Townlong Steppes - The Torches

Bug Report
On the quest "The Torches" in Townlong Steppes, the Mist-Shaman Torch objects are despawning before the Mist-Shaman are killed (most of the time). Extremely difficult to complete this quest. After killing about 6 Mist-Shaman, I have only been able to collect 1 torch.
i had this same issue while completing the quest. if they stun you just before they die you dont have enough time to get the torch

I am having the same problem with this quest, but there are also times where I am able to kill the Mist-Shaman and reach the torch, which shows up sparkley, but will not let me "pull" it. After a few seconds, it will then disappear.
I'm having the same problem as Reikisoul. The torches don't despawn too soon, it just doesn't let me pull them even though it looks like I should be able to.
I found this suggestion on Thottbot that seemed to work...

If you make sure that you have at least 1 empty bag space in your bags (regardless of whether you've pulled a torch already and have a stack) then it resolved the problem for me. So if your bags are full and you've pulled one torch already, you need at least one extra empty bag space in order to pull more.

I ran into a similar problem with cooking, I wasn't able to make something even though I already had some in my bag because I didn't also have an extra bag space.

It looks like there's a general inventory bug here.
Jimsasham, TY! That was the issue! Nice to see you again. ;)
