Here’s an unexpected yet awesome way to show how terrifying a beast can be. In an official Blizzard update on the World of Warcraft forums, it was revealed that the act of Deathwing – the malicious, fire-spitting bastard of a dragon – rising from the depths of the earth only to impose his superiority over the land of Azeroth will be represented in-game by a black sky and entire zones suffering sudden deaths at once.
“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.”
So, there is an achievement to be pursued here, but only by paying the ultimate price… is it worth it?
