Functions the same as
, but usable by non-engineers.
Oh, even if all my charies are engineers - this is going to be nice for people playing AH and undercutting every five seconds. At least, once every while i guess.
Keep out of bath tubs.
Contrary to popular belief, they do not bounce here, there, or everywhere.
Normally too complicated for the common person, this particular mailbox has extra-large buttons and instructions on it.
This is, without a doubt, a non-engineer
My guess is that it will be up on Auction House for 10k for the first week of WoD, but it's going to be flooded by it and will go down to 250g in no time... Engineering isn't the way to make money, /sigh
"Normally too complicated for the common person, this particular mailbox has extra-large buttons and instructions on it."
...so it's a voting booth?
Downsides compared to
-2 hours longer cooldown
-Last for only 5 minutes, down from the 10 minutes that
-Has only 3 charges, while
has an unlimited amount
EERRRMMMAAAGGGGEEERRRDDD! Yes, it's about time :). When you are a high level toon and you are farming for mats in lower level dungeons/raids, it can be frustrating when you find yourself with the message "your bags are full". AACCKK! So this will help alot...thanks Blizz! But the cooldown is just silly. 3 hours? really ?
For people not on the beta and don't know, this item is NOT built by Engineers. It's a vendor item (~1.5g each; 3 charges per buy) from a vendor at your small plot Garrison: The Engineering Works, and you only need to have them as a small plot to buy it (in addition to getting pretty much every non-ENG recipe in WoD!).
Obviously inferior with half the duration and triple the cooldown of the ENG version,
, this, and the other non-ENG items are going to make ENG a typically weak profession this expansion, only having Nitro Boosts (and it's terrible now, sharing a cooldown with Potions), Blingtron 4000/5000, and Goggles (which can be replaced with raid gear anyways). Also the Wormhole Generator on a FOUR HOUR COOLDOWN, but you can just use the Mage Tower at your Garrison instead, which has NO cooldown.
And for anyone wanting
, there is now
, who isn't as good/cool, but is also bought from the same vendor who sells GUMM-E.
This item is a very unique one! I've compiled some information on it below:
is an item very similar to the Engineering-only
, without the profession requirement.
This mailbox can be used by
, of ANY LEVEL!
The flavour text jokingly alludes to this: "Normally too complicated for the common person, this particular mailbox has extra-large buttons and instructions on it."
This mailbox can be purchased from a follower with the

The item has 3 charges - it is consumed after these charges are used.
As this item is Bind on Use, it can be traded or bought/sold on the Auction House. It is the only Engineering Workshop item that isn't Bind on Pickup.
This item can be stored in Engineering bags, like
lasts for 5 minutes once spawned, and has a 3 hour cooldown.
The cooldown is shared with

This item has the "Unique: Engineering Workshop Item (1)" tag, meaning that only 1 item purchased from an Engineering follower can be in your inventory at one time. These items are listed in the chart below.
This means you CAN'T have multiple
s in your inventory (including your bank!)
A way to hold on to more than one is to use the mail system. Note that these will sit in your mailbox for 30 days before expiring PERMANENTLY (unless you loot them and use or re-mail them):
Mail them to an alt for safe keeping (one by one). You can them leave them there or just return them for use on your main.
List them for auction, then cancel them to put them in your mailbox (one by one)
The items that are available from the Engineering Works followers have some interesting utility and perks. Anyone (even non-Engineers with the Engineering Works building) can purchase and use these items.
They are available for sale from the follower itself, who hangs out around your Engineering building. Note that these followers sometimes wander a bit, so may not always be found in the building itself, but nearby in the garrison.
Below are the other items sold in the Engineering Works with a follower assigned to it.

Just nerfed on 9/20/16. "You are in the wrong zone." when you try to use outside of Draenor. RIP any sort of residual utility Warlords may have granted us.
