Engineering = Death From Above

Today I’m going to write about one of the joys of being an Engineer. You see the other day I was doing the Dangerously Delicious fishing quest in Wintergrasp.

I’m minding my own business when all of the sudden a hunter’s mark appear above my head and then bang, bang, I’m dead πŸ™ . I’m not the only one he’s doing this too, and before you know it we’re all rezzed and he’s hopelessly outnumbered.  He’s also way up in the air safe on his flying mount; or so he thought πŸ™‚ .

With revenge on my mind, I grab my flying mount and fly into the air going above him, but staying in max range.  I dismount, fire off a Black Arrow (a nice 15 second DoT he can’t do anything about).  I continue to drop, and am still in range after the GCD is up.  I fire off an explosive shot (another two second DoT he can do nothing about).

I then pop my parachute just in time to see his health drop to zero as I float safely to the ground.  It was a good day to be an Engineer indeed.

My apologies in advance for the lack of screenshots or video for this one.  I’ll try to be better prepared next time, as this was so much fun, I’m sure there will be a next time. πŸ™‚

Good Aerial Hunting!

  1. I've been doing this for a while now. Keep in mid that you can shoot WHILE THE CUTE IS OPEN. Floating by gragefully, while dealing death for 15 seconds.

    I'm in a pvp server, so there is none of this "flagged or not flagged." Death is always present. Its also nice to fly above the masses, where you can watch track humanoids below.

  2. So, the flying rotation is

    black arrow, explosive shot, parachute…

    i was trying starting with explosive but never works, i see now why
