Engineering in WoW has always been a profession full of fun and dozens of useful gadgets. If you level it, you can create bombs, grenades, guns, resurrecting knives, and rocket boots, and there are just a few examples. In Wrath of the Lich King this profession became even more interesting, so let’s see all you need to know about this profession and the WotLK Classic Engineering Leveling process.
WotLK Engineering Bonuses and Benefits
First, we should overview the personal bonuses that Engineering gives players who level this profession in Wrath Classic. Let’s start with unique enchants, that can give you great stats, but can’t stack with normal enchants:
|Head||Mind Amplification Dish|
|Gloves||Reticulated Armor Webbing|
Hand-Mounted Pyro Rocket
Personal Electromagnetic Pulse Generator
Also, you should know about pretty good BoP glasses:
|Plate Tank||Armored Titanium Goggles|
|Plate Tank||Charged Titanium Specs|
|Mail Physical DPS||Truesight Ice Blinders|
|Mail Caster||Electroflux Sight Enhancers|
|Leather Physical DPS||Weakness Spectralizers|
|Leather Caster||Greensight Gogs|
|Cloth Caster||Visage Liquification Goggles|
Pretty impressive, don’t you think? But you should add to this list other benefits that make you a star in every group, like Jeeves and MOLL-E. A portable mailbox and an opportunity to repair your gear in the field are always welcome in Lich King Classic.
Don’t forget about Saronite Razorheads and Mammoth Cutters, Iceblade Arrow and Shatter Rounds, or the Armor Plated Combat Shotgun and the Nesingwary 4000, which looks like a pretty good way to gold making because these weapons and projectiles are a pre-raid priority for many players.
Also, engineers can craft mounts like Flying Machine and Turbo-Charged Flying Machine. But Wotlk Engineering new mounts Mekgineer’s Chopper and Mechano-hog are BoE, so you can trade them in Auction House or directly to some players.
In the end, we should add, that Engineering is definitely the BiS choice for all classes and almost all specializations in the game because of its unique enchantments and useful gadgets. They look pretty good in PvP and PvE both.
In Old World you can find WoW Classic professional trainers starting from locations like Durotar or Elvin Forrest. And of, course, you can find them in all Horde and Alliance capitals. In TBC trainers also will be waiting for you in starting zone Hellfire Peninsula, and Shattrath City sanctuary. The same with WotLK Classic Engineering trainers.
