After each region's maintenance this week, raids will no longer lose attempts on wipes in Normal mode for Professor Putricide, Blood-Queen Lana'thel, Sindragosa, and the Lich King. There will still be limited attempts in Heroic mode.
We will continue to monitor developments in Icecrown Citadel in the future, especially since the Heroic difficulty has been unlocked by a significant number of raids.
Basic Q&A about this change:
Q: If you extend your raid lockout this week, will you still lose attempts on Normal after the hotfix?
Q: If you run completely out of attempts on Heroic, will the wing bosses and Lich King no longer respawn, even if the difficulty is switched to Normal?
A: YES. So leave an attempt left if you wish to kill them on Normal. We'll try and correct this in a future update.
Q: Why is the counter still visible in Normal?
A: The hotfix being applied just stops the counter decrementing, and nothing more.
Q: If you extend your raid lockout after a week where you have lost all your attempts, do you get new attempts at the Lich King + wing bosses after the extension?
A: NO. Extension of the raid lockout will just extend that you lost all your attempts and the Lich King + Wing Bosses will not be spawned. Start a new raid this week!
