Finally! After trying to recruit so many 80 and 85 twinks I finally have a guild full of them.<We Are Legendary> Is a level 25 horde guild on the server Tarren Mill that is currently recruiting level 85 twinks! but any 80 twinks are also welcome.We are casually raiding (Dragon Soul, Firelands, Bastion etc) and doing high rated arena, soon we will start doing Rated Battlegrounds.If you're interested in joining the guild, feel free to add my battletag "Lazorg#2572" or contact me ingame on:SyltenPlatemailLazorqFrixxy*Salsamästarn* = Main "Toon" (You'll probably see me online on this)
If people call this "twinking", they should check out Anarchy Online. That's REAL twinking lol.
Sun-Lute of the Phoenix King - cannot be upgraded by 85 twink, cos there no way to gain valor before 90.
lol, first time see wowhead doing twink guide :P GJ
Good guide, and i thought i was smart for getting all the rares from the Finder's Keeper's achieve i could wear at 86 lol.
Do not forget that TS armors can net blue versions, which will carry you to 88 before replacements show up from quests.
I wish I could show my hate and annoyance for this that much more. Twinking at 80 should be a bannable offense with how ridiculously broken it is. 80-84s should NOT have access to gear that tops end-game expansion gear in multiple ways.MoP gear all suffers from the same asinine issue of Blizzard's idiot dev team not knowing how to properly scale items in the next expac. Cata gear is bad enough for 80s with locked exp, or players who don't have Cataclysm. There is literally nothing the players who only have Wrath can do to fight back, except hope they can farm up ~100k and dump it all onto the AH for gear. That is not fun, nor is it fair to put a price tag on your 'skill' in PvP.My hunter is geared for Herald of the Titans and it's easier to grind honor than run dungeons for JP, and I can't tell you how many times I've been annihilated instantly by some *!@# rocking 400s in almost every slot. This is far different from the old style of twinking because those twinks don't have access to ridiculous gear. Hell, the only thing remotely OP about lower twinks was the enchantments you could put on them.I'm done my rant, for now. Suffice to say anyone making a twink for the 80-84 brackets, go play some other game. You are scum and you ruin this game with your giant flapping e-peen being the only thing you care about. Having fun at the expense of others is pretty much the definition of being a colossal %^&*.
It's a pity I'm not a fan of twinking personally, but I would be tempted too after seeing the stats on this gear. It's a tough call though on if I would use it to level (<<Most likely) or twink away.Great guide!
This all comes down to "play how you want."I'm perfectly happy browsing the AH to find deals on these items (the 80/409, and the 85/450) and either use them on my own characters or resell for a bit of profit.People will pay it.People will use it.My 80 warrior, in all of the plate 409, and a mix of 308 or less gear, can pull 25k dps as Arms in BRC, and having over 70k HP, I usually end up being the unofficial tank, because no one can keep aggro off me.My now-86 monk, with the 471 Spear of Xuen, a couple 450 pieces, and the rest dungeon blues (give or take) pulls 40k+ when I'm lazy, and I've topped 100k in AE situations. I know that'll go down as leveling's curve will destroy the stat distribution, but that's okay, I'm having fun now, I'm very visibly contributing to my group, and I'll be 90 that much faster.
No shaman cataclysmic? Nice...
