"All our adventuring and sacking of bastions and descents served a purpose. Narratively speaking, the bosses and trash mobs we fight in the lead up to Deathwing himself are a means to call back to the entire expansion to date and clean sweep it away at the same time, to say thanks to you, this is all that is left -- finish them."I feel that too. After finishing the weapons in his disposal one by one, then we get to fight the final boss himself, that does feel like an action movie narrative.

And yet, I didn't get that feeling at all. I'm honestly surprised by that since I'm one of those lore junkies that pays attention to everything written and spoken. I have to admit that my brain never made the connection of "Oh Deathwing has gathered all his forces from the zones I finished earlier."My exact thoughts on it were, truthfully, "Man, more reused models? For the final raid?!" Oh, there's Ozruk again(only bigger), there's General Vezax (and Erudax) again.Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed the raid but I really am getting a bit burned out on the constant reuse of art assets. By all means use it for questing and even for dungeons, but raids should always be unique and have that "WoW!" factor. It's difficult to be wowed by something you've seen 20 times before already.

Well, as Cataclysm was the expansion that re-used a lot of stuff (the 1-60 zone revamps)... the revamp mentality might've come in play for this raid, too.
