Mythic X-Realm lockout Mechanic?

Dungeons, Raids and Scenarios
Hi all,

So quick question - how does the Mythic X-Realm Lockout Mechanic work?

Will it work like the current mythic lockout mechanic where you get saved to an ID and can't do anything else unless it's with that same group?

Or will it work like heroic where you can do the boss again you just won't get any loot?

It would seem weird to make it locked when we are releasing mythic xrealm with a month left until next patch (and however long until next raid.)
The same type of ID lock will apply.
All Mythic Raids in the game (Mythic SoO through Mythic Uldir) have the same type of instance ID lockout.
I don't understand the lingo used with the above answers.

Is it like heroic/normal or not?
The Sticky Thread discusses it in detail:

https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/15271089594

Copy / Paste from the thread:

Strict Instance-based Lockout
Used for: All classic raids (Molten Core through Sunwell), Heroic difficulty of Wrath of the Lich King raids through Throne of Thunder, and all Mythic difficulty raids.

Progress is tied to a fixed instance ID. Once tied to an instance ID, you may not enter any other versions of that raid of that difficulty until your raid lock resets.
If other players complete that instance while you are absent, the instance will be empty for you as well, because progress is tied to the instance, and not your character.
You may not switch between 10-player and 25-player raid size once locked to one size or the other (does not apply to Mythic which is 20-player only).

I know right! Its election night! Aren't you all excited! LOL
Makes no sense to not switch it to normal/heroic loot style
so we can pug but if people leave after taloc, that's it, shows over.
(not literally, but why not give us x-realm and boss by boss loot)

Cross realm mythic is implemented to help mythic guilds.

It is not supposed to LFR the content.

Join a guild or take your risks on a pug.

People like you have ruined WoW, bring on classic.

Then you don’t need mythic raiding.

Go do pet battles and heroic raiding or play with your kids or another game.

Every little part of this mmorpg isn’t supposed to be accessible if you play less than 10 hours a week or if you’re terrible at positioning / dps.

As a side note I’ve got several raiders doing mythic and playing under 20 hours a week. Everyone in my group is an adult with a job and some combination of wife / kids / girlfriend / hobbies / overtime / whatever.

Just because it makes no sense to you doesn't mean it doesn't make sense. If you had looked over one of the other 1000 threads on this topic over the years before posting here you might already know why it makes perfect sense.

Outside of the guilds pushing World First, that’s not a requirement to joining a raiding guild. There are plenty of Mythic raiding guilds out there that only raid 6-8 hours a week. If you can find the time to pug a Mythic raid, you can set aside that time for a guild’s raiding schedule.

And if not, then maybe Mythic raiding isn’t for you.

We are 5/8M (with zul pretty much guaranteed to die tonight)...we raid 6 hours per week (disclaimer, we add an extra day for the first four weeks to get heroic clears in).

We also raid 6 hours a week and 4/8 with Fetid almost dead.
