WoW Classic Engineering Guide 1-300


Engineering is perhaps one of the most fun crafting jobs in World of Warcraft, and creating contraptions that can be used in combat or just for simple vanity makes most of the craftable items in this profession very practical. However, most of the things engineers tend to be zany and fun. Due to the amount of helpful gear that can be made in this profession, many gamers are looking for a comprehensive WoW Classic Engineering guide to start their career in this field.

Why Should Players Become Engineers?

Due to the number of gizmos that Engineers can make, they can create many items that are helpful in various situations. These inventions can be used in a variety of creative and chaotic ways. From throwing bombs to flying away from the field using contraptions, the ability of Engineers to unlock new skills makes gameplay more entertaining. 

How to Become an Engineer?

As one of the 12 crafting fields in the game, players can easily access this content by talking to certain NPCs. However, adventurers need to have a lvl 5 character before participating in this content. For the Engineering profession, gamers should locate a guard in any capital city. These NPCs will provide adventurers to the Engineering trainers residing within the area. The trainers will initiate players into the profession right away. 

Players should note that certain professions will significantly help or complement Engineering. Mining is the best complementary field since it allows Engineers direct access to many crafting materials. Eventually, Engineers can pick their specialization, which can either be the Gnome or Goblin line. 

There is no requirement for entering this field. However, a Gnome character will significantly help one become an excellent Engineer. This race provides additional +15 attributes to Engineering due to their Engineering Specialization.

Some classes benefit more from entering this profession. Jobs such as Hunters, Paladins, Rogues, Warriors, and Shamans can enhance their playstyle due to the contraptions made in this field. These items include the Gnomish Battle Chicken, Bombs, and Sapper Charges. 

Engineering Ranks and Levels

As gamers enter their engineering careers, they will eventually hit certain milestones at specific levels. These level caps also prevent players from leveling any further, so they will require additional skills from trainers to enable them to progress. Here are all the rankings and levels for this profession:

  • Apprentice – Level 1 to 75
  • Journeyman – Level 75 to 150
  • Expert – Level 150 to 225
  • Artisan – Level 225 to 300

Engineers benefit from higher levels by allowing them access to more recipes and gaining more abilities to create higher quality materials.

Engineering Trainers’ Locations

Aspiring players will often visit Trainers to progress through their training. There will be assigned NPCs for each faction, so the content is not locked behind which group players are a part of. Here are all the trainers in the world of Azeroth:


  • <Journeyman> Bronk Guzzlegear at Steelgrill’s Depot in Dun Morogh
  • <Journeyman> Deek Fizzlebizz at Stonewrought Dam in Loch Modan
  • <Journeyman> Sprite Jumpsprocjet at the Dwarven District in Stormwind

How to Craft Items 

Creating items in this profession is simple, and it only needs simple tools and interactions. Aside from materials such as metal, gamers need a place to craft inventions. Here are the steps for making Engineering Items:
