    But the loot specialisation is not necessarily the spec I'm playing.

    I don't care that I got the resto item, I just found it curious as their comments were ambiguous.

    They could easily have meant the spec you were playing, rather than not the spec you're playing, but the spec you've opted to receive loot for. That way, as I was for example playing as a feral, they would figure I was most likely to be wanting to level/play as feral and give me the feral weapon first, then any subsequent ones are randomised.

    In 32 or more hc Garrosh kills I've got:

    1x caster staff
    2x caster mace
    1x caster off hand

    >.<

    As a resto shaman I got the ele sham staff drop from my first ever garrosh flex 4 kill. I assume its a random item that fits within your class as opposed to an item that fits to your specialization.

    Also, you have to consider that once you start on heroic Garrosh, you are no longer doing normal garrosh, so you are basically resetting from 0 kills, so no bonus loot protection.
    Guildie of mine has 200+ garrosh normal kills. Having alts is hard?
    Also is it confirmed that bad luck protection works on looms? Even if so, if you got like 5 chars with 10 kills it's not impossible to not get a loom. Unlikely? Sure. Not impossible though.

    Did the staff have hit on it? No? Then its a resto item. Infact as it has crit, better than the 1H mace for rshamen.

    Other facts:

    1) The first per difficulty will be for your current loot spec. This means that yes hunters will end up with 3 bows (flex/normal/HC).

    Most other specs are eligible for two or more. Be happy if you get the Agi staff on a monk, its better than a single 1H axe while levelling to 100.

    2) Bad luck protection applies to the first drop per difficulty, but not thereafter.

    3) Once you have one, its random among them all, you won't get one of each before duplicates unless you are very lucky.

    Sadly you are right
    So far i dint have single first roll HB running garrosh normal with 2 charracters now they become 3 .On mine hunter i get 2 caster shields onle from flex one from normal (ofc after bow) several months ago after that nothing there too
    I really hope that curse of bad RNG to leave me before 6.0 where as we know the drop rate of blooms will be increased and first one will be guaranteed

    Does changing your loot specialization not change your loot drop chances for the heirloom?

    It's not "far better" it's "arguably better."

    Another example of the "if it's not BiS it's garbage" thought process at work.

    do we have an idea of the drop rate ?
    I've killed him 45 times across nm and flex, and got 3 items.

    that would be a 6% drop rate.

    Wowhead do not have stats on them, so i don't know if i'm lucky or not

    Pretty unlucky I'd say. I have 11 NM kills on my monk and I've got 3 items as well.

    I'd estimate it's a 5% chance and you're slightly unlucky (given bad luck protection on first loom of a difficulty over consecutive kills), but it could be lower than that.

    @Demo That sounds above average to me.

    Another anecdote, a friend used 13 characters to get all the looms on flex or higher difficulty. I believe he had over 200 kills before getting the last. (basically relying on the first heirloom per char to get a useful one nearly each time)

    Wasn't there a tweet that stated that in 6.0 (the patch before WoD) you will get 100% drop chance on the first BoA for your mainspec if you haven't already had a drop?

    Anyone who can dig up that tweet?

    Your best chance of getting the two hand would be killing garrosh with an alt, either another dk, some dps warrior or ret pally. After 20+ HC Garrosh kills I got my 3rd HC Heirloom last night. My main is a boomkin, I got int staff first then agi dagger and now agi polearm

    With the release of Patch 6.0, the drop rate of the Heirloom weapons from Garrosh Hellscream on Normal, Heroic, and Mythic difficulties will be significantly increased.

    Players who have yet to get any Heirlooms will have a 100% (guaranteed) chance of getting a spec-appropriate Heirloom when defeating Garrosh on Normal difficulty or higher.
    The chance of receiving additional Heirlooms beyond the first will also be increased.

    I find this interesting

    I'd imagine it means on that difficulty, as its how the heirlooms currently work (And otherwise dual wielders are screwed ove
