The Siege portion of the DS I didn't find stretch out too long, in fact I found it to be just the opposite, I found it to be far too small. The whole DS raid in general feels too small and far too symptomatic of classic villianary where the big bad boss throws his lieutenants away one at a time towards a band of heroes. Council type fights, where several generals and what not team up together and attack, or a general is attacking with waves a trash coming in and assisting him. Some of the mechanics used were new, but the feel of the fights was just plain old. Nothing shown didn't seem like anything I hadn't seen before or out of the ordinary.Plainly put, DS was old within the first month after its release. The content was challenging but I was still tired of it before it was even dead. That is uncharacteristic for me. I raid because I actually enjoy raiding, I don't care for loot too much, nor do I care for the titles or mounts. I like to group up with people and taking down bosses. I was plainly sick of this raid within the first three weeks, it didn't feel new or exciting, and despite it having the "main boss" for this expansion, in general the raid felt like a filler raid.I never felt like I was flying during the spine of deathwing fight, I felt like I was on a stationary platform that would kill people if the weight was properly distributed. The world never seemed in peril and the attack on Wyrmcrest temple seemed out of place since Deathwing was mainly intent on finishing the Cataclysm which seemed to need have taken place at the Maelstrom, not up in Northrend. You could use the excuse that he was attempting to prevent the dragon soul from being attuned to be used against him, but if he would have just finished off the Cataclysm then he wouldn't have to worry about that now would he?
