I am not sure if this was happening throughout the whole game but early this morning, around 3 central three of us were farming Friar Sand and we kept getting skipped. There would be plenty of time on the timer but it would suddenly start the battle sequence as if we had all passed. Sometimes it would just be me and sometimes two of us would get skipped and twice we all three got skipped. We played for about 25 thousand in gold drops, we never did get any gear drops, then we just gave up and went back to the test realm.

his loot table also seems to have been swept off a bit ......

This wasn't a misfire of the new inactivity timer/ auto pass was it? You didn't get the "Stay or Flee" question?

In regards to the gear drops, I had noticed that he wasn't giving anything too. It is still a good fight for money but I'm sure he used to give items.

No we were in the live game at the time. No timers there, yet

Yes he sure did use to. I outfitted all my pirates with great stuff from farming him, but now I hardly see any drops. Has this been adjusted back or was he dropping too much in error and was fixed?

Once when I battled him, the ice didn't appear.

Yea that has happened to me a few times too. Kinda puts an interesting spin on his claim to be unbeatable over water lol.
