I'm guessing what you meant was if a class wears leather all the time, not just until 40, mail won't convert to leather. So sure, if you give that agi mail heirloom to a shaman or hunter, it'll convert to leather, but if you send it to a rogue or druid it'll still be unequippable mail.Another tip: if your honor/jp income at high levels is painfully slow, and you want to make each heirloom purchase count, then consider getting the int cloth shoulders instead of the leather or mail, or the agi leather instead of the mail, for maximum re-use on toons. You don't get armor specialization until level 50.And an odd side note: The few times I've tried it, the game refused to let me enter a battleground on a free-to-play account when I was 19 (without xp turned off).

In my experience, F2P twinking is supported by Blizzard. I made one just to see how well I could do on a free account, and never had any trouble getting into BGs.Fair warning though: it is balls hard, and extremely tedious. Getting 10g together to turn off your XP by vendoring things is a chore, and then you start the process of acquiring the thousands of honor needed to get your heirlooms. That, and the insane frustration of trying to get an Arena Grand Master without 85s to back you up in the ring.Even once you have your gear, you'll still be at a disadvantage because you don't have access to Rumsey Rum, and the item enhancements you'll be able to make with enchanting and leatherworking at the trial account skill cap aren't quite as good as what everybody else has, and to get them I still had to juggle several professions before settling on mining (for stamina) and engineering (for goggles).It can be done, but it's an awful lot of work and in the end the results aren't quite as good as "legit" twinking.
