Part of the issue is things like pets and mounts. I went to Blizzcon08, and got the Big Blizzard Bear. I redeemed it on Silvermoon-A. But although it's BoA, I can't have it on my hordies or Allies on other servers. How then, is this item BoA? It's not just a matter of mailing the summoning/learning item to my other characters, it's that I also can't redeem across my account. I wanna show off my Blizzcon pride on my hordies, but no dice.Considering these items are bound to my account, it should be possible for Blizz to make BoA items available across the account, not just on the first server/faction the code is redeemed.

Interestingly, my Battle-bot has shown up on both my Alliance and Horde toons, across multiple servers. Including ones I've made *after* activating the bot. So BoA now can mean something else than what it meant when you got your thing.And this brings up a good resolution to the BoA heirlooms: they should just be mailed out to all toons you have or later make. Either faction. And then trading across servers is not needed.

Amen. I got my Big Blizzard Bear via the DirecTV promotion, and I'm with you on that. I don't play Alliance anymore and have no intention of ever going back to it, but my very first toon is sitting at 80 with the bear in her bank. It would be nice if my Horde toons, the ones I actually play, could get the use of it. Not to mention those heirloom shoulders I got for my spacegoat shaman that have been collecting dust for four months because I'm not playing A-side anymore. I have a lot of lowbie alts that could use those, but because they're Horde, they can't.At the very least, you should be able to send BoA items to your own characters cross-factionally. The system as it is now is broken and stupid.
