Patch 3.2 = Death to Twinks
This is not so much Disc (or Shadow) Priest related, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to comment on some of the new battleground changes that have been announced. Specifically, that you will be able to earn experience through battlegrounds after Patch 3.2, that the experience gain can be deactivated for a 10g fee, and that those who have disabled battleground experience will play in their own separate battlegrounds.
What this means for twinks is:
1) you will have a ridiculously short career in each battleground bracket as a twink, as BG experience will level you into the next bracket and lose your twink status; or
2) you will turn off battleground experience, and be forced to play in battlegrounds full of twinks like yourself, which will normalize your gear, and de-twink you.
Either way, your days of pwning other participants in battlegrounds will be officially over.
Now some of you may say that twinks are not about pwning normal toons in BGs, to which I say BULLSHIT.
Forcing twinks to play against other twinks all the time will completely kill off twinking.
I also love the spin coming from Blizz that this change is actually being made in support of the twink lifestyle. That is some great bullshiting going on there.
So twink it up while you still can. I will shed no tears for your loss come Patch 3.2.
