Gnomish vs Goblin Engineering
World of Warcraft is one massive multi player role playing game that is perhaps the most popular online game in the world. It is an addictive game that makes one play hours at stretch, and soon players reach higher levels and the game becomes even more interesting. Any player joining this game has to choose a profession for himself. Whether one chooses engineering or farming as his profession, the ultimate aim is to make as much as possible gold which gives one more controlling power in this game. Even engineering as a profession can help in its basic form up to levels 30 or so, and afterwards, an engineer, to craft more things has to choose between Goblin and Gnomish engineering. Not all players know the different aspects between Goblin and Gnomish engineering, which is what this article tries to highlight.
The most notable difference between the two types of engineering lies in the fact that each allows a different set of crafts that player can make. There are items that can be crafted by both engineers, items that can be crafted by Goblin engineers, and items that can be crafted by only Gnomish engineers. However, the thing to remember is that once you have taken a decision to be goblin or Gnomish engineer you cannot go back on your choice, which is why it is an important decision to make in the game.
If you decide to become a Goblin engineer, you travel up to Gadgetzan to meet master Goblin engineer. He will give a task that involves making 20 big iron bombs, 20 solid dynamite, and 5 explosive sheep. When you craft all items and return to him, you are inducted as a member of the goblin Engineer society. On the other hand, if you choose to become a Gnomish engineer, you need to travel up to Booty Bay to meet master Gnomish engineer who will give a different task that involves making 6 Mithril tubes, 2 advanced target dummies, and 1 accurate scope. Upon completing the task, you are inducted as a Gnomish engineer.
What is the difference between Gnomish and Goblin Engineering?
Talking of differences, as a Goblin engineer, you can hope to learn to make smart explosives and even rocket launcher. Goblin devices always work and never fail, which is often the case with Gnomish devices. Goblin devices always inflict serious damage or even kill. As a Gnomish engineer, you can learn to make bizarre devices that can allow you to take control of minds of others or to turn someone into a chicken. The only problem with Gnomish tricks is that devices do not always work as you desire, and there is a high failure rate with gnomish devices than Goblin devices.
