Heirlooms in "World of Warcraft" are weapons and armour that scale with your character and provide experience bonuses. Heirlooms are typically purchased by higher level characters when they make a new character . Once you purchase an heirloom, you send the item to your alternate character through the mail. The heirloom is a Bind on Account item, which means you trade the item to each character associated with your account, as long as each character is on the same server.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Earn justice points by completing dungeons. The vast majority of heirlooms require justice points, which you acquire by defeating bosses inside dungeons. You receive bonus points by completing dungeons by using the dungeon finder.

  2. 2

    Visit Larisse Pembraux inside SI:7 in Stormwind, if Alliance. If Horde, visit Zulna in Grommash Hold in Orgrimmar. Make sure you have at least 2,175 justice points, because you need at least that many before to purchase any heirloom. The most expensive heirlooms cost 3,500 justice points.

  3. 3

    Achieve a guild rank of 20 and a guild reputation of honoured to purchase both a head piece heirloom and cloak heirloom. The head piece heirloom requires a guild rank of 20, while the cloak heirloom requires a guild rank of 10. Both cost over 1,000 gold. The guild vendor sells both heirloom pieces and is located in all major cities.

  4. 4

    Send the heirlooms to your desired character once you purchase them. Items sent to characters on the same account arrive instantly, so you can immediately equip the heirlooms on your alternate character.

Tips and warnings

  • You can also purchase PvP heirlooms by purchasing the heirlooms with honour points. PvP heirloom vendors are located with the other PvP vendors in both Stormwind and Orgrimmar.
  • All heirlooms except the head piece and cloak will award experience and scale through level 80 only. After level 80, only the head piece and cloak will continue to scale with your character's level.
