Before expansion, questing in STV netted me a mid 40's BoE epic shield. My paladin equipped it, even though my guildmates told me to sell it.

Umm.. I was out farming the water elementals out at elemental plateau in Nagrand when i got jumped by two allies. When I finally came back to loot the corpse Lola's Eve had dropped for me. I was glad I got that sucker down before they pounced me = )
I would have to say my most epic loot adventure was back in vanilla wow days. My guild was always struggling to clear Molten Core and all I ever wanted from it was an epic weapon called the Spinal Reaper! (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=17104)I wanted it so bad I even specced PROTECTION! I know, shocking!I would have to say after 2 months of trials, ranging from people leaving the guild, wiping to trash mobs, and ninja looters. We finally made it to Ragnaros. Though just my luck my brother came along with us for the first time ever and the first thing he saw/did when he saw Ragnaros was say, "Oh, a new quest for me!"Needless to say he started the event while all 40 people were trying to prep up and things even looked worse off than it was to start with. Though with quick action and the best off-tank you could ever have (Me), we downed Ragnaros and my Spinal Reaper dropped. It was hilarious cause I had to DKP bomb it. I think I had like 150 points.Though after that all, I repecced to my favored spec arms, and proceeded to wreck up people in pvp.
When our guild attempted Ragnaros for the like the 20th time, got him down to 2% when the adds came, our mages were oom and couldn't nova, they tried to to Evocate under the pressure >.<.Tanks were out of place, and when Ragnaros emerged, it was surely a wipe.But no, a shaman got *!@#y, anhk'd Frost Shocked and /gg Ragnaros is dead.39 dead. 1 Alive. Ragnaros dead.
Getting my Plagueheart Ring off of Kel'Thuzad in Naxxaramas 40.
Another "epic" drop except on a former rogue twink. I had been trying to solo revelosh for the shoulders for about a day and failed. Then with no guildies able to help me try to run it I found myself in the LFG channel. After flying to the badlands and waiting for 20 minutes my group arrives after finding out that they have never ran uldaman before. Cutting short to the instance with much insistance on their part we go for the vikings. After wiping twice on that I say drop it last run. On the last run somehow ended up aggroing about all the adds possible attack Revelosh. Predictably i vanish and see what i can do only to have my stealth break. So I blew my cooldowns and somehow most the adds die. At about 5% health revelosh falls on almost solo with about 25% durability. And finally the shoulders dropped providing me with an epic run of many laughs.
Grinding in Western Plaugelands as a warlock and had just gotten my felguard and was so psyched out by how awesome this massive annoying creature was. I was a total noob at the time and was just grinding with auto-loot on. My only-god-knows-what-kill it was, I auto-looted to 4 items. I noticed that one of the items was purple and my eyes instantly widened to a ridiculous radius, my pupils were dilated and I felt like I was going to have a stroke. I looked in my bag and saw Bloodrazor sitting in my inventory. I whispered my friend and was hopping around like an Easter bunny on cocaine.
Well once upon a time. I rolled a mage and throughout raiding ventured into the god awful mistake of an instance Naxxramas. (40 Man) this followed my continually clearing of BWL in which case even after 40000 runs still never happened to get a piece of loot from either. Finally i gave up followed by the next day of my guild basically getting every piece of mage loot there was. Then some day after that BC came out in which i rolled a warrior and got epix loots and cleared BT and could pew pew everything. the end!
When i need rolled against another warrior and won the King's Defenders we all roll a 44, i was lucky to be randomly pick to get it
