Summarize your bug Legendary mob at end of non-quest instance doesn't drop loot. It might have something to do with me not getting any legendaries drops at all today. They drop masterwork, epic, and rares just fine. But I suspect legendary item drops are bugged, so the legendary mob just drops literally nothing except the usual recovery items when it's supposed to be giving a legendary item.
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Just kill any mob that drops a legendary item. Legendary mobs at the end of instances give a 100% drop chance of an item.
What happens when the bug occurs? Killing mobs with guaranteed drops either drop nothing or less than what they should. But it doesn't always happen. It drops stuff upto masterwork just fine. But I suspect the legendary loot is missing for some reason, so it just drops nothing if it's supposed to be a legendary in there. I've seen it happen 2-3x in one freeplay session. With someone there and solo. I've even seen a Luminary just drop 1 item. It's supposed to drop 2, always.
What should be happening instead? The legendary mob should at least drop an item. It's supposed to have a guaranteed drop rate.

I'm pretty sure legendary item drops just disappeared from my game. Legendary mobs  from the end of a non-quest instance are supposed to always drop an item. Even the open world Luminary is supposed to drop 2 items, not just 1. It doesn't happen always, so it has to be a missing legendary drop. I've gotten masterworks and lower in the same run just fine. The legendary items poofing into the nether is the only explanation.
