First off guy, I haven’t played retail in ages. So no, I’m not a retail troll. Second, it’s the drop chance of the ingots. Also, if one person was able to reset all the bosses up to Rag then I am sure other people did as well, it’s just that not everyone talks about things like that. Also going back to the ingots here’s a post from WoWhead to give an idea on the drops.
Ok… just to clear things out.
You need to create the Sulfuron Hammer first. Then you combine the Sulfuron Hammer with the Eye of Sulfuras to create the legendary weapon.
Any Blacksmith can create the Sulfuron Hammer and the rep with TB has nothing to do with it.
All you need are the plans. To get the plans, you need 1 Sulfuron Ingot (drop from Golemagg, Drop rate is pretty low im raiding MC each week since sept 05 (january 06 now) and we only have 2 ingots so far) and you have to talk to the guy from TB in the BRD bar.
Once you give him the ingot, (removed part because of language rules) and the plans to create the Sulfuron Hammer.
The mats for the Sulfuron hammer are:
8 Sulfuron Ingots, 50 arcanite bars, 20 Dark Iron bars, 25 essences of fire, 10 blood of the mountain, 10 fiery cores and 10 lava cores.
In order to create the legendary weapon, you need another legendary drop from Ragnaros (The eye of Sulfuras). The eye of Sulfuras also have a really low drop rate (05% or so).
The damn item dropped 1 time from Rag and I was not on the run =(
The drop rate is considerably low. Of course it’s possible that RNG was just smiling upon them and felt the need to bless everyone involved. I don’t know. But unfortunately because some people don’t play fair and get ahead because of it it DOES leave me skeptical. I’m not saying it 100% was done with exploits, but there is always a chance and with it being a common thing recently I can’t dismiss the idea.
