As of patch 3.3.3, this previously-BoP pet is now BoU, meaning you no longer need to be an engineer to obtain it. As of patch 3.1, the BoP schematic has roughly a 20% chance to drop from [27+]Arcane Nullifier X-21, [27+]Peacekeeper Security Suit and [28+]Crowd Pummeler 9-60 in Gnomeregan, enabling both gnomish and goblin engineers to obtain the schematic.

"...Flibbit, I can confirm that this pattern still drops.  I got engineering pattern for Lil' smokey and the pet bombling in the same run tonight..."


Same here, did it two days ago, both dropped. My engineer has something to do again :P.

This little guy is secret op! He dominates most wq due to minefield,sticky bomb and the missles are great against beast pets.

I just had one drop for me from a Blingtron 6000. So no need to be an engineer to make one, you just hafta be lucky.

Talents3777, aquatic pets take only half damage from damage over time effects due to their racial passive.

Can't find any evidence that the schematic still drops. I see the drop rates in Wowhead like everyone else, but think it's just old numbers. One of the three mobs listed doesn't drop any loot at all anymore (ever) and many, many Gnomeregan runs on my engineer have yielded nothing. No comments I can find on any site within the past year about finding the schematic, and I don't even see it on the AH anymore.


If anyone can confirm it still drops, would love to know about it - while the pet is easy to come by, this is the only crafted pet I can't make, and I'd like to fix that =)

While leveling this pet with a couple Crows against aquatics I noticed what appears to be a bug. The spells Toxic Smoke and Sticky Grenade only do 50% damage. 



Mechanical spells are weak against elementals, but should not be weak against aquatics, right? At first I thought it might be the Eternal Strider's Cleansing Rain weather effect but then I noticed it happened whether or not the weather effect was active.



I put in a bug report. Was I correct in doing so?

Decent minefield mech. But Blue Clockwork Rocket Robot has same moves and better breeds, while Warbot is much stronger and has Extra Plating, and even Darkmoon Tonk with same stats has one up due to having Ion Cannon instead of the Rocket. Also 260 speed wont be very useful with Batter, just too slow. Sticky Grenade can be fun though since it does hit through dodge and other avoids. Ok pet, but there are better Minefield users out there.

Cute little guy, just got the schematic to make him for my engineer from Gnomer and can't wait to make him! I guess the highest possible quality outcome is uncommon? I'm seeing both common and uncommon on AH but no rare/blue.

One of my Engie friends made this as a gift to me and I love him! Sure he's noisy and smoky but it just adds to his character, and I'm a Warrior Tauren so I won't be sneaking up on anything anyway.

From the 3.3.3 PTR Notes: The Pet Bombling and Lil' Smoky non-combat pets are no longer Bind-on-Pickup.

Can't wait to pick up some new pets!

This pet will be made Bind on Use soon, and won't be limited to engineers only. Assuming the materials won't change here is what you will need to have an engineer make one for you:

6 Copper Bars

Bring them to a jewelcrafter and have them make you
3 Delicate Copper Wires. Bring the wires to an engineer along with

2 Essences of Fire
2 Iron Bars
2 Mithril Bars
1 Gold Bar
1 Truesilver Bar
1 Core of Earth

This will result in 4 Fused Wirings left, use 1 for Pet Bombling.

Every guild I've raided with over the years has forbidden his use during raids due to his excessive noise and the fact that (in pre-Jeeves days) he looks just like a repair bot. It's a bummer because he's still a very cool and unique pet.

He's younger brother of Field Repair Bot 110G and younger coussin of Field Repair Bot 74A.
He's a noisy little fella, summon him and Crashin' Thrashin' Robot, use Toy Train Set and Piccolo of the Flaming Fire and don't wait long for effect on other raiders...

I'd like to retract my statement about this pet being annoying, I realized that I should be proud of the loud whirring of this pets motor, Gnome Engineering at its finest!

The sound he makes isn't a random siren. It's the sound of high-speed gears whirring around.

It's fun to bring him out in a raid. People will often comment nervously, trying to figure out where the noise is coming from.

Hands down still one of my favorite pets, and well worth having engineering for at the time. Though, if you get one, you'll most certainly have your fair share of complaints from individuals asking you to put it away do to the consistent noise it makes... That's okay though, just politely move away... or torment them by moving closer. Either way! Great pet.

This tiny peacekeeper security bot is often outfitted with the latest arcane nullifiers and crowd pummelers. Not for the environmentally minded.
