How to Get Heirlooms in World of Warcraft (WoW)
Heirlooms are nothing short of amazing leveling gear one can find in World of Warcraft, or WoW for short. They bind to your account rather than your characters, meaning each heirloom levels as you do throughout the course of the game. To make them even more special, heirlooms can go so far as to offer players anywhere from 5% to 10% bonus experience for each piece of gear he or she has on.
One may be thinking that heirlooms are solely targeted for level 90 characters and their alts, though this is not entirely the case. It is indeed possible to secure some of these precious items before reaching level 90, and seeing as how they grant the user great benefits, they’ll be glad they didn’t wait.
There are six principal ways to track down heirlooms in WoW. The first is to buy them with gold from guild vendors. The player will be able to acquire shoulder, leg, and cloak heirlooms in this way, though it should be noted that these are at level 85 and require said guild to be of the appropriate level and have the right achievements.
The second way is to buy them using Justice Points, which are rewarded after completing low-level dungeons and raids typically found in expansions like Burning Crusade, Wrath, and Cataclysm. Shoulder, weapon, and trinket heirlooms are all available through this method as level 80 prizes.
One can also buy WoW heirlooms with Darkmoon Prize Tickets which can be acquired via the Darkmoon Faire. The same gear you can acquire with Justice Points is available to purchase with these Tickets.
The fourth way is to buy them using Champion’s Seals, which are rewarded for participating in the Argent Tournament in Northrend. Again, the same heirlooms you can get with Justice Points and Darkmoon Prize Tickets can be acquired here too.
You can also get heirlooms by spending Honor Points, which is another elusive type of currency in-game. Special PvP-stat shoulder, weapon, and trinket gear can be acquired in this way.
Lastly, if you place first or second in the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza, you’ll have the option to pick up the only ring heirloom in the entire game called the Dread Pirate Ring. This feat has you catch 40 fish faster than anyone else in your realm, which is pretty doable should you practice long enough.
And that’s about the gist of all the different ways to get heirlooms in World of Warcraft (WoW). Keep in mind that should one want their heirlooms to become even more powerful in World of Warcraft, he or she should go ahead and enchant them. Be careful not to cause any item you enchant to become soulbound when used.
