The only tool that you’ll need for developing WPF (version 4) applications is Visual Studio 2010. You can download Visual Studio 2010 Express for free. (For a single development language).
To develop applications in other languages and for other platforms (e.g. 64-bit), or to take advantage of other advanced features, you’ll want a paid version of Visual Studio 2010.
To get more advanced functionality for designing user interfaces, you’ll also want Expression Blend 4.
