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

    Why meh? You don't even know which version this is, it could be the LFR version. The normal and heroic versions might have much better colours.

    DK tier is better than 9/10/11/12, even if it is underwhelming for the time it took them to roll it out.
  1. Kurosendo's Avatar
    (paraphrasing) "Yea, we know DK tier 13 is taking a while, but its gonna look awesome."

    Llllllliiieeessssss.................. Definitely gonna trasmong it.

    I love DK t13. Easly my fav right now, until I find something about it that really bothers me.

    The dragon mount looks great. I just hope we will have the option to get the unarmored one pictured.

    I never liked Firelord being slapped on female characters. There needs to be a female version.

    for as long as people had to wait for t13, I am underwhelmed tbh. Where does one get that chromatic drake? I'd assume the Dragon Soul raid.
  1. Haakkon's Avatar
    Really disappointed in the DK T13. For something that's a second version it really doesn't seem like it. It looks really uninspired and generic.
  1. Seref's Avatar
    Please oh please let the Chromatic Dragon be a reward for a new tier of the Mount Achievements :P

    And that DK tier 13, immensely underwhelming for all the suspense... >_<

    I'm pretty sure at the moment Beacon applies to Holy Radiance and Protector of Innocent self heal too.

    Edit: actually not sure about HR..

    From EJ:

    Currently Protector of the Innocent, Enlightened Judgments, and Light of Dawn all transfer to the beacon, adding extra value to those talents, in addition to the normal casted heals. Seal of Insight heals are currently transferring to the beacon.

    That mount, god damn. I assume it will be a Raid mount, which disappoints me, because it looks bloody awesome. It almost seems to fit in with MoP more than the current expansion, though.. Also, 'Heart of the Aspects' and 'Soul of the Aspects' mount and pet? Interesting..

    Mount: The mount looks amazing. The neck and body animations are a very nice touch.

    Armor: Oh look, my face again. Really? Would it be too much to ask for Blizz to cover our faces once in a while like War T12. Sure there was DK T11, but that still had a face on it... would it be too much to ask for something like this:


    The rest of the armor looks good, and it's nice to see BP getting buffed, but man... that helmet...

    Did we really wait this long to get the worst looking dk set ever... And skulls again....
