"Fear Itself" quest (legendary quest)

Moo.

People have been reporting that the 2nd legendary questline "Fear Itself" is behaving pretty awkwardly.

Players who have gathered 10 powers of sigil and 10 powers of wisdom need to complete this to get their Sha touched gem.

They need to obtain the 'Chimera of Fear' which drops from the Sha of Fear in the Terrace of Endless Springs.

It seems to only drop one Chimera, that goes to the first person who loots the corpse eligible for the quest, bypassing any loot distribution method. (Master/Group etc).

- Let us master loot it or such. Someone 'accidentally' looting can lead to huge issues.

- Could you make it drop more than one per kill? Or at the very least drop 3 per 25man raid.

In the current incarnation we're forced to break up our 25man raid into 10's to get more sha touched gems.

Another question, will it drop from LFR? And if so does this mean we need to rush to loot it in LFR to be the first? Does this mean we will need to run everyone individually through their own LFR Terrace in order to get them their gem?

Please fix/clarify how this is supposed to work.

Thanks!

You would think that after the 10th time they put in an item of this type that the exact same bugs that make them not follow Loot Rules like being Master Lootable or Rollable would stop happening.

Nah.

It's either a bug or a really F'd up social experiment.

Seems like quite the advantage for 10man guilds if the Sha of Fear drops only one Chimera of Fear on both 10 and 25. Another strike against 25man raiding?

If it does drop in LFR, get ready for the LOL's of people scrambling to the boss' corpse and all the rages and QQ's that follow.

Please don't kill 25 man raiding! 25 man guilds are harder to find now a days, don't give another reason for them to fall apart!

Will probably drop off the LFR version of Sha of Fear even if you are already saved for loot...

Which if true, means guilds will be running LFR 25+ times to get one for everyone in their raid.

If it's obtained in LFR wouldn't it just automatically go in your bags if you won it, much like the sigils of power?

I'm okay with one each kill, but that number seems awful for 25 man guilds. Should be 2-3 per 25 man kill, much like they did for Heroic Madness mounts.

Calm your horses, there is literally no way that this is intended.

Should be a thread on Bug Report about this. If not, feel free to make one.

Oh, this happened to me with some quest for the scepter. Someone came to help me kill Ony to get the item, and lo and behold they had the quest in their log and the item was assigned to them. They swore up and down they did not loot the item, but it was assigned to them by the game. So I had to wait until next week.

Please pay attention blizzard, this is going to be an issue of major contention. It -already- is. We're just hoping you'll fix it to at least work with Loot Master.

heres the solution (id like to see)

if you've cleared terrace on normal/heroic, this quest is credited as "complete", and you can get your gem.

I dont see why a 25 should have to wait half a year to get a gem for everyone, that just seems silly.


Do it in LFR next week and have it appear in your bag problem solved.

Just an update on this: had one drop for each of the 2 people who had the quest tonight in 10man, so it appears to have been hotfixed--I'd assume to drop for everyone, but may just be multiples per now or something.
