Q u o t e:
There has been a lot of discussion on the forums lately about the utility of various trade skills and how people feel they should be working. Much of the feedback we have received points to trade skills needing a little work and some better utility for those that choose to take them up. While we can’t give you specifics on what is planned or even dates on when players can expect change, we wanted to let everyone know that all trade skills are being looked at and will be revamped over time. Engineering will be the first on the list, but all trade skills are being closely looked at and player feedback is a welcome part of that process.

I'm sorry but a frost grenade, a part to make the frost grenade, and 1-2 new helmets that each class can wear is not considered a revamp. It's not even close to starting to revamp something. Did you guys even pay attention to the engineering suggestion threads? There were hundreds of good ideas in there that would easily fit into the profession without overpowering it and you completely ignored every single one of them. You said that now was the time to post suggestions and yet engineers were ignored so I ask what was the point of telling us to post suggestions if you're not even going to seriously acknowledge them?
For those that would quote "[t]his list does not contain all of the upcoming changes, but instead gives a brief look at what is to come," why don't you check CM's track records with this statement. Many of them use this statement as a blanket statement even if it is all that will be seen. Tseric for instance used this statement during TBC beta when engineers first complained about the profession seeming pretty worthless. I remember his response was that not all the schematics had been found yet and that by the time TBC launched there would even be many more to find. Well TBC launched and all the schematics that engineers received were the ones which had already been found during the beta. Statements like those don't hold any credibility when they are always found to be false.
