5.3 and Heirloom Enchants
First, a little bit of background. Currently some heirlooms (those introduced in WotLK) work from level 1-80, while others (those introduced during Cata or MoP) work from level 1-85. To bring the WotLK heirlooms in line with the Cata/MoP ones, they added an "upgrade" option to turn the 1-80 heirlooms into 1-85 versions. Visit your local heirloom dealer, and you can exchange the 1-80 version for the 1-85 version costing various amounts of Justice Points, Honor Points or Darkmoon Prize Tickets. For example [Tattered Dreadmist Robe] + JP = [Bloodstained Dreadmist Robe]. Since you were exchanging one version for another, any enchants on the original versions are lost.
So here we are with 5.3 now live and one of the many changes was this:
Reduced the amount of Justice, Honor, and Darkmoon Faire tickets needed to upgrade heirloom items by 60%.
I think it's well established at this point that Justice Points are essentially worthless in MoP. People will be looking to spend them on SOMETHING and I feel they will be upgrading their heirlooms, especially with the recent drop in cost. All those shiny new heirlooms will need enchants!! Plus, many people have been running MC, BWL and AQ recently for the new pets so vanilla enchanting mats (or gear to DE into mats) are relatively cheap.
Admittedly this is a fairly niche market, but get those heirloom enchants up on the AH!
