Field Repair Bot 74A

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:
Inv ingot 07
16x [Thorium Bar]
Inv misc gear 03
2x [Fused Wiring]
The raw materials are:
Inv ore thorium 02
16x [Thorium Ore]
Inv ore copper 01
6x [Copper Ore]
Spell fire volcano
2x [Essence of Fire]

Note: Inv ore copper 01 [Copper Ore] needs to be smelted into Inv ingot 02 [Copper Bar] and crafted into Inv misc gear 03 [Fused Wiring], but you will have 3 Inv misc gear 03 [Fused Wiring] left over.

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.

TCG icon 16x36 This section concerns content exclusive to the World of Warcraft TCG, and thus is not necessarily canon.

It appears in the TCG icon 16x36 TCG expansion Through the Dark Portal and has the following on its card:

Field Repair Bot 74A

  • Set: Dark Portal
  • Type: Ally - Unique
  • Cost: 1
  • ATK/Health: 0/2
  • Race: Repair Bot

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 like the Inv misc enggizmos 01 [Field Repair Bot 110G] from Patch 2.3 and Inv misc enggizmos 14 [Scrapbot Construction Kit] from Wrath-Logo-Small Wrath of the Lich King.
