The Queue: Engineering's BFG edition

Welcome back to The Queue, WoW Insider's daily Q&A column where the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Adam Holisky will be your host today.

Alex is out loading up his backpacks with all his gear, hopping on his Traveler's Tundra Mammoth and walking across Azeroth for a couple days. So until he's back to us full time I'm going to take a few more days this week of "Da Queue." Be sure to leave us your questions as a comment, or if you want to remain anonymous (because really, besides "Why can't Paladins tank?" there is no such thing as a dumb question) you can send us a tip on our tip line. Enough talk! Let us Queue!

Insider Trader: Northern Engineering highlights

Insider Trader is your inside line on making, selling, buying and using player-made products.

Engineering has seen many changes over the past year, and Wrath of the Lich King brought even more. Today, Insider Trader is taking a look at some of the highlights of the profession to help you set goals and plan ahead with your leveling.

This by no means covers every schematic, and instead looks at the big ticket items and new innovations, including stylish, if somewhat controversial, new modes of transportation, consolidations to save bag space, and more.

Mimicry in Engineering

The Khorium Toolbox never fails to provide top-notch engineering facts, lists and tricks. The latest project posted examines how the tools and gadgets that engineers can craft mimic the abilities of various classes. Put another way, it allows you to see how becoming an engineer could fill in gaps in your class by providing you with skills that your character could not have otherwise.

No matter what class you envy, you could get your hands (or paws) on some of their tricks. Of course, as with most things in engineering, the opportunities for use may not be as plentiful as would be desired. In addition, many engineering gadgets have an embarrassingly high failure rate.

Engineering is also the favored profession of many battleground twinks. Some of the tools available have some interesting and effective uses in PvP in particular.

Have you been considering engineering as a profession, perhaps for a twink alt, or through funding from your level 70 character? Do you plan on using the abilities strategically, in battlegrounds, or to fill in gaps in your class, or are you mostly in it for the fun and shock value?

Tips for making profit with engineering

The Khorium Toolbox has recently posted a very thorough article on all of the ways that you can, in fact, make money from being an engineer. Although you are unlikely to make back the cost of leveling the profession any time soon, it's provides some excellent ideas as a start.

Sell-worthy goodies include ammunition, non-combat pets, guns, and fun, quirky gizmos that are the characteristic trademark of the engineering profession.

As a hunter, I definitely benefited from the fact that my engineering guildmate could often provide ammunition, guns, and scopes. I helped out with mats, of course, and I really liked the hand-made aspect of the weaponry.

Some of these items will require you to max out your engineering, so check out Lisa's guide to pushing your skill up to the last.

If you're thinking about taking up engineering, or are an engineer in need of some cash, The Khorium Toolbox has a very thorough guide that you can't afford to miss.
