Fire mages will find themselves slowly becoming part of the floor, having their individuality gradually subsumbed by the terrible floor hive mind.

NOTES


Jubilant developers announced that with the development of the new Firelands raid zone, they had discovered a new methodology of raid design to bring forth their most difficult floor ever, with the “safe area to complete immolation ratio” clocking in at a staggering 1 part per million.
“It’s called the Firelands, so it only made sense that the flore was more terrifying and dangerous than the actual bosses,” a source inside Blizzard said. “In fact, in Heroic mode, Anthrycist just leaves the area and lets you fight the floor. We’ve got void zones, made of fire, on TOP of fire, that explode if you move. With fire.”
When pressed further, the anonymous developer continued to ramble excitedly. “No, I don’t think you understand. Imagine Ragnaros, only he’s weilding *himself* circa version 1.6. That’s how much fire we’re talking about! YOU HAVE TO STAND IN BAD SHIT!”
When pressed for a loot table for the new encounters, the only response given was, “Looting will explode all nearby party members. The loot will also be on fire.”

    Fire itself is so much win, so this is like win squared…

    I’m guessing the prices on Glacial Bags will skyrocket as Players discover their inability to hold On-Fire loot in the normal bag.

    I think that grinding out frozen orbs will be really important for the firelands. We’re gunna need some powerful ammo to combat the floor.

    Also, Healing rain will become required and probably OP.

    Blizzard has announced early this morning that, following the widespread disappointment after introducing the first “hero class” in WOTLK, the developers have decided to scrap that plan in favor of introducing the new “GOD OF PVP” Class. The first of these classes will be the “Frost Mage.” Blizzard has slowly been moving toward this change in Cataclysm patches, and so far players seem to be responding exactly as developers say they were intending.
    A Blizzard employee, when asked to comment about the new class replied “One of our largest problems in the previous couple patches has been making sure that all of our 10 classes with 3 specs each are all even in both pvp AND pve. During one of our weekly lore development meeting (where we all sniff the sacred “glue of inspiration”) we came up with the brilliant idea of LETTING it be unbalanced. So we all voted on our favorite class, and got to work. To even the field we introduced the Firelands, where, in pve, the frostmage will be refered to as the “SteamMage” and be substantially less useful.”

    A recent news flash from the Blizzard development team, Ragnaros will now set you on fire once you on fire making it so that when you get set on fire Ragnaros sets you on fire once more setting you on fire twice and since you are set on fire twice you will be set on fire X4 and so on and so on until you are on fire so much the fire burns the fire off of you. Or you are incinerated.

    Did Blizz really need to learn from the deadly elevator boss in Blackrock? Oh god, the floor’s going to kill more of my guildies than all the other bosses combined.
