** Xal'atath, Blade of the Black Empire has an unusual shape for a weapon - it resembles a sideways "S", with the grip on the inside of one curve, and the blade (of course) on the other. Closer examination, however, reveals that the inner curve of the blade is entirely decorative (for the starter appearance, at least; also the appearance it had before the player empowers it). The outer curve, however, is definitely sharp, and a proper blade. The brilliance? If held "normally", the cutting edge would be ''towards the wielder'', symbolizing that the greatest risk of the weapon is how it will turn on its "owner", or at the least, how it can be (meant to be?) used as a suicidal, sacrificial dagger.

* Gul'dan, when aggroed in the Nighthold, will give a small speech about how Varian begged for his life while kneeling before him and how Vol'jin died, screaming in agony as the fel poison ravaged his body. ''Neither of these things are true''... but Gul'dan is so wrapped up in his belief that he's "Darkness Incarnate" that he's deluded himself into believing that the two leaders of the Alliance and Horde were pathetic, crawling worms before his unstoppable might. This is backed up by his slow VillainousBreakdown throughout the fight - he is completely shocked and ''afraid'' that the raid is not only staying standing throughout his onslaught, they are ''winning'', even though he's empowered himself with a Titan artifact.

* Another creepy vendor trash is the Rusted Canary Cage, found in the Garrison Mine, an allusion to caged canaries (birds) that miners would carry down into the mine tunnels with them. If dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide collected in the mine, the gases would kill the canary before killing the miners, thus providing a warning to exit the tunnels immediately. while it makes sense that you'd find this here, it's rather common... just how safe ''is'' this mine??

* The Demon Hunters aren't the only class who's[[ResurrectiveImmortality]] gets justified in Legion, Death Knights also get it subtly justified. [[Spoiler: Icebringer and Soulreaper retain Frostmourne's soul stealing powers, and your character has to enter the blades to gain control. The PC Death Knight has become a Lich. Even more so, unless you use a spirit healer, you need to run back to your body to revive, and that's where your weapons are.]]

* Starting Demon Hunter PC's at level 98, and chronologically during the attack on Black Temple. After taking into consideration the stat squish, PC stats and abilities at level 98 compared to level 70 health pools and damage, and the coefficients on PvP damage and damage reduction...the PC actually would be on rough parity with a level 70 raid boss, especially considering how ridiculously overtuned Burning Crusade raid bosses were. You even get to see how bad [[ArtificialStupidity]] with aggro mechanics actually are later, during[[spoiler: Illidan's flashbacks]].
