I'm sure that I am not the only poor soul, who has decided to level a new character without heirloom "Bind on Account Weapons", and have ventured into a Battleground at levels 10+. It is insane! I know that PvP should not really matter in the lower levels, but many people actually enjoy it while leveling. Now, people who don't have heirlooms, or don't want to get heirlooms for that matter, get utterly destroyed be these "tricked-out" people in these low level battlegrounds with nearly every slot equipped with a heirloom item. It makes low-level PvP just unenjoyable and frankly, not possible. I have a few solutions to this problem:
1. Make heirlooms not-equip-able in Battlegrounds. Now, while this would take away the overpowered lolumad 1 shotting, it would also take away the desired experiance increase that the heirlooms provide. So this is not the best solution.
2. Nerf heirlooms in general. I feel like this would be the best option. This is because heirlooms are overpowered as is, in both PvP and PvE. Why not make the heirlooms the equivalent to, say, green-level items. This way, they can be used constantly throughout leveling, provide the experience boost, but not be TOO overpowered. Also, people who have "blue-level" items would have slightly better stats due to the fact that their gear is harder to obtain and more rare.
Just some thoughts. What do you guys think, I would love to hear what other players think because to be honest, I'm tired of getting lolfacerolled in lower-level battlegrounds!
