My little sister had been really kind to me in a time of heavy stress and too many hours at work. After I had some free time again, I asked my sister if I could play on her account for a while. With all the time at work, my account ran out of time, I was really bored, and it was too late to go buy a time card. That was my excuse anyway. She let me play on her paladin for the night. I wanted to do something nice for her. Eight hours of farming later, I got her the coveted (at the time) red dragon whelp. Her character name is Kaida, which translates to "little dragon". She was ecstatic to find it on her hot bar the next morning next to her hearthstone button. She gave me a very big hug the next afternoon.That was my most epic drop. ^_^
Took me a while but I think my most epic drop was when I was going through DM for the first time. I'm a hardcore horde player, I'll make an alliance to play with friends but that's it. I had never heard of Dead Mines till a guild I was in offered me a run, I was a Blood Elf hunter at the time. Had a hard time getting there but I was enjoying going through the new area and looking at everything. To my great surprise, I got Blackened Defias Leggings, I was shocked to see a set at such a low level.I was then told about the set, and how the hardest one to get was the blue off the last boss. We keep going, greens weren't dropping too well for me and the kind lvl 60 running me, but then to my greatest shock, we killed VanCleef and the chest drops. I couldn't believe my luck, I literally jumped out of my chair and screamed in joy. I got two pieces of a leather set I had never heard of before and one of them was the hardest piece to get.

Arguably the most epic drop I got was a pair of BoE Blue boots from Kraator after I successfully kited him around the entire zone of Shadowmoon Valley for 28 minutes. :p
My most epic loot has to be my Beast Lord Leggings. I had been on several runs with my guild going after that specific item and had lost every greed roll on that item. Finally, we had one last run before Christmas last year and they dropped from Kaltiresh and I rolled greed and got a 100 and got the pants finally! I used those pants right up to the scourge invasion when a purple set dropped off a rare undead mob at one of the invasion sites in Burning Steppes and started using those instead. They now keep a spot warm in my bank vault
Fang of the Leviathan on my Paladin because I so against giving up my Crystalforged Sword for any upgrade that didn't at least look nice!
My most epic loot that I've ever gotten from a drop would have to be the tier 2.5 pants from Ouro in AQ 40, they were the only pair of Retribution Paladin pants obtained there, Pre-BC anyways. I still carry them around!
even though hes is not the one posting it, id like to use my friends story here as an epic moment, when he hit lvl 70 he didnt know what to do, when he decided PvE, he had always wanted to kill illidin, but his guild members at the time said he was stupid and had no shot at ever even seeing T6. let alone get into kara, so he gets geared, moves through each content and moves up, then finally he got into one of the best guilds on our realm, after progressing they had finally reached illidin, the lok tank Right into P3 the guild master (lok tank) dies and 0 druids have a Bres up so my friend has to tank him, and they dont wipe and kill him, he then whispered his old gm in the guild that called him stupid to link the illidin achievment and the fact that he tanked it, after wiping 3 times with the guild master lok tanking
