Blizzard released 2 official previews of the Patch 4.2 Raid and Patch 4.2 Daily Quests Area! We finally have a decent idea of what to expect there and seeing the zones (and Ragnaros :D) outside of the datamining environment is refreshing. If you missed the earlier previews, don't hesitate to check them out!

    I almost...jizzed...firelands...has to much epicness...must contain!!

    Am I the only one who sees that inceratus guy or the ...guy with the volcanoes. He's the first or second boss, the first one you see actual players in combat with. Am I the only one who sees him being a fight like supremus?

    Also un-impressed by the second to last boss...looks like another loatheb type fight. Cant say much about rag though sadly, he's not as big as they made him out to be


    Daily quests look pretty epic though

    3) Did they put out 4.1 to test balance changes, in preparation for further balancing of 4.2? Do they want to have balance juuuuuust right for Firelands? Is this Ulduar 2.0, but they want to avoid the raiding problems of Ulduar's timing?
    4) Am I looking way too much into this? Most likely. Looks great though, from any perspective.
    1) Short answer: Because it's not done yet
    2) A lot of people are (or were) guessing 4.2 would follow swiftly after 4.1, so the timeframe does make sense
    3) I imagine that has a lot to do with it. 4.2 will inevitably contain balance changes, but the focus is on the new raid and daily areas
    4) Probably, and I conur

    Really? I didn't get a very good sense of scale from the shots of Rag's room. Won't really know how big or small he is until we can see players around him

    We're not in Molten Core anymore.
    Looks like Blizzard might have outdone themselves again.

    I get a Supremus feel aswell. Regarding the elf shapshifting boss I rather get a Twin Val'Kyr or whatever dthe dragon in Karazhan was called again.

    Didnt they say we wouldnt have "wings" in this? Now I dont know much about the raid other than what the video showed and what they've said, but it looks like its a free roam area meaning you can take any boss on at any time besides ragnaros and I'm guessing the one before him.

    I thought they said it was gonna be non-linear
