The day I got both the helm off KJ and the chest off Muru because the person above me in DKP fell asleep.
Mine is not a tale of epic loot. Rather, it is an epic battle.Wintergrasp. More and more people were beginning to reach 80, and more and more were heading to Wintergrasp each day. It was peak hours, and there must have been over 100 people on either faction. The entire time, neither side had tenacity. We, the Alliance had control of Wintergrasp Keep, and fought valiantly to protect enhanced eternal farming, greater experience gain, Archavon, Stone Keeper's shards, and pure victory and dominance over the Horde.There were 3 raid groups, 2 full, one with a few people, and there were many other people not in a group. Only minutes into the fight, the horde began to attack the keep. We took the east vehicle workshop, and headed over to the west one to slow down the Horde. Only to our dismay, there was half of the entire Horde side in Wintergrasp there, and they had their vehicle capacity. They killed every single one of us that had gone there to take the workshop, while suffering few casualties. Meanwhile, the Alliance left at the east vehicle workshop had been killed, and the Horde took back their workshop.On the AoE mass rez, we quickly mounted up and ran to the gates, got onto the cannons, got several catapults, ran in front of the gates, and prepared to protect the keep at all cost. We began destroying all catapults, demolishers, and siege machines that came our way. However, after some time, the North West Keep Tower had been destroyed, and we lost some cannons. Without that support, 10 minutes into the battle, the Horde had broken through the walls right by that tower. They rushed in, and we did our best to stop them with RP-GG's, vehicles, and with players on ground. Not too long after, they had taken the Western Keep Workshop.We then rushed to the Eastern Keep Workshop. Unfortunately, it was bugged, and for whatever reason, there was no engineer in there, and we were unable to build vehicles. We could now only rely on ourselves, and the cannons we had left. We fended off the Horde, and soon they were coming from the south. They destroyed the walls there without damaging the towers, and rushed in. They broke down the second gate, and were now rushing at the Keep Door. We began to fend them off, and destroy their vehicles. With all of us together, we could easily take down their vehicles. 20 minutes had gone by, and half of the battle remained.After a short break, 3 catapults came from the West opening, and we all rushed over there to destroy them. What we did not realize was that they had 16/16 vehicles, and were all at the East side. They quickly broke through our walls, and again through the second walls. Again, they were rushing the keep. We fended them off, but after a couple minutes, they had 16/16 vehicles again, and grouped up. They began destroying every single wall, and with 13 minutes left, all of our walls were destroyed, and only 2 towers remained.The Horde began to rush with all of their vehicles and all of their players. General chat and Raid chat was filled with players screaming to push out the Horde. We all wanted to win this, and the battle could not be more intense. The Horde players were taking us down one by one, as we attempted to destroy their vehicles. With 8 Minutes left, the Horde had finally broken through the Keep Gate. Time was running out and things were not looking good. "AoE the entrance to the Keep, and AoE around the titan relic!" I screamed in general. A moment later, at least 50 of us were at the entrance of the Keep, just AoEing the entrance and steps, destroying siege vehicles and killing players. Inside, around 5 people were finding stealthed players, and focus-firing on them. Another couple dozen people were in the keep AoEing around the relic.With 3 minutes left, the flame breath from the catapults was starting to take down our forces, and groups of 5-10 died at a time. Soon, most of us were rushing back to the spot to destroy the 16 low healthed vehicles and dozens of players with very low health. We got back, and destroyed everything in the base, but more and more Horde were coming. With less than a minute left, chat was filled with people saying things like "Woot, we won!" and "Pull your head outta your asses, this is NOT over yet. Don't get so %^&*y." People should have listened to the players like the second one mentioned above. With 15 seconds left, the horrible message flashed across all of our screens: "The Horde has taken control of Wintergrasp!"We did not win, but it was the most epic battle I have ever seen, and in raid, just about everyone said "Oh well. See you next battle." Two and a half hours later, we reformed group, and took our revenge. We were leading the siege on Wintergrasp.True story by Lafali of Hellscream-US
My "most epic" drop ever wasn't a drop, per se. It was me finally being able to walk in to the Champion's Hall after weeks and weeks of PVPing on my Paladin. Remember way back when... before "honor points" were a currency? When you had to dedicate yourself to PVP to reap any true rewards? When there was no such thing as cross-realm battlegrounds, and everyone knew each other? Well, those were awesome times.I logged in that Tuesday afternoon, saw that I had finally hit rank 6, and proudly walked in to the Champion's Hall to look around at this relatively rare zone. I remember feeling so "cool" when my friends asked how I got in there.I miss the old days, way before BC came out. I have 3 gigs of screenshots, 4 years worth of WoW, I LOVE looking through them and remembering old friends and events. :)
Probably winning this against another hunter with a greed roll of 22.Ah, the good old days.
Sinister Squashling, all the way.
The most epic thing that has happened for me was I got the Brewfest Kodo and Brewfest ram on the same kill when my friend predicted it would drop for me :P
In the past, pre tbc on my hunter, i was farming humanoid ogres in deadwind pass ~ ugh ~ cant remember the exact names of the place, but after a nice 1 hour of farming, a staff of jordon dropped, i just happend to be in a internet cafe and ran around the room screaming! when i settled down, i went back to the pc and continued farrming, next mob i killed -> Warden Staff ......... Nerd screams are so fail x_x
I think I'll go with the Tabard of the Argent Dawn this time. I've been a fan of the Argent Dawn/Crusade for the longest time ever (and the Scarlet Crusade before its corruption), and I really regret how I could never attend the first Scourge Invasion, hence - no tabard. Needless to say, I was really excited when I spotted hints of second Scoureg Invasion. The moment I saw the tabard back in play, I so totally bought it. Now, that I am also known as the "Argent Champion", I am one acomplished Argent Crusader.*cough* Forum name *cough*
I can't quite call it my most epic "drop" per say, but the first moment I felt truly epic was when I received my very first epic, which was acquired through enchanting, back when Nexus Crystals were actually worth something. I think I may actually have it still laying around somewhere. Yay for purples ^^
The most epic item I ever got was my Shadowcraft tunic on my rogue back in classic. No one in the raid had any experience with the instance (including myself) or raiding in general. We wiped so many times it became routine. I had to leave the instance to repair three times and I only left after more 1/3 of my gear was broken. The entire thing took us about 9 hours to complete. We had cycled through probably 25 people or so as well. The Beast gave us the most trouble as never had a tank with the gear necessary to absorb the damage he dished out. We ended up having the rogues evasion tank which meant I got to die around 2 minutes into the right at every attempt.I did hear my favorite quote on vent from this event though. My druid friend had just aggro'd some spawns while everyone was returning from a wipe. I was telling everyone on vent to get ready to fight but he stopped me and says "There are some mistakes that ritual suicide can fix" and proceeded to jump from the highest level to the bottom, killing his character. I laughed so damn hard. To beat the General, we had a hunter kite him while we took care of the adds. In the end it was worth it though.I still have that tunic in my bank. It was such a rough but fun experience I refuse to get rid of it.
The most epic drop i ever got was http://www.wowhead.com/?item=28766. I hit level 70 shortly after TBC came out and farmed kara once a week, every week. first as content, then for badges, but never once did the drape drop. over a year of prince kills. not one cape.So, here i am in 4/5 T6 with my nethervoid cloak running kara to sell epic gems and the cape drops.i made a mage really mad when i looted it to myself and replace my nethervoid with it. It was a huge downgrade for me but i wore it to all my sunwell raids, i didnt care. Now im level 80 and that and my sextant of unstable currents are the only 2 peices of loot (minus what i still have on) that i havent DEd.truly feels good to get a peice you have wanted for over a year :)
I got it today, actually - my brand spanking new Tunic of the Lost Pack. I was invited to a Naxxramas run today by a good friend of mine whose guild run was one DPS short. When we got to Heigan the Unclean, it was clear that a vast majority of our DPS was not familiar with the Heigan Dance. At about 40%, every DPSer but me died - it was our MT, two healers, and myself.18 minutes and a godly number of Mammoth Cutters later, Heigan was dead. When the master looter saw the Tunic on the corpse, he declared without question that it was going to me and that anyone who disagreed should suck it and learn how to dance. :)
Well, this will probably seem a bit cliché, but my Pillar of Ferocity was the most epic drop I've gotten. I never raided much preBC, and was in a very small guild until we merged with a much larger guild. My very first raid with the new guild was Hyjal (Gruul had been the extent of my 25 man experience up to then). I was nervous and eagerly wanted to prove myself to the new guildies. Well, they had never killed Anetheron, my guild showed up new to the instance in general. We breeze through the first boss, wipe it up a few times on Anetheron, then we finally down him. It was a great bonding moment with the new guild - and lo and behold, the Pillar drops. First kill with this guild and for myself.It was amazing, and I was very lucky to be the only feral druid in there for that run, seeing as how there were 3 other ferals that offtanked from time to time.Ralias of The Seventh TrumpetBlade's Edge
Would have to say when I was questing around with my buddies and we had Skullflame Shield drop... i didn't get it : (
getting my... http://www.wowhead.com/?item=19289earlier in the day, right before getting the first ...http://www.wowhead.com/?item=18832in my guild :Dtook us months to get one of those :(
It was a few days ago actually, and I on my pally. Me and a few friends were doing normal Violet Hold. Only three of us were on vent, the other two were were pug people. When the tank dies, normally the group wipes; and when the group wipes in VH, ya gotta restart the whole event.But we were so lucky as to not have to wipe fully. We all died once, but the druid healer had a soul stone, and used it in time to rez everyone. We pulled through until the next boss, which was the arcane ball dude. On him, my pally tank died along with two dps. I thought it was a wipe, so stupidly I walked all the way back into the instance making myself alive again. But not all died, and thus I was stuck because of the doors locking while the instance is in effect. Luckily there was a warlock in the group and he was quick on his feet to summon my butt back in. We pulled through, the boss reset without us having to redo everything and the Riot Shield dropped for myself. Very nice upgrade at the time.-Reinheld
My Spirit of Summer. It literally took me two weks of walking around Azeroth, while lvl 20, to desecrate enough flames to buy it.
Well i would have to say my Headless horsemen mount i was just running it to get the title and after like two runs it drops. well we all passed and /roll'ed and what do you know i got it and one of my friends/guild members was bagging me for offered me all the gold he had i said no i wanted it too its not much of a big deal now but then no one had it on the server it was one of the 1st drops and i had never got anything cool like that before it was just epic.
Old school...The Halbard of Smiting. Two of us rolled on it and the other guy got a 91. I closed my eyes and hit need. Rolled a 100. Other guy was quite ticked.
Probably the most epic drop or rather (epic-ly notable) was fishing up Old crafty in Orgrimmar. Everyday between BGs and all my spare time I spent fishing. It took me over two weeks of fishing with no sign of stopping. However one night I had stayed up late doing BG's with my guild, really tired and half falling asleep. ( I kept my fishing skill on a hotkey button and clicked over and over to go faster.) Not really paying attention the box came up "This is item is bind when picked..." My eyes saw it but my finger didn't register fast enough when it clicked the fishing button again and Old crafty was lost into the waters of Orgrimmar once again. I haven't been able to catch him since!Nothing like catch and release :(
