So you've got the gold and a bank alt, but are stuck on how to make him/her look fancy? Here are some  cool ideas for your bank alt twink!

Bank Alts

You may ask what their purpose is. Easy put, many players hate having their auctions scattered across several characters, which is why they use a bank alt. The second reason is Inventory space. The most typical bank alt will be a Level 1 character with access to an own guild bank. Some players like to take their bank alts a level further, either to show off how much gold they make or just for aesthetic pleasure so they spend a ridiculous amount of gold on bank alt equipment.

Note that most of the gear contains rare (0.X%) drops and other expensive items, so expect to spend gold for your bank alt twink.

Slot-by-slot Itemization - Gear

Skipping the following slots:


  • The only item you can equip at Level 1 that looks aesthetically appealing is Mantle of the Fire FestivalMantle of the Fire Festival, but it requires Midsummer to be up.
  • Other shoulder armor looks rubbish on your twink.


  • Even though you can equip certain necks, they do not visually alternate your character (not even with a buff).


  • To make your outfit look classy, you should definitely hide your cloak.


  • We're skipping gloves.


  • You don't want to ruin your sexy robe with a bad looking belt, do you?


  • They are not of importance as they won't be much visible if you're wearing a robe. You can easily keep the ones you start with at Level 1.


  • There's no real reason to add trinkets to make your alt visually appealing, but if you need any, you'd have to level up your Engineering for Gnomish Universal RemoteGnomish Universal Remote.

Now let's move on to the important slots!


If you're more into monocles there are several items to look for






If you're wearing a robe, skip pants.


  • The best ring you can buy is Eternal Black Diamond RingEternal Black Diamond Ring sold by Haris Pilton. It's even a toy, so it's shared across all your characters. It adds a big shiny diamond ring. Costs 5,000 Gold. It also adds a buff to make you more noticeable, saying "Look at the size of that diamond."

Weapon Slot



All pets with an extremely low drop rate or TCG pets will do.

  • Spectral CubSpectral Cub for example.
  • If you're looking for real exclusivity, go buy a Murky pet that was gifted to all who attended BlizzCon 2005 in person. It can be purchased for several thousand dollars. Here's the achievement - MurkyMurky.
  • An alternative would be Mini TyraelMini Tyrael from the Paris Worldwide Invitation 2008 goodie bag.


Here you'll find some sample appearances.

  • Variation 1
    • Top hat, tuxedo armor, cane weapon, without a tabard.
  • Variation 2
    • Ruby Shades, Formal Dangui, wine bottle as weapon & glass as off-hand.
  • Variation 3
    • Black Embersilk Gown, wine bottle as main weapon & off-hand glass.
  • Variation 4
    • Haliscan set + monocle.

Nice guide, but, and zero offense meant, this is kinda meh - I mean, sure, if you want your bank alt to look like every other lvl1 or 5 bank alt out there, this is a good place to start. But honestly - we don't need anymore tuxedo'd diamond tipped cane'd bank alts running around - Just lacks originality. Again, no offense meant - I just think you can get a little more creative.

Feedback is always fantastic to have, whether it is good or bad. Thanks for leaving the comment and I'm sure our writers can look back at it and improve in the future! :)

      A set of titan-themed Antorus trinkets seems to have some pretty spectacular endboss-only secondary procs!
      With 7.3.2 on the PTR there's been a lot of new discoveries, and the trinkets coming with Antorus: The Burning Throne are certainly among the most interesting. They are all titan themed and all have a standard proc and then an additional unique proc. While it's unclear when exactly this "Empowered by the Pantheon" effect occurs, it seems likely it's connected to a particular part of the Argus the Unmaker encounter (as per the Encounter Journal). Since these secondary procs are pretty insane stat wise (at least for now, you never know with PTR numbers) it seems very likely they will only be present during a part of the Argus fight, perhaps acting as a soft nerf over time for guilds, but they could also be present in the rest of the raid, we'll just have to wait and find out.
      But enough fluff, let's take a look at the actual items!
       Aggramar's Conviction
         Aman'Thul's Wisdom
          Eonar's Compassion
        Golganneth's Vitality
        Khaz'goroth's Courage
        Norgannon's Prowess
      So, what do you think about these pretty crazy trinkets and their potential use as tools to make the endboss easier?

      New sound files have been added in Patch 7.3.2 and they are full of heavy spoilers revolving around Illidan and the fate of Azeroth after Argus the Unmaker has been defeated.
      Our friends over at MMO-Champion have uploaded new voicovers for Aggramar, Aman'thul, Eonar the Life-Binder, Illidan, Khadgar, Malfurion and Tyrande that contain major spoilers, proceed with caution!
      From the recently added Dungeon Journal entry of Argus, we learn that the Pantheon will be aiding us in the final battle against Argus. Eonar provides Gift of the Lifebinder, allowing players to resurrect during the encounter. Other perks in the encounter are  Gift of the Sea or Gift of the Sky.
      Aman'thul VO
      Aggramar VO
      Eonar VO
      Illidan VO
      Illidan asks you to put some final matters to rest and deliver Alor'idal Crystal on his behalf. It holds messages for his brother Malfurion, Tyrande and you. After that you're supposed to place it atop Mount Hyjal upon the shores of the Well of Eternity. If you don't know what happens to Illidan after Argus is defeated, you can find more information here. Illidan, Malfurion and Tyrande received young models in Patch 7.3.2 that may be part of a flashback.
      Malfurion VO
      Tyrande VO
      Khadgar VO
      Now comes the real deal. Khadgar's new sound files reveal what's going on with Azeroth.
      "The Legion is defeated, its master imprisoned, but in his final spiteful act, Sargeras may have doomed us all. Our world is wounded champion. Its life essence seeps out into the sands just as Magni foresaw. This mere drop of Argus' blood surges with incredible power, the might of a titan. If the blood of Azeroth also proves to be a source of such strength, those who seek to rule this world will stop at nothing to possess it. The days ahead may be dark indeed. For now, go to Silithus. Gaze upon the wound in the world with your own eyes. We will find a way to save Azeroth, I know it."
      Remember Il'gynoth's quote "The king of diamonds has been made a pawn?" It all started with the Whispers of a Frightened World scenario.  From the transcript it is obvious that the final titan is wounded. There's a new map with a giant wound (hole) in Silithus. 
      Silithus Wound
      Below is a map of the Silithus Wound scenario.

      Public Test Realms have been updated with Patch 7.3.2. The patch contains adjustments in preparation for the release of Antorus the Burning Throne raid.
      The development notes are really short. There's no new content or features and Blizzard doesn't plan to post further development notes for future builds.
      It's needless to say that there's a lot going on! Primal Sargerite can now be exchanged for various goods, Argus the Unmaker now has a Dungeon Journal entry, Legendary items can be upgraded to 1,000.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’ve updated the 7.3 PTR with a new patch, labeled as 7.3.2. This patch is very minor, focused around updating a few of our backend systems as well as making some final adjustments in preparation for the release of the Antorus raid zone. There’s no new content or features in this update, and any other changes will be extremely light (in most cases limited to simply correcting tooltips to reflect hotfixes that are already live).

      As such, we’re not planning to post regular development notes with future builds, but will post updates regarding raid testing as that process continues. Thanks, and happy testing!

      Awoken Titan Essence allows upgrading of Legendary items to item level 1,000 when Antorus opens.
      In July, we spotted Legendary items of item level 1,000. Players have been reporting the bug on live realms, but in Patch 7.3.2 a new item appeared that can upgrade Legendary items to Legion's max cap - ilvl 1,000.
      The upgrade process is similar to how Legendaries have been upgraded throughout Legion (in Patch 7.2.5 with Stabilized Titan Essence, or Distilled Titan Essence in Patch 7.1.5).
      In Patch 7.3.2, you'll need to collect 50 essences to receive Awoken Titan Essence and upgrade a single Legendary item to item level 1,000. Essences will likely drop in Antorus, the weekly Order Hall cache, emissary chests or Mythic Keystone caches. Crafted items should be of item level 1,000 by default when Antorus the Burning Throne opens.

      Similar to the Blood of Sargeras vendor in Dalaran, a new vendor has been added to the Vindicaar in Patch 7.3.2. He offers various items in exchange for Primal Sargerite.
      Maras can be found aboard the Vindicaar on Argus. For 1 Primal Sargerite, you can get one of the following:
      10x Astral Glory 10x Empyrium 10x Fiendish Leather 10x Lightweave Cloth Uncut Argus epic gems cost 10 Primal Sargerite each.
