As with everything related to drops, nobody knows what the chances should actually be. It's all educated guesses and speculation. Wowhead isn't reliable for that matter either. I agree with Eronox about the above.

Isn't the uncertainty even more reason to use some kind of hack fix? Keep in mind that with ZA release these Scroll Cases will be easily available from trash mobs to anyone, anyway, so it's really only a matter of time.

As for the armory, I really don't know how it works. https://truewow.org/armory/item.php?item=22903&realm=p shows only very few mobs, in dungeons only, and the list is certainly not capped.
Then I look at https://truewow.org/armory/npc.php?id=21047&realm=p and the recipe is listed here, but these ogres are not listed in the list of the recipe. So I really don't know what to think or what to farm.

Also, before anyone says it, yes I am farming these mobs but there are only like 5 of them in the game and they respawn to slowly too grind them continously.

It's because of referenced loot templates https://trinitycore.atlassian.net/wiki/ ... t_template

It drops from a loot table that is shared among a group of creatures.

Absolutely in favor of the OP's suggestion. We have a couple hundred people playing on this server, not millions. Giving key recipes a 0.01-0.05% drop rate on random elite/dungeon mobs is the functional equivalent to removing them from the server entirely.

Recently more people have been having problems with unavailability of recipes, namely the Spellstrike Recipes:
https://truewow.org/armory/item.php?item=24309
https://truewow.org/armory/item.php?item=24312
1.4% drop chance off a boss that you can only do once a day, that has to be a mistake right?
I am sure that most people already know this, but when you look at a database like wowhead then most of the data is coming from end users who have their mods installed to gather data.
1000 Players kill one boss, out of those 14 get that item. But that is not taking into account the fact that you have to be a tailor to even see that item, so the chance can't be accurate and actually has to be much higher.

The longer we wait, the less value we're going to get out of the work that is put into such a custom change. Especially because Zul'Aman will be coming out soon after BT (hopefully) and these Scroll Cases will be introduced and solo farmable either way. But by that time people will have already out-geared starter gear like this or given up.

Judging by the sole fact that this is still pending after 4 months of inactivity I am assuming that this is still being considered.
If that is not the case then might aswell close this

Sorry for the delay, this suggestion is suppose to be getting done by me, but due to the recent hyjal release and other changes. I have not had time to Implent it, I will try my best to make some time for it soon.

+1 this sounds like a nice way to boost rdf/rhc activity in addition to making the rarer recipes more available.
