In this guide, Overgear will show you how to level your Engineering skills through all expansions Here you will find all information about profession levels, such as 1-300 Vanilla, 1-75 Outland, 1-75 Northrend, 1-75 Cataclysm, 1-75 Pandaria, Draenor 1-100, Legion 1-100 and BfA 1-175. This guide will be updated with a relevant section after Shadowland’s release.

What bonuses does Engineering have?


General Information

You will have to find a special trainer for each expansion. For example, you can learn Vanilla and Cataclysm engineering schematics from Roxxik for the Horde or Lilliam Sparkspindle of Alliance. To learn Outland recipes you need to visit Shattrath and find Engineer Sinbei of Scryers or Technician Mihila of Aldor.


To craft engineering items you need some tools, such as:

There is also a cool item – Ultimate Gnomish Army Knife which can be bought and sold at the Auction house, and it saves some space in bags. If you already have Draenor Engineering skills, then you’ll be able to craft its improved version – Ultimate Gnomish Army Knife. There is also a Northrend version – Gnomish Army Knife, but usually, it is more expensive to get.


The best way to get materials for each expansion is to buy them at the auction house. Otherwise, you will have to spend hours farming resources with mining or killing mobs for some special reagents, such as Cloth. 

Each Engineering skill of any expansion can be leveled in front of the Auction house. Of course, it requires a lot of gold to do so. Fulfill your gold stocks with Overgear and save your time!

  • The leveling of any Legion profession is a bit different. You will need to do a questline until the All Charged Up. The reward for this quest is a level 1 recipe for the Gunpowder Charge. It is also very important to get level 2 and 3 – they can be bought from The Widow in the Dalaran Underbelly. But here comes the most interesting part: these recipes require special currency –  Sightless Eye. To get 750 of them will take around 30 minutes of your time.
  • Dalaran Underbelly has 2 phases, which you can track by looking at your debuffs: Sewer Guards or No Guards. When guards are active there are several rares spawning in the area. Killing them will bring you around 60-90 Sightless Eyes. Farming rares for a while will get you those 750 Sightless Eyes.
  • Once it’s done you can buy both recipes: Gunpowder Charge level 2 and Gunpowder Charge level 3.
  • 140 x Rank 3 Gunpowder Charge – 140 x Leystone Ore, 2800 x Oversized Blasting Cap
