Jan 19th 2010 12:11PM I didn't even think of that, but now that you point it out I totally agree!
Of course, if she was subtlety, she'd be even more like Oasis with http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=31230

Dec 31st 2009 11:39AM It might just be a thing about my realm (Gnomeregan is relatively casual-heavy), but I don't think I've ever had a group in there where everyone actually knew what they were doing. Instead it usually was something like... one had never set foot in the instance before, one had been there before but their group had disbanded before finishing, a third had cleared it but had been walked through and didn't really know the strategy, and the fourth was more experienced but mixed up the last boss strategy with the Malygos phase 3 strategy.
The average Oculus group might have improved since 3.3 brought raiders back down to heroics, though.

I see what you mean. You do sort of wander off away from Naxx at like lev 74 with no lingering threads such as a red quest saying to come back later and kill KT. Usually you do all the quests in an area and afterward you typically have a few dungeon/raid quests, some of which might still be red so you need to level up a bit and come back later to finish them. It is odd that they didn't do anything like that for Naxx. They told the story very well in my opinion they just didn't include any quests to bring you back at 80 which was a bit of an oversight.

The whole quest hub in wintergarde keep starting with http://www.wowhead.com/?quest=12235 is all about the fortress being under attack from Naxxramas.
The subplot with Thel'zan's phylactery explained how Thel'zan (formerly Father Inigo Montoy) had betrayed the alliance by returning Kel'Thuzad's phylactery to the Lich King and enabling Naxxramas to be restored.
The commanders on the battlefield around Naxxramas not only 'chatting vaguely' about Naxxramas but they have holographic visual aids and give elaborate presentations discussing the bosses in great detail.
If you were blindsided by Naxxramas, you must simply be blind.
