Can anyone verify this from patch notes or the PTR? I realize it probably won't take long to figure that out once the patch hits, but it would be nice to know before I end up wasting my time running something that I'm loot locked for.

You get locked for loot the first time you kill a boss, you don't have to receive anything.

Ok, this isn't what I've understood then, this way makes no sense being able to run it multiple times if I'm loot locked.

I can think of a few reasons:
  • For rep;
  • To help your guildies who also want to queue;
  • To try to get past the early bosses to the later ones (where your prior raid failed) and might still get loot.
The last one obviously doesn't apply if you've downed Deathwing that week.

Like the dungeon finder, you can enter in a raid in progress. So, you can queue again to get the early bosses or to kill the bosses you cant kill because of a fail group.

Yeah, they pretty much had to let you get multiple runs for drops because they don't expect random groups to succeed as often. It's the answer to the problem that made VoA groups refuse to kill more than the newest boss - even if people needed the loot, the chance that you'd fail on Emalon was high with pugs, and you'd not be able to get a new group to finish off if you were saved to one or two bosses.

There doesn't seem to be one. We can use the mastery/crit axe or expertise/haste mace, but they're not really tanking weapons.

This is probably late but got a drop last night for a tank wpn upgrade mastery and dodge and stam and str lost a bit of parry.

There is another thing you can do -
I tank on my warrior, you tank on your paladin all of the tanking loot goes to your paladin.
I tank on my paladin, you tank on your paladin all the tanking loot goes to my paladin.

With two tanks signing up for two runs easy to grab some guildie healers to heal us reducing the chance of fail.

Everyone wins.

Is anyone else having problems with the mature language filter resetting itself on multiple characters? I turn it off, relog, and it's back on again. >.<

If you exit the game while logged in via a hard program exit, alt-F4 for Windows or Command-Option-Q for Mac, it should retain the setting.

Think so. I have no time anymore.

Given the ease of LFR grabbing two tanks for it seems to just get more loot for the players rather than fail-proofing it.
