    Does killing Garrosh award the heirlooms ?

    Hey guys

    just curious about the heirlooms.

    I read heard about them droping from Garrosh. I think I read a blue post stating that you get one 100% as personal loot when you kill him the first time.

    But I couldnt find any in the armory of the guilds that already killed him.

    So do they drop or dont they ?

    I was under the impression that it wasn't a 100% drop, but that the first one that does is 100% suited to your spec at the time of the kill.

    I was wondering the same thing, are they still a % chance to drop (and the 1st is 100% chance to be for your current loot spec) or is it 100% chance to drop (and 1st is 100% chance to be your current loot spec).

    For our 25 man kill only 1 out of 25 received a heirloom weapon while I heard from a 10 man that half their raid got one.

    Could he upgrade it with VP? GC said yes on twitter, database says it isn't 0/2.

    His armory doesn't show 0/2 or 2/2 but it's 561 iLvl so I assume you can, can't reach him to ask right now.

    It isn't a guaranteed drop, but your first one is guaranteed to be suitable for the specialisation that you're using.

    The looms drop at 561 for normal and 574 for heroic, so their ilvl is equal to regular weapon drops + 2 upgrades, basically 500 free VP. But you can't upgrade them any further.

    Your persistence of vision does not come without great sacrifice. Let go of the tangible mass of your mind, it is only an illusion. There is no escape.. For the soul burns on everlasting encapsulated within infinite time. A thousand year journey at the blink of an eye... Humanity is dust..

    Thats how you would assume it works. Then you refer to this tweet from GC:


    And suddenly, you can't really be sure. So now that we know of people WITH the weapon, and have someone who can ASK that person, I'd prefer to get actual confirmation instead of baseless assumptions.

    He means upgraded because they already come upgraded, and this isn't baseless assumption, this is hard data. Can't get more factual than that.

    That is what you get out of the text. What I get out of it is that they can be upgraded, and they can't be warforged. Not that they are "already upgraded". Nowhere does he state that the extra item levels on them are the upgrade, and we get it "for free" - that is how you have decided to reason with the data we have at hand. It is basicly his "yes, they can be upgraded", versus your "no, they can't".
    And with this, I'm not saying that you are not going to end up being correct (that they cannot be upgraded) - but untill we have actual confirmation from someone who has a heirloom in game (remember how the armory wouldn't even show 5.4 items a day ago?), we don't know for sure.

    We did not get any heirlooms on 10m kill, but he drops 3 pieces of loot which is nice.

    I've been wondering about that too. We're on spoils and still have 2 raid nights left. So I think we'll prob get it this week. It's be nice to get that sword.

    I'd prefer my orcs to stand up straight.

    We got 2 in our 10man kill. Can't be upgraded. (guardian got pole and lock got staff).


    What is really awesome though, is the fact that he drops an essence of X giving one (I'm guessing 3 in 25man) lucky person/people a tier piece of their choice.

    I believe in our 25man kill I got the only essence that dropped.

    Playing Mage as main. My Lock is my 1st alt. How do I ensure that I get a shot at getting a 2nd Staff? Not too keen on sending BoA over every time I relog...

    Default as I understand it:
    1. 1st roll: Get a shot at staff for Mage
    2. 2nd-xth roll: Get a shot at other Weapons
    Is it safe to presume that I will NOT get a 2nd staff???

    To achieve second staff:
    1. 1st roll: Get a shot at staff for Mage
    2. Mail BoA to Lock for the Garosh kill
    3. 2nd roll: Get a 2nd shot at staff for Mage
    Will it drop the staff since I don't have it inventory, or will it keep track that I did already gòt it and NEVER drop another one again?
