This is a drop from Onyxia, and used in the completion of the Hunter epic weapon quest. It has an approximately 20-40% drop rate (depending on Blizzard's mood that month), and can be looted even if you do not have the quest. If you are in a guild that is able to successfully down Onyxia, but you have not yet reached Majordomo, make sure that you are still handing these out to your hunters. This is a useless item for any other class.
This is for the Rok'delar/Lok'delar (epic hunter) quest, the other half is from Majordomo's chest.
Dropped from Cobalt Wyrmkin (Lv57 Elite) in Winterspring too.
I got it in the cave where Scryer is.
Just got this on an Ony tribute run. 6 people, no hunter, so i thought "hey! souvenir!"
i'm a happy shaman!
Just looted this off Onyxia as the only hunter in a 4man PUG, so if anyone wondering they're definitely still around (But why shouldn't they be anyways? ;) ).
Now for getting the Leaf... Hmm... xD
I just got this item off Onyxia, but the NPC in Felwood is nowhere to be seen, anyone know what's up?
Yea so did i about 2 hours ago and i am looking in fellwood and HE ISN"T HERE i am an 80 hunter 2 maned onyxia just for the gold... lol But ummmmmm yea what do i have 2 do 2 get the guy here.
likely making this item no long in game in the future
not likely, guaranteed...guaranteed to be off the loot list. I'm leveling my hunter right now and some guildies have already agreed that I need to get this... I plan to have rock and lock before hitting outland. while true, I do have all three BoA weapons, it will be nice to log out and have people, when they look at my armory, see "awesome" in my weapon slots :)
I got this item during brewfest. I was running to Coren and decided to kill a random non-elite dragon outside (this was the first dragon i had killed during the quest) and it dropped!
As of 3.2.2- Just killed Onyxia in a 10 man and she dropped this. I had the quest for it though so I don't know if it only drops for ones with the quest or if it is random. But just know that it is still possible to get it off of her level 80 form. =)
If you have NEVER killed onyxia before, and are a hunter, you can actually receive the Feat of Strength for Onyxia (60) for finishing this quest. Because the feat of Strength tracks if you have any item for Onyxia, upon completing Rhok'Delar, you will be granted the achievement. So in other words, if you make a hunter and level him/her to 80 and manage to get the leaf and kill Onyxia, you'll get the Feat of Strength for Onyxia (60) when you turn in the quest and acquire Rhok'Delar. (Armory Sairafen- Scilla US server and look under general achievements. My hunter alt has the Ony 60 FoS after completing Onyxia 25)
Okay, I attained this from the 60 onyxia a week ago, is it just me or is it not soulbound? Because if so its going to sell quite highly.
This may be a stupid question but is the quest there at 80? err for 80s?
I have 3 spread out on my alts.... couldn't get rid of the $%^& back in the day...
This sinew also drops from black dragons in burning steppes, noticed as i was going to kill one of the demons for the staff quest that the in game quest helper thing said they dropped them. It dropped from first kill as well so may be 100% drop rate.
So.. can you still get it in the 10/25 man onyxia?
I believe I have figured this item out.
NOTE: I have no experience with this, I am just looking it over for when I create a
in the future.
Some people have a 100% drop rate, yet others have a 0%.. Why? Well, this is my assumption:

Without that quest, you WONT get the

EASILY SOLOABLE AT 60. (or at 51...)
(This post is current, up to and possibly beyond Jan 1, 2010.) (3.3, 1 ICC gate out)
Now that Onyxia is lvl 80 25-man do I have to farm it from the dragonkins or is there no point?
I did this quest about a month ago on my main at level 80. I never did Onyxia and got this to drop off of the mobs in Burning Steppes, and when I picked it up, I recieved a feat of strength. So you get the Feat of Strength for Onyxia 60 even if you've never touched onyxia at all.
I found it pretty freakin' sweet.
Also just completed this quest, and you are rewarded with the Feat of Strength for receiving Enchanted Black Dragon Sinew, rather than the quest item you have to loot (Mature Black Dragon Sinew)
has earned the achievement !

I really thought they'd have fixed this back when they also fixed getting it from Nefarian.
Still drops from Onyxia 25 men.
As of 4.0.1 This is still a 100% guaranteed drop rate if you have the quest in your log. There was word that This whole quest line was removed but it was announced that this quest is still doable by young level 60 hunters.
November is the last month you get to do this quest line.
Once Cataclysm is released the quest will be removed.
Just picked this up from the first mob I hit.
As of 4.0.1 regardless of the number of times I've downed Onyxia post 80 upgrade I was still awarded the feat of strength.
Link to my armory profile. it should be in my recent feed or at least listed under the achievements.
Still well worth doing now just in case it's gone come Cata.
edit: Not sure why that's blanked my armory link. But it's Nifan, Bronzebeard EU if anyone feels the need to check
I was on the quest with my hunter. I killed my first mob, a Scalding Broodling (welp), and the sinew dropped. Crazyness.
Unfortunately, this item is unique, so you'll have to go to burning steppes twice if you want the hunter only best bag in game 24 slot.
On patch 4.0.6, i still have this item on my hunter after killing her at level 60, and never gotten then quest finished. But wowhead of course says the quest no longer exists, and after all these years I have no clue what to do with it.
