Definitely Swift Zulian Tiger!

Mine was probably when I first went to BT and the first thng to drop was the epic healing ring that I won with a roll of 100 to the secound highest person who had 99
Hands down, my moment was when I tamed Shy-Rotam. This was back when only Horde could summon her, and my hunter was a Night Elf. I had camped out Rak'shiri for 4 weeks-- about 4 hours a day walking the path back and forth. I spotted Rak when someone ran in and hit tame first; dispirited, I logged out. Came back 5 hours later, just to HS back when I saw an orc and a tauren standing and doing the summon quest. I paused to watch, and the orc tamed the white lion that comes AFTER Shy is spawned. Both saw me watching, and gestured to Shy, as if asking me if I wanted her. They both helped, even after I died once (back then the fear was terrible, and I feared RIGHT INTO a pair of pride watchers) but after a lot of work and cross faction miming and cooperation, I had my blue tiger. NOTHING will ever make me feel as good-- I earned her (now a he, named Myrddin) with those 2 weeks of stalking, and a stack of kindness from the Horde!
My most epic drop was probably the time in strat when i was farming and farming baron for the mount then i decided to do a full clear because i got sick of it and was doing 1 last run so i started with live strat and took me like 20 min to do all those bosses and then i moved onto undead strat and literally said, "alright.. this is my last run.. if it doesn't drop im tossing my rabbits foot.." (lol i had 3 in my inventory because my character is so unlucky anything would help) so i spend another 30 min clearing to baron and when i killed him it dropped... i was freaking out lol because i really didnt think it would drop but it did.. made my day and rabbits foot became a permanent item in my inventory :)
My most EPIC item I've got is definetly Staff of the Shadow Flame from Nefarian.It was our first Nefarian kill. We hade tryed on him for several days and then in Juni 06 some day I don't remember but it was a beautiful day that I remember. I had bin out fishing with my friends all day and came home in the evning. Grabbed some food and turned on the pc. And there he was, Nefarian. A cuple of tryes and then he dies. The staff droped and I got it!
Back in Vanilla, I was able to get the Fel Striker from UBRS on my very first instance run at 60. I started freaking out on vent, especially knowing how many people farm the instance specifically for that weapon. After that run, I proceeded to rip people apart in WSG, getting top kills on my first 60 BG. I'll never forget it!
My most epic drop occured recently. For about 3 days I camped Pre-WotLK I camped the spawn of the Dalaran Spellscribe hoping for a Black Tabby Cat to drop and eventually gave up when it didn't drop 4x in a row. The day before yesterday I went out to Silverpine to run a friend's alt through SFK and checked the Spellscribe spawns and killed it and it dropped.
My paladin T6 shoulders cause they are supercool ^^
My most epic drop was probably when I won the roll for the Nathrezim Mindblade off of Prince Malchezar. I felt badly because I won against another Mage who plays a little more often than me, and I knew it was pretty much useless until I got a decent offhand, which could take forever! Luckily for me though, we then killed Netherspite, and he dropped the Jewel of Infinite Possibilites! I didn't even have to roll on this one, it was passed to me because of my having gotten the dagger to go with!
One day my group was waiting outside Blackrock Depths for the 5th guy to show up. As we were I decided to start killing the mobs outside just because I was bored. One of them dropped the Warden Staff. At that time I didn't even know what an epic item was. I was just sort of like "hey guys, this staff dropped off this mob and it looks pretty good" and they were all like "wow, that's an epic!" I've never had a world drop epic since then.
