It got 'fixed' a while ago (3 weeks'ish). Was initially +2940 to a stat for 10 seconds - 1 minute cooldown, which made it significantly better than any other profession. It's now +1920 primary, putting it back to the +320 (static) primary stat like most profession bonuses. I think Leatherworking is still +330.

Unless something else has come up more recently?

Engineering is great for pve, it gives its stat boost in a concentrated burst, which means you can line it up with cooldowns, or have it ready for burst phases.

It averages out to the same as most production professions.

It can't be used with on-use Trinkets, they trigger a universal cool-down so you can't stack 'em. But you can pop them right after the Synapse Springs wear off.

The Tinker works with the Blacksmithing sockets and stacks with other Glove enchants.

Plus you get a iLevel 476 Helmet, and a iLevel 450 Trinket, which should be good for pre-raid gearing.

      This is the first time I've ever experienced the engineering battle res item, Disposable Spectrophasic Reanimator, backfire. Not only that, it also critted, essentially one shotting me. I've been using the engg bres item for more than a year now (since 8.3), so I was quite shocked to find out that I got extremely unlucky the first time it did backfire!

      Why can't I find a line about World of Warcraft professions here on Icy Veins?
      I need info on how to get the Mist of Pandaria skills on a 110-char that you
      just re-started and changed your profession skills on. I now want to learn 
      Alchemy and Engineering from Mist of Pandaria to Legion. How do I do?

      One of the core values we live by here at Blizzard is “Embrace Your Inner Geek.” We play countless games, we collect comics and card games, we love cutting-edge technology and computer hardware, we’re fascinated by science and discovery, and many of us are movie buffs. Movies represent the combined imaginations of talented writers and visionaries, artists and operators, editors and producers, that can culminate in an awesome cinematic experience.
      It’s with this motivation that we express our respect for JJ Abrams' Bad Robot Productions.
      Coming in a future patch, characters with the Engineering profession will be able to produce this mechanical homage to the company that brought us award-winning television shows like Lost and Fringe, and are continuing the epic Star Trek and forthcoming Star Wars film sagas. Everyone has a chance to get their hands on this pet, allowing them to show off their mutual appreciation for Bad Robot, and the stories they’ve brought to our TVs and movie screens.
      To express their respect for JJ Abrams' production company, Blizzard will be adding a new mechanical pet into the game, in a future patch. This pet will be created by Engineers.

      I would like to know if a Death Knight engineer or a Warrior engineer can learn how to make the following item: Specialized Bio-Optic Killshades.
      If they can't, then I need to update the transmogrification guides for these two classes so that they no longer display this item.
      Many thanks in advance!

      Engineering is my favorite profession by far. Not that I make much money from it or that it's awesome for raiding, but I love all the cool stuff it brings (funny enchants that backfire, cool mounts, jeeves, portable mailbox, auction house in Dalaran, etc.).
      When Blizzard announce Cogwheel Gems, at the beginning of Cataclysm, I was quite excited. Naturally, I got myself Lightweight Bio-Optic Killshades and used them until I eventually replaced them with the heroic version of Power Generator Hood.
      I was expecting Patch 4.2 or Patch 4.3 to bring an upgraded version of the Bio-Optic Killshades line, but this did not happen. Now, Cogwheel Gems have faded into oblivion.
      For me, Cogwheel Gems were a major and exciting change that the Engineering profession underwent in Cataclysm (together with the new way of learning tinkers). For Mists of Pandaria, it does not seem that Cogwheel Gems are going to return, so I guess Blizzard deemed them a failure and I wish it hadn't been so.
