Worth pointing out that sometimes loot just plain doesn't get put in bags, as well. Morchok is notorious for this, and last night it happened with a pair of shoulders my Hunter won off Beth'tilac - no zoning out, no dropping group, no full bags, nothing. So, it's by no means limited to LFR, either.

I have to confirm this, Morchok in RF never seems to actually auto give loot. I have always had to actually loot the item off of him to the point that I wait until I know if I have won something to even go on my way.

Also, when it's a chest, and someone is currently looting it (like on Madness Deathwing), it won't be looted.

It also doesn't happen when someone is looting a chest (like on Madness).

The issue with the first three bosses of the first half of RF is that there appears to be a maximum distance you can be from the boss for the loot to automatically go into your inventory. This distance is exceeded when you go from the corpse of one boss to the rooms of Yor'Shaj or Zon'ozz, or take a drake up to the top of the Temple.

My guess is someone "looted" the boss but without autoloot enabled, so it would prompt the roll but not the distribute stuff to bags, so if you win the roll you have to manually loot it to get the distribution going on.

My best guess, and it's just a guess, is that it's a client/server issue where someone is interacting with the corpse when the item is being auto-looted so it generates a hidden "that object is busy" error. As for Morchok, he's the only boss you defeat and go past instead of turning around or interacting with an NPC. So it seems likely that more people would click on him.

The problem with this whole situation though, is that in LFR the grp moves on to the next fight before the roll is even finished. If you wait to see if you won and try to get the loot, your "afk" for the next fight and run the risk of the kick brigade. Blizz can do better here, and while they are at it, give my tailor his extra cloth without having to wait on the rest of the group to loot. I hate lagging behind so I can get my loot.

True, 2 times I had to put in a Ticket and have a GM send me RF Loot. One was on Deathwing and the other on one of the Wyrmrest Bosses. It just never dropped into my bags and i could not loot it manually. The GM was very nice both times and sent it to me in the mail instantly.

Morchok is notorious for this because after he died everyone runs to the bottom of one of the 2 pits for the next boss way way way way way out of range for the auto-looting to happen.

This likely happened to me on Hagara as well. Fortunately, Blizzard seemed happy enough to get me my loot after I wrote a ticket.
