Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14133 - New Items, Spell Changes and Icons!
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

In addition, we've also got quite a handful of interesting 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.

Ask the Devs #7 Answered, Firelands Next Topic
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!

News Roundup: Dragonwrath Legendary Staff Clarifications, 4.2 Firelands Preview Updated
Just a small handful of Blizzard posts today, as it's the start of the week and we haven't been completely flooded with new info from the Blues (though there have been many welcome additions in the latest PTR patches, as I'm sure you guys have noticed)! As expected, most of the forum discussion has focused around
Гнев Дракона, вечный покой Таресгосы
since it has finally been datamined (with its datamined stats). I'd like to take this moment to remind you guys that (as always)
that has been datamined from the PTR files is subject to change. All of it. Even the things Blizzard says themselves in their patch notes is subject to change. Remember that the Public Test Realms are just that -
realms - and that you may not be seeing the final version of some of these awesome items which are planned to go live. :)

News Roundup: 4.2 PTR Soon, Crowd Control Changes and more!
Things have been a little quiet lately in the wake of the massive amount of 4.2 details Blizzard has shared with us lately, but today we've got confirmation from Zarhym that the 4.2 Public Test Realms will come up "soon" (most likely sooner than we think!), including all of the changes documented in the recently published

! Be sure to get the PTR client downloaded and ready for action - but don't worry, even if you aren't, we'll definitely be there for you guys providing you with up to the minute extensive coverage! :)
In addition, there's a few blue posts regarding dungeon difficulty (seems all anyone can talk about lately) and some clarification on the justification of the 4.2 change to crowd control. Personally, I think this change is awesome and I'm all for it - I've always hated the messiness of coordination and execution of crowd control (involving both friends
strangers) and this change is a welcome convenience. Of course, many players don't agree with the change and are making their opinions heard. Let's see what Blizzard has to say on the matter - and tell us what

Blizzard Reveals Legendary Staff: Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest
Blizzard have finally posted details on the legendary-quality staff coming in Patch 4.2,
Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest
In order to be eligible for the quest chain, a player must first have defeated all encounters of Blackwing Descent, The Bastion of Twilight, and the Throne of the Four Winds, and quest content will require Firelands raid progress (obviously).
Upon completion of the legendary staff, all members of the guild participating in its creation will receive a unique non-combat pet!
In addition to being incredibly awesome (no doubt), the staff also "bestows upon its wielder the ability to transform into a member of the Blue Dragonflight". Whatever this means, it's also incredibly awesome.
What are you waiting for, check out the full preview!
Ever since the death of the Dragon Aspect Malygos, the blue dragonflight has struggled with appointing a new leader. Its members are now torn between the two likeliest successors: Kalecgos, who champions reconciliation with other races; and Arygos, a scion of Malygos who believes that his kind should withdraw from the wo

Blizzard Interview with Lead Encounter Designer Scott Mercer
Blizzard has just posted an interview with Lead Encounter Designer
, including a behind-the-scenes look at the content featured in
Patch 4.1: Rise of the Zandalari
! Of course, most of these answers can now be found in-game but it's still interesting to learn how decisions were made when scaling down the content to support a 5-player format. In addition, Mercer hints that we may see more redesigned classic content in the future of World of Warcraft - including perhaps revamped
Пик Черной горы
Глубины Черной горы
all for that.
In patch 4.1: Rise of the Zandalari, the devastation wrought by the Cataclysm drives the troll tribes of Zul'Aman and Zul'Gurub into a renewed frenzy that threatens to escalate into outright war.
