Advice on Heirlooms
Return to board index
I have a low level Warlock alt and before I made an heirloom purchase for him I wanted to check here whether I was understanding this correctly. If I buy and send to him a
Dignified Headmaster's Charge
from the Darkmoon Faire, will he be able to use it and benefit from it while levelling? Does it scale with his level in the sense that he's unlikely to find anything better on his travels? I wasn't sure what the likelyhood of him finding something that would supercede his heirloom while questing or running dungeons.
With that in mind, are their any other heirlooms that I should be looking to kit him out with or are they generally not worth the money/grind? I have access to guild level 20 items such as
Tattered Dreadmist Mask
so I wondered the same question regarding that item.
Cheers for any advice.
Yes, your Warlock will be able to use the staff and level with it.
Heirlooms and its stats scales with your level and the stats are generally equal to a blue quality item at your current level. So, if you have an heirloom, you don't have to replace that item while leveling until it stops scaling with your level (Helm, cloak and legs heirlooms scales to level 85 and all other heirlooms scales to level 80).
Personally I would try to get my hands on a heirloom cloak, shoulders, and legs as well since that will speed up the leveling process tremendously. :)
Great, thanks for the help.
Having leveled several alts with heirlooms, I would absolutely recommend getting all that you can (helm, pants, cloak from guild...shoulder and chest from JP). The stacking +EXP bonus is great.
I will say this though, you might want to pass on the weapon. Weapon stats for a caster are so minor while leveling, you're just as well replacing one every 5-10 levels with a quest reward. If you're leveling a hunter or melee, then you absolutely want the weapon, but it's not as big of a deal for casters.
I see, cheers for the help. the xp boost looks too good to ignore though I wonder how much of the game I'd miss if I rattled through the levels too quickly. Just a question on what you mentioned about the staff - do you mean that in general dps stats for casters come from other gear, rather than weapons?
One important thing to remember: Heirlooms currently only can be sent around on the
. So the warlock cannot be on another server if you want him to have the staff. There has been talk about making heirlooms available cross-server, but, this talk is almost as old as heirlooms.
Dignified Headmaster's Charge
is actually very good for casters, as it has Spellpower, which is rare on items below Level 60.
And no, caster weapons should provide roughly the same percentual benefit as physical weapons.
