Dropping Eng. - Replace w/JCing or Enchanting?

Postby Ocin » Tue Dec 02, 2008 8:54 am

I'm keeping BSing for nostalgic reasons, but I was going to drop engineering since the goggles will be replaced down the line. What will give the most amount of maxxing down the line, JCing or enchanting?

Sorry if this is a dupe question, didn't see one based on the new profession bonuses or design/enchants.

I've replaced goggles almost the same day I made them, but I've made a lot of money selling motes in the past few weeks so I'm not planning to drop it just yet. Though it is hella tempting. Hella.

I'd wait until next patch info to drop it completely though, you never know what they might add. I would even stay if the only thing they do is make enchants stack with rocket boots and rocket gloves.

I really want to wait, but blizz has said they're not going to make craftables something you have to get to max your gear out. I guess worst case scenario, I'd have to re-level it. That leaves me wondering which will give me more bang; custom gems/trinkets or ring enchants?

That is true, however engineering has nothing comparable to JC/BS extra sockets/super gems. Honestly, I'm expecting some sort of buff.

And if not, hey, at least I'm getting all this money to level up whatever.


Edit: I think the most telling thing about state of engineering is the lack of plate healing goggles (unless I missed them). I think this is a strong indicator that this profession was unfinished.

we're also very early into the expansion. i'd expect some more bop goodies to come into all the professions at some point. i mean if every crafted epic is boe basically, there's not much point to a crafting prof. the way it is now your only real choice are BS-sockets, JC-3 uber gems, LW-bracer mods, tailoring-cape mods and mount, engineering-mote extractor and pre naxx head piece.

if they stay with this model i'll be VERY disappointed.
Again. What grim vision this? Blood stained tomb, beer cans, and piss. This. Is no life...for a god.

I'm pretty positive ulduar will have release with ulduar level goggles or trinkets or new patterns.

I think you're right about new stuff coming down the line, but I have a feeling there will be raid equivalent drops, but no bonus similar to BS sockets coming to engineering.

I was in the same boat and now I'm a BS/JC

I've made a ton of gold since the start of the expansion from those 2 professions.

I like the synergy between the extra slots and the Jc-only gems to get the gem slot and meta bonuses, plus it makes it easy to fine tune your gear when something new drops.

Don't you think a patch will bring a goggle upgrade like sunwell eventually?

I do think that it will, but I also think there will be a raid drop equivalent. I just posted in another thread that I didn't see one tank with the Sunwell goggles which makes me think they were difficult to come by, or not as good as Sunwell drops. Blizz could throw a curve and make them best in slot, but they've said they don't want to force anyone into a profession to get the best items.

And yet people drop Engineering to get best-in-slot enchants/gems/sockets. Backwards philosophy is backwards, but that's blizzard for ya.

I was just about to drop engineering, but I think I'm going to keep it. First, I think there will be goodies in the future. They went on a massive change with stuff wanting the professions to be evernly useful including gathering professions. They won't want Engineering to disapear.

Second, you can cell me what you want, but I flat REFUSE to wear T7. I'm dead serious. I won't wear a piece of T7 because it is the ugliest set I've ever seen. I want the goggle to wear so I don't need to have the stats from the T7. I'm a 10-man guy, and the gogles are ridiculously close to the T7 ones. The second option is Thane's helm, and the goggles have expertise, 20 more def, and produce quite a bit more threat than Thane's.
