The Ultimate Guide To Lvl 19 Rogue Twinking Pt III

Now that you?ve chosen your race and began to gather your gear, let?s put everything into perspective by taking a look at your gear abroad. As a 19 Rogue you?ll want to focus on two stats: Stamina and Agility.  Stamina of course increases your hit points, and Agility provides attack power, critical strike rating, armor, and dodge rating. To keep things simple I will list the best pieces of gear you can acquire for each armor slot, and how to get them.

Part 3: Obtaining Your Armor

Head

  • [Green Tinted Goggles] – Unless you get lucky, this will probably be your helm for quite some time. Can be made and equipped at 150 Engineering.
  • [Lucky Fishing Hat] – The absolute best helm avaliable. Can only be obtained through the Stranglethorn Vale Fishing Extravaganza, (See bottom of this page for more information).

Neck

  • [Sentinel’s Medallion] / [Scout’s Medallion] – This is an item that you?ll need to pick up after farming some honor. This Warsong Gulch PvP reward will run you 65 honor and 20 Warsong Battle Marks. Available from vendors outside of the in-game entrances to Warsong Gulch for each faction.

Shoulders

  • [Serpent’s Shoulders] – Hands down the only shoulders you?ll ever need. Pick these up from Lady Anacondra in Wailing Caverns in The Barrens.

Back

  • [Sentry Cloak] – Being a BoE world drop, you?ll likely have to pick this up from the Auction House. Expect to dish out 100g or more for this item.

Chest

  • [Blackened Defias Armor] – Overall the best chest piece because of its huge stamina boost. Grab this from Edwin Van Cleef in The Deadmines in Westfall.
  • [Tunic of Westfall] (Alliance Only) – This chest is also very good due to its huge agility boost. Rewarded from a questline in Westfall. (See Getting To Level 19 for more information.)

Wrists

Hands

Waist

  • [Deviate Scale Belt] – The best belt available. This item is crafted by Leatherworkers and is BoE. Pick this up on the Auction House or have a Leatherworker craft it for you.
  • [Belt of the Fang] – Another option with the same stats but less spirit. Pick this belt up from Lady Anachondra in The Wailing Caverns in The Barrens.

Legs

Feet

  • [Feet of the Lynx] – Being a BoE world drop, you?ll likely have to pick this up from the Auction House. Expect to dish out 100g or more for this item.
  • [Nat Pagle’s Extreme Anglin’ Boots] – These boots are picked up from the Stranglethorn Vale Fishing Extravaganza (discussed in a later article). What makes these boots the best is the fact that they are enchantable with post-Burning Crusade enchants. (See bottom of this page for more information).

Rings

  • [Seal of Wrynn] / [Seal of Sylvanas] – Pick this ring up from its quest line in Westfall or Silverpine Forest.
  • [Protector’s Band] / [Legionnaire’s Band] – This is an item that you?ll need to pick up after farming some honor. This Warsong Gulch PvP reward will run you 65 honor and 20 Warsong Battle Marks. Available from vendors outside of the in-game entrances to Warsong Gulch for each faction.
  • [Blood Ring] – Stamina ring. This item is a BoE world drop, and depending on your server, it is most likely outrageously overpriced on the Auction House.
  • [Meadow Ring of Eluding] – Dodge ring. This item is a BoE world drop, and depending on your server, it is most likely outrageously overpriced on the Auction House.

Trinkets

Melee Weapons

  • [Shadowfang] – The best main-hand sword available at 19. This item is BoE and an extremely rare world drop in Shadowfang Keep in Silverpine Forest. Expect to dish out hundreds if not thousands of gold for this sword, that is, if you can even find it.
  • [Assassin’s Blade] – The best dagger available at 19. This item is BoE and an extremely rare world drop in Shadowfang Keep in Silverpine Forest. Expect to dish out hundreds if not thousands of gold for this dagger, that is, if you can even find it.
  • [Cruel Barb] – An alternative main-hand sword. Pick this up from Edwin Van Cleef in The Deadmines in Westfall.
  • [Thief’s Blade] – An alternative off-hand sword. Pick this up from Mr. Smite in The Deadmines in Westfall.
  • [Protector’s Sword] / [Legionnaire’s Sword] – Another alternate main-hand sword. This Warsong Gulch PvP reward will run you 214 honor and 30 Warsong Battle Marks. Available from vendors outside of the in-game entrances to Warsong Gulch for each faction.
  • [Sentinel’s Blade] / [Scout’s Blade] – Another alternate dagger. This Warsong Gulch PvP reward will run you 214 honor and 30 Warsong Battle Marks. Avaliable from vendors outside of the in-game entrances to Warsong Gulch for each faction.

Ranged Weapon

  • [Venomstrike] – The best bow at 19. Pick this up from Lord Serpentis in The Wailing Caverns in The Barrens.
  • [Outrunner’s Bow] / [Outrider’s Bow] – Alternate bow. This Warsong Gulch PvP reward will run you 214 honor and 30 Warsong Battle Marks. Available from vendors outside of the in-game entrances to Warsong Gulch for each faction.

Hopefully by now you have a pretty good idea of what they need to be looking for in twink items. This list is not definitive because even at 19 there is some degree of leeway in gear, but these items are the best of the best.

Special Armor and How To Get It

The Stranglethorn Vale Fishing Extravanganza

Held every Sunday between 2PM and 4PM server time. This event offers two very important items for 19 Twinks: [Lucky Fishing Hat] and [Nat Pagle’s Extreme Anglin’ Boots]. But what makes these items so special? Aside from their absolutely ridiculous stats, [Nat Pagle’s Extreme Anglin’ Boots] are considered by the game to be a lvl 40 item. This means that enchants that ?requires item level 39 or higher? can be applied to these shoes, even though you?ll be wearing them at lvl 19. Getting these two pieces is fairly simple, but takes some degree of luck and alot of patience. Not only will you be trying to fish up certain ?special fish? to turn in for these items, you?ll be doing it in a lvl 40 zone. Interesting, isn?t it? But it?s not all bad, there are a couple of safe locations to cast your line.

First and foremost you?ll need to get your fishing to 150. This is fairly easy and can be done in about 30 minutes in Stormwind/Orgrimmar. After you?ve topped out your fishing be sure to pick up (or craft) some [Aquadynamic Fish Attractor]. When applied to your fishing pole these increase your fishing skill by 100, making you able to fish in Stranglethorn Vale. When Sunday rolls around head to Booty Bay before 2PM and get ready to fish! There are two areas I usually fish in: Yojamba Island, and south of Booty Bay. See a map here.

Yojamba Island (north-west) is the most safe area to fish, but is also small and (usually) overpopulated with twinks. The shoreline south of Booty Bay is also another viable area, just be sure to watch out for mobs patroling the beach. If you do happen to aggro one swim out to sea to break aggro.

School of Tastyfish Node

So we know how, when, and where to fish, but what are we trying to catch? Rare fish of course! You?ll need to cast out into Speckled Tastyfish nodes which appear when the tournament starts and despawn when it ends. Odds are you?ll catch alot of [Speckled Tastyfish], but your real goal here is [Keefer’s Angelfish] and [Brownell’s Blue Striped Racer]. When and if you catch one of these fish you?ll need to head into Booty Bay and turn it in at the NPCs in front of the Inn. Turning in a [Keefer’s Angelfish] rewards a [Lucky Fishing Hat] and a [Brownell’s Blue Striped Racer] results in [Nat Pagle’s Extreme Anglin’ Boots].
