We received several feedbacks regarding raid instance lockouts and 10/25 rewards, and we appreciate your opinions and deep interests. We thought that Korean players wish to enjoy the most hardcore contents more flexibly and according to their play styles. Therefore, from the upcoming patch we decided to change the raid instance lockout rules for all KR servers. Raids, as usual, will be reset every 7 days following maintainance checks. However, after 5.1 patch 10 man and 25 man raids will have seperate lockouts.
From now on, players could play raid instances, such as Mogu-Shan Vaults, in both 10 man and 25 man difficulty. Normal and Heroic difficulty raid of same instance will share same lockout as usual. Furthermore, the loots of 25 man raids has been buffed, and will offer higher iLV compared to same 10 man instance. For example, Terrace of the Endless Spring in 25 man difficulty will drop loots with iLV of 504, wile 10 man will drop 496.
We wish that players will further enjoy the contents and gain satisfactory rewards, and decided to offer the system that suits most well with the KR players.
I honestly dont know what to think of this. Perhaps it will eventually come back to US/EU too? Althought I doubt it because of the phrase "We thought that Korean players wish to enjoy the most hardcore contents more flexibly and according to their play styles."
Interesting, but I doubt this is coming to US/EU servers. The last time they did something special for KR we never saw it (they got 2 lockouts per week on Firelands and Dragon Soul - it reset on 2 different days instead of 1).
