I remember when my killed killed Majordomo and I was the only hunter present so I got the Ancient Petrified Leaf which allowed me to start the epic hunter quest to get Lok'delar, Stave of the Ancient Keepers and Rhok'delar, Longbow of the Ancient Keepers. I was super excited!
Any drop is epic when you were searching for it long enough. In my case that would be that damn Ornate Hilt that I got from AQ20 after being exalted with Cenarion for 1 month :P
My most epic loot was, wirt's third leg, hehe. Third leg. Now, wheres a scroll of town portal when you need one?
the most amazing thing I've ever gotten from was the time in heroic magister's terrace I looted a blue quality gem off a mob!
I once found a Glowing Brightwood Staff off a polar bear in Winterspring. My first ever epic and it lasted me a while too. Probably the most significant epic I've ever found in my career.
For me the best drop I got was my beerstein =)It was my very first seasonal item.
This is how it went down... Pre TBC, somehow... these stupid pumpkin food items used to come up all over the place and I always ended up with several of them in my inventory just from killing and looting random mobs... For no reason at all, I would send them.. 1 by 1 by 1 by 1.. to a guy in our guild named Chik just to *!@# him off..... recently I was leveling a new warlock in searing gorge killing some twilight shaman mob and after looting him, to my surprise, I found the epic MOON HARVEST PUMPKIN... Obviously, I sent this pumpkin to Chik lol... Without even knowing the character name/character that sent him the pumpkin, all I heard in vent was "God **nmit*, Spooty!"
My most epic loot was when I got Toothy's Bucket. I had 1 fishing and the fishing daily was for Orgrimmar. I figured I would give it a shot just for fun. Got the quest item I needed in one cast (which got me to 2 fishing!) and went and turned it in. Looted the pouch and pulled out the pet that I didn't even know I could get. Turns out a bunch of my guildies had been trying to get the pets for a long time and they were not very happy with me.
My most epic loot would have to be the time when I was running some people through Ulda just for the hell of it, and I told them that I get the BoE blues if they drop. And of course, the Pendulum of Doom dropped, I was omfg. So I immediately level a shaman to 39 and twinked him out all the way. Before I knew it, I could one shot any class with a WF proc. That was my most epic drop!
Giantstalker's Boots. Not only were they my first epic, but they were distributed by /random 500. I rolled first and rolled a 25, and wasn't even halfway through cursing my horrible luck with RNG before the four other hunters in the raid rolled a 1, 2, 13, and 24. To this day this continues to be the most epic low-roll victory of my career.
