World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Raid Changes

Currently on the World of Warcraft raiding scene, you can hit up a 10 man and 25 man raid in the same week, and you're probably very well aware that there's a big difference in the item quality (and difficulty!) in these raids. Enter Cataclysm, with some cataclysmic raid changes!

wow what a "great" news!!

Bad coverage, the guys that wrote this pretty much says, OMG 10 and 25 man will have the same rewards!?! crazy!?! Its like he didnt even read the post on the official wow forums.

bad article, bad coverage.

So yeah, you will get the same rewards in both the 10 and 25 man raids. However, you will also get better rewards if you put the raid in heroic mode, much like dungeons, and that also works in 10 and 25 man.

All in all I think this is great news.

i don't see the point of 25 mans if you can get the same stuff from 10 mans, heroic or not.

Montrealien2885d ago

I may be wrong, but I think that`s the idea, to kill 25 man raids. Some fights are much harder in 10 man imho, OS3D for example.

for my little guild, this is great news, I won`thave to whore myself out to larger guilds just to get a shot at better gear and it will encourage tighter knit groups, which is good imho.

Will prob have more items drop at any given time in 25 man. Greater chance of having your item drop that way.

wollie2885d ago

i guess i could see if you can get the same loot, but just more drops in 25 mans. like 2 or 3 items for 10 man, and 6-8 for 25 mans. but who would pick doing the 25 mans? Its so much easier to organize a 10 man, no one will do 25 mans if this is the case.

Myze2885d ago

The most obvious reason people would do both 10 and 25man is because of raid lockout. You can do two runs a week rather than one. Also, as said, the amount of drops is likely to be about double for 25man.
