    Its stonebrunt Mountains not Stonegrunt. Also the raid content thing they mentioned about choosing difficulty is about old content. Its called auto mentoring. THere was no mention of raidwide buffs which many are trying to now say was mentioned.

      Sorry but other than the spelling issue, you are full of crap.

      Illys can put time compression on 4 ppl, one in each group.
      Some dirge buffs will go raidwide.
      And raid bosses that let you choose difficulty are NEW zones only. Gu53 miraguls shard and T9 raid zones.

      Nice try.

    “Be able to clear instances and then progress to the next zone.”

    Is this any different than the ROK Tiered raiding? Or possibly this is talking about group zones only.

      Kunark raid progression was linear. Clear t1 then do t2. Clear t2 then do t3 (Levi). Clear t3 and then you are in VP.

      Raid mobs of the same difficulty were spread over 3 zones in TSO, making copious use of raid flags and calling to the guild hall necessary.

    “2 overland zones

    No mention of # of raid zones or raid contested being added for t9?
    What do you mean by “level by grouping or soloing”? How is that different than current leveling?

      Group adventuring and dungeon crawling gives so little XP that it is a poor choice to level 70-80z. The only way to level in Kunark was 400 linear runaround quests in long linked chains that made sharing and working on them consistently with a group neigh impossible. TSO shard quests helped (5% per) but grabbing quests inside a contested progression zone would be nice.

    I understand this, as I raided in ROK and TSO. So when you said “Be able to clear instances and then progress to the next zone.” you are saying SF (Sentinel Fate’s) raiding will be similar to TSO?

    You said that we will be getting some Ratonga Lore? Just the Lore? or will we be getting some Ratonga related items? Such as Cheese?
