Cross Realm Heirlooms still planned?

(Locked)

I'm sorry to bring it up again, but it just seems like as the game goes on, the changes that are made make it more likely to have cross server heirlooms finally. First there was CRZ, then a bunch of other cross realm features (Battle.net grouping), now Virtual Realms are coming. As time goes on, I find myself asking "if" rather than "when" now.

Is this ever going to happen? Are there still plans for this ever? As more cross realm features are added to the game it seems to be the possible next step.

I'm mostly just wondering if it is something they still plan to do, or if they have decided they don't want cross server heirlooms. It was only really hinted at and never really confirmed that they planned to do it.

Currently it is possible to send them to alts on the 2 servers that are part of the connected realms at this point. The other option is still to purchase a character transfer.

When more realms "connect" this feature should expand as well.

Afaik the plan is for BoA's to be xferable to any toon you have in a connected realm "bundle". So if you have toon on 3 different servers and they all get connected or bundled together, you could mail those back and forth to any of them.

Someone please correct if wrong...

We've talked a bit more about our plans in recent interviews. We're working on some ideas to get things like tabards and heirlooms out of inventory slots, as well as "toy-like" items, in a way that's similar to pets and mounts. Soooooo, yup!

Heirlooms, Tabards and Toy items on their own pets/mounts interface button would be the best news I've heard in a long time. Please make it happen.

I would say your best bet is wait for the cheap services again like they did awhile back and just transfer a toon then with all of them. Thats what I did anyways. I ended up spending about 23 dollars for 2 name changes and a transfer of 5k gold and all my heirlooms to Aerie Peak for the CTR guild.

I've been holding off on buying tabards because I don't have room to store them all. Yeah, I could but, equip, and sell, but the interface thing would be really nice.

And not trying to hijack the thread or anything, but just wanted to toss this out there: it would be pretty sweet if the toy box were shaped like a hippo (in my mind it's summonable like the guild chest but when you click on it you get your toys instead of the bank).

Wow. This would be so super killer. Being an altaholic that I am, this would make WoWlife so much more efficient.

So could we no longer enchant heirlooms?

Just a note, I have a 6-pack of my favorite adult beverage waiting at home for after work... a nice relaxing Fri night, indeed.

I'm going to use one to toast you, sir. I think you just became the most popular person in the entire Warcraft Universe... right there....
