Open up your MPQ Editor and Custom Open MPQ
Find patch-enUS-3.MPQ inside your World of Warcraft Data directory and open it
Inside the patch go to Interface/FrameXML/GlobalStrings.lua and extract it anywhere
Right click and edit with notepad++ and search for "ITEM_HEROIC", then edit "Heroic" to whatever you want and wala.

What about adding customs?

His made goal was just to edit the existing..

Portals, very nice! I figured it would be in a Lua script file...

Anyone by chance know where other tags like Heroic are done (Season #) Searched through Global and couldn't find them :/

This explains the heroic flag and how to edit it. There are no season flags.

Was meaning if anyone knew were they were done at for cataclysm. As in 4.3.4 all Cataclysm PvP season gear got a tag similar to the heroic one. Was hoping they were done similar as the heroic one just in a different lua.

Also, for any trying to do it on Cata (For 4.3.4 at least) the GlobalStrings is located in locale-en** inside your locale folder. The lines are on about 5,000 and there's a different line for each armor quality.

Okay, well ended up finding the DBC that it's all held in. ItemNameDescription and it's all defined per item with some sort of color code in the last column. Can just add a new line with the entry of your item and GG. Though, not sure how the colors are done..

Enjoy ^^
