The 2.0 twink is level 50 with full EWH/mod/aug. Just do NOT buy the expansion.

EDIT: Of course there will still be level 29 (or where ever they set the break point) PT/VGs ruining lowbies fun.
EA/BW: Please FIRE all who worked on PVP for incompetence. Thx.
50-Merc 50-Op 50-VG 40-GunS 50-Jug 50-Shadow 40-Sent 40-Sorc
OK, I have given up on EA/BW! Any suggestions for my next game?

Once you hit 41 (assuming your concealment) and get acid blade, stop taking any quests, pve or the daily pvp ones (so you stay in lowbie longer). Buy or make all purple armorings/mods/enchants/barrels for all pieces of your armor (which should be all orange by now). Always get the armor with higher cunning and the mod that has power (you could go with some crit in lowbies, but i prefer power until 50, then i really beginning to min/max stats). Buy 2 cartel crystals. if you are planning on going to 50, get power +41 ones. Always buy the highest 2-hour blue cunning stim you can use and run it all the time. throw in mk-6 augments in each piece of armor and always use power augments.
With the changes to expertise and bolster in 2.0, stacking power may not be the best course, but on live it usually is the best bet to get ~30% crit (which your armorings/mods from cunning should get you close already) and rest power. Expertise cystals may be best in 2.0, not sure on that yet.

If you do plan on going to 50, trade in comms to get max ranked comms, then spend only on medpacks. When you ding 50, you should have max ranked and normal comms to get all your WH gear, and some good EWH gears.

Then pvp exclusively. As you get closer to 50, a true twink has to make a decision. Either you eventually ding 50, or you start leaving WZs right before it ends to not get any experience so you do not level to fast. That is the practice that really gets people (me included) ticked off about twinks, and it is a crappy move but effective for not lvling to 50.. I would advise against this though, as is such a douche move. not taking quests will keep you in pre-50 range long enough..

Personally though, it gets really boring. I did the twink thing once on my OP. Its so overpowered 41-49. At first your all giggling how easy you dominate, then it gets boring, and then after awhile it just feels like an exploit and you'll either park the toon or just go to 50, and realize the OP aint all that great when played that way with that false sense of OP. With my other toons, I actually prefer to just pvp (i still dont take the quests though) and keep my toon severely undergeared and only upgrade my armorings/gear every 7-9 levls, and barrels every 2-4 lvls. It really helps learn how to survive and play better when your gear is so crappy. Then when i hit 50, i min/max to the hilt and realize i am really much better in 50's pvp for having to learn how to kite/survive with crappy gear in the lowbies..

Then prepare to flex your muscle as you terrorize all the lowbies in pre-50 WZs, instantly feeling better about yourself and thinking your a pvp god...

This thread sums up those who need to twink to compete in pvp.

They need a guide to do it.
