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 love the chromatic dragon mount but it looks like the wings are going backward. Also, it looks like it has a new mount skeleton, and watching its body as it flies, I suspect that we may be getting "eastern" style dragons as mounts in MoP.

    "Always"? Since when do non-EU/US servers ever get anything first?

    about damn time they released the DK tier. Not exactly what i was hoping for...but its still one of the better looking sets that we have. I hope they release the blue and purple though...the red doesn't quite sit right with me. they should have rendered a green instead imo. that way the people hoping for a "diseased based" set can have something to cheer about. but then again...they have green gear in the heroic tier 12.the dragon mount...finally a new model that doesn't resemble everything else or a reskinning of a model *cough* the mount off rag *cough*...*cough* reskinned proto-drake *cough*it would be nice if they reduced the lockout timer for the home servers first. i wouldn't mind getting some of my alts into the raids twice a week.

    The Chromatic dragon mount looks sickly to me. It also looks to be in pain. I'm not sure I like the chinese dragon look theyre trying to go for here.

    The mount will probably be the model used for mainstream dragon mount in panadaria yay

    OP legendary daggers!

    They are not going through with two lockouts per week. It only makes you bored faster. You can farm twice as fast, yay.
    They should work on quality instead of crap like this if they want people to keep playing. People want fun not faster progression. Just like leveling, making it faster doesn't make it more fun. When you are having fun the longer it takes the better.
    When you progress twice as fast then you will have twice as much time when you have nothing to do or are just bored.

    Besides that it will screw up guildschedules. It will force people to raid more or to skip on this option (extending your lockout) and maybe this leads to leaving your guild and possibly drama.
    Why change this when guilds are set for one lockout a week for seven years long? SEVEN YEARS.

    But who cares, as long as solo players/pugs are happy. Next expansion everyone is queueing for raids, joining random people from different realms and steamroll through content and doing it over and over again, guilds will be removed from the game and there will only be 15 man raids. All very convenient, accessible and casual but far less fun.

    Oh and when I saw the dragon I was astounded then I remembered ''If its too shiny its for the blizz store'' lol 25$ for this mount lol.(its a guess)
  1. Rosreniadhya's Avatar
    I can't decide if the mount looks absolutely awesome or somewhat silly. Perhaps it's somewhere in the middle?Although, I'm not a fan of yellow personally...

    Thank heavens I don't play my Deathknight anymore, can't say I like it... Looks okish though.And lol@ all the people saying "OMG IT R NOT DEATHKNIGHT AT ALL" It has skulls, there... Most Deathknight tiers had a skull or bone theme...I guess this just proves once again, people whine about -everything-

    @Dubbz Because Blizzard hates Non healing shamans... it's obvious..

    Now give me that mount!

    It's unlikely removed in the next expansion so even if you don't end up getting him down now you can still come back and get the title later.

    i guess that mount is the base for the future Asian based Dragons we gonna see in MoP, thin and curvy

    Anyone but me that thinks that the Deathknight t13 shoulders looks like the paladin t12 shoulders?
  1. Phaidrae's Avatar
    Hahahahahaha...Poor DKs...had to wait this long for THAT piece of crap? It's so boring and unimaginative...just like most of the gear Blizzard makes anymore. I really don't know wtf is so special about that - that it took them so long to put it out. Another epic gear failure. Thank goodness for transmog - if I was a DK I wouldn't wanna sport that garbage. The mount is pretty sweet looking tho! I'm not a fan of gold usually but...it's so shiny!

    DK tier isn't bad, at least not the purple-green skin.The chest and leg textures look like they should be on cloth armor though.
