I am thinking that maybe somebody around me has a full bag and so his loots goes to me? Just running around Camps while I was trying to look my way around, I kept getting random loots and I'm not sure why and where it's coming from? Does anyone else getting these? I will be walking around an area and next thing I know I get 4 shards etc.. etc... and I didnt do a thing. Any thoughts.

When you're fighting solo, the drops you get go into the loot pool, regardless of if you're in a party or not. Likely you're seeing the message you get when the items in the loot pool finally fall into your actual inventory.

I have had this happen as well. Looking at loot drop lists and what I kill, combined with the battle/chat log I think I have a good answer. When you kill a mob, sometimes you will get the skill/exp for said kill, but no loot. Walk around, go to an area with less lag or even more people and the server hickups a little. You will see your loot come.
Example: I killed a marmot based animal, went to one of the main cities and then it said I received Marmot meat +1, and a few crystals. This took me about 5 minutes to get to town and load, I knew where it came from because that was my last kill.

Why would it goes to a loot pool? that would be really awful since I had been trying to kill this certain mob that drops a certain item I need and I hate for that to go into a pool.......you know what I mean? I never heard of loot pool before...is this really true?

When an enemy drops an item, it goes to your loot pool. If you are in a group, the items get split between the each player's loot pools. Eventually items in your loot pool move to your inventory. You can actually go into your loot pool (/loot) and immediately take the items, OR you could give them to others. I assume this would have benefits in mid-late game, if enemies start dropping untradable items, you can still give it to the party member who needs it before it becomes untradable in your inventory.

sigh. its your own loot pool. no one else can get any opf the items unless you invite them. they just take awhile to drop into your inv, to give you time to clear space if u need to.

come on guys.
