Remember twinks? Btw WoD should fix scaling.People in this thread are missing the point. Low level pvp is isn't terrible because of gear or boa's. It's awful because the way each classes abilities scale as they level and the way the talent system works. When they took out all of the skill ranks for each skill in cataclysm and added the whole "pick your spec" option at level 10, this basically fucked up the overall balance number wise. Cataclysm and on we literally receive passive bonuses that normally your spec wouldn't receive until level 50ish.
This is why you have stupid shit like Ret Paladins being able to heal to full with one word of glory at level 30. This is why you have stupid shit like Warrior shield slam, Warrior revenge one shotting people. You can make a long list of broken retarded abilities some classes have at low levels. And the reason they're broken is because there's no skill ranks and every passive talent you needed to work your way to get prior to cataclysm is given to you very early.
I'm not going to sit here and act like pre cataclysm low level pvp was balanced either. It wasn't. But it was a lot better than the shit we have now.
