Gnomish X-Ray Scope

Gnomish X-Ray Scope

The Engineering crafted Gnomish X-Ray Scope has been making me a killing since the release of Patch 4.1.  In case you don't know the Gnomish X-Ray Scope has been changed.  It used to just give a flat crit bonus, but now it is much more of a preferred high end scope as it currently is a Proc based buff.  A Proc now gives you +800 Ranged Attack Power for 10 seconds.

Since Patch 4.1 I have been selling these very quickly and for twice my investment.  They only take 2 Hardened Elementium Bars and 2 Dream Emeralds to craft and I have been able to sell them on my server for 465g each.  So be sure to look into this market on your server, as it may be easy to grab some and flip them for a profit even if you can't craft them yourself.  I've sold 4 of these scopes in 3 days at this price.  These are scopes that I had left over from leveling Engineering and since the change to the scope, I'm so glad I didn't dump them for cheap.  Check out the option on your server.

  1. GRR!!! *scowl* This post puts me in a bad mood...or maybe that's just the lack of coffee! Probably the latter ;-)

    Seriously though, I have some of these darn things left over from when I recently leveled my engineering, just prior to 4.1.

    I CANNOT GET RID OF THESE BLASTED THINGS TO SAVE MY LIFE!!!! They go for about 150-199g on my server, though I am actually willing to off mine for 99g if anyone wanted them, but it doesn't even matter if I am the only one posting them, I literally can not give these things away!

    I even considered cluttering my guilds bank with them, but noticed someone already dumped some in there and I felt kind of tacky by dumping my trash on them under the guise of being nice. ;-)

    ugh, I hope everyone on my server reads your blog and suddenly feels the need to start buying these up now!

  2. Oh, since I posted that comment I notice that the price has gone up slightly on them. *is cautiously optimistic* ;-)

  3. "Since 4.1"? It has always given +800 AP /10sec?

  4. Well it did indeed have crit rating at first, tho that changed in the cataclysm beta to the x-ray scope we have today.

    Good job researching before you post anyhow.

  5. Most engineers (myself included) make these to level that profession. It took me FOREVER to unload the ones I had. Maybe this new change will make a difference. I have my doubts. Generally, these types of items (items that are suggested by leveling guides to craft) don't sell for much.

  8. Sorry if I confused you guys, but I didn't mean it to seem like the change happened in Patch 4.1.

    I'm just saying that since Patch 4.1 and the gear replacement push, these have been selling for top profits.
