I'm split between The Horseman's Reins and Robes of Insight. I thought the reins were 15% drop rate since they dropped on our first kill and I assured everyone we'd get there's within two weeks. Only one that dropped after popping it 5 times a day for two weeks. >.< Robes because after seeing how hot they were, I made a female draenei priestess just to wear them ;P
The epic mail chest out of BRD--a friend had run that instance about 20 times while leveling his hunter, and it never ropeed for him. My first time in there on my own hunter, I got it...even if it hadn't been a huge upgrade (wore it until well into Outland) I would have felt pretty smug.

Brutality Blade, one guildy rolled a 100. but was denied ( he already burnt his roll that day) then third guildy to roll BAM 99... I was a sad panda. The I WTFPWND his 99 with a frigging ONE ZERO ZERO. I was like gimmie my friggin sword! Kept that mutha till TBC!
The most epic loot was when I was raiding Tempest Keep for the first time ever, the day before WotLK came out in a PUG (Pick-up group, not with a guild). We were easily working our way through the instance for the most part. I was getting ready to leave because it was so late and we had been in the raid for so long, but we finally made it to the final boss, Kael'thas Sunstrider. The entire raid wiped the first time, we tried again.. and we wiped again.Everyone wanted to leave and would have if we wiped one more time. The last try: We were doing the best we had done so far everyone thought we had it, but when we got him to 10% the main tank died. The off-tank picked him up after a few clothies died. Three people left the raid at this point. The off-tank died soon after when the boss was at 6%, and after that three healers died along with most of the raids DPS.At this point there was only 10 people left.. all DPS classes. By the time he was at 2% there was only 3 of us left. It was me (a Warlock), a mage, and a hunter. He was charging at me so I used Soulshatter, then he turned to the mage and she used Ice Block, Kael'thas then turned to the hunter and he Feigned Death. We kept DPSing as hard as we could. The mage died next, but me and the hunter managed to kill him, each at around 5-10% hp remaining. Everyone was screaming "YESSS!" in Vent. It was a good moment.Then the most amazing thing happened, Ashes of Al'ar dropped. It was me vs. 37 people, the highest rolls were a 95, a 97, a 98, and two rolled 99. I was the very last to roll, I thought I had absolutely no chance of winning and I /rolled. At first I didn't even think I won, I thought I rolled a 10.. then a second later I realized I actually rolled a 100 and I won the Ashes of Al'ar! I fell out of my chair with excitement, I had been wanting this mount ever since it was announced that it was in the game, and I actually got it on the day before Wrath of the Lich King came out! It's so fun being the only one on my server with the majestic phoenix mount, it's the most epic thing that has ever happened to me in WoW and will be enjoyed for years to come! :)
Mine would have to be Titanic Leggings Pre-BC, dropped off Nefarian on the first day the new recipe hit live. That was back when 1k gold was a lot to have. I was selling them for 1500-2k each, guilds were pooling money togeather to buy them from me. Only one on the server with it for a few days.My first Epic recipe and an awesome experience!
Man, the only thing that ever comes to mind when I think about epic loot I've gotten was when I was farming for Crusader enchant formulas in Plaguelands. I was in that tower for hooours trying to get myself those damned green forumals. Of course, towards the end of the night, I still didn't have Crusader, but instead I got an Axe of the Deep Woods. To this day I've never been able to figure out if I had really crappy luck that night or ridiculously awesome luck. XD
