Engineering is the best combined with Mining, if you level Engineering and Mining together you will save a lot of gold. If you don't have Mining you will have to buy everything from the Auction House.

Classic WoW Engineering Trainer Location
To become an Apprentice Engineer you need to reach level 5 and find an Engineering trainer.
Visit any trainer in the main cities of Azeroth. You can walk up to a guard in any city then ask where the Engineering trainer is. (Orgrimmar, Undercity, Thunder Bluff, Ironforge, Stormwind, Darnassus)
I recommend Roxxik in Orgrimmar or Springspindle Fizzlegear in Ironforge because they can teach you Expert Engineering so you can stay in one place until you reach 200. Trainers in other major cities will only teach you Journeyman recipes so you will have to go to Orgrimmar or Ironforge anyway.
Leveling Classic Engineering
Buy a Blacksmith Hammer from the Blacksmith supply vendor, it's usually near your trainer. (or any general/trade goods vendor)
- 1 - 30
60 x Rough Blasting Powder - 60 Rough Stone
You might even reach 40 with this recipe. You will need the 60 Rough Blasting Powder later, so keep these.
- 30 - 50
30 x Handful of Copper Bolts - 30 Copper Bar
You will need around 30 of these later.
Journeyman Engineering (50 - 135)
Visit your trainer again, and learn Journeyman Engineering.
- 50 - 51
1 x Arclight Spanner - 6 Copper Bar
You will use this to craft engineering recipes so keep it.
- 51 - 75
30 x Rough Copper Bomb - 30 Copper Bar, 30 Handful of Copper Bolts, 60 Rough Blasting Powder, 30 Linen Cloth
- 75 - 90
60 x Coarse Blasting Powder - 60 Coarse Stone
- 90 - 100
20 x Coarse Dynamite - 60 Coarse Blasting Powder, 20 Linen Cloth
- 100 - 105
5 x Silver Contact - 5 Silver Bar
- 105 - 120
25 x Bronze Tube - 50 Bronze Bar, 25 Weak Flux
Weak Flux is sold by Engineering Supply vendors near your trainer.
- 125 - 135
10 x Standard Scope - 10 Bronze Tube, 10 Moss Agate
Start making Heavy Blasting Powder if you don't have any Moss Agate, or it's really expensive.
Expert Engineering (135 - 200)
- 135 - 150
- 30 x Heavy Blasting Powder - 30 Heavy Stone
- 15 x Whirring Bronze Gizmo - 30 Bronze Bar, 15 Wool Cloth
- 150 - 160
15 x Bronze Framework - 30 Bronze Bar, 15 Medium Leather, 15 Wool Cloth
Keep these too.
By making them now, you might get a lot further - probably towards 160, then stop making these and only make more when you'll need them.
- 160 -175
15 x Explosive Sheep - 30 Heavy Blasting Powder, 15 Whirring Bronze Gizmo, 15 Bronze Framework, 30 Wool Cloth
Keep 5 of these, you might need it if you choose Goblin Engineering at 200.
- 175 -176
1 x Gyromatic Micro-Adjustor - 4 Steel Bar
Keep this, you will need it to craft some of the Engineering recipes.
- 176 - 195
60 x Solid Blasting Powder - 120 Solid Stone
Save these because you will need them later.
- 195 - 200
7 x Mithril Tube - 21 Mithril Bar
Stop making these when you reach 200. Keep 6 Mithril Tubes, because you might need them if you choose Gnomish Engineering at 200.
Artisan Engineering (200 - 300)
Go to Tanaris and find Buzzek Bracketswing in Gadgetzan, then learn Artisan Engineering. (He's standing right outside the Inn, on the left side, near the mailbox.) You need to be level 35 or higher otherwise he will tell you that you don't have the required level.
Engineering has the option at skill level 200 to specialize in Gnomish Engineer or Goblin Engineer. Some items require a specific specialization to use, while other items are crafted by one specialization but are usable by any engineer. Fortunately, most recipes that are crafted by one Specialization can be worn by both.
Full list of recipes:
You can start the quest for both Goblin and Gnome engineering from Tinkerwiz in Barrens at Rachet.
- 200 - 216
20 x Unstable Trigger - 20 Mithril Bar, 20 Mageweave Cloth, 20 Solid Blasting Powder
- 215 - 238

- 260 - 285
35 x Thorium Widget - 105 Thorium Bar, 35 Runecloth
This recipe will be yellow for the last few points so you might not reach 285. But you can just go to the next step. (you have to make a bit more from the next recipe)
- 285 - 300
20 x Thorium Tube - 120 Thorium Bar
I hope you liked this Classic Engineering leveling guide, congratulations on reaching 300!
