If you're leveling an alt, heirlooms are definitely the way to go. The added XP bonus and automatic upgrades as you level make heirloom armor and weapons a boon to the alt leveling process. Normally you wouldn't enchant your gear while leveling since it gets replaced very quickly. With heirlooms, you can enchant your gear and be incredibly powerful even at the low levels, making your leveling process a bit quicker. Here's a few recommended enchants and item enhancements you can use to boost the power of heirloom weapons, chest pieces, and cloaks while you level up your next alt.
