** We repeat: The same mount that many people have spent months running through Stratholme to get? You are riding the armoured and redeemed ''soul'' of that mount into battle.

* The Warrior mount questline ends with you receiving your dragon then punching it out when it snarls at you before mounting it.

* Although most of the event is a huge tearjerker, [[spoiler: the Legion laying the Exodar]] to siege is equally awesome. When you take Light's Heart to [[spoiler: the Exodar,]] you find it under a full-fledged invasion of the sort that took dozens if not hundreds of adventurers to handle in groups before finding their Artifact weapons. This time, it's just you and [[TheWarSequence you take the fight to them in a big way.]] As you crush your way through innumerable demon hordes and launch strikes at their commanders, you also rescue civilians, many of whom are children, and eventually overhear [[spoiler: Nobundo]] calling for aid. From there, things only get more awesome as [[spoiler: Nobundo's best shaman]] join your party and you hold off wave after wave of demons in a quest called [spoiler: [[LastStand Nobundo's Last Stand.]]]] Finally, you return to [[spoiler: Velen,]] and he escorts you through fel corruption that would otherwise kill you in seconds. After all that, you throw down with one of Kil'jaeden's top lieutenants, with two of your Champions and [[spoiler: Velen]] joining your party for the brawl. Although it ends in tragedy, getting to go on such a huge rampage against the Legion and doing what it took dozens to do only recently is a great way to show how powerful the Artifact weapons are and how much your character has similarly grown in power.

* The Paladin Legion Mount questline is a giant NostalgiaLevel CallBack to the [[CoolHorse Charger]]-acquiring questline of Vanilla. First, you make a barding, then you imbue the barding with holy light, and only then is it revealed that like in the original questline, you're going to redeem a Death Knight's mount. But this is not just any Death Knight's mount, oh no, you're the Highlord, and so -- instead of going into a long forgotten ruin in Dire Maul to slay an ancient -- you go ''charging through Stratholme itself'' with the Silver Hand at your back, foiling the plans of a necromancer who has taken fellow paladins hostage, and charge right into the tomb of '''''Baron Rivendare''''' himself, shackling the Baron's Deathcharger before bringing it back to Light's Hold Chapel to purify it. The resultant Golden Charger is so overflowing with holy power that its legs are burning with holy fire and it leaves scorching holy hoofmarks in the ground wherever you ride it.

** One moment in particular: [[spoiler: Anduin sees a vision of his father and as he holds Shalamayne, the orb of light within the blade, which was snuffed out when Varian died, reignites. But where it used to be fiery red, it now shines the pure golden glow of the Light itself. Anduin opens his eyes and it's clear that his doubt is gone, the prince has become a King ready to fight the Legion.]]

* The attunement quest for Onyxia aka The Great Masquerade. After a fairly tedious quest chain to convince Marshal Reginald Windsor to escape from Black Rock Depths, you soon meet him outside of Stormwind where he is ready to expose what he has discovered. You walk alongside him through the streets of the city (and inevitably, several other players tag along), while the guard comment on his arrival. It all comes to a head in the throne room, where he exposes Lady Prestor as the black dragon Onyxia. It leads to a massive battle in the throne room with Bolvar Fordragon and what players arrived against a host of elite dragons. Sadly, Windsor dies, but he may have also saved the Alliance. This is later retconned by the events of the comics, however.

* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXwvkV481r4 Death Knight mount cinematic]], an almost shot-for-shot homage to the Lich King raising Sindragosa...

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ck8CTBkQ0lI The King Anduin Wrynn]] cinematic is awesome for multiple reasons but first and foremost for the animation team - the amount of emotion they pack into it is astounding.

** The sequence immediately after Gul'dan's death is a throwback to ''The Burning Crusade'' cinematic. Specifically the ending where Illidan is holding the skull of the original Gul'dan before turning to the camera to address the viewer. It goes so far as to bring back the music from the cinematic. Only this time he crushes the skull in his hands before addressing the adventurers.
--->'''Illidan:''' You have seen what I have seen. You know what we face. Now, mortals...follow me...''into the abyss.''
