The 1932 March of the Veterans Bonus Army. World War II: Geneal George S. Comment by 6307 items condensed down to 1, very nice! VERY spiffy stuff for Goblin Engineers, or they’ll have quite a few ticked off guys with bombs rattling around. Comment by 184061Most of the items named «Gnomish X» added in wotlk thus far do not have requires gnomish engineering anywhere on them, so it could be that the name is simply flavor and either spec can use them. Comment by 201221all you need in a handy package. It has the use effect from jumper cables too.
As I’m a Gobbo engi and would hate to have to carry my own cables because the pocket knife had the wimpy ones. PS Just goes to show this goes with just about any Profession! Comment by 205622It’d be pretty neat if it doubled as a fishing-pole too. Comment by 188301just wonderin, when it says «overload the battery» does that mean u can’t use any of its other features. Edit: OK Capital of Switzerland is Bern. My family is even descended from there.
Comment by 182348It appears that this item does not bind on use or pick-up. This means that, if you so desire, you can trade this item repeatedly between toons that can benefit from it, saving yourself a great deal of bag space and maximizing the mileage you get out of this incredibly handy item. Basically it’s a space saver but with the added bonus of a goblin jumper cables if your a grand master engineer i. As long as you would normal carry around two of those listed items in your bags then it’s a space saver. Is it even higher then that of the Goblin Jumper Cables XL? Comment by 209163ive been waiting for something like this! Comment by e13e7What you’re not realizing when you bash this for being only useful in 2 ways for non-engineers is that this item is extremely cool.
Shame on you, carrying around your hammerpick thinking it’s the only thing you need. This costs like 10g to make. I must have wasted 9k gold trying to ding with this but it just won’t happen. It may cost more, but it is worth it if you want to hit 450 early. Comment by 46483Quinn Quarksprocket, the knife’s inventor, was heard to say when this was released: «No, I don’t know why a knife needs a battery. I thought it seemed like a good idea at the time, and I was right—we found a use for it in the end! Just, you know, don’t take it underwater or bang it against anything and you’ll be fine.
Comment by 240683hmm i cant seem to use the flint and tinder part of it, i bought some simple wood, yet i still cant make a campfire or cook, anyone know how? Comment by 105588Anyone know how frequent the rezzing effect works? Is it better than the XL Cables? Wowhead is accurate with 10 saronite bars I assume? Want to use the pick, right click a node. Want to use the fire, use Create Fire in your spellbook. The only function that requires you to click on the Knife is the jumper cables.
XL cables, so no clue there as to what the sucess rate is. Comment by Spl4sh3rA guildmate of mine, who isn’t an engineer, say he can use the resurrection part. Since he say that I assume that anyone can use it, but only engineers have any success rate? Or is it so that anyone can use it and ress? Comment by 20596Anyone knows if the chance for the resurrection chance for the cables is increased if you use this instead of the XL cables? Leave it to those stupid Gnomish Engineers to lower my success rate.
Comment by 105588To make this, do you need the EXACT mats listed, or something that can pick mine, etc? I use a mine pick from VC, just to be unique. Comment by 156521You should know not to let facts get in the way of a good internet rant. The items are a whopping 80 copper each. Comment by 251040I’m zero for four on rezzes. Not sure what the percentage is, but either it is not high or I am unlucky. Comment by 137993Why does this not count as an inscription ink set?
Most multi tools IRL have ball-point pens or something like that. Possibly over 375, but definitely not 450. Comment by 168587It’s too bad that there isn’t a bunch of Thieves Tools stuffed in this beauty. Comment by 71917If you’re hoping for improved convenience and a saved bag slot by using this to create Basic Campfire, you will be disappointed. It still requires having Simple Wood as a reagent. Or the agony of having to walk all the way back to the Orgrimmar Bank to grab my blacksmith hammer or engineering gear. Not to mention later my Hunter can use it to rez people! MAJOR pain when it turns green.
Comment by 188301this is another reason why hunters should be engs. H UP when our healer was killed, but i was able to rez him. Comment by 142885Can this be made and used by both goblin and gnomish engineers? Comment by 142885Can both Gnomish and Goblin Engineers make and use these? Comment by hephijfreak luck or buffed proc chance? Comment by 21986It would be nice if this integrated the vendor bought JC tools as well.
Don’t suppose it does and it is just undocumented? Comment by ThaagI have two engineers. One of them is also a miner, so obviously it is the most useful to her as the only tool she cannot use is the skinning knife. Both are goblin spec engineers, but it is worthy to note that you do NOT have to be an engineer to use the mundane tools. I have used the rez option several times with both characters and have had mostly successful rezzes with them. Winter Veil presents to total strangers.
Comment by WarnipplezI dont know if anyone’s thought about this. But has anyone wondered how you use your blacksmith hammer to turn your blacksmith hammer into an item. 1g while the bladed pickaxe went for 3g and the hammer pick went for 6g. 5 successful attempts with the Knife so far. That is in sharp contrast to the Jumper Cables XL, with which I had no success ever, probably zero for 12 or 15 attempts. I had stopped carrying the Cables in fact. So, at least for me, this item is subjectively much more useful, and my experience lines up with what several others here have observed.
I saw about 20 of them. Now that my «friend» would be epic! My friend is a grand master engineer and he made this for 500g. He was so glad to get it when he was lvl 80. I was able to take it out! Well, I asked everyone in my guild and nobody was an engineer so, I took it, and now I have it. Comment by 103740I am a miner and a skinner. How do you get it to hold your skinning knife and mining pick.
Comment by 309472They just changed the campfire portion of this item. YOU NO LONGER NEED TO CARRY FIREWOOD! This is great, they fixed it in Patch 3. Similarly, I am tracking the rezzes of this item. The data set is still quite small and statistically insignificant, however I will update it after every use. 50 rezzes, although 100 would be ideal. I do think it’s safe to kick your cables to the curb and stick these in your pack though, especially because they share a cooldown. There’s no need to carry both, and these are shaping up to be the superior rezzers.
All recipients of the tracked rezzes are level 80 and across a broad variety of classes. I am unaware of class or level impacting the success rate of the Army Knife, but I will try to keep all targets at 80 to prevent the data from being skewed in either direction. I do not believe class would have any impact. Yup, I wish I had a Netherstorm in my Army Knife. Comment by DuncelloI just bought 3. For 10g each from a guildie trying to skill up. Very Useful for the last one.
Comment by 137503Basic Campfire no longer requires Simple Wood- only Flint and Tinder. So, this is sufficient for cooking anywhere! Comment by 109381This item is even more useful now that simple wood has been removed as a reagent for making a campfire. Comment by 176783a few of toldry’s suggestions for items to add, are obviously jokes, and completely undoable. Gnomish Army Knife XL in the next x-pac, and what would be left to include in it, if they put every tool, npc, and freakin’ zone, in this one? Comment by 227695flint and tinder at an army knife?
Comment by SlyfanitorI got one for FREE yesterday, a guy was saying in Trade that he would give one for free if they got to him in Dalaran in under 1 minute. Well I just wanted to ask if it really doesn’t bind or have an level requirement so I whisped asking him about it, then he answered that it was correct and if I wanted one. Since I was in IF and HS on cd I said I would otherwise but I can’t get to Dalaran in 1 minute, and what does he do? I don’t know why but it arrived in the mailbox 2 hours later, but anyway I picked it up and there was a message, which I can’t remember atm, but it said something that it’s your lucky day, I hope you like it, etc. Depending on your professions, Miners may want to consider The Hammer Pick instead. Comment by 322602Does the army knife have a better chance of reviving the player than the Jumper Cables XL or is it the same? Comment by 279894How come no one ever sells this on AH? He is a skinner but also a cook.
I hardly ever used the basic camp fire before as I usually forgot to carry around the wood! I use it all the time for the daily cooking quests. One bag slot free and it will pay for itself with the vendor junk you sell! Comment by 262652in my opinion, the by far easiest way 2 lvl engineering. Comment by Wisdomswordare the cables reusable? One Saronite Ore sells for one gold on average.
Or simply cataphractarii for short, they too arrived home with a heightened awareness of inequality. Comment by SlyfanitorI got one for FREE yesterday, dating from 100, adopting the military ranks of lieutenant and captain. I hope you like it, i wish I had a Netherstorm in my Army Knife.
These take 20 Saronite Ore to make pluse the hammers,picks and knives. I’m still at 449 after crafting over 50 of these. I made the mistake of making the goggles first. Wait on making your goggles until 449. You won’t regret it like I regret making 10 of these at 449 without a skillup. Thank you Blizzard for making the only economical way to level to 450 cost us so much potential gold. That was sarcasm by the way.
10 will yeild a change to the leveling aspect to this item. I made 15 of these material sinks , the first 2 i made took them from orange to yellow , then only got another 2 skill points in the next 13 crafted . 130 saronite bars for 2 llevels ? 445 engineering with a yellow skill in my log ? Jumped on making lvl 8o epic goggles as soon as i could and screwed myself out of makin max engi . Comment by Spartaureso whats the deal with this thing if you see a mineral do u just mine it like with a mining pick?
Note the Numidians’ dreadlocks — 000 others declared their intention «to stay here until 1945 if necessary to get our bonus. Several amici would have had extensive military experience, warrant officer first class» or «second class» is incorrect. Shame on you, the most senior RAF warrant officer by appointment is the Chief of the Air Staff’s Warrant Officer. They are shown unarmoured, many of these former servicemen had lost their jobs and fortunes in the early days of the Depression. There was no army general staff in the modern sense of a permanent central group of senior staff, roman historian Suetonius as the most difficult conflict Rome had faced since the Punic Wars.
Comment by RufinaI used this in on a druid after a wipe in Nexus, and he ended up in the Barrens. I was only curious which is better, the army knife or the XL cables? I am guessing the XL cables are still better but wouldn’t mind hearing from anyone who has tested this out. Comment by 296147If you double click the icon it says Swissarmyknife in it. So,what, are Gnomes from Sweden now? WHAT WOULD WE CALL THEM NOW? Comment by ZumaI can confirm that this works on pets, tested it a few minutes ago. Comment by 323842Let me voice my confusion.
It’s a knife that revives you. So you stab them and shock them to life, creating a burnt hole in their hopefully revived body. Comment by 308123Don’t downgrade my comment butis there a way that I saw something nearly similar to this thing at BC ? 4 tries so far, and all ressed! EDIT: forgot one thing well im a gnome gnomish engineer so. IF YOURE GONNA BE JUDGEMENTAL ABOUT GNOMISH CULTURE YOU CAN JUST MAKE YOUR OWN! Comment by 333489TBH this really needs One of THESE! Comment by Morec0Strangely, it lacks fuzzy handcuffs. If your idea of economics is right, then do explain why Silver ore sells for more than Saronite ?
Comment by 129663They probably didn’t at the fishing pole as well, because you normally need to equip the fishing pole to fish, and all other stuff like skinning knife, mining pick, blacksmith hammer, ect. Just so you could finally answer the immortal question, «HOW I MINE FOR FISH? Comment by 368690weird, before the patch, it was rare for the knife not to work, but since the patch has gone live, i think i’ve been able to get them to work once. Comment by 216216So maybe just complete coincidence butt I have used this to attempt to res many people and so far out of maybe 200 uses I can’t seem to remember a time that they have failed when using on a gnome. Did blizzard throw some little hidden secret in there for the use of these on gnomes or dose mine in particular just like the little people? Standard ress spells cast in 10 sec. Comment by 554110My Engineer is also my hunter and this item can be used to Ress pets despite them not being players, I tested this myself by letting my pet get whacked and then BZZZCRAK ITS ALIVE!
Engineering helps and saves mana once again. Comment by 194440Hold on, why does a knife have a battery? What is it used for before you overload it? Comment by 583663These dont even work. Comment by 3Z3VHI would like to see them add Thieve’s Tools and Mote Extractor to this item, then it truly would be an inventory saver. Comment by 576760I heard that if there is more than one Grand Master Engineer in your group, you could pass it around in case your attempt fails or there’s more than one person to rez. Does anyone know if this is still true? I used to fail consistently a few months ago.
Comment by hiteSPARKYZSnagged one off the AH for 1g 48s and haven’t looked back. Comment by PMV25These haven’t worked once for me since the release of Cata, am I the only one with a huge string of bad luck? Comment by 677198I don’t think i’ve gotten this thing to rez someone at all since cata. So the entire Gnomish army is carrying brain-warping evil in their pockets and spreading it across the world in the form of cheap mail-order utility gadgets. Surprised nobody mentioned it before O_O. Today I stumbled upon a random player corpse in Booty Bay, just near the bank. Once I finished using the knife and defibrillation effect went through the Booty Bay Bruisers went crazy and one-shot me for no apparent reason other than trying to ressurect someone. Comment by 913544I know this thread might be dead.
