I heard that some items can also be used by the other but Im unsure which path to go down.

Goblin = Explosives. Slight chance of backfire Gnome = Interesting nooks and crannies greater chance of backfire --- Not changing sig untill "Kiss Me Where It Smells Funny" by Bloodhound Gang is added to RB or GH. Started 09/08/09

I'd prolly go with goblin. But I'm biased cause i like fire and love to blow **** up --- Not changing sig untill "Kiss Me Where It Smells Funny" by Bloodhound Gang is added to RB or GH. Started 09/08/09
Note that the above items are items that can only be MADE by their respective specs. That doesn't necessarily mean the other spec can't USE the item.
Neither spec is especially advantageous over the other; I'd go with whichever spec has items which seem more fun. For practicality purposes, Goblin engineering is superior. Gnomish engineering gets you a teleport to Toshley's Station and a teleport to Gadgetzan. Goblin Engineering gets you a teleport to Everlook and a teleport to area 52.
The Area 52 and Toshley's Station teleports cancel each other out, since they both transport you to essentially the same place, though Area 52 is slightly better than Toshley's station. The Everlook teleport is much better than the Gadgetzan teleport since Dalaran already has a portal that takes players to Tanaris.
So the Goblin teleporters are better than the Gnomish ones. Therefore, for practicality purposes you'd want to do Goblin engineering. However, Gnomish engineering provides entertaining items such as X-ray specs, world enlargers, shrink rays, etc. So what's more important to you: slightly fun but ultimately useless items, or a teleport to Everlook?

I believe Eng was proven to be the best profession if you use your saronite bombs every cooldown, which would make Eng/JC the best combination. --- "Chaos Is Not Entropy...Chaos Is Continual Creation." -Praxis Preparation For A Coming Darkness
