Oh my yes! Absolutely! I remember questing in Azshara and running into Azuregos. In Guild Chat I typed, "Does anyone know why this big blue dragon is over here taunting us?" People in chat told me there was no dragon and I said I was staring at him. So 9 of them came over to see the dragon and kill it. I think the tank lasted 30 seconds. I miss Azuregos' taunts. They were hugely annoying while trying to get those stupid 3 pristine elk horns but once they were removed, the zone became way, way too quiet. And he never seems to be there now, when I go visit. The Shade is there to finish quests but I miss the real dragon. I just did the green shard Eranikus quest chain. I'd do that again in a heartbeat. The guild members who came to help said it was an exhilarating fight and we all realized we missed this kind of battle. There is an epic feel to having to defend a town from something. It's a random event but it can't be soloed. We had several low level druids in Nightfall for training, join the raid group to take Eranikus down because "this is the most awesome thing I've seen". I'd like to see the respawn timer shortened on the current world dragons. I'd like to see them have an escalating hardness, so to speak. Kill one and the other 3 get 10% more HP and one additional ability. Kill 2 and the other 2 get 20% more HP and 2 additional abilities, etc. So, by the time you were at the 4th dragon to kill, she's got 40% more health and 4 more abilities. As with OS + drakes, have their loot table drop better loot depending upon which difficulty you're at when you down them. I also like the idea of being able to call a boss. Hands down, my favorite boss in this game is Tethyr. You want help with Tethyr, you call me. I'll be there as fast as I can. I've often wished you could do a daily that would call Tethyr. Make the called a 5-man or a raid version. You need people to actually take the part of the archers. Once we can fly in Kalimdor, maybe you need people to drop bombs on him. Have a boss who periodically menaces Menethil, Stormwind, Ruth'eran Village and Exodar's docks. Have a flying boss that menaces Orgimmar, Silvermoon, Undercity and Thunder Bluff. Make them killable by both factions, too. I think the key thing though is that the current respawn timer for world bosses is too long. Fel Reaver respawn timers are much shorter than the emerald dragon timers are. This means that fewer people get to experience their fights. We drag all levels with us when we take on a world dragon. Sure, a level 35 dies the minute the dragon breathes but they get to see the fight and cheer us on. I like that aspect of a world boss. It makes the encounter inclusive and more fun. So, bring 'em on, Blizzard. I'm sharpening my pole arm.
