I think it's fine as-is, or maybe one or two more. Otherwise you'd never be using quest rewards which is a major part of the game.

But by the time you're leveling your umpteen alt, the quest rewards feel more like a restriction than a fun experiance/carrot. It's more like "Now i have to make sure i stay in XR, so i can begin the WC quest chain, run to each oasis, kill some turtle, run to TB, so i can get the sword/staff i want" And the whole time you are a zombie because you've done it so many times. But since it's the best way to get what you want, you grind through it again.If you had all heirloom items, then you could explore new areas you've never leveled in before without feeling like you're gimping your leveling.

Hmm, a valid point. I change my opinion then.

You should try it, I'm doing it on my Rogue (Heirloom daggers/bow/chest/shoulder/trinkets) .... it's oddly freeing to just quest for fun and not worry if the quest reward is worth the effort. And now every level is satisfying, not just the even numbers :PIt's like "Ding!" I inspect my gear to see how it's changed and feel complemently satisfied. It's hard to explain, best i can say is it's like watching your Poke'mon evolve.... lol
