Patch 4.2 - Firelands Daily Area Mini Preview
Firelands (Patch 4.2, not 4.1) will be more than the raid instance originally promised, it will also include a new questing area and probably a couple of other surprises! Below is the ugly map of the area I made based on the minimap files and a couple of screenshots.

I don't have a lot more information about it for the moment, but it's still a nice sneak peek at the zone!

Note: It's Malfurion's Breach, not Reach. ><

Firelands Daily Zone - Screenshots

Disclaimer - These screenshots are from an early beta of the zone and are not representative of what you will be able to experience on live servers. Live servers will have a polished zone with monsters, tons of decorative elements, etc ... Anything that moves is basically not on these screenshots.

Clocking in at almost an hour, this video features candid commentary from the people who have spent the last two decades creating the games that helped make Blizzard Entertainment the company it is today.

    It's very reminiscent of the Plane of Oblivion from Oblivion.

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but i think this will be inside the portal in Sulfaron Spire in Mount Hyjal.

    The screenshots reminded me of oblivion gates from oblivion, just with wow graphics i actually like it better.
    Thinking of it the graphic in wow is really nice even though it's not of such high quality it's simplicity just suits it so well.

    I think the zones look awesome and i love having more daily quests available, i just hope they give more bang for the bucks than tol'barad, because tb dailys give such a love income of gold i can do basicly anything else to get it.

    Has it been mentioned how many bosses Firelands will contain? (If so I cannot remember) But looking at 7 "zones" I guess we'll have 7-8 bosses? :-)

    Correct me if I'm wrong
