Not so Epic Drops

I was running around on one of my low level alts today when I stumbled across no other than the infamous Sludge Beast, an oozy rare spawn who patrols the Sludge Fen in the northern Barrens. Crossing my fingers hoping for a shiny new green, I made quick work of the disease spewing beast before any other lowbies could swoop in and steal my find.

As I bent down to loot my fallen adversary, something miraculous happened. Hidden amongst the slime was not one, not two, but three precious green items met my eye. Nestled next to some Slimy Ichor were Grunt's Bracers of the Bear, a Prospector's Sash, and a Bandit Cinch of the Boar. My temporary diversion for a single piece of BoE goodness had yielded more fruit than I could of imagined.

Sure, it was only three pieces of lowbie loot, but the real reward was defying the odds and stumbling across a bit of fortune you do not see every day. Sure, a single BoE Blue would have netted my little Orc more coin, but it would never have struck me as exceptional. I certainly would not have taken a screenshot of it.

Also, just in case you were wondering, the Grunt's Bracers of the Bear looked quite fetching on my budding Warrior.
