Info popped up on the TW WoW site, starts the 27th?
http://tw.battle.net/wow/zh/blog/440238/%E5%9C%98%E9%9A%8A%E5%89%AF%E6%9C%AC%E9%80%B2%E5%BA%A6%E9%87%8D%E7%BD%AE%E6%94%B9%E5%8B%95_%E2%80%93_10%E6%9C%8827%E6%97%A5-2011-10-26#blog
Google translate will help.

10月27日的伺服器維修時,我們將會套用針對4.0和4.2團隊副本進度重置的修改,將目前7天進行一次的進度重置,改成一週重置兩次。每週第一次進度重置將會在週四上午09:00,第二次進度重置將會在週日晚上09:00。

這項改動不會影響勇氣點數。勇氣點數的上限依然會在週四重置,擊殺首領所獲得的勇氣點數還是和以前一樣。這項針對團隊副本進度重置的改動將不會套用在4.3更新中的巨龍之魂團隊副本。截至目前為止,死亡之翼團隊副本僅會於週四重置。

這項改動是為了讓有意願進行團隊副本的玩家們,有更多機會獲得裝備。儘管勇氣點數不會受到影響,這項改動仍然能讓團隊們每週擊殺兩次團隊副本首領,獲得兩倍的裝備,加快團隊成長。在巫妖王之怒資料片中,有參與10人與25人團隊副本的玩家們,應該對這個改變方法感到相當熟悉。而想要保持當前進度或是延後進度重置的玩家們,你依然可以利用團隊頁面中的「延後團隊進度」功能達到這個目的。

如果你擔心會忘記新的團隊副本進度重置時間,從10月27日起,在你遊戲中的行事曆將會顯示每週進度重置的時間。

我們將樂於聽到你們對於這項改動的回應,也希望這項改動能給予想和公會成員進行多次團隊副本的玩家更多的動力。

The new raid lockout changes for Taiwan and Korea adjust the lockout timers for the patch 4.0 and 4.2 raids. The lockout timers for these raids will now reset twice weekly instead of once. These raid lockout changes are being made to allow players to raid more often and get more chances at epic loot drops. Players will be able to down current Cataclysm raid bosses twice a week, accelerating players’ progression.

We are testing these new raid lockout changes in Taiwan and Korea first. Our goal is to expand this change to other regions in the future, but we don’t have anything further to announce at this time with regard to North American implementation.

Just to follow up on this, we currently have no plans to have shorter locks in any region for patches beyond 4.2. We think Raid Finder will be a great way to provide interested players with the opportunity to do a second raid per week.

So you're keeping the gnome Warlocks out?

I don't know if I'll regret giving you attention, Caitie, but this was pretty brilliant. (Ghostcrawler approves.)

:p

The twice-weekly lockouts we recently implemented in Taiwan and Korea for 4.2 raid content is not something we’ll be applying to NA or EU realms. This was a test for us to see how it could affect raid participation by changing the lockout system of older raids. With the release of 4.3, the Raid Finder feature will allow everyone to go for additional attempts at loot drops. We’re very excited about the Raid Finder and will be closely monitoring it and how people use it.

I thought you could only earn loot once a week from a boss with the raid finder. Are you saying that we'll be able to do both the raid finder and normal/heroic and get loot from the same boss twice?


Yup! It'll be "raid finder" ilvl, so it's not going to be quite as good as a normal/heroic piece for that slot, but it'll certainly be a help, and better than a sharp stick in the eye.

To clarify you have your Normal/Heroic lockout. Raid Finder has no lockout, you can run it as much as you want, but bosses will only drop for you once a week. So in one week you can go clear Normal, then go clear Raid Finder and get item drops in both.
