Twinkie Twinkie Little 'Lock...

...Oh how much you truly suck!

Ever wonder what the draw to twinking is? I do. Everytime I run into one in the battlegrounds, actually. I think to myself "Why in the hell would anyone do this?" There's no progression involved. Rarely are they a matter of skill, being that their their stats and gear are several levels above the norm. I mean, they're like a high schooler flexing his peen on the elementary school dodgeball lot. Nothing to be proud about, imho.

Take for example this Warlock I saw in AB last night. Lvl 39, and totally twinked out with +dmg greens, blue and purple BoEs and very high-lvl enchants. Here's the stat sheet:

- Green Lens of Shadow Wrath (+36 Shadow Dmg), Enchanted with +100 HP
- Necklace of Calisea
- Lunar Mantle of Shadow Wrath (+20 Shadow Dmg)
- Royal Cape of Shadow Wrath (+14 Shadow Dmg), Enchanted with +20 Spell Penetration
- Robe of the Magi, Enchanted with +150 Health
- Royal Bands of Shadow Wrath (+14 Shadow Dmg), Enchanted with +15 Spell Dmg
- Black Mageweave Gloves, Enchanted with +20 Spell Dmg
- Defiler's Cloth Girdle
- Shadoweave Pants, Enchanted with +35 Spell Dmg and +20 Stamina
- Defiler's Cloth Boots, Enchanted with +12 Stamina
- Underworld Band x 2
- Defiler's Talisman
- Insignia of the Horde
- Staff of Jordan, Enchanted with Soulfrost
- Jaina's Firestarter


All of that oozing twinkage results in a very impressive 171 Bonus Spell Damage and almost 2300 HP and Mana. Pretty great, I must say. But how satisfying can all of that goodness be when you're rolling around, beating people who are, for the most part, not even half as geared as you are? I mean, really, what's the point?

Barry Bonds complex ftl, imho.

Lol. Twinks are for casuals that either have no interest in seeing end-game or don't have the time to commit to a serious gaming experience.

There is the exception of... someone is playing a twink alt, which in most cases... they're just really bored. Whatever. :)

Dunno man, even for a twink his gear is pretty lame. Staff of Jordan? Eww. Would've been better off with another of Shadow Wrath piece, imo.

What's sad tho... there are a lot of people @ lvl 70 that have the Frozen Shadoweave set... that will seriously use an Of Shadow Wrath wand over a stat wand... simply because they think their +shadow damage is ALL that matters.

EWWWWW. Shit annoys me.

Oooh... and I am TOTALLY bored. It's been like 3 or 4 days now without WoW. DEAR GOD GIMME A JOB PLZ. Good news is, computer may be in the process of showin some love. I hope. D:

Btw, wtf did you want on AIM the other day?

No interest in end-game or a serious gaming experience, or they just have a superiority complex and can't handle anything but kicking the crap out of people. So, they play on the elementary courts with their big boy gear. So sad.

The Shadow Wrath stuff I can at least kinda understand (even though I don't agree with it), whereas the twinkage seems pointless. I guess some people get enjoyment out of things like that though. Whatever.

Umm. Hmm. AIM. Not a clue. It was probably something stupid. "How're the kittens. Has Blawle proposed yet." Stuff like that. =P

Lol, who knows. I called you to find out cuz its kinda unusual for you to AIM me these days... was worried it was something serious. =p

The worst kind of people though are the ones who whine on messageboards about how unfair it is that they can't win at something they put no effort into.

Gotta love those people
