Actually no..I believe in a more pure playstyle. I don't like to completely strip the challenge out of the game because of my insecurities <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

<p>How exactly do you twink in a game where gear and spells are level locked? Where you can only wear what Sony deems level appropriate armour at any step in the game? You can't equip anything before you're the right level, so...? Really, if with even the slightest application of time..doing quests and going through dungeons, anyone can have the best armor and spells at the lower levels, and I do mean ANYONE, how in God's name do people think its even possible to twink? </p><p>Twinking was an eq1 thing..it was giving high level armor that you could only get with a high level character...to low level alts. It was giving an alt gear that was not available to the average lowbie. It was removed from eq2. </p>

arg - yes it was me i have to admit. but we quested there. we killed you once than went on doing our quests and after 30 minutes you have been of recent list and popped back up on track again.... but you wanted to gank that poor lvl 9 exiled before we engaged you the second time ^^ and no at lvl 13 i can´t beat you solo tbh. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> but the climbable wall thing was so dam funny ( hail uborr, hail uborr --> knockback peeeeeewwwww ^^ )

<p>The only people who complain about twinking are the ones that lack the ambition to do it themselves.</p><p>Try working for what you want instead of whining for a change.</p>

How is someone who is just starting the game supposed to have full mastercrafted, all adept 3's, and a top-end mount at level 12? If having an alt ding 12 and immediately receiving that isn't "twinking", I don't know what is. And if that doesn't... consider the level requirements on many things- namely t5 fabled armor. Much of it is wearable at 40 or 42; it's certainly not *obtainable* at that level unless you're merely there as a hanger-on, however- in other words, being twinked by higher level players. Twinking is alive and well in EQ2. I'm not commenting on whether it's good or not, but to claim that it doesn't exist is just disingenuous.

Seriously it takes all of 15 minutes now days to level your alts crafting high enough to make a level 12 some mastercrafted. When we leveled our alts, we each took a craft and made for the others..and within an hour we were all decked out. It's not twinking, it's the way you are supposed to play the game and gain gear, it's called putting forth a tiny bit of effort. The Adept 3's at that level are a SINGLE POINT more damage than the Adept 1's. If you don't plan on staying level 12, it's not really a concern since anyone who's ever made an alt knows you can do levels 12-18 in about three hours.</p><p>The mounts require several thousand status, which is not something you get when you ding level 12. The top end mount could not be acquired by a level 12 unless they locked there for a very long time and pvp'd heavily. </p>
