Patch 5.4 PTR: Sky Golem mount allows for aerial flower picking

Sky Golem
Engineers have been kept waiting for the release of a few exciting new schematics. It's been too long! I have four engineers (I'm not crazy, I swear), so I was excited to see the new engineering mount updated in the latest patch 5.4 PTR build. We knew it previously as Sky Claw, but this awesome mount's official name is Sky Golem.

In the original build, the mount's tooltip indicated that it'd be able to carry an ally, but it seems to have changed. The new tooltip has been updated to say that instead, the claws of the mount can be used by herbalists to pick herbs. Now druid herbalists aren't the only ones that get to have all the fun!

We've been waiting a long time but keep in mind that things on the PTR are subject to change. I'm trying not to get my hopes up -- still -- but these recent updates are making it difficult not to. We'll keep our fingers crossed!

Sky Claw and heirloom shields join Pierre in the coming soon pile

Skyclaw and heirloom shields join Pierre in the coming soon pile
WoW Insider posted recently about the removal of engineering pet and cooking stove combo Pierre from patch 5.2. We weren't sure why he'd gone, but in more bad news for engineers, the Sky Claw mount is also absent, as Ghostcrawler confirms below:
Not only that, but heirloom shields are also not going to be coming with patch 5.2, as Senior Community Rep Zarhym confirms in a forum thread:

Heirloom shields were originally planned to be added in patch 5.2, but, unfortunately, due to a late-breaking bug with these items which prevented them from properly scaling with level, we had to remove them. We still want to get these shields in the game and plan to do so in a future patch.


It's always a shame when much-anticipated items can't make it into the game, especially when they're as cool as the Sky Claw. We hope for their speedy repair, and to see them soon.
