** If you talk to one of the Sylvari Pact Soldiers resting at Tarir, they confess to the Commander that they're being plagued by [[spoiler:Modremoth's influence. The Commander assures them that they're doing fine and reveals to the said soldier that they were also affected. By the dialogue, it actually reveals that the Commander appeared so resilient that it appeared to others that they were unaffected by Modremoth's control.]] The fact that they're setting such a strong example is amazing in itself.

* While the circumstances are completely awful and nightmarish, being able to see [[spoiler: Scruffy 2.0 in action and all of the upgrades that Taimi has given to him, leading to an incredibly difficult fight against you as you try to free her from Scruffy's cockpit.]]

* Obtaining the hidden mount, aka the [[spoiler:Griffon]], especially for the players who didn't have a guide to work with! You have to use your mounts to their full extent to search the maps for well-hidden [[spoiler:griffon eggs]], spend up to ''250'' gold to get special collection items, and find Sunspears to help out. Then after that, you have to enter [[spoiler:Kormir's library]] to find certain knowledge, which turns out to have been overrun by enemies, so you will have to fight your way through. Then when you're done with that, you have to defeat one boss in an instance map. It will take a lot of time on the player's part, but it will reward the player with the ultimate mount, worth every second and gold spent on this quest. [[spoiler:Flying across every map in the game and soaring to the skies has never felt so amazing.]]

** [[spoiler: You don't even have to use Sohothin. There is an achievement for beating Balthazar without it. Meaning that you can defeat a god with only your own mortal might and teamwork with Aurene.]]

* While [[spoiler:the death of the Pact Commander]] is tragic, it's still awesome. You are such a threat that [[spoiler:the God of War himself decided to ambush you when you are alone to put you down personally. After fighting the elder Dragons, it took a God to finally put the Commander down and it didn't take.]]

!!General Tyria, dungeons and expanded universe:



* The final confrontation against Scarlett Briar. After she uses an explosive that leaves Marjory out cold and burned with Braham limping from injury. Rox can only tend to them due to the severity of Marjory's injuries..leaving the player and an enraged Kasmeer to team up against her. Kasmeer puts her illusionary magic to best use screaming death on Scarlett, allowing you to get in and strike her down before dealing the final blow and putting an end to one of the most notorious villains in player mind considering what she did to the main player hub, Lion's Arch (Which still hasn't been fully repaired nearly a year later).
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDpzAUWmklA The Dragon's Reach: Part 1]]. Not only are things finally heating up, but the final scene definently showcases something that has the potential to be a CrowningMomentOfAwesome if executed well.
* The end of Dragon's Reach: Part 2 involves the PlayerCharacter going up against the Shadow of Mordremoth and driving it away. Alone. In other words, you beat Mordremoth's equivalent to the Shatterer, Tequatl the Sunless, and the Claw of Jormag all by yourself and live to tell the tale.
** To make it even better, your character explicitly compares it to Blightghast, the champion of Zhaitan that took over Claw Island and required the combined efforts of all three Orders to take down. This time, you're stranded alone with the dragon. And you ''win''. But the real kicker? Blightghast also [[spoiler:killed your mentor]]. In a roundabout way, ItsPersonal.

to:

* The very fact that [[spoiler:you managed to claw back to the world of the living after being slain by Balthazar. Even Balthazar himself was surprised to see the Commander up and running once more]]. They had fought [[spoiler:the horrific abomination known as the Eater of Souls, freeing all the souls it had eaten and getting enough power to reanimate your body]]. Not only was this such an incredibly impossible task, [[spoiler:you also walk out on Joko, who had been imprisoned there by Balthazar, who was trying to get you to free him and in trade for your life back (as an Awakened, no less). You basically spit in his face and leave him groveling in the Dominion of the Lost as you return to life another way]]. Now that is epic.
