Be wary of twinked priests, they are a pain too!
Human holy priest with engineering for a little more burst was my go to :twisted: Jump in circles casting renew and fear in group fights you basically can't die, good times. Next to impossible to solo kill with but fun none the less!
Kind of like lvl19 disc priests in legion, so fucking hard to kill!

Sometimes annoying the enemy is even better than killing them :)

Welcome btw!

Wasn't twinking an original gold sink back in Vanilla? The items were just so expensive on the AH. I can hardly imagine any twinks running around at least in the beginning. It always seemed to me as a luxury activity for the dedicated players.

It is a gold sink, however I don't think you need to be specially dedicated. A rogue or Hunter can get by with these items, where I'd say only Feet of the Lynx and Scouting Gloves are the somewhat expensive parts. Enchants you can progressively get better ones; there are some cheap ones that will make you competitive though.

Retail Legion stats, but same items. WoWhead only thing that worked.

How would you farm the BiS BoP items for level 19 rogue twink without actually dinging 20 accidentally? It is a question of luck, when you think about it. Considering the fact that there was no option to turn off the experience bar back in Vanilla.

Or you must have a special group of people who would allow you to join the only the needed boss fights in such instances as WC. Which is a bit complicated to accomplish, if you ask me. :razz:

You have to plan out the quests needed so that you're done before hitting 19. Good idea to explore the whole map too. Wailing Caverns / Shadowfang etc. can be done by going into the dungeon at the time of a given boss drop you need. The level 60 clears everything else while you wait outside.

The fun thing about Rogues in Vanilla is that despite that one insanely annoying player that keeps rolling you over and over, not all Rogues were capable of playing the class to the level required for PvP dominance. It has a relatively high skill cap to play properly and dedicating yourself to PvP means taking engineering and honing your skills. Even though some Rogues completely dominate that's only if they mastered a relatively complex class and spent the time to create a finely honed weapon that took precision and experience. A bad rogue is hilariously useless in PvP. A good rogue is the stuff of nightmares.
I do not doubt that player skills in MMO gaming has increased, so we will see many deadly rogue, moreso than they were during actual Classic. However, this is equally true for every other class as well. We are going to see ‘sick’ plays from every class in Classic I believe.
This is so true - the min maxing today will be unreal. People have far better access to the learning resources required to play at that level now, and we will definitely see some f***ing annoying rogues around.

I was thinking one day, that part of original Vanilla experience, which is actually irreversible, is general playerbase being, well, innocently dumb :smile:

2006 looks like kindergarten compared to today's level of theorycrafting, resources and archives available. Literally everything is on the palm of your hand. I'm actually quite interested to find out how it will impact the course of the game. Basically - we're gonna be living in the Back to the Future movie, when everything upcoming is known already.

Yes and no - sure access to resources is great and all but what about the resources themselves? I can see priv server stuff being kind of relevant but it may need to be rewritten depending on the way blizz decide to handle classic. A lot of good stuff has already disappeared from the net by now

it will still take time for people to learn the game again with all its subtleties

I've never actually twinked a character in Classic WoW, but after reading this thread it sounds like twinking a rogue would be great fun. Might have to give it a try!
