What Is Engineering Design?
If you are a PvP player, this career provides you some surprises for the other gamers. I had a low stage ‘toon who made a bunch of bombs and I spent a half hour laughing and throwing bombs at degree 1 mobs in Durotar. Don’t get me mistaken there are some cool stuff solely engineers could make (however cannot make a profit off) however too often it is of little use even for yourself and it prices lots of time and money. On the surface, engineering sounds cool particularly for PVP what with all the bombs and stuff but for all the PVP I do I hardly ever if ever see engineering instruments/weapons getting used. You definitely want a guild or the next degree character with entry to gold and mats to do Engineering correctly. This means a lot of money spent on the AH and plenty of time spent farming for mats and gold which to do both will push your character’s exp past the point of needing the item.
As of patch 6.zero.3 now you can stage engineering actually cheap using Mecha-Blast Rocket and Shieldtronic Shield. Assuming that is appropriate, it’s best if one had been to begin farming elementium ore now, before the inevitable farming submit expansion occurs to keep leveling engineers pleased. If you aren’t a new player and have a guild and/or alts, make sure you have some miners supporting you at low ranges (all that rock and stone is close to-nugatory on the AH, however great for leveling you thru low stage engineering). At max stage, it’s a good suggestion to have an alchemist to do transmutes.
If you do not mine, you spend a lot of gold shopping for issues from miners. If you do mine, you employ up all your inventory, so you aren’t making gold from promoting the stuff. Either means, Engineering is more a labor of love and a fantastic supply of leisure.
This profession is only moderately environment friendly for character leveling, dungeon raiding, PVP in lower ranges in case you have some huge cash, mats, and/or a wellstocked guild/greater degree character preferably an engineer as well and/or miner. If you strive engineering in your lonesome, it will be powerful and if you wish to keep it level together with your character’s stage it will take a very long time.
