Not rly sure how i feel about having old content back. I kind of looked the other way with Naxx since not many but the hardcore raiders had seen it before TBC came out.I dont like them recycling old content, although id like an updated Azeroth. I guess some ppl wanted old content to be new again, and im curious how many other dungeons will re emerge with new gear.Theres a lot of old weapons though that id love to see updated.http://joekey.deviantart.com/

Using your same logic, a lot of people play the game now that didn't 4/5 years ago when Onyxia was out. Also, even if they did play, they might not have raided then. Personally, I really don't feel like we need old content back. It makes me feel like, "What is important enough to warrant being redone? Will Sunwell come back in the next expansion because a lot of people didn't see it in BC?"In this specific case though, they are bringing back Onyxia for WoW's 5 year anniversary to make it relevant and more of a nostalgia thing because it is a really good representation of WoW.The only thing I can add, relevant to the article, is I wish they don't do what they did with Naxx. LEAVE ONYXIA'S LVL 60 RAID THERE!

what swamp said... LEAVE THE 60 RAID THERE! If Blizz had it so you could enable a level 60 40 man mode, that'd be cool...

There's also a difference between recycling old content and that's all they give us, versus a "bonus" of updating old content. Because this is coming in patch 3.2.2 (which, because of the 5th anniversary stuff, should be in late October or November?) it feels more like a bonus to me. I've never done that whole quest line anyway, i'm late to the party myself. But, it's just the nature of the game that some of that stuff just goes by the wayside and never really gets visited...doubt many people are in Tempest Keep.

Its not just the sword. There's a few biggies that need Ony in classic form. *Her scales are needed for BWL (what about all those toons that want to stop XP at 60, or the people that still have vanilla WoW accounts??).*The scepter quest chain. I ran in last night to finally get the draconic for dummies book...what happens with that chain for those who want to complete it?*We've already lost the original Ony quest chain which was quite simply one of the best in WoW...kinda makes me sad as my money says they won't keep the old quest items in the drop list. just like the took out hte Frozen Runes from Naxx v2 :(

Think about this too though: There *is* no Ony chain with Varian in SW now. Lady Prestor is gone, and for some unknown reason there's this cave with this big honkin' purple-black dragon in the middle of Nowhere-Land. If they retune and update a reason for her to be there, it at least ties up a loose end for that chain being snipped.
