Well, at the risk of getting downvoted...Dragon Soul, alone, without any kind of precedents is a great and awesome raid experience. it has some unique encounters that make you enjoy the fights. HOWEVER, DS is not alone, and is not the first WoW raid....and therein lies the problem.I think 2 simple things happened:1. Blizzard over hyped the patch and the raid itself.2. We had ICC.. period.Talk what you want about Wrath, say what you may about the 11+months farming it, BUT hands down Icecrown Citadel is to date THE best raid to close an expansion, and that my friends is very, very hard to top. Just like there will never be another Ulduar, Dragon Soul was damned from the beginning because it was never gonna be as good as ICC, and people were expecting that!

There's definitely some truth to this. ICC came out at exactly the right time with the right elements; it was WoW's "Moving Pictures," its "Leftoverture," its "A Night At The Opera." Other stuff will come out, and some of it might be really good, and some of it might even be empirically better in some fashion, but it'll never be the right time and place again. Arthas is spent, and recycling him could only make things worse. We'll never have a villain that's that good in that exact way again, and that's kind of a shame.
