World of Warcraft CLASSIC / Vanilla ROGUE Level 19 Twink GEAR.

Best in slot: Lucky Fishing Hat
The only way to get one is to complete Rare Fish - Keefer's Angelfish by getting this rare fish spawn in the Stranglethorn Extravaganza, which runs only once every Sunday on your server. So good luck, I hope you have the patience of a saint.

Alternative: Green Tinted Goggles
This is much more realistic and is almost as good as the salty old hat. It is a low level engineering item that also looks very swoosh. It requires 150 Engineering skill level to wear, which is an excellent profession to take on any PvP twink (more on this later).

Enchantment: Lesser Arcanum of Constitution (+100 HP)
Acquired by completing this level 55 quest in the Burning Steppes and then mailing it to your twink. Yes, you will have to level up your main 55 to obtain one.
Best in slot: Image Sentinel's Medallion
Best in slot: Image Scout's Medallion
These may be purchased from your faction’s Warsong Gulch vendor (A Illiyana Moonblaze, H Kelm Hargunth). To buy one you will need a few pieces ofImage, 20 Warsong Gulch Mark of Honor and only 65 honour. If you play a lot of WSG, which of course you will, getting these will be a breeze.
Best in slot: Serpent's Shoulders
Drops from Lady Anacondra in Wailing Caverns - a low level dungeon you could easily run with a group at similar level or get boosted through (mind the XP though!). The high armor (60) makes them the most popular choice. They also don't bind so you can buy them off a pal or off the AH.

...or Best in slot: Talbar Mantle
Some argue that the +3 to stam on these shoulders is more beneficial than the 60 armor on SS. Also very popular with level 19 hunters for the extra mana provided by +6 intellect (more multishot!). Getting them does however require you to obtain Glowing Shard from WC and then complete a lengthy and XP-heavy quest chain.
Best in slot: Sentry Cloak
That three agility is amazing but it’s a hard item to get - a rare world spawn (<1% chance to drop). Your best bet is to find an area with high chest respawns (Wetlands is apparently the best) and farm until you get one - it's that or the AH for a steep price.

Alternative: Miner's Cape
Drops from Miner Johnson, a rare elite spawn in The Deadmines (just before Shredder down a path to the left). Get a hunter buddy with Track Humanoids to help speed up the process when resetting to spawn him. Still kind of hard to get this cloak however.

Enchantment: Enchant Cloak - Lesser Agility
Find a profession level 225 Enchanter to apply this for you in the /trade window.
Best in slot: Blackened Defias Armor
Part of the Defias Leather armor set, it is dropped by the last boss of The Deadmines. It has an okay drop rate of 20%, and is therefore easy to obtain for both factions. The huge amount of stamina and armor, and the extra Agility and Strength make this the most popular choice.

...or Best in slot: Image Tunic of Westfall
If you’re Alliance and knocking around Westfall, this is a excellent alternative that you can get as a reward from completing the Defias Brotherhood question chain - which requires you to defeat the last boss of Deadmines anyway! So you can get this guaranteed even if the blackened defias armor doesn’t drop. This has more Agility than BDA - just remember though, a dead Rogue does 0 DPS 😛

Enchantment: Enchant Chest - Major Health or Formula: Enchant Chest - Greater Stats
Find a profession level 275 Enchanter to apply the former or a level 300 Enchanter for the latter. Combat rogues will prefer the former.
Best in slot: Forest Leather Bracers or Wrangler's Wristbands 'of the Monkey'
Both are rare world drops with a <1% drop rate from mobs and chests. You might be able to purchase one on the AH but it will cost you some Image. The Wrangler’s are especially difficult to find because if you’re lucky enough to find one it might not have the +3 Agility stat bonus you want (randomly generated).

Alternative: Cured Leather Bracers
Yes, that's a white vendor item. Really the only other decent pair of leather or cloth bracers is Bristlebark, which is, you guessed it, another super-rare world drop. It may not look all that good but the 35 armor on these bad boys is better than nothing!

Enchantment: Formula: Enchant Bracer - Superior Stamina
Requires a level 300 Enchanter who has had the good fortune of seeing this drop in MC. +90 HP is very welcome on bracers.
Best in slot: Scouting Gloves of the Monkey
These are pretty hard to come by - you're looking for a world drop with the suffix 'of the Monkey' with +4 to Stamina and +4 to Agility. The numbers are randomly generated so not only does this BoE item drop very rarely but it's also very rare you will get the stats you require. BoE so can be bought with heaps of gold as an alternative way of getting them.

Alternative: Gloves of the Fang
Part of the Embrace of the Viper set, these gloves are a rare drop from Druid of the Fang, normal mobs found in Wailing Caverns. This item is also BoE, so can be bought on the AH if you have Image to spare and don’t fancy farming.

Alternative: Deviate Scale Gloves
Find a level 115 leatherworker. The materials to make this, especially Perfect Deviate Scale and Deviate Scale do not drop as frequently as one would like, so expect a high price for these.

Enchantment: Formula: Enchant Gloves - Superior Agility
Level 300 enchanter friend will come in handy for this amazing Agility boost. Expect a big fee for it - the recipe is a rare drop in AQ and is also considered a very valuable enchant for late game Warrior tanks.
Best in slot: Deviate Scale Belt
Can be bought on AH or made by a 115 leatherworker who has completed the WC quest Deviate Eradication and has the recipe as its reward. Like the gloves of the same prefix, the mats are hard to come by - I would suggest that whilst you farm WC for your Hand, Leg and Shoulder slots, bring someone with https://classic.wowhead.com/skill=393 to get a chance at these scales mats as well.

Alternative: Blackened Defias Belt
Drops from Captain Greenskin in The Deadmines quite often, and is also BoE so you can buy it on the AH. The 45 armor is good and strength will contribute towards your AP.
Best in slot: Scouting Trousers of the Monkey
If you can find these badboys out in the wilds with another lucky world drop, and you are able to get them with 5/5 Agil and Stamina, you will have the BiS legs for your twink. Good luck finding the perfect pair - if you're rich you can buy them off AH of course.

Alternative: Leggings of the Fang
A much more sensible option which is yet another WC drop from Lord Cobrahn and therefore much more obtainable. Strength, Agility and Stamina, all great stats for you.

Enchantment: Medium Armor Kit
You can't put anything higher than this because the next level up (thick kit) can only be place on an item of ilvl 25 or higher. Both fang leggings and scouting trousers are below this.
Best in slot: Nat Pagle's Extreme Anglin' Boots
Another reward related to the STV fishing competition. You must complete Rare Fish - Brownell's Blue Striped Racer by catching a particularly rare fish and handing it in. The high armour and stamina make these BiS for most twinks. You might also however want to consider...

Alternative: Feet of the Lynx
Yes, it’s another rare world drop... turn your wallet upside down or win the lottery - these are a real favourite of both Rogues and Hunters due to the massive +8 to agility/+3 to strength which are more beneficial stats for an Ambush twink.

Alternative: Footpads of the Fang
Wailing Caverns comes to the rescue again with these boots, which are dropped by Lord Serpentis. They also have +4 to stamina making them a more defensive option than FotL.

Enchantment: Enchant Boots - Minor Speed or Enchant Boots - Lesser Agility
Run speed is an excellent attribute to have in battlegrounds and world PvP. You'll want to find a profession level 245 Enchanter to do this for you. Alternatively you can always go for a bit more agility, but honestly you will sorely miss the 8% run speed which is of much more benefit.
Best in slot: Image Seal of Wrynn
Best in slot: Image Seal of Sylvanas
These rings with excellent stats are obtained by completing a long quest chain that begins when Edwin VanCleef in The Deadmines drops An Unsent Letter. You will have to recruit some help from level 20+ friends - as it is necessary to enter Stockades/Shadowfang to complete the chain (these dungs will crush you as a lone level 19).
Best in slot: Image Protector's Band
Best in slot: Image Legionnaire's Band
Both are rewards from WSG and may be purchased from your faction’s vendor (A Illiyana Moonblaze, H Kelm Hargunth). Once again they cost a fewImage, 20 Warsong Gulch Mark of Honor and some Honour points - like I mentioned before you will easily obtain these by playing WSG casually.
Best in slot: Image Insignia of the Alliance
Best in slot: Image Insignia of the Horde
These cooldown trinkets are essential in any PvP environment. You get them from your faction's capital city PvP vendor (A Officer Areyn in SI7, Stormwind and H Sergeant Ba'sha outside the Hall of Legends, Orgrimmar. They cost a few thousand honour points each, which sounds like a lot but isn't. You'll also need to be the correct PvP rank to be able to purchase one.
Best in slot: Arena Master and then Arena Grand Master
All you have to do is loot a chest 12 times and then turn in the 12 trinkets to Short John Mithril to get your hands on this excellent trinket. Easy right? Wrong. The chest spawns once every three hours. It’s also in the middle of Gurubashi Arena, in contested Stranglethorn, and is a free-for-all PvP area. This is probably the most coveted twink item in Classic wow and it won’t be easy getting it. You’ll have to do your homework and have a lot of luck.

The inherent dodge is great and the absorb cooldown lasts for 20 seconds and is a lifesaver in a close fight. Remember however that a shaman can always come along and Purge it! It is also not a unique equip item, meaning that if you wanted you could equip this into your second trinket slot as well to really shine, but I think after getting the first one you’ll settle for an alternative trinket in slot 1!

No other class-generic trinkets exist below level 20. In the meantime stick with the basic Arena Master whilst you are still building up for the final blue. Alternatively you could always try Carved Ogre Idol for fun as well 🙂
Best in slot Main hand: Shadowfang
Best in slot Off hand: Assassin's Blade
Both are rare drops inside Shadowfang Keep. They can drop off of any level 21+ monster in the instance. You’ll need some friends to get hold of one of these, or keep trying in pickup groups (bearing in mind hunters and other rogues will want this as badly as you do. Since they are BoE you could buy them off the AH if you’re rich enough.

Alternative Main hand: Image Protector's Sword or Image Legionnaire's Sword
Alternative Off hand: Image Sentinel's Blade or Image Scout's Blade
All four of these weapons are are again WSG rewards and can be bought from your WSG vendor (A Illiyana Moonblaze, H Kelm Hargunth) for Honour points and Warsong Gulch Mark of Honor. For the main-hand, the attack speed is the same as SF but it lacks the cool shadow damage proc and gains +2 to Stamina. For the off-hand, the difference in DPS from Assassin’s Blade is negligible (-0.2) and they have very similar attack speeds. You will likely be using this sword and dagger for a while before you get your hands on SF/AB.

Enchantment: Enchant Weapon - Agility
The +15 agility is considered the best all-rounder due to the damage boost and extra dodge/armor/crit and AP, although it will be expensive because the recipe can only be purchased by those who are revered with Timbermaw Hold. Alternatively you could go for Formula: Enchant Weapon - Crusader or Formula: Enchant Weapon - Fiery Weapon for the procs depending on taste..
Best in slot: Venomstrike
Yes Rogues could equip ranged weapons back in Vanilla :biggrin: Finally you can exact your revenge by denying hunters this blue! Although tbh it's not very good and it's more or less just another slot to enchant with more agility.

Alternatives: Image Outrunner's Bow or Image Outrider's Bow
Finally, some more backup WSG rewards. Once again, they can be bought from your faction's WSG vendor (A Illiyana Moonblaze, H Kelm Hargunth) for Honour points and Warsong Gulch Mark of Honor.

Enchantment: All you can put on a ranged weapon at this stage is a Standard Scope but it's not worth the effort aside from being OCD since you will be using engineering items when at range, not your bow.
