ZONE PROGRESSION / POPULATION
Current Raid Zones
Due to an exploit, raid zones now have a hard 2.8 day [ 2 days 20 hours] lockout timer. Timers will expire naturally and are no longer able to be reset. This will include all Velious and future Raid zones.
Plane of War is now a hard 4.8 day [4 days 20 hours] lockout timer.
player commentary on exploit
October 16, 2012 @ 9:32 am
The reason they are doing this is due to an exploit. No, I don’t think this is the right solution but here is the exploit.
You log in and run a zone and set a timer.
The next night you open a new instance of the same zone, say PoW on some alts.
You clear everything you can in the first zone and when the timer is resetable you reset and open up a new zone with a 30 min lockout.
When 30 min is up you go into the zone set by the alts and get all the loot from that one.
Now you can reset again and have gained a full extra zone of loot.
This is what the raid guilds are exploiting.
