One of the more confusing and misunderstood aspects of the Heirloom XP bonus and leveling system that has been going around lately has been their application in PvP Battlegrounds. Some people say that the 20% combined XP increase from the chest and shoulders applies, some say it doesn't. Lots of smart folks provide answers, but until now there really hasn't been an answer on the part of Blizzard -- who has the final and authoritative say on everything.
So let's lay it out real simple for everyone, courtesy of what Zarhym said in a series of posts over the weekend:
- Heirloom items currently do not provide an XP bonus in Battlegrounds.
- Heirloom items should provide an XP bonus in Battlegrounds in Patch 3.2.2.
The confusion of Heirloom's XP powers while in Battlegrounds is likely a result of the newness of the XP gains you can get in Battlegrounds. Eventually all that confusion will go away, and Zarhym's clear statements this weekend certainly helped with that.
