Yup, not really worried about N/H looms for my collection- nice to have, and I'll get as many kills as possible, but I'm focusing on flex.
Mostly because I've got a lot more alts I can run through Flex Garrosh easily in a given week as opposed to N or H, and there's a loot protection for your first loom. So even though my main has only gotten 1 loom in 19 Flex and 6 N kills, I've gotten almost all the ones I need across alts in Flex.
For the op; important to make a distinction. You get a class and spec appropriate heirloom the first time . That does not mean you neccisaily get the one you find useful. All the checks for is " can class use this?" and " does it match class primary stat?" Even if you were in unholy you still had just as much chance for 1 handed str sword as you did 2 handed str axe. There are ele shamans getting the spell book and enhance shammies getting the agi dagger, Prot wars getting 2 handed axe, etc.
Just from what I've seen on streams in nagrand or when you are questing around level 98 you start to replace 4/4 HCWF SoO gear with questing blues. If they keep this in the beta going the first levels with your normal weapon and then swapping later to heirloom might be the best option. Blizzard also said that all heirlooms would have the same stats at level 100 so the hc one might turn out pretty useless unless you are using it at 90 for an alt.
I think I got my first one (bow) from HC Garrosh on 12 kill or so. Then one more few kills after (dagger).
I have 11 kills and 0 Heroic BoAs.Originally Posted by Larynx
A guildmate has 18 kills and just got a staff.
Then we have someone in the guild who has 18 or 19 kills but has 4-5 Heroic BoAs.
It is not a stacking increase that increases the more you kill the boss without getting loot. Its chance. You have a chance on that kill, and that chance has a specific numerical value. You get more chances the more you kill the boss, but that numerical value does not increase. You only have more chances because you are "rolling the dice" again.
Also I did raid testing with someone named Bury in your guild.
I'm at the high end for my guild. In 26 Heroic Kills I've got the 2H Axe, Dagger, Staff, Bow, and 1H Mace. I've also got another 2h Axe from my paladin that he got on his 2nd heroic kill.
I don't believe I have any normal heirlooms, though.
I know that someone in our guild just got their 2nd heirloom last week at kill 27 for them.
