Patch 4.2: Firelands Boss Loot Including Where Pureblood Fire Hawk Drops
Thanks to the Encounter Journal feature on the PTR, we now have what drops from what boss in our knowledge for
Tierras de Fuego
. This is pretty awesome and it confirms things most people speculated about ilevels, including how
has an elevated ilevel like
does from current content (as well as a mace that any Holy paladin would probably kill to have).
Piedra de fuego cristalizada
also drops from all heroic modes of bosses it seems and it is uncertain as to what this item is used for, though it could quite possibly be used to upgrade armor pieces.
A lot of people thought that
Huevo humeante de Millagazor
would drop from a rare mob, but no, that's also our favorite Firelord. Speaking of mounts, however, it's possible that since
Garfa de fuego de Alysrazor
isn't tied to a loot table for a boss currently that it could be from a rare mob or a random drop from doing the zone quests--which
plays a role in. We'll have to wait and see.

Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14179 - Spell Changes, New Items and More!
Blizzard has just released a new PTR patch, as a follow-up to yesterday's
major official patch notes update
. Just a few class changes and clarifications today, mostly already documented in the previous patch notes update - including spell details for the nerfed raid boss abilities. We're still digging in the patch data, so if we find any more interesting additions we'll be updating this post!
As for new items, Blizzard has added yet another
batch of epic quality loots (over 250 new/updated items!), and finally started adding the actual item sets for the Tier 12 items, so you guys will be able to easily find and check out set bonuses and all that good stuff!

Ask the Devs #8 Answered, Next Topic is Tanking
And here comes the latest Ask the Devs rubric we'll see for a long time.
. If you have submitted any questions regarding the new bosses, T12, the daily quest hubs in Hyjal and the Firelands, or just about lore, here's your chance to see them (or ones like them) answered. Some of the more interesting questions inquire after that Abyssal Maw dungeon Blizzard promised us a while back (we are not getting it), raid balance and boss mechanics in the Firelands, and even a little bit of lore to make those of us into that kind of thing very happy.
Ask the Devs #9 was

Patch 4.2 Public Test Realm Notes - Updated 5/24
The 4.2 Patch Notes have been updated! This latest update brings major nerfs to T11 encounters in preparation for Firelands, as Blizzard wishes to allow more players access to the content. This update also contains an assortment of class changes (including some important tanking changes) as well as a few more T12 set bonus adjustments.
With the upcoming content patch, 10- and 25-person Normal mode raid encounters will be receiving a comprehensive set of tuning adjustments to decrease their difficulty.
These changes will allow players, groups, and guilds who have yet to experience the content in Blackwing Descent, Bastion of Twilight, and Throne of the the Four Winds an opportunity to do so.
With the addition of a new tier of armor and weapons, we want to make the previous tier more accessible in ways other than just a shift of currency type, so we are making item level 359 gear purchasable for Justice points in the upcoming content patch.
Read the updated patch notes here
to see the current list of changes. Please note that all adjustments are subject to change based on the current 4.2 test

Patch 4.2: Farewell, Keyring
The keyring being unavailable on the PTR wasn't a bug, apparently; come 4.2, the keyring is being removed from the game. As someone who remembers when the keyring was a welcomed addition, it's an interesting sign of the times to see it disappear from whence it came. A lot of keys will be going with it as well it seems.
World of Warcraft has evolved quite a bit since the day the Keyring bag slot was added in patch 1.11. When implemented, the Keyring provided players with a convenient way of storing dungeon, quest, and other keys automatically. Back when the largest bag was a mind bottling 18 slots -- rumored to be bottomless -- the Keyring helped save precious bag space. But as things tend to do, time went on, bags got bigger, and designs for (literally and figuratively) gating content evolved through the years. In today’s Azeroth, keys don’t really serve much of a purpose except to take up physical storage space from the game (which could be used for other awesome stuff), and visual interface space from you. Because of this, we’ve decided to get rid of the Keyring in order to free up that space for new features. This change could als

Patch 4.2: Elemental Bonds Quest Preview
The Elemental Bonds questline is finally up on the PTR and we've taken the liberty of doing it all so you can spoil yourselves silly. As a point of note, this questline is the main lore point behind 4.2 and it features both the villains as well as the heroes of
Tierras de Fuego
As the Blizzard preview teased, this quest chain focuses on Aggra and Thrall both as lovers and heroes trying to save the world. Having seen it in-depth, we can confirm that it focuses on both traditional and nontraditional enemies; as much of the questline is Thrall overcoming his fears and desires as a mortal being with limited time on Azeroth as it is fighting elementals.
To help showcase this truly epic quest, we've compiled a YouTube video of all the scenes from start to finish and we also wrote up more in-depth guide. You can find both in this post.
However, if you don't want to be spoiled, close this page
. Even the comments will probably be rife with debate or speculation on this quest chain and its implementation, outcome, and so on. In short, it's not our fault if you spoil yourselves. We've warned you

Reputation and Daily Rewards in Patch 4.2
When a new patch hits, the first thing you want to know is where to get geared up. Besides the
Tierras de Fuego
raid itself, there are two other methods in which to get gear so far. We've put the items we've uncovered earlier this week and last into separate listings so you can see how you can get gear beyond just the boss drops from a certain Firelord's new domain.
Vengadores de Hyjal
This faction will provide players with extremely good gear--if they can become famed with them, anyway. The specifics aren't out yet and all we know is that it will involve some raiding. Luckily for non-raiders, most people are speculating that it will be more like one of vanilla's reputation grinds:
Linaje de Nozdormu
. Unlike the most recent raid reputation grind of
El Veredicto Cinéreo
from Wrath of the Lich King, Brood reputation was able to be acquired without raiding up until a certain point and then up until introductory bosses until another. So if it does indeed follow this method, it wouldn't be hard to imagine the friendly or even honored rewards being obtained by people who seldom set foot in the raid instance.
It's also nice to see a lot of items besides rings making an appearance. Keep in mind that these are by no me

Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14133 - New Models for Nozdormu, Fire Raven God and More!
Last night's patch included a few interesting new 3D models after all! Most notably the fiery version of Anzu makes an appearance--
he was mentioned here
a while ago as one of the coveted vanity rewards, but there's still no word on where he drops.
In addition to this bad boy, the patch also included an amazing humanoid model for the bronze dragon Nozdormu (he shows up at some part of the
legendary staff quest chain
and the Thrall questline) and an amazing set of fiery shoulders upon one of Majordomo Staghelm's Druids of the Flame. These guys appear in the Alysrazor encounter and throughout Firelands as trash mobs. Not only that, but we've got an updated model for the new
Riendas del corcel de guerra sañoso

Blizzard has snuck another late night patch onto the 4.2 PTRs! This latest update doesn't seem to feature very many interesting spell changes, as most seem to be simply tooltip clarifications and rewordings, but there's probably something I'm not noticing so you guys should definitely check 'em out! Pretty ho-hum new icons, as well, though the one labeled "fireravengodmount" definitely raises my eyebrow. Speaking of mounts, looks like PVP aficionados are going to get some love with the new

New Site Feature: 4.2 Encounter Journal Integration
As many of you guys may remember, way back at BlizzCon, Blizzard announced that they were working on a new
(then called "Dungeon Journal") game feature. This new feature would provide tons of valuable information in-game to players, including detailed dungeon information such as boss lists, drop tables, and ability details. Well, not only is the tool finally being added to World of Warcraft in the upcoming Patch 4.2, but we're happy to announce that we have been able to make all of the Encounter Journal details available on the site, as well!
Now dungeon pages on Wowhead (including zone pages and boss pages) will feature content directly from Blizzard's in-game Encounter Journal! Blizzard has been slowly implementing this content on the PTR, so not all dungeons feature Encounter Journal information at this time, but as soon new entries are available they'll start showing up on their respective dungeon pages.

Patch 4.2 Will Allow Players to Group With Friends Across Realms
One of the more interesting features that's been requested since Real ID was implemented has been a way to actually group with your Real ID friends. It seems that Blizzard intends to make this possible fairly soon as it will be available on the PTR for testing this patch. It's worth noting that some features of the system will require what Blizzard vaguely refers to as a "premium" service, indicating a fee of some sort.
With this feature on the way, you have to wonder if they'll make cross factions available with cross server groups. Right now, the answer seems to a resounding no; the feature will only support same faction groups. So unfortunately, if your friends are Horde and you're Alliance, it will be largely worthless. Of course, with instances like the WotLK faction specific ones, it's probably quite a headache to code and it's development time better spent elsewhere. Still, I'd love to run a ZG/ZA with Perculia for once!
With the continued popularity of the Dungeon Finder, many players have been asking for a way to group up with real-life friends who play on other realms to take on instances together. Today, we wanted to give you a head

Brand New Hairstyles on the 4.2 PTR
A number of races got additional hairstyles on the PTR this weekend! We’ve taken advantage of the race/faction changing-options to find out what exactly you can get on the PTR: we've got screenshots and names of all the available cosmetic options.
Of course, there’s been hairstyles on previous PTRs that weren’t implemented, but with so many additions, hopefully some will stay--these seem to be generating quite a buzz, so maybe it will even encourage Blizzard to add more. We'll keep updating if more customizations become available.

Dungeon Journal Preview: All Seven Firelands Encounters Unveiled
The PTR updated this weekend with the encounter journal. The developers at Wowhead have been working on integrating it into our database entries and it's an exciting feature you should see soon. However, in this case, soon isn't enough: you probably want to see it right now. Well, you can! With the help of volunteers ArgentSun, Perculia, and Remnath, I've transcribed the data you care about--
Tierras de Fuego
Below are the encounter journals for all seven bosses in the zone (plus Occu'thar in Baradin Hold), so tread lightly if spoilers scare you. Of course, if you're into seeing what you'll be facing on 4.2, go and indulge yourself. It's worth it. Ragnaros is the best looking fight in particular; it's epic on a level that
Solo en la oscuridad (25 j.)
and quite similar in design, too. During the fight on heroic mode, you will face an additional stage in which you will be aided by three familiar friends: Cenarius, Arch Druid Hamuul Runetotem, and Malfurion Stormrage. It sounds a lot like the Keepers in Ulduar.
Anyway, if these journals are any indication, this dungeon should cure a lot of burnout players have been facing. And hey, who knows, maybe those ~600,000 subscribers Blizzard "lost" will come back on patch d

News Roundup: New Tier Set Bonuses, Holy Paladin Nerfs, and Dancing
Zarhym's been a busy community manager today, posting in threads about everything from dancing to tier 12 set bonuses. If you recall last week,
we datamined the tier 12 set bonuses from the PTR
, and it generated a lot of buzz. Of course, they weren't balanced; some of them were very underwhelming and others were simply overpowered. As such, Blizzard's been looking into it this week and they have some solid revisions to offer already. They can't possibly be the final ones, though--Holy paladins would have a decent set bonus if that were true and you know Blizzard isn't
nice about tier sets for the class! (Kidding. Sort of.)
Other notable threads included a justification for Holy paladin mana changes in 4.2 and a thread about dancing in combat. Because dancing in combat is important.

Today on PTR we got some time with the newly renamed

Phase one starts out different from most fights as there is no need to tank him. He ambles around slowly and does not attack directly; instead, the real threat is where he intends to walk. Consequently, you'll need to steer him where you want him to path by attacking his left and right legs--applying DPS to the leg in which direction you want him to turn. We found it best to only have two or three melee on him at most communicating on ventrilo where they wanted him to turn and calling out switches. There is also a bar on the screen the indicates how much in the respective direction Rhyolith will be turning to help you out.

For phase one, you split into groups for below her web and on top of it; for phase two, everyone groups up underneath her web and you must kill her before her increasing damage is too high while dealing with a debuff similar to
