"...one random gone wrong could lock you out for a week..."This is changing (supposedly) in Cataclysm. Instead of having a full raid lockout, you just have boss lockouts, and you can join any raid that's as far (or farther) than your current lockout.It'll be great for linear raids, though I'm a little concerned about non-linear raids - say you downed the first ICC wing and Dreamwalker, but most people save Dreamwalker for after Blood and Plague - you're just out of luck, now.But you would still get to do Sindy and the LK, so... Win some, lose some?"I cannot wait to see what trailer they pull out for Cataclysm."My prediction, based both on what's happening, and what they did with the "changes" trailer last Blizzcon, is that we'll see a cinematic of Deathwing's triumphant return. Peace, tranquility, various races going about their day... Then a subtle tremor. People pause, look around. Did they imagine that? But it grows, and increases... Things fall over, rocks tumble, somebody gets smushed. And then, into the air, and across the land and water, to a bird's eye view of the mountains... KABOOM! Deathwing, rising triumphant and slow-motion from a conflagration of stone and fire, fury and glee burning in his eyes, and ZWOOSH at the camera... CATACLYSM.
