Sorry if this has been asked before recently, but I've been finding a lot of conflicting/inconclusive answers around the 'net and in-game...
Basically, what I am wondering is simply this: Can an epic greater essence e.g. a searing flamesource, drop into your rift loot bag upon completing a GHR, but not as the one with rights to the chest? I know this can happen in SH62's, but I ask because GHR groups seem more prevalent, and also as it seems a little more difficult and perhaps even unfair to run my own "reserve" group as I cannot tank.
Would also be curious to know if it's possible that they can drop in GH1/2. Again, I've read reports of it occurring however it is trivial for me to solo a GH2 with a pet build, so I have my doubts here.
EDIT: I'm a Mage, hence why I noted that I cannot actually tank the planarchs.
