Latest revision as of 04:46, May 3, 2014

Heirloom is an item type that was introduced in the Wrath-Logo-Small Wrath of the Lich King expansion.[1] These items have a light-yellow or pale golden hue in their text color, and their attributes scale with the character's level.[2] Nearly all heirloom items are named after popular items from the early days of classic World of Warcraft, and share the look of these items.

Sometimes any Bind to Account items are referred to as "heirlooms" even though they are not technically the same (they usually don't scale, unlike true heirlooms).

Bind to Account Edit

Once purchased, heirlooms bind to the account, as opposed to an individual character. This means they can be mailed to any character that shares the same account, and as of Patch 3.3 including those of opposing faction. [3]. Also, heirloom items can be returned for a refund within the normal 45 minute grace period.

Quality equivalent and type transformation Edit

Heirlooms automatically take on the attributes of a blue quality item of the level of its wearer. At the heirloom's level cap, heirlooms are approximately equivalent to an item level 187 rare (lvl80) or 333 rare (lvl85) item, and will ultimately be replaced by questing, instancing, and PvP as the character progresses to maximum level. Heirloom items do not have a durability stat,[4] and do not need to be repaired. This saves money when leveling your character. Heirlooms were given a durability stat in Patch 3.3.5,[5] but this was quickly hotfixed.[citation needed]Mail and plate items scale with characters as they become able to wear them at level 40. For instance, if you buy a mail heirloom armor item, it will scale down to leather when equipped on a level 12 shaman and then scale back to mail again when the shaman reaches 40.

Experience bonus Edit

Heirloom armor pieces (not counting trinkets) allow greater experience gains while wearing them. The experience bonuses from the helms, cloaks, shoulders, chestpieces, legs and rings stack with each other and with the rested bonus, and affect experience gains from quests,[6] but do not stack with Essence of Wintergrasp.

The experience bonus benefits of the heirloom shoulders, chestpieces and ring only apply up to level 80 unless upgraded to the level 85 version. The helm, legs and cloak will continue to provide their experience benefits through level 85. With helm, shoulders, chest, cloak, and ring equipped, a character of level 1-80 would provide a character 40% increased experience from quests and kills, falling off to 15% from 81-85.

No class restrictions Edit

Heirloom item restrictions are skill based and not class based. For instance, any class could wear the cloth shoulders and chest for the 20% experience boost, but classes such as warriors and rogues would not benefit from the item's casting stats. Additionally, with the introduction of armor specialization in patch 4.0, it is highly advisable to obtain the appropriate Heirloom armor type for the class you plan to level.

Level 85 heirlooms Edit

Cataclysm-Logo-Small This section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.

In the Cataclysm-Logo-Small Cataclysm expansion (Patch 4.0.3), heirlooms were added that scale up to level 85 rare equivalents (helms, cloaks, legs, and rings). In Patch 4.1, a few more were added (helm, cloak, legs, and ring). In Patch 5.2, the option to upgrade your heirloom to scale to 85 was added. They require you have the previous version of the heirloom and a small Justice Points or Honor fee is needed to upgrade an heirloom. The Argent Tournament Grounds's vendor below does not sell any heirlooms that scale to level 85.

Easier to get in Patch 5.3 Edit

In Patch 5.3, the amount of Justice Pvecurrency-justice, Honor Pvpcurrency-honor-both, and Darkmoon Faire tickets Inv misc ticket darkmoon 01 needed to upgrade Heirloom items will be reduced by 60%.[7]

Shoulders Edit

The heirloom shoulders were originally sold only in Wintergrasp or Dalaran. In Patch 3.2.0, the level 80 shoulders sold in Dalaran are also purchasable from Dame Evniki Kapsalis at the Argent Tournament Grounds in Icecrown for ­ Ability paladin artofwar Champion's Seals once the title <Crusader> has been earned.[8]. Both PVP and PVE shoulders give 10% XP bonus for killing monsters and completing quests.

Chestpieces Edit

Heirloom chestpieces were released in Patch 3.2.0. They have a 10% experience boost from quests and kills, and this boost stacks with the 10% from the shoulders (thus making leveling for the lower-levels much easier)[9].

Rings Edit

The [Dread Pirate Ring] was added in Patch 3.3.0 and grants players an additional 5% XP bonus (stackable with bonuses from other heirloom armor pieces) for quests and kills.

Unlike the other heirlooms, the ring is only available by completing the quest Neutral 15 [80] Kalu'ak Fishing Derby.

This makes it the most difficult of all heirloom pieces to obtain since only one person can win the Kalu'ak Fishing Derby, and thereby turn in the quest, each week.

The ring offers Stamina, Hit Rating and Critical strike rating, making it universally desirable for all classes and talent specs. This is especially true for tanks and dps at the lower (pre-60) levels, where hit is extremely difficult to come by. With several of the changes made to healing talent trees and ability interactions builds, the hit is no longer a completely wasted stat.

Weapons, accessories, misc. Edit

Like the shoulders, many of these weapons and other heirlooms were originally sold either in Dalaran or in Wintergrasp. Some were added as available only at the Argent Tournament, but currently both the Dalaran and Argent Tournament vendors offer the same selection of items.

The plan was to add some in Patch 5.2, but some scaling bugs prevented them from getting into the release.[11] As of Patch 4.1, there were no Heirloom quality shields, but Blizzard was thinking about it and planned to add some in the future.[12]

Head and Shoulder enchants Edit

The head enchants available at revered with certain factions, and the shoulder enchants available at exalted with the Sons of Hodir, are also heirloom-quality items, but are only useable by level 80 characters. This is to allow for the use of these powerful enchants without having to grind through the reputations (particularly Sons of Hodir) with another character.

The enchants became Bind to Account in Patch 3.3.0. Note that these Heirloom items are the only the highest level version of the item the faction vendor carries. For example, [Lesser Inscription of the Axe] is not an Heirloom and the name will not appear in a brown color in the vendor's trade window. Even though you are able to purchase and enchant both Head and Shoulder Heriloom enchants, they WILL NOT activate until level 80, essentually making them useless.

You need at least the Wrath-Logo-Small Wrath of the Lich King expansion to acquire these enchants.

HEAD ENCHANTS ARE NO LONGER IN THE GAME.  As of patch 5.0.4.  They are grey quality items that can no longer be used.

Enchanting your Heirlooms Edit

Heirlooms can be enchanted only with enhancements that will not bind the item to the character. The items are treated as item level 1, and so most Burning Crusade or higher enhancements cannot be applied to them. Death Knight runes became applicable to heirlooms in 4.0.1. Enhancements that require a base character level to use, such as Zandalar Signets, will become active only when the character has reached that required level.

The shoulder enchants from the Inscription profession work on Heirlooms shoulders at any level as long as the character has Inscription as one of his professions. Thus the minimum level required to have these shoulder enchants is 65 (for a skill of 400). The PvP shoulder enchant will work only after your character reaches level 70.

It is not possible to enchant the heirloom ring due to the level restrictions of all ring enchantments.

For the sake of space, only the most useful enchantments are included in the list below.

Enchant Slot
[Enchant Weapon - Crusader] Melee Weapon
[Enchant Weapon - Lifestealing] Melee Weapon
[Enchant Weapon - Fiery Weapon] Melee Weapon
[Enchant Weapon - Icy Chill] Melee Weapon

How to Obtain Heirlooms

Notes Edit

HeirloomsUI

Heirlooms tab interface

  • As of patch 5.4.2 heirlooms can now be mailed to characters on another realm. (previously considered unlikely would be mail-able between realms until sometime after the Mists-Logo-Small Mists expansion.[13])
  • With the introduction of Warlords-Logo-Small Warlords of Draenor heirlooms will be stored in tabs, similar to how pets and mounts are stored. This means they will be account-bound and no longer require to mail between characters.

Tips Edit

  • If you like to level alts, go for gear that can be used by multiple classes. For instance, a cloth shoulder piece with stamina and intellect are optimal for cloth-wearing casters like Mages, Priests and Warlocks, but can also be serve a purpose for classes that optimally are equipped with leather, like Druids, and perhaps even, if the XP boost is more highly desired than the armor and attribute bonuses, for a physical damage class such as a Rogue, Paladin, Warrior, Death Knight or Hunter.

  2. ^ Blizz Verimonde 2008-09-11. 75. Re: "Binds to Account" + New Badge Vendors. WotLK Beta forum (US). Archived from the original on 2008-09-14. It's great to see such a positive reaction to the Heirloom items. Let me elaborate on how these work for everyone.
    1) Heirloom items Bind to Account. This means you can mail them between other characters on your account of the same faction.
    2) Heirloom items' stats scale to the level of the person wearing them.
    3) Heirlooms' power is equivalent to a blue item of the characters level.
    4) Heirloom armor pieces will transform based on the type of the gear the character is capable of wearing. That is to say Heirlooms that are Plate on a level 80 character will be mail when equipped by a level 1-39 character who can wear plate. Items that are Mail on a level 80 character, such as Herod's Shoulders, will be equippable by people who can wear Mail armor at level 40.
    We wanted to add something to the game for people interested in trying new classes or who just generally love playing alts, and what's more fun than using an Arcanite Reaper on your level 1 Warrior ;)
    We are intending to expand where we use the "Account Bound" flag over time but for now Heirlooms are the only items that work this way. We also intend to expand the types of ways that Heirlooms can be attained but for now they are only purchasable via   Spell holy proclaimchampion Emblems of Heroism (the new   Badge of justice Badge of Justice) and Stone Keeper's Shards, which are attained by killing any dungeon boss in Northrend while your faction controls Wintergrasp.
    As for enchanting these items, they can only be the recipient of anything that you could put on a level one item.
