Not a whole lot of shiny new epics this patch, just some new epic-quality mail boots - (and their Heroic counterpart, ).
Two new companion pets have been added with this patch. We have absolutely no idea where these come from just yet, but they're pretty nifty!
In addition, a new quest reward was added, , which is awarded upon completion of and is a vanity item that transforms you into a Druid of the Flame ()!

Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14199 - New Items, Icon, Spell Changes
2011/05/31 at 7:42 PM
A new patch has just hit the Public Test Realms, bringing a handful of changes previously announced with the
patch notes update
a few days ago! Class changes are fairly boring, mostly tooltip changes for clarity, though there are a few spell changes here and there - nothing extremely surprising.
Only a small handful of items, as well, including some new Firelands weapons (and their Heroic versions) and a new Leatherworking armor kit, . Most importantly, however, is the addition of a new companion pet: ! This lil' guy is taught by and is most likely this year's

Patch 4.2 Public Test Realm Notes - Updated 5/26
2011/05/26 at 5:01 PM
Patch 4.2 PTR Patch Notes have just been updated, documenting a number of fairly major class changes including a
adjustments and some brand spankin' new
changes! Some additions which were actually added with the
5/24 patch notes update
have had their text clarified (so if some things look familiar, that's why).
The Keyring bag slot has been removed to make room in the user interface for new features.
Keys which no longer serve a purpose in the game will be removed from player inventories. Compensation for the keys will be automatically provided in the form of each key's vendor sell price in gold.
Keys which are obsolete quest items will be removed from player inventories.
Keys which may still be of use to players will be transferred to regular inventory space. If a player's bags are full, these keys will sit in a backlogged inventory until sufficient space is made available. Once space is opened, the keys will appear in regular inventory upon the playe
Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14179 - Spell Changes, New Items and More!
2011/05/25 at 6:11 PM
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!
- 'Nuff said! (
Check it out!
It appears that the pet collection achievements will now offer awesome new rewards!
News Roundup: On Upcoming Raid Nerfs, BlizzCon Tickets, New Support Site
2011/05/24 at 6:38 PM
Just a few new Blizzard posts today after earlier's
major update to the patch notes
, including a clarification on the decision behind the upcoming raid dungeon content nerfs. In addition, Blizzard reminds us of the upcoming (second) sale of BlizzCon tickets, available this Thursday. They've also launched a brand new support site, which allows users to submit tickets via a web interface instead of the clunky in-game method! Sounds awesome to me. :)
On 4.2 Raid Content Nerfs
I'm sure you guys noticed the
massive list of raid nerfs
coming in 4.2, intended to offer players easier access to content that they may not have gotten to experience. Blizzard has certainly learned from their past mistakes in making and then keeping content inaccessible and now wishes to keep content challenging while it's new and then as new content becomes available, gradually move previous content to a PUGable level. Is this a good thing? What do you guys think?
Plenty of people like the challenge, but not everyone has the ability or maybe even desire to be in a guild capable of tackling it right from the get-go.
Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14133 - New Models for Nozdormu, Fire Raven God and More!
2011/05/19 at 4:51 PM
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 , a scorching Overfiend, and a poor guy having a very rough day. Be sure to click the screenshots and check 'em out in our awesome 3D model viewer!

Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14133 - New Items, Spell Changes and Icons!
2011/05/18 at 10:26 PM
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 ! Snazzy!
In addition, we've also got quite a handful of interesting new
, including even more
Tier 12 armor
) as well as updated (ilvl 365!)
New Brewfest Loot!
New Hallow's End Loot!
New Site Feature: 4.2 Encounter Journal Integration
2011/05/18 at 8:26 PM
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.
Ask the Devs #7 Answered, Firelands Next Topic
2011/05/16 at 11:27 AM
Blizzard have just posted the answers to their latest installment of Ask the Devs focusing on
! Not a whole lot of definite details, unfortunately, just a bunch of "yes we're going to add more fun stuff" and "yes we know some professions kinda suck and we're looking at changing that." Still, positive notes all around! We may have new profession daily quests to look forward to in the future (including Archaeology ones!) and Blizzard confirmation that
will indeed be unbound in a future patch (as most similar tradeskill reagents have been in the past).
The next topic should be an exciting one:
! Hopefully we'll find out some awesome new details about the upcoming 4.2 raid!
