My Very first epic loot drop was wayyy back pre BC, It was my 2nd MC run and I got the azuresong mageblade with the DKP I had saved up.
One of the most epic drops was when i was leveling my Paladin, i was in Alterac Mountains killin some Ogres for some random quest. Thats when i saw this elite walking around the area. I thought to myself what a great way to test the new changes to Ret paladins since the new patch. So i charged in and to my amazement was doing surprisingly well against an elite 2 levels higher than me. When he went down i didnt expect any awesome loot, but there it was, an epic 2H Axe named Fiery War Axe. I decided why not i'll use it. That very axe lasted me all the way from lvl 39 till 51 when the Ice Barbed Spear finally replaced it.
Getting Ash'kandi on my warrior, Pre-BC. That sword was so amazing.I miss when purples were purple.
My Most epic drop come's in 2 parts.I was in a guild with friends for a long time and decided to leave them for a raiding guild. This was way back in "The old Days" when MC was still fresh and challenging.Things hadn't been going well in the new guild, and I found myself wanting to leave, but didn't know how to do it.Late one night I was running DM with some friends from my previous guild, Had completed the full tribute run(Remember THAT!) and whilst someone was opening the tribute a noticed a dusky tome just behind it, so I decided to open it.Inside I found: http://www.wowhead.com/?item=18401At the time(around patch 1.9) this was rarer then dodo eggs, and to have this drop was a total coup. Unfortunatly, fate was against me, as we had been running with 2 pali's, and the rest of the group had been on TS talking about what to do. What they decided, without telling me, was that they were going to use this to get me back in the guild, a roll was decided and won by someone else. a whisper then came that if i came back to them they would give me the book.Needless to say, I was back in that guild fairly quickly, and a week later I had a shiney new sword.The other part to this is that nearly 3 years later, I am still in this guild and still the MT
Another epic drop i got was after i was in Kara and had just got done with the Little Red Riding Hood event and the Trial Fire Trousers dropped. I was one of two locks in the grp and the other was full out epic-ness. i on the other hand was not. i lost the roll by 5 pts. then a couple months later i got the gladiators legs and was pretty happy until they made the merciless available from bg's...
My most epic moment in WoW:Level 31 Tauren Enhancement Shaman in SFK.Was helping out 2 warlocks and a hunter.One warlock had greedily soulstone himself, while the other's was on cooldown.Apon entering the room with the ghost soldiers, we start to pull them, and the Silences commence. One warlock pulls agro on one of the ghosts, and proceeds to run around the room in terror, only agroing more mobs. He dies, but Soulstone resurrects. He pulls threat again, runs around like a lunatic again, now agroing the boss as well, and then dies again. Some how, the other warlock, the hunter and I were managing to kill them almost as fast as he agroed them, until the boss came. He made short work of the 2nd warlock, and then turned his sights on me. Being that I had been "tanking" I was already at low health, so he kills me. I reincarnate, heal twice, and kill off the last 2 ghosts just in time to have the boss kill the hunter, and reagro me. Some how I managed to kill him, without dieing. After the battle, I'm sitting at between 5-10% health and mana. Sit down to eat and drink, and start the rezzing process. By the time I hit 25% or so, the pat, that we had all forgotten about, comes and agros. Killing them both, I am left, once again, with around 5-10% health and mana. The day was mine.
I haven't gotten anything really epic since I've just been leveling...but if I had to go with something it would be the sword Destiny dropped while a friend was running me through an instance.
