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

    how long did it take them to decided to take a warlock tier and make it more plate like for DKs? if this is what they came up with after starting over I'd hate to see what they got last time. I might have to get all the warrior tier look alike off pieces for transmog.

    Seriously, Savior of Azeroth would replace Loremaster on my main if my guild actually downs him.

    I guarantee your guild won't make you go to your Ret Paladin.

    I like the DK T13, it could have been much better but it still blows T12/11/10&9 out the water. Its the best thing since T8

    DK tier not bad, but pretty underwhelming considering the wait. Seeing as it took a whole month longer than any other tier set I would've expected something with quality and concept on par with Warrior t13 and Pally pvp. Ah well, it looks aight.

    Saviour of Azeroth is also a pretty lame title. Sif not give us "Worldbreaker" or something... we killed Rag and got Firelord, so why not kill dragon guy and get his title.

    Also,

    Ret Paladin is simmed at 3rd highest DPS out of all specs next patch. Warrior is 13th. If his guild is looking to min/max, they might =p

    Uhm... guess someone never finished ICC. Anyway DK tier I feel is meh... its a little bit of a letdown. Double resets is interesting.... Chromatic Dragon mounts- HOLY CRAP

    Another patch and still no Arms warrior buffs. So I can look forward to another season of not being able to play Rated BGs unless I want to be the flag bitch. Here is hoping the Caster/Rogue/DK bias is left in Cataclysm, so that maybe in MoP I can be viable again enough to play as dps in a 10man rated BG.

    Okay that Chromatic Dragon looks bad ass, you can't say it doesn't!

    I was sad looking at the DK 13. Then I realized they get a built in beard and mustache on their armor. Should be the warrior set imo just cause of that.

Some guilds are going to be pretty upset that they will be pressured to clear the raids twice a week to max out their chances to get loot to keep up with progression.
    Agree with this, while it sounds nice on paper, I think there are too many problems that comes with it at the moment. A lot of guilds right now are based on a 1 week cycle. For example, My guild raids twice a week on the weekend friday/saturday. If they make the reset point on tuesday, then we're pretty screwed, because we would miss a whole reset worth of gear basically. Similarly, it would force many guilds to raid twice as much as they are now.

It might be problematic for casual raiding guilds however, especially if they decide to implement this for new content, so hopefully they will just use it for older content only.

    2.) That chromatic dragon model is pretty damn awesome, about time they switched it up to something new instead of reused.

    3.) Blood DK buff , I guess they took that guy who QQed about them during Blizzcon seriously.
    Yea if they use this 2 resets a week system for old tier content it would be awesome. Hopefully that is the plan.

    The DK T13 looks like Warlock gear. Poor DKs, T9's baby Pallys, T12's accidental rogues, T13's wanna be warlocks.

    The raid lockout boost is clearly aimed at mainland China. They want to synchronize patch 4.3 as best as they can to let the Chinese catch up, then do a true global MoP release.

    lol arms warriors are beast in RBGs what are you talking about? And they are fixing arms charge and shattering throw to make our utility more flexible and not as clunky, a charge fix in it self is a huge buff.

    I'd rather have the original 10/25 lockouts back rather than twice-weekly resets. I hope they scrap the plan. If gear progression is a concern, they could always drop the valor point prices for stuff. >_>

    Bah, who am I kidding? : /
