I read a post in the WoW general forum about Heirloom items. This person feels the description on the heirloom item (Bind on Account) is misleading.
Am I the only one who thought that bind on account meant bound to your ACCOUNT?
The troll has a point in some bizarro way. The term “Bind on Account” can be interpreted as to any alt on your account can use the item. There should not be any barrier restricting you to send an heirloom item to another alt in a different server or a different faction.
To someone new to the game or someone that does not read that much news about WoW I can see that happening often, especially with over 11 million subscribers.
With that said, some/most of the player base knows the heirloom items can only be used by an alt of the same faction and reside on the same server. You can’t mail the heirloom item to an alt of the opposite faction or on another server. It’s impossible at this time. Perhaps Blizzard should update the description to read:
Bind on Account Realm Faction.
In short BARF.
