I like how the new heroic raids will drop upgraded items of those that drop in normal.
They have different colours too, but the same model.
MMO-champion has the heroic item with a ‘heroic’ label in its tooltip, too. Not sure what happens in-game.
The heroic version is a notable upgrade to the normal item, too, so it’s not just a polish.
