|The drop rate may be non-existent, but that doesn't tell the whole story!|
Is it still in game?
Prior to Cataclysm, the drop rate of Chan's Imperial Robes was roughly 10% from the rare monster Mith'rethis the Enchanter. These days the drop rate has been reduced to the point that it seems it's no longer on the drop table. This can be explained by the level difference of the mob.
His level was 52 pre-Cataclysm, now it's 33. The robes itself is a ilvl 52 item. Does that mean the item is no longer dropping by him? No.
|Chan's Imperial Robes|
This version of the robe is yellow. There are 2 other colors
available: Lime and Green.
Multiple GMs have confirmed that it's still dropping in Cataclysm.
Undermine Journal also shows that people have been selling these robes.
Because these robes are so rare, I have only one suggestion: If you obtain one, add a few zeros to the buyout price that you were thinking!
Also, check your old alts and their banks. Many have found old items in their bank that are priceless today.
Where to farm it?
Mith'rethis the Enchanter spawns in
A good idea for rare farming is to park an alt next to his spawn point and from time to time, log onto that alt. As he's only level 33, even a lowbie alt is capable of breaking him. Even if you can't find the Chan's Imperial Robes, you still receive a nice chunk of exp and a guaranteed greenie.
Personally I haven't seen him drop the robes. If I were you, I'd farm the Lime version of this item instead. Sure, it's not nearly as valuable, but you may even see it drop!
