WotLK Engineering 1-450 Guide

Engineering in WotLK Classic is still the most in-demand and useful profession for most classes. It provides great bonuses and allows you to create all kinds of devices that can come in handy in battle. In this guide, we will tell you how to level up Engineering in the WoW Wrath of the Lich King expansion, indicate the locations of craft trainers, list its features, and much more.

General information about the profession

To develop Engineering and craft various devices/tools, ore, metal ingots, and stones are used. Leveling up Engineering can be quite expensive if you buy all the necessary materials on the auction, so we recommend combining it with Mining. This way, you will save a lot of money and level up two professions simultaneously. In the future, you will be able to mine the resources you need for crafting and/or sell them on the auction.

Overall, Engineering can be described as a very popular profession that allows you to create explosives and unique devices that significantly enhance your character's effectiveness. It will be useful regardless of the type of content you are mastering: PvP or PvE.

How to learn engineering in WoW WotLK - Profession levels and tutors

Engineering has several levels of profession development:

Apprentice and Journeyman: You can learn basic engineering skills from any craft trainers in the capital cities of your faction. When you reach a major city, talk to the city guard and ask him to show you where the desired trainer is located. In the case of engineering, select the dialogue options "Profession Trainer" -> "Engineering". After that, a marker will appear on the map, indicating the location of the desired trainer. 

Artisan: To level up your crafting skill beyond 300, you need to go to an engineering trainer in Outland or Northrend. There, you can develop your mastery up to level 375. 

Master: To level up the profession from 375 to 450, go to Northrend and talk to one of the Grand Master engineers. You can see where to find these NPCs below.
