    Hello. Since patch 8.1.5, I heard you can get epic (purple) gear from quests at any level. I've had two characters do a lot of quests from levels 10 to 20, stopping experience gain there because I want to unsub and keep playing pvp in level 20 bgs. So far, there has been 0 upgrades (not even to blue gear). I was wondering, is the chance extremely low, or is there any requirement to be able to upgrade gear? Is the only way to get epic gear through quests and through rare-mob killing?
    I'd apprecieate a guide, or some instrucitons on how to obtain this epic gear, as I've seen players with it, even multiple pieces, while I've been killing myself and so far not getting any.

    I put Warmode on as it says on the tooltip on the Talents page boosts quest rewards by 20%..so why not, also i happen to find more rare mobs that way. Ive had about 10 items upgrade in 3 zones, 3 epic.

    Thank you very much, sir. I will try that. Too bad I already finished several quests. :(

    Im not saying it counts towards the upgrades mind you. Roll an allied race and try your luck. You can also faction change.

    I don't know if it's related. But I turned warmode on, and the next item I got were epic gloves out of a quest. RNG sure is a bitch

    I averaged about 1 epic upgrade every two full zones and 1-2 rare upgrades per zone.

    Its a small chance, but its nice when it happens.

    Yeah, feels pretty nice when it happens, but it's still a low chance. How many zones can we quest at lvl 20? I don't feel there's that many.

    Just think of all the race zones + 1, Bloodmyst isle seems really nice for alliance.

    I ran quests pretty much all weekend on my 20. Cleared all these zones completely with about 30 rarespawn kills total. Westfall, Duskwood, Redridge, Elwyn, Ashenvale, Stonetalon Mt., every dung quest, and half of Wetlands.

    ~12 blue upgrades, 5 epic upgrades from qursts.
    0 upgrades from any rarespawn kill.

    I did hit the 250+ quest complete about 3/4 of the way through.

    Lets be real, most mongoloids dont know how to follow quest chains properly on wowhead. When it comes to zones like bloodmyst that have 100 aids quests for no reason sure, a player who has the patience and actually looks will surely not do all 100. But as you said, mongoloids.

    Archivists staff and... shit, is it sunweavers? From that chain in Ghostlands? Both quest reward staffs. And then Discontinuers Hammer is a solid 1hand option.

    And Riverpaw mystic staff is farmable.

    Worth noting all of these are worse that foamspittle. But not by much (like three less vers)

    Oh I thought you meant specifically weapon wise.

    Druid wise, they're all quest rewards. But that's all I know without getting home and playing with wowhead filters

    Filter by item type and see if a specific mob is the source.

    edit- sorry, I used wowdb for that, might not work on wowhead.

    nope... that didn't work either. Meybe I was checking quests. LOL sorry. I mean you can find out which are looted, and then see their source. Kinda works like you want.
