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!

    Well, that was fast.

    Looks incredibly awesome though, might even consider raiding instead of doing homework again now!

    Hope this is as good as Ulduar, I see some parallelisms here, so /crosses fingers.

    4.2 should be the kick in the ass WoW needs (in a good sense the kick, of course)

    How did Fandral Staghelm end up in the firelands again?

    It's the FIRELANDS. What do you expect?

    1) If they put it out in a month, or even two, why not bundle it with 4.1's content and flood the playerbase with all sorts of new stuff to keep us busy for a long time?
    2) If they put it out in more than two months (what I was expecting) then these previews are just really early.
    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.
    There was a blue post a long time ago, went looking for it yesterday.. its on page 16 orso of this site... They put out 4.1 as Firelands was not ready and they did not want to hold back the content they felt was ready to be implemented. Thus, trying to introduce smaller patches more frequently than giant bundles on a larger time scale.

    Right before Ragnaros, fight two Magmaws, at the same time!

    Ohh very interesting, Ragnaros looks amazing without legs too, I'm just sad about Fandral, was hoping an original skin, T11 + Fire?

    Fire - again. It does not look that entertaining tbh, I hope I'll be pleasantly suprised.
