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

    2 raid lockouts would be nice for casters that want to finish their Dragonwrath.

    The bad news is, the second reset is at 21:00 SUNDAY. That truely mess up alot of guilds' raid schedule.

    Besides, the comment about Koren think 10 man is hardcore is in fact BS. Its just most hardcore guilds are 10men but 10menraid = lolloot, we simply form alliances(literal) for 25men.

    Hi there, Speaking of death prediction, I find it really odd that one of the on-line death prediction services showed me the same death date that I was foretold in my dream about a year ago. yourdeathdate.info/1/index.html - I can’t explain this coincidence in any other way except that there must be some kind of magic involved here.

    The chromatic drake is easily the coolest mount in the game. Got 130 mounts atm, but would trade them all for that one Could be a reward for dragon soul meta or a drop from heroic deathwing, but I thought the Alexstraza-style drake mounts were supposed to be the rewards for those. Doubt it will be a Blizzard Store mount, because they just released the Winged Guardian (and soon releasing the companion pet version), so I don't think so. Plus it's awesomeness will be ruined if everyone and their alts ride it. Could be TCG, but I hope not Could be the reward for 125 mounts (which I think is the Spectral Gryphon/Wind Rider), but I think its more likely to be fore 150 mounts. 125 is too easy (honestly, not that hard, especially once MoP comes out), and will give us something made of distilled awesomeness to work towards, and even with Pandaria, it will be a challenge. Anyway, my bet is on it being the reward for collecting 150 mounts

    Heart of the Aspects sounds an awful lot like an RP concept I came up with for my druid.It was called Flute of the Draconic Oath, and what it did was it would call a different flight's member based on location. It would call a bronze in Kalimdor, a red in the Eastern Kingdoms, green proto in Northrend, and nether drake in Outland. Nothing specified for Deepholm, though, since I didn't have any stone drakes, but you get the picture.Should I just like... work for Blizzard or something?
