Many players may be looking for a cataclysm engineering leveling guide. Although this craft has long since been seen as the black sheep of the crafting trades, since the addition of epic goggles that require LV 525 in engineering to wear, it has grown in popularity and attracted many new aficionados. Below, we want to go into details on this topic.
Engineering has always had a distinct advantage to a particular kind of a player. The items created by this craft are usable at any level, making it a very popular choice for twinks or those who would like to build a twink character. Engineering also gives the player the ability to make two unique mounts: for the horde, the Mechano-hog, and for the alliance, the Mekgineer’s Chopper.
As this is a primary craft, many people will chose a secondary craft that can complement this one. Mining is an obvious alternative as many engineering recipes require ore or ingots in order to produce. However, many players may have access to mining on an alt or merely be able to buy up all the ore that they can on the auction house.
Skinning is another popular secondary choice for engineers, as some recipes do require leather. However, many players level gathering alts that have both mining and skinning leveled. In these cases, Jewelcrafting may be a good choice for a secondary craft. There are two reasons why this is the case.
Jewelcrafting is another good choice for twinks as it allows the player to make usable items with no level requirement. However, it has another use. Prospecting is an ability that Jewelcrafters get that allows them to make gems from ore. Many engineering recipes use ore, so this ability might come in handy.
Any character at level 10 can learn to be an engineer by talking to a trainer in any major city. There are two specializations in engineering, that can be trained at level 200. It is notable, though, that both Gnomish and Goblin engineering are not that important in cataclysm, and that a player can put that decision off until later.
Finding a good cataclysm engineering guide is easy. There are many sites willing to offer advice to a budding player, however, figuring out which recipes to use is a matter of looking at the available ingredients. Simply put, recipes with the most readily available ingredients are best used to grind one’s way to the current crafting cap.
