Engineering is a primary crafting profession that can create as many useful and amazing items as it can create junk. Engineers can create helpful items for generally all classes to be used in PVE or PVP. To counterbalance this usefulness, most items crafted by engineering require engineering skill to use, and many of these items come with a chance for unexpected backfires with often hilarious results. Hunters in particular see much use for engineered guns, bullets, arrows, and scopes.
The most notable of the Engineering Profession Recipes, known from now on as Schematics, are the [Field Repair Bot 74A], the [Goblin Jumper Cables], and the [Gyro-balanced Khorium Destroyer]. The latter of which can be sold for quite a large sum of money, and the former two are a must for longer raids.
Engineering, like Tailoring and Blacksmithing, has the opportunity to specialize in one field or another. Engineering has the option at skill level 200 to specialize in Gnomish or Goblin Engineering. The main difference between both sides is the location of their respective teleporters and the ability of their trinkets. Some items require a specific specialization to use, while other items are crafted by one specialization but are usable by any engineer. Fortunately, most recipes that are crafted by one Specialization can be worn by both, namely [Goblin Jumper Cables XL].
