About an hour later, a couple guildies needed help finishing Stratholme. I was in the area, so I headed off to the instance. On my way, a plaguehound and one of those annoying bats knocked me off my mount. Instead of running, I went ahead and killed them. Good thing I did, as the plaguehound dropped a Glowing Brightwood Staff. To this day that is the only BOE epic I have ever looted outside of an instance. In fact, I don't think I have found a single valuable blue since that day either.
That was far and away my luckiest day in WoW. What's your luckiest day? Ever walk out of MC with 5 new epics? Find an amazing pricing error in the auction house?
