Level 19 PvP Hunter Twink Armor

A twink is a player character that is disproportionately powerful for its level, possessing potent items and high-end enchants that are generally way beyond the means of other players at that level. Twink items are acquired through rare drops, drops off of bosses in instances, as rewards from very difficult to complete quests, as gifts, or from the Auction House. Twink items on the Auction House are usually very expensive. The enchantments twinks typically have on their equipment can be performed only by higher level characters at the top of the enchanting profession and are usually very expensive. Therefore, twinking usually requires significant assistance from high-level alts, friends, and / or guild members. However, there are examples of self-made twinks that generate the necessary gold from Auction House trading or other in-game methods. Twinks are mainly used in PVP fighting or in Battlegrounds. WoW Wiki

Head

Normally, you don’t get headgear with stats until sometime in your 20’s which is why you’ll see twinks have maxed their engineering profession skill (at 150) so that they can make and equip Green Tinted Goggles. Again, for a first-time player, taking up engineering and leveling it fast is expensive but either way I found this guide to leveling engineering to be very useful. The other (and indeed better) hat to get would be the Lucky Fishing Hat and is a reward for catching the rare Keefer’s Angelfish off the coast of Stranglethorn Vale during the fishing competition held every Sunday. Mind out for the crocs!

Shoulders

The Serpent’s Shoulders are a Bind-on-Pickup (BoP) drop from Lady Anacondra in the loot-heavy Wailing Caverns (WC) instance situated in the Barrens. You’ll be wanting to come here as early as possible with a high-level friend to do the killing for you if you want any chance of getting all the drops to yourself before you reach level 20. Alternatively you could pay a visit to Shadowfang Keep (SFK) and kill Rethilgore the cell keeper to get yourself some Rugged Spaulders, again BoP. The good thing about both these bosses though is that they are very close to the instance entrances so you should be able to reset the instance over and over until the item drops.

Wrists

These Forest Leather Bracers are Bind on Equip (BoE) and are a random drop from a wide range of mobs and zones. Best bet is to keep an eye on the Auction House.

Hands

Gloves of the Fang are a BoE drop from Druids of the Fang inside the Wailing Caverns. Keep a lookout in the Auction House if they don’t drop.

Back

The Wailing Caverns sure do provide a ton of gear! The Glowing Lizardscale Cloak is a BoP drop from Skum, a Thunder Lizard patiently awaiting you in his guarded enclosure. The Tail Spike dropped for me instead so I disenchanted it and ended up getting a cheap Sentry Cloak off the Auction House. I love it when people don’t install the Auctioneer addon 🙂 Naturally if it’s on the Auction House it’s BoE and that means it’s a random drop off mobs in the level 23-26 range.

Chest

What a complete bitch it is to get Blackened Defias Armor, the best chest item for hunters (and rogues) at this level. It is a BoP item off Edwin VanCleef, the end boss in the Deadmines of Westfall. That’s Alliance territory and an epic foot journey for the Horde starting in Booty Bay, southern Stranglethorn Vale. I think it’s the only piece I’ve never owned despite numerous runs with my rogues. Huge congratulations if this drops for you! Knowing the futility of it then I settled for a Bandit Jerkin of Power with +16 Attack Power off the Auction House for only a few gold. You might also want to consider the Prospector’s Chestpiece another random drop.

Waist

Again from the Deadmines but thankfully BoE the Blackened Defias Belt is de rigeur and on my server at least goes for a modest 5g. If you have a high level character you might just as well go and solo run the Deadmines for kicks and drops to sell / use. Alternatively for the Horde, there’s the Screecher Belt a quest reward from the quest Bloodfury Bloodline in the Charred Valley of Stonetalon Mountains. You need to be level 19 to get the quest (the second of a two-part quest line). You’ll most likely need help. The final (not to say lesser) option is the player-crafted Deviate Scale Belt made from components found in, you guessed it, the Wailing Caverns. If you’re a skinner, you might be lucky enough to collect the materials yourself and get a friendly leatherworker to make them for you.

Legs

Ok, the stats for Leggings of the Fang are pretty good but it’s a BoP item (a drop off Lord Cobrahn in, anyone…? anyone….? Wailing Caverns). Why’s that a problem? Enchants! Another post to follow but essentially you will want a level 60 to apply Leg Armor to your leggings—and this can’t be done with BoP items. The WoW Armory suggested Bluegill Breeches which are farmable *groans* from the Wetlands murlocs or as an alternative you could look out for Rigid Leggings of Power, both from the Auction House.

Feet

Here’s a turn up for the books, the BoP Footpads of the Fang drop from Lord Serpentis in Wailing Caverns. If you have deep pockets or a lucky drop then the Feet of the Lynx would be a suitable alternative.

Rings

The Seal of Sylvanas is a quest reward for Arugal Must Die set in Shadowfang Keep. Another ring of note is the Bounty Hunter’s Ring a quest reward for Hezrul Bloodmark a quest available from a bunker to the west of the Crossroads in the Barrens. Once you’ve got some PvP badges and honor points you will want to get a Legionnaire’s Band from Kelm Hargunth, the Warsong Supply Officer in the Barrens on the northern border with Ashenvale. You’ll need 95 honor and 20 badges to purchase this.

Necklace

I’m using a player-crafted +3 stamina necklace but the obvious choice once you have enough PvP points is the Scout’s Medallion reward, again purchased from Kelm.

  2. Thank you for the break down it is very clear and well laid out saved me the trouble of shifting through the forums.

  3. WOOT I already have the Serpet Shoulders, Blackened Defias Armor (Dropped both times on my 2 first ever runs :)), Gloves of the Fang, Blackened Defias Belt, Glowing Lizardscale Cloak, and My weapon is Taskmaster Axe from Sneed in Deadmines with Icy Chill Enchant! My level 70 friend is gettin me Cobrahide leg armor for Dark Leather Pants! Woot!

    All i need is the Footpads of the Fang, Green Tinted Goggles (7 more engineerin levels), Forest Leather Bracers and the Rings 🙂

  4. Just a question re: the enchant. Wouldn’t agility or AP be a better enchant for a hunter. Icy is more for rogues though my choice there would be Mongoose.

  5. For the appropriate twink lvl – obviously those don’t work on 19 twink weapons 😛

  6. ok first of all. lucky fishing hat with +100 health from libram of constitution quest is the best. WSG necklace is best necklace. Serpent’s Shoulders are best, get sentry cloak with +3 agility enchaant. TUNIC OF WESTFALL for chest with +100 health. forest leather bracers with +9 stamina. Twisted CHanter’s staff with +25 agility for weapon, and Venomstrike with +3 Damage scope. Scouting gloves of the moneky or GLoves of the Fang with +15 agility. Deviate Scale Belt, Scouting Trousers of the Monkey with +40 STamina, +12 Agility armor kit. NAT PAGLE’S EXTREME ANGLIN’ BOOTS are best with Boar’s SPeed Enchant. rings, get Seal of Wrynn and the WSG ring. Arena Grand Master and Insignia of the Alliance are your trinkets. get a BOar as a pet for the 1 second stun, it really helps. if anyone doubts me, email me cause im right 🙂

  7. ^ A summation of the three posts I’ve made on the subject, with the twist of Alliance rewards. Although you can’t put +40 stam, +12 agi armor kits on low gear anymore.

    Uh, I just did a week or two ago?

  9. I am back again making another twink… this time lv 19 hunter i have a lv 19 rouge called twinkly on the nightfall battlegroup and you might of seen i commented on the lv 39 gear as i made a lv 39 hunter twink.(whihc i have now lvled due to the fact allience suck in this braket)

    anyway i am not going to critizie your item choices because they are fairly good however whoeve thinks leggings of the fang are good you are true n00bs as you cannot get them enchanted. also i would say no need for black difilas armour thing because tunic of westfall for allience is much better choice as a hunter wants to crit from a distance and not engage close comabat which now leads onto the weapons

    reading some of these comments i would just like to say (ICY IS THE WORST POSSIBLE ENCHANT FOR A ROUGE OR A HUNTER IT IS S**T) i will tell you why.

    icy will slow your target (if it procs) YOU HAVE WINGCLIP!!!!! no need for it …25 agility!

    secondly you mentioned icy being good for rouges … this is a lie because you need something to cause a damage proc if you cannot aford +15 agility on both ie firey or lifestealing because icy (if procs) will only slow your target this is no gd if u r both fighting close quarters (ok i find it anoying on my rouge) but in the end i walk away alive.

  10. i will list my recomended gear

    head: lucky fishing hat
    neck: pvp reward
    body: tunic of westfall(allience)
    wrists: forest leather bracers
    gloves: Gloves of the fang or Scouting gloves of the monkey but has to be +4stam +4agility (becarful not to buy +4 +3)
    legs: scouting legs of the monkey
    feet: feet of the lynx
    belt: devaite scale belt
    weapons: 2hand staff twisted enchanters staff +25 agility Venomstrike +3 damage scope
    trinkets arena grand master,isingard of allience (or howver u spell it)
    rings seel of wryne and protectors band.

    if you folow this list and the help listed on this website you cannot go wrong 😀

    rember u need enchants if you would like e to comment with the enchants just ask ….i suspect i will vist agian when i have made my twink have fun
