    Why did they remove heirloom vendor? What the hell is going on?

    It doesn't really matter for me since I already bought most of the heirlooms for JP but I really don't understand why did they remove heirloom vendor?

    If I recall correctly, they've said that all of the heirlooms will be purchased by gold (since JP is removed) so what happened to that?

    If you didn't buy heirlooms for JP then you're literally screwed right now.

    They said literally like the next day that they were just going to remove the vendors instead.

    They didn't want people getting used to buying Heirlooms with gold only for the method of obtaining them to change again in an upcoming patch when they introduce their new Heirloom system.

    They are planning an heirloom revamp later in the expansion and they don't want people to complain about "wasting" their gold on heirlooms after the new system is implemented.

    But no, you're not screwed. You can still buy them from the Darkmoon Faire and Argent Tournament, and guild heirlooms can still be bought for gold.

    That's a silly explination. Lol Argent tourney.

    Anyway, it depends how long till it comes back.. because if it's anything after 6.0.3 then it's a blantant removal problem. "buy our 90s" especially because leveling is actually challenging again (not complaining about that)

    It is supposed to be a reward for either getting to end game, getting tickets at the darkmoon or being in a guild that achieved the heirlooms that you could buy, not for buying it all in gold at any level. Since JP is gone there will be another way to achieve them later, you just have to wait a month. Of all the heirlooms only the most recent heirlooms were removed, which includes offhands and a healing shield. All the rest you can get at the darkmoon faire.

    Basically what Deadman said. Gold allowed people to buy them as a fresh level 1, never before played if someone handed them the gold. That's not the intention of heirlooms, PLUS they have a new system lined up. They made the call to remove them 2 weeks+ prior to the patch.

    While the JP heirloom vendor is temporarily gone, they are still accessible through Argent Tournament, Darkmoon Faire and honor

    They also said the newer heirlooms (off-hand/shields) were moved to a diff vendor, dont remember which one, because it was plausible that these hadnt been available long enough to be reasonably acquired.

    Removing ways of leveling faster before a new expansion which is the peak time when people want to level new characters.

    And then they nerf how long it takes to get from 85-90.

    Seems counter intuitive.

    they could have just added a level requirement to the vendor wtf... like every honor, JP, valor, reputation vendors in the game...

    And yet without them, I've noticed people are being destroyed in the 1-85 level range in dungeons. :S

    But just wait a bit OP. If you really need/want heirlooms, there are other methods mentioned above.

    Removing the loom vendor affects bugger all people, not that many are still leveling 1-80/85 and most people already have looms. And current looms don't work 85-90 so the two are totally disconnected anyway.

    It's just a side effect of removing JP. They'll be back. Relax.
