WoW Moviewatch: The Firelands!

[hide]The Firelands![/hide] is a montage of the new raid instance from [hide]patch 4.2[/hide], called … [hide]the Firelands[/hide]. (So it’s not just a clever name for a movie.) Raid videos aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but this is spectacular first look at the raid animations for folks who haven’t gotten inside the instance yet.

This particular raid video does a great job of spicing up footage with cinematic cutscenes, blending action together, and otherwise focusing on characters and viewpoints. These techniques are especially interesting, because raid videos are usually plain boring. Even someone like me, who loves raiding, can get bored staring over someone else’s shoulders.

Thanks to [hide]Rich Maloy[/hide] from Big Crits for the heads up!
