Seska of Ysondre has posed the challenge of twinking to players who hate this style of play. She stated that the joy of playing a twink is in planning how to get gear for the effort. To her twinking proves that gear is more important than skill. To do it right, twinking requires considerable time and effort (not to mention cash from higher level characters), but is a valuable experience. Seska is currently a level 16 Shaman, and plans to keep that character as a twink.

She was met with agreement by some other twinks, but also a lot of resistance and resentment. Some people say that they have tried twinking and gotten bored with it soon afterward, like playing any other video game with cheat codes. This practice can also be frustrating for other players who would like to battleground as they level up but become demoralized by twinks.

I've never considered twinking seriously. I have too much fun leveling and playing in Arenas. The lowered level requirements for mounts may be a bane to some in the 30-39 bracket. My feeling on twinks is about the same as it is on multiboxing. Blizzard says its ok, and if this is how you want to spend your wow time, be my guest.

What's your take on battleground twinking? Would you be willing to give it a shot?
