Heirloom is an item type that is new with Wrath of the Lich King.[1] The items have a golden hue in their text color and scale with level.[2] Nearly all heirloom items are named after popular items from the early days of Classic WoW, and share the look of these items.

Once purchased, heirlooms bind to account, as opposed to an individual character.

They can then be mailed to any character that shares the same account, server, and faction. Heirlooms are useful as they automatically take on the attributes of a blue quality item of the level of its wearer. At level 80, heirlooms are approximately equivalent to an item level 187 rare item, and will ultimately be replaced by questing, instancing, and PvP at level 80.

Heirloom items can also be returned for a refund within the normal two-hour grace period, but only on the original character that purchased them and only if these items were not mailed to a different character yet.

Mail and Plate Heirlooms bought will lower one level of armor type (to Leather and Mail respectively) for characters below Level 40. For instance, when purchasing an Heirloom for a Shaman, you want to be buying a Mail item, as it will scale down to Leather on your Shaman, until you reach Level 40, when it will become Mail again.

Heirloom shoulders bestow upon the wearer the blessing of the original wearer, and therefore allow greater experience gains while wearing them. The experience bonus from the shoulder pieces stacks with the rested bonus and includes quest experience [3], but does not stack with Essence of Wintergrasp.

Another advantage of heirlooms is their lack of a durability stat, and therefore lack of need to repair. This saves money when leveling your character.

Shoulders

The heirloom shoulders were originally sold only in Wintergrasp or Dalaran; in Patch 3.2.0, the shoulders sold in Dalaran are also purchasable from Evniki Kapsalis at the Argent Tournament Grounds in Icecrown for Champion's Seals.

Chestpieces

Heirloom chest pieces were released in Patch 3.2.0. Like the shoulders, they have a 10% experience boost from quests and kills, and this boost stacks with the 10% from the shoulders (thus making leveling for the lower-levels much easier)[4].

These can be purchased from Dame Evniki Kapsalis once the title <Crusader> has been earned, at the Argent Tournament Grounds in Icecrown costing 60 Ability paladin artofwar [Champion's Seal], or from Enchanter Erodin (Horde) / Enchanter Isian (Alliance) in Dalaran costing 40 Spell holy proclaimchampion [Emblem of Heroism].

Enchanting your Heirlooms

Heirlooms can be enchanted only with enhancements that will not bind the item to the character. The items are treated as item level 1, and as such can not use most Burning Crusade or higher enhancements, including Death Knight runes. Also worth considering is the fact that some of the enhancements that can be used will not actually take effect unless the character using them is of the appropriate level.

For the sake of space, only the most useful enchantments are included. (Note: You are able to place Zandalar Signets on Heirloom Items if you have the rep though they require lvl 55 to become active.)
