The Hyacinth Macaw I purchased for my wife at the cost of a few silver(20 I believe) many years ago before anyone knew they were rare. It was one of her first pets and still her rarest.
The most epic piece of loot would most definitely be on my warrior back in the day. BWL was the as far as I got pre-bc so having A** Candy was a dream come true for me :D I still have it locked up in my bank just for the memories.
My most epic item that ever dropped was when I was just questing around and a Staff of Jordan dropped which was perfect for my level... but I was a rogue at the time. It did make me a shiny penny though (800g to be exact) and I was so excited for my first few days and told everyone I could! =)
I think my most epic loot piece would have to be Gorehowl. After running karazan around 40 times with my guild for the dang thing it NEVER DROPPED, every single piece of loot off price dropped at least 3 times each.The fact that the ONE karazan run i missed too it dropped and the tank got it because noone else could use it didn't help lol. It got to the point where my guild just stopped running the place (everyone had got what gear they needed from there) and still not having it at that point was doing nothing more than being just pure irritation. Then my friend send me a tell one day and they needed a off tank for karazan (my guild was on vash at that point so being the only other warrior besides the tank in the raid i was getting all of the extra tanking gear)and by some miracle even tho I didn't need it at that point it dropped and i asked to take it for the sole reason of being able to FINNLY claim that i had beaten that evil instance that had deprived me of the one thing i wanted from it for so long.Last edited by
well I have gotten plenty of phat epics. but I would have to say the most exicted I ever got was the Savage Gladiator Chain that dropped from BRD. It was my first epic, and my heart was pounding.
The day before BC release I had just recently hit 60 about a week before I decide to try out UD Strat. Flawless run, not a single death, and we get to Baron. 5ish% left and everyone is dead except me so I Fel-Dom out my VW and go to town. The mount drops (I didn't even know this thing existed) and everyone needs for it; someone gets a 99. After talking to my guild I get explained that its an insanely rare mount and I click need and roll 100. There were some very very unhappy people.
This one time in AV we had the whole raid rush to Drek and we got there, and tried to down him with no towers down or anything just Drek and warmasters straight up. So we were there and tank pulls everything while half the dps is on him and the rest are dpsing the masters and wolfs. The half of the dps that wasn't on drek died but they managed to kill the wolfs and one master. then the master started pounding the tank and tank died then healers, and drek was at 30% so my pet started took aggro and then this other hunter's pet took aggro and we started bouncing aggro around for bout a minute between pets and us. every time we would feign every time it was up and popped everything. then finally at 10% the other hunters pet died and then he followed so only my pet and me were left, all while healers were rezzing and gaining aggro and dieing again. So at 6% my pet died and i started to tank lol, popped deterrance and kited him arround the room abit and ended up killing him, after he got me to 3% hp. that was pretty epic for me.
Was running around in the Hinterlands with my 50ish gnome lock, back when the Vilebranch Trolls were elite. I was farming the non-elites for mageweave cloth for tailoring and I started to stray abit. I came to the Vilebranch Trolls (forgot what the temple name is), and figured I could kill a few. Around my 20th kill, my jaw dropped. A purple 2H Axe. No idea what it was, other than it was a weapon I could not equip :(. I looked around the sites and found out that http://www.wowhead.com/?item=2291 was a real find. My first epic! Made my day :).
