Can only loot ONE mob at a time.

In my mac client, I have encountered a very irritating bug. Any time i kill multiple NPCs, I can only loot one, and then all of the other 'sparkles' go away. If I click on one of the others I am told I do not have permission to loot it.

Is there a way to repair the client, a setting I could try, anything? Now that the game has swollen to over 20 GB I can't just re install the client on a whim. This bug is making quests take longer, and making me lose resources (like cloth) when I make multiple kills.

Uhh, in case you haven't heard, Blizzard has done away with single loots per mob. Now, when you kill multiple mobs, you only have to loot one and it will have the combined loot of the other mobs. So yeah, this is the way it's meant to be now, and it's a hell of a lot easier than single-targeting each dead mob to loot like we've been used to for so long.

So this must be the case, unless I'm not understanding correctly.

Oh ok this is a great response. I have indeed been away from wow for almost a year, so I'm not aware of all changes. I assume the behavior I am seeing is consistent with what you are describing. As long as I'm not losing loot, then it's just fine with me.

Thanks! I'd upvote you if I could, but I dont think that's a thing on these forums.

The multi-loot does have a limited range though. Past about 30 yards, it won't pick up corpses to loot from, so if you have a field of scattered corpses that aren't relatively tightly packed, you may still need to loot more than one body on the ground.

I'm having the same issue. I can see that wow has changed it to a mass loot; but I don't think it's working properly. When I go through an instance I'm not picking up ALL the items I know are being dropped; nor the amount of silver/gold.

I've tested to see if it works and if I individually loot each corpse before killing the next mob then I get all the mats I know should drop. But if I kill a mob of 3-4 at once and loot one, I only get a fraction of what I know I should be getting. Can anyone explain this to me?
