Love seeing the old Goblin Rocket Helmet come back in the form of Supercollide-O-Tron. Not sure I like having to pick only 2 effects, but hey maybe that will be better than the assortment of mostly useless items we usually get.BUT... THEY BETTER NOT BE TAKING AWAY MY GOBLIN GLIDER, NITRO BOOSTS AND LOOT-A-RANG. These better not take up a "slot" and can still be used. I personally find them ESSENTIAL. They add so much to gameplay and have been mainstays for years. It sucked hard when we had that legendary cloak in BFA that couldn't get the gliders for instance.Can anyone confirm if they still work? - Engineer since 2004
this sounds 100% awful guess i wont be to be using my tinkers unless i spend hundreds of hours grinding out the best crafted wrists to compete with my mythic raid gear, ima just roll a new profession well done bliz....
Seems like they overengineered this one.
Absolutely terrible. So now we can't use these things unless we have an engineering item with a socket, and we don't have that until we manage to level engineering up high enough to make it. And then later on in the expansion, like in all expansions, we'll get gear better than the stuff we can make with sockets and we'll lose access to this stuff again. Basically, jumper cables will now be DF only and only for a brief part of DF. Massive nerf to the profession. I really hate this game sometimes.
engineering = trash now
I hate when they pull stuff like this. It's exactly like when they nerfed the Waterstrider mount and then gave us "inflatable mount shoes".... plus a couple of other choices to tempt us to give up being able to walk on water. Dear Blizzard, We are sick and tired of your weird fixation on mEaNiNgFuL cHoIcEs. We just want to play your game and have fun, not lament that we had to give up X to get Y. Kindly knock it off. Sincerely, A paying subscriber since 2005.
Stupid idea given the low ilevel of the crafted gear , so how does this work in M+ when you want to res someone , but you cannot equip your helm or wrists with the jumper cables ? How is it that Blizzard can't see issues with this when they are the bloody designers !
So not only are you stuck with using crafted gear, but you are REALLY stuck with crafted bracers since locking a tier slot down (helmet) is suicide early into a patch.
