How will you fare in this new raid?

To those that don’t know about the new “Flex” raid system, it essentially let’s you decide how many people you want to raid with. The difficulty, and item level of gear, sits between the raid finder and normal mode. Groups can choose any number of players between 10-25 and the raid scales depending on how many players are in the group. There is no matchmaking for this like raid finder, so you form the group and go just like normal and heroic raids.

Now that the schedule is released and the addition of “flex” raids, are you excited for Patch 5.4? Let us know in the comments section.
