Eternity Vault. I feel like playing Beta game right now.
Annihilator respawned after dying, then after 20 seconds died on its own, almost no loot.
Gharj - killed him, no loot - just 1 Willpower mod, 1 schematic, then he respawned again, so we tried to kill him, and we did... but this time no loot, and he respawned yet again after that.

I dont think we should even continue, I dont want to waste my whole evening to test your game. get your crap together...

Nightmare loot is very bugged, do hard modes instead. You have a chance of getting Rakata gear in hards and the gear will drop. On nightmare it may not work at all or will only drop mods and schematics.

Can someone clarify something for me? As far as we can tell, when the loot doesn't bug, it drops the same exact items in the same exact amount. For example, hard mode seems to drop 2 Rakata pieces in 8 man. But when we killed annihilation droid on 8 man nightmare mode, it still only dropped 2 Rakata pieces. Is this the intended design or just buggy?

You got lucky on hardmode.

Hards can drop Columni and Rakata
Nightmare strictly drops Rakata (Well should)

We have had columni drop from nightmare, we have had non-rakata drop from nightmare, but we have also been lucky and have had some encounters not bug at all.

If it is working, you should receive the same amount of loot per-boss in 8 and 16-man, regardless.

8 Man Nightmare most definitely drops the same loot as 8HM. We were getting Exotech gear and Rakata tier pieces from 8HM, and the same from Nightmare. Even the schematics were Columi.

You mean the same quality? Because we get 4 pieces of Rakata gear in 16 man.

Sorry to say, this really is NOT the case. It's not a chance at all. The drops consistently drop the same types of items each week on hard mode. We've done hard mode raids 5 weeks running and keep track of all our loot. The same things drop every single week on 8 man hard for each boss (and in the same quantity). 2 pieces of Rakata and 2 pieces of 136 gear (either Columi or Exotech). You always get 2 pieces of Rakata on hard mode and you always get 2 "welfare" loots.

My question is, why is it the same loot ratios per item level on Nightmare? This has to be either a bug or poor design.

Poor design.
