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.

Varieties

Field Repair Bot 74A

  • Recipe found: Blackrock Depths, near Golem Lord Argelmach, on the floor. The schematic is not a bag item. To learn it, engineers will have to visit Blackrock Depths and pick up the schematic themselves.
  • Required engineering skill: 300
  • Materials:
16x Inv ingot 07.png [Thorium Bar]
2x Inv misc gear 03.png [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 Inv ingot titansteel blue.png [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.

The Traveler's Tundra Mammoth features a repair vendor riding one of the seats. While this mount cannot be summoned in most instances, its vendor performs much the same function as a repair bot.
