Mine would have to be Thunderfury. When the first binding dropped, no one in the raid wanted it, and I received many tells saying I was insane for investing the time and resources needed for such a thing.Things changed when I finally completed it SIX MONTHS LATER (low percentage drops ftl) and the jealousy flowed freely, moreso because I'm a Paladin :) While WOLK has rendered it pretty much ineffective, I still carry it for special occasions.

Back before WotLK, I was levelling a dps warrior that to this day remains my main toon.All my guildies were already 70, but were helping me get to Outland. One of the early runs was Zul'Farrak, where I was told I'd be very lucky if even one piece of Sul'thraze The Lasher dropped.One Zul'Farrak run. When Sang'thraze the Deflector dropped, everyone in the party was amazed that it happened on my first run-through.Then, later in the same run, Jang'thraze the Protector dropped...and jaws hit the floor! (including mine)Granted, by the time I hit Zangarmarsh I'd replaced this as my main weapon. But we still talk about this, and to this day Sul'thraze The Lasher sits in my bank.
i finnaly got my horse at level 40 on my warrior, pre bc. i was so happy that i rode it all the way to goldshire to show it off. a few minutes later the server reset back a few minutes so i was in stormwind without my horse. i had to run back and go get my horse again, but it was still epic!
It would prolly have to be my second Dragon's call. One day I was on my 15th run of the day in ST I got first dragon's call and i was like WOOOT. a while later i got my lvl 50 rogue quest and was like crap i gotta go back. And when i went back i got my second dragon's call (:
The most epic loot I've ever had drop is a Dwarven Hand Cannon. I mean, come on, it's awesome. Unfortunately, the loot went to my rogue friend, who was sitting next to me at the local internet cafe - I don't hold it against him. Speaking over Ventrilo, on of our guildmates asks a question:Warrior: "What dropped?"Rogue: "My Dwarven Hand Cannon."Warrior: "Awesome! Where is it? Show it off?'Rogue: "Where do you think? It's in my bag."Self: "That's not the right answer, man."Rogue: "You're Right. It's in my pants."Warrior: "Um..."Rogue: "Still want to see my Dwarven Hand Cannon?"
I remember back in the day, when I was but a wee troll hunter... My and a pug was tryin to do Razorfen Kraul. When we got to the first boss, the warrior tank switched to berserker stance to " do more dps". That would have been bad enough, but up till now the healer (Druid) hadn't really needed to heal much, so I hadn't really paid attention to him. After looking at his gear, I realized he was feral specced, and had almost no mana. We tried to attempt the boss anyway. The tank was quickly killed due to his lack of health and the healers lack of heals. The boss then quickly killed the healer and started to attack the other dps. Luckily, I was able to have my bear get aggro, and mend pet and bandage him until the other dps were able to take down the pig. I got a Thornspike, which was fairly good for that level, much better than anything else I had at least.
For me, my epic loot was the Thunder, yes the Blacksmithing Two-Handed Mace. It took me days and days to farm the mats to make it. Then finally I had all that i needed to make it, after that I never put it down until my second quest in Northrend which gave me a Mace that blew it out of the water....still worth it though.
One of my most epic items was my Tear Stained Handkerchief. For some reason, I just started laughing when I first saw it. I still have it for novelty reasons ;).
