just so you know, people who are mind trapped at the end of soa can receive loot. you just have to have them come down and rez them, brez if they're in combat. they can receive loot. this happens to us almost every time we kill him.
Yes, I was in the mindtrap at the end of our Soa HM kill tonight, exit area'd, ran back, fell to my death, got rez'ed and was able to loot, even after loot started going out.
