    While the Ghost Iron Dragonling is made by engineers, it is not "Engineers ONLY."

    A decent one if you manage to get it, but it won't be available for too long. This will cover stuff you should be able to get forever minus anything earned by either Galleon or Sha of Anger (like my current helm).

    Ghost Iron Dragonling - Crafted, Engineers ONLY


    This isn't engineer only. Anyone can use it, but only engineers can craft the cogwheels (BoE) to put into the sockets.

    Indeed! Good catch.

    Je'lyu, Spirit of the Serpent From Heroic Temple of the Jade Serpent
    and
    Thousand-Year Pickled Egg From Direbrew.

    I'm not going to put the Pickled egg on here, simply because it's only going to be around for a few more days. Added the Mace.

    So, Engineers can make the cogwheels for the Dragonling but anyone can use them to put into the Dragonling and get the bonuses? I thought they were Engineer specific much like how Jewelcrafters only get Serpent's Eye.

    Added a whole bunch of epics I missed the first time through. Even MOAR to follow.

    Correct. An engineer makes the trinket and the Cogwheels, and anyone can put the Cogwheels into their own trinket.

    Hmmm, interesting. I may take a look at the cogwheels then and see what they cost, if the trinket is still worth it or not (at least for perhaps the Enhance set I'm building, I'm good for Resto).

    Updated!

    Please note: All the Justice gear no longer requires a certain reputation with a particular faction, just track down their quartermaster. Also, all that JP gear is now ilvl 458 (up from 450), but that change IS NOT reflected on the site yet.

    Don't forget the gear from Salyis's Warband out in Valley of the Four Winds. There's plenty of gear to be had from him and the Sha of Anger, as my gear shows from Sha ;)

    Think you'll throw in the BIS enchants for each of those in your guide?

    For off-hands, you could also add Inscribed Red Fan, epic BoE created through Inscription (very cheaply, I might add, so keep that in mind if looking to buy it). The only thing which drives the price up is the fact that it takes 5 Scrolls, which could otherwise be used for cards.

    Also, for those who have Inscription themselves, Inscribed Crane Staff, epic BoA staff (takes 20 days of research and a bunch of SoHs). Probably a good choice if you have a priest/druid/monk on the side, since you won't have to farm them starter weapons.

    PS: The Dragonling trinket with 3 cogwheels included takes 20 ghost iron bars to make (2 stacks of ore), for those wondering. Very accessible, considering the stat boost.
