So, this happened on the "gauntlet" on the way to Heigan from Noth's room.
My guild refers to that hall as the "loot corridor" as we have had ridiculously good luck with purple random drops there. I think it's because we have started making a point to loot everything; you can see the circular logic here...it's the loot hall, so we loot, so there's a better chance of loot, et cetera.
So last night, we're heading down the hall, joking "Hey, Hunter, go find a purple!" (She always finds them.) And lo and behold, Medallion of the Disgraced drops! Yay purple! Warrior who wants to respec tank is super happy. Yay!
And we keep going on. And over vent - hunter has another purple! Yay! And it's the medallion AGAIN! What are the odds? We don't have anyone for it to go to, so sadly, it's DEed. We all laugh about the weird luck.
We're almost to Heigan's room, when OMG I finally get a purple drop, too! AND IT'S THE MEDALLION A THIRD TIME!?!?? We are pretty much stunned - this has never happened to any of us ever. Three random zone drops, all in the same little corridor and all the same piece? So I've been charged to "Ask those WoW ladies you read if they've ever heard anything like this?" (Oh, by the way, you ladies are now a source of great info for our guild. "Warlock! Go check that on your ladies site!" :D)
So, anyone had really weird luck like this? Or weird loot stories? Any ideas if this is a bug or a one-in-a-million chance? And I'm really sorry if you're a tank that uses shields and could use this necklace. We did take it as a sign from the Loot Gods that our warrior is supposed to re-spec.
- a funny thing happened on the way to Heigan
