I'm always saddened to read these and not see the mention of the fact the cataclysm meant for the old gods pull on azeroth. Number 1 is death of the destroyer?was number 1 in wrath most important lore event the death of sindragosa?Deathwing was strongest minion of the old gods, but it was still only a puppet, just like chogal. I think the biggest and most important part of the cataclysm is the fact that although we caused the old gods setback, they were still freed by the shattering and at a level of power much greater then they have been since the titans sealed them up. They have established a much stronger influance over the mortals then previously. Maws that can pop up on a whim at wyrmrest. Tenticles all over the world. madness consuming people who live in proximity to old god areas, etc. This is just a beginning and foreshadowing of a large scale problem that will need to be dealt with at some point. It's relevence is the lore is very important.

"Number 1 is death of the destroyer?was number 1 in wrath most important lore event the death of sindragosa?"Not much of a comparison you've got going there. Just because Sindragosa and Deathwing were both working "under orders" from higher powers, so to speak, doesn't make their deaths equally important lore reveals...

Although it's more an event, than a reveal. I'd think we all knew he was going to die.
Doesn't it?Surely that's the point - that making Deathwing the helpless pawn, rather than the actual villain, that it undermines his status?

"I'm always saddened to read these and not see the mention of the fact the cataclysm meant for the old gods pull on azeroth. "I'm going to be honest. I don't know what this sentence means. That being said, Deathwing's significance is much larger than Sindragosa, or even the Lich King himself, because what he set in motion by his actions would have destroyed the entire planet. The Lich King would have probably killed everyone on it, using an army of insanely powerful undead former heroes (the Raid Group that fought him) but there would have been time for others to attempt to mount a defense. The Lich King wasn't going to blow up the entire world. Deathwing was.By his actions, Deathwing literally changed Azeroth forever. It's the significance of that going forward that's important.
