Engineering Requirements in World of Warcraft Dragonflight
If you're interested in pursuing the engineering profession in World of Warcraft Dragonflight, there are a few requirements you'll need to keep in mind. Let's take a closer look at what these requirements are and how you can meet them.
First and foremost, you'll need to focus on two main factions in order to progress as an engineer: the Dragon Scale Expedition and the Centaurs. You'll see items related to these factions on your screen, although you may not yet know what they are. Many of them are either toys or used for profession tools and accessories. While you may not need to grind this reputation depending on your focus, it's still something to keep in mind. You'll also need a lot of Artisans Consortium reputation, which can be gained through preferred or respected reputations, which aren't super high grinds.
As an engineer, you'll have access to a few key pieces of equipment that are essential for success. As a primary profession, you can equip two accessories and one profession tool. These are the Kazgrite Brainwave Amplifier and the Kaskarite Encased Salmon Flange. Engineers can craft these for themselves or order them through the crafting order system. The missing accessory comes from Leatherworking, which is not surprising, and is the Shock Proof Gloves. If you have a leatherworker, you can craft this for yourself, or you'll have to go through the work order system.
Now that you know the requirements for the engineering profession in World of Warcraft Dragonflight, you can start working toward meeting these goals. By focusing on the right factions and equipment, you'll be able to progress as an engineer and achieve success in this exciting field.
Engineering in World of Warcraft Dragonflight is a complex and diverse profession that requires a specific set of skills and resources. Before we dive into the recipes, let's take a closer look at the reagents you'll need to master engineering.
Similar to blacksmithing, engineering heavily relies on ore, with Servite Ore being the base ore for almost all crafts. Draconium and Kazgrate are also important, but the base of everything is Servite Ore. Depending on the type of craft you're doing, you may use more of one than the others.
In addition to ore, a new Elemental reagent called Awakened Elementals is used in almost all crafting professions. As an engineer, you will likely be focusing on the different types of Awakened Elementals. These reagents are essential in creating complex engineering devices and tools.
What really makes engineering unique in terms of crafting is all of the different intermediate parts that you have to craft. These intermediate parts can be combined to create a wide variety of devices and tools, from mechanical pets to explosives. These parts require a range of reagents, including the Elemental reagents and ore mentioned earlier.
The complexity of engineering is best explained in-game, where you can learn how to craft intermediate parts and combine them to create powerful tools and devices. Once you have a grasp of the different reagents and intermediate parts, you can start experimenting and creating your own unique engineering devices.
Dragonflight Engineering Recipe Breakdown
With so many new and improved items, it can be tough to know where to begin. So, let's start with the basics.
You'll first notice a difference in the User Interface. In the part section, you have Servite bolts, coils, gears, Blasting Powder, Safety Fuses, Machine Chassis, and an Arc Light Capacitor. These are utilized in almost every single craft. One example of a craft is the Wormhole Generator, which is a high-end crafted item that requires specialization to warp to a specific location.
But what about finishing and optional reagents? These items can improve your crafting abilities, reduce malfunctions, heal, and prevent explosions. Optional reagents, in particular, are crucial to any engineer, as they can be slotted into your engineered crafting gear to do something special. For example, the Battle Res allows you to revive a player and restore 60% of their health and 20 mana. Exciting, right?
Now let's talk about goggles. You have a blue and epic version, and four versions for each class type. They have a Tinker socket to improve their abilities. Hunters will be excited about the guns, which come in blue and epic versions, each with two random stats. They also have a new optional reagent called CogWheels that applies specific stats such as versatility, haste, critical strike, or mastery.
But what if you want to prioritize a specific stat? In that case, you'll need to use the optional reagent. You can also use weapon enhancements, such as sharp needles that allow you to apply bleed to a target, or fire damage in an explosive range. And let's not forget about devices. The Wormhole generator is a toy that allows you to travel around the dragon Isles. The Soul Inhaler is important as it drains an elemental and grants you a soul, which is a high-end crafted item.
The Savior is another utility item that people will want, as it allows you to resurrect all party members within a certain distance of this item. Keep in mind, these items are stackable, and multicrafting works, making it a big market for high-end players.
Engineering in Dragonflight is an exciting and vast world that offers endless possibilities. With the right tools, items, and optional reagents, you'll be able to engineer your way to the top in no time.
Recommended Dragonflight Engineering Builds
Now, let's talk about recommended builds.
Recommended Build Disclaimer
Before we begin, I want to make a few important notes. First, it's important to keep in mind that once you use your points, they are permanent and cannot be undone. However, even if you make a mistake, it's okay because you can learn and max out everything over time as long as you have enough knowledge points. Additionally, my engineering disclaimer is that there are many options and I will be offering some basic, generalized suggestions, but feel free to mix and match as you see fit.
Now, let's talk to the non-gold makers and utility people. If you're looking to use the Wormhole generator, the first thing you need to do is unlock the Mechanical Mind which will allow you to craft the Wormhole generator and sell it for profit. By putting 20 points into this tree, you will reduce the cooldown of the Wormhole generator by 50% which is a huge bonus. You will also be able to use portable workbenches for twice as long and use spare parts finishing reagents. To make the best Wormhole generator, it will cost you 50 points in the Novelties subspec. This will allow you to select where you want the Wormhole generator to teleport you, making it a lot more useful.
If you want to finish the Mechanical Mind tree, you will need to put another 20 points into it, bringing the total to 70 points spent. This will also unlock the Savior robot which will allow you to undo a team wipe. If you're trying to be self-sufficient, this is another path you may want to consider.
Of course, you're also going to be able to learn some additional things right here. You'll be able to do another finishing reagent, and this will allow you to have a lower likelihood of Tinkers and bombs exploding in your face. As an engineer, goblins are clumsy, and because of that, many of these devices and explosives can malfunction, which is not ideal. However, as you specialize in your trees, you'll be able to decrease that risk. If you're focused on the Wormhole Generator, you want to specialize in the Utility Tree. On the other hand, if you're interested in Tinkers, you'll want to specialize in the Inventions tree. This will reduce the chance of your Tinkers catastrophically malfunctioning, and you'll be able to create the Arc Light Vital Correctors, a battle res Tinker.
Moving away from Tinkers and Utility, there's the Armor Tree, where function over form is important. To unlock a subspec, you need to apply five points, and I recommend going for the Gear route first. By doing so, you'll have the chance of discovering bracers while crafting other items. As you put more points in, you'll gain more skills for your combat equipment, be able to use more reagents, and even empower your guns with embellishments. If you put 10 more points into this tree, you'll unlock Gears for Gear, which focuses on cogwheels. By crafting greased-up gears, you'll have a chance to discover cogwheel recipes, which allow you to specify the secondary stat for your goggles and bracers.
You're going to gain some additional stats, unlock some additional optional reagents, and be able to use finishing reagents in crafting your agents. If your Tinkers fail, you'll gain schematics and recipes for failing, which is super awesome. As always, you'll have more multicrafting options and be able to use cogwheels in your bracers. This requires a total of 80 points to max out the specialization.
If you want to focus on consumables, there is a subspec that deals with Scopes, ammunition, and enchants for ranged weapons.
This tree allows you to unlock the utility ability, gain resourcefulness, unlock more recipes, and use finishing reagents in crafting items.
If you're into explosives, the bomb section has a tree for general bomb making, where you'll be able to craft all items 15% faster, handle bombs better, reduce their cooldown, increase damage dealt, and craft a massive air strike once per day. There's also a tree for easy bombs that anyone can use and another for engineering-specific bombs. As you max out these trees, you'll gain bonus skills and stats, be able to use finishing reagents, and unlock special crates with different bombs. There's also a generic tree that grants you Plus stats for all bomb crafting and a small chance to gain additional easy bombs as you craft regular bombs.
Lastly, you'll be able to use the finishing agents on these bombs. That's kind of my speed run for those focused on this category. You'll have the overall performance in crafting both dangerous and easy bombs.
Let's move on to the final tree, which is the overall generic engineering tree. If you put points in this category, you'll gain overall skill and stat bonuses, as well as a few unique features such as the ability to speed up your process, gain additional bonus stats, and a huge gain in inspiration if you go the "pieces" route. Additionally, you'll be able to use finishing reagents when creating parts, which will increase your skill for crafting reagents. There's a small chance of receiving a random inspiring element when creating parts, which can be very nice to increase your crafting value. The next category is the Scrapper, which is cool if you're in the bomb or tinkering range. You'll gain the ability to recover a piece of scrap when using tinkers or throwing bombs, and you can rummage through scrap pieces to get additional junk. You'll also gain additional bonuses in resourcefulness and the ability to craft an inhaler.
The final category is the Generalist, which is the most basic system. You'll get a speed boost, additional resourcefulness in crafting everything, the ability to reduce bomb or tinker malfunctioning, and more stats. This was a lot of information, so if something wasn't said clearly, please let me know and I'll do my best to provide better information in the comments below. If you want to know more about a specific item, feel free to ask. If you have any generalized questions, I'm here to help. Thank you for spending the last 40 minutes with me and I hope this was useful. The last two professions will be coming out soon. Thank you for watching and have a good day!
