So I died, released, noticed I didn't any loot (he was killed when I was running back). I then found this. The quest showed completed for me however, I tried killing him again just in case. Didn't release when I died again and got loot that time. So hope may not be lost if you did release the 1st time!
That doesn't work. If you redo it you don't get the reward.
He isnt the first world quest boss that had this issue. Whenever I die at a boss and I know I won't be back in time. I always stay dead. Missed quite a few loot drops due to that. Cause when you die and release, it removes the tag you had on the boss. So you'll have to retag it.
Put in a ticket when this affected me a couple hours ago. Just received this response:"Greetings, Thank you for contacting us with regard to not receiving loot from Nathanos Blightcaller when releasing after he was defeated. We are experiencing a high volume of tickets right now and apologize for being unable to discuss the issue further with you. We can confirm this was not intended and our developers have worked to hotfix this error. At this time, any affected character will be able to kill Nathanos once more to receive loot even if they are a ghost at the time he is defeated."EDIT: Just relogged into my char who didn't get loot, and I can confirm that the WQ is back.
**** IF YOU DIED DURING THE FIGHT READ THIS IF YOU DID NOT GET LOOT ****People keep saying "oh the quest is completed for me though" NOT that quest!The world quest is NOT the same as the quest to kill him that the person in stormwind gave you!The story quest will be completed, the world quest will NOT be completedJust kill nathanos again to complete that quest and receive your weapon
I died and released as did a bunch of other people. On the way back Nathanos went down and the cinematic played. He respawned in the time it took the cinematic to play. I got nothing and based on colorful comments from others nearby, neither did anybody else who died. Quite disappointing.
Happened to me on my Warlock alt today. Running back as a ghost I was about to res and the WQ completed - no loot.Killed him 2 more times on the same alt, no loot. Submitted a ticket.
I did a GM ticket when I had this happen and they said that they made it so people who missed loot the first time could kill him again for another chance. When I got back to him the world quest marker popped up again (it had vanished after the first time) and I got my weapon. :)
killing him again did not allow loot
Does anyone know the music that plays inside Nathanos' house?
hope we can loot Tyrande weapon... this looks fcking awesome
what if you got the wrong loot for your loot spec.... for example i'm a ret paladin and got a 1handed intellect weapon
before you ask... yes, i had it on ret loot spec
I guess if you DW you only get one weapon?
This has always been the case with World Quest bosses. You don't get credit for the WQ, or loot from the boss, if you are dead or running back. Never release at 30% health or less. For Nathanos, 40% with a full group because the fight ends at 10% health.
