85 twinks are here come join us part 2

85 xp-off community information

Players that have not upgraded to Mists of Pandaria will automatically be queued in the experience-off bracket. For those that have Mists, join the community by visiting Behsten in Stormwind or Slahtz in Orgrimmar to turn off your experience.

Season 11 (Cataclysmic) gear is available at vendors in Dalaran Sewers and Gadgetzan. Currently there are gear sets missing for hybrid classes. Monks do not have gear available yet. Both these issues are expected to be resolved... sometime.

Advantages of twinking at 85
Fast queues (generally 5-10 minutes during peak hours)
Less gear disparity than many other brackets, particularly 80-84
Healers aren't Godmode like at 70
Zero/minimal bot presence

Disadvantages of twinking at 85
It can be expensive to level professions, gem, and enchant your gear - but once you're done, you're done! No endgame gear treadmill.
Some BiS items require camping either the auction house for rare items or camping rare spawns in Pandaria (but viable alternatives exist)

Professions of note - max level 600
Through Archaeology you can acquire Spear of Xuen, upgradeable through honor to iLvl 471. Also available is Umbrella of Chi-Ji, upgradeable to iLvl 471. To farm these items without a level 90, do not level Archaeology past 525; that way, all your Archaeology sites will be in the Jade Forest.
Alchemy trinkets are also upgradeable to iLvl 466
Blacksmithing allows you to add two more MoP gems to your gear
Engineering has powerful and entertaining tinkers
Herbalism allows you to acquire Water Spirit and Life Spirit in addition to Lifeblood (2880 haste for 20 seconds)

Arenas
To queue for Arenas, you will need to toggle your xp to "on."

Ok, got a start on an updated community information post but I need help. Do you have to toggle xp to do arenas, or is that just a bug at 70?

For professions, I didn't mention many because I think players are familiar enough with the bonuses you get (extra enchanting stats, etc). I just wanted to mention the ones that are A Big Deal.

Vinses, if you can update the original post and include all the wonderful information that I'm sure is incoming, that would be great.

I know that the arch trinket can be upgraded to 471, but isn't the alch trinket only upgradeable to 466 (458 + 8)?

Unless I'm not seeing something on mine.

May as well add <Axiom> - Frostmourne, to Horde guilds. We're basically the same core group that originally started at 60, progressed through each bracket over the years and seem to be focused here for now.

Edit: you can add Umbrella of Chi-Ji to the Arch*-items.

I would accept a 20 minute queue penalty to every future game to never be grouped with the failures in my last AV. Never seen such ignorance in all my days of WoW, it was truly teh most frustrating game in my time.

Quite literally a dozen 6 year olds could have done better.

Blind 6 year olds.

Literally.

Really.

edit- apparently i got my wish with a massive disconnect and complimentary deserter buff. =P

I feel kind of bad about attacking you when you were sitting on the stump. =(
