Simply not true. EoK rares were dropping first day, talked about in guild and general all week long. TBL they're simply not dropping at anywhere near the same rate. Sure, people use them but they link them in guild and general because they're happy as hell to get one. Something is up. Interesting thing is the zone that dropped the neck item was an instance. I believe the proof you posted on the beta forums was also an instance... So instances only? Mob types like a recent post? I don't know, but something is wrong.
