Lvl80? Now Im confused with my heimloons

General
Before I started to level an alt I collected JP to make a nice HL set which I can use till lvl 85.
I just dinged lvl 80 and went to MH.

When I look at the gear the quatermaster sells Im kinda confused as all that gear is ilvl 232 and is much better than what I am wearing.

So now I feel like I have farmed JP for nothing to lvl up my heimloon set (was till 80 is now till 85) but the first vendor in lvl 80 sells better.
What did I miss here?

My char is Deliadia on Stormreaver
You didnt miss anything.Starting from 80lvl mobs/quests/vendors will offer you much better gear than your looms.Using looms past 80 is pointless,i dont think that extra 15% or whatever exp is wort huge boost in stats.
Once the item does the jump to level 81 it should be better as far as I can recall, but yeah, the level 80 cutoff point is kind of.. wrong. http://www.wowhead.com/item=61937 wowhead lets you scale the items to see the stats at each level (232 for comparison http://www.wowhead.com/item=72675 )
Nyshae is correct :-)

When you hit level 80, the items you can buy from the vendor are better .. till you ding 81 when the looms suddnely go 'ohhey! new content i better upgrade my stats!"

But yea.. it is kinda broken in that regard :|
Actually you can get even better gear at 80 from the auction house, greens up to 289 or even blues at 409 if you have the spare gold to buy it.

You can get 232 gear at level 77 from the auction house, whenever there is a change of expansion i.e. Wrath of the Lich King to Cataclysm there is a jump in iLevel for gear.

Here are some links for the 409 gear.

Edit: The next big step in gear is at 83.

I just dinged 81 and you are so right. Now all Heirlooms are ilvl272 (from ilvl202) so their is the gap.
Happy I only upgraded form the vendor the non HL items...its not a lot of gold but its still gold :P

I will report this ingame as a hugh bug :P

Yeah I know but tbh it's a waste of gold. The gear changes so quickly that for me it's not worth spending gold. Perhaps I am not that rich like you :P

Tx for the tips anyway! Appreciated!
