Classic WoW Engineering Leveling Guide 1-300

This Classic WoW Engineering Leveling Guide will show you the fastest and easiest way how to level your Engineering skill up from 1 to 300.

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.

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
  • 90 - 100
    20 x Coarse Dynamite - 60 Coarse Blasting Powder, 20 Linen Cloth
  • 105 - 120
    25 x Bronze Tube - 50 Bronze Bar, 25 Weak Flux

    Weak Flux is sold by Engineering Supply vendors near your trainer.

Expert Engineering (135 - 200)

Visit your trainer Roxxik in Orgrimmar or Springspindle Fizzlegear in Ironforge then learn Expert Engineering.

  • 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.

  • 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

    Save these.

  • 238 - 250
    20 x Hi-Explosive Bomb - 40 Mithril Casings, 20 Unstable Trigger, 40 Solid Blasting Powder
  • 250 - 260
    30 x Dense Blasting Powder - 60 Dense Stone

    You might need to make more than 30 to reach 260.

  • 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)

I hope you liked this Classic Engineering leveling guide, congratulations on reaching 300!
