- Repair bots, Mail bots, VENDOR BOTS
Repair bots are all right, but they aren't that big of a deal. It's not that hard to hearth back to a city and repair and get Warlock summoned if you're in a raid. They are a convenience, but they do not help your character, which is what I'm complaining about.
- lvl 80 gear (some costs Frozen orbs which drop off final bosses in all the heroics)
Lol, what level 80 gear? Care to link me to this level 80 gear you speak of? If by level 80 gear you mean the goggles, then those are level 72. Plus, they aren't nearly as good as the last goggles. The last goggles would last you past T5. This time they can be replaced right as you enter Naxx, which is basically Wrath's version of Kara. I made them, I'm using them, but I'd give them up for a different profession right now if I could, because these aren't going to last long.
As for the guns, I'm a Warlock and don't benefit from them, except being able to sell them, which I haven't been able to do yet. Engineering is not a money making profession, besides it's ability to collect motes/crystals.
- mounts: you make em, they will sell
Mount, not plural. You can sell the motorcycle, which costs over 12,000 gold to make. You might be able to sell one every now and then, but it's not like you're going to bring in a huge amount of cash selling motorcycles. Plus, this isn't what I'm complaining about. Engineering is all about just being humorous and fun, rather than actually benefiting your character. All of those engineer enchants you can get are not worth overwriting your armor's current enchants, that wouldn't help you for raiding at all. And while engineering used to be good for PVP, so many things have been blocked from being used in the Arena now.
Like I said, there would be nothing I'd miss if I dropped it, except the Mote Extractor. Engineering is the only profession that doesn't give you some type of bonus, which is shitty.
Engineering is in dire need of a buff, I'm not the only person who thinks that. The forums are flooded with people who are crying out for more stuff for engineering.
