Warning: This post is somewhat spoiler-filled, due to describing quests in Cataclysm.
One of the things that happens when people start raiding is that they have to learn situational awareness (being able to move at the right time & pay attention to your surroundings).
One of the Deepholm quests helps teach situational awareness. During this quest, you fight a dragon called “Aeosera”. This is one of those things where paying attention is going to matter. Instead of just allowing you to stand & nuke at the dragon, you have to jump out of the way so that the dragon’s fire breath doesn’t kill you.
So, to engage the fight, you jump up onto some rocks, and go higher up in the air. During the fight, you jump from rock to rock while trying your best to DPS along the way. It’s pretty challenging, but it seems to be doing something that quests haven’t been doing much of before – requiring you to pay attention to what is going on, and not just mindlessly slay mobs as you go along. So, getting exposed to mechanics requiring us to pay attention is something we can learn out on our own soloing around. To complete the quest, you have to actually use some situational awareness skills, OR you can get roasted as you fall to your death. Sounds like fun!
