A few weeks ago I had messaged JD over RealID about how possibly Blizzard has been getting us ready to fight Deathwing this whole time.
What I mean by that, is that I remember we were killing Onyxia and Nefarion in original WoW. We first encountered Nefarion in Upper Black Rock Spiral in the timed event area. We met Onyxia in Stormwind but she was masquerading as Lady Prestor.
Granted I really did not quest very much in BC but JD did remind me that there were dragons from the black dragonflight being killed.
During Lich King, they brought back Onyxia so there was a chance to kill her again plus Obsidian Sanctrum.
Now during Cataclysm, we the players now have the chance to kill off Deathwing himself.
It is for those reasons that I truly believe that Blizzard has had plans for the death of Deathwing since origianl WoW. This is my opinion. I remember that JD had a different opinion on this same subject though.
I guess it just goes with what a person wants to believe and remembers. I remember the whole quest line for getting the neck piece/trinket for doing level 60 Onyxia’s lair. Getting attuned for Blackwing’s Lair.
I am just wondering about anyone else’s opinion about Blizzard having had plans this whole time and preparing us for Deathwing.
