Eh... Just my opinion but I hated it. Maybe I just had high expectations for it since it was the final raid of the expansion, but the fact that Deathwing was dead in the first week it was open and that it was so short and every single model and environment was reused except for Deathwing humself's encounters just made it lackluster... And then even the final cutscenes was kinda like huh? Lich King felt very epic to me and remains my favorite fight. I really felt like we were killing the final boss and when he died it felt great! I just didn't get that... I felt more relieved that the expansion was over and I've since taken the opportunity to take a break from raising. I enjoyed the spine fight, and I'll admit that it had some nice moments, but overall it just wasn't very fun for me.

Ugh... Stupid phone keyboard and autocorrect type-os.

I was disappointed at normal difficulty because many guilds on my realm did finish off Deathwing in the first week. But my largest disappointment was that deathwing never fought back. We only fought adds on his back, or killed his tentacles and beat his exhausted face. That's part of what made the lich king fight so great. His abilities as well as the adds.

I think the reason we got the DW fights we did was because of the (fair) criticism that given the scale of Deathwing, it wouldn't make much sense for us to be tanking him. I think Blizzard did their best, but I too was underwhelmed.

I was a tad disappointed when I beat deathwing on normal for the first time (about 2 months in) because I'd already beaten him on LFR difficulty 5 or 6 times. Not to diss on LFR, I think it's cool, and good that it exists, but it was nowhere near the euphoria I felt when my guild finally downed ragnaros.

I do have to agree that defeating the Lich King felt more epic than it did Deathwing.
