Patch 4.2 PTR: Nozdormu's mortal form, new Sulfuras revealed


Nozdormu, the leader of the Bronze Dragonflight and notable absent aspect, finally has a mortal form in preparation for the legendary quest line to forge Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest in the upcoming patch 4.2. Nozdormu's model is based on the blood elf and night elf models with modified tier 6 shoulders and some cool tattoos he probably got during one of his time binges out beyond time and space. Let's hope one of them doesn't say "Mom" in Draconic.

In addition to the Nozdormu mortal form, Wowhead News also has models of the new Raven Lord "on fire" version, a more complete version of Majordomo Fandral Staghelm's Druids of the Flame, some 3-D renders of the new "overfiend" enemy from the Firelands (who looks like a baby version of Baleroc), and a human spread out like Bolvar chained up above the Lich King before Tirion bought him that cool new hat.

Another interesting tidbit from this PTR update is the updated model of Sulfuras, which now has nicer textures and more polygons but still retains a healthy bit of the cool factor the original Sulfuras did. One thing is definitely for sure -- Blizzard wanted to make the new Sulfuras very reminiscent of the old Sulfuras but updated, keeping the weapon's heart and soul. To me, the new Sulfuras is a good metaphor for Cataclysm itself.

Check out Wowhead News for the new models and creatures.
