* Even though the context of the scene is rather tragic, [[spoiler: Vol'jin naming Sylvanas his chosen successor as warchief has undertones of this. He admits he never trusted her, (or probably ever even ''liked'' her) but he praises her for coming through for The Horde in its hour of need, basically admitting that she is the person he believes The Horde needs to hold it together through one of its darkest hours. The icing on top of it all is Sylvanas doesn't even seem ''pleased'' about being placed in charge of the entire Horde, (like you might expect her to be) and she simply stares at Vol'jin in shocked silence as he expires. Even as the other Horde faction leaders respectfully carry their now deceased leader out in silence, Sylvanas just stands there.]]

times.
** Heartwarming and a tearjerker: The variant of the {{leitmotif}} of the expansion, ''O Thanagor'', used for the ending cinematic, ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EV46qFZrOzk Invincible]]'', is about Arthas' horse. [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes Arthas really loved that horse]].

* In a twisted sort of way, the finale of the Death Knight class storyline to this point. With the plan to [[spoiler:raise Tirion Fordring as the commander of the new Four Horsemen having failed, and the power within Light's Hope Chapel poised to destroy the Deathlord and the first three of new Horsemen]], Darion Mograine, who had disagreed with the plan but went along with it anyway, opens a death gate and holds it for [[spoiler:everyone else to escape, at the cost of his own life.]] This allows him [[spoiler:to be reanimated as the commander of the new Four Horsemen]], of course, but the important part is that Darion, [[spoiler:who even after the Ebon Blade was freed from Arthas's controll had always acted as the perfect cold-blooded death knight, gave his life to save others, and ensure that the Ebon Blade would survive to protect Azeroth--at least until the Legion is defeated. In effect, he proved that death knights might be monsters, but they can also be heroes]].

* The draenei quests on Bloodmyst Isle. After a long grind through multiple quest chains, you're congratulated by the head of the small settlement for all your hard work, and he informs you that because of you, your exiled people will forever have a home. Par for the course, but then you turn to leave the building... and everyone you helped on your quests, from the injured soldier you helped clear a safe path back for to the elekk stablemaster you ran errands for, is there, applauding you - complete with one of the leaders of the dranei, who's come all the way from the Exodar to thank you personally. '''ManlyTears'''.

* The tomb of King Terenas Menethil II, last true king of Lordaeron, was built not by the Silver Hand nor the Forsaken. It was built by the former citizens of Lordaeron, who risked their lives so that his memory would not be forgotten.

* In Suramar City, there's the occasional Nightborne that's clearly starving. Players have the option to give said elves a bit of ancient mana in return for a 10% health buff. The name of the buff? Empathy.

* 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.
