I'm working on my skirmish meta deed completion, and have had to run several of the skirms dozens of times to finish them up. Methedras was one of them. My question is, does anyone know why neither the lieutenants nor the final chest award bounties? To my knowledge, it's the only skirm where this is the case. It could be just a bug they haven't fixed yet, but if so, they haven't addressed it in any patch notes/list of fixes that I've seen. It also could be WAI, but for the life of me couldn't figure out why this would be the case. If I'm going to run it repeatedly, I'd at least like to be able to grind some coin out at the same time.
That was a bug. The skirmish failed to drop any rewards other than the silver from the chest when playing below level 75. It worked fine in raids and at level 75 but not in non-raids below 75. I bugged this right before 7.1 came out, so I am not surprised that a fix didn't make it into 7.1.
I ran the skirmish below level when the latest update (7.2) was released. The loot drops appear to be working now. Note that this skirmish is unuual in that both the boss and the chest drop rewards. Since the boss will escape if you allow the drummers to die, I presume this is a bonus for protecting the drummers.
