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.

    well lets wait and see how T12 will look like.
    And you'll say the exact same thing when T12 comes out. If you haven't cancelled your sub already, you probably should just do it now.

    Guess on scale: there are two magmaws next to the bridge; if they're the same height ... O.O

    As for the 4.1 vs 4.2: also remember that Blizzard felt like it was too soon to put out Firelands based on current world raid progression. 4.1 with extra loot will help that along, as will the additional time before release.

    Did your parents spoil you? What more do you want?

    on topic:

    So um whoever says blizzard is bad, well, as you can see, you're wrong. They clearly took their time on this, looks wise.

    Reporter: Mr. Ragnaros, now that you have your own pair of legs, what will you do next?

    Ragnaros: I'm going to pick up my first pair of Levi's and chaps, then go horseback riding.

    I haven't watched the video yet and won't do so til I get home.

    Will the daily quests be in Sulfuron keep or are they outside in the fiery area of Hyjal?

    So, what would you do to make it good? Don't just whine on a forum that Blizzard doesn't even read. Try and be contructive for once.\

    I'm surprised there's even one tree at all, to be honest.

    Am I the only one not very impressed? People seem to think that fire+lava+slightly updated Rag (with totally new KJ skeleton) = badass. Personally, im not a big fan of fiery zones. The fire hawks definetley deserve animations of their own as they just look silly with the proto drake ones in my opinion. Granted the fights look interesting, but another than that I really don't see what warrants all these replies of "omg i jizzed".

    Also, seeing Fandral with an updated night elf male model makes me wonder when the new textures for player characters will be released. Orc males (Garrosh, Thrall), human male and females ( Varian and Jaina), blood elf females (Sylvanas), night elf males (Malfurion and now Fandral) and even naga males and females (seen pretty much everywhere there are naga mobs and npc's) all have updated textures. When will the rest of the races get theirs, and when will the players get them?

    Too much fire in Firelands, you heard it here first, folks.

    I'm also still not seeing the KJ skeleton OR the worgen skeleton for Rag... as far as I can tell, it must be a totally new skeleton. Remember that he actually has to rise up out of the lava in the heroic encounter to boot. There's really no mobs at all in the game with an animation set capable of doing that which I can think of, which leads me to believe it's a new skeleton.

    Looks cool, so far, looking like Firelands is going to be a really big raid, with both indoor and outdoor parts (like Ulduar) which kind of makes me believe/hope that they've also buffed it from 7-8 bosses to 11-13 with all the time they've had on it. The effects look really really good in some parts as well. Dailies should be a little more fun as Firelands is definetely very interesting looking.

    Looks great but it feels empty. How many times can the same exact concept be recycled before it stops working... I wonder.

    So many spoiled people..

    Anywho, this looks awesome, I just hope the tier sets look just as good.
