Redid the first trial with the new update. Still no notch. I don't know if I would have gotten it on a new save file or not. Hopefully the developers will fix this soon.
Same issue. I did the trial twice before the patch, and once after the patch. No notch. I will now try the second trial for the first time to see if I get the ore, will report later.
It really, really sucks if this means my save is bunk now =/
I can't imagine that fixing this would be too hard for the developers to do. Like I said before, they just need a check to see if the player has already obtained the notch and/or ore yet, and if not then have it drop at the end of the trial. In fact, they could probably make things even easier and have the bug you talk to give you any rewards you missed, since the game already knows if you've finished the first two trials or not.
