The shard chest in ToS does not work correctly.  

Unlike all other shard chests, which pop an accept box on the screen of all group members and yeilds a shard when clicked, it instead puts a message in narrative chat text saying all members have gotten a shard and a share of the 6 plat.  There is no accept box on anybody's screen, and attempts to loot the chest again then get the message "but you have no key".

However,  no shard is placed in the currency slot or inventory bag of any group member.  All do get the plat share.

I believe it has worked incorrectly since inception, but did not notice it until this week when a guildy was carefully counting down to get his Ry Gorr pants, and it failed.    We verified it 2 days later when 6 of us all counted accurately before and after, and got no shards.   

Petitioning will not get the shard, as the GM reply will be the chat message said you got one, so you must have.   End of petition.

One time this happened to us too but last 3 runs we had no problems ,it  seems to be only  sometimes buggy.

Update:

Revisisted the chest today with 5 other guildies.   Got key, clicked chest, got text message about how we got shard and plat, but check of all inventories indicates NO shard again.

This chest has never worked like other chests, where each player gets a confirm window.   None of  us really have any evidence of getting any shard here, ever, as leader just clicked, we heard the ca-ching, saw the text, and ran on.    Once a guildy who was waiting on the last one for a gear update got burned, we started watching.  So far, no shard, ever, despite the message.

Since then the count is 0 for 18.   Fairly reliable fail, I'd say.
