1. Phosgene Engineering Guide 1-450 (x5)

    Welcome to my personal engineering guide!
    Engineering was my first crafting profession when I started playing so it will hold a special place in my heart forever. I was doing it again recently on my hunter just for fun and I went through Warmane forum for some tips from other players and realized that thereÔÇÖs nothing! Nothing about this amazing profession! So I decided to make my own and share my tips with you. Enjoy your reading!

    An important thing! If you are new to World of Warcraft I strongly discourage from choosing engineering as your first crafting profession (donÔÇÖt follow the voice of inner nabness like I did)! Mostly because leveling it is expensive and letÔÇÖs face it: even maxed out engineering isnÔÇÖt really profitable.

    • Lots of equipment upgrades such as: parachute, nitro boots, glove rocket launcher, haste buff, mind control, explosives etc
    • Able to make epic quality ammunition
    • Able to craft flying mounts (BoP) and MekgineerÔÇÖs Chopper / Mechano-hog (BoE) ÔÇô requires exalted status with Alliance Vanguard / Horde Expedition
    • Save your raid with Jeeves or MOLL-E!
    • Makes other people jelly

    • Upgrades can fail to work, parachute not open, nitro boots shoot you into the sky etc
    • No 245 or 264 equipment schematics
    • Nothing to gain profit from except ammunition (which is negligible)

    This guide was made on Deathwing where 1 skill-up is 5. I donÔÇÖt know what multipliers have professions on other realms so I canÔÇÖt say how this guide would work for them. The skill-up list was made to minimize cost and any use of rare materials. Of course the recipes are my personal choice however I thought of most possible options to skill-up while planning this guide so I think you can rely on it. The corresponding gathering profession is mining. If you donÔÇÖt have mining, you better have a loaded personal guild bank. If you donÔÇÖt be ready to give up some gold.

    The number before every material refers to single +5 craft. I decided not to multiply the numbers because I canÔÇÖt tell you an exact amount if you craft something until the recipe becomes gray. On green you can progress two times in a row or you wonÔÇÖt progress up at all. Still in some cases itÔÇÖs cheaper than crafting only orange recipes which guarantee a skill-up.

    I deliberately didn't sum all the materials. Firstly because the problem with skill-ups mentioned above and secondly because it would be nice if you, dear reader, would do at least some part of the thinking here. :)

    Comments are always welcomed! If this guide was useful to you don't be shy and send a word or a coin to character Chloroformxd on DW.

    At this point you can choose one of the available engineering specializations which are: gnome or goblin engineering. In WotLK there is only one difference between these two: gnome engineers will be able to craft epic quality arrows, while gobli engineers epic quality bullets. Both recipes can be bought for 1 Primordial Saronite from The Ashen Verdict Quartermaster, Alchemist Finklestein in Icecrown Citadel.
    Personally IÔÇÖve chosen gnome engineer for both my characters with that proffesion. You should be able to switch between gnome and goblin however I havenÔÇÖt tested it yet so canÔÇÖt say anything specific.
    The quest line (gnome engineer) starts from any capital cityÔÇÖs engineering trainer, by whom you are sent to either Oglethorpe Obnoticus (Booty Bay) or Tinkmaster Overspark (Ironforge). First you have to sign your pledge of secrecy (thatÔÇÖs pretty obvious!). After that your trainer will ask you to present your engineering craftsmanship so he can decide if youÔÇÖre worthy to learn the GnomesÔÇÖ secrets! The items you will be asked to make are:

      • 3x Mithril Bar

    • 2x Advanced Target Dummy
      • 4x Heavy Leather
      • 1x Bronze Framework
