Taiwan Realms now get Raid Resets twice a week

The new raid lockout changes for Taiwan and Korea adjust the lockout timers for the patch 4.0 and 4.2 raids. The lockout timers for these raids will now reset twice weekly instead of once. These raid lockout changes are being made to allow players to raid more often and get more chances at epic loot drops. Players will be able to down current Cataclysm raid bosses twice a week, accelerating players’ progression.

We are testing these new raid lockout changes in Taiwan and Korea first. Our goal is to expand this change to other regions in the future, but we don’t have anything further to announce at this time with regard to North American implementation.

Yep. Seriously. Like, seriously dude. This is a Model Viewer render, I will update those screenshots if necessary when I fixed my tools and give you a render closer to the one you could get in-game. (But those might be just fine)



New Models - Chromatic Dragon and Chromatic Dragon Mount

    I'm pretty sure beacon of light is just a tool-tip change. It's just being specific on which ones Beacon of Light actually uses.

    Uhm, no? They announced they were buffing Blood DK's for next content to make them less prone to one hit KO's at least a month or more ago when discussing tank changes. Correlation is not a sign of causation; these were already a long time coming. =S

    As for skulls on DK tier, something different? Like, fluffy kittens or something unrelated to the death in death knights? ;D

    Chromatic dragon mount is straight up epic! Also loving the look of DK t13.

    That mount is SEXY. Holy shit. People sitting on that are going to be gods. The DK tier on the other hand....not worth the wait, I wish they would show us the supposed crap they originally had. Can't be much worse.

    That dragon looks fucking bad ass. I never thought I'd replace my Invincible but that dragon is a worthy contender.

    Awesome mount, now lets hear someone complain about another dragon mount, though I do enjoy the unarmored version the throne looks sweet.

Firelands creatures/architecture, tiers that look similar to something in a zone, etc. Death Knights are above that. Every tier they get something that goes with their class and stands apart from those other non-Hero classes. t11 - more skulls (did you see those skulls anywhere in cata?). t12 - you can see the architecture of a frost wyrm, with their wings on the helm. So i'm glad they are continuing the trend. (finally a purple/green set that really goes with the scourge WCIII theme)
    This makes me want to facepalm so hard. HERO CLASS MEANS NOTHING. It only means they start out at a higher level, they are not stronger, better, cooler, entitled to anything special, and definitely don't get "cooler" tier sets. Are people that stupid that they believe hero class means anything? It was a marketing ploy to build hype around the release of the death knight class. Nothing more.

    Newsflash: You got a title for beating normal mode Lich King too. It IS the final boss for the expansion. But hey, guess what? You get an even BETTER and more PRESTIGIOUS title for heroic! Go get it!

    yea, given how awesome the other classes were, the dk is a bit underwhelming. damn the warriors for getting their wicked plate...

    Summons and dismisses the Heart of the Aspects. This mount changes depending on your Riding skill and location.
    Doesn't it only say that on Store-bought and TGC mounts?

    Heart of the Aspects is most likely the Chomatic Drake mount.

    Well lets see your best try at it so we can judge you that harshly. Oh and while you are at it come up with hundreds of thousands of pieces of unique art and make everyone on these forums happy with them all.

    You all realize that raid bi-weekly reset is not for current tier, right?

    So it doesn't matter, it's just to help gear up to be able to raid current tier and probably make the iLvl requirement of the raid finder tool.
