Literally the exact same thing happened in Dragon Soul and no one enjoyed that finale in the slightest. We fire a giant lazer beam at N'zoth and gg? Not only does his model look awful, but we also get an awful finale to this awful expansion. What's next? We actually kill an old god, defying even more of the established lore?
So many people are talking about anime and how disappointing this is.. when nobody has mentioned that N'zoth straight up "ENOUGH"s us. If not for the HoA, I bet he would have MC'd the raid and teleported halfway across the zone. That one guy who always dies for some reason probably would have gotten a quest to chase down N'zoth.
Why? Literally 1 patch and you kill a fully released Old God...This is lame. N'zoth really does seem like the weakest old god. Kay...
No way this is the complete cinematic. This is rendered by the game engine, whereas the last five expansions ended with a polished machinima cinematic. I'm guessing when it fades to white at the end, the rest of the cinematic plays.
