Heirloom is an item that is new with Wrath of the Lich King.[1] The items have a golden hue in their text color[citation needed] and will scale with level.[2]

For example: at level 1 a weapon may do 6 dps, while at level 80 the same item would do 120 DPS.[3]

The items are listed as item level 1, so they can't be enchanted with high level enchants.[2]

Heirloom appears to have replaced artifact as the highest item quality,Template:Speculation-inline since no artifact quality items are available in-game.[4]
