MoP Engineering: Everything's Better with Explosions!

With the Beta winding down, there's not a whole lot left that needs testing or documenting. I'm still putting finishing touches on my database, but for the most part I'm not turning up new goodies. I did manage to spot one new thing this week that I thought I'd share.

I was reviewing my Engineering recipes and noticed that Blizzard is showing a few schematics for fireworks that I never located. The recipes had no source location in Blizzard's list either. After reading the tooltip, I decided to take a shot in the dark. I crafted the Pandaria Fireworks on the off-chance that I might discover one of the other items. And it worked!! Kinda :)


Turns out that when you craft the Pandaria Fireworks - you end up with a packet (see pic above) that has a random stack of fireworks inside. These can be any of the new Panda fireworks. But it can also include a schematic for one of the other types of fireworks! I didn't get any duplicate recipes, but I did make a few packets that had no schematic. I would say it took me 7-8 tries to get all five recipes. You only need 3 gunpowder to make the Pandaria packet, so it's a fairly cheap way to pick up new schematics.

Here are the recipes I discovered:








I don't think the artwork is integrated on these items though, because the effects don't match the tooltip. So I can't really say how they look, but the tooltips make it sound pretty nifty :)

  1. Hey Kaliope ;D I'm wondering if you're going to do mining and herbalism again before the game launches? :D

    1. Yes, I did both of the retests a couple of weeks ago. The Herbalism guide has been updated, you can see the new comments at the end. The Mining guide still needs revisions - I have notes that I haven't rolled into the guide yet.

      When MoP launches I'll be posting a HUGE compilation list with all of the guides linked into one post. So don't worry about having to dig through all these articles, I'll make it easy to find what you need (damn, I'm a goblin now!).

  2. Hi Kaliope, did yo notice if any of these schematics would provide an easier way to level up (particularly in the high 500s) engineering?
    Cheers, Jaf

    1. No, it looks like these recipes will be yellow @ 525 and green around 535. These would take the place of some gunpowder if you opted to make some. But since they require gunpowder, it would probably be a waste of mats. You need over 100 gunpowder to reach 600 and this recipe would just eat up the ones you're cranking out for later usage.

      You can certainly use them if conserving mats isn't an issue tho :) I know I probably will make some so I can unlock the recipes.
