Engineering Notes

Since this is the third time I’ve levelled engineering, I thought I’d write myself a guide so if I ever did it again, I would have an easy reference point. I usually follow one of the WoW Professions guides so a lot of the information can also be found there.

Approximate Materials Required for 1-600:

Silithus is a great place to farm all the thorium. I was able to collect all the ore within 2 circuits including the hives. The runecloth was easily farmed from the Twilight mobs.

Burning Crusade

By the time I was able to pick a speciality, my choice was simply based on how many cloth pieces I wanted to make for costumes. It turns out there were only two BoE items from Gnomish engineering so I didn’t need to sacrifice a thing.

Goblin Engineer Quest:

  • 20x Big Iron Bomb (30x Iron Bars), 30x Heavy Blasting Powder (30x Heavy Stones), 10x Silver Contact (10x Silver Bars)
  • 20x Solid Dynamite (10x Solid Blasting Powder, 10x Silk Cloth)
  • 5x Explosive Sheep (already had from levelling)

Goblin perks

  1. Goblin Construction Helmet
  2. Goblin Rocket Boots
  3. Goblin Rocket Helmet
  4. Dimensional Ripper – Everlook
  5. Dimensional Ripper – Area 52 – taught by Kablamm Farflinger next to the teleporter
  6. Foreman’s Enchanted Helmet

Gnomish perks

  1. Gnomish Rocket Boots
  2. Nigh-Invulnerability Belt

Wrath of the Lich King

To make:

  • Lord Blastington’s Scope of Doom
  • Long-Range Trillium Sniper
  • Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling
  • Mist-Piercing Goggles


Materials needed for Jeeves:

  • 2x Kings Amber = (1 Autumns Glow + Eternal Life) x2 = 2x Autumns Glow + 2x Eternal Life
  • 30x Handful of Cobalt Bolts = 15 Cobalt Bars = 15 Cobalt ore
  • 8x Titansteel Bars = (3x Titanium Bars + Eternal Fire + Eternal Earth + Eternal Shadow) x8 = (6x Titanium Ores + Eternal Fire + Eternal Earth + Eternal Shadow) x8 = 48x Titanium Ore + 8x Eternal Fire + 8x Eternal Earth + 8x Eternal Shadow)
  • 20x Scrapbot Construction Kit = 40x Saronite Bars = 80x Saronite Ore
  • 10x Field Repair Bot 110G = 2x (8x Adamantite Bars + 1x Khorium Power Core + 8x Fel Iron Bolts) = 32x Adamantite Ore + 2x Khorium Power Core + 16x Fel Iron Bolts
  • 2x Field Repair Bot 74A = 2x (16x Thorium Bars + 2x Fused Wirings) = 32x Thorium Ore + 4x Fused Wiring

Gather all the prerequisite Repair Bot recipes:

  1. Field Repair Bot 74A: this is learnt from the schematic on the floor near Golem Lord Argelmach in BRD.
  2. Field Repair Bot 110G: this is BoP drop from Gan’arg Analyzers in Blade’s Edge Mountains.
  3. Scrapbot Construction Kit:
    – take 4x [Handful of Cobalt Bolts] and 5x [Overcharged Capacitor]s with you.
    – kill Library Guardians in Storm Peaks until the [SCRAP-E Access Card] drops (high drop rate) – accept the quest.
    – turn it in to SCRAP-E, a small robotised gnome in the ‘temple’ building on top of the stairs (37.7, 46.5). Take the follow-up and return it to The Prototype Console, which is right next to him. This awards the Scrapbot Construction Kit.

For the Jeeves schematic:

  1. Farm the Library Guardians again so you can salvage the schematic. You’re likely to walk away with some Cobalt Bolts and Volatile Blasting Triggers in the process.
