Engineering specialization in Cata
Return to board index
I still see low level gnomish and goblin recipes still exist in the game, but it doesn't seem that there are any new specialized recipes in Cata. The last good ones were the arrow/ammo recipes from ICC in Wrath, but ammo has been removed from the game.
Is Blizz slowly working towards removing eng. specialization, the way that blacksmith and tailor specializations have recently been removed?
You are mistaken, there are two new pet schematics that require a specialization to learn.
Now as for any "good" ones? yeah, you're absolutely right, there aren't any actual useful new items that require a specialization, yet...
Remember the ammo was added fairly late into the WOTLK expansion, with the final raid instance before Cataclysm. So, we could still see some actual useful Gnomish/Goblin engineering items by next year. Maybe.
Thank you for mentioning the pets. Wowhead doesn't list those recipes as requiring a specialization, which is why I didn't see them. But I do see that they are only sold by the respective/goblin/gnomish eng trainers.
The reason I had wondered is that I plan to roll a new goblin alt soon. I didn't know whether to make him a miner/goblin eng (obvious!) or to take advantage of his racial ability and be herbal/alchemy. I already have a gnome eng on another server, and saw no strong reason to make another eng, if there were no specialized recipes. The pet is at least something to consider.

Long term, you're probably right Cody, but I've made some decent money making entry-level 85 guns/bows for people.
The pets are selling for about 800g apiece on my server, also. It's not TOTALLY unable to make money.
Also note that Goblin Eng. got a new bomb. But were not going there with the mat cost.
Eng. on my server for a money maker is very poor. Crafted items very rarely go above mat cost. But I will enjoy the Epic Helm that will be bis when I craft it.
Gnome can have there X-Ray device. I want a upgraded beam weilder (sp) for my Goblin Eng.
