Field Repair Bot 74A is an Engineer-created robot that can be deployed anywhere. The item is consumed upon use. It essentially functions as a merchant with a repair ability: it can both completely repair gear and purchase items from players. It also sells minor Engineering components. It lasts for 10 minutes and there is a 10 minute cooldown on the robot so you can only deploy one at a time.

It was considered to be one of the most important engineering items in the game, especially useful for repairing entire raid groups without having to leave a dungeon.

Source Edit

Field Repair Bot 74A is crafted by Engineers with a skill level of 300.

The components are:
16x [Thorium Bar] 2x [Fused Wiring]
The raw materials are:
16x [Thorium Ore] 6x [Copper Ore]
2x [Essence of Fire]

Note: Copper Ore needs to be smelted into Copper Bar and crafted into Delicate Copper Wire by a jewelcrafter. The Fused Wiring can then be made by the engineer via [Schematic: Fused Wiring].

The schematic can be found on the floor near Golem Lord Argelmach in Blackrock Depths. Only engineers with 300 skill may learn the schematic after clicking on the item. Characters with a high enough level will be able to read the item without aggroing the boss.

Notes Edit

Instances introduced in later expansions have often featured shorter distances to repair vendors, making repair bots less vital. They are still a high value convenience item, as simply leaving to repair and return can take 5–10 minutes of a raid's time under optimal conditions. This particular repair bot is the first generation of such items, and has since been eclipsed by versions made available with later expansions.
