WOTLK Classic Engineering Guide

WOTLK Classic Engineering Guide

If you’re enjoying World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Classic, then you’ve probably looked over the list of 11 different professions you can train your character in. These professions range in functions from Mining to Jewelcrafting, Herbalism, and much more. However, there is one profession that is clearly superior to the others for a number of reasons, and that profession is Engineering. This is a profession that starts out incredibly useful and becomes something that is nearly indispensable for many playstyles in both PvP and PvE.

When you’re attempting to reach the max level in the Engineering profession, it might be helpful to have some guidance on how to progress through those 450 levels. If you’re seeking that knowledge, just read on to peruse this WOTLK Classic Engineering Guide!

The Benefits of Being an Engineer

Like all professions, choosing to level yourself as an Engineer entitles you to quite a few bonuses, including some very impressive enchants that are unique to Engineering. It is worth noting though, that these unique enchants cannot be stacked with your standard array of enchants.

Mind Amplification Dish

Attaches a small dish to your helmet that gives you an extra 45 stamina and gives you a chance to mind control enemies.

Nitro Boosts

Bolts boosters to your boots that allow you to run much faster for 5 seconds and add 24 points to your critical strike.

Springy Arachnoweave

Adds springy Arachnoweave to your cloak, allowing you to use it as a parachute to fall safely for 30 seconds and adds 27 points to spell power.

Flexweave Underlay

Also allows you to use a parachute for 30 seconds but adds 23 points to agility.

Reticulated Armor Webbing

Adds 885 points to armor and attaches to gloves.

Hand-Mounted Pyro Rocket

Exactly what it sounds like. Fires a rocket that can deal up to 2020 fire damage. It has a 45-second cooldown between uses.

Hyperspeed Accelerators

Attaches accelerators to your gloves and increase haste by 340 points for 12 seconds. Has a one-minute cooldown.

Frag Belt

Allows you to throw a Cobalt Frag Bomb once every 6 minutes.

Personal Electromagnetic Pulse Generator

Attaches a device to your belt that can confuse mechanical beings once activated. Requires high engineering skills to activate.

Engineering Gadgets and Weapons

Aside from the unique enchants, the other reason you might want to level Engineering is to gain access to the awesome craftables the profession gets. Here are a few of those.


An incredibly helpful robot butler who can appear for up to 10 minutes (presumably until his batteries run out). He can perform tasks such as buying, selling, and most importantly, repairing gear. Has a 1-hour cooldown.


This is a portable mailbox that can be used for 10 minutes. Has a 2-hour cooldown.

Armor Plated Combat Shotgun

Does 181 – 337 damage and gives +42 stamina.

Nesingwary 4000

Does 254 – 472 damage.

Flying Machine Control

A flying mount that can only be used in Outland or Northrend. Also has a much faster version called the Turbo-Charged Flying Machine Control
