The Engineer


The Engineer


Armor Type: Mix of cloth and leather
Level Req.: 60 (and 225 Engineering skill)
Source: Crafted via engineering, tailoring and dungeon/raid drops
Availability: Some pieces, namely the chest, are extremely elusive. If you want perfection, expect to invest a large amount of time or gold into the set. Alternatives are however listed, should the rarer pieces be totally out of reach.

How to get the set:
As mentioned above, the set is a mixture of items crafted from engineering and of dungeon drops. The headpiece and bracers are both BoP boss loots from Gnomeregan, and drop at a reasonably high rate. The overalls, whilst also from Gnomeregan, are on the hand a BoE drop from (most) trash mobs in the instance with a very low drop chance, somewhere in the region of 0.05%. They crop up on the AH on occasion, but will be a challenge to find either via farming or buying. A cheaper alternative is listed at the bottom of this page.

The belt and boots are both crafted by engineers and are both recipes available from trainers, requiring 215 and 225 skill respectively to wear them. The shirt is available from tailors of 400 or more skill, and can often be found on the Auction House. The final piece, the mace, is a drop from the cache that you are rewarded with once you’ve defeated Majordomo Executus in Molten Core. Now that MC is soloable by many level 85s, it should be quite easy to obtain with a 19% drop rate. If, however, you’re unable to equip a 2H Mace, see below for an alternative!

Head – Electromagnetic Gigaflux Reactivator (BoP from Mekgineer Thermaplugg in Gnomeregan)
Chest – Mechbuilder’s Overalls (BoE drop from Gnomeregan trash)
Shirt – Green Workman’s Shirt (Created by tailors of 400 skill or greater)
Wrists – Spidertank Oilrag (BoP from Electrocutioner 6000 in Gnomeregan)
Waist – Gnomish Harm Prevention Belt (Crafted by Engineers at 215 skill)
Feet – Gnomish Rocket Boots (Crafted by Engineers at 130 skill, but bizarrely not wearable until 225 skill)
Two-handed Mace – Finkle’s Lava Dredger (BoP from Cache of the Firelord in Molten Core)


Alternatives:
Chest – Blue Overalls (Crafted by tailors of 100+ skill)
Main Hand – Arclight Spanner (Crafted by engineers of 50+ skill)

    A nice addition to this, is to be a fury warrior and DW both Finkles, and the Force Reactive Disk (www.wowhead.com/item=18168/force-reactive-disk).

    Very nice as a gnome fury warrior. Also, if you are not a Fury warrior, you can use the arclight Spanner as an alternative for the MH wep.
