    Ok I'm good at math, generaly, but these odds defy me....

    Ok so someone figure out the odds...

    My character, Dethwulf - shandris, needed main hand warglaive. Decided to go, got it today. Yay right!?

    So later, I was happy, and encouraged my friend who needed offhand warglaive. I'd help her run it fast.
    We go. Same day, 3 hours apart, she has her Warglaives cheeve too. Lol!

    Sorry if its cheesy, it just made me happy, and then it doubled when my friend got the exact same the same day!
    We're totally the wondertwins.

    The odds aren't as horrible as you might think considering the MH warglaive is 5% drop rate. If you'd both gotten invincible's reins back to back it'd be really impressive.

    Yes, but how about same day, NO duplicates, I.e. 1st main hand drop for me, 1st offhand drop for me, ran it since Wrath, Never had any other drops EXCEPT hers. She got her off hand with me back in yesteryear, and she got her main hand with me yesterday. Neither of us got extras, and we both got exactly what we needed, does that make sense? On the other hand, I was solo for both my drops. So heres how it worked: Main hand drops, she wins roll. I go by myself for 6 months, get offhand. I go by myself another 6 months. The day I Get lucky and get Main hand - she logs in, and without having farmed it gets her offhand. lol

    I think you cannot get on the Black Temple. You can get in, or at it though

    That happen sometime.

    Little story at the first few weeks of MoP :

    A tuesday a friend of mine (playing paladin) told me "hey go to BT with me I need some Tmog" I wasn't really motivated and he said "maybe a warglaive will drop^^". After the laugh I helped him with my paladin (was my main too). Offhand warglaive drop, I rage a little to play my paladin instead of my fresh monk but that's life right ? Sadly my buddy didn't had the tmog he wanted.

    The next day (wednesday reset, playing EU) I help him again after our raid. Also with my paladin thinking "hey we can't drop 2 warglaives in 2 days". And boom, main hand legendary...

    So I have a paladin with 3 Illidan kill and both warglaives in the bank (just because I was dumb enough to no take my monk RAAAAAGE).

    This isn't about impressing anyone, it's just a sweet story.

    I for one appreciate a good story like this every once in a while in the midst of people complaining, congrats to you and your friend

    I've probably around 100 kills going back to TBC, maybe more. I saw an OH drop that went to another guildy during TBC, didn't see another for years until a MH dropped for me. Since then I've seen a MH drop 3-4 times but never an OH. RNG is a bitch, they are my favourite weapons.

    I think the temple itself has like an invisible wall or something around it, so you can't actually land on top of it from outside the instance. However, you could fight your way through the instance and do something at the area where you kill Illidan. IMO, that would be the most appropriate place for an in-game Black Temple wedding.

    I rolled 99 on both invicible and mimis head in the same week (back when 100% drop ofc) and lost em both to the SAME person rolling 100. Go figure those odds.

    The drop must have been increased since people like to annoy people at SW / ORG wielding them like they are total badasses that are the most hardcore raiders.

    Did a run on a pally for the sake of green DE, got MH. Did 2nd week just to see if i would get OH and i did, and i cant even equip them. So i deleted them.

    This was back early cata, My friend had been farming BT nearly every week thru like ulduar-cata launch he had like 90 something kills or something, saw main hand drop 7 or 8 times but never the off hand once. I went and ran BT just to fuck with him, id gone for a few of his runs but never done it to try and get the warglaive myself and bam the off hand dropped, he raged so hard. He teased me tho saying id never get the main hand. So i decided to farm it every week, week number 4 the main hand dropped so both glaives in 4 weeks of killing it. He nearly quit the game over that...but he got his about a month later.
