** And the fact that Chen blithely leaves his young niece to be essentially baby-sat by you has some potential for [[BlackComedy dark hilarity]]. Your character could be anywhere on the alignment spectrum depending on how/if you roleplay, from a noble and spiritual shaman to a baby-eating warlock (or vice-versa!). Of course, Chen is a martial arts expert badass that makes [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda Po]] look like [[Film/KungPowEnterTheFist Wimp Lo]], so [[PapaWolf woe betide any who try to harm his family...]]

*** In one quest that randomly pops up, you notice that a stockpile of Earthen Ring supplies has been rummaged through, and have reason to suspect that it was the work of the Grimtotem tribe because one of their members is nearby still stealing from it.

** One vignette mob encounter is triggered by grabbing a pile of gold with a sign reading "[[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial Definitely not a trap.]]", which is a trap set up by a group of adventurers who try to kill you for your gear. Like the P.U.G. example above, they're stereotypes of the typical uncoordinated PUG; the mage blames the paladin, the hunter complains that he got no healing, the priest refuses to take responsibility for their inability to heal, the rogue wonders how you saw him, and the paladin says that he shouldn't have let the hunter pull.

** Illidan gets a few lines worth a few chuckles, weather it be calling Tehd Marius's Pet Warlock, or Amal'thazad the Ebon Blade's pet Lich. Also, try to take him seriously when he says the word 'baubles'.

** Azsuna's balloon ride is given by a goblin who tries to charge an exhorbitant rate while in the air. His plot to extort you is foiled by his oaf misunderstanding directions and putting fireworks on a grill.

"The impatience of youth. A craftsperson is only as good as his or her materials and the - let's face it - garbage you've been using thus far is a core reason why you look more like an accountant from Stormwind than a potential legend. Think ahead - when they make paintings of you, the cut and weight of your clothign or armor will echo through history. Is that not what you've always wished for?"\\

*** The Obliterum quest starts with the player taking dust from a burnt wagon to various professions. The alchemist chews the player out as he (correctly) thinks it has something to do with the ''smoldering corpse'' in his doorway.

** Trillax, the third boss of the Nighthold (sort of an {{expy}} of the Caretaker from ''VideoGame/WildStar''). A malfunctioning Nightborne construct (ie, a giant robot) this guy acts and talks like TheJeeves, but has three personalities that determine whether he acts like a normal Jeeves, a FauxAffablyEvil Jeeves, or a sociopathic AxCrazy Jeeves. He goes berserk and aggros on the players because they're making a mess (actually, they're fighting {{Muck Monster}}s that just exploded and coated everything) and yells at you not to bleed over the floor. The guy is a riot.

--->'''Caretaker:''' The master has returned! We must ensure the household is immaculate.\\
'''Cleaner:''' That's not the master, imbecile! Unless he managed to claw his way out from under two tons of solid stone.\\
'''Maniac:''' Ooo, that would be impressive... considering I still have his hands in a jar.\\
'''Caretaker:''' Please don't say such things! The master is back, and things need to be kept tidy.

* An Alliance quest in the Wetlands involves the player finding and recovering Surveyor Thurdan's dumpy level. ("What's that look for? That's right! [[ICantBelieveImSayingThis I said my dumpy level!]] It's a piece of significant surveying equipment! I didn't name the bloody thing, alright? Go look it up!")

* Maximillian of Northshire is a blowhard knight in Un'Goro Crater, who hires you as his squire. You join him as he helps three fair maidens... [[spoiler:(by chucking one off a cliff to save her from being trapped, killing another's pet bird because it was an "evil phoenix", and retrieving the purse of the last one, a very insulted male blood elf)]] Later, you help him slay evil "dragons" (dinosaurs) until you anger the "Dragon Queen" (actually the Devilsaur Queen) and are forced to flee her wrath on Maximillian's horse... and try to defeat her by chucking rocks, which doesn't work out so well. Eventually, Maximillian gets desperate and [[spoiler:takes off his armor until he's down to his boxers... and asks you to chuck the armor at the rampaging dinosaur]].
** Maximillian is a parody of Literature/DonQuixote. One of the rewards from his quest chain is a toy windmill, a reference to his status as a WindmillCrusader.

*** Once the Broken Shore campaign reaches a certain point, you're able to recruit an additional champion for all classes; pallies can get an extra one if they quested through Un'Goro. Remember Maximillian of Northshire? ''He's back''... and just as crazed as ever. He mentions slaying some vicious demons while armed only with a stick; the player responds with "what, you mean those two crabs?", after which he chides you for being unable to recognize demons. Of course, because ''you'' are his squire, you have to run menial tasks for him, like recovering his armor after his shipwreck [[note]]including such items as [[OneHandedZweihander Gauntlets of Huge Grasping]] and [[ShouldersOfDoom Spaulders of Hugeness]][[/note]], rank up enough become a "Squire, First Class" [[note]] the buff says "whatever that means", [[/note]] by slaying more "demons", recover his artifact weapon "Excaliburto" [[note]] "It's not actually an artifact," [[/note]] ''complete with watching him get a toast, like the player character'', go to Dalaran to save his beloved Doloria [[note]] A goblin lady whose first response is "I didn't think he'd find me again so quickly," [[/note]] from her "hostage situation" [[note]] she's relaxing in the Legerdermain Lounge [[/note]] by going and fighting elite Ettins south of Thunder Totem to recover her jewelery [[note]] The ettin's ''teeth'', and once more he displays a singular disconnection with reality, [[/note]] as ransom, only to come back and be unable to recognize Doloria because she's wearing a cheap Hallow's End Troll mask and calling herself "Doloris". After ''[[LongList all that]]'', and a little bit of asking the room if they've seen "Doloria" while everyone makes fun of him and you, he tells you that you will join him as ''his'' champion, and he will send you off on missions and you will fight at his side. At which point, yes, you ''finally'' can recruit him.
