    Because it came first.

    Also, Kael'Thas Sunstrider. The first time I saw him Go into his levitation phase was awesome. Had seen it on videos, but to experiance it for the first time was awesome.

    Probally trying to look cool knowing full well about 99% of the WoW players never set foot in naxx40 when current let along reach sapph.
    Makes me think he never saw it till at least lvl70 aswell.

    Shek'zeer is pretty epic in terms of boss fights and "WoW" factor. Same as seeing the Amber Monstrosity come out during phase 2 of the fight immediately before that.

    I haven't done it yet, but I know the Sha of Fear fight will be exactly the same.

    As a lore nerd, the build up to finally killing it has me excited as shit.

    The last time I felt a shiver of epic down my back.

    For the lazy: Just go to 2mins 45 seconds in (or watch the whole thing if you have time)

    This. OP it trying to stroke his epeen. Most players saw saph do the exact same thing in 25 man Naxx not a big deal.

    I only get that feeling when I see something new AND rare. But because everything can be seen quite easily lately a boss never creates such a feeling anymore. Maybe Sinestra cam somewhat close to it, but I didn't really like the whole instance, so.. meh.

    I've never again experienced that no, after we failed a night on Sapphiron 40 I even ported in some hours later just to see that pull again on my own

    Hmmm. How can I reach a person that posts this?

    1. The fight before that took some 40 days for the top players in the world to beat. It was kind of a big deal at the time.

    2. It was the first time they'd had an animation like that.

    3. Back then, seeing a new boss model was a really big deal. Even in TBC only so many people had seen this boss. Seeing a new boss was a milestone for any player back then.

    Not trying to be a condescending jack***, but do you understand now? If I had just said "Remember the first time you saw Sapphiron? Have you felt like that lately?" - then it wouldn't be referencing seeing a new model, a new boss, a hard boss to reach (Heroic-only mode, basically, back then). In WOTLK that was a boss model that was widely re-used outside that raid, and it wasn't a special thing to see him. There was no "OMG guys, we're at SAPPHIRON!"

    Even in TBC, on my backwater server, Kel'Thuzad only went down twice, afaik.

    OT i haven't really had that feeling lately, but one for sure was seeing Raggy emerge from his pool with legs.. i had seen it in videos beforehand but seeing it in person was pretty amazing.
    /headdesk

    I really don't know what to say. I'm not a particularly cool person. I didn't get to see Sapphiron til a few weeks before TBC went away, and that was one of only two times he died before WOTLK dropped on my server. See above for explanation.

    The refusal to do anything other than insist that people must have bad intentions is strong in this thread.

    I really want to see Sindy. That is probably the last 'oh woooah' fight left for me. I enjoy LFR but it kinda does dampen how massively cool some bosses can be. ( COMPLETE PERSONAL FEELINGS, OTHERS MAY DISAGREE! )

    Yogg'Saron and some fights in ICC I was in awe over. Also half of BWL.

    lol, Huhuran 9/10 skill factor while Heigan is at 3/10? No, just no.

    On-topic: the feeling I got at our first C'Thun pull... and everyone died nearly instantly, awesome moment and a feeling of "oh my god this is going to be hard". Basically only got it again on Kael'Thas 25 progress and slightly resembling feeling on Algalon purely based on the awesomeness in looks and time-pressure.

    Heigan required no skill. It was simply run ahead of your latency. If ranged, don't stand too close to the boss. Tanks needed to know timing a little bit, but it wasn't that hard. For the side-room as long as 3 healers didn't get ported it was fine. Not sure why you think Heigan took any skill at all.

    Huhuran on the other hand, with wyvern sting, a balance of nature resist, and it being the first fight that truly required one to care about DPS rotations and uptime-- it was the first of its kind (don't say Vael, that'd be wrong).

    No. No we don't remember the first time we saw Sapphiron 40 man. Because nobody friggin' saw Sapphiron 40 man before TBC dropped.

    I'm sure the number of people who downed Naxx 40 back when it was relevant is in the LOW 4 digits.

    I didnt find it that impressive, 40 health bars dropping at the same time after he spawned was scary as shit though from a healer perspective

    Well, the most epic boss incoming was 40m Nefarian. You kill skellys and then BAM, big ass Dragon lands in epic maner and breath everyone with shadowflame, now that was the most epic feeling for me in WoW.
