Since returning to WoW I have noticed that Heirlooms have been nerfed to complete turd, to the point where quest items of the same level are actually 1 to 2 items levels higher. The only benefit in actually wearing Heirlooms are the exp bonus otherwise they would be traded in.
I appreciate that prior to the nerf there was a huge contrast between players who had heirlooms and players who did not but I do feel that the nerf has NOT taken into consideration that all players who had heirlooms WORKED for them and EARNED them. Lets not forget that we also have to spend further gold to upgrade them. Don’t get me wrong I ma not completely against the nerf but Heirlooms should NOT be worse than quest level gear it just doesn’t make sense who at Blizzard thought this up.
I honestly think this all boils down to Blizzard being greedy and wanting to frustrate players into buying level boosts as I do not understand why players who have grinded for heirlooms are being punished.
I genuinely hope that Heirlooms are revisited in the near future and potentially re buffed to bring them up just a tad so that they are better than quest gear but I highly doubt this will happen.
