We found four different tints of Goblin Hovercraft mounts in the game files so far. At least one of them (Xiwyllag ATVXiwyllag ATV) will be crafted by Engineers. All tints may eventually be available from Engineering, similar to Jewelcrafting mounts in Mists of Pandaria.

UPDATE: This mount is probably intended for the final boss of THE MOTHERLODE dungeon.

Another cool mount we found is called PH Goblin Head. It has a built-in drill and a machine gun. It's similar to Mimiron's HeadMimiron's Head, but way cooler! We have no idea if it's going to be available to players, but at the moment, it's listed under mounts.

Holy fucking shit. Now I can finally get something that looks remotely similar to Mimiron's Head since motherbitch Yogg Saron refused to give to me all these years. Unless they make the requirement even harder.

...Engineers.  Again.

They virtually get every useful and unique item in this game. 

Youre not serious right? Tailoring: flying carpet, BS: green corehound, JC: Jewled panther mounts (4 in total), alchemist: ALL THE POTIONS just all of them...

 

Long story short eng got shafted for most of this expansion, nearly no ways to make a stable income, almost all the use items didnt even work in the only raid they were tuned for, basically still brought for only the repair bots, and even then most of the raid you can just mount up. Sorry they get to make a new mount, i guess.

Oh I'm quite serious. Mounts are mounts. Even your example from tailoring was all the way back to Wrath, unless you actually USE creeping carpet.  It's not 'just repairs.'  Read more for 'useful and unique.'  "engineers got shafted."  

Remind me again what a BS brings to the table in a raid?

Engineering 'shafted' repeatedly via:

Reaves, Auto hammer, Failure detection pylon, Jeeves, Wormhole Generator, Mailbox, Goblin Jumper Cables, Food dispenser table...

Older patterns all the way back to Major Recombobulator and Deepdive Helmet...

if u want to pull in the old patterns im still going to go with the fact eng got shafted this exp. Useful and unique alchemy still wins, eng got ANOTHER (trying to drive this non-unique thing here) repair bot. failure pylon is the only raid useful thing currently on the table but wont be used much anywhere else and is unreliable due to the placement requirements, where as the food table isnt used bc almost everything out there is better AND isnt on a CD AND is cheaper to make (see fish plate).

BS got a new mount this xpac and eng got what? a robot that again didnt work for the first part of the expansion, lets not even talk about how your couldnt even complete the robot for the first 4 months because of ridiculous farming requirements. The most unique thing eng got this round was the blingtron game, and we got a similar game with JC bejewled.

Long store short, your original post about eng getting everything is just wrong. Nearly every other prof has a stable way to generate income while also being able to add to your characters daily use (usefulness right here). BS and LW are the only competitors this exp for longevity as the crafted gear just falls off too quick. 

I wont deny eng got some "cool" stuff this expac like the bandage gun or the buoy but really, theyre not used, at all. Theyre all gimics because they couldnt think of anything useful to give eng, And I really wish the turret was worth it but again, its just not worth the time or resources. Sadly they also restrict the mech usage to outdoors and gave it such pitiful numbers it wasnt worth more than a quick laugh never to be used again.

As opposed to what Enchanting ALWAYS gets, enchants, and Alchys ALWAYS get, flasks....  Missing your point there.  Reaves isnt JUST a repair bot, it has like 8 different functions.  "I dont like those functions" not withstanding, they're still there.

aaaaand back to mounts.  How are they 'useful and unique' in ANY environment, unless its a repair mount?  You can get around just as good on a Stormwind Gryphon or an Ellwyn Pony as Invincible or some crafted mount. 

That's still not explaining what professions like BS bring to a raid - meaning 'useful.'  Or even unique since it brings literally zero, whether you " like it" or not.

No.  See above.  Your desire to use it doesn't mean it's not available.

Theeeere is the crux.  Youre not talking USEFUL or unique, just sales now.  Eng doesn't get a lot of sellable stuff?  Nuts!  They were selling goblin gliders last xpac like they were going out of style.  'shucks'.  EVEN THAT IS/WAS USEFUL AND UNIQUE. 

Also what does selling have to do with your daily use of your character?  Unless you go AH every day (I never do,) your re-saleable items are a moot point.  Does that mean I get to discount your arugment because I dont find selling stuff to be 'useful or unique?'

'useful' again...  Many of its perks are useful, whether you want to or not is immaterial.  You think they'd make all the mats cheaper for (and buffs as good or better than the rest for) eng also, since you could pick one profession and eliminate many others?  No.  It'd eliminate numerous professions. 

Eng does a great many things marginally well, and has a little bit of utility for MANY things.  Your desire to use it is immaterial, it's still there. 

UNIQUE, for sure.  Useful is debateable, but I can tell you this, the mats 'costing more' are a far sight better than the mailbox I can't make with tailoring, or the Goblin Glider I can't make with Enchanting, or the food table I can't make with Leatherworking, or the reparibot I can't make with JC...

Wondering if it being a hovercraft will it be able to go over water like the waterstrider. If so will might sell pretty nice to people that dont have a strider moun't and dont want to grind the rep for one.

      Congratulation Tweets, Hall of Fame for Method's WF
      Method Gets the G'huun World First! - Kill video from the stream, wipecount and more.
      Uldir Race Day 8: 4.1% G'huun Lives to the Second Week - Method get the boss down to 4.1%, Limit may have extended their lockout and we get World First and second Mythrax kill videos.
      Uldir Race Day 7: G'huun Down to 12% and Nerfed - A 12% try from Method and a nerf to the big worm.
      Uldir Race Day 6: Method Catch Up, Mythrax Video - Method and Exorsus catch up and we get a Mythrax kill video.
      Uldir Race Day 5: Limit World First 7/8 - Limit head to the top and take a strong lead with their Mythrax the Unraveler World FIrst.
      Uldir Race Day 4: Zul Down, 6/8 by EU and US - Method get the World First on Zul, Reborn and Limit catch up to them quickly.
      Uldir WF Race Day 3: US 5/8, Devourer Down - Limit grab the World First after some more hotfix nerfs to Fetid Devourer.
      Uldir Mythic WF Race Day 2: Fetid Devourer Endboss - EU guilds catch up but no one can get past the 5th boss, Fetid Devourer and 8 guilds are stuck at 4/8.  Uldir Mythic WF Race Day 1: 4 Bosses Down - Big Dumb Guild and Limit get 4 bosses down before EU servers come up, Blizzard nerfs Fetid Devourer and we get to see three WF kill videos. ____________________________________________________________________
      The gates of Mythic Uldir have opened and the US and OC servers are coming up after maintenance. Now it remains to be seen who will go in early and grab those World Firsts before the EU an Asian guilds have had a chance to enter the first raid of Battle for Azeroth. As always, we'll have summary posts for each day early in the EU morning.
      Of the possible contenders on the US/OC scene we have Wildcard Gaming, formerly Easy, who have already taken a WF in Heroic, with their G'huun kill, and seem eager to get their new name heard, so they might just be the leading US guild. On the other hand, Limit has been a dominant presence in the US/OC scene for a long time now, grabbing most WFs and being the only real competition to the EU and Asian guilds in the endgame. We also have SNF and Big Dumb Guild who have gotten some World Firsts in the past, and have been known to raid early, so the competition for those first few kills should be high. Blood Legion also seem to have returned after a long hiatus, as they will be raiding "semi-competitively" in BfA, but it remains to be seen what exactly that means.
      As always, we'll be using Method's raid progress coverage for our own summaries and you can head on over to their site to follow the race live, both today with the usual updates and tomorrow with the guild itself streaming the race live. For other streams of the progress race, head on over to twitch's WoW page and you'll be sure to find tons of players showing off their journey through Uldir.
      We'll also be using this article as a hub for all the race summary posts.

      The race is about to begin and you can check out all of our coverage right here.

      Just when you thought they were gone, the hotfixes make their comeback! Today we get some Tol Dagor nerfs, some fixes and improvements for Island Expeditions, including some achievements now being account-wide and a brand new World Quest to win one! There's also the usual PvP and quest fixes, as well as another Heart of Azeroth tweak.
      September 21 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Tol Dagor Overseer Korgus’ Incendiary Rounds’ damage and Blast Rounds’ pushback decreased by 25%. Island Expeditions
      A new world quest has been added to win one Island Expedition. Click on the map and set sail for adventure! Some Island Expedition achievements have been made account-wide. Resolved additional issues that could prevent players from gaining progress in Island Expeditions for the weekly quest “Azerite for the Horde / Azerite for the Alliance”. Items
      Fixed bugs that were preventing Truffles in Stormsong Valley from behaving as expected. Heart of Azeroth Ablative Shielding is no longer reduced by Stagger. Player versus Player
      The Weekly Quest "Something Different" can now be completed by participating in Shado-pan Showdown, as intended. “Something Different” now grants a 340 item level Dread Gladiator piece of gear from the Brawl Footlocker. Players who have already turned in “Something Different” this week can now complete it a second time. World Quests
      Fixed an issue where the "Pest Problem" did not count towards the Storm's Wake emissary. There are now a greater number of Ancient Texts that are “Past Due”. Previous Hotfixes

      A lot of Azerite trait talk today as Blizzard have announced a second round of tuning, focusing on tanks and healers, coming with the next reset. We also got a blue post commenting on the imbalance in the traits and the Mythic+ problem with Azerite armor not being available.

      There's also some PvP class tuning coming next week which you can check out here.
      Trait Tuning (source)
      With scheduled maintenance next week, we intend to make some targeted adjustments to Azerite Traits for tanks and healers. Here's what that currently looks like:
      Blessed Sanctuary bonus increased by 10%. Burst of Life healing increased by 20%. Craggy Bark bonus increased by 15%. Dauntless Divinity block increased by 20%. Depth of the Shadows healing increased by 20%. Ephemeral Recovery mana increased by 15%. Gory Regeneration healing increase increased by 15%. Judicious Defense absorption increased by 10%. Masterful Instincts bonuses increased by 10%. Permeating Glow bonus increased by 15%. Reinforced Plating Strength increased by 10%. Revel in Pain absorption increased by 20%. Savior trigger threshold increased to 50% health (was 35%). Soothing Waters healing increased by 10%.
      You'll see the final adjustments in our hotfixes update post on Tuesday.
       
      Trait imbalance and M+ (source)
      Couple things:
      We agree that the trait imbalance is a real problem right now. We made a bunch of tuning adjustments last week, and have more planned for the very near future (primarily focused on buffing underperforming traits). We see this as the source of most of the frustrations with the system; if the delta between your best and worst traits wasn't so big, it'd be less frustrating when a piece of Azerite armor doesn't have your best trait on it.
      We also agree that the Mythic+ Azerite Armor situation isn't ideal. However, we need to be careful with how we award Azerite Armor through M+. Right now, easier access to Azerite Armor is one of the main advantages that raiding has over gearing exclusively through Mythic+, and we want to keep some additional benefit there as compensation for the extra effort and coordination needed to organize a raid team. That's is why we're hesitant to do something like add a guaranteed piece of Azerite Armor to the weekly chest - it'd be too lucrative.
      But like I said, we do agree that the current setup can be frustrating. We're looking for better options.
