Default Deathwing and Azshara's character suffered from being the Old Gods' servants

They have the power and characterization to be the independent "big bad". However being some "bigger bad's lieutenants really damaged their characters. As the antagonist, you can suffer defeat, but you can't keep stay as someone else' servant without breaking free.

I think that's one of the reasons ppl like the Lich King, because he had successfully freed himself from the legion by using his scheme.

Blizzard obviously realized it so they made that short story, but it didn't improve the status too much. I bet Azshara will suffer the villain decay after this battle.

The best villains are those you secretly like.

Storywise, they didn't give us anything to like about Deathwing, and our impressions of his badassery are all atmospheric more than direct. He wasn't a villain as much as he was portrayed as a force of nature, and that's not very interesting.

Azshara should also be likeable but she isn't. She has no stake in the story and she's twirling an invisible mustache for reasons absolutely unknown to us, so it's just a mess.

I don't even care if they have masters or not, they're just not interesting and they lack depth.
