For me personally it was Arthas, everything that comes after him is kinda pathetic by comparison. I find myself not really giving a crap about Deathwing at all, much like I didn't really give a crap about any of the bosses in vanilla WoW. I don't really know these bosses very well considering Deathwing gets an ass beating the first time we met him, and then it was only really 1 map and then he was gone. The issue with using Illidan and Arthas so early on is that now who are we gonna fight that has such a rich back history ? I mean Queen Azshara is on my list, and The Nightmare, but most of the main characters that I know so well have played there part and now its time to move onto the unknown and me personally I just find myself drifting and not really caring about what goes on in the world because I've killed the enemy I've been waiting for for almost a decade, I don't see how Blizzard can top that for me. So I've just been kinda drifting, waiting to care and if that doesn't happen then I may just not come back until they do give me a boss to fight that I do care about killing.

For those who have played the franchise for a while, Deathwing has been a part of the story in one form or another since WC2... a recognizable name to be sure, event to me, who skipped out on WC3. As is Cho'Gall. Certainly Deathwing has been around causing problems since before Arthas - and I don't mean in out-of-game lore, I mean in Warcraft games.

Yes I'm aware that he's been around cause issues look at his children for gods sake, but that doesn't make me give a rats ass about killing him. I've killed both his kids and I had fun doing that. Deathwing himself however I don't care about killing, yeah he just ripped the world a new one and is in fact an asshole but that doesn't make me care. I find I am missing the drive I usually have which is to murder the ever loving shit outta the "end boss" for the expansion for ruining my day, but so far thats missing, we'll see if the game can make me care or if I'll just wonder through this expansion doing things not related to raiding or gear or any of the normal things I might care about.

Bui, to be honest from what you have said it sounds like the apathy is relative to you as opposed to being a fault with the game. From my perspective I never felt like I had much reason to go after Illidan or Arthas beyond what threat they may become or avenging a grievance of people long dead. With Deathwing however, he ripped my world apart. He did something so massive in the here and now that I feel very strongly about murdering "the ever loving shit" out of him. I mean as motivation goes, there is a giant sweeping vortex of doom where my house, wife and children should be, kinda ranks up there.

Bui, you're an idiot if you think Deathwing was "just tossed back in" to the game. Deathwing has been hinted at as being a far greater threat than any of the previous bosses in all 3 previous incarnations of the game.People aren't downvoting you because you don't like Deathwing. They're downvoting you because you don't know what you're talking about.

@ bui...Actually, you got downvoted because of your negative attitude, rampant use of inappropriate language, and name-calling.If you can't support your points or maybe just restate that it's your opinion, go do something else for a while and calm down. It's only a forum about a game. If it's making you this upset, you ought to go do something that makes you happy for a while.

Exactly, we just don't downvote people we don't like. We downvote stupid people. Though usually they're the same people.

If you need motivation to kill Deathwing do th the Twilight Highlands quests (if you haven't done so already). It's not my intention to give anything away, but there's a certain fight scene at the end that certainly got ME all riled up to kill him.
