Nov 29th 2010 5:58PM That only happens on trash, not important. When it matters that you can bring the damage, you'll have plenty of time to steady shot at much as you like. Unless you're standing in the fire.
Nov 25th 2010 10:23PM Agreed. Engineering is the only profession that truly needs some love. Scribe/Engineer on my main. Love 'em both, for different reasons.
Nov 25th 2010 10:09PM Oh, and of course, as I said above, we will still be crafting the BoE offhands and the new BoE relics, as well as a few interesting items. Such as the adventurers journal that gives random buffs to people while levelling (including one which boosts exp gain, I hear).
This is a good time to be a scribe, as long as you understand the difference between profit and revenue. Think big.
Nov 25th 2010 10:05PM The new trinkets may well be that valuable in the early days, but that is partially because of inflation.
The best thing about the new DMF trinkets is that none of them are as bad as most of the WotLK DMF trinkets, where only one was really sought after. The current crop are looking to all be less useful than the greatness card, but better than the rest. A more reliable cash cow for scribes.
Vellums are no longer a good market, but the glyph market is picking up again so go with that if you stockpiled any ink. If you didn't, you're outta luck unless you can pick up cheap herbs on the AH.
The rest, we still bring the scrolls, not so great, and the new dust if we can get the Cata herbs cheap enough, that won't happen for a month or three.
All in all, I'm going to make a fair bit of money from inscription. I half suspect most of the complaints about how it's going to be terrible are from scribes hoping to scare of their competition. It's strange to see so much aggro about it all, this is a huge potential money maker for anyone with a grasp of basic mathematics.
Nov 25th 2010 7:10PM Selling glyphs, off hand items, relics, DMF trinkets, and potentially dust of disappearance.
Please, feel free to assume there's no money to be made. Just leaves more for me and anyone else who's able to do math.
May 29th 2009 9:23PM LnL does proc reasonably often, but nowhere near as often as it used to. The pattern seems to be far less predictable, but a reduction overall. I do love getting chain procs though, makes my tanks throw hissy fits. :)

Mar 31st 2009 10:52PM I like, and am reasonably content with, Engineering as it is now.
No, it's not the best for min-maxing, has no useful enchants (standard ones are better for me, even after 3.1), only gives some nice epic goggles that will be replaced in fairly short order, and has lost the utility of the majority of all the old fun stuff, but I still like it.
There's no mount in the game I would want to trade my gyrocopter for (although maybe the new ulduar robot head mount, if I get lucky enough). There's no helmet I prefer to my engy goggles (I hate wearing my raiding helmet, ugly thing). I still like using the old combat pets even if they ARE totally useless, they're hilarious. I like the smoke flares, and the fireworks and the new flashlight trinket sounds cool too.
We have all the best toys, it's just a pity they're useless.
