Tinker - Engineer

One thing I loved in WoW was the Engineering profession before it became useless in the recent years.

I would like to see a Tinker or Engineering profession so we can create cool gadgets and toys. Such as smoke bombs, flares, deployable fences for caravans.

What kind of cool toys and gadgets do you all want?

  • going to have to say i like dwarven inventions such as turrets and mechanical pets. they are always fun :P
  • Same here that is why in WoW my first character was a dwarven hunter with engineering :D

    Also in GW2, I played and engineer at first because I saw those turrets!
  • I think tinkers are fun, but whether it should be in game depends alot on the level of "steam punk" in the game (if you can call it that). Are there pipes, gunpowder, gears etc.? It wouldn't fit the period, but it might be fun anyway. Kinda like how WoW is medieval, but still has a bunch of steampunk elements.

    But unfortunately I'd imagine this is not the case for AoC, so maybe Engineers build siege equipment, bridges or houses, something along those lines :)

    very true, it would have to be in lines with the lore.
  • Whilst it's a great idea, technology in this game has to have it's limits. We are living in a medieval univers.
  • I agree technology should be limited, but then again it is a world with alchemy and magic.

    If there is alchemy there must be some sort of powder they can use to create explosives, or some magic technique to create rifle type weapons. Maybe a new science tree of mix with magic.

    To be completely honest, I just love rifles/musket in fantasy games. Nothing fancy but a weapon that can replace bows and xbows I'm happy with.

    I hope the Dwarves in this game lean a bit more on the tech side :D

    Also being able to create siege weapons, bridges would be awesome! Maybe heavy rain destroys a bridge on a caravan route and you need an engineer to repair it.
