How can a player reactivate an expired instance lock?
A player can reactivate an expired instance lock by opening up the Raid Information pane, selecting the appropriate expired instance, and clicking on the “Reactive Raid Lock” button.
Are there any limitations to when an expired instance lock can be reactivated?
A player can reactivate an expired instance lock so long as a new instance lock has not been created for that heroic dungeon or raid. The ability to reactivate an expired lock will not be available after 4 weeks of inactivity. If a player does not use the instance for a month, the lock will permanently reset and cannot be reactivated.

How long will a lock extension last?
The duration of a lock extension will depend on the type of lock the extension is being applied to (active or reactivated).

If an extension is being applied to an active instance lock, the amount of time added will be based on the normal lockout period for the instance. For example, instances with a 24-hour lockout period (heroic dungeons) will be extended for 24 hours and raids with a 7-day lockout period will be extended for 7 days.

If an extension is being applied to reactivate an instance lock, the amount of time added will only extend to the next reset period. For example, if an instance lock is reactivated on a Sunday, but is scheduled to reset during the next maintenance period, the lock will only remain active until the following Tuesday. Reactivated instance locks cannot be additionally extended.
How many times can an instance lock be extended?
An instance lock can be extended indefinitely; however, some instance locks may be reset when a new patch is released. Similarly, an expired instance lock may be repeatedly reactivated provided that it has not been permanently reset. If a patch is scheduled to reset an instance lock, notification will be provided before the patch's release.
When an instance lock is extended, is the entire group with that lock affected?
Extending an instance lock is a personal choice. If a player decides to extend their instance lock, no other party or raid members will be affected (this applies even if the extending player is a party or raid leader).
Can an instance lock extension be removed?
Yes, but only if the extending player does not get saved to the instance after extending. To become saved to an extended instance lock, a player must either participate in a boss kill, zone into the instance after a boss has been killed, or wipe on a encounter with limited attempts.
How can a player remove an instance lock extension?
A player can remove an instance lock extension by opening up the Raid Information page, selecting the appropriate extended instance lock, and clicking on the “Remove Raid Lock” button. This also applies when removing an extension from a reactivated instance lock. When a reactivated instance lock is removed, the lockout ID will expire.
