Are you intending to level up Engineering, we will help you do this fast and easy from level 1 to 600. The Engineering Levelling Guide is updated for patch 5.4
The best is to combine Engineering with Mining, this will save you a lot of gold, if you level Engineering with Mining. Buying everything from the Auction House can be very expensive, so really it is better to level together engineering with Mining. If you decide to do that, check out the Mining levelling guide. Of course the fastest way to level Engineering is to buy everything from the Auction House.

You can get all the quests that you need from the Engineering trainer. The difference is location of their teleports and the ability of their trinkets.

10 Motes of Harmony will give you Spirit of Harmony by combining. Motes are easily dropped by every mob in Pandaria, even in dungeons. However it is quite low drop rate, so it may take you long time, could be probably 2 hours for 10 motes.
Good to make the items below:
