Don't remember the first epic gear, but the first epic weapon was Shard of the Virtuous from Karazhan.
Way to long ago. Although I remember my first tier piece wast the rogue tier pants off Rag in MC.
The year was 2006, my beloved warrior was level 49.
I was in the southern part of Tanaris, just killing mobs. Found a group for Zul'Farrak, but decided to kill just one more mob before I recieved the invite.
Boom, there was a Warden Staff!
I remember the most useless things...
Kang the Decapitator was my 1st, got it in Felwood levelling my warrior.
I have played since day 1 of wow....My main was a pally back in Vanilla, and my 1st epic ever was BrainHacker http://www.wowhead.com/item=1263 after weeks of farming scorstones in EPL to turn in for rep it dropped off a random undead. It was still to this day a memorable occasion and remember people in guild going nuts about it dropping.

Mine was the lei of lillies from back in vanilla. I had gotten it while questing in felwood, and I remember going bonkers after looting it. I had posted in guild chat about it and had people offering to buy my epic riding mount for me if I traded it to them (back then the mounts cost more than the skill). I equipped it instead and felt so powerful...even tho it wasn't all that awesome.
