Seems like a good idea to me; people were so desperate they were paying 25,000g and farming trash endlessly to try to get it to drop.

True, but I'm glad they took the Hilt off the slaves

Still kinda hard to get if you PuG these heroics though, considering its still not BoP and no doubt that people already have had one will still need anyway, but yeah good they took it off the skeletons, seems like someone didnt test this thing out on the ptr, kinda silly that people could farm epics and hilts solo.

i have yet to see it drop for any of my toons.i welcome the increase drop rate. i'd like to actually do the questline and get it before i get a 264 weapon in ICC

I got it within about 30 minutes of the patch dropping. I had no idea how lucky I was. I assumed it was like a 5% drop rate, you know, since I've never gotten any extremely rare drops in this game ever.Excuse me, I need to login to my main. I believe I've vastly undergloated.

I forgot to mention that since I got mine, I've seen about 8 amazing weapons drop. Makes the epicness of my Quel'delar a little less sweet.

It was originally even higher, but was stealth-nerfed almost immediately to what it is now, before this hotfix. I saw 4 drop on day one, on each of my alts, then the servers went down, and I haven't seen one since. I know that's anecdotal, but I'm far from the only one with that or similar experiences.

After 2 days of farming I got my drop off the Skeletal Slave, about a minute after the [Server Shutdown in 15 Minutes] appeared, lucky for me but sucks for other people :(.

Pretty much the exact same anecdotal experience here as well Heilig. Fuck statistics.

20,000 gold or more for a weapon that will be outdated in less than a year is a bit much. People will be using this weapon for most if not all of ICC - 20K is more than reasonable - selling for less would mean that every inept turd on your server will be sporting one of these.

At patch day, I entered the Forge of Souls. After killing the two first mobs the Battered Hilt dropped, and everyone was like "Wtf is that, looks useless." Then I rolled a 100, got it, and didn't really care. Now I feel a little bad because I found out the drop rate was so low.
