Old man Thistle's Map

General Discussion
Supposedly there is suppose to be a treasure that you can only get once you find the Old Map which is a guranteed drop from the Enourmous Cattail in Valley of the Four winds. But I've killed him about 12 times and gotten nothing. I am Best Friends with Fish which is when she tells you about the story. I've read the story and found the cave but you can't get in til you do the quest which you can't do til you find the map. Has anyone gotten this stupid thing to drop? If so how did you do it?
Did you post this in the bug report forum?
Thats the thing, I'm not sure if its a bug or if I am missing something.

It states on Blizzard's own site that it is a guaranteed drop (AKA. 100% chance). That is a bug. Either the website or the game.
You have to be exalted with the Tillers and Best Friends with all of them on the farm. It dropped first time for me when I got the best friends thing. But....it bugged on me when I went to solve it. Fish wouldn't enter the cave with me. So good luck to you! LOL
I thought the shu'halo had more respect for life than to practice necromancy on a thread.
I'm going to go out on a limb and say the OP knows how to get the map since this thread is over a year old. Necroing is bad mmmkay?

Says It's a 10% drop.

My guess is it's a typo, there are quite a few here on the official site.

10% here as well.

Looks around half a year old to me but yeah.
Ha wow, what brought this back from the dead?

Just looked at the date, and feel a lil foolish.
