Repair bot

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Repair bots are engineer-made mechanical creatures that can buy unwanted goods, sell reagents and (what is most important) repair gear. They are typically consumed upon use. ( [Jeeves] is currently the sole repair bot that is not consumed on use.)

As they can be summoned at need (albeit with a cooldown period and often consuming a copy of the bot), they can save great amounts of time on raids and in instances.

The repair bot was first invented by Gelbin Mekkatorque.[1]

Varieties

[Field Repair Bot 74A]

16x  [Thorium Bar]
2x  [Fused Wiring]

Significantly more expensive to use than a vendor (any vendor). Some may consider the schematic for the Field Repair Bot 74A to be the most rare element due to its obscurity. Consumed upon use.

[Field Repair Bot 110G]

  • Recipe found: drops from Gan'arg Analyzers
  • Required engineering skill: 360
  • Materials:
8x  [Adamantite Bar]
8x  [Handful of Fel Iron Bolts]
1x  [Khorium Power Core]

Introduced in Patch 2.3.0, using this bot is still more expensive than a vendor, but much cheaper than the 74A unit. Consumed upon use.

[Scrapbot Construction Kit]

  • Recipe found: quest reward for completing the quest chain started by the [SCRAP-E Access Card]
  • Required engineering skill: 415
  • Materials:
10x  [Saronite Bar]

Introduced with Patch 3.0.2, this bot is about as expensive to use as a neutral vendor. As it uses Northrend materials, it is generally considered easier to make than the 110G unit. Consumed upon use.

[Jeeves]

  • Recipe found: salvaged from various mechanical mobs in Northrend.
  • Required engineering skill: 450
  • Materials:
2x  [Field Repair Bot 74A]
10x  [Field Repair Bot 110G]
20x  [Scrapbot Construction Kit]
8x  [Titansteel Bar]
2x  [King's Amber]
30x  [Handful of Cobalt Bolts]

Introduced in Patch 3.2.0, Jeeves is a departure from the previous line of repair bots. Unlike the previous generations of repair bots, Jeeves is not consumed upon use. The high material requirements reflect this.
