Re: [WotLK] Goblin vs. Gnomish Engineering in WotLK?
Personally, I've always gone function over tricks. Regardless, 80% of what gnomish craft, can be used by goblin and visa-versa, it's just a matter of whether or not you can make it.
For example, I went Goblin for the functionality of it, but in all actuality, most crafted items are surpassed by end-game content anyways. Engineering is rarely used as a functional DPS due to the cost to do so, however some stuff comes in handy in pvp (extra stuns, etc).
Engineering is costly, time consuming, and mostly for fun- so if I had to do it all over again, I'd probably go gnomish.
I can't speak for WoTLK, however- there may be something amazing in goblin around the corner- it may be smart to level up and just wait to make the specialization.
