I don't know that I'd agree with the points about the 5-mans, but I'm inclined to agree about the Deathwing battles.I partially get the idea that it would have been silly to have a city sized dragon tanked by a single person (though not that much sillier than any of the other 100ft. tall raid bosses we've fought since BC onwards), but I still don't feel we got a proper fight against Deathwing. Peeling off the armour plates was a good start, but then Thrall stole our kill, and we sunk back down to waste disposal. Maybe that makes me 50 kinds of jaded, but if a boss is supposed to be too powerful for mortals to fight, then maybe he's not a well designed boss. I'm absolutely still prepared to be amazed by this game - Ulduar still gives me chills every time I run it, and I can't wait to see what Mists will offer us, but Cataclysm had an uphill struggle trying to make us care about Deathwing, and I don't think it suceeded.It's still just so hard to take him seriously. I know he's supposed to be an apocalypse-level threat, but he just never even seems to make an effort. I get that he feels we're too insignificant to kill, but I'm sorry, considering all we've overcome so far, that just makes him dumb as a sack of bricks. Come to think of it, going through all the lore ever written about him, is there ever any single case of him actually canonically fighting or killing anyone? Ever?
