To start of with, this was not some completely random idea i had today. This is actually something i have been thinking about for quite some time now.
We all know by now that the current Heirlooms from wotlk will be active and working untill lvl 80, and from what we have heard, new heirlooms will also be implemented in cataclysm, however it is still unceartan how exactly they will be implemented.
When they announced the cataclysm's coming i already got worried. WIll i regret having bought this heirloom in cata? Will i feel like it was a complete waste buying/aquirering all possible heirlooms ingame? And the anwser was yes, i will be regretting it, because if cataclysm comes with new heirlooms that will cover the same slots, then i will be losing out on alot unless i replace all my heirlooms with the new ones. So i started thinking. What about allowing players that already have the wotlk heirlooms to "upgrade" their current heirlooms to the cataclysm heirlooms for a lower cost? Like instead of buying chest for 40 badges, then buying it for 30 or maybe even 25 badges when also turning in the chest piece you had from wotlk? Giving players some credit for having aqquired something in a previous expansion with a discount on something simmilar, yet upgradeed, in a newer expansion will prolly please alot of players. Farming all the heirlooms isnt something you just do in a day or 2, it takes time.
Responses are more than welcome but please keep it sober and with valid argumentation :)
