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!

    It looks like a lot of trash is missing in the video. There's almost no trash besides the double Magmaws leading up to Rag, no trash at all before Fanghorn in front of the gates, no trash leading to the spider boss... this is pretty obviously not complete. This is a preview. It's not really a stretch to assume a lot of props and doodads and particles are even missing still.

    OMG OMG OMG, Ragnaros looks so Fing AWSOME! I love that model! Now I really can't wait to fight him once more, I hope just hope he'll use some of the original quotes from MC!

    So... much... red and orange. I'm tired of this already.
    Really? Too much red and orange... in the firelands. Sigh. Someone give this guy a double rainbow raid so he can be happy please.

    I'm actually excited even though I don't raid anymore. It just looks so badass, all of it.

    Here is to hoping the daily quest hub is more like SSO instead of TOC and partially TB. I want more conflict between the factions with ganking this time around.

    These screenshots from the fire lands dailies make me think of DOOM.

    I noticed this too. Was sad to see it reused. I don't like the way the hawks are walking. Though, I would still not hesitate to ninja the mount if it drops :P

    Clearly Ragnaros is just a reskinned Imp

    Gosh, that's an idea. And it's reinforced by the shots of the tree in the daily area.

    *fingers crossed*

    Not one but TWOOOO Magmaws!

    So, judging by the daily quest maps it's similar to Tol Barad, which is nothing but an artificial ZOO, where you get one type of mob per small section so god forbid there would be accidental trash spillover and you'd have to kill a spider that you don't need for the daily.

    Nothing shockingly impressive really. If you turn off the music of the videos you see that the music does half the work for it. Waiting for more information on what 4.2 intends to bring, aside from raid and a new daily quest zoo.

    Darn, I was hoping to be the first with the not one but TWO magmaws joke.

    shouldnt it be fandral staghelm (night elf) instead of fandral staghelm (human)?

    So I guess the Dragon hawk boss will drop that mount that was mentioned earlier that looks like him
    And guessing the dailies faction will give the green version.
    bet 4.2 will be released the week before fire festival k go!

    I demand more legs! Nah. I love Ragnaros the way he is <3

    I weren't impressed though by the preview. But we'll see.
