So weird they decide to make it easier on alts of those that mainly focus on playing one character and out of reach for most altoholics that would benifit from it the most. What altoholic would be doing the exact same boring quests day in day out when they can play an alt?I am all for giving nice or even awesome rewards to those that work for it in endgame, but why make heirlooms part of that? Heirlooms are the holy grail for altoholics, epic gear with great stats would be much more fitting for those that grind at max lvl, or anything not related to leveling for that matter.Ah well, perhaps I am just annoyed because I dislike the tournament junk they added and decided shortly after the introduction that it wasn't for me.This heirloom chest I was hoping they would add is now out of my reach because I play with one important rule in mind: if it ain't fun, I ain't doing it, it's a game after all.

That's a good point; I was much less likely to be doing dailies than leveling alts.BTW, if they had intended the AT to be fun, they would not have it take place on vehicles.

They HAD to add something for the people that went through all of the tournament. Although I usually feel satisfied with small stuff ( like the title ), I don't like it if they made everything in the game so optional, that it would almost be pointless to do.And please don't start with the vehicle hate >.>

Actually I think there's a degree of sense to this. The XP-enhancing Heirlooms aren't really for Altaholics - they're for people who want to play at endgame, and who want to get what alts they *do* have to 80 as fast as possible.Anybody who would rather play an alt than grind for Emblems/Rep/Gold in endgame, almost by definition, does not need tools to get their alts to endgame faster. If they wanted to be playing at 80, they'd be playing their 80.Plus since the XP-enhancing items are all armour, you need multiple sets for all your different alts anyway (unless you're an altaholic whose characters only wear one armour type, which seems unlikely). It's a way to get endgame players to level alts, far more than a way of getting altaholics to endgame.
