So that green fire book...

Warlock
Came back from a little break. Looked at forums first like I always do. Saw everyone complaining about farming that item for the green fire quest in the Isle of Thunder. So I go there, not really expecting anything, started doing dailies. See a rare mob. I'm like "Why not?", laughing at this point. Kill it. Loot the item.

First ever rare kill. First time setting foot in this thunder place. How lucky did I get?
I got it on kill number 2. Didnt even know what it was. I had to look it up.
How random, huh? Was expecting that to be much more of a headache.
I got mine on like my 20th rare spawn. Since then though I've gotten a couple and sold them for around 5k a piece.

They are all over the auction house now though, at least on my server. Very cheap now too.
I wouldn't be surprised if Blizzard has been (or has at least once) stealth buffing the drop rate.

Blizzard always said they want green fire to become more common as time went on, so it wouldn't be surprising.
It took me well over 100 kills. Id say you're pretty darn lucky.

This..

and I think I was in the teens in kills before mine dropped for me.. I've never been back to the island since it dropped lol.. sold it for 60ish and bought one I think last week for 15.. they're still going for a decent amount on Tich but on other servers I've seen them much lower
I figured they upped the drop rate too. After the storm of posts about how hard it is to get, I find it a little out of whack that I'd get it first kill. Plus reports of <20 kills now.
The drop rate is increasing over time, so I wouldn't be surprised if it has gone up once or even twice since patch release. I can't remember what number I got mine on, but it was under 10. That was a week ago.
I bought mine on the AH for 2k...about 100 rare kills in and still haven't see squadoosh.
Been farming for 3 weeks now, 4 hours a day, 5 days a week, and I have only seen it once on the AH at 40K.
Got it on my first kill. With the number of rare kills you'll get it'll come soon.
