Cataclysm Engineering Leveling Guide 1 - 75

This Cataclysm Engineering leveling guide will show you the fastest way how to level your Cataclysm Engineering skill up from 1 to 75 as inexpensively as possible.

Engineering is the best combined with mining, and I highly recommend to level these professions together because it will be a lot easier to get the needed materials if you have mining. Often the materials are based on a case that you will gain one skill point for each craft. This won't happen, so you will have to get a few extra materials while you are leveling Engineering.

Approximate Materials Required

Cataclysm Engineering Trainers

You can learn Cataclysm Engineering from one of the trainers in the main cities of old Azeroth. If you are having trouble finding the trainer just walk up to a guard in any major city and ask where the Engineering trainer is. Asking the guard will place a red marker on your map at the trainer's location.

Engineering Tools

You will need some kind of tool to craft most engineering items. These tools are:

To save some bag space, I highly recommend getting a Gnomish Army Knife. It replaces all of these tools, so you only have to carry one item with you.

The Gnomish Army Knife also replaces Jeweler's Kit, Virtuoso Inking Set, Runed Copper Rod, so if you have any of these in your inventory, you can throw it out.

Leveling Engineering

Gnome characters have +15 Engineering skill because of their passive Engineering Specialization. An extra 15 Engineering skill means recipes stay orange 15 points longer, so you can save a lot of gold by doing lower level recipes for 15 more points.

1 - 45

Making these 3 recipes below should get you to 45, but you can make a few Safety Catch Removal Kit if you did not reach 45. Make the recipes in the same order as I listed them! 

  1. 30 x Handful of Obsidium Bolts - 60 Obsidium Bar

    You will use these in every recipe, so keep these for later.

  2. 15 x Electrified Ether - 30 Volatile Air

  3. Make as many Volatile Seaforium Blastpack as you can using all the Electrified Ether you got.

45 - 60

15 x Lure Master Tackle Box - 300 Elementium Bar, 60 Handful of Obsidium Bolts

You can also make Elementium Toolbox if you have a lot of Volatile Earth

Make Big Daddy between 50-60 or even up to 75 if you have Goblin Engineering.

60 - 75

15 x Heat-Treated Spinning Lure - 60 Elementium Bar, 15 Volatile Fire, 15 Handful of Obsidium Bolts,

I hope you liked this Cataclysm Engineering leveling guide, congratulations on reaching 75!
