I had joined a party to kill the Hard Gollux. One of my team mate pick up the coin that drop from the Head, however other teammates can't receive the coin, only the one who pick up the coin have the coin on his ETC. Me and my other teammate killed the Gollux for nothing.

    This is not a bug, not all boss drops are instanced. Some, in particular certain rare equip drops from end-game bosses (Magic Eyepatch from Hard Damien, Dreamy Belt from Hard Lucid), are only obtained by the user who picks the item up (shared loot).

    This is why it's important to turn off pets and coordinate with your party when running certain bosses.

    That's equips you're talking about though.
    Coins and other ETCs are usually instanced or half-instanced. Has Nexon itself confirmed that this is intended behavior for Gollux?

    Coins used ot be shared regardless of who picked them up. So if there were four players, all four would get 25-35 coins from Lvl 4 Gollux
    There were also 5 coins given to all alive players when the head was defeated
    The patch notes did not mention any change to those mechanics so it's no clear whether it's intentional or not

    Gollux coins were never shared equally EVER.
    Before the revamp, the person that pick up the Gollux coin get all of the coins while the rest of the party get only 1.
    It is the only reason why complete strangers never want to party up (when everyone has equal dps) for Gollux because you have to trust each other to take turn looting the coin everyday.

    Is it confirmed that this is how it's meant to work now?

    I know superior has been end-game for a long time now. But most characters used to be able to farm there way (for months) to get the ear rings and ring. Now killing Hardux is the same as killing the old hellux, and the new hellux is achievable for mid-game/end-game players.

    If we can't get even the one coin from being in a party, nexon has made it near impossible for new players to get the equips.

    Mind you, i'm not complaining for myself, I'm able to kill the new hellux quite easily. It's the new players, or the existing players that want to SF their equipment. They can't even get reinforced gear now. Let a lone superior.
