Reality in a Fantasy game....is extremely dumb.
We get Proto drakes mailed to us...where's the logic in THAT??
"UPS. Where you want your proto-drake?"

give me a break, engineering was so OP that it was pretty much a must have for many people in PVP. if it is this powerful, something needed to be done about it.
..and it has been.
"Rocket Fuel Leak" was specifically meant as an alternative failure for dungeons, raids, and battlegrounds so we weren't launching people up into unknown invisible (or otherwise) roofs and getting them stuck or allowing content exploitation. In 4.1 it was fixed so that this failure was actually properly going off in these specific types of content.
Reevaluating the damage though, we're going to apply a hotfix to bring it down quite a bit (it won't be able to kill you outright anymore). Keep an eye on the hotfix blog as it'll be added once it goes through: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/2690293#blog
But the fact that engineering is the only profession that has enchants that can fail has always confused me.

7 second duration.
18000 damage absorbed.

04/28/2011 07:53 AMPosted by TyrathiusI have thought about this at length. The only conclusion I have been able to reach is that the Devs are sadists, and enjoy tormenting us by providing us with the option of using our tinkers, but only by risking a raid wipe. If they truly thought it was OP they'd nerf or remove them. Likewise, as no one in their right mind could possibly find "chance on use: you die" to be fun, the tinkers can only be there to limit the profession and annoy the players who pick it.
