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!

    Gonna go ahead and guess that Rag will port you somewhere in hard mode, that room looked pretty small for him to be standing up and moving around in : D

    Somehow I don't get it....why are there people surprised, that the zone is red/orange-fiery-themed?
    What did you expect of the FIRELAND, elemental plain of FIRE? My little pwny/Carebare-Themed areas?

    OT: me wants!

    Who the hell said they DO NOT expect fire in Firelands? We just say that the fire theme is boring and repetitive. Geez...

    We just don't understand the basis of your complaints. It might be "repetitive," but where else is Ragnaros supposed to make an appearance? The land of ice and snow with the midnight suns?

    Ragnaros is guarded by NOT ONE, BUT TWO MAGMAWS!!

    The lava worms might simply be a trash pull similar to Cho'gall's Faceless Ones.

    One Molten Core, one Blackwing Lair, twice (three times even) the Onyxia, Blackwing Descent, all of the Blackrock Mountain dungeons, half Bastion of Twilight (with some recolored fire), 4th time a recolored RFC caverns (seriously, seeing 1:1 RFC in a Dragonblight subzone was ridiculous) etc etc. It's kind of enough. And yes, of course Ragnaros is supposed to make an appearance in a fire raid but who says we want Ragnaros actually? Three times or so Kael'Thas, three times Onyxia, 2 times each of the Blood Princes, two times Nefarian, 2 times Naxx, 2 times recycled troll stuff, now 2nd time Ragnaros. It's getting a bit too much really. They need some fertile spores from Zangarmarsh for creativity.

    No, almost certainly it will drop from Ragnaros. Remember that Ashes of Al'ar drops from Kael'thas, not from Al'ar. Mimiron's Head drops from Yogg, not from Mimiron. This is the exact same situation.

    I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was.
    To catch them is my real test, to train them is my cause...
    I will travel across the land, searching far and wide,
    Each Pokemon to understand, the power that's inside.
    Pokemon...gotta catch 'em all!!
    It's you and me...
    I know it's my destiny
    Pokemon...Oh..you're my best friend,
    in a world we must defend.
    Pokemon...Gotta catch 'em all!!
    A heart so true--Our courage will pull us through!
    You teach me and I'll teach you!
    Pokemon!
    Gotta Catch 'Em All!
    Gotta Catch 'Em All!
    POKE-KE-MON!

    Video of 4.2 seams to contain zapdos (http://arkeis.com/images/pokemonfactory/zapdos.png)
    and ofc Entei http://images2.fanpop.com/images/pho...28-175-200.gif chuck some pokaballs in and a pokemon theme tune above on the video and you could mistake it for a pokemon mmo.

    WTF??
