Auctioneer in Oribos Only Available to Engineers

Recommended Posts

Engineers will gain access to a Holographic Auctioneer in Oribos, the new city hub added to Shadowlands.

Reddit user HydraMods discovered that there is an Auctioneer available in Oribos, so we went to the Hall of Shapes to investigate.

The auctioneer tells you to leave because you have no Engineering skill.

Unfortunately, the Auctioneer will be available only when you learn the Engineering skill.

This reminds me of MoP, when my main had engineering for the longest time, and when i got to the late game hub, I was confused why I couldn't use the auctioneer.

 

If they go this bizarre shut-down route of peoples' choices, I think it would at least be nice for them to include other exclusive NPC perks to all professions.

Back in WotLK the auctioneer was also engineering based if I recall correctly. It was "relatively recent" that it was made available to everyone

Luckily for me I have The Mighty Caravan Brutosaur!

This is not new or surprising, having been the case in 4 of 7 expansions, starting in Wrath.

 

TBC - none I can find, auctioneers were added to the Aldor/Scryer banks 4.0.3a

WotLK - can be seen by anyone, only used by Engineers until 4.0.3a, now usable by anyone.

Cataclysm - home city AHs

Pandaria - can be seen by anyone, only used by Engineers

WoD - none I can find, but there was a quest for anyone to build one in your garrison

Legion - can only be seen/used by Engineers

BfA - can only be seen/used by Engineers

Might've been around for a long time, but I never liked this. There should be some equivalent for the other professions to make up for it or have some other restriction (if it's going to have a restriction at all) for all players to obtain. I actually have engineering as one of my professions, not because I like it (I hate engineering) or leveling it (I pretty much never train it) but just to be able to use the auctioneer in the main hub. I personally think they failed the design around this because of that. You shouldn't feel forced to pick a profession just to have a single bonus in the main hub for which you don't even have to train the profession.

As an engineer since classic/TBC on more than one character...that is the reason I will save my gold and won't buy a longboi. I personally would draw no advantage from it anyways. But that's another story. 

I only find it fair, that the profession who was always the hardest to level (it got better, but Classic/TBC/WotLK was pure horror regarding mats and costs...you needed leather, cloth etc. not only materials from mining...materials for the chopper were expensive as f***) gets some bonus for the effort. 

But it is not only that. It is the mounts, the teleports and the loads of absurdities which make this profession my favorite of all. Who does not want to shrink ppl? Or make them explode with a gnomish death ray from space? Or teleport themselves to God-knows-where? The list goes on and on. 

Well...I always enjoyed this (unfortunately the gnome thingy does not work as it did regarding the damage dealt nowadays😅). 

And if anyone does not like the idea. Well just put an auction house alt in Orgrimmar/Stormwind and send him all the stuff? I guess that is the normal way anyways when I look at all the Level-1s running from mailbox to auction house the whole day. 🤔🤷🏼‍♂️

There is a way for everybody, just find it.

      The reigning and two time MDI champions, Meeres, Naowh and Gingi, formerly Wunderbar/Method EU, now Echo,  have been poking around the Shadowlands beta Mythic+ content and have come upon a very specific strategy against some specific affixes, which might become the M+ meta if things stay as they are on the beta right now. The addition of a second tank was due to the difficulty of the Tyrannical affix (+ Grievous, but mostly the former, as it's problematic with other affixes as well), as the keys were really very problematic for even the best M+ players in the world. Tyrannical is really am issue as it stands on the beta right now, and the 2 tank solution isn't good for the game, according to them, but you should check out the video, as it's short and very informative.

      It seems a new round of beta invites has arrived, or Blizzard has amped up the intensity of the handing out of access, as many players have noticed and encouraged other to check their inboxes on reddit! The number of players reporting getting an invite indicates this is a particularly large wave. In case you also just got into the beta, you can check out our Shadowlands guides to get a better grip on all the content available.
      Also, as noticed by twitter user @DoumStorm, also check your launcher first, as the mails tend to be slower than the invites themselves!
      Here are some of the responses to getting the key, with some interesting takes:

      This week's beta class changes appear to be starting and Warriors get a change to a powerful legendary item, as the Mishapen Mirror gets nerfed. We recently talked about this legendary in particular in out Protection Warrior spec highlights, and it's was one of two top pics for the spec.

      Hello.
      In this week’s build of the Shadowlands Beta, the Misshapen Mirror legendary has been changed. It now increases Spell Reflect duration by 60% and only affects your nearest ally.
      Previously, this legendary was proving to be stronger than intended.
      Thank you very much for your feedback.

      Death Knights get two Covenant abilities changes this week on the Beta, as Abomination Limb and Shackle the Unworthy get target caps, buffs and more.
      September 30 (source)
      In this week’s new build of the Shadowlands Beta, we’ve updated two covenant abilities, Abomination Limb and Shackle the Unworthy.
      Abomination Limb has been target capped at 5, and its damage has increased by 15%. The grip has also been updated so it may only pull the same target every 4 seconds. This change was made to prevent it from encouraging the Death Knight to repeatedly walk out of range and then pull the same target.
      We’ve also added a new functionality to the ability that grants Bone Shield charges, Rime, or Runic Corruption (based on spec) the first time the Limb pulls an enemy (this only occurs once). We hope this change will broaden the usage of the ability outside of PvP.
      Shackle the Unworthy has had its damage increased by 15%, but no longer has its cooldown reduced when spending runes. Instead of the cooldown reduction, it now works as follows: “While Shackle the Unworthy is active on an enemy, your direct-damage attacks that spend runes have a 50% chance to spread Shackle the Unworthy to a nearby enemy”.
      We hope this change gives the ability a more active playstyle and creates more situations where it might be more useful than its previous iteration.
      Thanks for the continued feedback, and we look forward to your thoughts on these recent changes.

      No Assassination changes this week either, as Outlaw gets the focus, with Blade Flurry buffs and more.
      September 30 (source)
      In this week’s build of the Shadowlands Beta, we have some notable changes for Outlaw Rogues.
      Since both Assassination and Subtlety can apply poisons in AoE relatively easily, we want Outlaw to have access to similar utility. As such, Blade Flurry hits can now apply poisons to any enemies hit.
      We’ve also changed the Between the Eyes debuff. It no longer gives you increased Critical Hit Damage against the target; it now gives you increased Critical Strike Chance against the target. This allows Blade Flurry to spread the damage bonus of this debuff to secondary target.
      Thanks again for your testing and feedback!
