Hmm... don't want to give up alchemy / herb for eng :(

You know whats better than engineering for PvP? Grouping up and working in conjunction with one another.

@kralnarts

You trying to get your post count up, brah :slight_smile: ?

Not sure that a generic, PVP “common sense” generalization was called for her considering was just asking for some thoughts on a specific profession…

I can’t deny what you said isn’t valuable; just not sure as to why it was injected in this particular discussion.

Well maybe you are having a bad day :slight_smile:

Do it at 60.

I am also herb / alch, will drop herb for Eng.

I plan to make an alt, that alt will herb and mine

I plan to make a second alt, that one will blacksmith and skin.

Just like people have bank alts, people also have prof alts.


#25

re-read what he is asking and why, then re-read what I wrote. If you don’t get it, i’m sorry you aren’t understanding.


#26

I understand you 100% as you seem confused as to who the OP is. (Me)

The “helping people” part was referencing doing transmutes with alchemy. I will update my post for clarifications and slower persons like you.

Thanks for stopping by :slight_smile:


#27

Ah, then in that case, then yes go with ALL the guides that state its mandatory. good luck!


#28

Yeah thanks a lot. I think this is what I will do at some point at 60 also. We shall see i have a bank alt with almost all of the mats required already.

Appreciate your post :slight_smile:

The only skill you need is enchanting and thats if you want to tank as a druid. Smoking heart of the mountain is a BIS trinket I think at least for the first few phases. But for pvp engineering will help but you cant use them in forms so a lot of shifting to use nades.


#30

I don’t remember the exact level, but I’m fairly confident you don’t need to be level 60 to be 300 in a prof either. Just to say that you don’t need to max level your prof alts like you do in retail.


#31

Yeah, forgot about that good point. Druids might be one of the ones who could get by without it as much :slight_smile:


#32

Level an alt with Herb/Mining and drop Herbs on your main for Engineering.


#33

Counterpoint:

If huge numbers of people are going engineering that should mean that the services of the other professions (alchemy/blacksmith/enchant etc.) that are needed in the game will be more in demand.

Engineering can provide you some nifty pvp toys, but other professions may end up more lucrative($$$) based on basic supply and demand.

Just a thought.


#34

It amazes sometimes how people (myself often included) can be so afraid to play a video game because they’re “doing it wrong”.

Just have fun.

:slight_smile:


#35

So true. :slight_smile:

Sometimes you lose sight of that as you get glued to a meta or what you should be doing vs. what you could be doing; and doing it just fine :slight_smile:

And it’s funny as yesterday I return-ganked a higher level rogue who had engineering and interestingly enough it was my “alchemy” that won the encounter or at least helped :slight_smile: It’s a great video haha


#36

It’s not a ‘must’ to anyone except ppl who copy min-maxing guides


(Qaletaqqa) #37

Trade bombs for pots, prosper. Or level an engineer.
