    To my understanding (which is limited as I have not farmed these myself) you have to farm whatever world mobs drop boe epics on a level 39 character. If you manage to get one to drop it should be req lvl 37-39 and ilvl 50-52.

    Hopefully we can get some sort of confirmation here WITH screenshots

    I do not have proof of this because, when it happened, I didn't screenshot it. Anyways I was doing the silithus farm on my 39 pally and got an http://us.battle.net/wow/en/item/3075 [item=3075]. The eye of flame scaled to a lvl req of 37 and an ilvl of 50. Obviously this is not bis but I was able to confirm for myself and Coole that it is possible to farm these. If you want further confirmation since I don't have a screenshot, then I would ask Coole cuz I linked it to him and he bought it from me. However, this scaling does not always go right for us as sometimes, even though we are killing mobs at 39 that scale to 39-41 for us, the lvl req of the epics is not always usable for us even if we get it to drop for our 39s. For example, I farmed with Coole one time and he got an epic bow to drop on his 39 but the lvl req was 43.... so I think, based on our findings, that the lvl req for the epics can sometimes varie or be totally random.

    Honestly though, best places based on experience, research and just what I have seen drop based on the time spent farming are the silithus farm, burning steppes farm, RFD, Strat undead side, dire maul and certain mobs in eastern plaguelands. Best I've seen outta these is some guy got 3 epics to drop in alittle over an hour farming the silithus xmog farm. If you don't know the silithus or burning steppes farms, here are links: He won't talk about epics scaling but its just to show u the location and how the farm works and how u can kill so many mobs per hour which increases ur chance at epics. Also, look up the loot table of the mobs shown in the videos. ( P.S. srry bout the links to the videos....I tried fixing twice but I think they are messed up. If they are just go to youtube and search: WoW studen albatroz silithus farm and WoW studen albatroz burning steppes farm. )

    So I've been farming the Fields of Honor on and off on my 39 paladin for a while. Today my first epic drops! ... It's the bow, 'Hurricane' and it required level 43, ilvl 56. Sad times... So there's a number of possibilities. (The same has happened with a number of Rare drops too.)

    1) It's random whether the item scales to 37 for armor/38 for weapons or not. Some times it will, some times it will not.

    2) If the item is not equippable it won't scale.

    3) You need to kill mobs in zones where you can quest for epics to scale.

    4) Blizz are trolling me.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    I've spent quite a few more hours farming in the Fields of Honor, seems like the scaling of some Blue items is off, which means they are no good for a 39. I've a simular method as previously, 101 Mage and a 39 Twink looting. Looks like that zone specific drops scale at best to minimum level of the zone, in this case 40, World Drops scale down to level 37, had 1 Epic and 1 Blue scale as I hoped.

    Screenie of the last 4 Blues I was able to loot on a 39:

    The chance of getting an Epic for your spec on a 39 seems very slim if you are planning to do this with just 1 39 in the group, I assume that 1 high level and 2 or 3 39's would be more likely to give the correct armor drop. Again I havent been able to prove the theory, unless someone is willing to group on a EU 39 for an hour or twos farm?

    What point are you making?

    Using a high level toon grouped with a low level is the most efficient way to drop the mobs in the Fields of Honor. Unless there's something I'm missing ?

    If those items were looted by the 101 Mage then they would have had a required level of 60 and an item level of 66 or 68 depending on the scaling.
