Engineering 300, now what?

After two months of being stalled at engineering 150, Deadicus, (lvl 58 horde warrior) decided to hit the books hard and get to 300. Four hours later………. DING, goblin engineering 300. Now what?

I own the schematic for XL Jumper Cables (working on) and can already make +5 scopes and thorium shells. I’m already bidding on the schematics for +7 scopes, Major Discombobulator and Arcane Bombs. My problem? I’m so overwhelmed by all the engineering options thart I don’t know where to begin. Do I make all sorts of bombs, target dummies, gernades, landmines and mechanical dragonkin and pull a Rambo on Azeroth. Can one carry all this gear and fight effectively or is it all for show? Is it best to arm yourself with every gadget under the sun or a few select goodies?

Any 300 engineers with actual combat XP have any suggestions, theories or crazy stories about their exploits?

    I went gnomish. Mainly to get the teleport ot tanaris. But I also think the recipes for world enlargers and dicomobulaors are alot more fun. Of course my pack is always full of crap I rarely use. :)

    While I’m not an engineer, I know that the 300 engineers enjoy using all the trinkets in PvP scenarios, since it offers them so many options.

    EZ-Throw dynamite (the kind which doesn’t require engineering to use) and scopes tend to be what most the engineers I know make for selling on the AH. The engineers in my guild make jumper cables and repair bots for use in our raids, too.

    I took goblin engineering mainly for the comedy explosives ;-) but without doubt, the most useful engineering schematics you can get are:

    Powerful Seaforium Charge (http://www.thottbot.com/?i=37167) – opens lots of locked instance doors like DireMaul and Scholomance

    Field Repair Bot 74A (http://www.thottbot.com/?sp=22705) – creates a robot that repairs trashed armour and lets you vendor trash items. Indispensible in large instances. Expensive repair bills though, shame you don’t get a cut ;-)

    Thorium Shells (which you already have). A good cash maker. There’s a tauren wandering round Og who will convert them to Thorium headed arrows for free.

    It’s been mentioned before, but my 300 Engineering list is simple. Unlike you, I am a clothie, so I invested in heavy boom and some decent bang, rather than the goblin side of things of turning a Warrior into a Plate wearing Mage.

    Shells and Arrows, of course. Lots of money can be made of a cheap lowbie item, the Deadly Blunderbus, since it’s used in a quest every Horde wants to do.

    Field Repair bots make you the center of attention, but are expensive to make. You’ll need Fused Wiring, and that drops rarely, mostly off the mechabots in Gnomer and dying Target Dummies.

    If I ever see you wield a Force Reactive Disk (http://www.thottbot.com/?i=39944) in a raid with us, I’ll make you open Hoodoo piles in ZG until you stop, but for small groups without CC and for Solo, that thing is indispensable. And it sells well.

    Make a lot of bombs, stun and blow the living crit out of people, and you’ll own in PvP.
