* It's possible to find and loot a small pebble in the streets of Dalaran - "rubble from when the city was transported to the Broken Shore". It has a very, very faint aura of magic to it, but other than that doesn't ''seem'' to have a purpose... except if, for some reason, you return to your garrison on Draenor and show it to Dog - the same one who followed you from Sunsong Ranch - the canine will sniff it curiously. And then, somehow, Dog will follow you across worlds again, to Dalaran's new location, where he's being cared for in Breanni's pet shop. Just to see you.

* After being given his father's compass, Anduin visits the Broken Shore to see the evil with his own eyes. Reaching the exact spot where Varian met his end, Anduin breaks down in grief and stress, having had no time to mourn, and feeling he is unable to live up to the responsibility of a king and his father's legacy. Greymane -- who had himself recently criticised Anduin for being soft and naive, partly prompting the visit -- takes it upon himself to console Anduin in his darkest hour, and explains the purpose of Varian's heroic sacrifice.

** The above, prompted with a vision of Anduin standing face to face with [[spoiler: his father in the afterlife]] prompts a meek question from Anduin that makes [[spoiler: Varian quickly reaffirm his belief in]] Anduin's ability to lead his people, giving the boy the resolve needed to step out from his father's metaphorical shadow.

* March of the Tadpoles is a "micro-event" where you have to babysit a Murlock tadpole by doing two quick quests (getting it clams, and then slaying a big orca). It gives you a gift in return that can be anything from a rock to a Pretty Pearl; at most, this gift is worth 10 gold, but it's the thought that counts.

* 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.]]

** 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]].
