    I'm happy to see this. I'm glad to be able to mail them ahead of time if I choose to. The playerbase has been desiring this for years and when it's finally here, everyone wants to grab a pitchfork. Ridiculous. This community is disgustingly toxic.
    Blizzard decides to implement a version of a new awesome feature coming in WoD ahead of time, gets accused of waiting to make a profit.

    Well I definitely saw this thread coming. No sarcasm there.

    Upgrade to WoD, which all new copies will have a free character boost to 90.

    Transfer character from this new WoW account to your main WoW account.

    I'm sure the implementation of Connected Realms and the fundemental changes to the way Realms are networked had nothing to do with them overcoming the hardware limitation of not being able to connect Realms.

    How are heirlooms a source of income? You buy them for justice/honour points?

    That would be incredibly expensive for a single character. $20 for the Battle Chest, $40 for MoP (unless the price gets cut), $40 for WoD, $25 for a transfer. Even if you got the $5 Battle Chest deal and MoP's price gets cut in half, that's still $90 for a single level 90.

    They're talking about $25 server transfers to get the heirlooms from one realm to another.

    I just don't get it; so many people have these "Theories" about Blizzard. They are a company, their number one goal is to make a profit, if it's no longer as profitable they might be doing it for free now. If you didn't like it, then don't use it. I haven't enjoyed WoW, I don't pay for it. I will when WoD come out... it's almost like I have a choice where I spend my money or something.

    Heirlooms. Items which are bound to your account (and current server).

    That is because on the official forums your post will get "missplaced" if it is too far from the company line.





    There is no bad RNG only bad L2P

    And they were looking at adding in Heirloom tab with mounts and pets but they couldn't work it out in time. Not to pick on you specifically but do you people think they just snap their fingers and things happen? Or that they should drop everything to work on a single problem?
    Account Bound or Account+Server Bound... I remember the latter.

    No, but I think it's ridiculous for them to consider adding things like Battle pets of all things, when there are problems that people have been asking about for two expansions. Basically, they could have put their limited resources in better places.

    That's strange because I've seen plenty of very critical threads on the official forums. They're usually fairly constructive though, or at least not rage posts.

    If you're willing to pay 40 bucks multiple times just to save 2 days of leveling, you're asking for it. No sympathies here.

    Honestly, I think they could have done it for a LONG time, but it just has been too good source of income to them.

    "In the latest 5.4.2 PTR build, we are testing the new ability to mail account-bound items to other characters on your account that may be on different servers. Notably, this should allow you to move heirlooms between servers, in advance of our planned Warlords changes that will make them fully account-wide.

    Sending this sort of mail should work like any cross-server communication: You send the item to "Playername-Servername" and it should otherwise work like regular mail. Note that you can only send account-bound items, and not other items or gold.

    Example: I have a character, Thrall, on the Benedictus server. I want to send my heirloom mace to my alt, Durotan, on the Lycanthoth server. I'd log in as Thrall, and attach the mace to a mail addressed to "Durotan-Lycanthoth" and hit send."
    Given that X-Realm mail already exists thanks to connected realms, I would imagine that implementing this was pretty much a matter of locking it down to your own account.

    It must be depressing to have such an ass-backwards thought process.

    "My parents finally got me that pony I wanted for Christmas... wait a second, I bet they're planning to kill me and are using the pony to distract me from their malicious intentions!! WTF!!!!"

    I mean, do you honestly NOT realize how whiny and convoluted your post sounds?

    I don't see your point to be honest. Why implement it at all, if transfer money was the reason behind not making it happen?
