Heirloom system Guide 6.1 – All you need to know


On 6.1 you have a new collection tab, just like pets, toys and mounts.

Don’t forget that you should login to all your characters with heirlooms to update your new heirloom tab

How it works

When you select a heirloom from the collection tab:

  • The heirloom will spawn in your bag.
  • You can always recreate them (so if you need 2 of the same, it is possible)
  • No enchants/gems will be attached, but you can still enchant and gem them
  • If you have enchanted/gemmed heirlooms you can send it in mail to your other character.

How does the Heirloom upgrades work

Heirlooms has three types of upgrade levels.

  • No upgrade à Scales to lvl 60
  • 1 upgrade à Scales to lvl 90
  • 2 upgrades à Scales to lvl 100.

Upgrading one item will upgrade all of that same item. Meaning if you upgrade a staff in your bag will upgrade the staff in your Heirloom tab and anywhere else you may have it.

Heirlooms from Garrosh will always only be between lvl 90-100.

How do you upgrade your Heirlooms?

Your Fractions primary Heirloom vendor sells special upgrade items, one type for armor and one type for Weapons.

What types of Heirlooms are new?

  • Neck Heirlooms (new)
  • There are 6 types
  • Instead of xp bonus they award healing % per min
  • Ring Heirlooms (announced , not ingame yet)
  • This is announced but not in the Ui yet

If you collect 35 Heirlooms you will earn the achievement Heirloom Hoarder and an awesome mount.
