... Delicious.

Yep, I love engineering! There's no way I'll ever drop it either. There's nothing better than having a bunch of gadgets at your disposal.

I love engineering so much that I made some items I don't need just because they look cool. HAHA. My hunter uses engineering almost daily (ammo, enchants, scopes) so I'll NEVER give it up.
