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!

    Am I the only one that thinks the entirety of the Firelands looks like what's inside the Oblivion portals and Daedric architecture in the game Oblivion?

    No about 30-40% of the other posters seem to think so as well.

    You act as if an entire guild of people who chose to work together as a team wasn't able to farm all of this gear in a matter of days.
    The 'invisible wall' was only an obstacle to the mememememememe crowd. and one they deserved.

    this looks awesome, apart from perhaps BWD, this gives me the "cataclysmic" feel of this expansion

    Looks sweet, I guess this will be like the Isle of Quel'danas from Burning Crusade then, which is good cause the Tol Barad daily hub kinda blows and once you have everything from it, there is no point in doing dailies there.

    in a word: Disappointed.

    Man...Casey as usual spends half the report time on mailbag that noone even cares about, honestly stop filling the report with junk and provide some quality information or don't make the report.

    P.S. Estonia doesn't have krones anymore!

    I'm probably not the only one who read "Antichrist Zone" in first place, am I?
    It's not even that far fetched..just switch some letters and you have at least AntiChryst.
