Correction, you do get loot.
The problem is when you have eleventy billion people trying to loot at the same time. Server lags. Loot window closes. People think they didn't get loot.
Solution: Wait a bit, return to the corpse, attempt to loot, you'll get the loot.
This has happened to both of my toons. The key is hover your cursor over the corpse, if it turns into that little loot bag icon, you have loot on that corpse you can grab.
That doesn't guarantee you'll get the stones. It's a random drop. Sometimes you get 3, sometimes 2, sometimes 1 and sometimes none. Rinse & repeat.
Having said that, it is a bit annoying gating the quest progression on these rares. And no, not everyone can solo these "rare MoP solo mobs". Which are neither rare, (timed spawns), nor soloable, unless you're very overgeared or are a specific class/spec.
Fortunately, the odds of you actually "soloing" these are next to nil since everyone and their pet dog is going to jump on these the moment they pop. Last time I "soloed" Haywire, it had over 50M health.
