MoP Engineering -
Ghost Iron Dragonling and Tinker's Gear
The new Engineering crafted trinket, the Ghost Iron Dragonling, has plenty of potential to be a strong gold maker in the Mists of Pandaria World of Warcraft expansion. Notice I said "has plenty of potential" for gold makers? That's because of the polarizing differences amongst our various WoW auction houses across the multiple WoW servers. It basically boils down to the newest war between Goblins and Kobolds that is so common on many WoW servers these days.
Ghost Iron Dragonling
The Ghost Iron Dragonling is a new trinket that is crafted by Engineers and unlike previous Engineering trinkets, it can be equipped by all characters level 87 or higher. With an item level of 450, the Ghost Iron Dragonling is a great gear piece to help boost a character's average item level, which will assist in meeting the average item level requirements for dungeons, heroics, and raids.
The Ghost Iron Dragonling is a pretty damn good trinket too, which contains 3 Cogwheel sockets that can be customized with the appropriate Tinker's Gear gems based on your class specialization's secondary stats of choice. In addition to the customizable cogwheel gem slots, the Ghost Iron Dragonling also has a chance to summon an actual Ghost Iron Dragonling to fight be your side for 20 seconds. The Dragonling is a nice dps boost that shoots lighting and can hit multiple targets with his AoE lightning attack.
The Ghost Iron Dragonling Trinket requires the following materials to craft: 12 Windwool Cloth & 14 Ghost Iron Bars (28 Ghost Iron Ore)
Tinker's Gear Gems - The New MoP Cogwheels
The new cogwheels, which are now called Tinker's Gear Gems, are also useable by all characters instead of just Engineers like the previous versions. A Tinker's Gear Gem exists for all of the secondary statistics, but they are unique-equipped, so you can only socket one of each type.
Tinker's Gear Gems in MoP:
- Flashing Tinker's Gear - 600 Parry
- Fractured Tinker's Gear - 600 Mastery
- Precise Tinker's Gear - 600 Expertise
- Quick Tinker's Gear - 600 Haste

- Smooth Tinker's Gear - 600 Critical Strike
- Sparkling Tinker's Gear - 600 Spirit

Strike Smart, Strike Fast Young Goblin
The main problem with these markets is that although the value of the Trinkets and the Tinker's Gear Gems are high, the swarms of Kobolds leveling Engineering are crashing the prices down to stupid levels on the auction house. Both the Ghost Iron Dragonling and the Tinker's Gems are good items to level the Engineering Profession with so many players will just toss the crafted items up for stupid prices regardless of what they could actually get based on the true value of the items. On my server the Tinker's Gear Gems are holding at a nice profit level, where the Trinkets are all over the place.
