As has already been discussed, the main issue was the paying Shard(s) and getting an empty chest. The reroll-counting-towards-ransack was kinduva collateral issue that rode in along with the main issue. And to a much lesser degree, being allowed to pay to reroll an empty chest at all.
Since you can only reroll a chest once, it really doesn't matter to me whether it adds to Ransack or not - as long as everyone knows which way is WAI. What *I* think should happen, is deactivating the reroll option as soon as a chest reaches ransack warning. But that's just me.
As for reimbursing the few Shards I used - thanks for the thoughts guys, but seeing that my effort actually made something happen within the big hamster wheel behind the curtain is cool enough for me.
This bug is akin to stepping into a quest then stepping out and resetting before completion of the quest counting as a completion for purposes of XP and daily bonus. It really is a pretty bad bug and ought to be fixed post-haste. I wasn't even aware of it until I saw this thread.
I believe that haverdasher should be the comparison as the other chest in the miller's debt 100% on a specific quest item and not subject to ransack.
On two separate occasions, once by myself by accident and a friend deliberately found that confirmation box did not appear upon clicking the Re-Roll button.
It was the first time I had accidentally done so, and was kicking myself for doing so but more angry at yet another simple UI thing is broken.
I don't know if it applies only to ransack, but it may also apply to empty chests.
I joined a Heroic Elite Servants really late once, and rerolled on an empty chest because I wanted a chance at the Slinger. It took my shards and came up empty.
Bug report got me nowhere.
