Taiwan Realms now get Raid Resets twice a week

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)

    My thoughts exactly.. The last three tiers for DKs have all looked awesome in my opinion (except the helms, but I don't show them anyway), but this one looks kinda plain and not as cool >_>

    Especially since it took them 45 years to make it and they built it up to be real cool.

    whatever, at least it's better than most of the rest of the tier 13 sets lol

    anybody notice the new model for the dragon, imagine it with a chinese dragon skin -_____-

    i want that mount right now, im glad its a new model too. I'm still waiting on a mount of murozond though :P

    WHere can you get that mount? Looks awesome :O

    the mount looks good

    People wanted a new style of mount... they got one that is still a Drake too and it looks awesome!

    I"m guessing thats a TCG mount. Its too early for pandaria things to be in the game files, and that doesn't really fit with our current activity.I suppose its possible that its a mount for a 125 mount achievement. But i wouldn't put anything down on that.

    Hope the chromatic dragon mount isn't just another Raid only mount.. but probably will be :O(

    mount is amazing, a new model skeleton right? epic. dk tier.... quite good, not quite as epic as it could have been, but still, quite good. love the shoulders. love the skull/bone design. if anything, the helm should have less spikes in the jaw/mouth area, i honestly thought the helm had a steel beard for a second. the second and third colors arent nearly as good as the first. if i got a full set, i would def keep it un-transmog'd

    T13 DK looks like a modified T8 Hunter.... wtf?That mount almost makes up for the fail though
  1. HikariOblivion's Avatar
    I'm going to guess the mount is probably the heroic Deathwing drop, where the Glory drake is the Red Drake seen earlier. It seems fitting to end the expansion on a new mount model.

    Not going to lie, I'm a DK and I love my class to death... so to speak but I'm kinda getting sick and tired of every tier set looking the same and it all looks like it came off the wall of Naxxramas. Skulls, skulls more glowing skulls. I wish they'd actually get artistically creative for once. I'd say, "Well thank god for Transmorgrification" but ALL OUR GEAR LOOKS THE FLIPPIN' SAME!

    Is it too much to ask to NOT have horns on every helm!? I'm not a viking, I wasn't a viking before I got rezzed... lose the damn horns.

    The set looks great, and solid. However, it didn't blow my mind.

    Still no mage changes, not surprised.

    @Tusker: I love you

    The Tier 13 is horrible. The helmet reminds me the sand monster in Star Wars... Vagina Dentatta anyone?

    I really hope they do let us raid twice a week. People are getting extremely bored with nothing to do for most of the week these days. Especially with Firelands and now Dragon Soul both being exceptionally short raids. I mean c'mon when Cata came out we got multiple raids with many bosses in each, apart from one which had two. They said they would do this from now on rather than give us just one giant raid like they had been doing with ICC etc. This was a model based off the first tiers of TBC. Then Firelands comes out and they flat out changed their mind and really skimped out big time. They got rid of us having multiple raids with many bosses, but this time they didn't even go back to the one raid only but having it be large design. Now we get one raid and it's medium sized. Some thought it was just for Firelands and now we see it's like that as well with Dragon Soul. I don't understand why they changed their mind on having many raids per patch with few bosses in each and decided upon one raid with a handful of bosses like this. So yeah this is a huge reason why we need raid lockouts to be cut in half. Those who don't wish to raid the extra time don't have to. Those of us who would love to raid twice a week shouldn't be punished by the people who don't wish to raid longer. Oh also that new drake is indeed amazing looking. Too bad I can't say the same for the DK tier set. Looks like the new warrior PVP set in a way. Uglyyyyyy at least imo.
