    Are they really that much worse? What is it, a talent and mastery? Is the gear roughly the same for 70 and 79?

    The gear, mastery and talent. I’m not going to lie playing against them does make for some fun games and challenges and beating them is extra rewarding. But when they have double 79 comps or 2 79 healers it becomes close to impossible

    I feel your pain, I just didn't think it was that bad anymore with everything so squished.

    On my 79 mage which has the most 70 gear of my 79s, I only wear 6 70 pieces. On my 79 hunter I wear precisely 0. Well budgeted cloth haste gear is very hard to come by.

    A 70 only bracket would kill 70 twinking though wouldn't it? Kinda like when XP on/off queues were separated.

    It sure wouldn’t, plenty of 70 twinks to make bgs happen, and would incentivize those playing 79 to come to 70 If they wanted ques

    In EU it would, perhaps because we're a smaller region. Combining 79s and 70s here there are almost never enough queueing to fill even a 10v10. I'd rather be lumped in with the levellers and get the pops. RIP Cata when 70 twinks were actually best (at least on par with 72 rets and the shamans with the ulduar level BoA fists)

    Us would be fine, although I don’t want Eu to have to struggle with ques, but I’d like a reason for people to have to make 70s and stick to them instead of making 79s

    and cata 70-72 disparage was not on par lol, you missed key ability’s at the worst time, and ability damage at 72 was through the roof with nifflevar.

    Idk I remember frequent 6k+ ice lances on 0 resi players with my 70 frost mage which could global almost anyone. Full int stacked with wizard oil when int also gave crit %. It felt on par with 72 rets. Enhance was a kind of trash spec back then, fairly immobile but with high damage if they connected. As a frost mage I guess my perspective is a little biased because I had the best control in the game.

    I think you might have missed the mark with that 119 rogue, tho.

    edit- the decision, not the gear.

    Bracket is fun but gearing process was horrible. I rolled fairly low on my quest procs, then missed time-walking and anniversary event, so she's basically a dirt-tier twink in that bracket. I enjoy 70-79s more anyway, it's actually a more even playing field than up there. 119 twinks have 70-90k hp while levellers have 35-60k.

    I meant the class/spec choice. Looking at your others.

    Besides TW gear being mostly crap, does it really count as GFd? Always did like your mog though.

    Fair War. I'm about 50% FOTM and 50% otherwise. It's a shame that picking the most fun classes comes with disrespect on forums, but the fun is worth the cost. It's not my fault mage is a hella fun class. A lot like all the rogue 70s that chat shit as if sub wasn't the other FOTM spec in Cata (as well as Disc)
