Stupid question time.....why is the Skyfire bow not dropping for me in The Shattered Halls? i have run it about 20 times on my L85 hunter and all the other loot drops but not the bow....is there something i am not aware of like it wont drop as it thinks i dont need it or am i just damn unlucky...I am going to cry if it doesn't drop soon....

The % chance for drops that you see on sites like wowhead doesn't actually guarantee a drop. Say for instance an item has a 10% drop rate, it doesn't drop 1 out of every 10 times you kill the boss. It's just calculates how many times the boss has been killed and how many times that loot has dropped. If you run it five more times, it may drop every time five in a row, or if you're unlucky, you may never see it. (Like the tank shoulders in ZA, they drop every time I'm in there on my rogue, but never once on my DK).That bow isn't too rare of a drop though, so hopefully you'll see it soon.

It's all a matter of probability. I'm running BC instances and raids to put together a mogging set, and I had to run Steamvault maybe 30-40 times to get the gear I needed from there to drop. Just be patient and be glad you can skip so much trash in those instances these days, it'll drop.

A question: will we be able to transmogrify to any of our old low level leather gear? Or is it mail only, all the time (because we'll be wearing all mail at 85)?

Mail only, Katherine. You can only transmogrify same armor types. You can't do leather to mail or vice versa.
