I think the most epic fight I've ever seen would have to have happened on the WotLK Beta. It was nearing the end of the Beta, when 3.0.1 had already come out, and it came to pass that I and a few of the stragglers of my guild decided to run Zul'Gurub, for kicks and giggles.The group was composed of, iirc, a priest, a hunter, a mage, a pally, a DK, and me, a warlock. Everything was going well, we'd had quite a few phat loots drop (if you can consider girly-man 60 belts phat loot), and we came to Hakkar.The fight began as usual, with Hakkar screaming at us and proceeding to attack. All was well up until about 50%... when Hakkar MC'd the death knight.All five of the rest of us dropped in 15 seconds.The Death Knight, however, was specced for self-preservation, and went on to solo Hakkar the Soulflayer from 50% over the course of about 10 minutes.A magnificent battle, and the only one I've ever wished I could record.(EDIT: I want some of whatever the guy below me is on.)
I remember, back in the day of candle stick jumping and shooting marbles down at the candy store to pass the time. Although on this particular day I had stayed in. As I rolled out of bed, a number of dirty socks and ho-ho wrappers fell off me in a large pile, I grunted, and rolled down the stairs to my computer, only bashing my head twice on that day.That day sticks out in my memory because of the electric feeling that pulsed through the air. Or maybe that was the live wire outside my room, oh well. As I reached my computer desk I inhaled deeply, the air reeking of moldy month old wrappers and spitoons. I reached for the power button on my computer, but stopped for a split second, contemplating the consequences of what I was about to do. I knew it was crazy from the second it crossed my mind. The only two words that I could think about were OOZELING and DISGUSTING (2 of my favorite things put together, what could be better?). I began to get a little giddy, hopping around wearing my coveralls and shrieking like a young girl, and this was just at the idea of the disgusting oozeling? I immediately logged into my World of Warcraft account and selected my Tauren Druid from the character selection screen, my palms sweating like the beaches of southern Boliva. My greasy hair hung into my eyes, causing them to become irritated and red, of course I didn't mind, I had bigger fish to fry.In the distance, I could hear my friend and neighbor Derrick screaming my name outside of my house. "JAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYKKKKKKKKKKKKKKEEEEEEEEEEE". I put him on my ignore list and moved on. "WHAT?" I screamed as I logged in and found out I had set my hearthstone to Silithus. The veins in my neck bulged out and the blood in my temples throbbed as though I had just been held up at gun point. I had to face the facts and finally decided to fly to Orgrimmar, one of the longest flights at the time. As I cruised over the Tanaris Desert, the sand flew into my eyes and clogged my ears, which allowed for plenty of meditation during the flight. I finally arrived about 30 hours later, landed and cleaned the sand out of my orifices, while jumping in circles to increase my CPS (cleaning per second). As I walked outside to the Zeppelin tower on my 60% speed kodo, I let loose a string of cusses longer then any heard in the past of humanity, including A Christmas Story. I had just missed it, and so I prepared my wrist cutting machine in case it took longer then 5 minutes. I decided to put a record on, and the first one I had grabbed from my garbage can where I keep my 45 rpms just happened to be Wu-Tang Clan. A solid choice, considering the killer mood I was in. I put the record on and took off my pajama shirt so I could rock the Wu-Tang tattoo on my chest (Derrick had 2pac). The shoddy built in speakers on my record player busting out the vocals and the beats, my mood began to improve. Finally, after about 3 hours (or so it seemed) the Zeppelin arrived, and I boarded while spamming /salute to everyone I saw.Then, out of nowhere, the worst thing that could have possibly happened did. I had always thought myself very smart and clever and a good World of Warcraft player, so I always had my Player vs. Player flag on, just in cast any noobs wanted to get steamrolled. A Night Elf Hunter named Legomyego started casting an AIMED SHOT. I didn't know what to do, I had froze up, I was drooling on the keyboard and completely useless, his pet who had been stealthed attacked me from behind with the Claw attack and all I could do was roll my face on my keyboard, luckily I somehow hit Bear Form and gained immunity to Polymorph effects. It also increased my melee attack power by 120, armor contribution from items by 370%, and mt Stamina by 25%. By this point, I was losing badly, the few seconds when I had froze up had almost lost me the fight, and at the last second, a miracle from Buddha, the hunter lagged out, and ran right off the edge of the zeppelin. I knew I had been the superior fighter and /yelled FOR THE HORDE LOLO! He hadn't released his corpse so I know he heard me and wanted to /wrists right there. The zeppelin was moving now and headed straight for backwater country, Brill. I decided to take a short nap so I headed downstairs and into the cabin, and typed /sleep.Who knows how long later, I could hear the stampede of feet above my head, and the first thing that crossed my mind was that we were under attack, but then I realized it was a herd of lowbies seeking exit out of the worst starting area in the history of WoW. Agamand Mills? More like Stupid Mills. Anyways, being an adventurer I launched myself off the side of the zeppelin and landed, taking 3732 damage, a good omen. As I turned my Teal Kodo towards Western Plaguelands a single thought ran through my mind, O jad mi en tow ski ski. Which roughly translates to "Wow, I'm jonesing for pulled pork". No time for that, I put my Carrot on a Stick trinket on to gain 3% mounted speed, and put auto-run on, directly for the Bulwark. While traveling, the Wu-Tang record ended, and the needle was simply riding the middle of the old fashioned CD. I traded Wu-Tang for Ready to Die and continued on my way, almost to the Lights Hope Chapel in Eastern Plaguelands.As I dodged in between the level 55 gargoyles and little dog things I decided to have a Trix yogurt, and enjoyed one. Soon after, I arrived, charging my way to the slime area. I dropped in and hit cat form, immediately gaining melee attack power by 40 plus Agility. It also protected me from Polymorph effects and allowed the use of various cat abilities. I was spamming claw and rip, dominating all slimes in my path and crossing my fingers (as best I could, my fingernails were about 4 inches long at the time) for an Oozing Bag. Around the third time through the slime area, I had gathered about 10 Oozing Bags, and decided to stop the suspense and open them. I was sweating and swearing profusely at this point, my nose stuffed full of terrible smelling BO. I opened the first one, it contained 2 Greater Mana Potions and 1 Wintersbite, but no Disgusting Oozeling. The second bag had a number of Liferoot and Sungrass herbs. This continued until the eighth bag that I opened. My eyes popped straight out of my head and landed on my desk with a plop, and my ears fell off, as I had finally achieved my life dream, I had aquired a Disgusting Oozeling pet. A steady stream of OMGZ ZOMGZ OMGS! was falling out of my mouth, and I brought the pet out. The green aura covered my Tauren Druid like a minx coat. The excitement was too much, I started vomiting pure rainbows and singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow.That was the point in time when I decided I wanted a real life Disgusting Oozeling, so I made a jelly ball, tied it to a leash, and painted myself green.This is the tale of the forgotten adventure of a Tauren Druid on a mission. Mission Impossible.
I used to run Kara with my guild during BC, I ran through the first few times trying to get my T4 gloves and helm. Well my gloves dropped about the 6th or 7th time in and I got them.But I still needed my helm.At the time our guild KZ runs were spilt into 2 diffrient nights I was there every day Tuesday and Saturday no matter what for about 3 weeks but that helm would not drop! Then for about 2 months I start having to go to church on saturday nights. (When we did the last half of KZ) the helm dropped every other saturday for the 2 months.Eventually I was allowed to stay home for the raids and I started going again I ran for about 5 weeks it dropped the first 2 weeks (I lost the roll on both) it didnt drop the third or fourth week. when it did drop on the fifth week I lost it again.(I decided it was no worth it anymore and quit going)after 2 weeks of not going they needed me to fill an empty spot.I ran and it dropped I won the roll by 15 from another guildmate.I almost brokedown in tears I was so happy XD
Being a lore-freak and all, i wanted to get some of the really cool lore based weapons. I decided to go for Ashrbringer. This was before WotLK but after BC i was on my paladin and my guild were awesome enough to take time from their ZA raid to do Naxx for me. We did it as much as possible for 2 straight weeks (i think). The last try we were getting tired of it not dropping and my guild was ready to just quit. I convinced them to go 1 last time then we can stop. Last time it dropped lol. I was so happy. My guild master on Teamspeak was screaming "ITS FINALLY OVER!" and everyone started laughing. That was probably the best epic drop ever in my experience playing.
Shortly after Lich king came out i decided to finally level up my fishing skills past 1. I figured to head over to IF since I could level and maybe catch Ironjaw or some other achievement fish in the process. I read up on Ironjaw and suggestions how to catch him on various websites. I then grabbed my best rods, bought a few more to swap out as I leveled skills.Skip ahead past three days of non-stop fishing. By now I was up to 321 skill and had watched 12 people come in fish for a few minutes, catch Ironjaw, and leave... I was getting really ticked about their luck, not to mention fingers that were starting to cramp up...I told myself, I'd fish to 325. If i didn't have him then, I'd give up on him. Two casts before skill of 324 I caught him... and then proceeded to bump a key and drop him... After a few minuted of mindless "OMG WTF did I just do" and blank stares at the screen... I decided to try another spot. I failed at the lava ledge, so i figured what the heck and cast into the Mystic pool by where everyone teleports in.By now I wasn't really caring if I caught him again, I'd already past the 1,000 fish achievement long ago and figured I'd finish out my skills and move onto Dalaran for something there... I had reset up my tabs so if I did catch him, my finger wasn't near the "cast" button or anything else similar. To my happy surprise, I caught him again about 400 casts later just after 441 skill :)Old Ironjaw didn't get away this time. Instead, he will forever rest in my bank. The next time I get grumpy with fishing for something, I can look at him and say to myself, "just a few more casts, maybe I'll get lucky."
when i got my mr pinchy!
Guild needed me for a ZA run and they were at hex lord, i had never done hex lord before and i got through him and won the blood of zuljin, because of the quest for hex lord, i ended up with 21 badges in about half an hour, it was epic
Despair was the second epic item i got at lvl 70. it was one of those drops where i went "HOLY *!@#" and started asking for need like hell. i got the item but not after we died and had to retry the event all over again. it was a pain in the ass to get. unfortunatly later on in northrend i found a kickass axe for my DK.Axe of Frozen Death
Most Epic loot that has ever dropped may just be when I first raided MC.It was my first raid, I hit 60 that night and they were already at Majordomo Executus. There was only 38 people and I happened to be the only druid that night. (I felt pampered! There was 4 others in the guild lol)So anyway, took 2 attempts to get the Majordomo down and when the chest appeared I had no idea what loot dropped from where but to my utter beliefs there popped a Finkle's Lava Dredger! I was the only person in the raid that could use it (as everyone else was geared out as is) so it went directly to me, set me back a ton of DKP that i didnt have, but oh well! ^_^Then, to the big kahuna! Ragnaros! It would be the first time the guild has ever taken him down, and I was just proud to be there! So we put in 2 hours on that fight alone and on the last attempt before we all had to go for the night we finally killed him. We screenshotted the kill, made forum posts and I was shocked to have the Stormrage Leggaurds! I was the first druid in my guild to get them!First and Best raiding experience and has kept me in the raiding lifestyle for 3 years now =D
Probably more epic personally, was having my Enamelled Disc of Mojo finally get replaced by the Facade Shield of Glyphs (from heroic Azjol-Nerub). I was so happy to finally be freed of that horrible looking gear that I DE'd it on the spot and gave the void crystal to the tank, who would cherish it forever in memory of my hate for it.
When me as a rogue without using evasion 2 manned a heroic with me as the tank. I had stacked so much defense rating and agility and parry and etc; that was nearly untouchable which was enough for heroics. It was me and another rogue who just raped through heroic underbolg
Way back in the day when i was level 50 something or other (56 i believe) i was in plaguelands farming to get a disgusting oozling, of course with my luck being my luck instead of an oozling i got a Krol Blade, which made me kind've mad because i was a druid, it was an epic moment of failure and good luck/bad luck, did fetch a pretty penny though
Greetings, after the last xx months taking down illidan and the moment never dropping, i finally gave up and moved on.when we enter Wrath of the llich king, the guild thought that a BT run was gone be fun and fast now that we where 70+++ levels, and when we finally remember tacs for bloodboil and Reliquary :P we failed so bad on them we got too illidan and what don't you know the Damn trinket drops, OH yes people Moment of tyrande drops and i wasent on my Healing class / main.... i was on my Death knight :PI still got it, haha the loot master was kinda enough to give it to me after i start Crying at my computer..
The time i got my full pvp set was pretty epic. Spent months getting all the honor and then finally got to get my set :D
I must say that I almost crapped myself when my http://www.wowhead.com/?item=30883 dropped... That's when they decided to invite a second Feral, but once he saw it drop, he congratulated me. w00t!
I would have to say when I was farming to level up engineering to 375. I saw that khorium scopes were the best way to go and I had seen that the drop rate sucked. I had no choice but to go for it. So that day I grinded the 12 or so mobs that can potentially drop it, I made a nice little circular route around a sunfury building in Netherstorm. Hours passed...nothing. Same thing the next day, nothing after 5 hours of grinding. After 5 days I came to the conclussion that it was useless to go this much or I would shoot myself. I decided to do the daily quest for the Sunfury Attack Plans, why not kill two birds with one stone, ya know? and once that would drop that day I would stop grinding. Another week goes by and nothing. So by now, I've had enough. I'm sick of sunfurys, I'm sick of their stupid signets, and I'm sick of those stupid mana worms that feel the need to appear out of nowhere when youre trying to mount up >.< So as I was about to walk away from the quest giver something inside me says, just give it one more shot, it wouldn't hurt. I grab the quest, port myself to area 52, and head over to farm some more. I sigh, take aim, and start yet another slaughtering. But what's this? first mob I kill? Could it be? I couldn't believe it, I rubbed my eyes and pinched myself to see if I was dreaming. It was the khorium scope schematic! My face filled with joy. Immediatly afterwards it met with the surface of my desk. Where I slept like a baby for about an hour lol. Epic grinding -> Epic Drop -> Epic Nap
My most "epic loot" was my first time in kara, and these boots droped, and i didnt have to fight a rogue or another druid for them. I was happy. :)
I would have to say my favorite epic loot is finally obtaining the cold weather flying. I had grinded dailies for so long i could do them all in my sleep! The day before WoTLK was released i purchased the artisan riding skill for 5K. I didnt even really get a chance to use it, other than the rare occasion i was in shattrath city. But now i am 77, and touring all over northrend, and at epic speed (on my headless horseman's mount to boot!) In short, i like flying =D
I wish there was a summary for hours fished for Mr. Pinchy. I fished for that guy for weeks and weeks. I made alot of money selling crawdads on the AH. After probably 6 months of fishing, at least 10 hours a week, I caught my first Mr. Pinchy. My 3 wishes were 2 Furious Pinchy's and Pinchy's blessing. I was so mad that I cancelled the blessing right after I got it. In the next 2 weeks I caught Mr Pinchy 2 more times. Still no damn pet. I did however get another 2 Furious Mr. Pinchy's. My "epic loot" is the 3 rare catches, but all I have to show for them is 1 Furious Mr. Me.
