Locket is on her way to be my twink. She’s my first twink.. and I started last night at level 4 and dinged 5 while exploring the Barrens down to Wailing Caverns. She then hearthed and started on her tradeskills.
She easily fished up to 50 and cooked up to 30. I suppose I’ll pick up first aid. It seems silly not to.
For her first primary tradeskill she took Engineering. There are nice twink head googles within her reach. With the help of an in-family miner supplying copper and rough stone she got to 70. Additional tradeskill leveling will need to wait until she gets level 10.
Fishing was the next obvious twink choice for the “really good” head gear. I’ve never actually participated in a STV fishing competition.. so I’m taking up engineering as an “easy” backup.
I picked up cooking for no other reason except that it seemed silly to fish up cookable fish.. and not cook them. I’ll need to locate the recipes though 😛
Engineering was the obvious twink choice for primary tradeskill. Mostly for the head gear but bombs and exploding sheep are just happy by-products.
I’m puzzled as to what to choose for my second primary tradeskill.
Inscription has some nice Scribe-only off-hands. I’ll need to compare those to the suggested off-hands. Also it looks like even a tiny little Scribe can do minor glyph research. So there’s a potential money maker.
I’m tempted to take up Herbalism for my second profession. Since the level limit was lifted on gathering professions, it seems to me that I could level herbalism all the way up and get access to a nice sized LifeBlood for a nice heal every 3 minutes. Then again.. lifeblood may be level based. Need to investigate that. I’m also worried that in leveling herbalism I might get too much discovery XP.
Skinning offers the additional crit chance. I think this suffes the same problems as Herbalism. I’m not sure if the crit chance is level limited.. and I’m worried about getting too much discovery XP in levelling my skinning.
Mining has a stamina boost. Same thing.
A quick stop at the AH and she acquired: [item]Pagan Mantle[/item], [item]Bright Belt[/item], [item]Bright Bracers[/item], [item]Pagan Mitts[/item], [item]Bronze Band of Force[/item], and an [item]Antipodean Rod[/item].
Also, an in-house jeweler made her a [item]Thick Bronze Necklace[/item].
Unfortunately she can’t wear any of this stuff yet. So she ended the night by dinging 6 while killing kobolds and more defias in the starter zone.
All-in-all, I think it’s going well.
