Heilig is right about the Lich King.. He reminds me of Dr. Claw from Inspector Gadget or something... By the time you're on the home stretch of the Icecrown quests you practically expect him to show up every five minutes and kill whoever you're helping (or whoever failed to kill you), then conveniently ignore you or make a lame threat before disappearing. HE GETS DEFEATED BY SOME ROCKS at the end of HoR for crying out loud. I swear I heard him saying, "Curses, foiled again!" I know the devs repeatedly said they wanted players to feel more closely involved with the Big Bad for each expansion after feeling like there was a disconnect in BC, but I think they made Arthas too familiar and sorta neutered him in the process. And I really still think that raids are pretty epic. Tell me you didn't wig out the first time the ground broke away in EoE (You know, before you completely and totally hated the dragon-riding mechanics). Hell, there are some quests that feel really epic... The Wrathgate, telling old sourpuss that his kid was dead, and then helping Thrall and Sylvanas reclaim UC was amazing the first time through.I will admit that I don't get the same charge out of some of the encounters in the game that I used to... I can vividly remember my heart pounding when my Pally finally got his charger after about 12 disappointing trips to scholo. The first time I saw Rag, my guild was farming him to gear up alts and newbies for BWL but I was still awestruck. This sort of thing should be expected. This game is incredible, but after playing for over 5 years, I'm just not as easily impressed. I'm still here, still loving it and really looking forward to the hopeful reintroduction of skill in Cata... I'm cool with everyone having access to raids, just really tired of the gear score pugs and perpetual expectation in heroics that every tank has to have 40k health and all of the other silly crap you see.
