Gnomes not dropping loot


#1

After MANY hours, I have run into a troll three times. I beat him twice but I didn’t receive anything. My rewards were the standard key and a few gold. Is this normal? It kinda sucks that he doesn’t automatically drop a vault key when defeated.


#2

Gnome not troll. I’ve seen a troll on average about once every 3-4 hours. That’s sucks but ok. What is worse is that even after you beat him there is only a small chance of him dropping a key? That’s crazy.


#3

After reading the forums I believe there is no bug with Gnomes and rewards, however the Developers do need to work on the on screen notification and post battle rewards a bit more. As they are occasionally very unclear.

  1. It could have been a player Gnome. Are you absolutely 100% sure you got the special bag animation when you killed him?
  2. Your reward could have been a matching Minor Traitstone. Did check to confirm a triple Minor was awarded?

#4

I got the graphic both times I beat him. However, there was nothing listed on the reward screen that showed any sort of loot bag.


#5

100% sure it wasn’t a player gnome and saw the special bag animation when I killed him.


#6

But even if you win souls or minor stones, the rewards appear in a gold bag


#7

Yeah there wasn’t a bag at all. Frustrating.


#8

If Souls: Yes.
If you win a Non-MATCH minor Traitstone: yes.
However, If you win a Matching identical,Minor Traitstone…


#9

As you are on console and it’s happening the vast majority of the time for you (66% of the time per your OP). Record a video!!! It ill help the Developers determine what is occurring.

I’ve only found 14 so far so its too small of sample to say one way or another (thus far I’m 14/14)


#10

Did you win the match?

You won’t receive the treasure gnome rewards, even if you kill the gnome, if you ultimately lose the match (unsure if this is intended or a bug).


#11

Found 4 so far. Last one was a spectacular 100 souls. Why even waste my time.
Fwiw I’m rank 190 so I need souls badly but 100 instead of a gem/vault key or diamonds… is just a slap in the face


#12

I don’t understand this mindset. Is it “more worth your time” to wait around and let it run away on purpose? Is your time better spent if it’s a normal enemy worth 1 Soul instead of a gnome worth 100 Souls? Did you somehow lose something by killing that gnome?

I understand that the rewards may not have been what you wanted, but…I mean, that’s how random drops work.


#13

The 30k gold was fine. The 2 gems and then the 5 gems WITH a gem key was awesome. But 100 souls is just a waste. Their so rare its a slap in the face to get such a menial reward.


#14

Anyone know if the difficulty affect the vault key battle rewards?


#15

It won’t affect the special rewards from the gnomes. It will affect the souls and stuff you normally get in any battle.


#16

@Ozball is it true the vault rewards been nerfed also at the same time then the gnome rewards?


#17

A few days ago there were no such things as gnomes, and you’d get 1 Soul for killing something. Today, you randomly got 100 Souls instead. A lower bonus reward than you were hoping for is not a “SLAP IN THE FACE!”.

Come on, dude. I get that you’re less excited by the common / lower rewards, but the snotty attitude isn’t helping your case.


#18

many times ive gotten 3minor stones from a battle and it wasnt in the gold reward border so almost thought i didnt get anything from the gnome


#19

For those who say they don’t receive rewards, did you scroll the bar? Cause if you don’t scroll you might not see the rewards


#20

8 hours of PvP today and not one single gnome.
Please let me tell you how delighted I am.
