    .......you need to be in a raid.

    I've been trying to get Baron Geddon's left binding for 60 weeks or more now.

    Ever since blizzard lifted the requirement that you needed to be in a raid to enter old instances, I've just went straight into MC without bothering to be in a raid.

    Then I just read this from wowhead.

    "To get that to drop, your status must show you are part of a raid, even if you are the only one in the group. I usually have a friend party with me, I switch it to a Raid, then once I am in, they drop off the group."


    That is ridiculous. I've wasted so many tries...how was I supposed to know? That comment was only left 6 days ago.

    I believe "D'oh" is appropriate.

    Sorry to hear that. Sounds like a coding error Blizz will need to fix.

    I find it hard to believe they'd program to this. Depends on if you want to take the word of one random commenter...

    This isn't true, at all.

    A few people I play with have been into MC solo and have obtained a binding.

    Let me guess. The guy who left the comment never saw it when he wasnt in a raid, then got it first time he was part of a raid group? Sampling bias probably..

    Now this I can believe. If not one person had gotten a binding since solo raids began it would certainly be more widely known by now. I suggest you report the comment as inaccurate.

    It especially stung when the person that plays behind me got the binding I need. Across the household , one of us has the right, one of us has the left.

    It's a deep sting.

    Yeah it sounds like an oversight on Blizz's part. If it really is an issue Blizz will fix.

    Not the time that's important, it's the number of tries that could have been wasted, if it is true. The guy added that he knew this from a GM, but obviously he could be trolling. Still waiting for my ticket to find out.

    This isn't true, my Priest and DK both got bindings to drop without being in a group. Meaning since they changed raid group requirements.

    I obtained the right binding during a solo run, so I doubt it is the a different case with the left binding. Sorry to hear that you are having difficulties with it.

    It dropped for me last week on my hunter who was not in a group. The guy who said you need to be in a group is incorrect. Also, try going in there on a class that doesnt need or cant use Bindings and they will 100% drop. Example: getting Ashkandi on a Shaman (which hasnt happened yet, but I am sure it will.) I actually got Ashkandi on my fury warrior last night so I am pretty stoked!

    Yeah, really annoying. I'm always unlucky with drops but whenever I don't care about something rare, it pops up, but when I do want it, it refuses to drop. 60 runs for the binding, 30 runs for a glaive, still nothing. And there's people that get them on their first or second try :/
