ARGH

So I am a rogue. This rogue, in fact. As you may be able to ascertain, I have absolute shit luck with drops. I firmly believe that the Assassination set is a myth put about to destroy my psyche. I have my own drop rates; when I am in a party that drops a boss, there is a 70% chance or higher he will drop paladin plate; 20% chance he will drop priest/healing gear (Hallowed gear drops like candy), and the remainder of the drops will be leather with +int and +spell crit all the hell over it. I haven't seen leather suitable for me drop since Durnholde.

I ran a full night of instances with three paladins once - one prot, one holy, one ret. They were squealing with glee by the end, and I was in a rage, because seriously, guys. I am Revered with the Keepers of Time and as far as I can tell, the only thing on Aeonus's loot table is the goddamn Legplates of the Righteous, because that is the only thing I have ever seen drop in there. Some of my paladin friends hold their runs until I can log on to guarantee their drops. I am not kidding in this.

So anyway. I've been carrying a short stack of Lucky Charms for like 30, 40 levels now. Periodically I'd give them out as gifts, and I've been down to my last one the last couple of months. The other night I ran a lengthy Shadow Lab run (Murmur you bitch, you WILL drop those damn pants), and in a fit of fury at the end (Hallowed Garments. Again) I mailed the Lucky Charm to my favorite healadin, whom I've been running with since Sunken Temple. "Fuck it," the letter said, "I've been carrying this this for 40 levels now and all it ever calls down for me is pally loot. Hope it brings you better luck than it has me."

A couple hours later he logs in, gets the Charm, laughs at me, and is immediately sucked into a guild BM run. The Legplates of the Righteous drop, of course. Why wouldn't they? He's only been running that instance for months, and he's never seen them. He goes on to get upgrades in every single run he's been in since, and when he went into BRD to start farming for the XL Jumper Cables yesterday they dropped on the first try for him.

Obviously I had a paladin charm. :(

So what about you all? Any tales of woe regarding loot drops? What superstitious items (if any) do you carry around with you?
