    4.2 New Information

    German MMO site buffed has a lengthy interview with Cory Stockton about 4.2: http://www.buffed.de/World-of-Warcra...tch-42-822077/

    It contains information about the legendary weapon being eventually forged in the major cities (Stormwind and Orgrimmar) during a event with full voice acting, blue dragon flight and everything.

    New Dailies will contain heavy phasing and you can buy additional daily quest hubs with a currency you get from dailies.

    An epic quest line surronding Thrall - and probably his balls

    Firelands/T12:
    • Instance is supposed to be 4 times the size of Obsidian Sanctum, roughly the size of Alterac Valley
    • Ground mounts will be allowed
    • First bosses will be non-linear (I guess that's up to Fandral who will probably be directly followed by Ragnaros)
    • Ragnaros will be the final boss - No Sineastra-like heroic only encounter
    • Heroic Regnaros will be completely different from normal version
    • There will be more bars/meters to make it easier to watch certain mechanics in contrast to a simple debuff stacking
    • There will be a new Baradin Hold boss - another loot pinata (his words!)
    • The interviewer also asked for a second raid dungeon, Cory ignored that part and only answered the Baradin Hold part - interpret yourself.

    Tier 12/Items:
    • All T12 sets will be fire (i.e. firelands) themed (duh) but still trying to stay to the classes lore
    • Sets will bring back nostalgic memories of the times in Molten Core, but will have their own style and fit into firelands
    • Not new but reminder: Warlock will be themed after those awesome looking fire spiders
    • One plate set will be themed after the new fire giants (I guess Anthricyst style but absolutely not sure!), the shoulders will be like the fire giant's face.
    • Set bonus will be firelands themed too and maybe resemble certain boss abilities
    • You won't need fire resistance (duh)
    • There will be epic recipies drops - for "all" professions (i.e. "all" as usual, not really all -.-)

    Legendary:
    • Weapon will be forged in major cities (Stormwind and Orgrimmar respectively)
    • There will be a 'very long' even with much voice acting and the blue dragon flight.
    • There will be a reward if your guild gets the achievement for the new legendary
    • It will most likely be a pet, it is supposed to be unique-not necessarily fiery- and show "we has legendary"
    • The proc of the weapon will be offensive and not suited for healers
    • Both 10 & 25 are supposed to get the weapon roughly at the same pace
    • 25M will have s small advantage of getting the profession related parts done quicker
    • Yeah, nothing more on what profression related parts of the legendary are :S But it will be only a minor part of the progression to the legendary, focus is on raiding

    Encounter Journal (i.e. boss guides):
    • Will be on PTR
    • Will not require unlocking by killing the boss or something
    • They start with entries for Cataclysm content only but plan to add wotlk, tbc and vanilla entries too - later
    • There will be no loot wishlist but they have plans for that (not sure if loot will be listed at all)

    Quests:
    • There will be a new epic level 85 quest line around Thrall
    • It's not revealed if that is about Thrall (maybe) becoming the new aspect of earth
    • No epics as reward, story is the reward
    • Can be completed solo entirely
    • New Daily quests will be "modular" i.e. you start with a base set of quests and earn a currency as reward. With this currency you can unlock other quest hubs and decide how you unlock all of the dailies. This will be acompanied by heavy phasing.
    • Phasing will only change the area and stuff, you will still be able to play with your friends even if they are progressed further
    • There will be new rewards, gear, cosmetical items and mounts (firehawk pls?)
    I clean up and add stuff over time...

    It seems like a really interesting interview, its a shame that Google Translate is such garbage :/

    WTB translation

    Edit: Don't really care though, after thinking about it. Probably just the same information we already generally know.

    Thanks! This is good info.

    I'm REALLY interested on the "buying quest hubs" concept of the Firelands.

    The information about the daily quest zone is really fascinating - you earn some kind of currency via quests to enable new quest hubs.

    Sounds quite damn good. Hopefully the PTR comes fast like they said it would :3

    You won't Need it, but i bet it will help a shit ton. just like Nature resistance helps a ton on Nefarian.

    from the dailies/thrall part(my german is a bit rusty):

    - Thrall will be the main protagonist in the epic quest line + new model
    - the dailies will be just like in SWP and you get to choose which quests to unlock
    - your character wont be phased while doing dailies

    I guess what you mean is the part that it "brings back nostalgic feelings about the times in molten core but will have their own style and fit to firelands" - I will add that.
    Feel free to point out other stuff I missed.

    Nothing about that and I'm sure for a reason. You got 5mans with 4.1 - if the other abyssal maw instance every arrives it will most likely be not with 4.2 because that focuses on firelands.
