I hadn't realized it in the time since, but apparently it's my 5th anniversary with WoW as well. I got my copy a bit later in the day, but got cracking on the installation and registration right away, it seems!My fondest memory remains my first encounter with Mr. Smite in Deadmines, and every single boss encounter in WoW since then has been a disappointment.The fights may be more challenging, demand more of me as a player, but they all pale in comparison to the absolute awe I felt when I discovered that encounter. The ambushes involved, the voice acting, the stun while he takes his time to get a new weapon - all of it making me feel like I was experiencing something new and unique - has yet to be replicated for me. Part of it is due to all the spoilers posted about the big raid encounters, but it's easy enough to get around that by using the cool encounters in 5 mans instead. But none of the 5 man fights since that time have managed to make me feel like I was as synched up with my character as that experience did.
