Classless 10 Man Raids and Double Exp Event
Same Dungeons, New way to Raid
Ten Man Raids are coming to Ascension
Raiding is one of the most thrilling experiences Ascension has to offer. The excitement of getting together a group of people to take on intense challenges and achieve greater loot is, for many players, the pinnacle of gameplay. For many, however, getting a group of 25 other players--or getting a spot in such a group--is a huge obstacle, due to either time constraints, or in most cases, real life (not just fantasy).
We are proud to lift that burden slightly: 10 Man Raids are coming to Ascension!
We’re making raids more accessible to more players. Now, beginning with Molten Core and continuing with the release Zul’gurub and all future raids, players will be able to set their Raid to 10 man. This will not only adjust the difficulty of the dungeon accordingly, but offer a brand new way to get some of the best pieces of gear in the game, offering bigger stats, more damage, and--unique to Project Ascension--more powerful Random Enchantments. Rejoice heroes: you’ve got the chance to grow stronger now than ever before!
Why are we Making the Change?
We first made the decision to reduce Molten Core from a 40 man raid to a 25 man raid in order to allow more people access to these incredibly fun challenges. That’s exactly the reason we’re making 10 mans now--we want more players to have access to Ascension’s end-game content. People want to raid and get badass gear. We want you to as well, so we’re giving you more options to get it.
Here’s what’s happening:
Raid Leaders will now be able to set their raids to 10 Man. This will appropriately scale the difficulty of the raid, as well as the loot that drops from bosses.
Both 10 and 25 man versions of Vanilla raids will drop the same gear. However, 10 man raids will drop less gear per run than a 25 man raid.
Both 10 and 25 man raids will have unique raid IDs, allowing you to run both in any given week (loot pinata!)
Tuned for Classless WoW
Our developers have poured tons of hours into making sure 10 mans offer a unique and satisfying challenge to raiders. Even with our classless system, expect to have to take care in putting together raids and assembling your allies: the best gear in the game doesn’t get picked up easily!
10 Man Molten Core will be coming to Project Ascension Wednesday, October 18th, along with a host of other changes. Zul’gurub will be on the way soon after! To Celebrate, we’re hosting a Double EXP event from now until the official release. Use this time wisely, heroes! You’ll need to be at full strength to delve into the chamber of the Firelord!
