    Oh, it'll be funny. BEWARE ARROGANT MORTAL FOOLS, SEE MY TRUE POWER! And then he shifts to a whelp, looks at his own body, makes -derp- face and flies away.
    LF something funny to place here.

    So my original question still stands: How LONG are dragon years anyway?
    He isn't 2 in DRAGON years, he is 2, as in it has been 2 years on azeroth since he hatched IN CATA

    Keep in mind here we are talking the years that passed Lore wise, not release dates

    He hatched shortly before events that happen in the dragon soul raid.
    The First landfall on Pandaria was Roughly a year after deathwing's fall.
    The Pandaria Campaign was about 3 months later.
    The Thunder King Campaign started a few months later, which is when Anduin and Wrathion talk and when the age comes up.
    So its been about 2 years from the hatching to this quote
    Anduin Wrynn says: Are you lecturing me? You're what - two years old?
    Wrathion says: Two in DRAGON years. It is your move.
    Two in Dragon year doesn't mean dragon years are LONGER, but that Dragons mature faster then humans do.
    Also it was Wrathion making a Joke about that fact.

    I was evil when I was 2 years old too...then I grew in an awesome sexbeast.

    Dog years are real, it's supported by all vets and scientists in the world, however humans don't have the right perspective about dog years. It's related to health, physical and emotional maturity. It varies per race, size and breed of dog, small dogs generally grow older compared to big ones and they also age in a lesser extent than the bigger dogs. Why do they even use dog years? :

    Well a dog hits full maturity around the age of 2.5-3, when looking at humans that's around the age 16-18. Every year past the dog maturity year, they have a steeply increasing chance to get illnesses (Cancer, Tumors), for a human that point is around 60-70 years, for dogs it varies, from 5 to 10 years. So basically what they did is make a graph that connects those points, and found the median to determine the actual (health) age of the dog.

    Pretty much this. He's still fighting to keep Azeroth safe. Just in his own way.

    What proof do you have that he hatched shortly before Dragon soul?

    Skip to about 1:20 for the actual conversation. There is no joking going on in that conversation. In fact, Anduin is making fun of Wrathion for questioning his ability to lead the alliance after his father by making fun of him being 2 years old, to which he replies in a somewhat irritated manner that he is 2 in DRAGON years, which indicates that a dragon year is much longer than a human year.

    He hatched after the shattering in some quest in ravamped world? Doesn't that mean he hatched shortly before DS?

    Well he didn't really hatched during those quests, his egg was just taken somewhere else.

    He would make a pretty poor raid boss based solely on the fact he still uses a cute dragon whelp model :P

    I dunno, the only way i can see it is that kinda like in Watchmen, you need a worldwide threat to stop infighting. But after living through 2 of them in the last 2 expansions (and vanilla if you count might of kalimdor), it's pretty clear once we unite against any worldy threat that we then go back to killing each other.

    This quest which was added in the patch that added dragon soul
    To Catch a Thief
    Which takes place after The Egg Lives On added in cata
    Which is the end of a long chain where you purify a black dragon egg. HIS egg!
    Seriously please read up on the existing lore of Wrathion, a good place to start would be Wowpedia's Wrathion article
    The real problem is the way blizzard wrote the line, it should have been "In your years but not in dragon years."

    Was it ever detailed that it happened during that quest? I had a feeling that it happen some time before the start of the rogue quest.

    Yep, it has nothing to do with his suspicious dialogue, or his thirst for power, it's because he's a black dragon!

    /end sarcasm

    I could see Wrathion being a boss but I'd rather he wasn't, at least not for now. He's very interesting as an ally right now.

    He's not a whelp, he was magically aged. I don't know how old he is, but I think if he shifted to dragon form he's at least be a drake if not a full-on dragon.

    Not yet, he said he'll stop at nothing to prepare Azeroth for the coming conflict so perhaps he'll do something drastic.

    well no but the first quest in the chain "Proving Your Worth" is from the red dragons and the state of urgency of the egg was recently stolen, and the red dragons still think he is an egg up until you find him and you do see the cracked empty shell right behind wrathion when he says
    Wrathion says: That's right, mortal. The prize you seek no longer sleeps within a shell. Here I am: in the flesh.
    so he hatched some point between "Proving Your Worth" and the end of "To Catch a Thief"

    He has shifted to "dragon" form and he was a whelp. Sorry to burst your bubble.

    Ah I see, I don't have a high level rogue so I had to find everything out through WoWpedia and videos so I must have missed that. Thank you.

    Wrathion cannot be a "filler raid" boss. A filler raid would have a random non-lore significant character.
