Hello, my name's Huntastic. As you all know, the PvP environment at max level (90) currently is horrible with the heals being little to none, warriors getting RNG crits that practically one shot you, and just burst is out of control.

Remember, that when you twink, you need to turn your XP off, which can be done by going near the battlemaster in Stormwind, which is near a room close to the king.

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.

You might be curious as to what we have to offer, and I'm going to tell you.

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 amazing like at level 70, but aren't near horrid like Discipline Priests at 90.
- There is literally no bots, as you know, that people enjoy twinking, and why would they bot it? xD

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 grinding over and over again.
- Some BiS (Best in Slot) items require camping either the auction house for rare items or camping rare spawns in Pandaria, although viable alternatives DO exist.

Professions of note - max level 600
- Through Archaeology you can acquire Spear of Xuen, Umbrella of Chi-Ji and Quilen Statuette which are all upgradable 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 increases the effects of almost all consumables as well as offering Zen Alchemist Stone, also upgradable 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).

Other Items of Note
- Sun-Lute of the Phoenix King (BiS 2-hander available from BMAH, armory link not yet working)
- Kafa Press
- Crystal of Insanity

Arenas
To queue for Arenas, you will need to toggle your xp to "on", which can be done by going to the same guy you turned it on, for a measly 10 gold.

Rated Battlegrounds
RBGs are starting, with several guilds having participated in at least one game. Direct your attention to some of the larger guilds if RBGs interest you. <chill for a minute> and <chill for a moment> are planning Draft RBG nights in the future once they have the numbers to do so, although if we get some more 85 twinks on Drak'thul, I will be leading some RBG's and helping YOU guys gear up and get more knowledge of your class, so you can count <Soldiers of Death> to be part of this too.

Raiding

You left a ton out, but PvP is NOT broken at 90.
