    Using the same raid lockout Every Week to farm rare mounts! No Second Account Needed!

    While this is somewhat a guide, I am placing it here since it clearly bypasses some intended game mechanics in regards to raid ID lockouts and so on. Mods can move to Guides if they feel it is more appropriate


    Exact Steps Are As Follows (Video should help make it clear as well)
    It really gets much faster once you realize how to do it!

    • Step 1 ) Farm to boss you want to farm on one character (You should ONLY farm on NORMAL difficulty, as you will switch to heroic later).
    • Step 2 ) On the character that is saved up to the boss, create LFG group with auto-invite (set to private if applies, preferably yes, just keep alt names on friends list or have alts in same guild)
    • Step 3 ) Log onto character you want to share lockout with.
    • Step 4 ) Open LFG tool, join your own group
    • Step 5 ) Lead should pass quickly, as the other toon is Offline.
    • Step 6 ) Once you have lead, reset all instances
    • Step 7 ) Change raid size to correct size, generally 25 man for mount farming.
    • Step 8 ) ZONE IN
    • Step 9 ) Accept the raid lockout. If you are in ICC it should say something like "11/12 bosses have been killed"
    • Step 10) If boss needs to be killed on Heroic, like in ICC, once inside, THEN change to heroic, bot before. This is critical!
    • Step 11) KILL BOSS!
    • Step 12) Leave group (LFG should remain active. If not, log back to the first saved toon and re-create group)
    • Step 13) Repeat Steps 3 to 12 for other characters.


    NOTE: You DO NOT need to disband the party as your offline toon will not get saved. Also disbanding can give you the 60 sec countdown if you do it after zoning in.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: When doing a raid like ICC, do not clear up to the Lich King in heroic. Clear ICC 10 or 25 in NORMAL mode up to the LK, so your "saved" character is saved to ICC normal at the Lich King. Set it to ICC 25 normal, enter the instance, and then after you are inside the ICC instance and accepted the NORMAL mode 25 lockout, then you set it to heroic.

    ALSO!!!!

    This does NOT work on Vanilla or TBC raids, unfortunately. So, no easy farming Illidan. This is due to how the raid ID mechanisms changed in WOTLK and subsequent expansions.
