I was in the Abyss fighting the Devourer of Souls and after I killed it, I got the message, “You can not loot this corpse”. I was the only person there and I did the spawn from start to finish. I kept trying to loot it until it decayed and disappeared, but always go the same message. The Daemons and Pit Fiends I killed while fighting the Devourer of Souls could be looted. I have done this over 50 times in the past week and never experienced this. I did the next spawn and had no problems looting the Devourer of Souls. Any ideas on what would have caused this?

Usually it's another corpse laying on top of the one you are trying to loot. Can be solved by using a last object macro. It was probably a summoned undead monster corpse in the way that you can't loot.

I've had this occur to me also on occassion. I usually run a screen or so away from the corpse and return and the corpse is usually lootable. I have no idea what causes this.
