Engineering Guide 1 450 WotLK 3.3.5a
  • Author: milliondollarpuppy

  • Expansion: WotLK Classic

Welcome to Warcraft Tavern’s Engineering guide! In this guide, we’ll provide everything you need to max out your Engineering skill, from the materials required to level up your profession to the best recipes to follow.

Engineering is a standout profession as it is the best option for virtually every class/spec. Engineers can craft gear enhancements like Nitro Boosts and Hyperspeed Accelerators, and powerful helms for every armor class (Charged Titanium Specs, for example). Saronite Bomb is an important engineering consumable that lets any role add a little extra damage to their rotation. Finally, Engineers can construct a couple of different mounts, such as the Turbo-Charged Flying Machine from TBC or the newly introduced Mechano-Hog (H) and Mekgineer’s Chopper (A)

Because Engineering relies on smelted ore and stone, Mining is the gathering profession associated with this profession. In addition, you’ll occasionally use cloth dropped from monsters, as well as leather farmed with Skinning. WotLK Engineers also need crystallized elements found on the corresponding elemental and revenant mobs found throughout Northrend. .

Required Materials

Below you can find the materials you’ll need to level from 1-450, as well as a few tips and things to keep in mind.

  • Sometimes we will have to craft yellow recipes that don’t guarantee a level up on every craft, therefore the materials required are estimates, rather than exact figures.
  • Specific recipes will require items you have previously crafted, so check the lists before getting rid of crafts!
  • Some recipes aren’t taught by trainers, but instead are acquired from drops or vendors.

All of these things are accounted for in the materials listed below. Listed separately from the material list are those recipes not acquired from a trainer, but rather from a vendor or world drop.

Engineering Trainers

You can click on a Trainer’s name from the lists below to see its exact location. If you use TomTom, you can copy-paste the location and coordinates provided (after the name) to track down the trainer you need more easily. For example:

/way Orgrimmar 75.8 24.6

wow classic horde leveling guide Horde

wow classic alliance leveling guide Alliance

wow classic horde leveling guide Horde

  • Zebig – Hellfire Peninsula 54.8 38.6
  • Mack Diver – Zangarmarsh 34.0 51.0

wow classic alliance leveling guide Alliance

Wow Pandaren Crest Neutral

  • Both factions can train from Xyrol – Netherstrom 32.6 66.6

wow classic horde leveling guide Horde

wow classic alliance leveling guide Alliance

Wow Pandaren Crest Neutral

  • Both factions can learn Grand Master Engineering from the trainer in Dalaran, Timofey Oshenko 38.4 27.4

Training Route

Certain crafts need to be used later to further level up the profession. Other times, the materials can be bought from a vendor instead of the Auction House, or the crafting recipe is not acquired from a trainer. Some recipes turn yellow and as such do not have a 100% chance to level up your profession with every craft; this means some randomness enters the equation when it comes to materials. We indicate all of these situations with the following icons:

415-425
15 Mana Injector Kit

This step is very expensive – you can instead use Saronite Razorheads which requires only 2 Saronite bars.

Great feedback Eliyan, thank you! We’ve done some testing and agree, so we’re putting your suggestion into that section of the guide.

FYI I followed this suggestion and i only got 6 out of the 10 points (421) even with 5 extra saronite crafts. Ended up needing to do mana injectors to get to 425. But everything else was spot on, huge thanks for the guide.

“Make 3 more Volatile Blasting Trigger if you are a Goblin Engineer and want to make Global Thermal Sapper Charge for 225-230.”
should say 425-430 instead. very nice guide, helped me a lot 🙂

Error in the guide – you cannot make Handful of Fel Iron Bolts until 320 as stated in the guide, as they turn grey at 310.

425-430 Global Thermal Sapper Charge could work (1 saronite bar, 1 Volatile Blasting trigger) if you are goblin spec.

I had to make 50 saronite razorheads to get from 415-425. The estimate is way off.

Consider Small Seaforium Charge. It can save you some money cause Copper Modulator is super cheap in AH.

Journeyman 105-125 it tells us to craft 30 Bronze Tubes, but on the right and shopping list, it says to buy 25 weak flux instead of 30. Just a minor fault

No joke, I needed to craft 112 solid blasting powder, 60 extra for the last 2 freaking skillups 😍

35x Handful of Cobalt Bolts is not going to be enough for 375 skill, 90% of the time. It turns green and you have 10 crafts to get 5 skills. You should update it to be more bolts.
