Raid Lock Wipe

Community Manager
In preparation for the new flex lock system we’ll be wiping the following raid locks at the time of the next patch release.

Onyxia's Lair
Naxxramas
Ulduar
Obsidian Sanctum
Eye of Eternity
Vault of Archavon
Trial of the Crusader

This means that if you've extended a lockout for these raids it will be wiped at the time of the next patch. This does not apply to Icecrown Citadel or Ruby Sanctum as they already use the new flex lock system.

A long shot, but I interpreted it as they'd be releasing the patch on a non-Tuesday.

On further thought it could just mean the patch just won't be on a Tuesday
So I'm just repeating the post above me in that sense

It doesn't say the wipe will be tomorrow, just that it will occur at the next patch.

The wipe is a wipe of saved raid ID, for if you would extend a raid from week to week.

um, the patch will be on a tuesday...i think what he means is that you won't be able to extend old locks...all of those will be wiped. Like when 4.0.1 came out.

But why wouldn't he include ICC 10/25 then?
Or any Classic raids for that matter
Edit: or Wrath dungeons, those can be extended too

It doesn't include ICC and RS because they're already using the flex lock system.

It doesn't include any pre-Wrath raids because they don't have 10 and 25 player versions of them.

Good point, but he didn't post that they were being converted

It probably means if you are planning on extending a lock to continue progressing, you won't be able to.

You'll have to start with a fresh instance, which you will probably be able to extend the next week if you want to.

I think they mean if you have one of these raids uncompleted, but still available to be "extended" in your Raid tab, they're going to be wiped so you can't extend them from your last boss kill. You have to start them from sratch again.

I think.

The question would be why would you be interested in extending a lockout of Onyxia's Lair... that particular bit of information seems the most suspect.
