Undocumented Enchanting Changes In Patch 4.1

Balancing Twink Battlegrounds

Many of these undocumented changes will be effecting twinks characters and PvP battlegrounds, so if you are a supplier of twink items and enchants, then this is very useful information to know.

This information is taken from this Patch 4.1 Undocumented Changes source over at  These changes have been tested and noted by players on the PTR. is a reliable and trusted source and is a must read for anyone looking to get into twinking of lower level characters.  Hopefully these changes will encourage more players to try out twinking for lower levels.

Changes To Enchanting

Enchants that previously required only an item level of 35 or higher, will now require a character level of 25 also.  So Burning Crusade enchants will no longer be allowed on level 1-24 items.  This makes twinking with items like the Formal Dangui or Haliscon Jacket impossible.  Players used to be able to add the +35 Resilience enchant onto these items.  Imagine an extra 35 resilience in a lvl 10 battleground. Not anymore.

The level 60 enchants from Wrath of the Lich King will now require character level 50 to use.  This prevents level 49 characters from using Wrath enchants.

The Mana per 5 seconds enchants will become +Spirit enchants.

The Health per 5 seconds enchants will become +Stamina enchants.

What does this mean for us?

If you are on a server with high twink activity, you are going to be able to sell some new enchants once Patch 4.1 comes.  Players with twinks that had previously been able to use these Grandfathered enchants will now be looking to replace their enchants with the next best available enchant.

So once Patch 4.1 comes, you should see a slight spike in +4 Stats to Chest (originally said +4 sta, lol - thanks for catching the type) and any other top of the line replacement enchants.
