    Since patch 8.2.5 dropped you can now join any level BG as a level 120 character as long as you queue with someone in that level bracket in your party.

    For example, today I joined a level 20-29 BG on my Death Knight because I queued with a level 25 druid.

    Has anyone done an analysis on the scaling of the gear in this scenario and whether or not this will make 120s viable twinks for any bracket?

    Its decent with the few possible advantages you can have, but unless they lighten up on the restrictions a little bit I dont believe it will ever be fully plausible.

    The only thing really rn is Veng DH wsg 10-19 FC imo. Dks are good at low levels too but all the enchants and shit stop working besides runeforged dk weps

    Im shocked nobody has looked into this yet. You'd think at least a few threads detailing the various ins and outs would have popped up by now.

    Do you expect anything less though?

    Seriously, if 120s had a real advantage over twinks, would you guys actually play "120 twinks"?

    If your answer to this question is yes...just leave our community now

    Of course they are.

    But playing endgame to twink is somewhat contradictory, is it not? Only the real ones wouldn't migrate

    I don't know why you're being so hostile about this. I have 3 39 twinks I was playing a TON in BFA, but then Blizzard ruined it by separating xp off BGs. If this offers a way to somehow twink again I'm all for it.

    Perhaps I'm just missing how twinking otherwise is even possible right now? I'm not going to make a new account just to play a level 20.

    If by "twinking" you just mean "playing low level BGs" then sure yea.

    But "twinking" isnt just low level pvp. By definition, you cannot "twink" a 120. Thats just end game.

    There is no reason as to why you cant try to make a difference and coordinate some sort of event for your 39s. Before and after the separation we were doing 39 10v10 wargames every week. It stopped because everyone found interest in the 59 wargames.
    There is no reason as to why you couldn't have tried to get activity going...This game is full of "follow the leader" players. There are ways to play your twinks, people are just too lazy to find them.

    Up until classic launch activity was a very realistic possibility. If you want to twink that bad get on classic and start working towards it. Or make a veteran character. It'll be a breath of fresh air.

    my 120 when zone/scaled in a BG 20-29,
    just his 450 ilvl chest piece scales to -
    17 str
    33 stam. all traits are gone, I don't play 29's but seems like big stats. if you farmed good gear with no mastery, stat stick trinkets could work.
    I kept all his 60 gear in bank too, goin to be playin around other brackets see wat there like.

    check his actual stats though. bout 130-135 str and like 1800 health? I think scaled characters are templated, regardless of their gear

    That tracks with my like... lvl 76 DKs stats. So it does look templated.

    looks that way,
    my plan was to play around with it today when I drag myself outa bed. but I might just play around with the 60 bracket instead now,
    I still got all his 60 gear in bank
    Screenshot (96).png
    want to see if eng, enchants gems ect work in higher brackets. could find broken stuff, slips through the cracks.
    edit- unless sum1 already tested and has the info.
