The emerald nightmare: In Nightmares not getting loot?

This is one the cases where Wowhead's "loot percentage" value can be a little misleading! While both the Deathglare Iris and the Horn of the Nightmare Lord are guaranteed to drop for the players that are currently completing "The Emerald Nightmare: In Nightmares" (with a few limitations that I am going to discuss below), Wowhead's database takes into account all the players that have successfully killed Il'gynoth and Xavius - and not just those who are presently on the quest - resulting in percentages that may be skewed and not fully accurate. On a general level, I would always recommend to take these values with a grain of salt :)

You are absolutely correct, however, when you mention the fact that the quest can only be completed in Normal, Heroic or Mythic difficulty, and these items will not drop in LFR. The reasoning behind this decision has been explained by Ornyx in this post.

There is also another reason why it may not be possible to loot these items: if a player has already killed Il'gynoth or Xavius during the week in any of the three difficulties I mentioned earlier, he or she will not be eligible to receive loot from that boss in that specific difficulty for the rest of the week. Whenever this happens, the player can either wait until the weekly scheduled maintenance and raid reset is performed or attempt to kill the boss in another difficulty.

Lastly, don't forget that all quest items have to be physically looted and, unlike common equipment, will not be recovered by the Postmaster.
