A friend asked me to help with a quest to collect Mandrake from Storm Raiders. Once battle began they got upset and told me not to finish off any of the creatures. It is my understanding that whether or not they get a drop or quest completed is not based on who gets the most or how many kills in battle each person has. I don't think it was fair to ask me to come help and then sit on my hands and not participate.
I'm thinking that this is when the remove button comes in handy. Just lose that friend and it no longer is an issue.
If you're in this situation again, you can flee the battle rather than fritter away time on a fight you're not welcome to fully participate in. Any mobs you brought in should go with you. And if they don't, well, your "friend" wanted to kill them all himself anyway, didn't he?
Yes, Gandry and Boochbeard even tell you so. My mom still refuses to believe me that if I grabbed all the chests, she would get just as much, or little, loot as me.
In fact it goes even further than that: if you are in a fight with a specific objective (i.e. defeat Fin Dorsal, Activate 3 Totems) it doesn't matter if you even defeat any other enemies at all, you get the same amount of loot. I just did this with the 3 totems encounter in Skull Cave. Activated all three totems on the same turn and got the same amount of chests I would have gotten if I'd defeated everything on the screen.

Yup, when you win a fight, opponents still on their feet offer you their loot as a token of their submission. And everyone receives the same loot. I like the way Pirate101 handles this better than Wizard101 (because it is always someone else who receives that rare pet drop - never me!).
