Please be aware that with the release of the pre-expansion 5.0.4 patch on Tuesday, August 28, all raid lockouts will be reset. This means that you will not be able to extend a raid lockout beyond the week before the patch release.
That is all. Get ready to figure out how your new character will handle for Mists. I’m cautiously excited. It will be nice to get a feel for my characters prior to the official launch.
