Engineering has the option at skill level 200 to specialize in Gnomish or Goblin Engineering. You can get the quests from your Engineering trainer. The main difference between both sides is the location of their respective teleporters and the ability of their trinkets. Some items require a specific specialization to use, while other items are crafted by one specialization but are usable by any engineer. Fortunately, most recipes that are crafted by one Specialization can be worn by both.

500 - 600

Visit your trainer and learn Zen Engineering.

  • 500 - 550
    You will use these later on, so make all of them now. You might even need to make more of these, but this is about the minimum that is needed to reach 580.

25 x [Ghost Iron Bolts] - 75 Ghost Iron Bar

15 x [High-Explosive Gunpowder] - 15 Ghost Iron Bar

Make a few [G91 Landshark] if you didn't reach 550.

  • 550 - 554
    4 x [Tinker's Kit] - 8 High-Explosive Gunpowder, 8 Ghost Iron Bolts, 8 Windwool Cloth

It's really important to stop making these at 554.

  • 554 - 579
    5 x [Ghost Iron Dragonling] - 20 High-Explosive Gunpowder, 40 Ghost Iron Bolts, 60 Windwool Cloth
  • 579 - 580
    1 x [Tinker's Kit] - 2 High-Explosive Gunpowder, 2 Ghost Iron Bolts, 2 Windwool Cloth
  • 580 - 595
    Here comes the ugly part. If you really want to reach 600 as fast as possible, you have to make 22-24[Thermal Anvil] just for 15 skill points, which is around 300 Ghost Iron Bar (600 Ghost Iron Ore). I don't recommend this recipe for leveling, you should just take it slowly, farm [Spirit of Harmony] and make any rare item that you can craft, most of them will give 5 skill points.

You can get [Spirit of Harmony] by combining 10 [Motes of Harmony]. Motes are dropped by every mob in Pandaria, even in dungeons. The drop rate is low, so it may take you 1 hour to collect 10 motes.

Recommended items to make:

1 x [Mist-Piercing Goggles] - 8 Ghost Iron Bolts, 2 Spirit of Harmony
2 x [Lord Blastington's Scope of Doom] - 36 Ghost Iron Bolts, 4 Primordial Ruby, 2 Spirit of Harmony.

But you can just make any item that you will use or sell.

  • 595 - 600
    At this point there is really no other option, you will have to make recipes that require Spirit of Harmony. I recommend the ones below, but you can make any other recipe that will give you 5 skill point.

1 x [Mist-Piercing Goggles] - 8 Ghost Iron Bolts, 2 Spirit of Harmony

or

1 x [Lord Blastington's Scope of Doom] - 18 Ghost Iron Bolts, 2 Primordial Ruby, 1 Spirit of Harmony.
