Sure, but what the hell does mages being OP (not agreeing, just restating what the OP said) have to do with cog wheels? Besides, who would want to use the cog wheels in a decent helm when they could use blue or purple red gems? I used cog wheels on my priest, until I got a good helm that warranted putting in real gems. IIRC, cog wheels are only secondary stats. Blue or purple red gems would be a much better DPS boost. He does make a valid point about making professions more usable though.
