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.

That's REAL twinking lol.AO was the first MMO I ever played...terrible graphics looking back, but yes, you haven't seen twinking until you've done it in AO.QL 200 implants & nanos 5x your level... ahhh I miss those days. Especially on a Metaphysicist!/nostalgia
lol, first time see wowhead doing twink guide :P GJ
Sun-Lute of the Phoenix King - cannot be upgraded by 85 twink, cos there no way to gain valor before 90.From Sun-Lute of the Phoenix King comments,By Chakra (2,217 – 5·11) 29 days ago (Patch 5.1.0) Report How to accrue valor points to upgrade this weapon as a level 85.1)Get 600 fishing.Go to Pandaria and fish up Flying Tiger Gourami, Mimic Octopus and Spinefish Alpha. Turn them in to Nat Pagle for a maximum of 15 valor points per day.2)Cataclysm raid bosses no longer grant valor when killed but:Level 85s can enter the lvl 90 MoP raids MSV/HoT/ToES and acquire 40 valor points per boss (total of 18). You must have a level 90 in the group with you to be able to enter.

Guide out of sheer boredom is guide out of sheer boredom.You shouldn't have even bothered to post, just because you don't want to bother with any of these doesn't mean someone else wouldn't. Like say... Someone who has locked their XP at 80 or 85 in order to work on Rep, etc. So I'd recommend you not bother to post in future sections if you don't agree with them.
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.
Wow, you come across as angry. Upset commenter is upset that not everyone wants to play the game exactly like him/her? Personally I love that this stuff is available, and I've already made good use of a few of these pieces on alts. I've also made a tidy profit flipping some of this gear on the AH, so it's obvious that a lot of players are happy to spend a fair bit on gear that might only last 4 or 5 levels. I'm not sure what you consider "top dollar", but I do fairly well on the AH and dropping a couple of thousand gold now and again to make leveling my alts more fun seems reasonable. Not to mention that the big stat boosts from this gear go a long way in being able to handle rares or multiple mob pulls.Your point about replacing this gear relatively quickly at 90 is taken, but as for me I doubt that I'll bother doing repetitive rep grinds on the majority of my alts anyway, so some of the 450 pieces might last well enough until the next expansion.Play how you want, I'm entitled to my opinion as much as you yours. Glad you got some fools to pay for some you've sold though!@polarwind most ppl today have alot of g why should ppl not spend some of em on gear like this and have some fun just because u are a poor grinch and most of this gear last long long time some all the way to 90poor? no. grinch? I'll take that. bah humbug!You wont be replacing that lvl 80 blue until well into Summit or Townlong, which is close to 8 levels, and if you get the Int Staff for lvl 84 you will have it until 90That not those. That ONE blue sure is going to make all the difference! By the way some of these responses are worded, acting like it's gonna take years to level up to 90, if it's gonna take someone that long to level maybe they should drop a chunk of their coin purse on this stuff. Personally it's far too easy to level up fast to where buying this is pointless and a waste.Gear Guide: Twinking with Pandaria Gear Twinking Couldn't even comprehend the title before you started talking, could ya einstein.LOL there's no such thing as twinking in WoW anymore. I would know I used to twink when there actually was twinking and twinking communities. The concept was killed off in Wrath. But your break down of the title is truly masterful! Well done! Gold star for you!And anyone 'twinking' out at level 80 or 85, clearly is too poor to buy the expansions and/or never is going to buy them.
LOL there's no such thing as twinking in WoW anymore.I somewhat agree with this. I never really participated in it but the way I always understood it the central theme of a twink is to find the BiS level appropriate items and any flavor/special items especially those which are challenging to get. Arena Grand Master comes to mind. Above all this you fully understood and mastered your class. Now it seems that a twink represents artificially out-gearing level appropriate content using low level expansion stuff and BoA's.

But your break down of the title is truly masterful! Well done! Gold star for you! So, you mean you used a 70+ To put a leg armor on some lowbie gear, geared out at.....29, 49, 50, 60? And stomped people as much at 8 levels beneath you. And since people can't do that anymore, twinking is dead? lol @ you.And anyone 'twinking' out at level 80 or 85, clearly is too poor to buy the expansions and/or never is going to buy them.Clearly my 90 warrior main and my 80 warrior twink (and 70 rogue, priest, and mage twinks) are all just kidding. I must be delusional thinking I can do both!Thanks for setting me straight, slayer of the lifeless :D
Do not forget that TS armors can net blue versions, which will carry you to 88 before replacements show up from quests.
<huge block of angry text>Why do you care so much about what other people do? It's fine, point and laugh and call everyone stupid but then go home instead of picking fights with strangers. On the internet.
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!
Why is the archaeology pole-arm even on the plate dps tab ? It's an AGILITY weapon and only good for druids and monks, NOT Pallys, warriors, and Dk's, who need strength; not agility.I leveled both a Ret Paladin and a Frost DK using the Spear. Top DPS in every dungeon I went in to, and things died in two swings while questing. Easily critting 100k on the Frost spec by level 87. Those classes may use strength, but the spear (especailly upgraded) has such massive raw Weapon Damage that not having strength on the thing doesn't matter at all.What makes it even better is that the Spear of Xuen is extremely easy to get. I went from 0 to 600 Archeology in one lazy weekend. Changes to the profession made it very simple.Plus, Draenei look awesome using the Polearm/Staff attack animation.
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...
