  • How do I swap from Gnomish Engineering to Goblin
  • Book "Soothsaying for Dummies", isn't giving me the option to unlearn my specialization.

Customer Support cannot assist with switching your professions or specializations.

Modern WoW

You can drop your current specialization by opening the Profession tab in your Spellbook and unlearning Gnomish/Goblin Engineering. After that, you can learn the other specialization from your Engineering trainer Roxxik (Horde) or Sparkspindle (Alliance). 

WoW Classic and Burning Crusade Classic

Note: You cannot switch to a new Engineering specialization until you have completed the Show Your Work quest chain for your original specialization. 

Once you have completed this quest chain, you can switch specializations by abandoning Engineering altogether. 

  1. Unlearn Engineering
  2. Re-learn Engineering
  3. Level your skill up to at least 225
  4. Visit Narain Soothfancy in Tanaris and read the book Soothsaying for Dummies from the table next to him

You will now be able to learn a new specialization at the specialization trainer of your choice.
