Ranged Weapon RNG - Incoming Rant

Yeah, yeah I know it's only pixels and my pain over losing out on an epic weapon week after week is small potatoes compared to real human suffering. But now that we've gotten that out of the way...

A hunter friend of mine runs Terrace of Endless Spring first time last night and whispers me to show off his new Taoren, the Soul Burner. This is after he's gotten Fang Kung, Spark of Titans twice. Another hunter friend gets Fang Kung, Spark of Titans first time running Moshu'gan Vaults.

Me? I've got this really cool Houndmaster's Compound Crossbow that I obviously must not want to replace because I've been running LFR since the xpac but have never seen the bow or the gun drop. I save my Elder Charms for the bosses who drop weapons but all I ever get is another 28 gold.

Fortunately Blizzard foresaw this might be an issue so they provided an epic crafted weapon for those of us who can't seem to catch a break in LFR. Oh wait, they didn't provide an epic crafted weapon.

Sigh. My guild is very casual now so I am dependent on LFR for my weapon. It's getting to the point where I don't even want to run LFR anymore because I get seriously bummed when another week goes by with nothing to show for my efforts. I want to at least feel I have a chance, but at this point it feels hopeless and pointless instead of fun and exciting.

I got the Taoren, the Soul Burner on my first run through. Finally got a trinket last time. Seems like I went a few weeks of zero drops then I started getting a few lucky rolls. RNG sucks !@#... Not much you can do about it.

I stopped raiding on my hunter, but i've seen normal Fang Kung and Gaoren drop several times on my main's raid team.

We have no hunter.

I've gotten the Yaungol Slayer's Gloves off the sha a total of four times now, I miss being able to hand them off to another raid member but such is life in a random world.

G'Luck

Dude, it took me 7 months to get my ranged weapon in ICC and 5 months to get my bow off of DW. I feel you :(

Welcome to my world. During Cata, on my alt (also a hunter), I ran Madness 13 times, never had the bow drop once. I gave up and stopped playing that hunter.

Oh, and yeah, I'm sporting a nice blue bow myself. I'm not expecting an epic anytime soon.

Thought I'd drop by and update you all on my progress. After running this week's LFR I'm still sporting this awesome Houndmaster's Compound Crossbow.

Now excuse me while I go cry in the corner; fellow hunters cursed by the LFR RNG Gods are welcome to join me in my misery.
