    As far as I know, you will be unable to enter a warfront while being mentored/ or mentoring.

    They have said they won't, and tbh it would be a lot worse.

    If lvl 50 players mentored down, to play in lower level warfronts, you'd have raid gear players with PA to contend with.

    And no there won't be a demand for it. Because once twinking is removed, lower level warfronts will almost cease to exist. If they do exist, they will do nothing at all to prepare you for the incredible gear disparity and rank grinding, all 50 ranks of it (loool have fun with that) at 50.

    One thing I noticed in the PTR notes.

    They mention a new top end set of gear, but they make no mention of removing the current bottom end set. Soooo, as far as I can tell, we're now expected to grind out 50 ranks and an additional set of gear if we want to rank up an alt.

    Woohoo! Sounds like fun.

    Oh, and so much for "New PvP gear before 1.9".

    Ah, but they will provide you with oodles and oodles of free experience.

    New patch notes on PTS basically bent over twinks and spanked them pretty hard.

    1.9 = death of twinks. I guess enjoy it while it lasts =).

    Meh, knowing it's no longer an option, I've opted to try and get caught up on coin/consumables/whatever for Conquest.

    Yes! A victory for lazy players everywhere.

    Too bad level 50 warfronts will be where it's at now..

    Glad Trion is catering to the warfront botters now.

    More favor for us, then. The keyboard turning, hotbar clicking, gear slot missing, PvE specced carebears are going to have a rough time when they first queue up for 50 WFs. And they won't get to lock at 49 to save up for the armor set. Thank god I did that while XP Locking was still in effect.

    You know it's getting pretty bad when world first guilds are leaving. It's apparently not just the pvp that is lacking.

    The XP lock removal isn't as bad as I thought, that means we are going to see a huge flood of noobs coming out of the twink brackets (the qq brackets) and then be killed and pwned and roflstomped in 50 pvp even more so when they were versing twinks...so we are going to have more easy kills. arrrrrr well I guess they will learn the hard way

    I read in one post, I'm assuming it was in PTS, that the new starter set will be the old school rank 6 set.
    So... lvl 50 starter stats will be going way up... rank 50 will be a minimal increase to rank 40.

    I guess that's good in a way, but players will still complain.
