Why can't I loot anything?

  1. I can't loot any corpses. The bag icon and their name is gray, and I can't loot anything.

  2. The body is sparkling, No one else hit it, It's been working fine. The icon for looting just stopped lighting up for some reason. I've killed maybe 10 ( same ones I've been killing and looting before.) and I couldn't loot any of them.

  1. this happens as a glitch sometimes. it happens to me sometimes. Blizz told me to log out completely then log back in. It fixes it every time. Unfortunately, you will most likely not be able to log back in in-time to loot those corpses.

  1. It depends.
    1. You need a double-click laptop/mouse.
    2. Is someone hitting the enemy before you? If they are, you gain no XP and no loot.
    If the body is sparkling, no one's hit it other than you, and you're right clicking the corpse, then call Blizzard.

  2. Which version of Wow are you playing? The asian version has besides the rested and normal also a tired and an exausted status of your character.
    When you are exausted you can't loot any items and don't gain xp anymore.

  3. This actually happened to me a while ago. I started to freak out, but then I logged out and then back in and everything was back to normal. Like MephistoVI said, you may not be able to log back in to get the loot on those corpses, but I was fortunate and didn't have that problem.

  4. If the icon never lights up no matter how close you get, it is likely that your client and the server are out of sync: your client thinks the corpse is in one place, but the server things its in another. Exiting the client and logging back in should fix this problem.

  5. <i>I can't loot any corpses. The bag icon and their name is gray, and I can't loot anything.</i>

    Based on this statement someone else has tagged the mob. If the mob's name in their nameplate is gray then they've been tapped by another player. Therefore, you can't loot what is not your kill.

    However, if the bag icon shows up and is gray then you aren't close enough to the mob to loot it.

  6. If it's gray it means not your kill or wasn't close enough to loot it in time.
