    Elementium Ingot drops bugged?

    I was in BWL earlier farming some transmogging stuff and we got a couple of Elementium Ingots dropping as usual. I won one and a friend of mine won the other. Neither got them in their bags though so we went back to find the body and loot. No such luck, they didn't exist at all. Odd we both thought but kept on going.

    Afterwards I made a GM ticket about it, hoping to get it that way and this is the answer that I got:


    I have never heard about that before so that is why I ask you guys, is this GM right or did he just go with a quick excuse so he wouldn't have to do anything?
    As far as I know every technician in BWL has a chance to drop an ingot.

    It's always been like this.

    Yes this is intentional. See it like this, if they didn't have it like so then you could wait for soft reset to farm the goblins indefinetly. There are around 62 goblins normally in the instance which is why they set that number. If you did it from a new save then yes, it is a bug.

    I got all the ingots I needed in 2 weeks of doing BWL. 5 the first week, 5 the second week. It's not like it's *that* inconvenient, it just means you can't make a legendary in one week, which is probably as it should be.

    No, this was the first and only run. Waiting for my friend to make his ticket and see if that helps. It's only an ingot so it's no big deal, just curious.

    My two friends and I, run this every week for transmog gear as well. The past 3 runs have given us 6 ingots, 2 of which never made it into my bags, and it's happened twice. When I opened a ticket I told them about it, and they've sent me any ingots that were'nt rewarded, so you may have just gotten a lazy GM haha. I also included a screenshot of the winning roll, but it wasn't followed by the "Madriel recieves Elementium Ingot", idk if that helped my cause or not though.

    This happens to me every week. I 2-man the zone with a pally friend. Every single time, I've had my ingots granted to me by opening a GM ticket and telling them that I rolled on the item, but it did not appear in my bags after I won. Brand new instance. (Setting the loot on free-for-all will eliminate the issue.)

    By the way. It is not even possible to soft reset and continue farming these goblins. Once you kill them, they're gone for good. So the GM was probably feeding you a complete line of BS. I've had this bug happen within the first ~40 goblins killed in the zone.

    Yeah that happened to me before (too many times to count) and reported the issue. Got the ingots restored, but still not fixed.

    The ingots are bugged for me in a different way. I've run it on two toons every week for the past 7 weeks and none have dropped ;-;

    Try getting them now, on my server at least the bindings are currently dropping every other run. In one week, we got two Eye of Sulfuras, four bindings, three glaives and one Thori'dal. And it has continued, legendaries drop like mad right now.

    This has nothing to do with the thread?

    I do not see how that has to do with anything but it's good that you inform people of this so those who does not know about it will.

    This happens to me occasionally, Every time I've contacted a GM they've given it to me, Although I've had completely useless GM's aplenty in the past... make another ticket, and hope for a new GM

    Assuming he was posting this about trying to build the legendary to transmog.. instead of just BWL gear.

    I shall die here. Every inch of me shall perish. Every inch, but one. An inch. It is small and it is fragile and it is the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.
