    Hello,
    I am completely new to twinking. I created assassination rogue alt which is now level 79. I have many alts which can create all kinds of gems/enchants and gear and I have money to buy stuff which I can't do. So I started some enchanting and reading of posts but really so many things are new for me. And i am really a noob on rogue - i find it difficult - with all those openers and usage of combo points in different situations. So i have some questions below.
    1. Is assassination good for PVP (especially for a person who is yet not so proficient at this class) and is there a huge difference between other specs of rogues for PVP.
    2. Is level 79 good for rogues at all?
    3. Why people (here) use mostly lev 70 rogues as twink instead lev 79 when lev 79 can use mastery and has another talent at level 75 which is quite big (in my noobish opinion).
    4. What are best talents for assassination rogue/enchants (I have seen lev 70 subtlety guide but I don't know if it's valuable for 79 assassination rogue)?
    5. what about enchants - should i go on weapons with deadly navigation and quick navigation or other enchants.
    6. Should i always enchant with an agility which is my base stat or goes instead for haste (mostly as my second stat) or crit (?) on gear other than rings (on rings i use +4 haste).
    7. Should I at all enchant some gear with mastery?
    8. Why on subtlety 70 guide some parts are enchanted with attack power? Should i go there with crusher on gloves or agility or haste?
    9. What about versatility and PVP stat (on bc PVP gear)? Ate those stats important?
    10. I mostly use heirloom gear which has some good stats for me (for now as fresh 79) and some parts from bgs and dungeons but ofc heirloom does not have gem slots and i think there is better gear out there. So what is the best place to look - WotLK dungeons or bc dungeons (bc gear have slots but some wotlk too) which scale to toon or go for lev 70 HC bc dungeons or lev 70 raids but i don't know if they scale to toon?
    11. Is Touch of the Void trinket any good now? I haven't played since WOD (garrison killed me) and at that time it was amazing on lower levels but i heard stories that now is not working.
    12. Is there a benefit to have lower basic stats on bc gear and socket it with gems? Can i use only bc gems on bc gear and WotLK gems on wotlk gear? Is there a big difference to have WotLK gems on wotlk scaled gear instead bc gems on bc gear even when the first ones mostly have fewer sockets?
    13. Is there any site where i can calculate my toon (like askmrrobot) and check gear scaled to 79?
    14. Can someone link me some 79 twinks to check their gear? That may help me immensely.

    Yes, i have a lot of questions so thx if you can help me.

    This question has been asked a lot recently. Here is my explanation from a previous thread:
    Basically there's a much larger community around level 70 twinking because of tradition. On the european realms level 79 "twinks" are seen as a blight upon the bracket.

    A little too much for me to unpack there OP, but I can at least give you an armory to ponder.

    My homeboy has been working on his 79 rogue and she's coming along. Grinding out the helm for the 4-piece dungeon set currently, but she's pretty solid already.

    'On the european realms level 79 "twinks" are seen as a blight upon the bracket by a handful of vocal salty 70 players who - while being jealous of an extra talent, mastery, and slightly better scaled enchants and dungeon drops - refuse to level their character due to a sense nostalgia and a fear of no longer belonging to the 70 community which they strive to preserve with ill-placed toxicity.' - fixed.

    @OP Assa isn't hard, you will be fine. It's okay to be 79 just like it's okay to be gay. Don't let the Westborough Baptist 70s stop you being you. I've played with many great 70s who are kind and welcoming to 79s.

    How brave of you to tag me, tomxoqt ;)

    I don't think this is true. 79s are seen in the same way 74s were seen in patch 5.3 by the majority of the bracket.

    Of course nobody in their right mind would level up their twink. Many players in the 70 bracket have had their characters for well over 5 years. Besides, "never level a twink" is a rule that is rarely broken without regret.
    None of this would stop a 70 twink from creating a new level 79 character though.
    So why don't they? Because they don't just want to queue battlegrounds. They also want a large community, guilds, access to more resources, events, raiding and tournaments, etc..

    You obviously don't care about the 70 community and you are obviously ill informed about it.
    The bracket was generally super toxic and gatekeeping many years ago (during cata+mop) but nowadays it's much more friendly and welcoming. So no, our bracket isn't being "preserved with toxicity", because toxicity doesn't preserve any kind of community.

    I don't understand. As an individual, are you the majority of the community? The 70-79 bracket is mostly non-twinks and I think that most of them hate a 70 twink as much as a 79 when they're being 100-0d by us in 4 seconds.

    I levelled my 70 priest and mage, no regrets.

    I think the 70 community is great, but ill-directed toxicity such as slandering a group that you personally disapprove of as a 'blight' is not the way to preserve it. You as an individual are the blight.

    When people say "the 70 bracket" they usually mean "the 70 twink community", not referring to all the levelers.
    You know, the same way when someone says "the 19 bracket is really toxic" they're talking about the 19 twinks. Not suggesting that all the random levelers from 10-19 are toxic.

    I was just informing you what the general opinion of 79 "twinks" are within the 70 bracket- I mean the 70 twinking community. ;)
    For the record, since you're so curious about me personally, I hold the same view.

    I'm sorry if your particular way of playing in the bracket isn't liked by most of the other (TWINK) participants. But crying out and making it about "toxicity" when really it's about your own feelings doesn't fool anyone.

    Of course it's your view - you are just presenting it as if it is every 70's view.

    Yes, nobody in the 70 twink community liked level 72 and level 74 twinks in 5.3. They also didn't like them in the beginning of patch 5.4. They also don't like level 79 twinks now.

    It's just painfully obvious that you're out of touch with the 70 twink community. I don't know why you're trying to pretend to know anything about it. Stop.

    I don't know why you're trying to speak for them is my point.

    71 - 79 twinks focus purely on PvP. That is fine.
    But the people who twink at 70 have the PvE aspect as well, and even if it's just once in a blue moon that they'd join, they still have that choice. They prefer having that choice over making a 79 twink that will maybe one day get bracketed out or nerfed of messed over. Being in a community is a big thing. And the communities exist because of their PvE focus. You don't need a group to do PvP. Just a few friends and you're off. But for PvE, and events, and other stuff like that?
    You need a guild. And to do those with some aspect of fun, you have to be the appropriate level; 70, rather than just always roflstomping everything. And be honest; no challenge = no fun. (Maybe at the start, never long term.)

    Every 70 twink that I know that levelled their character, even to 72, 74, or 79 for a PvP advantage, has regretted it.

    71-79 twinks are basically twinks that choose to stay away from the majority to get an advantage over them. Of course they will dislike you as a result. But it's also generally ill-advised because you will lose many opportunities, and you might not always be at the top, at which point you might go "Oh I wish I was 70 again".

    Agree with what you say. From the beginning I have been supportive of 70s as I have twinked at 70 from cataclysm through to 8.0. What I don't understand is the crying/bitchy/salty attitude people hold towards 79s. It's their choice to be 79 and not 70 just like it's a 70's choice to be 70 and not 79.

    To reiterate, myself and my 70 mage friend have both levelled to 79 with no regrets.

    I have just been calling out the baseless negativity and salt against 79s and people that feel entitled to speak on behalf of others.

    When you have a barrier that you don't want to reach, you get angry at other people that have.
    They weighed out their own negatives and positives, and found the negatives greater than the positive, long or short term. As a result, there's no reason to agree with those who did make the choice to take the negatives anyway.

    Whatever is out of reach, arbitrarily or literally, that is something people will hate others for getting anyway. Jealousy sometimes, but not the case here I'd say. More a case of.. You chose to cripple yourself from everything but one thing, to win at that one thing.

    I'm really not saying anything controversial.
    Why are you acting like you need scientific data to know the general attitude of a pretty tight-knit community towards a given topic? I don't need to poll the 49 twink community to find out if they generally consider fury warriors overpowered or not. It's obvious to anyone who is a part of it.

    I think you're vastly overestimating the "hate" you 79s are getting from the community. Most peoples feelings (including my own) are probably closer to apathy than hate. Still, the existence of 79 twinks is a negative to the 70 twinks. Not enough to warrant this "crying/bitchy/salty" behavior that you are apparently seeing. But enough to prefer that 79s didn't exist.

    Kind of like how I feel about certain classes; I wish people didn't roll them or that they didn't exist in the game, but they do. And that's not the end of the world. But if someone asks me what class to roll you best believe I'm not going to suggest one of those.

    A fair perspective and I welcome it :) What I welcome even more is that you're not attempting to assign your opinion to others as some in this thread have.

    I've always been a bg/arena boy at heart, which is why I opted for 79. I personally don't care for raiding old expacs, and in EU unless you're on Argent Dawn alliance or Stormscale horde, there is little in terms of 70 community (at least from what I have seen).

    I'd say it's good overall. If you want more crit you can take the dungeon set 2 piece, but honestly the haste you get from Sunwell pieces is better for SP.
    KJ Tattered Drape of Antonidas cloak beats my cloak, I just don't own it.
    Dark Conjuror's Collar is better than my head.
    I'd also take the offhand I have on my mage (my SP had completed the quest years ago).
    Finally, in addition to the Halls of Stone ring, the https://www.wowhead.com/item=43253/ring-of-northern-tears would be my 2nd choice if I wasn't on a shitty dead realm with no old-school JCs. Alternatively, the 2 socket ring from JC is good, or the MGT Kaelthas ring.
    https://www.wowhead.com/item=133461/timbals-focusing-crystal is also an excellent trinket that I equip sometimes.

    SP makes an excellent twink in this bracket. My favourite is fire mage though.

    Stat prio should be int > haste > versa > crit.
    She really needs a new OH.

    Missed your comment. In the end dude, you're the one telling a guy that's new to our community, that has come here asking for our help and guidance, that you and others see him as nothing more than a blight.

    Read the OP and my response again. He's asking specifically why people are rolling 70 over 79. It's a really good question because the answer isn't obvious at first glance. I gave the best answer I could. Notice how there was no hostility in my message.

    Now read your first post in this thread and compare. It's super ironic because it simultaneously cries about perceived toxicity while being the most toxic post in the thread.
