World of Warcraft 4.2 update

Patch 4.2 will add a Daily Area but also a Raid Area.
Patch 4.2 - Firelands Daily Area

Firelands will be more than a raid instance and will include a new questing area and probably a couple of other surprises.

Firelands Daily Zone - Map

Patch 4.2 - Firelands Raid
After the Firelands Daily Area, it's time to take a look at the only thing you all want to see: the Firelands Raid instance!

Just like the daily area, it's a little hard to gather a lot of information about it because the instance isn't even supposed to be in this PTR patch but hopefully the couple of screenshots/maps below will be enough while you wait a few more months (you could probably count in weeks, Patch 4.2 won't be far behind Patch 4.1) before you see it on live realms.

Firelands Raid - Encounters
According to the Blizzcon 2010 Raids & Dungeons Panel, the Firelands raid will have 7 bosses. We already know 3 of them from achievement icones:

  • Fandral Staghelm, former Archdruid of Darnassus.
  • Alysra, the green drake in charge of transporting Fandral to a safe location at the end of the Hyjal questlines in Cataclysm. (Note: Just because there's an icon related to Alysra doesn't mean it's really a boss, in the case of Valithria Dreamwalker the goal of the encounter was to save her)
  • Ragnaros the Firelord, that one isn't really a surprise, right? And he's so pretty now!
