In the lull between patches, I've been trying to update many of the old popular guides. I think most of the information in this guide is still pretty relevant a few patches later, and I'll add the archaeology weapons in :)
For those bashing the guide and complaining about how it will all be replaced quickly so no bother, you all obviously don't know what the general idea behind a twink is. Once at 85 you turn off xp, the idea is to pvp with these characters and their overpowered gear to destroy anyone who comes up against them. The plan isn't to level or help level faster, although if you do want to waste all the time and resources to get all that gear just to level and replace it be my guest. I am making a paladin 85 twink with this gear and I will be pvping with my xp turned off. It's a great guide and for most of you who don't lnow what you are talking about or know the purpose of twinking a toon, you need to keep your comments to yourself....you just look like an idiot.
Please update the new archeology items like the sword and the gun! :)
SO DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO GET THAT GLOWING GUITAR! I DONT KNOW THE NAME BUT I REALLY WANT IT!
Twinking used to be an art which required a lot of planning ahead (experience gained being one major concern). The Burning Crusade (including vanilla WoW) was the first and last expansion that offered overpowered enchants and armor kits for low level characters. The introduction of heirlooms and nerfing said enchants/armor kits obliterated whatever was left of the "real" twinking community. Does twinking five levels lower than max level even classify as twinking? /discuss
Helped me alot, thanks!
It's a pity the enchants are so nerfed, even though they originally only required level 85 :( Now even some Cataclysm enchants beat the MoP ones.
or i have enough gold to afford them and like not having to replace anything until i hit 90
Keep in mind that this is a TWINKING gear guide for level 80-85. It's not a leveling from 85-90 gear guide so stop suggesting things that require level 86. Please read before you post.
