the second you edit out anything, including names the picture is then suspect.
The fact of the matter is, the WoW community is made up of fairly resourceful people. MMO-Champion itself is full of pretty amazing data-miners and snoopers. If we didn't find empirical evidence of it dropping with so many people assisting in the search it more than likely never dropped until the ninja hot-fix.
It also raises a flag when you have 5 Threads 'Post Maxed' on the official forums with not a single blue response.
In my Opinion it all boils down entirely to Blizzard not wanting to have to handle the fiasco with all the wasted lucky charm rolls.
Well, there are roughly 500 servers. Sha spawns roughly 5 minutes after a kill. Assumed he's killed within 20 minutes of his spawn, this leaves a server at approximately. 3 kills an hour. This translates to 72 kills a day. But lets go ahead and assume that during the dead hours of the day, he is not killed. Lets just say between 3 and 9 am.
This brings a hypothetical kill to 54 kills a day. Seems reasonable.
54 x 500 servers = 27,000 kills a day.
October 9th was his hotfix to spawn more frequently. There have been 121 days since then.
This brings the hypothetical number to 3,267,000 kills since October 9th.
Obviously not all servers kill Sha as frequently as others. Some will kill him more than 3 times per hour, some will kill him less. Even if you cut the kill total in half to 3 kills every 2 hours, you're still looking at 1.6 million kills.
So, yes. Millions.
I'll go a step further! Because I like big numbers.
assuming a full 40 man group kills him each time, you're looking at 130,680,000 individual characters that have killed Sha of Anger, had a chance at loot, and not received it.
Edit: and before anyone even replies with "NO ONE KILLS SHA THAT MUCH" , Yes, they do. Some servers have 40 mans in queue waiting for a respawn. Some servers Sha is sitting upright for hours.
To reach 1 million kills in 121 days, you would need to average 16 Sha kills per server across all 500 servers.
Some can be at 32, some could be at 8.
16 per realm, per day, is the magic number.

Busting out the numbers in here that what I like to see. Not sure why some people keep disputing the fact that no body saw these mounts till the hot fix.
When there was this scandal and blizzard hotfixed it and someone receive sha mount, people spammed wow official forums to death with that armory... however I have yet to see any armory with galleon mount, would be nice to see at least 1 armory with it :/
That's pretty sexy, for something so hideous.
