Northrend Engineering Leveling Guide 1-75

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

Engineering is the best combined with mining, and I highly recommend leveling these professions together because it will be a lot easier to get the needed materials if you have mining.

Approximate Materials Required

Engineering Tools

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

I highly recommend getting a Gnomish Army Knife to save some bag space. 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.

Where to get The Gnomish Army

Leveling Engineering

You can learn Northrend Engineering from Timofey Oshenko at Dalaran (Northrend). (same NPC exists in Legion Dalaran, but he won't teach you Northrend recipes)

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 - 10

You will need around 50x Handful of Cobalt Bolts and 20x Volatile Blasting Trigger later. Make these now, and you should reach 10 or probably more. Note that when you craft Handful of Cobalt Bolts you can get 1 or 3 bolts, and the same goes for Volatile Blasting Trigger, you will get 2 each craft.

Keep all of these.

10 - 15

6 x Explosive Decoy - 6 Frostweave Cloth, 18 Volatile Blasting Trigger

You might have to make more.

15 - 26

15 x Froststeel Tube - 120 Cobalt Bar, 15 Crystallized Water

Keep these. You will need them later.

26 - 30

Note: If you completed the quest for Goblin Engineering, then you can use Global Thermal Sapper Charge to level between 25-60. You can learn this recipe from Didi the Wrench.

5 x Diamond-cut Refractor Scope - 5 Froststeel Tube, 10 Handful of Cobalt Bolts

Stop making this when you reach 30.

30 - 35

15 x Nitro Boosts - 15 Tinker's Kit

You can buy the Tinker's Kit from Bryan Landers near your trainer.

35 - 45

30 x Mind Amplification Dish - 30 Tinker's Kit

You can buy the Tinker's Kit from Bryan Landers near your trainer.

45 - 50

5 x Mana Injector Kit - 60 Saronite Bar, 10 Crystallized Water

You might have to make a few more to reach 50.

50 - 55

5 x Mechanized Snow Goggles - 40 Saronite Bar, 10 Borean Leather, 5 Eternal Shadow

You might have to make a few more to reach 55.

If you are planning on crafting the portable mailbox MOLL-E, you should craft it at 54 because it's still a guaranteed skill point. The goggles are getting close to turning green, so they have a lower chance to give you a skill point at 54.

55 - 60

5 x Noise Machine - 10 Froststeel Tube, 10 Overcharged Capacitor, 40 Handful of Cobalt Bolts

60 - 74

30 x Gnomish Army Knife - 300 Saronite Bar, 30 Skinning Knife, 30 Mining Pick, 30 Blacksmithing Hammer

This recipe will be green for the last 5 points, so you will probably have to make more than 30, but it should still be cheaper than making any other items, even if you have to make 10 for 1 skill point.

You can buy Mining Pick and Blacksmith Hammer from Bryan Landers near your trainer. The Skinning Knife is sold by Ranid Glowergold.

74 - 75

I recommend making a Wormhole Generator: Northrend for the last point. This toy will create a portal that lets you teleport to Borean Tundra, Howling Fjord, Sholazar Basin, Icecrown, or Storm Peaks.

Wormhole Generator: Northrend - 8 Titanium Bar, 2 Eternal Shadow, 2 Eternal Water, 2 Eternal Fire, 2 Eternal Air
