    Where do bosses get the loot they're carrying.. @_@

    Seriously I have ALWAYS wondered this.

    I mean some of it makes sense, like Ragnaros and Sulfuras dropping off him, or Cho'gall and the Hammer of Twilight. Or a Armor wearing boss having like a robe on him that he also drops (which also kind of means what we are undressing the boss).

    But where do bosses get like "Cloth Robes" or "Plate Bracers".

    Honestly by that logic, this is what happens:

    Character 1: Oh my God, those robes on Grand Empress Shekzeer look AMAZING. Look at those stats!

    Character 2: Jeez! She was holding 40 Valor Points?!

    Character 3: Wow..a Mace she wasn't..even....using.

    Character 4: Apparently she was holding a conveniently place Token for armor for the specific classes of Death Knight, Mage, Druid and Rogue.

    So seriously can someone give me some kind of explanation?!

    (This is not a really serious thread, just some fun "speculation" if you even want to call it that for where bosses get the Valor Points/Justice Points, Weapon, Armor, etc they wear. Have fun.)

    I've always been curious about them holding "lore" weapons. Like Prince Malcahzaar (sp, last boss in Karazhan) having Gorehowl. How in the hell would he have it?

    There was a Dark Legacy Comics quite awhile back that answers this question - it's pretty hilarious, I'll see if I can find it.

    Maybe after we kill the boss, we grab loot from their mouths? Maybe for the bigger bosses we grab items of fallen heroes who have tried to kill the boss but failed so the boss ate them?

    This is one reason I liked the whole "Cache of the Aspects" thing. At least they made a point that "we're rewarding you with magical items that we've stashed away."
    Praise the Quest Writers for they give life to otherwise boring expansions.

    I'd be like: GG Aspects. Where the fuck were these items 5 minutes ago when I could have used them? Stopping the end of the world is kind of a big deal and you were holding out on me? Fuck DW, I'm using this shit to skin your ass.

    You'd think some boss somewhere would figure out that if they left the people-sized loot at the entrance to their lair that adventurers would leave them alone. Really, one should get valor points (fame as a hero) from raids, and then the rewards would come from the faction armories. Quests and other repeatable adventures would provide random rewards.

    Didn't you know? The bosses always JUST finished shopping at the vendors before you arrived and you missed them

    It's nothing, explain to me why does an ordinary shore crab in Krasarang has more survivability and damage than bigass fuckin' Burning Legion doomlord.

    tokens are something that prove you killed that particular boss like his helm, eyeball, lips etc
    the deathwing weapons are literally pieces of deathwing you are using as a weapon
    when you loot a boss you are also looting the entire room technically like when you kill illidan the bulwark of azzinoth (which used to be a doom guard's shoulderpiece) may have been hanging on the wall
    us adventurers will take anything that isn't cross-dimensionally welded to the floor
