Raid Lock Wipe

Best Guess: This means that your current expired/in progress raid lockout will be obliterated. You will have to start each instance from scratch. It'll be like Tuesday, except you won't be able to extend last week's lockout either.

Second Guess: Punch & Pie
4.0.3a tomorrow? Please Mr. Nice Cool Awesome <GM> Guy. Let us experience the wrath of Cataclysm.
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.


Everybody knows there's no reason to extend a Onyxia's Lair lock, but on the management side of things, it's all the same whether it's a raid instance with one boss or ten.

But the message isn't only about extending locks. Extension is one thing, 10v25 is another. After the change, you will be able to kill Onyxia once a week. 10 or 25, not both.
Crap, this is no bueno. We better hurry up and kill Yogg + 1 ....I don't wanna clear that place again QQ
How is a raid lock wipe going to affect Onyxia's Lair and Eye of Eternity though?
Explain.
Oh noes.. if it comes out tomorrow.. not good.. still need 8 more Elementium Ingots for my Scepter of the Shifting Sands chain and there are none on the AH >.<
If it's the patch, I guess Wrath of the Deathchin is upon us.

While I agree, it's silly to extend an Ony lockout, it's included because it will have the 10 - 25 shared system that ICC and RS have now. So if you kill Ony 10, you won't be able to do 25 that week.

So, this means the next update will remove all Wrath raid lockouts you have or could extend except RS and ICC and all will now have the 10-25 shared system. So like my guild trying to kill Yogg 10... we best get him soon or else have to reclear (not a biggie, we need to do that anyway for some achieves).
This is so cryptic. I predict patch on Monday cause they want to work out the kinks before Thanksgiving and Tuesday is real close to Thursday.
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 only means that the patch is coming before a tuesday. Why would they reset the instances when they auto reset on tuesdays anyways patch or not. So this is another big HINT.
This is the least useful blue post I've ever seen. Why couldn't you just say what that actually means?
Most of the pre events have been starting on Mondays.
Very nice.
Bashiok, do you mean that you will use the flexible raid lockout on the raids that you mentioned?
Another blue post would be helpful. I don't get who'd want to keep/extend a locked VoA, Onyxia, EoE.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that is what he meant.
Clarification?
