An item can be in the game files without being obtainable, you know.
that means that its in the game then as its in the wow-europe database
tho why would thy keep something that many people want only in the database?

What led you to the conclusion that if it's on the official database that it must be obtainable? I'm pretty sure it doesn't say that anywhere. All it says is that it has a 100% drop chance from the "Burning Seed" object, which in fact we have no proof even exists in-game.
just combed the place again with no luck so its safe to assume that the item is not in the game

This is about as close as a GM has got to confirming the item. I wouldn't be at all surprised if the item is suppose to be in-game, but is bugged. It would not be the first time an item was suppose to drop, and didn't this expansion. (I'm looking at you feng)Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment

just tossing ideas now but has any1 tried looking for the seeds as a fire kitty? doesn't work, i have a weird feeling that since they want the item to stay rare that you need to kill heroic raggy in order to see them

This is Gamemaster "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ". Thank you for your patience during these long ticket times.
I had a chance to look over your ticket. After looking through our database, I can say that at this time the Burning Seed is not currently in the game. This may have been something that we were looking into implimenting but have decided to not add it at this time.
I hope this helps you out and that it finds you well and in good spirits.
Well, that is disappointing. I was never fortunate enough to win Fandral's Flamescythe :-(
I honestly feel jiped now. Apparently priests will be getting a minor glyph that allows their fiend to be 'sha like'. This is tied to their sha weapon yet we can't get a glyph of flame cat or the seeds?
I still use fire kitty every fight I DPS. It's quite easy to switch out the weapon for a second to turn into the fire kitty while in combat. It would be nice to have a glyph or these burning seeds, but currently it's not worth making a huge fuss about imo. Get the staff and you can still be a fire kitty for every fight you DPS.
I do feel bad about ferals not being able to be fire kitty all the time, but I have to say something... This is why GM tickets take 5 days to respond. Stop it. Use the forums for questions like this, and tickets for what they're meant for - Legitimate game issues.
Really need to add a glyph that allows Fire Cat, Fire Bear, Fire Tree (better the the current campfire thing)and ofc Fire Boomkin forms. But no, we aren't allowed nice things

Here's what I think Blizzard should do to solve the problem of making something as awesome as fire cats and putting it on a weapon which is only used for a short time.
Create a Druid class quest line similar to that of the Warlock's.
Have the Druid go to Mount Hyjal and Firelands.
Have the reward at the end of the quest line be some sort of item which imbues (reuseable too) the Druid's weapon with the power of the Druids of the Flame.
Have this enchant operate similar to the Death Knight's in that it is good enough to replace standard profession enchants.
Give it an effect that when it procs it turns the Druid's Cat Form into the fire cat and has some sort of actual functional effect to your damage. Maybe a stat increase or a fire elemental blast on the target.
The only problem with the above idea is that it will also become too common to see so many Ferals with this and I definitely think that's something they should avoid. I think it's best having fire cats as more of a rarity.
Anyway something to think about.
Another common example was with the jeweled onyx panther. I remember seeing the 1st one on my server and people were around him, now, I see them pretty much everywhere I go. The same will be said for green fire in 1 month time.
Blizzard always goes against what they preach. They make LFR so that people "can see the content", but then old content is just left to rot. You can jump through hoops to get get fire cat form if you have the staff, but we shouldn't have too. They wasted development time on making a proc on a staff, for it to only last 1 tier and never used again. Im my opinion, is totally pointless. They are just encouraging people to use model editing programs.
