This is a QQ post.
I’m getting desperate.
My gear is pretty good. Gradually, over the course of many raids, I have accumulated iLvL 213 items in every slot but my chestpiece, trinkets, and main hand dagger.
The chestpiece is not so worrisome. I have already passed on the T7.5 chest because someone else needed it more than I did. I’m sporting the Tunic of Dislocation which is not too shabby.
The dagger is just because Blizzard made the Librarian’s Paper Cutter so powerful that I can’t find an improvement. If I could get an Omen of Ruin or a second Webbed Death I would upgrade, but I haven’t been so lucky.
But those darn trinkets.
I’m still sporting Meteorite Whetstone, and even that took me forever to get. I’ve run Naxx endlessly, OS a ton, and all the heroics, and I can’t get a drop.
Grim Toll drops off of four bosses in Naxx. I’ve seen it drop twice, but didn’t get it either time.
Fury of the Five Flights drops from Sartharion with no drakes. I’ve seen that drop no less than three times. I still don’t have it.
We’ve killed Sapphiron only twice on heroic mode, so its not surprising that I haven’t seen Bandit’s Insignia drop. I’ve been holding out on taking any gear so I’d be in position to pick this up. Alas…
The Incisor Fragment comes from King Dred in heroic DTK. I’ve never seen it drop. Its only iLvL 200, but its still a nice upgrade from what I have.
Even Loatheb’s Shadow (also iLvL 200), which drops in 10-man Naxx, has eluded me. I’ve never seen that one, either.
I’m at the point where I am pugging OS and DTK to try for the trinkets. I never PuG, so this is a measure of my desperation. Ulduar is going to come out and we won’t be running these raids anymore. That means I’ll be competing with the whole raid for the new shinies, reducing my chance to get an upgrade.
I know I’m just a victim of the RNG. But it feels like I’m cursed.
It reminds me of my quest to get the Dragonspine Trophy back in BC. I did finally get it, but it was just before WotLK after we had killed Gruul many, many times. And that was just one item, so by making that my goal I was setting myself up for repeated disappointment. In my current situation, I have several possible drops that would be improvements, and I am still waiting.
Maybe this will be the week. Maybe we’ll kill Malygos and the Mark of Norgannon will come to me. Maybe my PuGs will pay off with FFF or the Incisor Fragment. Maybe I’ll get in on a 10-man Naxx pickup just for Loatheb. Or maybe I’ll just settle for buying an Undeath Deck to get the Darkmoon Card: Death.
