Account Bound Heirlooms in PTR Notes

Blizzard has updated the patch 4.1 PTR notes, and they confirm that many account bound heirlooms will now bind to your account. Here are the details:

  • Many "Account Bound" heirlooms are now labeled as " Account Bound", meaning that they can also be traded or mailed to characters that are on different World of Warcraft accounts under the same account.
  • Mail sent to characters on the same account now arrives instantaneously, as it does for the same World of Warcraft account.
  • Mailing account-bound items to characters of the opposite faction on the same account will now correctly translate faction-specific items to their appropriate equivalent.

The notes also state that Guild Challenges are now available for testing. For more details, check out the official Guild Challenges preview.

That's about a stupid assed thing to add. Why do it that way instead of the way that the majority of the people want? When I first saw my first heirloom and saw the words "bind on account" I was stoked as ****. Yet like many, MANY others, I found myself rather annoyed that it was actually "Bind on Server"
No cross realm mailing though...

You still won't be able to mail to different servers/realms.

The characters on the same account have to be on the same exact realm that you are mailing from.

Lame, I know.
