* Varian Wrynn, King of Stormwind, was MIA throughout all of ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' and its first expansion. Ruling in his place was his nine-year-old son. In ''Wrath of the Lich King'', he's back and [[TookALevelInBadass became an incredibly skilled warrior]]. And also BrokenBase. Characters who were confirmed dead are also strangely not dead, but not undead. Why? [[strike:Probably to flesh out the expansion]] Because they were just that tough. [[StayingAlive Or something]]. ([[GameplayAndStorySegregation Possibly]] they used one of the [[DeathIsCheap numerous resurrection spells]] or walked to the [[DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist Spirit Healer]].)
