WoW Classic WotLK Engineering Guide: Leveling, Materials and Recipes

Engineering has long been one of the main professions of World of Warcraft. The profession that gives players speed boosts with rocket boots, fall speed with parachutes, and a host of other perks such as mobile repair stations, goggles, and more has always had its place.

Benefits like these can be expected with the release of Wrath of the Lich King Classic, as this cold-blooded expansion will feature tons of new recipes to learn and items for Engineers to craft.

With that in mind, here is a comprehensive guide to Engineering in WotLK Classic.

WoW Classic WotLK Engineering Guide

As one of the most favored professions, Engineering always brings something new and exciting to players with every expansion. It is a profession that, unlike blacksmithing, leatherworking and the like, can not only supply equipment, but also supply small unique items.
