Is it possible to get secrets of the empire running lfr's after you have already completed them?

You can get secrets once per boss per week.

Ie.: If you have done Jin'rokh on LFR, you won't be able to get Secrets from him this week. Neither on LFR, Normal, or Heroic.

But you can keep running LFR until EACH boss drops one. So your maximum would normally be 12 per week.

Can you confirm this? Because I highly doubt it.

Everyone has a personal chance to receive a Secrets of the Empire drop on Normal/Heroic; the quest loot functions the same way that the Raid Finder version of the Legendary quest did prior to 5.2.

We wanted to have a single shared chance per boss per week because we'd prefer to avoid making raiders who are killing bosses on non-Raid Finder runs to feel obligated to do Raid Finder specifically for Legendary quest drops. If those players want to do it for Valor or off-spec gear, that’s great, but doing Raid Finder shouldn’t be necessary for optimal Legendary acquisition.

Other users on Wowhead, also confirmed this:

As noted, you only have a chance at one of these the first time you kill a boss that week on any difficulty. I've made sure to cover every boss on LFR if I didn't down it on normal. So far I've killed 3+6+6+9+9+9 bosses (have to do 3rd wing of LFR this week yet) giving me 42 boss kills. I have 12 secrets, for a personal drop rate of some 28.6%. Comparing myself to similar guildies I seem to be a little ahead on luck, best guess is an actual drop rate around 20-25%. On an average full clear week, you'd expect 2-4.

I think what you are asking is if you run LFR, and you did NOT get a drop for empire, then you can keep running LFR/Normal/Heroic until one does drop.

Answer is no. Once you get credit for the boss kill (rep/VP) that's it for the week. You have to wait until next week. A Boss will not drop anything for the remainder of the week, includes ALL world bosses as well.

Okay, so I have I killed some of the SoO bosses before getting the quest for the secrets, does any one know if I can go back to those bosses and have a chance for them to drop since I didn't have the quest when I killed them?

I think you can. Not sure if it only works for the first part (the sigils of power/wisdom) or if there had been a reset and i just forgot about it but I got sigils of power on my druid when I did the first part on flex after I had done the same part on lfr.

Sadly Lifesprout you can't.  Had a guildy who was in the same situation and didn't get any to drop for him.

 

Pretty sure its been confirmed in a few other places as well (WoWhead etc).

 

You'll just have to wait till next week!  Good luck with the legendary there is still plenty of time to get it!

      It clearly states on the card: "Battlecry: Put one of each Secret from your deck into the battlefield."
       
      Well, I didn't have any secrets out--well, maybe one..? can't remember--but I have multiple secrets.  One of each type.  And it only drew five. 
       
      What's up with that?  Is it a bug, or are they going to change the card to read: "Battlecry: Put up to five Secrets from your deck into the battlefield."???
       
      (Apologies:  Can I just post it there from here, or repost?)
