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.

Head over to the anniversary site and check out the Blizzard Retrospective Video now!

    It's the administrators and moderators job to detect and deal with trolls.

    It's not the users' job to sit there calling each other trolls for 10 pages. If you search around on the forums, you can get more information on the rule.

    Looks great but it does look like Oblivion's Gates with a few spiderwebs... I'd be on the lookout for Daedra!

    God I love fire-themed areas.

    In pretty much any game.

    Even if it only looks dangerous.

    I embrace all opportunities to use ground mounts. In a world where you can skip everything by flying over it, having a few areas where you're grounded keeps it in perspective. In my opinion, of course.

    Oh yes, it's like Icecrown only without all that annoying ice (I'm from what's know as the subarctic climate region, we have enough snow and ice, to me it doesn't say "evil demigod with an army of zombies" it just says "Waiting for the bus to work in -30 C with the wind pushing the last warm air out of your clothes").

    It looks like the Design for Shadowmoon valley, Just with more fire and less fel fire / Demons.
    Am i the only one who picked that?

    I guess the map is of one zone divided into subzones?

    Looks promising, thanks for the update Bibi.

    It must have come as a big shock to you that the Firelands contained lava and fire.

    I love fire. I love land. I should enjoy this zone. Maybe we'll need Hot Weather Flying
    A raid+new zone is pretty cool. Maybe it'll include a dungeon or something also!

    yup and we will have entered all 4 planes of the base elements.
    deathknights can go to the shadow realm.
    and we all skim the emerald dream from time to time but we never really entered it.

    Great video that Blizzard retrospective video.

    He he,

    Blizzard has annouced that we want their players to swich to the new MMO
    (watch the video, towards the end).

    However, before everyone shouts at me, he did say "still in development stage", so probably not for any time soon.


    That said, I like the video!
