Rocket Boots return as engineering enchant

ImageWith engineering being almost useless in PVE aside from the goggles and the repair bot, it seems that Blizzard are buffing engineering and giving them enchants.

In World of Warcraft before The Burning Crusade was released, engineering was mostly a PVP profession with very little worth for a raider. What made engineering useful in raids was the repair bot.

In The Burning Crusade, engineers were able to create unique headgear known as goggles that were very useful in both PVP and PVE. Engineers could also make potion injectors to combine 20 potions into one slot to free up bag-space but that was about it.

Now it seems for Wrath of the Lich King that Blizzard wants to make engineering, a previously almost useless PVE profession, more used in PVE. You will be able to enchant your gloves with an on-use ability known as Hyperspeed Accelerators for 340 haste rating for eight seconds. Furthermore farmers will be happy to hear engineers will receive a Scrapbot that will buy anything for five minutes until he disappears.

But what about PVP?

ImageAs you probably know by now, Rocket Boots Xtreme were previously disabled for Arena PVP as Blizzard thought they were too imbalanced for certain compositions, but Rocket Boots will return in Wrath of the Lich King in a new form known as Nitro Boosts.

Nitro Boosts is an on-use enchant engineers will be able to enchant on a feet slot giving you a speed boost for eight seconds or until cancelled. The sad news is they still require engineering to use, despite it being an enchant.
