    I know there will be instancing and raids, but I've only heard about 40 man raids. I was curious if we've heard about smaller size raids (20 or less).

    Sorry if this has been answered in another post...

    Yep, there are 20 person raids as well. You can read more about it in the newest wildstar wednesday topic where they discussed raids.

    yes they said 20 and 40 man size raids. They will be seperate encounters and do not cross over. If you have seen 20 man content than you have not seen the 40 man content :) no more...... Hard modes just " The Raid" Lol :)

    There will also be 20 man raids, but apparently they will be different content (i.e. not a 20 man version of the 40 man raid.)

    Thats good (and I'll check that other post, thanks). I remember the agony of tryng to put together 40 man raids in the old days. A pain to get together, but definitely some lasting memories in there!

    The real issue is, will the loot be the same in 20 and 40 man raids?

    if its gonna be anything like rift (it has diffrent 10 and 20 man raids) the loot will be similar in power, with the the end boss in 20 man dropping some more powerfull stuff. Nothing has really been said, but i imaging at the very least that the loot will be similar in power.

    I tried to find where I read it or which interview I've watched but couldn't find it.
    But if I remember correctly, it have been stated that the dropps from 20 and 40 men raids will be different (you can see if a player have done 40 man raiding), but nothing about the stats being different between them or just visuals.

    40 mans should drop better loot over 20 mans, IMO. This whole topic really killed WoW's raiding community!

    Yup, larger raids should give better loot.

    Not sure how I feel about raid content requiring such large groups. It cuts off a lot of players from experiencing it. :\

    That's the whole point. They've confirmed at PAX that the harder 40 man, which basically gives the best gear is made for the most of hardcores.

    Taken from Gempulse impression & interview:

    I understand the point, but I'm not a fan of setting aside entire swaths of content for only a few people. If I don't want to be in a super duper hard core, massive raiding guild (which is not an atmosphere I enjoy - when I do raid, I like it to be much more close-knit)... then that's a chunk of the game I never get to see.

    It's just not a good feeling.

    20 people is a lot of people. I much prefer 10 man. It's large enough to feel like a raid, and small enough to still feel like a family.
