Is engineering "worth it"? Well, it's probably more expensive to level than most professions, earns you some money but not that much, and its stat and ability bonuses grant cooldowns or situational utility rather than flat stat boosts like fur linings or shoulder inscriptions. So, in terms of a cost-benefit analysis, no, engineering isn't worth it.That being said, engineering is FUN. Those stat and ability bonuses are unpredictable, useful, often unique and just plain cool. Engineering has more cosmetic rewards than any other profession. And you might not want a backfire or other malfunction while in the middle of a raid boss fight, but you have to admit it keeps you alert. Engineering is generally not as "useful" as other professions and it was NEVER intended to be. It's the crazy, exploding-sheep, evil-twin profession. I don't understand why people keep being disappointed that it's not ALSO very profitable or really easy to level.
