* Anther very rewarding (as in, heartwarming wise), is where you have to plant a seed that sprouts a new Protector. It's very hungry when it sprouts, and can barely talk, so you have to find it food and clean soil. Then it can talk clearer, and needs sunlight. ''Then'' it seriously feels like kicking monster butt, so by all means, help it find them! The way it talks to you through all this, the way a WellDoneSonGuy would do to a father, can make a player feel pretty great.

* Any quest that involves helping or saving children can be this. For instance, in Westfall (where most citizens are poverty-stricken due to the Cataclysm), there's a quest where you have to gain the ingredients for Westfall stew; if the children cheering for you when you finish it doesn't melt your heart, something's wrong.

* Small example, in Shatter Scar Vale, there's a quest where you have to "clean" (as in, purify) squirrels who are tainted from swimming in polluted water. When you do so, they give you a kiss on the cheek.

* In Highmountain, a tauren sends you to find his lost baby son, Moozy; he's too injured to keep searching, and his wife is checking upstream. Of course, you find the baby in a basket and reunite him with his parents... But one player went and created [[http://rhovinthorne.tumblr.com/post/149816288466/rhovinthorne-rhovinthorne-rhovinthorne this adorableness]] out of the experience.

* Partway through the Highmountain questline while following Huln Highmountain's past, you learn a truth about Spiritwalker Ebonhorn. [[spoiler: He is an uncorrupted black dragon actually called Ebyssian that was rescued by using the Hammer of Khaz'gorath to purify his egg. In thanks Ebonhorn has been watching over Huln's descendants all this time.]]

* Even after the complete tragedy that was the Broken Shore, with the Alliance and Horde back at one another's throats, with [[spoiler: Varian dead and Sylvanas Warchief, with Genn and Jaina pushing for all-out war on the Horde]] and [[spoiler: Tirion Fordring, one of the few remaining voices of peace]] dead, the heroes of the Alliance and Horde still band together for the invasion events, with Horde and Alliance alike going to Sentinel Hill, Kharanos, Tarren Mill, the Crossroads, and even ''the rear gates of Orgrimmar'' without so much as an issue (aside from the occasional scuffle breaking out once the dust settles), and the commanders coordinating the defense such as Gyran Stoutmantle, Saurfang, and Helcular show only respect to the defenders regardless of faction, calling on their shared love for Azeroth to inspire them. It's moments like that which give hope that one day, Azeroth ''will'' present a united front against the Legion and be just as unstoppable as they were against the armies of C'thun back in the day.

* In Durotar, you can find [[spoiler: Tyrathan Khort watching Vol'jin's funeral pyre from afar. He honors his friend so much that he's willing to infiltrate enemy territory where he'd almost certainly be killed if found to attend Vol'jin's funeral. And he fully intends to avenge Vol'jin's death to honor the pact they made.]]

* [[spoiler: When Magni awakens, he ''finally'' acknowledges Moira's hard work as part of the council and that he was aware of all the things she had said to him. The acknowledgement moved Moira to shed a tear as her father sets off to Ulduar.]]

* The climax of Anduin's prologue comic are this and awesome. His own thoughts are interspersed with dialogue and Varian's [[spoiler:final]] letter.
-->''Dreadlord'': But there is another way.
-->''Letter'': Anduin, I now believe as you do...
-->''Dreadlord'':Peace.
-->''Letter'': ... is the noblest aspiration.
-->''Dreadlord'': You cannot fight and win. Join us. [etc...]
-->''Anduin'': You're right. I'm a man of peace.
-->''Letter'': But, to preserve it...
-->''Anduin'': [[spoiler:And the Wolf is gone forever. I am the '''Light''' that remains.]]
-->''Letter'': ... you must be willing to fight.
-->''Anduin'': [[spoiler:And I will finish this. ''Anduin proceeds to obliterate the dreadlord in one shot with a Smite'']]
-->''Anduin's thoughts: [[spoiler: Yes, I changed my father. But he also changed me. Will that be enough [to save] the Alliance? For Azeroth? It will have to be. There '''will''' be peace, one day.
** In the Madefire motion-comic version, this is made even better by a swell of the heroic version of Anduin's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6ua3DAw36o new theme]].
