Why is Engineering Useful in Shadowlands?
What’s not to love about Engineering, especially when they’re bringing back all of the unpredictable backfires and unfortunate catastrophic events?
- Engineering returns to Shadowlands with an array of useful items to create, including two Optional Reagents and an all-time favorite, an item to resurrect players!
- Belt enhancements are back, though you can only use them on yourself.
- Once again, Oribos has an auctioneer only engineers can use!
Engineering profits in Shadowlands
- Easy auctioneer access without necessity of having Brutosaur
- Good potential for goldfarm
- The ability to craft helmets for all types of armor
- The ability to craft bombs that can be useful in PvP and PvE content
Shadowlands Engineering Trainer Location
You can learn Shadowlands Engineering from Machinist Au’gur in
There are no Forges or Anvils in the Engineering area of the Hall of Shapes. You will need to go a short distance north to the blacksmithing/mining area for these features
You will need some kind of tool to craft most engineering items. These tools are:
- Blacksmith Hammer – Sold by Engineering or Blacksmith supply vendor.
- Arclight Spanner – Requires 50 skill in Vanilla Engineering to craft.
- Gyromatic Micro-Adjustor – Requires 175 skill in Vanilla Engineering to craft.
- High-Powered Bolt Gun – Requires 15 skill points in Cataclysm Engineering to craft.
To save some bag space, I highly recommend getting a Gnomish Army Knife. It replaces all of these tools, so you only have to carry one item with you.
Approximate Materials Required
- 330 x Laestrite Ore
- 200 x Porous Stone
- 24 x Twilight Bark
- 30 x Luminous Flux – Sold by vendors.
- 30 x Machinist’s Oil – Sold by vendors.
- 15 x Oriblase
- 15 x Angerseye
- 20 x Shrouded Cloth
- 4 x Umbryl

|Precision Lifeforce Inverter||35 40 45 50||4x Laestrite Ore, 1x Mortal Coiled Spring, 4x Handful of Laestrite Bolts, 8x Twilight Bark|
Shadowlands Engineering Pet
What is interesting about this pet schematic is that it has a minimum level requirement of Engineering (115) to create. However, Engineering skill currently only goes up to 100 in Shadowlands.
Gnomes with their +15 to Engineering skill racial will be able to make this with a base skill of 100 without any modifications. Other races who wish to make this pet will need to equip one of the sets of Shadowlands Ectoplasmic Specs goggles to be able to create this pet, since the Specs all increase Engineering skill by 20.
|PHA7-YNX||115 117 120||15x Wormfed Gear Assembly, 20x Mortal Coiled Spring, 25x Handful of Laestrite Bolts, 10x Elethium Ore, 10x Shaded Stone, 20x Luminous Flux|
Leveling Shadowlands Engineering
Guide for 1-25
You can buy Luminous Flux and Machinist’s Oil from Distributor Au’burk. They are not listed in the guide for most recipes since you can just buy a bunch of them from the vendor. He also sells a few Twilight Bark but in limited supply, so he won’t always have it.
Both of these will be used in most Shadowlands Engineering recipes, so make all of them now for “free” leveling points.
- 100 x Porous Polishing Abrasive – 200 Porous Stone
- 150 x Handful of Laestrite Bolts – 150 Laestrite Ore
Guide for 25 – 76
- 25 – 35
10 x Mortal Coiled Spring – 30 Porous Polishing Abrasive, 50 Laestrite Ore
- 35 – 41
3 x Precision Lifeforce Inverter – 12 Laestrite Ore, 3 Mortal Coiled Spring, 12 Handful of Laestrite Bolts, 24 Twilight Bark
- 41 – 46
5 x Mortal Coiled Spring – 15 Porous Polishing Abrasive, 25 Laestrite Ore
- 46 – 50
4 x Wormfed Gear Assembly – 16 Handful of Laestrite Bolts, 20 Porous Polishing Abrasive, 12 Laestrite Ore
- 50 – 55
5 x Disposable Spectrophasic Reanimator – 5 Wormfed Gear Assembly, 5 Mortal Coiled Spring, 20 Handful of Laestrite Bolts
- 55 – 76
21 x Wormfed Gear Assembly – 84 Handful of Laestrite Bolts, 105 Porous Polishing Abrasive, 63 Laestrite Ore
Guide for 76 – 91
Make 15 from one of these:
- 15 x Infra-green Reflex Sight – 15 Wormfed Gear Assembly, 75 Handful of Laestrite Bolts, 30 Oriblase
- 15 x Optical Target Embiggener – 15 Wormfed Gear Assembly, 75 Handful of Laestrite Bolts, 15 Angerseye, 15 Oriblase
Guide for 91 – 97
2 x Flexible Ectoplasmic Specs – 6 Wormfed Gear Assembly, 10 Handful of Laestrite Bolts, 4 Umbryl, 20 Shrouded Cloth
You can make any other goggles. (make the one that can be used by your class)
Guide for 97 – 100
It’s just simply not worth rushing to 100 with green recipes. So, I recommend doing the Engineering World Quest every few days for these last 3 points. They show up every 3-4 days. (check the world quest part above for more details) But, if you want to reach 100 faster, your only option is basically to make more Engineering Goggles.
Schematic: PHA7-YNX is the only recipe that you cannot craft anyway, and you can’t even buy the recipe until you reach Exalted reputation with the Ascended faction. Reaching exalted will probably take more than a month of grinding.
Where is the Anvil in Oribos?
You can find the anvils near the forge in the middle of the Hall of Shapes. A bit annoying, but you will have to walk back and forth from the anvil to the engineering trainer.
Engineering World Quests in Shadowlands
Each of the four Covenant zones has its own Engineering World Quests. You must have a Shadowlands Engineering skill of at least 25 for these to show up. Completing one of these quests rewards +1 Engineering , experience, and 125 reputation with the local zone faction.
If you are doing the normal storyline, these quests will not be available until World Quests open at level 60. Characters leveling through Threads of Fate with the appropriate skill level can do these starting at level 50, after choosing their Covenant and picking their first questing area.
For this reason, if you are leveling through Threads of Fate, I strongly encourage doing what you need to do to push any Profession skills to 25 as soon as you can to take advantage of these easy skill points, experience, and credit toward your zone completions.
- Bastion: Engineering: Power Hammer
- Maldraxxus: Engineering: Boneclad Stake Launcher
- Ardenweald: Engineering: Bug Zapifier
- Revendreth: Engineering: Duelist’s Pistol
Darkmoon Faire free +5 skill points
There is an event called Darkmoon Faire that appears in the game once a month, starting at 00:01 on the Sunday before the 1st Monday of each month. During the event you can complete quests for each profession.
The profession quests can only be completed once during each Darkmoon Faire and will grant 5 skill points (means you can complete them again once at the next faire).
The skillups will apply automatically to the most recent expansion profession progress that is not at its maximum. So, for example, if you want the +5 skill in Outland Engineering, but you have already learned other expansions profession skills, you have to max all of them out first, then you can get the +5 in Outland Engineering since that will be the only one that is not at its maximum.
Engineering – Talkin’ Tonks
Making Gold with Engineering in Shadowlands
There are a few useful engineering devices that anyone can use — namely, the 50UL-TR4P, Gravimetric Scrambler Cannon, and Momentum Redistributor Boots. With the ability to banish enemies, throw enemies into random directions, or jump onto enemies’ heads from a distance to do damage to them, havoc will definitely ensure — and will be especially fun in PvP situations. Tell your friends: don’t go into a Battleground without these!
There is also an Engineering-only pet, the PHA7-YNX, that will remain rare for quite awhile, since the recipe requires an Exalted reputation and the material requirements are fairly high.
As you can see, the amount of recipes is quite big, you have to spend a lot of time and gold to finish the leveling engineering. This is why, we kindly offer you to check out our wow professions boost services.
