Patch 4.2 Hotfixes - July 6
Firelands Raid Heroic First Kills - Day 2
Guilds around the world are still working hard on Firelands Raid encounter and the harder bosses are starting to slow progression down in both regions.
US First Kills
- vodka was the first guild in the US to defeat Alysrazor in Heroic Mode.
EU First Kills
- Method was the first guild in Europe to defeat Beth'tilac, Lord Rhyolith, and Alysrazor.
- For The Horde was the first guild in Europe to defeat Shannox.
As I write this news posts, 10 Guilds killed the first 4 bosses of the Firelands Raid and are working on the last 3: Baleroc, Majordomo Staghelm, and Ragnaros. See the ranking below, courtesy of WoWProgress.

Season 9/10 Vicious Gladiator Gear Changes in 4.2
For those of you who didn't understand the Arena drama going on, Blizzard stealth-upgraded all the parts of Season 9 Armor into new ilvl 371 items to replace the old ilvl 365 items. For example, Vicious Gladiator's Armbands of Meditation (365) was replaced with Vicious Gladiator's Armbands of Meditation (371).
The change wasn't retroactive and people who bought their gear a few days before the patch basically ended up spending their points on gear that was slightly outdated a few days later, without warning from Blizzard.
I've also seen a forum thread wondering why I didn't announce the change, easy, the items were definitely there but I had no real ways to know why; back in the day I just assumed it was Blizzard testing their new tooltip code (season displays) with old items to test everything. Test items happen all the time, and without anything mentioned in the official notes there was no real way to figure out what they are.
