There really needs to be a per-account bank that you can put non-soulbound stuff in, and can be accessed from any realm.So:BoA gear: yesnot-yet-bound BoE gear: yes Soulbound gear: noAnd perhaps even gold.Yes, I know BoE and Gold have huge implications for things like cross-realm arbitrage, but I'd expect it will stabilize some of the variations in economies on different realms.Of course, I'd be quite satisfied if it only held BoA gear.

No there doesn't.You could then gear alts on any realm by simply farming on a main and completely removing the need to put in any real effort on any of the others.Heirlooms are already taking away a considerable portion of the levelling process, with guild perks taking an additional share.Lets not try to have even more 85's which are utterly useless because we are giving them yet more opportunities to avoid learning their class.

I recently leveled a toon from 1-85 with incomplete heirlooms in about 3.5 days /played. I am led to believe this is relatively quick. As quick as it may be, it is still about 84 hours spent with that character.I submit to you that if a person can't master the basics of the class's rotation and mechanics after playing for 80-100 hours, making the process somewhat longer by taking away the heirlooms isn't going to magically imbue them with competency.

@Ian"Heirlooms are already taking away a considerable portion of the levelling process"How? Who said you have to equip it? Optional content is optional. Heirlooms = optional. Leveling is going to be easy, especially 1-80 (and 1-85 next expac). Blizzard doesn't want anyone who just spends $110 (perhaps less in the future) to have anywhere remotely close to a difficult/long time to hit the level cap. It makes sense from a certain aspect. Not everyone is at max level. And generally speaking, playing your class while leveling =/= playing your class at max level unless you leveled up mainly in dungeons.
