What will you be giving up Engineering for?
Why would it not be that good for PvE now? It's as good as it ever was, with the exception of the tanking hand tinker.
Rocket belt can fail in raids now and does so often, shooting you 100 ft into the air and making you slowly, slowly fall down. It puts you out of commission for a good 10 seconds, and has a good chance of killing/wiping you if you land right back in that defile/voidzone you wanted to get out of. For progression raiding, it simply isn't worth the risk.
Personally, I haven't decided yet. Probably Alch for the sick mount or BS.
But to the topic: Leatherworking, unfortunately ><.
But then the truth came out. I'm gonna stick with JC/BS, though leatherworking is looking legit. The nice thing they are doing with this expansion is making just about every profession viable, ex. Enchanting and Alchemy having strength buffs.
