You know what, I'm kinda sick of heirlooms. It's just getting silly now. I've got the Heirloom ring, so with the current shoulders and chests and these new helms and cloaks, I get what, a 40% boost to the XP I earn? Do I even want that anymore? With all the major improvements to the Old World questing, and the changes to talents, I feel like leveling is going to be incredibly fun at low levels, rather than a chore I feel the need to burn through as quickly as possible.Add to that that suddenly every single low level warrior or mage all now look nearly identical, and it just feels a little much.The mounts look cool (heck yeah Thunder Lizards and dark phoenices), but I might just give those heirlooms a pass.

the nice thing about heirlooms is it gives us that choice. Rather than Blizz once again buffing XP gains from questing, they simply gave older players access to heirlooms to make leveling alts less painful. Face it, after a couple of toons go through the new 1-60, we'll be ready to start burning through it, again. Plus, hey, 40% faster getting out of Outland and into Northrend.

I was hoping they would make heirlooms necklaces, rings, trinkets and bracers this time - stuff that isn't noticable on you character. No such luck :(Well, atleast a cloak is better than a robe...

@begedinnikolaThere's already an Heirloom Ring & 2 Trinkets, but that's beside your point :P But these new heirlooms are of the 'you can turn them off' variety. Side note: I'd love for Relic Heirlooms. Hunters, Rogues & Warriors get extra heirlooms via ranged weapons. Relics would cover Shamans, DKs, Paladins & Druids. Now that leaves out clothies, but an Heirloom Wand would take care of that.
