Cogwheel Sockets

Professions
Post Limit:
Are they ever going to let engineers engineer gear that drops so a socket can take a cogwheel? Make it like a JC gem type of thing but since the cogwheels are much stronger only let us use 2 gems in our gear. Engineering is so worthless past 359ilvl gear b/c there are no upgrades you get from it. Just a thought.
The goggles are a leveling perk for entry level raiding. They are NOT the profession perk. The profession perk for engineering, which is balanced against the same 80 stats as every other profession, is the synapse springs.

It is possible however, that engineers might see a cogwheel socket for the chest, just like BS can create sockets for belts. But the sockets would be available to everyone.
a better question is, Do you think Cogwheels will be in the next expansion?

<3 ;D
So let me get this straight as of right now cogwheels are worthless because there is no way to create or have a cogwheel socket.
Cogwheels were only a way to make sure you got the optimal stats you needed for your goggles without needing to create multiples per gear type, ie, multiple cloth goggles.

That way the substats are always the optimal ones for you. Prefer Hit and Mastery? That's what they have. Prefer Haste and Crit? Well, they can have that too! Are you a Healer who wants Haste and Spirit? Then these goggles are for you. Spirit and Mastery? By all means! Goggles can have any combination of substats that you want due to cogwheels, without the need for reforging 60% of a lesser stat to your more optimal one.
