    If you move while looting rare treasures, can you still loot them again?

    Accidently turned character, window and item disappeared.

    After a couple days, im not seeing anymore sparkles, and been camping.... is it possible to loot them again?

    No, it's not. Happened to me when looting the item next to the Mantid rare mob in Kun-Lai. It never respawned to this day for that char.

    Yes, it's possible if you're lucky enough to find the item again. Don't see why it wouldn't be.
    Look! Words!

    When the loot window pops up you are flagged for the associated quest id of that item. It's very likely that this would bar people from seeing the item again even if they did not loot the item.

    Unfortunately not, I saw the rare spear in Krasarang Wilds, from the fisherman panda, had a full inventory, the treasure despawned (I had the achievement), and I can't get that one anymore.

    If you don't know, maybe you shouldn't pretend you do Once you loot a rare treasure, your char gets flagged and you cannot see it anymore.

    I've looted some rares more than once, so no.

    This is about looting clickable objects, not looting rare mobs.

    Obviously. I have looted the 1h str mace in Townlong multiple times on the same character. Also have gotten 2 agi daggers from Dread Wastes. The "flag" in question here actually seems to be related to achievements that count how many rares you've found, it doesn't bar your character from seeing it if you've already found it...unless of course my characters are just magic and I can see them, which could be.

    Then you're either full of shit or are currently bugged as no one else has been able to loot multiples of the rare items.

    looted the Sturdy Yaungol Spear twice on my hunter once on my DK and once on my druid, so I don't see them being locked out. also told a few people in the guild when it has been there and a few of them have picked it up a few times as well.

    it's all just luck you may never see that item again I know I've been looking for that damn pick axe since launch.

    On the same character, no you cannot loot again (you can't even see them). On a different character, yes you can loot again.

    I have Relic Hunter, i've tested this on 3 characters. I've read there is a FLAG bug though which breaks this rule. Refer to wowhead comments.

    With another lvl 85+ char you can. Maybe even with a low lvl char if you can find someone to escort you.

    Rares are unique per toon, once you get it for the achieve, you NEVER see it again on that toon. Open a ticket, they will give you the item.
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    I bet someone from Blizzard does, maybe you should try them since they made the game.

    It works like this: Whenever you open a treasure item the game marks your character (or account?) to permanently phase it out for you. However if you contact a GM they can see this mark and will likely give you the item.
