Ooh, I'm going to have to contribute to this thread officially tomorrow when I can get ingame for some screenies.
I'll preface my post by saying that oddly, my luck has been worse with teals I've been trying for rather than gold items (mostly because the golds I want are from instances I don't want to run ad nauseum).
Will edit the post tomorrow with actual data, but my warden is at around 400 combined boss kills of STH/NCF without seeing either teal earring.
Anything else I'd like to say at this point would just be a hunch and I'll refrain from stating those until I can back them up with data.
EDIT TIME! Fist two images are some of my hunter's stats.
Likely not nearly as impressive as some people's numbers for GB, but I was able to buy a Horselord pocket recipe off the AH and gave up running it for the Gold Pocket.
I have yet to even see a teal drop for my hunter in all of those fornost runs, never mind a gold drop :/ Not sure how many of those sch/lib clears are pre-u10 (probably a fair number of them) but haven't received a gold drop.
As for the Annuminas, I've yet to get a teal drop from HV and never got a Relic-Robber's Bracelet from Gling (though I did get the useless gold chest piece at one point). With the release of the wildermore barter stuff I've given up on trying for the Glinghant bracelet and the sch/lib bracelet since what I have is good enough (1 wildermore bracelet, 1 horse lord bracelet).
Here's what really drove my warden nuts, while attempting to go for the teal earring from either 3man:
In all of these runs of STH/NCF, 90% of which were done with 3 agi classes running them and the rest with 1 hunter and a cappy/champ, I did not receive a single teal earring on my warden. However, on that very last NCF run one of the hunters with me did finally win the Earring of Ancient Enmity and gave it to me (yes, that was the first to drop for anyone in those runs). No one in these runs received a gold drop either, though my warden has since gotten 1 gold earring from a t2c OD Disease clear (after 30 total boss kills from various OD wings, with probably an even mixture of t1/t2/t2c)
