I doubt that they'll just give them to new starting characters, just due to the sheer quantity of heirlooms that you can get now. (Don't forget, there's likely a new tier of heirlooms in the next expansion as well.) Inventory space for new characters (remember, no bags to start) is also a consideration.I think a vendor that "sells" everything you've unlocked so far is the most likely solution. They could use that for tabards, too.

Inventory space is a non-issue, actually. The backpack has 16 slots, the most heirlooms a single character can wear is 8 (head, back, shoulders, chest, 2 trinkets and one or two weapons), and they'd presumably all be equipped within short order of having pulled them out of the mail.

@AndrewThe most that a character can EQUIP is 8. You need to multiply that by the number of gear types. It's closer to 26 is the max that would appear in your box. Six slots times 4 armor types plus the two trinkets. Then add on any pets/mounts from Blizz store and collector editions.

@V Magius: If Blizzard can't find a way to filter gear mailed to a toon by what class the toon is and what armor is ideal for it, I'll eat my hat. Not a proverbial hat, the fisherman's cap sitting just over there. It's wool, so it's probably edible.

actually it's 9. You're forgetting the ring :P

@Andrew: But then you run into the problem that everyone else is pointing out with hybrid classes-- you don't pick your spec until level 10, and different specs in those classes need different gear. Would it send your Shammy the spellcaster or the enhancement agility set if you level, say, shamans and hunters repeatedly (like I do)?
