Alright, this was an oddity, and I've been unable to duplicate the effect.
I was on my alt-ranger on a local-hosted server with a buddy of mine in on his mage. I had my warrior sitting in town to reset some quests on a second Cube World executable.
The ranger and mage took off to destroy a boss mob (Spitter +2) And after a long fight dropped it fairly easily. Here's where it gets odd.
All THREE characters got XP for the fight, AND all three got unique class-specific loot slotted directly into their inventory. Not drops that were picked up, dropped DIRECTLY INTO THE INVENTORY.
Here's a screengrab from the Warrior (sitting in town half a biome away) perspective.
And then that Unholy Spirit was a drop itself, picked up after the fact.
Any clues? I tried resetting the quest through the innkeeper and doing it again, but to no avail.
Anyone have any idea at all?
