Firelands Information Released!

Recently mmo-champion posted a Firelands preview with a bunch of pictures; Firelands will be the next raid instance and the second tier of raiding in Cataclysm. There will be seven bosses including Fandral Staghelm, former archdruid of Darnassus; Alysra, a green dragon; and of course Ragnaros the Firelord. In addition to the raid there will also be a new daily quest zone for more rep grinding, yay!

Enough talk, here's some pretty screenshots:
Now for the most ridiculous of all, apparently Blizzard wanted to drastically change the Ragnaros encounter to something completely new and different. In the process of doing so they ruined one of the best modeled bosses in the game; I present to you Ragnaros the Firelord, with legs. 
So, dear readers, tell me, do you like the new Ragnaros? Personally I think he looks ridiculous with legs and the old model was much more badass. He better be really huge, like Supremus huge, or I will be disappointed. Here is the old model if you wish to compare.

  4. the old model is pretty bad ass, and the new one does look a bit top heavy with those skinny little legs.
