We haven't had an honest to Naaru dragon boss in a while.
No, Galakras doesn't count. First off, it was a proto-drake, and secondly, we all know how dragon bosses work - they're huge, they have tails that do tail swipes, and they usually have several incredibly annoying gimmicks that require us to do something we find annoying. And yet, dragon bosses have been a huge part of WoW
since the original Onyxia raid. And we haven't have one since Cataclysm
. Of course, it makes sense that we haven't - Deathwing wasn't just a dragon, he was the
dragon, really, and along with him came a host of twilight drakes and dragons and after a while, we got burned out on dragon aspects and wanted a break. Mists of Pandaria
was our summer vacation, and it was necessary, but now we're in Warlords
and the old school Warcraft
feel is back.
And nothing says old-school Warcraft
like a few good dragons. I'd like it if it turned out that Draenor had its own dragons, not at all related to the Aspects and Azeroth at all - huge, scaly, fire breathing reptiles with their own special elan. After all, there's dragons on the Dark Portal. Let's get some dragons up in this.
