I”ve decided to make a guide on Leveling Heirlooms since I did not find any quick guides for it. This is my first guide, so please feel free to give some constructive feedback
Heirlooms are items which stats scale with your character”s level, reducing the need to replace gear whose stats are becoming too low for your level.
A new Heirloom system has been introduced in 6.1, adding all your heirlooms to your Collections, where they can be easily accessed without having to mail the heirlooms to other characters. Already earned heirlooms will be added to the collection once you have logged in with the character that has the heirlooms in their bank/bag. Any newly purchased heirlooms will automatically be added to your collection.

To use a heirloom, simply find and click on it in the Heirlooms tab, and it will be placed in your inventory, and then equip it. You can also recreate the same heirloom if you want to dual-wield it, or have two trinkets or rings of the same type.

Strength-Haste – Gear for Melee damage dealers that requires more haste than crit. These pieces were the tanking pieces, but the Parry/Dodge stats were changed in 6.0

 

Strength-Crit  – Gear for Melee damage dealers that requires more crit than haste.
Agility – Gear for Melee+Ranged damage dealers
Intellect – Gear for Spell-caster Damage Dealers and Healers
There are also subcategories for armor types, like Cloth, Leather, Mail and Plate.
There are also subcategories for slots, like Chest, Shoulder, Leggings, Weapons etc

Burning Blossoms (Midsummer Fire Festival)
Tricky Treat (Hallow”s End)
Coin of Ancestry (Lunar Festival)
Mark of Honor (PvP)
Timewarped Badge (Timewalking)
 
Head, Shoulder, Chest, Cloak and Pants pieces cost 500 gold / 50 Darkmoon Prize Tickets / 25 Champion”s Seals
One-handed weapons (except the fist weapons) cost 650 gold / 50 Darkmoon Prize Tickets / 25 Champion”s Seals 
Once you have brought a new heirloom, it”s starting level range will be from level 1 to 60, meaning it will stop to scale up once you have reached level 60. This level cap can be increased twice by upgrading the piece with these tokens. 
Armor (1-90): 

*

Ancient Heirloom Armor Casing costs 100 gold / 100 Darkmoon Prize Tickets / 55 Champion”s Seals / 2000 Honor
Weapon (1-90): 

*

Ancient Heirloom Scabbard costs 1200 gold / 120 Darkmoon Prize Tickets / 65 Champion”s Seals / 2400 Honor
Agility Leather (Rogue, Feral Druid, Windwalker Monk. To a lesser extent Enhancement Shamans and Hunters)
Collecting 35 heirlooms will reward you with a Chauffeured Chopper, which can be used as a mount from level 1.

Awesome idea for a guide. I”ve been in hardcore alt leveling mode lately, so I like it.

Couple suggestions for stuff you can add:

 

– Weapons and Trinket, I”m sure you were probably planning on this and just hadn”t gotten to them yet

– BoA ring from fishing, It”s super rare but something to work towards for people that want the ultimate boa set.

– Also the cost of items would be useful.

I would add a section in bold big font about the heirlooms transforming in armor type once the level tresholds are reached. Quite a few times I”ve seen hunters/enha shamans rocking the leather heirlooms meant for rogues/druids/monks not having known the Mail armor automatically transforms into Leather prior to lvl40.

 

Using the leather ones is still viable ofc if the stats are good, but in many cases I don”t think it has been intentional.

 

Other than that, its nice work.

One of the problems I seem to have noticed is that there are no cloth heirlooms with + hit on them for DPS.

 

Best way to work around that is to have a stack of cheap +hit/expertise enchants for your boots, gloves and wrists because the only heirlooms you can enchant with any +hit are your weapon and your cloak even though you”ll probably want a different enchant on your weapon.

 

Otherwise you will just get spammed with misses 🙁

Pretty good stuff.

 

Enchant tip: Windsong is insanely op. It procs often, and at low levels, gives over 100% crit and haste. Even at mid levels, it gives a huge chunk. By far the best enchant before max level!

The Enchants section needs a rethink. MoP enchants scale terribly between 1-80 compared with TBC, Wrath and Cata enchants. For example, putting Lord Blastington”s Scope of Doom on an heirloom bow or gun is plain silly. It scales as follows:

1-60     sometimes increases Agility by 68 for 10 sec when dealing damage with ranged attacks 61-70   sometimes increases Agility by 90 for 10 sec when dealing damage with ranged attacks 71-80   sometimes increases Agility by 180 for 10 sec when dealing damage with ranged attacks

Compare that with Flintlocke”s Woodchucker

1-60   sometimes increases Agility by 112 for 10 sec when dealing damage with ranged attacks 61-70 sometimes increases Agility by 150 for 10 sec when dealing damage with ranged attacks 71-80 sometimes increases Agility by 300 for 10 sec when dealing damage with ranged attacks

Similarly, putting Glorious Stats on a chest is inefficient:

1-60   +3 all stats 61-70 +4 all stats 71-80 +8 all stats

But using the Powerful Stats enchant from Wrath, you get:

1-60   +4 all stats 61-70 +5 all stats 71-80 +10 all stats

As a rule of thumb, MoP enchants are the most expensive, and the least effective.
