I remember running out the Barrens and killing goblins trying to get the Savory Deviate Delight recipe.. I spent several days killing Mobs just to get it. One other would be running Kara the first time and doing and epic faceplant on Maiden =)
The most epic loot i have ever gotten was my hand of RagMy guild had spent months in MC, i had farmed all the mats, had the epic hammer, and only needed the Eye of Sulfuras to complete itWe spent weeks on Rag, attempt upon attempt, failure upon failure, wipe after wipeWe almost had a guild break up over it, but after some officer reshuffling we starting hitting big guy againFinally, after weeks of tries, we killed him, and the eye droppedI was happy as anything :p

I started playing WoW well after it had been out for a long time. In fact it took me several weeks to even get leveled high enough to get in Outlands when TBC released.It was always so frustrating to hear about a funny quest or item name - only to experience it weeks or months later after it was old news. By the time I ever did an instance or raid anything that dropped had been seen a million times. I just never got to be the 'cool' kid with an item on the front end before everyone had it... or in my case often they had it and already upgraded it.Enter wotlk... finally I'm there from the start getting to see and experience things with the first tier of folks! I even manage to get into a regular 10 man Naxx in the first few weeks. So here comes my most epic loot - first run the trash of the Arachnid Wing dropping an Omen of Ruin. I finally have my 2 minutes of WoW fame. haha... Very fun to be inspected and having people ask where I got something or give me a 0.o whisper. Just something I'm not used to. Even here on Wowhead, I posted my first item picture as this item hadn't been posted yet.Now that's an epic loot! : )
The drop is only as epic as the length of time you've waited for it.
The best epic battle ive ever seen was the battle against the world boss lethon it was such a great battle My friend and i gathered up about 5 or 6 raid groups of nothing but lvl 70s and 60s we had it all planed out so that if we didnt win we could atleast get him below half health.......The Paladins would run in first and tank while the hunters would send in there pets and range lethon then the healers would be spread out by each group to heal anybody that needed it then the warlock would do the same as the hunters except they would send in there minions of course lol the warriors would do the same as the Paladins while the Mages would just do nothin but spellcasting All of us met up at the entrance to the twilight grove we waited for about 10 mins to let anybody who didnt arrive yet would get there at the stroke of 8 we the paladins and warriors with pets and minions at there sides me and the rest of the hunters ranged Lethon while the mages did nothin but casting around him while the healers were jumpin around healing and resurecting people things were going great until Lethon took down most of our healers all hope was lost until out of nowhere in come running in like 20 healers with a group behind them it was such a sight all you could see was lots of people attacking a huge dragon i wish i would of recorded that after about what felt like and hour Lethon had been down to below half health we were cheering already as we were cheering we didnt notice that almost 2 groups of people had left This time we didnt give up we kept on atacking him finaly he was down to less then a quarter of health we were so happy then Boom literaly 3 groups went down everybody kept on yelling COME ON KILL HIM! GIVE IT ALL YOUV GOT!then Boom another 2 groups went down Lethon had only bits of health left we knew we were dead but in come runin in 1 group of paladins finaly Lethon goes DOWNall of us were so happy we were cheerin and most of the people were dancing idk who got the loot and i dont care just being there was a magnificint loot for me and even though i dont have tape evidence ill always remember that magnificant battle everytime i visit the twilight grove
