The most epic piece of loot I received was my Tier 6 Shoulders; Shoulderpads of Absolution. They look so amazing.
My epic loot was the Reins of the Deathcharger, from Baron Rivendare in Stratholme. It felt oh so good to get it, especially considering I wasn't even trying for it.
Possibly my most epic drop was when after 3 days of farming, I finally managed to get the firefly to drop in Zangarmarsh. After that I was one of the only people on my server that had it, I love the soothing sounds it makes.
One of the most epic drops i have ever gotten was Sunfury Bow of the Phoenix after downing prince for the 85th time it finaly droped. Man what a great day.
I looted my first epic in ZF, its was a Blackskulled Shield i think.
The first true epic (purple) item I obtained (in the days before "epic" land mounts were actually Epic) was a Skullflame Shield, dropped by a dragonkin in Grim Batol. I was farming for red dragonscales to make the Dragonscale armor set for my Hunter. I had been playing since beta, and this drop in the fall of 2005 was quite a pleasant surprise! It sold for 1,400 gold. In 2006 I ended up getting another of these shields (from a Twilight Cultist in Silithus), which I donated to the guild I was in by that time.
