Hardmodes and the mysterious locked Chests!

So.. I've given up on running hardmodes until I see a patch note saying that the loot buggs are fixed. In PvP, I am atleast able to recieve the gear I worked hard for.

I have run multiple hardmodes with maybe only 1 or 2 pieces of actual loot drop due to bugged out chests. This is aggrivating as first I have to pug a group, my friends arent all 50 yet, and then once we get moving through we start runing into lootless bosses yet spending a significant amount of time running these FP's.

Could we get some confirmation on when this is addressed? Or possible how to reset/unlock the chests?

I have submitted many tickets but lately I don't ever get a response.. I have 2 tickets that have been open for almost a week now. I know it's the holidays.. but shesh.

Fail less? I've been able to open them all sans the Boarding Party wipe fest of 2011 Storm Squad. Strategy is in place, just need more practice on execution, quite possibly hardest boss 4 man heroic in game.

Not failing.. only wiped 4 times on boarding party end boss. I'm talking about multiple chests where they wont open even on a one shot one kill.

Almost certain he's just curious when they'll fix the issue.

The point is: you shouldn't be punished for wiping, so long as you eventually complete the instance / boss. You deserve to be rewarded for killing the boss, like everyone else.

They claimed to have fixed it prior, but it still screws up. First boss of Illum, wiped once, bugged chest.

Here's hoping it's a quick fix.

What issue....I haven't run into a single chest that was lock after doing a hard mode boss yet.

Consider yourself lucky I suppose. Been running Hardmodes for a couple weeks now with many locked chests after a kill even without a wipe.

Havent experienced the chest bug myself, but many of my buddies have been telling me about it. I have, however, downed the last boss of Taral V hard mode and had him drop level 33 loot, not even a Tionese Crystal, just level 33 loot. This specifically was said to have been fixed in the last patch, but clearly wasn't. I love this game, just very disappointed in the number of bugs, glitches and exploits that are still in it. With such a long beta, you would think that more of them would have been addressed.

Boarding party last boss bugs if you don't kill the middle guy last and you most likely won't receive chest then.

I do understand your Pain, but you are pugging bosses and some of the HM are not cake walks. Find a group of people and get on vent and I bet more loot will come your way.
