    Purple rain, purple rain, follow me my friends as i lead you to the desert. Follow me to the mountains! When you arrive look to the heavens, for it is from up high that the purple rains....

    DO NOT USE THIS METHOD TO AFK MACRO FARM THIS SPOT, YOU WILL BE REPORTED, IT IS VERY OBVIOUS, PEOPLE WILL REPORT YOU ITS A QUEST AREA.

    It all started back in 7.3.5 blizzard introduced scaled zones and dungeons. Allowing for items to scale to your level when you were out questing, killing dungeon bosses, and world loot. Well it only takes one to wonder what kinds of rares and epics are on the loot table out in the world. It was then that the dream started to formulate. What if we could get these items scaled to our level??.... but how... epic drops are well epic. Definatly not common, and everyone who ever asked how to get the epics.... you gotta kill monsters and you gotta kills thousands.

    To do this we must find ways to use the game to our benefit. That doesnt mean you need to go out on a solo killing mission. I do know people who have gotten lucky farming for hours solo to get a drop, but thats just not consistent enough for a real grind.

    So friends and i started running around the world killing mobs to see how the scaling system worked, we killed mobs in every zone. What we found in 7.3.5 is that uncommons, rares, and epics always scaled to the appropriate level in silithus. It didn't take long to find the twilight base camp.
    [​IMG]

    At this point we found monks farming mog items. So we just turned this method into a scaled epic farm method for 39s.
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    This is where i was originally finding all of my scaled epics. What was really awesome is during our testing and vetting out the loot table we found that all of the boe items from MC, BWL, & AQ had been added to this loot table. Teebus, skullflame shield, etc. Once pre-patch released Twilight geolords and avengers are no longer dying instantly. For whatever reason they are able to take damage from high level characters and not insta die, only other mobs in classic zones that are like this is the un'goro devilsaur. This is a bug and honestly everyone should file a bug report on Twilight geolord and Twilight Avengers to get them fixed.

    We spent weeks in silithus farming and farming, there were a few methods i found to farm there, i would go in more detail but honestly the grind there is very slow and it already was taking a hour or so to get 1 epic to drop, now it takes about 3 - 5 times longer.

    Once pre-patch hit everything changed. silithus is no longer always scaling to your level. This seems to be the new standard. or a bug was intruduced and blizzard has yet to fix it.

    But no worries cause we found another spot!! So knock that dust off, and lets get going.

    [​IMG]

    At the Blackrock stronghold you will find 3 big packs of mobs. a bit to the east of the small mountain is a 4th pack of mobs. All 4 packs of mobs need to be killed at the same time to cause these mobs to insta respawn. It takes 2 brewmaster monks at the 3 pack spawn. the 3rd monk sits to the side killing the 4th pack solo (but in the group). Now the 2 brewmaster monks at the 3 pack spawn should be set as follows.
    [​IMG]

    So if you are like me you run multiple accounts. I just have to be able to get what i want, when i want it. But at the same time its too much trouble alt-tabbing to each window to keep rushing jade wind going. prior to pre-patch you could just use chi-orbit. so use this

    http://www.hotkeynet.com/

    Load this script, or copy and make your own text file.

    To start you need to have scroll lock on

    ctrl+alt+L

    turn scroll lock off

    log into your accounts

    turn scroll lock on

    ctrl+R twice

    ctrl+T

    now when you press any keys 1-0 should cause all clients to do the same

    push ~ + right click to loot on all clients.

    I'd like to thank those of you who have known all the work that i have done over the past few months and kept things to a minimum on the leaks. I'd also like to say that i had a lot of friends on my list who always saw me out farming in silithus, never did any of these people show up to spy on me, investigate me, even tho they knew what i was doing they respected my privacy and allowed me the time to vet out what was going on with the loot table. Its just unfortunate that blizzard broke those mobs but maybe later they will be fixed.

    Good luck making it rain my friends. ~Sun

    actually it's not hard at all, you just kill groups of mobs over and over with a high level. that may be the easiest thing to do in this game. it's a matter of finding mobs that scale appropriately, so pretty simple trial and error for zones that typically have/had ~high 50s/60 mobs.

    regardless, you pretty much "filled your bank up with shit", then released this method. that was obviously your plan the entire time. you're on a video game and acting like you're sequencing the genome. try being less of a beta fish.

    Feel free to express your opinion on whether you think something is easy , hard, what have you. But there is no need for being disrespectful. This guide has been in the works for weeks, It wasn't released till now cause certain things were not fully vetted or understood. Also a new method was just realized just a few days ago and I havnt had a computer to use for almost 4 days.

    great post but i would like to point out that using hotkeynet and autoooping it could get u banned. The rule is that 1 click on keyboard must represent 1 click on other active wow clients. if have a macro on autloop u put your account at risk. Just a heads up

    Have you noticed that x5 x0 bracket BoE rares are higher ilvl than other rares? e.g. a 35 rare BoE is ilvl 43, but a level 38 rare BoE is also ilvl 43 (+5)).

    Weird stuff. Especially for levels like 50, 10 and 20 this is good, for 39 it matters a lot less.

    This guy getting butt hurt people were spying on him? Let me just farm a bank full of epics then release this info to the Rusks of twink info and see if this is an intended feature or not.

    If it is great, if it isn't greater cus i have my bank full already

    @Sun Great guide man! I was one of the ones that knew what you were up to, but at your request kept it on the DL. I don't see what all the hate is for, seeing as you couldn't have known that the prepatch would change things. And there is still plenty of information here for people to benefit from. As they say, teach a man to fish and he will complain that he had to work to eat for the rest of his life...

    Only if Apollonia clicks it at the same time as you!

    At any rate, it takes lots and lots of farming(and time) to loot epics due to their low drop rate. Time I simply don’t have. I tend to just purchase them off the AH. I would rather pay someone in gold to farm items up for me. Been slowly collecting them since they became available actually. Most aren’t all that much better than their ‘rare’ counterparts to be honest.
    Great guide for people that enjoy farming for items.
    That is truly the beauty of WoW. It really is multi-faceted.
    Like to farm up items? Do it...
    Don’t like to farm? Purchase items from people that love farming. Win win...

    All armor world drops since 7.3.5 drop at x0 or x5 and scale at lower levels (+8). Old drops are still at (+5) and drops from chests dont scale and have their original level and (+5) ilvl.

    I'm finding that items with a suffix is not scaled to my level, but all uncommons that are 39 or below also have no suffix right now when dropped.
