, we discussed the matter of twinks and PvP. In many occasions, twinks exist purely to PvP, dominating lower-bracket Battlegrounds
with their über-gear. In fact, there is no shortage of twink complaint threads on the World of Warcraft
forums. Whatever one might feel about twinks, it's an ongoing phenomenon that shows no signs of letting up. I'm not a big fan of twinkage myself, but it's such a distinct subset of the PvP crowd that I feel compelled to write about it. Twice. Oh, and for the record, I am quite aware that 'twink'
is a homosexual slang term. I prefer to think of the Hostess snack
So here we go, the second part of our look at twink PvP. Last week we discussed an overview of the potential items that twinks can obtain... I didn't make a comprehensive list since that's a considerable task. I did, however, give some pointers in the right direction
. Considering that Resilience
does not exist in lower level PvP, the key stat is Stamina, so get gear with loads of it. There are also ways to improve on gear, particularly using permanent item enchants. The most notorious of these is probably the Nethercleft Leg Armor
, which requires Level 60 to apply, but has no item restriction. It might cost a bit of gold because it requires Primal Nether
to craft, but the +40 Stamina is well worth it for twinks. Patch 2.4
also promises removing binding on nethers, which may or may not lower prices. For casters, the tailoring equivalents of Golden
and Runic Spellthreads
are also good investments, despite the 20 stamina hit.
