    Can you upgrade Garrosh's heirlooms?

    Is is possible to upgrade the heirloom weapons from Garrosh?

    I expect the answer is probably no, given they are ilv 561 as standard but it's worth asking.

    You can't upgrade them.

    No they basically come upgraded already. I'm sure it has to do with potential issues surrounding upgrading scaling weapons.

    No, but as Daear said, they already come 8 ilvls higher than any other weapon.

    Sadly, this makes then less than desirable when comparing to a warforged.

    my question about them, is will the flex/normal/heroic versions keep their relative power over each other?

    as it stands now, the DPS difference between the flex and heroic versions of the 2h axe is around 1.7k. will that persist when we hit lvl 91?

    Most likely yes, but I don't think there's been anything official about it, else I could not see a point about keeping them HC/Norm/Flex (could have just had them in Norm/HC and always be Norm)

    my only thought about it is that when an expac drops its supposed to be a gear reset within the first 1-2 levels, and if some people have weapos(the most important item) that is going to be significantly better then others then there is no real reset. it could also mean that there heroic ones might be on par/better than the first tier of raid weapons.

    personally i would like to see them all lose the green text and become the same at lvl 91, im 14/14 N right now so i will most likely end up with the normal version if they ever drop.

    Historically heirlooms when scaling have been about the equivalent of a blue item of that level. I don't see that changing for these.

    My wild guess would be that by max level, the ilvl curve will be the same as this xpac (437 quest green, 450 quest blue, 463 heroic blue, 476 LFR/rare heroic epics, 489 raid) (obviously adjusted to whetever value we'd be using by then), and in this curve, the Heroic heirloom ends up either as good as a LFR weap or a heroic blue wep, while the normal one is one tier behind, and the flex one another tier behind.

    Or something similar. No real point even having different versions of the item otherwise, since they're not BiS currently anyway. Nothing as good as a raid weapon though, that'd be a bit stupid.

    Since I don't want to open a thread about a simple question I will post it here instead:


    Are the Garrosh heirlooms personal loot? Can I coin them or chain run Garrosh as long as I have coins? Or are the weapons distributed similarly to the legendary quest items (one chance for the loot per week and no coin will increase the chance to get the item)?

    Garrosh heirlooms are personal loot. When you defeat him, everyone rolls a chance to get one (I assume 15%) and it will just drop into their bags. This is seperate from the standard loot he drops. Also when you coin, you have a chance to get items off his regular loot table but also the heirlooms. I'm not sure if you can get the offspec heirlooms for your coins after you've a received a main spec one.

    Think of them as a long-term investment. They're already competitive with non-Warforged weapons, and they'll eventually outpower the Warforged weapons as you level next expansion (provided you got them on Heroic and not Normal or Flex).

    Personal loot. First weapon will be appropriate for your loot spec, randomly rewarded after.

    Awesome sig by Elyaan is awesome.
