* IfIDoNotReturn: Alleria asks Verana to give a message to Sylvanas and Vereesa, as well as two of the pendants made from their family necklace, if Alleria does not return. While Alleria has become a DeathSeeker, she does correctly point out that it's reasonable to consider the possibility that she might not come back (especially since she doesn't actually return until the ''Legion'' expansion of WorldOfWarcraft).

* DeathSeeker: Alleria.

to:

* DeathSeeker: Alleria.Alleria almost completely loses the will to live in her quest for revenge. Khadgar and Turalyon call her out on it.
-->'''Khadgar''': You don't want to fight, Alleria, you want to die.

** Khadgar gives one to Alleria as a friend.
-->'''Khadgar''': You don't [[BloodKnight want to fight]], Alleria, [[DeathSeeker you want to die]].\\
'''Alleria''': What do you mean?\\
'''Khadgar''': We've all seen it. [[LeeroyJenkins You rush out there]], on fire for blood. On fire for your {{revenge}}. That's why Turalyon keeps ordering you to stay close, and sometimes not even go out at all. He's afraid he's going to lose you.\\
'''Alleria''': I am not his to lose. I belong to no one but myself.\\
'''Khadgar''': You don't even belong to yourself. You belong to the dead. Joining them won't bring them back, Alleria. There's a good, kind, intelligent man right here in this keep who could teach you a thing or two about how to live. You should try living for a change- opening yourself to something rare and wonderful instead of slamming doors.\\
'''Alleria''': [[WhoDares How dare you say such things to me]]! It's none of your business! Why do you care how I choose to live my life?\\
'''Khadgar''': [[ArmorPiercingResponse I care because I don't get to choose]]!
** Ner'Zhul gets one from [[spoiler:Kil'Jaeden, mocking Ner'zhul for thinking he could escape his master, using magic he doesn't understand and claiming to care about his people]].

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Deathwing takes the mass killing of his children ''very'' badly.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: As covered elsewhere, Deathwing's real name isn't Deathwing at all. It's Neltharion. Deathwing is just what he goes by.



* FantasticRacism: Alleria positively drips this. Turalyon who was pretty racist in the previous book is appalled by her actions.

to:

* EvilOldFolks: Ner'zhul dances around this trope for a while before eventually becoming it in full.
* FallenHero: Ner'zhul goes from being one of the wisest and most celebrated orcs in recent history to a selfish, ultimately uncaring old jackass.

* PragmaticVillainy: Gruul doesn't really give a damn about being moral; he just doesn't want the black dragons muscling in on his territory.



* TheQuisling: King Perenolde to a despicable degree.
** Amusingly, his own son gives him a WhatTheHellHero speech about it.

-->'''Ner'zhul''': Gul'dan and his twisted schemes -- they reach out and destroy lives, even from beyond the grave! You and your plans! And how much power would you gain from success? Power is all you Shadow Council bastards care about!



* TheWorfBarrage: Gruul delivers a huge punch to Deathwing that knocks down the smaller Gron from the shock of it, and Deathwing isn't even phased by it.
* TheWorfEffect: The Gron are built up as huge and menacing, getting through rocks on the way to Deathwing's lair by smashing them... and when Deathwing shows up, [[OhCrap he knocks them around by beating his wings]].

This justified, though by the fact that Deathwing is the greatest of all black dragons, and thus a ''little'' more powerful than his

* BigBad: Subverted. Ner'zhul is nothing like the Lich King who destroys Arthas' sanity and unleashes the Scourge on the world. He's a weak, broken, and half-sane shell of a once great man.

* OhCrap: Turalyon and Khadgar this reaction to seeing Deathwing after they and the gronn attacked a number of his children.
* OurGiantsAreBigger: This book goes into details on how big the [[OurOgresAreHungrier gronn]] are, and that Gruul is even bigger.
* {{Retcon}}: With regards to the gronn driving out Deathwing and his children. The earlier lore stated their sheer power and greater numbers drove them out. This novel changes so that the dragons they killed were extremely young (full grown ones that appeared in the rest of the WarcraftExpendedUniverse are MUCH bigger than them), and Deathwing mopped the floor with them with the gronn only surviving because Khadgar break some of the metal plates holding Deathwing's body together, forcing him to retreat.


Added DiffLines:

* SmugSnake: Deathwing, so much so that the orcs often can't tell if he's insulting them.
