Best Engineering Pair in Wotlk

In wotlk classic, a player can assume two primary professions. So, if you are going with engineering, make sure to pair it with mining.

Mining is a gathering profession and we have its whole overview in our other article. Mining provides engineers with raw materials such as metal and ore to craft arsenals.

As these materials are very expensive in auction houses, it’s only wise to mine and craft together so that you can survive the game and make the gold by selling the crafted items to other players. Most wotlk players on wow forums go with the same strategy. You can also sell metal and ores because they tend to be very expensive in auctions.

Engineering Specializations In Wotlk

There are two engineering specializations in Wrath of the Lich King. Gnomish Engineering and Goblin Engineering. Both are almost similar except if you are a melee player, you can take advantage of the Global Thermal Sapper Charger of Goblin Engineering.

To become a Gnomish Engineer, you must complete the quest Show Your Work. You need to turn in:
⦁ 6x Mithril Tube
⦁ 1x Accurate Scope
⦁ 2x Advanced Target Dummy

The most notable Gnomish Items are Gnomish X-ray Specs and Iceblade Arrow. These items are fun rather than deadly so you can expect no real contribution in combat.

To become a Goblin Engineer, you also have to complete the quest Show Your Work and turn in:
⦁ 20x Big Iron Bomb
⦁ 20x Solid Dynamite
⦁ 5x Explosive Sheep

Goblin engineering items Global Thermal Sapper Charge and Shatter Rounds can make a real impact in combat because they focus on explosives to inflict damage.
