So everyone who ever leveled in Hellfire knows the "oh crap Fel Reaver" feeling. He would come out of no where and kill you as if he had some sort of stealth abilities. Well Blizzard has decided to do something even better.
One of Azeroth's oldest adversaries will soon tear through the Elemental Plane to reforge the world in flame, but this foe won't be conducting his reign of terror from the confines of a castle or lair. Deathwing is a destructive force the likes of which adventurers have yet to see in World of Warcraft, and his appetite for devastation can only be satisfied by the shattering of the world. Following his explosive escape from Deepholm, Deathwing will cast a deadly shadow over the people of Azeroth as he wreaks indiscriminate havoc across the land.
Once free to terrorize the world, Deathwing will randomly choose territories in Azeroth to attack each day until his ruinous reign is brought to an end. A blackened sky will be the only warning before every living creature caught in his approach is consumed by his terrible fire. The unfortunate victims of his malice will receive a rare Feat of Strength... as well as a repair bill and corpse run.
When Deathwing returns, you'd best keep your eyes on the skies.
So you could be randomly do anything from picking herbs, grinding, or ganking lowbies when all of the sudden BOOM. It looks like everyone will have their own "The Day Deathwing Came" stories. It will be something that we will talk about endlessly throughout the expansion. I was just minding my own business when Deathwing came owned the zone and killed the mobs I was farming for that rare pet. What would actually be hilarious is the day of launch, at like 1am, he comes in the starter zone and kills everyone and everything. Can you think of the madness that would follow? All the NPCs and Mobs would be dead. No one could level or do anything except wait for respawns. Now that would be something really epic to remember.
For once people will be proud to display their oh crap moments. Would love a statistic on this "Killed by Deathwing". Enjoy yourselves and tell me what you think.
