Do Heirlooms Give XP Bonus 80-81?

I have seen countless blizzard posts state that heirlooms would not give bonus xp past level 79.

However, Athene, the world's best paladin and also the person who got the world first level 85, just released a video where he explained how he leveled to 85 in 5 hours. In that video at 1:05 he states that heirlooms DO give the xp bonus from level 80 to 81.

Is their a way to confirm ?

No. They stop working at 80. Isn't that the same paladin that exploited his way to 80 and 85?

Being the first to 85 does not, and will not ever mean, "best".

He exploited to level 80.

This time he didn't get banned....but he did play around with mob tagging.

You do realize that Athene has completed many feats to prove that he is damn good.

Right before he quit a while back, people were accusing him of being carried to merciless gladiator and that he is actually quite bad.

To prove them wrong, the next week he played countless arena games and became #1 in all THREE brackets that week.

I would say that he has the right to be arrogant.

It might have on the Euro servers and/or when the expansion first launched.

I doubt it still does if it did with all the hotfixes.

And Athene is STILL the "greatest pally in the world" by far.

I think most people, including myself, refer to him (tongue in cheek) as the best paladin in the world since he so famously declared himself the world's best paladin in the second youtube video I linked :)

No, the xp question is open. This isn't a thread about Athene :) Do heirlooms give xp level 80-81? Is their a way to confirm or deny this in-game? Many people have posted that Athene is a good player, so if he said it does....does it make it so?

First off best anything is a massive stretch unless your talking about best exploiter of game mechanics.

The only thing he did was tag mobs then a ton of people killed everything for him. If all those people were in his party or raid group then ya give it to him but when you tag a mob nobody but you or your party or raid are "supposed" to kill them that is why they are grey to everyone else so they dont get exp or loot.

All the people who killed for him ignored the fact that they get no exp or loot which is not how the game is supposed to work and they continued to kill every single mob so ya its a dirty way to get exp and should be an exploit since again its not how the game is supposed to be played.

And no heirlooms give no exp past 80

LOL. He may be, but being the greatest pally in the world is akin to being the greatest frisbee golf player in the world. No one gives a ##%@.
