Lol Mandilorian Raiders chest bugged for me the first time too.

Got a group and we wiped 3 times trying to figure out the correct order to kill the Imperials. On the 4th try, we succeded.

Chest was bugged. Glowed, yet wouldn't respond and open.
Haven't rerun it since. lol.

I honestly believe that it only happens when you try to do stupid stuff like kiting the boss away too far, or have people try to run away when it's a wipe.

We used to get the chest bugs quite often when we took down the hard modes the first times. Best ever was when not a single boss in BP dropped any loot.

However today when we cleared all hard modes not a single chest bugged, even if we died on 3 of the encounters. Even Revan gave us the chest and completed instance reward that people said has been totally broken.

I dunno, we just had it happen to us on Boarding Party and all three champions died near the chest, we didn't do anything crazy like try to kite one of them out of the room either. On the other hand, last week we were able to kite the last boss of Cademimu clear out of the missile room and halfway down the hall but still got the loot (yes, I agree this is an exploit that needs to be fixed. we just wanted to see if we could do it, I know the missile room isn't hard if your group has half a brain). The difference is the Cademimu boss doesn't unlock a chest.

I am willing to bet that players trying to run away from a wipe probably has something to do with it though. As, IIRC, both times I've been present for a bugged chest, we had a player try to run away and break aggro during a wipe.

My friends and I probably bug reported this... 20 times over entire course of beta.

Our first hard mode kill in black talon. Bam. no chest.

our jaws all dropped.

Unbelievable.

Had this happen to us a couple times on the Boarding Party bosses of the Mandolorian Raiders Flashpoint on normal.

First time we wiped a couple times and didn't get it, but the second time we went in we did it flawlessly and still no chest. This is a pretty big bug and hope it gets squashed soon.

Wonder if this bug is also related to Heroics?

We wiped good on a 4-man HC yesterday http://www.swtor-spy.com/quests/hero...ing-debts/879/ (we where only 2 so it was expected) anyhow, the 1st step listed which actually is the last step in the quest as it is furthest in, couldnt be completed.

Your supposed to click on a generator of sorts, but it wasnt targettable.

The loot chest was also locked after Velasu Graege & Drinda-Zel kill in Battle for Ilum Hard mode (tank and healer died if that matters ;p)

Almost a month since launch and its getting time to renew our subs. Don't you think this may need fixing?

2nd boss, battle of ilum, whichever is the first one with the chest, same problem, unlootable chest.

Didn't matter anyway, all loot dropped was for classes we didn't have
