News Roundup: Siege of Orgrimmar Normal/Heroic Cross-Realm Raids, Hotfixes and F2P Heroes

or the title of Conqueror/
Liberator of Orgrimmar
; both of which aren't available to be earned within Flexible or Raid Finder difficulty.This change is currently live.Correct -- current-tier Mythic raiding in Warlords will still be limited to players from a single server.
