    Anyone Feel the Hierloom Items from Garrosh are way to rare?

    Yah I get it they are supposed to be special but I mean come on.... 1% drop rates or less?

    at those odds you could be farming garrosh for month and months and not see a single heirloom...

    I understand the carrot on a stick but at some point the carrot dangles way to far to even see it.

    No, OP is assuming that the droprate is 1% or less.. on my server ive seen multiple people with them so I guess its not 1% hehe

    5 kills in 10M = 1 drop from coin for entire group.

    Perhaps he is using wowhead info
    http://www.wowhead.com/npc=71865#drops:50-17+1

    Ive done Garrosh 4 times on 3 chars, noone won an heirloom.. so 0/100 from my observations, not including bonus rolls.

    edit. apparently you cant get them from bonus coins. didnt know that. thanks.

    Chance does indeed seem to be really low, based on anecdotal evidence that is.

    Ah seems they are rare drops then. Idk, I think I am okay with that. Seems a little overkill though.

    How else do they keep us motivated to farm for months :P

    You can't coin the heirlooms afaik, our 25man got 3 last night. Think I read the droprate to be 5% but not sure. The weps should be considered bonus anyways.

    2 dropped in our 10 man last week. Both were standard drops, none from coins.

    5 last week, 1 the week before that. So.. 1% seems a little low. That's in 25man btw.

    Our 25man guild has killed Garrosh 4 times now. 1st time we got 2 weapons, 2nd time 4 and haven't got a single weapon after that. So for us it's like 6/100=6% drop chance.

    Rare? Man, you'll be farming that bastard for the next 9 months AT THE VERY LEAST, more likely 10-12. You'll get 2 of everything, for every alt ever created and then some.

  14. #14
    1 or 2 of our 10 man team has 1 each.

    1 has 3! (3 in a row as well from the last 3 resets).

    The rest have 0 we've been killing Garrosh since week 1 - they don't seem too bad but they could have maybe done it another way - Loot 1 coin a week from Garrosh turn in 5 for an heirloom etc.

    10 garrosh kills 0 drops

    At this rate I have a better chance of getting the heroic WF weapon before I get any looms.

    We have exactly zero credible info about the release date of next xpac, and previous final tiers ran for almost a year each, so... yeah.

    I thought that from the one Blizzard post that they would always drop the first one that is for your current spec and then a random one after. So not only that but they are also chance drops =/

    We have over 6 months left until the next expansion, plenty of time to obtain one for your main and a couple for your alts. Especially since you have two chances a week, one in flex and one in normal/heroic.

    Also the numbers on WoWhead shouldn't be trusted yet, 430 kills isn't even close to a large enough number to get a good estimation of what the drop-rate is.
