You can change, but the Jumper Cables (despite the name) are available to both Gnomish and Goblin Engineers.

These are teh exclusive recipes available only to Goblin/Gnomish Engineers

The deal with the DX cables is you need to be Goblin to MAKE them, but any Engineer can USE them. So just ask for a Goblin engineer in trade and provide the mats and you'll be all set even if you're gnomish.

stick with gnomish

people think you can only rez with the goblin jumper cables but their wrong, get your engineering to 350 or somewhere in that area and use the gnomish army knife. which is almost every crafter item(skinning knife miners pick arclightspanner etc.etc.) it also has an effect that grandmaster engineers can use which is the same effect as the goblin jumpers. the upside is its not just jumper cables its also every basic item you need to craft engineering items(blacksmith hammer arclight spanner and all that) and it only takes up 1 space :D

Anyway, right now both are equal. In Wrath Goblin was better for melee characters and they were equal for ranged characters because of the Goblin-only Global Thermal Sapper Charge which did more damage than Saronite Bombs and could be substituted every five bomb uses(it has it's own 5 min CD and activates the regular bombs' 1 minute CD) but was targeted at your feet and hit you too.

I'd suggest being Goblin if you're melee in case they add something like the Global Thermal Sapper Charge again in the future, but if it does be sure to only use it when your healers can handle the extra damage. Do whichever you want if you're ranged.
