as far as incentives for 25man raiding go, i think the new guild achievement/talent trees/(heirloom gear?) will benefit 25man raiding over 10man. More details are required for this but i think they will be good enough to reward 25s sufficiently. i think the major disparity that blizzard is trying to resolve is the ilvl differences due to just how much of an incentive they are. i know plenty of ppl that have left the 10man atomosphere that they enjoyed just to do 25mans for the gear.there has been alot of discussions about 'the epicness' of the encounter and that is some of the motivation of doing 25mans. Fine, whatever works for you, and you can group with 24 other people that enjoy raiding with those large groups too. You should be rejoicing because you wont have sour ppl among u that are only there for the ilvls.overall, there should be several ppl rejoicing for the change of 10s and 25s dropping the same loot. 25man raiders that enjoy the atomosphere, 10man raiders that enjoy that atomosphere, and ppl whose computers completely fail and are unable to do 25s at >2 fps that are screwed outta phat lewts because of it (me xD).Sharing lockouts is a double edged sword. My guess is they are intending to siginificantly lower the amount of pugging. Again, this plays into the guild-related rewards. Still, more details are required, but sharing lockouts should be enough forcing to encourage raiding with your own guild. Sadly, this does cut out on how much u can do on one character per week, but hopefully proffesions/path of titans/pvp will be sufficient to spend some free time on wow and still enjoy a life away from the computer go go death of 25man guilds that barely can stand the ppl they raid with but still stay for those 13 ilvls ;P
