I made a first cut at reformatting this page and cleaning it up. Please comment and/or edit as appropriate. If no major problems, we can then remove the 'cleanup' tag. -Flick

I don't actually remember putting the 'cleanup' tag on here :) Does look much, much better though now! -- Kirkburn 16:25, 13 June 2006 (EDT)


I noticed an interesting thing about gnomish engineering, which, if true, needs to be noted. While browsing my guilds rpgo-CharacterProfile roster I noticed two engineers, with the same skill, having different difficulties making the same item. One was a gnome, the other was not. It looks possible that the diffulty of making an item is based off the base skill before the +15 bonus. So, Gnome engineers not only get the +15 skill bonus initially, but get a persistent bonus to training. On the other hand this could just be a bug in the Character Profiler Addon. If true however, it implies that gnomes, and non gnomes need very different 1 to 300 guides.

recipes Edit

Engineering recipes needs to be expanded  - CJ talk / cont  03:35, 1 February 2007 (EST)

  • Also, could someone please tell me how to edit those tables? New Goblin/Gnomish only things about. Darkroot 08:12, 4 February 2007 (EST)
  • You can edit the tables from the Recipes page. Because of the way this section is set up, you would then have to create a new page for every recipe as well. -- Mordsith - (talk|contr) 18:38, 1 January 2008 (UTC)



Schematics

Why doesn't the schematics box in the right hand side just link to http://www.wowwiki.com/Engineering_proficiency which has all the various subcategories? It seems to me that there is an unnessecary duplication of data foreshadowed Bobelf 06:43, 4 July 2007 (UTC)Bobelf

Would it be wrong to consider merging these two pages and possible create a linked listing of the World Drop/Vendor sold schematics? Because the 'Engineering_proficiency' page is a real mess imo and could do with a merge/cleanup. Evankimori 19:07, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

MountEdit

Is it true engineers will be able to make their own mounts. Rumors about that have been going around my server, so I just wanted a legit source to see what's the truth. Mr.X8 00:11, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Yes, they are getting there own flying mounts a normal and epic version. there is a youtube video of it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTp9uYnyGLA --Yelmurc 00:42, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Cool, guess its a good thing I switched to engineering, and is it opened to the public yet? Thanks. And to think I almost believed it was a mechanical drake :O. Mr.X8 02:06, 15 October 2007 (UTC)


Crafting Profession and Gathering ProfessionEdit

Engineers are no longer bound to crafting alone. Shortly after reaching outlands engineering becomes a very viable gathering profession. The Zapthrottle Mote Extractor (http://thottbot.com/i23821) has the ability to gather 3-5 motes from floating gas clouds (Shadow : Shadowmoon, Air : Naggrand, Watter : Zangamarsh, Mana : Netherstorm) Crafted goggles allow you to see theses clouds on the mini-map making this similar to mining or Herbalism. Spawn points for gas clouds are roughly fixed and re-spawn fairly quickly. sean13128 06:58, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

I think of a "gathering profession" as an inherent ability to do the gathering. While you're right, you're using a tool to extract materials, you don't level up engineering skill by using the extractor. This is more akin to using a quest item to gather <other quest item>. Still, it is an interesting thought. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 22:26, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
