*** "Thunderfury, Cursed Blade of the Dramaseeker", "Sulfuras: The Hand of Drama". [[labelnote:Explanation:It was very VERY hard to get them due to the amounts of RNG, and they have been known to cause massive amounts of LootDrama, sometimes even ending guilds when the "wrong person" got the pieces]].

*** Vol'jin didn't make Sylvanas the Warchief, the writers did. [[labelnote:explanation]]Vol'jin was pretty much OutOfFocus when he was the warchief, and rather than promote someone with values closer to the horde (Baine), trusted by the Horde (Baine or Lor'themar), or can bring Thrall back, he out of nowhere picks Sylvanas.[[/labelnote]]



** "I didn't know that Genn could actually ''fight''!" [[labelnote:explanation]]The Alliance Lore during Mists of Pandaria pretty much centered ''entirely'' around the Wrynn family and Jaina, and with the Warlords of Draenor setting being so removed from the events of Azeroth, Genn was basically PutOnABus. so Genn pretty much didn't get to even do much until Legion, when people joked that he could actually fight and were surprised that he got to ''do'' things.]]

* "I really wish they didn't kill off this new 'Prophet Velen' character they added for Warlords before [[spoiler:Killing him off]]."[[labelnote:Explanation]]Prophet Velen, unless one digs VERY deep into the expanded universe, gave players the impression that ever since a single line at the end of The Burning Crusade he has just been sitting in the Exodar not doing anything. The Alternate Universe in Warlords of Draenor has Velen ''dying'' and giving his powers to Yrel.[[/labelnote]]
** "You'd be forgiven for thinking Velen was a brand new character for Warlords of Draenor".

* ARCANITE REAPER! HOOOOOOOO! [[labelnote:Explanation]]In vanilla WoW, Arcanite Reaper was one of the highest-damage non-Epic weapons you could craft as a blacksmith. The line in question comes from a fanmade machinima video.[[/labelnote]]

* [=KaraSpire=] 2014! [[labelnote:Explanation]]At Blizzcon 2013, it was announced that Karabor (Black Temple before its corruption) and Bladespire Citadel (an imposing ogre fortress) would be the capital cities on Draenor for the Alliance and Horde respectively. There were immersive questlines involved in taking these cities; the Alliance would defend Karabor from an Iron Horde onslaught, and the Horde would capture Bladespire from the ogres. The playerbase was generally ''very'' excited for this, but in June 2014, the devs said on Twitter that they had been replaced as bases with two tiny, generic, faceless hubs on the PvP-oriented island of Ashran, located well away from most of the action and largely separate from the overarching storyline of the expansion. This caused an uproar in the playerbase, who had a number of criticisms: the new Ashran hubs lacking anything like the scale or epic feel of the original capitals; the squandering of an excellent way to integrate the draenei better into the Alliance (Karabor was the base of the draenei Exarchs on Draenor); the Ashran hubs being easily attackable by the opposite faction; the bases being almost entirely orc- and human-based, where many players felt the orcs and humans hogged too much of the spotlight from the other races on their respective factions; and the fact that players would have these involved, epic storylines to take or defend these cities, only to later have little to no reason to go back there. Combine that with a flimsy (and almost counterintuitive) story explanation by the developer Lore, and following that the reveal that they had changed their plans soon after Blizzcon ''without ever bothering to inform the playerbase'', and the community went nuts. It led to an extensive campaign (though ultimately unsuccessful) to get the old capitals restored - there was a chain of nearly 40 threads on the topic on the US forums alone, and an extensive hashtag campaign on Twitter, using lines such as #SaveOurCities, #KaraSpire2014, #SaveKarabor, #SaveBladespire, and #Trashran. Months later, the capitals are still a sore point for critics of the expansion.[[/labelnote]]

* Zul'Again / There must always be a Troll Dungeon.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Every expansion until ''Warlords'' added a new troll instance of some kind or another -- Vanilla had Zul'Gurub and Zul'Farrak, Burning Crusade had Zul'Aman, Wrath had Gundrak and Drak'Tharon Keep, Cataclysm revamped Zul'Gurub and Zul'Aman, and Mists had the first half of Throne of Thunder entirely focused on the Zandalari.[[/labelnote]]

** ...but I couldn't, because Hungering Cold has a cast time. [[labelnote:Explanation]] The Death Knight ability Hungering Cold, which freezes all enemies close to the caster in blocks of ice, was deemed too powerful in PvP. Fair enough, but Blizzard's solution of giving it a cast time is one of the most derided Cataclysm balance decisions to date. One of the threads mocking the change was titled "I tried to stop Thrall's assailants..." (referring to a quest where Thrall is attacked while the player character is stunned and helpless), with the post itself reading "...but I couldn't, because Hungering Cold has a cast time." The rest of the thread continued in this fashion before it was [[LostForever regrettably deleted.]][[/labelnote]]
