This is a guide on how to train Engineering economically.

As this is intended to save you money, buy only the materials you are sure you will need. If you run out, buy more. It is only more cost-effective to gather your own materials rather than buying them if you make very little gold per hour (for example, if your main source of income are dailies or a gathering profession). Avoid having extras, but if you do, try to sell them back on the Auction House.

Alternative Path

Here is an alternative way of leveling from 300 to 350.

Skill Product Qty. Materials (Total/Covered) Notes
300 Handful of Fel Iron Bolts 80 See instructions below
Fel Iron Casing 40
Elemental Blasting Powder 1 Makes 4
320 Fel Iron Musket 10
330 Adamantite Grenade 5
335 Icy Blasting Primers 1 See instructions below.

Makes 10.

335 or 336 Frost Grenade 10
345 or 346 Felsteel Stabilizer 5 or 4

Make all of the Handful of Fel Iron Bolts (!!make these first!!), Fel Iron Casing, and Elemental Blasting Powder first. They should get you to 320 or very close. Save them you will need them later. If you didn't get to 320 make Fel Iron Bomb till you get to 320.

At 335 make 1 Icy Blasting Primers. Only 1 should give you enough for the Frost Grenade later.

Grand Master EngineeringEdit

Grand Master Engineering allows 450 maximum skill, requires level 65 and 350 skill.

Note: Items will go green quickly in this tier, some after only 5 points.

Skill Product Qty. Materials (Total/Covered)
350 Handful of Cobalt Bolts xx
370 Volatile Blasting Trigger xx
375 Overcharged Capacitor xx
390 Froststeel Tube xx
400 Hyperspeed Accelerators xx
405 Diamond-cut Refractor Scope xx
410 Mammoth Cutters xx
420 Noise Machine 5-15
425 Global Thermal Sapper Charge (requires Goblin Engineering) xx
435 Gnomish Army Knife 10+

If you don't have Goblin Engineering, you can substitute Saronite Razorheads at only 2 Saronite Bars each. Once at 445, you can make your class headpiece (example, Truesight Ice Blinders) for 1 skill up point. This is trainable at 440 but is one of the few yellow recipes beyond 445, and you will probably want to make one anyway. Then keep making (depending on available gems) Heartseeker Scopes or Gnomish Army Knives until 450.
