"a brief bit of lore about why exactly you're fighting them"Personally I like and dislike this idea. I love the idea of adding lore to bosses. Looking at ICC it feels that we only fight the bosses because they just are there.Difference between ulduar and ICC was that in Uld you had WHOLE NORTHEND with stories leading to them. Yogg in grizzly and "black blood of yogg-saron"(saronite), Freya at basin, Hodir/thorim at stormpeaks, bit of mimiron and razorscale in the mountains too etc.What did ICC have on lore leading there? Bloodqueen, princes, LK himself, sindragosa on minor part apart from the freaking log-in screen and deathbringer from the awesome cinematic. Nothing else. Who is festergut? Putri? What happened to dreamwalker? Why they wanted to get dreamwalker? What a heck is marrowgar? Noone will know.The reason why I sorta dislike it is that it might end up at some bosses that "generic boss fight with wall of text "rather than "ok lets make super chain on zone X to introduce the boss and its lore"". This is ofc raiding mostly.More lore to raids is good. Things like sunwell had nice lore bits thats why I felt kinda sad that only hardcore saw it at the prime that might not care about lore

Massive agreement here. Fighting Hodir, Freya and Thorim was pretty awesome because we'd heard tons about these guys while questing. Or in the case of Thorim, quested WITH him. Though Putricide and so on in Icecrown were cool bosses, they just didn't have that backstory. The feeling just isn't as awesome.

I'm just glad that I'll have something to read while that one person in your raid group is STILL on their way to the fish feast. My god, what are they doing, running to ICC from Darnassus? Also, I won't miss the ninja /readycheck while I'm alt tabbed out looking at wowhead anymore. win win situation all around.
