Leveling Engineering 1 to 450

First off, something to keep in mind. What I am interested in here is leveling Engineering as painlessly as possible. I have therefore decided on these guidelines for my list.

  • Recipes that require rep with any faction are out.
  • Recipes that require any random luck are out (BoP and BoE drops)
  • Recipes that require unreasonable farming are out (No mats from Molten Core for instance)
  • Recipes will only be used when orange or yellow if at all possible for the very nearly guaranteed skillup.
  • I will assume that you have mining as a companion skill, so I will favor mined materials over others.
  • I will not include crafting tools until the Gnomish Army Knife. Just buy a gnomish army knife before you start, then sell the ones that you craft.
  • The materials list at the end will assume a skillup on every attempt, your milage can and will vary.

  • 13 Iron Strut (iron bar x2)

.

175 to 190 (green at 185, grey at 195. might not need the big iron bombs)

.

320 to 325

  • 5 Fel Iron Musket (heavy stock x1, fel iron casing x3, handful of fel iron bolts x4)

.

325 to 335

  • 10 fel iron toolbox (fel iron casing x1, fel iron bar x5, handful of fel iron bolts x2)
  • recipe sold at 72.31 in Shattrah

.

335 to 350 (green at 345, plan on about 20)

  • 15 white smoke flare (neatherweave cloth x1, elemental balsting powder x1)
  • recipe sold at 72.31 in Shattrah

.

350 to 360 ( if you make it to 375  stop, make your 10  volitile blasting triggers, and skip to overcharged capacitor)

  • 148 Handful of Cobalt Bolts (cobalt bar x2) note: it will make 1 to 3 handfuls each time, if you don’t make the cobalt frag bombs you only need 130, so somewhere between 45 and 130 times to get it. It took me 67.

.

360 to 366 ( if after the first 10 you are at 375 just stop)

  • 19 Volitile Blasting Trigger (cobalt bar x3, crystallized water x1) note: each one makes two, so you may have to do this as little as 5 times if already at 375+

.

366 to 375 ( if already at 375 skip this one)

  • 9 Cobalt Frag Bomb (handful of cobalt bolts x2, volitile blasting trigger x1)

.

375 to 390 (green at 385, grey at 390. may need to make a few extras but they will sell since they are for  a quest )

  • 30 Overcharged Capacitor (cobalt bar x4, crystallized earth x1)

.

390 to 400

  • 35 Froststeel Tube (cobalt bar x8, crystallized water x1)

.

400 to 405

  • 5 Diamond Cut Refractor Scope (froststeel tube x1, handful of cobalt bolts x2)

.

410 to 415

  • 5 Ultrasafe Bullet Machine (saronite bar x6, volitile blasting trigger x1)

.

415 to 420

  • 5 Saronite Arrow Maker (saronite bar x15)

.

420 to 435  (may be able to sell them off slowly, or just DE them)

  • 15 Noise Machine (froststeel tube x2, overcharged capacitor x2, handful of cobalt bolts x8)

.

435 to 450

  • 15 Gnomish Army Knife (saronite bar x10, skinning knife x1, blacksmiths hammer x1, mining pick x1)

Note: the Gnomish army knife goes green at 445 and grey at 450, so it will likely take more than 15. If you intend to make the crafted head piece ,and you plan to go all the way to 450 like I do, you may want to wait till I hit 449 and hopefully use it to get the last skillup. However if you don’t care about hitting 450, then just craft your helm at 440 and call it a (very expensive) day.

.

Here is the total materials shopping list. It is assuming going all the way to 450 and getting a skillup on every item you craft. As always, your milage can and will vary. Personally I would bank on about 10 to 15% more materials than it calls for in the list.
