Scopes are pretty much entirely worthless to anyone but a Hunter.It's the reason most people didn't really care much for engineering until they started adding a flying mount, epic goggles and actually useful things for non-hunters to the profession. It was great for twinks, good for PVP before the Arena came around, but ultimately was still something you didn't really put on any character but a Hunter. Now it's really really useful for non-hunters if only because you can add a LOT of +stam with a trinket, gun and epic helm. Slightly less useful for a caster still, but very very useful for melee classes. Except scopes still only make sense for a hunter to use. I'd like to be able to add something more than +crit to a gun on a gun. A fun proc would be nice, like being able to add a chance of a stun or debuff or something that would be useful for the one time you shoot your gun as a warrior or rogue. (which isn't often!)

I guess there in lies the rub with scopes. Since they only work on the ranged weapon and for the ranged weapon, there's not much use for them outside of ranged weapon users like hunters. The only thing I can think of that a non-hunter would use a scoped weapon for is to add a few extra damage to their pulling attacks, assuming they don't have a hunter pulling it to them in the first place.

Besides rogue and warrior pulling I find guns and bows usefull for occasionally finishing off runners.
