In update note 1.2.5 it stated in flashpoints you must clear all enemies in the instance to get loot from the boss. Everytime i do a hard mode people are saying you do not need to kill all mobs. Somebody able to clear this up for me? It does say it in the update notes after all.

I skip a lot of the mobs and I still get loot from bosses

It means enemies within the encounter, not the instance. For example Gharj in EV, if you still have adds up, you have to kill them before you can loot etc.

Apparently it was done to stop some exploit on certain bosses where you could kill the the main, loot him, and the wipe again some adds causing the boss fight to reset.

Ah right that makes sense. Wish it made it that clear on the update notes

Iirc, it says all enemies in an encounter. Encounter =/= instance.
