Gnomeregan Raid Lockout Update - February 20, 2024

We are aware of an issue that caused some players who became saved to Gnomeregan between 7:00AM PST on Monday, Feb 19th and 7:00AM PST this morning (Tuesday Feb, 20th) to not properly have their raid lockout reset during today’s maintenance as expected.

We are currently investigating this issue and hope to have more information very soon. We greatly appreciate your patience and we apologize for the inconvenience.

Peachdreams: I can’t recall a time in the past where they’ve actually changed from one raid lockout style to another for an instance that’s out and released so yeah I’m not surprised they got an unexpected bug.

This is actually true, we have never in WoW’s history changed a dungeon’s lockout timer like this, so there was a degree of uncertainty on what exactly would happen. Regrettably in our testing we did not encounter the issue we are having today, but are working hard to resolve it.

One thing I did want to also clarify is that even if you had your Gnomeregan raid reset this morning as expected, it is correct behavior for your new Gnomeregan lockout to reset again on the morning of Thursday Feb 22nd, the same day as Blackfathom Deeps.

This is because all raids with a 3 day lockout timer rollover and reset on the same day and always have since 2005. So BFD and Gnomeregan will now always have the same reset days, and these raids will also line up with AQ20 and Zul’gurub later on down the line when those higher level 3 day lockout raids are made available in Season of Discovery.



Hello again,

Wanted to provide an update and let everyone know that we’ve run an operation on our database that should have reset Gnomeregan raid lockouts for those who had been saved yesterday, Feb 21st and incorrectly had their lockouts persist after maintenance this morning.

If you ran Gnomeregan yesterday and are still seeing a raid lockout in your /raidinfo frame today, you may need to log out for several minutes for your raid lock to correctly reset.

Going forward, Gnomeregan will operate on the same reset schedule as Blackfathom Deeps. This means the next reset will occur on Thursday Feb 22nd in North America and Australia, with the following reset for those regions occurring on Sunday Feb 25th, then again on Wednesday Feb 28th, and so on resetting every 3 days going forward.

Thank you for your patience as we worked to resolve this issue, and we apologize for the confusion and inconvenience.
