New Engineering Items in Wrath Beta!

I haven’t been able to confirm any of this yet.  I’ll do that as soon as I can. The list seems pretty underwhelming to me at this point.  No new goggles, no new pets, nothing earth shattering, but it’s early still.

I am happy that some of these items attach to your armor and don’t take up bag or trinket space.  But I’m curious if they overwrite the enchants that are already there or if engineering technology is a separate item modification? For instance I’d love to have the +haste from the Hyperspeed Accelerators but I wouldn’t want them to overwrite the +spellpower enchant on my gloves.

Engineering FTW!

Engineering FTW!

Here’s the list. The bold comments are mine.

Scrapbot – Creates a mechanical vendor that buys anything. The scrapbot leaves after 5 min.(Hopefully this is cheap to make. Will there be a new Repair Bot?).

Nitro Boosts – Permanently attaches overpowered nitro boosts to a pair of boots, allowing a skilled engineer to greatly increase run speed for until cancelled. The nitro boosts can only be activated every 5 minutes.

Gnomish Lightning Generator – Generates a bolt of lightning to strike an enemy for 2250 to 2750 Nature damage. This entire device is made of metal, and the bolt occasionally hits you.

Belt-Clipped Spynoculars – Permanently attaches a pair of spynoculars to your belt, allowing you to see far away. Only a skilled engineer can use the spynoculars.(Hmm, our goggles already do this. Why would we put the function on a belt?).

Flexweave Underlay – Permanently attaches a flexweave underlay to a cloak, allowing a skilled engineer to turn the cloak into a parachute to fall slowly for 10 sec. The cloak can only be used every 5 minutes. (This is useful. Now I can make any cloak into a parachute cloak).

Heartseeker Scope – Attaches a permanent scope to a bow or gun that increases its ranged critical strike rating by 40.

Micro Stabilizer – Attaches a permanent micro stabilizer to a bow or gun that increases your ranged hit rating by 40.(Nice)

Hyperspeed Accelerators – Permanently attaches hyperspeed accelerators to a pair of gloves, allowing a skilled engineer to increase their haste rating by 340 for 8 sec. The gloves can only be activated every few minutes. (This could be very helpful. I wonder if it overwrites other enchants?).

Personal Electromagnetic Pulse Generator – Permanently attaches a high-powered device to your belt, allowing you to stun nearby mechanicals. Only a skilled engineer can activate the modified belt.

Saronite Grenade (45 yd range, instant) – Inflicts 540 to 900 Fire damage and incapacitates targets for 3 sec in a 3 yard radius. Any damage will break the effect. Unreliable against targets higher than level 90.

Saronite Bomb (45 yd range, instant) – Inflicts 1125 to 1875 Fire damage and medium siege damage in a 10 yard radius.E
