I would like this, but... I see the flaw.Grinding gear teaches you how to play your tune in a group setting. Having Uber gear is a crutch that can compensate for easier content. But what happens when that under played toon gets into a group situation that calls for indepth knowledge of their toon (example, a shadow priest who needs to step in for a dead healer in a 10/25 man raid) and they don't have it?I would submit that a better solution would be to have the heirloom gear be equivelant to low end raid gear at 80 and that there be a full 'set' of it available.1.) Low end raid gear on an alt is not over powering. The player in question has already ground out (hopefully) a full set of reasonable gear on their main, this just allows them to be more effective in lower end raid/high end 5 man instances at 80, instead of going through the pain of grinding out blues.2.) Current Heirlooms are basically equivalent to blues of the appropriate level, it would only be at 80 that the top would be raised a bit.3.) It would give hard core 5 man dungeoneers something to spend badges on after the first two weeks of the New RanDun tool.Now as for mounts, vanity pets, etc. I don't really have an opinion as they don't impact game play. But a BoA Mount, Epic Mount, Flying Mount would be nice.
