Messiah Examines World of
Warcraft Raids

With all the recent information coming out about the Wrath of the Lich
King (WotLK) expansion there has been many topics to discuss. The
current hot topic is the change to raiding coming with the
expansion. Blizzard has seen how popular the 10 main raid content,
introduced in the Burning Crusade, has been and is reacting to it.
Karazhan is hands down the busiest raid instance that Blizzard has ever
created post-expansion. More players have seen it that any other
Burning Crusade Raid.

Due to this popularity, and in an effort to help casual
raiders see more content, Blizzard has stated that in WotLK
all raids will be 10 man and 25 man capable. What does this mean to the
average player and the raider? Byron "Messiah" Mudry examines the topic
in this weeks editorial.

WotLK raids will be the same for both 10 and 25 man versions. This
means that Blizzard can design one area and server two very different
groups. 10 man raids are much more casual than 25 man raids and allow
smaller guilds or even PUGs to attempt them, while 25 man raids require
much more effort and coordination. All the time currently spent
designing 25 main raids will now benefit many more players since the
zone will be the same for both. Likely all bosses and trash will be the
same as well.
