  • Cast time: 5 sec

Invisibility Field is an engineer tinker which provides 15 seconds of invisibility. It is applied to the engineer's belt, and can only be activated when out of combat. This tinker is discovered while crafting other engineering items; it is not learned from the trainer or a schematic. It stacks with [Eternal Belt Buckle], but not with enchants.

The engineer may move around freely while invisible. Most other actions, such as casting spells, will terminate the effect. Also, it may spontaneously end prematurely due to a malfunction.

Materials required:

This tinker can backfire, resulting in one of the following:

  • Dazzled - It makes all players and NPCs invisible, even ones in your party! But they can still see you.
  • Field Disruption - the effect ends prematurely and gives off a loud electric jolt.


The invisibility field is of limited use in dungeons and battlegrounds, because it cannot be used in combat. It is useful for sneaking through certain areas, but beware of mobs that can see through invisibility.

It may be applied to a "spare" belt, to be equipped prior to use. The engineer must then wait 30 seconds before it can be used.
