Added DiffLines:

** As if sort of apologizing for this one, patch 7.1 introduced [[https://wow.gamepedia.com/Quest:Something%27s_Not_Quite_Right%2E%2E%2E a quest]] that allowed the players to take revenge against the nightborne loyalists by subjecting them to the same treatment. Now, if only there was a repeatable version of this...
** Also referenced in an Argus quest that puts you in stealth, with ethereals saying "[[https://i.redd.it/5bdugc3i4cmz.png A dissimulation? What are you concealing?]]"

!!General



* Lapdogs! All of you![[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by Van Cleef [[KilledOffForReal (R.I.P.)]] upon knocking his HP down far enough. Unfortunately, not repeated by his daughter.[[/labelnote]]
* Blades of light![[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by Champion Herod, final boss of the Scarlet Monastery Armory, when he uses his InstantDeathRadius. For older players, it's synonymous with "get away from the boss NOW".[[/labelnote]]
* I'LL RIP THE SECRETS FROM YOUR FLESH![[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by Interrogator Vishas, the first boss of the Scarlet Monastary Graveyard and now final boss of Rank 1 of the Brawler's Guild.[[/labelnote]]
* "[[HannibalLecture YOU ARE]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis NOT PREPARED!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Yelled by Illidan when you start his fight, and also in the Burning Crusade trailer that featured him. And eventually, this becomes Illidan's CatchPhrase[[/labelnote]]
** Becomes an AscendedMeme in ''Legion'', when Illidan tells his Illidari demon hunters that they "are prepared" in a lore video, and "Prepared" is one of the Demon Hunter's talents.
** Same expansion, Gul'dan [[spoiler:is killed by Illidan after thinking he could manipulate him. In the same way Gul'dan killed Varian too.]] Alas, Gul'dan is not prepared.



* And lest ye forget: '''''[[Machinima/LeeroyJenkinsVideo LEEROOOOOOOOOOOY. JEEEEEEEEEEENKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINS.]]'''''
** "At least I have chicken." [[labelnote:Explanation]]From the famous video about WOW mocking both overprepared guilds and players who charge in without a plan.[[/labelnote]]



* I know what you're thinking. But Tempest Keep was merely a setback! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Part of a long speech by Kael'thas Sunstrider at the beginning of his fight in Magister's Terrace. "X was merely a setback!" is often used to joke about the potential return of raid bosses. What most players fail to realize is that you never killed Kael'thas in Tempest Keep; in fact, if you had the quest from A'dal to kill him, he'll show up as you turn it in to taunt you about still being alive. It's an ascended meme: one of the san'layn in Icecrown Citadel starts the encounter with "Naxxanar was merely a setback!" and the same is true of [[spoiler: Hogger in Stormwind Stockades: [[YouNoTakeCandle "FOREST JUST SETBACK!"]] and Crusader Lord Valdelmar in Tyr's Hand "The Scarlet Crusade is not over! Undeath is merely a setback!".]][[/labelnote]]
* A certain rather (in)famous and [[NarmCharm narmful]] video featuring a rather loud raid leader [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtvIYRrgZ04 went viral]] after a battle against Onyxia went pear-shaped. Highlights include:
** "More [[DamageOverTime DOTS]]. Throw more DOTS. OK Stop DOTS!"[[note]]This is an AscendedMeme, by way of one of the Onyxia achievements[[/note]]
** "Crushim was feared into-" "WHO THE FUCK WAS THAT? CRUSHIM, WHAT THE FUCK?!?"
** MANY WHELPS! HANDLE IT! [[note]] Actually a BeamMeUpScotty, the actual line is "MANY WHELPS! '''NOW'''! HANDLE IT!" Also, another AscendedMeme, by way of the same Onyxia achievements[[/note]]
*** [[AtomicFBomb FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!]] That's a FUCKING FIFTY DKP MINUS!!! WHAT THE FUCK WAS '''THAT SHIT?'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]DKP, or "Dragon Kill Points" is a "currency" that players use to bid on loot from raids. Points are given for attendance and taken away if players do something stupid like wipe the raid, as the player did by being [[StandardStatusEffects "feared"]] into Onyxia's whelps.[[/labelnote]]
** ''Hearthstone'' also referenced this one in the form of the Raid Leader minion, whose quotes and flavor text are references to the video.
* Onyxia deep breathes more! [[labelnote:Explanation]]After a patch, a post on the forums complained that Onyxia would use her Deep Breath ability more often. This is not really seen anymore, but it was used to mock players complaining about random events having their chances of occuring either raised or lowered.[[/labelnote]]



* doodad_nox_door_spider02 [[labelnote:Explanation]]In Naxxramas, one of the openable doors in the Arachnid Quarter showed this as its tooltip when moused over.[[/labelnote]]
* Not one, but ''two'' Jormungar Worms! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by an NPC at the Argent Tournament, this went meme when people realized how tricky it was fighting both at the same time.[[/labelnote]]
---> Vegeta, what does the scouter say about the Jormungar count?
---> IT'S OVER ONE!
---> WHAT? TWO?!
* Press 1 for horse [[labelnote:Explanation]]In the Death Knight starting zone, you have to steal a horse from a nearby farm as part of a quest to get your mount. New players who didn't read the quest text had no idea how to turn in the horse for the quest, and asked in general chat. The button that delivered the horse to the questgiver replaced the first button on your action bar, which is bound to 1 for most people.[[/labelnote]]



* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yBY-T2MDkU IN THE MOUNTAINS]]



* Arise, my champion! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Said by Inquisitor Whitemane when she [[MyRulesAreNotYourRules flaunts every rules of a priest and puts everyone in the group to sleep using the overpowered version of a defunct spell and then resurrects the final boss while in combat.]] Also used to mock bringing old bosses back before Kael'thas invented a new meme for that (see above)[[/labelnote]]
* /waggle [[labelnote:Explanation]]The tails of female draenei draw attention to the way they sway their hips when they run. Since a lot of players consider them attractive, this quickly became a meme. The forward slash is a reference to the game's emote system.[[/labelnote]]
* The Ashbringer... [[labelnote:Explanation]]A legendary sword crafted by Magni Bronzebeard and wielded by Alexandros Mograine against the Scourge. It used to be possible to obtain the corrupted version from Mograine in Naxxramas (he's no longer part of the raid so the sword can no longer obtained in the game), though there wasn't a method to un-corrupt it. In ''Wrath of the Lich King'' Tirion Fordring gets it from Darion Mograine at the Battle of Light's Hope Chapel, and the combination of Tirion's paladin powers and the hallowed ground of the Chapel cleanse the sword. This pretty much ended all speculation on the Ashbringer.[[/labelnote]]
** The Ashbringer...
*** It's a trap!
*** [[Franchise/YuGiOh FOOL! YOU'VE ACTIVATED MY TRAP CARD!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]the latter two were common responses to someone mentioning the Ashbringer[[/labelnote]]
** Becomes an ascended meme in ''Legion'': Retribution Paladins will get to wield it [[spoiler: after Tirion is killed]].
* Gamon will save us! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Gamon is a very low-level NPC in Orgrimmar who rogues must pickpocket in an early quest. To be pickpocketed, he has to be attackable. As such, many Horde players like to kill him on sight for the sake of a laugh. When Horde Death Knights first ride into Orgrimmar, Gamon chases after them, claiming he will save the city. In ''Cataclysm'', Gamon became a ''level 85 Elite'' but is still attackable, massacring armies of even top-geared players. He's been updated for subsequent expansions and has a huge axe to indicate he's no longer someone to mess with.[[/labelnote]]
** Since becoming a minor raid boss, it is possible to ''wipe entire Alliance raids'' by kiting Gamon into them.
** Has reached AscendedMeme status when [[spoiler:Gamon helps in the fight against Nazgrim in the Siege of Orgrimmar.]] The achievement for having Gamon give the finishing blow is even called "Gamon Will Save Us!"
* Your heart... will explode... [[labelnote:Explanation]]Whispered to random players during the Ahn'Qiraj raid by the boss C'thun: this particular threat was apparently deemed silly.[[/labelnote]]
* Basic Campfire for Warchief! [[labelnote:Explanation]]From a lost forum thread where the poster created an initial list of 50 better choices for Warchief then Garrosh Hellscream. One of them was 'Basic Campfire', the fire any character can make to cook food: the posters seized on that one and ran with it. With the publishing of a Garrosh-centric article on WoW Insider, this mutated into "Abesik Kampfire".[[/labelnote]]
** "Don't blame me, I voted for Basic Campfire."
** Vol'Jin for Warchief 2012 [[labelnote:Explanation]]The more plausible option to replace Garrosh was the troll leader Vol'Jin, who opposed him at several points. Became an AscendedMeme towards the end of Mists of Pandaria with Garrosh overthrown and Vol'jin succeeding him.[[/labelnote]]
*** 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]]
* "This pear... so delicious." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Captain Falric in the Halls of Reflection says "Despair... so delicious." during his fight. Many players misheard this.[[/labelnote]]
* [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Genn. Motherfucking. Greymane.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Genn Greymane has become [[MemeticBadass a man among men]] to his fanbase shortly after it was revealed the worgen were confirmed for Cataclysm.[[/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.]]
* FLESH FROM BONE!
** FLESH TROMBONE! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by Lord Jaraxxus when he uses a specific ability. [[LargeHam He has such an exaggerated way of talking]] that almost everything he says can be memetically mutated.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkeC9WVVsQ4 YOU FACE JARAXXUS, EREDAR LORD OF THE TRIFLING GNOME, YOUR ARROGANCE SHALL BE YOUR INFERNO!]]
*** And when we got to Argus, it turned out that Jaraxxus's past uncorrupted self was just as hammy as his EREDAR LORD OF THE BURNING LEGION! incarnation. "YOU FACE JARASUM, GRAND VIZIER OF THE CONSERVATORY!"
* LOOT THE FUCKING COREHOUNDS! [[labelnote:Explanation]]If there is still loot on a mob, it can't be skinned. Corehound skins were valuable back in the day, so raid members would yell at whoever got the loot for that particular one to go back and loot it so they could skin.[[/labelnote]]
* '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIVTT4fgPQI AWW DUDE]]''' Four STR, four STAM leather belt?! '''[[TheImmodestOrgasm AAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!]]''' Level 18? '''[[TheImmodestOrgasm UUUUH, OHHHH~]]''' (Used in Ventrilo harassment) [[labelnote:Explanation]]For some context, a player was recorded saying this mockingly after finding the Forest Leather Belt, orgasm noises and all. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIVTT4fgPQI An infamous Ventrilo troll recorded it and played it later to his Vent channel]], much to the chagrin of the player.[[/labelnote]]
* Lor'themar Theron.
** Who? [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Blood Elf leader, although having a large part in the Sunwell Trilogy manga, does next to nothing ingame. He was often referred to players as "that Blood Elf guy" but the meme really took off with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOZBU257ERE this video.]][[/labelnote]]
*** He was given an important part in the quests surrounding the Isle of Thunder and Mogu excavations during Mists of Pandaria and rose from obscurity to be a capable leader who cares for his people and questions Garrosh's reckless warmongering.
*** But sadly, in perhaps the ultimate {{irony}}, players most likely still don't know his name, as most NPC's refer to him by his rank, Regent Lord.



* [[CallingYourAttacks BOOOOOOOOOOONE]] [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning STOOOOOOOOOOOORM]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Lord Marrowgar yells this during his Bonestorm attack, in a very dramatic fashion. Now an AscendedMeme [[http://www.wowhead.com/petability=649 as a Battle Pet move]].[[/labelnote]]
*** [[TheSimpsons Cast Bonestorm or go to hell!]]
* Also similar to Kael'thas' line, Sindragosa's "SUFFER MORTALS, AS YOUR PATHETIC (insert whatever here) BETRAAAA'''AA'''AAAAYS YOU!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]As with 'flesh from bone' and 'in the mountains,' this went memetic largely because it was a very difficult fight at level, so your average raid would hear this line over and over and ''over'' again in the course of a night. Her little voice-break in the middle of betrays was very distinctive.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jInIBx65tfU Remixed.]]



* "We named him Dranosh..."
** It means "waste of 90 seconds" in Orcish. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Horde version of the Deathbringer Saurfang encounter is prefaced by a lot of dialogue between the death knight and his father, who has come to kill him and claim his body. One of the lines is "We named [my son] Dranosh. It means 'heart of Draenor' in Orcish." It's a touching scene, but since there's no way to skip it, players very quickly tire of having to sit through the whole thing.[[/labelnote]]



* Bolvar's dialogue with Tirion at Icecrown Citadel is very exploitable. One of many examples:
---> '''Akama:''' Without it's master's command, the Illidari will become an even greater threat to this world. Control must be maintained... There must always be... [dramatic fel lightning] a Lord of Outland!
---> '''Maiev:''' The weight of such a Burden... it must be mine! For I need job now anywa-
---> '''Bolvar Fordragon:''' The dragons' flame... sealed my fate. The world of the living can no longer comfort me. Place the horns upon my head, Maiev. Forevermore - I will be the Lord of Outland.
---> '''Akama:''' What the heck are you doing here?!
---> '''Bolvar:''' Icecrown is nice and all, but I heard there are concubines here!
---> '''Tirion:''' [shocked] Bolvar... by all that is holy...
---> '''Bolvar Fordragon:''' Tell them only that they are not prepared...
---> '''Bolvar Fordragon:''' and that Bolvar Fordragon is on vacation...
---> '''Maiev:''' But...
---> '''Bolvar Fordragon:''' [/flirts at Mother Shahraz] NOW GO. LEAVE THIS PLACE AND NEVER RETURN.



* I hate you so much, Cookie. [[labelnote:Explanation]]From a rather humorous conversation in the draenei starting area between Cookie the cook and the captain.[[/labelnote]]
* [[{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}} Good news, everyone!]] I fixed the poison slime pipes! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by everyone's favorite AffablyEvil MadScientist, Professor Putricide. In this case, it's from the Rotface fight.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.wowwiki.com/Thunderfury,_Blessed_Blade_of_the_Windseeker Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker]]
** [[http://www.wowwiki.com/Thunderfury,_Blessed_Blade_of_the_Windseeker Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker]]
** [[http://www.wowwiki.com/Thunderfury,_Blessed_Blade_of_the_Windseeker Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker]]
*** [[http://www.wowwiki.com/Thunderfury,_Blessed_Blade_of_the_Windseeker Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker]]
** [[CallBack The ice stone has melted!]]
** [[http://www.wowwiki.com/Thunderfury,_Blessed_Blade_of_the_Windseeker Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker]] [[http://www.wowwiki.com/Thunderfury,_Blessed_Blade_of_the_Windseeker Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker]]
** [[http://www.wowwiki.com/Thunderfury,_Blessed_Blade_of_the_Windseeker Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]In city chats, the chat will often be flooded with people re-linking this one item over and over, often as part of a contest in which [[SchmuckBait the last person who links it will win something]], as a bid to trick people into flooding trade chat with spam. The problem, however, is that [[SelfDemonstratingArticle Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse is just memetically famous]][[/labelnote]]
* Say it with me now; ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcA6y7sxKcA I will not move when Flame Wreath is cast or the raid blows up]]''.[[labelnote:Explanation]]During the Burning Crusade a midtier boss called Shade of Aran would use the ability Flame Wreath which, if you move, does damage to the entire raid.[[/labelnote]]
** And then it returns for Legion... prompting some people to start repeating it.



* I remember it well. It was a bright, shiny day... I was just mindin' my own business, when all of a sudden, [[BigBad Deathwing]] appeared! [[MemeticBadass I said to myself,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1bP-m_BwX0 "I'm gonna punch that dragon in the face!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]"The Day Deathwing Came" has become one of the most favorited quests ever.[[/labelnote]]
* The new loading screen for Northrend features [[http://static.mmo-champion.com/mmoc/images/news/2010/august/load_northrend2.jpg a very exploitable picture of Bolvar]], which quickly resulted in [[http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/748783-Caption-this-loading-screen! this thread.]]
* With the Twilight's Hammer cult being a major antagonist in Cataclysm, the advent of the Twilight Dragonflight and the addition of the Twilight Highlands, people have taken to making (largely mocking) Twilight references whenever one of these comes up.
** The game itself does as well... one of the [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent worgen]] /silly jokes is 'At least we don't sparkle...'
* [[http://www.wowpedia.org/Johnny_Awesome My body is clad head to toe in heirlooms!]] [[Advertising/TheManYourManCouldSmellLike Look at your armor, now back to mine.]] Yes, my horse ''is'' made of stars!
** For Twinkles! A more loyal star pony has never been seen.
* The Rainbow Generator item, which shoots rainbows at enemies. It does very weak damage, but it's become very popular to show people firing this thing off, one image even showing somebody hitting ''The Lich King'' with it.
* I tried to make an entry here...
** ...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 regrettably deleted.[[/labelnote]]
* Watch your clever mouth, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by Garrosh Hellscream to Sylvanas Windrunner, after she mockingly salutes him. Notable because the exchange is not only uncensored, but voiced.[[/labelnote]]



** "What do you want for the next expansion?" // "For the Draenei to do something!" [[labelnote:explanation]] The Draenei were OutOfFocus pre Warlords of Draenor[[/labelnote]]



* GO'EL, GO'EL, GO'EL, GO'EL... [[labelnote:Explanation]] [[SatelliteLoveInterest Aggra]] during a questline that made you save Thrall. "Go'el" is Thrall's true name, and Aggra will keep reminding you of that during said questline. Used whenever Aggra is mentioned.[[/labelnote]]
* POWAH! [[labelnote:Explanation]]During the long intro speech for the Archbishop Benedictus boss fight, the speech is extremely overdone and many players will /y POWAH as he says power.[[/labelnote]]
** Darth Benedictus. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The parallels to Darth Sidious are pretty obvious.[[/labelnote]]
** Lord Voldemort references are a decent second in popularity, due to the "there is no X or Y - only power" speech being almost identical to Voldemort's speech in the first Film/HarryPotter movie, although ''far'' from the only obvious ShoutOut by raid bosses.



* "Break yourselves upon my body. ''Feel'' the strength of the earth!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Ozruk, a boss in the Stonecore instance, repeats this phrase quite a few times. And people tend to see [[DoubleEntendre in it more than one sense.]][[/labelnote]]
* The ''Mists of Pandaria'' cinematic was revealed, and the scene where the unnamed human hands the unnamed orc his spear while the pair stares at Chen Stormstout has become a meme.
** The unnamed human has been dubbed "Captain Mustache" by some and is being hailed as a MemeticBadass on par with Saurfang and Crowley. Others seem to think he's Jaina's (possibly non-canon) brother Tandred.
** Towards the end of the expansion, Blizzard released [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jon4GV1u3uM a follow-up cinematic]] featuring the characters [[DrowningMySorrows drowning their sorrows]] at a tavern after getting their asses kicked. The short's two sole lines of dialogue have already reached memetic status in the community.
-->'''Human:''' So...it was a ''bear''?\\
'''Orc:''' In a HAT!
* how u mak pnada [[labelnote:Explanation]]People probably (hopefully) jokingly asking how to make a Pandaren character before the proper expansion was released has become somewhat common in city chat.[[/labelnote]]
** how u mak pinata
** where u go 2 betle pets [[labelnote:Explanation]]Same as above, but asking how to battle with minipets again before it was implemented.[[/labelnote]]



* The [[EmotionEater Sha]] of Happiness has taken the official forums by storm. {◕ ◡ ◕}
** The horror and terror in this [[http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6934194499?page=1 thread]] is unfathomable! I must put a stop and en... {◕ ᵥ ◕} *blinks* Stand strong adventurers, its reign shall end shortly. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Blizzard´s representative about this onslaught of terror.[[/labelnote]]
** {◕ ◡ ◕}{◕ ◡ ◕}{◕ ◡ ◕}{◕ ◡ ◕}{◕ ◡ ◕}{◕ ◡ ◕}
* 28g 50s [[labelnote:Explanation]]With the new loot system introduced by the Pandaria expansion, bosses in LFR instances and bonus rolls from Charms of Good Fortune will always give this amount of money as a consolation if the player did not win any gear. May be brought up by those expressing frustration with the system.[[/labelnote]]
** "Got gold."/"Gold. FUCK!" are common things to hear at the end of every fight. Never in the history of capitalism have so many people been so angry to get so rich.
*** And with the new random Legendary item drops in Legion, one suspects that [[http://www.wowhead.com/item=132452/sephuzs-secret ''"THE FUCKING RING!"'']] and variants thereof will be joining that phrase for a while.[[labelnote:Explanation]]The ring isn't too bad as a stat stick while gearing, but its proc is incredibly weak compared to many of the other Legendary items' special abilities, and it seems that for precisely that reason it ends up being the first Legendary to drop for 2/3 of the playerbase.[[/labelnote]]



* 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]]
* In ''Warlords of Draenor'', explore the savage world of Draenor, as you savage the savages of the savage jungles and savage deserts and savage mountains and savage the savage races with savage savage savages. #Savage [[labelnote:Explanation]]When Blizzard announced Warlords of Draenor at Blizzcon 2013, they... Might have overused the word 'savage'. They immediately caught this one, making a weird cross between a forced meme and a real meme.[[/labelnote]]
* ''"The WILL...of the Klaxxi...is [[{{Mondegreen}} a turtle!]]"''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by Korven the Prime, one of the Paragons of the Klaxxi. He's supposed to be saying "eternal," but due to the voice, it sounds like "a turtle." This has been heavily referenced on the official forums and in-game as well, including several hunters naming their turtle pets "[=WillOfTheKlaxxi=]."[[/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 were still a sore point for critics of the expansion.[[/labelnote]]
* "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".
* '''CITIZENS OF DALARAN''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]With the advent of Patch 6.0.2, one-time Raid Destroyer Algalon the Observer became fairly trivial for players at level 90 to solo. As a result, Rhonin's speech, once very rare, following any player handing in the quest gained from defeating Algalon started to be heard once every five minutes, or even more frequently. There was even an addon created to shut him up, and in time the event was tweaked to only be audible in the immediate vicinity.[[/labelnote]]
* RISE, MOUNTAINS [[labelnote:Explanation]] Tectus, a stone elemental boss in the Highmaul raid, says this during his fight. A ''lot''. Needless to say, players latched on to it.[[/labelnote]]
** RISE, MOUNTAINS
** RISE, MOUNTAINS

* Khadgar gets angry. Madgar.
** Khadgar stands in the fire and dies. Badgar.
*** Khadgar is going to be a father. Dadgar. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Khadgar is a relevant character again in ''Warlords of Draenor''. A thread on the official forums appeared that made a rhyming pun in the style of the above, quickly filled up with similar Khadgar permutations, and inspired a wealth of similar threads for just about any character you can think of. [[/labelnote]]



* [[WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget I'll get you next time, Gadget!!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Lich King's behavior in [=WotLK=]--confronting the player only to leave without harming them--has drawn frequent comparisons to Dr. Claw.[[/labelnote]]



* Me gonna ook you in the dooker! [[labelnote:Explanation]]A [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar much quoted]] line from the Stormstout Brewery boss Ook-Ook, typically used as the punchline to a ShaggyDogStory.[[/labelnote]]
** The hozen speak in a weird mixture of {{Engrish}} and PoirotSpeak, so this was to be expected. Riko in particular:
--> "COME AT ME, BROKKERS!"
--> "I'm back, you DOOKERS!"
--> "Grook dem florkin' wikkets!"
* No king rules forever. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The ArcWords of ''Wrath of the Lich King'', now applied to WoW's status as the top MMORPG after the game lost 44% of its subscribers over the course of ''Warlords of Draenor''. The last time the sub numbers were so low was in ''December 2005''.[[/labelnote]]
* Jaina is a Dreadlord. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Jaina was once the voice of diplomacy in the Alliance; ever since the bombing of Theramore she became a war hawk hating anyone in the Horde, even the more reasonable leaders, and as of ''Legion'', has left Dalaran in anger because it has been opened to the Horde again... players unhappy with the change speculate that this new, angry Jaina is a Dreadlord in disguise, compounded with Dreadlords in general being excellent MasterOfDisguise (one could impersonate Medivh), and the more recognized pacifist Jaina is either in hiding, got shanghai'ed to VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm or 'died in Theramore', this speculation usually taking form to referring the current angry Jaina to be 'a Dreadlord in her costume', or complimenting how good that Dreadlord is in 'impersonating' Jaina. Ascended not in the game proper, but in ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'' where Jaina gets a Dreadlord skin.[[/labelnote]]

* In case of sub loss, break glass. [[labelnote:Explanation (Spoilers)]] A teaser for ''Legion'' features Illidan encased in crystal and alt!Gul'dan presumably releasing him. As Illidan is a fan-favourite character and ''Legion'' comes after an extended period of subscriber loss for WoW, with the game falling to levels not seen since ''2005'', fans began photoshopping the image with 'in case of sub loss, break glass' as a joke about Blizzard's clear attempt to WinBackTheCrowd.

* In case Lapdogs! All of sub loss, break glass. [[labelnote:Explanation (Spoilers)]] A teaser for ''Legion'' features Illidan encased in crystal you![[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by Van Cleef [[KilledOffForReal (R.I.P.)]] upon knocking his HP down far enough. Unfortunately, not repeated by his daughter.[[/labelnote]]
* Blades of light![[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by Champion Herod, final boss of the Scarlet Monastery Armory, when he uses his InstantDeathRadius. For older players, it's synonymous with "get away from the boss NOW".[[/labelnote]]
* I'LL RIP THE SECRETS FROM YOUR FLESH![[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by Interrogator Vishas, the first boss of the Scarlet Monastary Graveyard
and alt!Gul'dan presumably releasing him. As Illidan now final boss of Rank 1 of the Brawler's Guild.[[/labelnote]]
* And lest ye forget: '''''[[Machinima/LeeroyJenkinsVideo LEEROOOOOOOOOOOY. JEEEEEEEEEEENKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINS.]]'''''
** "At least I have chicken." [[labelnote:Explanation]]From the famous video about WOW mocking both overprepared guilds and players who charge in without a plan.[[/labelnote]]
* A certain rather (in)famous and [[NarmCharm narmful]] video featuring a rather loud raid leader [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtvIYRrgZ04 went viral]] after a battle against Onyxia went pear-shaped. Highlights include:
** "More [[DamageOverTime DOTS]]. Throw more DOTS. OK Stop DOTS!"[[note]]This is an AscendedMeme, by way of one of the Onyxia achievements[[/note]]
** "Crushim was feared into-" "WHO THE FUCK WAS THAT? CRUSHIM, WHAT THE FUCK?!?"
** MANY WHELPS! HANDLE IT! [[note]] Actually a BeamMeUpScotty, the actual line is "MANY WHELPS! '''NOW'''! HANDLE IT!" Also, another AscendedMeme, by way of the same Onyxia achievements[[/note]]
*** [[AtomicFBomb FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!]] That's a FUCKING FIFTY DKP MINUS!!! WHAT THE FUCK WAS '''THAT SHIT?'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]DKP, or "Dragon Kill Points"
is a fan-favourite character "currency" that players use to bid on loot from raids. Points are given for attendance and ''Legion'' taken away if players do something stupid like wipe the raid, as the player did by being [[StandardStatusEffects "feared"]] into Onyxia's whelps.[[/labelnote]]
** ''Hearthstone'' also referenced this one in the form of the Raid Leader minion, whose quotes and flavor text are references to the video.
* Onyxia deep breathes more! [[labelnote:Explanation]]After a patch, a post on the forums complained that Onyxia would use her Deep Breath ability more often. This is not really seen anymore, but it was used to mock players complaining about random events having their chances of occuring either raised or lowered.[[/labelnote]]
* doodad_nox_door_spider02 [[labelnote:Explanation]]In Naxxramas, one of the openable doors in the Arachnid Quarter showed this as its tooltip when moused over.[[/labelnote]]
* The Ashbringer... [[labelnote:Explanation]]A legendary sword crafted by Magni Bronzebeard and wielded by Alexandros Mograine against the Scourge. It used to be possible to obtain the corrupted version from Mograine in Naxxramas (he's no longer part of the raid so the sword can no longer obtained in the game), though there wasn't a method to un-corrupt it. In ''Wrath of the Lich King'' Tirion Fordring gets it from Darion Mograine at the Battle of Light's Hope Chapel, and the combination of Tirion's paladin powers and the hallowed ground of the Chapel cleanse the sword. This pretty much ended all speculation on the Ashbringer.[[/labelnote]]
** The Ashbringer...
*** It's a trap!
*** [[Franchise/YuGiOh FOOL! YOU'VE ACTIVATED MY TRAP CARD!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]the latter two were common responses to someone mentioning the Ashbringer[[/labelnote]]
** Becomes an ascended meme in ''Legion'': Retribution Paladins will get to wield it [[spoiler: after Tirion is killed]].
* Your heart... will explode... [[labelnote:Explanation]]Whispered to random players during the Ahn'Qiraj raid by the boss C'thun: this particular threat was apparently deemed silly.[[/labelnote]]
* LOOT THE FUCKING COREHOUNDS! [[labelnote:Explanation]]If there is still loot on a mob, it can't be skinned. Corehound skins were valuable back in the day, so raid members would yell at whoever got the loot for that particular one to go back and loot it so they could skin.[[/labelnote]]
* '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIVTT4fgPQI AWW DUDE]]''' Four STR, four STAM leather belt?! '''[[TheImmodestOrgasm AAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!]]''' Level 18?

* "An illusion!? WHAT ARE YOU HIDING!" / "Something's not quite right...." / "Who goes there?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]During the Suramar questline in the ''Legion'' expansion, players are given an illusionary disguise to wander around Suramar City. The sentries in the city utter the quoted line before casting a spell that would dispel the disguise. Since there are many sentries located throughout the city, players hear these three lines A LOT. This is more problematic in the "elite" area of the city, as there are more sentries AND they are more difficult to kill.[[/labelnote]]
* Nomi's tendency to burn food has become legendary. [[labelnote:explanation]]Nomi is an NPC that acts as the pathway to develop the player's cooking skill during the ''Legion'' expansion. To do this, the player has to give him some food in exchange for the possibility of learning new cooking recipes. Unfortunately, Nomi is a shit cook and burns a lot of the food the player gives him and the recipes the player gets are few and far in between. However, WordOfGod states that he will get better as the expansion progresses.[[/labelnote]]

* [[spoiler: Illidan]] did nothing wrong! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Borrowed meme from {{Manga/Berserk}}, this is basically Xe'ra's questline in a nutshell, constantly praising Illidan during the flashback sequences as the chosen one.

*** He was given an important part in the quests surrounding the Isle of Thunder and Mogu excavations
during Mists of Pandaria and rose from obscurity to be a capable leader who cares for his people and questions Garrosh's reckless warmongering.

the ''Legion'' expansion. To do this, ultimate {{irony}}, players most likely still don't know his name, as most NPC's refer to him by his rank, Regent Lord.

* Also similar to Kael'thas' line, Sindragosa's "SUFFER MORTALS, AS YOUR PATHETIC (insert whatever here) BETRAAAA'''AA'''AAAAYS YOU!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]As with 'flesh from bone' and 'in the mountains,' this went memetic largely because it was a very difficult fight at level, so your average raid would hear this line over and over and ''over'' again in the course of a night. Her little voice-break in the middle of betrays was very distinctive.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jInIBx65tfU Remixed.]]
* "We named him Dranosh..."
** It means "waste of 90 seconds" in Orcish. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Horde version of the Deathbringer Saurfang encounter is prefaced by a lot of dialogue between the death knight and his father, who has come to kill him and claim his body. One of the lines is "We named [my son] Dranosh. It means 'heart of Draenor' in Orcish." It's a touching scene, but since there's no way to skip it, players very quickly tire of having to sit through the whole thing.[[/labelnote]]
* Bolvar's dialogue with Tirion at Icecrown Citadel is very exploitable. One of many examples:
---> '''Akama:''' Without it's master's command, the Illidari will become an even greater threat to this world. Control must be maintained... There must always be... [dramatic fel lightning] a Lord of Outland!
---> '''Maiev:''' The weight of such a Burden... it must be mine! For I need job now anywa-

---> '''Akama:''' What the heck are

---> '''Bolvar:''' Icecrown is nice and all, but I heard there are concubines here!
---> '''Tirion:''' [shocked] Bolvar... by all that is holy...
---> '''Bolvar Fordragon:''' Tell them only that they are not prepared...
---> '''Bolvar Fordragon:''' and that Bolvar Fordragon is on vacation...

* [[{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}} Good news, everyone!]] I fixed the poison slime pipes! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by everyone's favorite AffablyEvil MadScientist, Professor Putricide. In this case, it's from the Rotface fight.[[/labelnote]]
* The new loading screen for Northrend features [[http://static.mmo-champion.com/mmoc/images/news/2010/august/load_northrend2.jpg a very exploitable picture of Bolvar]], which quickly resulted in [[http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/748783-Caption-this-loading-screen! this thread.]]
* '''CITIZENS OF DALARAN''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]With the advent of Patch 6.0.2, one-time Raid Destroyer Algalon the Observer became fairly trivial for players at level 90 to solo. As a result, Rhonin's speech, once very rare, following any player handing in the quest gained from defeating Algalon started to be heard once every five minutes, or even more frequently. There was even an addon created to shut him up, and in time the event was tweaked to only be audible in the immediate vicinity.[[/labelnote]]
* [[WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget I'll get you next time, Gadget!!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Lich King's behavior in [=WotLK=]--confronting the player only to leave without harming them--has drawn frequent comparisons to Dr. Claw.[[/labelnote]]
* No king rules forever. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The ArcWords of ''Wrath of the Lich King'', now applied to WoW's status as the top MMORPG after the game lost 44% of its subscribers over the course of ''Warlords of Draenor''. The last time the sub numbers were so low was in ''December 2005''.[[/labelnote]]

!!''Cataclysm''

* Gamon will save us! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Gamon is a very low-level NPC in Orgrimmar who rogues must pickpocket in an early quest. To be pickpocketed, he has to be attackable. As such, many Horde players like to kill him on sight
for the next expansion?" // "For sake of a laugh. When Horde Death Knights first ride into Orgrimmar, Gamon chases after them, claiming he will save the Draenei city. In ''Cataclysm'', Gamon became a ''level 85 Elite'' but is still attackable, massacring armies of even top-geared players. He's been updated for subsequent expansions and has a huge axe to do something!" [[labelnote:explanation]] indicate he's no longer someone to mess with.[[/labelnote]]
** Since becoming a minor raid boss, it is possible to ''wipe entire Alliance raids'' by kiting Gamon into them.
** Has reached AscendedMeme status when [[spoiler:Gamon helps in the fight against Nazgrim in the Siege of Orgrimmar.]]
The Draenei were achievement for having Gamon give the finishing blow is even called "Gamon Will Save Us!"
* Basic Campfire for Warchief! [[labelnote:Explanation]]From a lost forum thread where the poster created an initial list of 50 better choices for Warchief then Garrosh Hellscream. One of them was 'Basic Campfire', the fire any character can make to cook food: the posters seized on that one and ran with it. With the publishing of a Garrosh-centric article on WoW Insider, this mutated into "Abesik Kampfire".[[/labelnote]]
** "Don't blame me, I voted for Basic Campfire."
** Vol'Jin for Warchief 2012 [[labelnote:Explanation]]The more plausible option to replace Garrosh was the troll leader Vol'Jin, who opposed him at several points. Became an AscendedMeme towards the end of Mists of Pandaria with Garrosh overthrown and Vol'jin succeeding him.[[/labelnote]]
*** Vol'jin didn't make Sylvanas the Warchief, the writers did. [[labelnote:explanation]]Vol'jin was pretty much
OutOfFocus pre 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]]
* [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Genn. Motherfucking. Greymane.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Genn Greymane has become [[MemeticBadass a man among men]] to his fanbase shortly after it was revealed the worgen were confirmed for Cataclysm.[[/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[[/labelnote]]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 remember it well. It was a bright, shiny day... I was just mindin' my own business, when all of a sudden, [[BigBad Deathwing]] appeared! [[MemeticBadass I said to myself,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1bP-m_BwX0 "I'm gonna punch that dragon in the face!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]"The Day Deathwing Came" has become one of the most favorited quests ever.[[/labelnote]]
* With the Twilight's Hammer cult being a major antagonist in Cataclysm, the advent of the Twilight Dragonflight and the addition of the Twilight Highlands, people have taken to making (largely mocking) Twilight references whenever one of these comes up.
** The game itself does as well... one of the [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent worgen]] /silly jokes is 'At least we don't sparkle...'
* [[http://www.wowpedia.org/Johnny_Awesome My body is clad head to toe in heirlooms!]] [[Advertising/TheManYourManCouldSmellLike Look at your armor, now back to mine.]] Yes, my horse ''is'' made of stars!
** For Twinkles! A more loyal star pony has never been seen.
* The Rainbow Generator item, which shoots rainbows at enemies. It does very weak damage, but it's become very popular to show people firing this thing off, one image even showing somebody hitting ''The Lich King'' with it.
* I tried to make an entry here...
** ...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 regrettably deleted.[[/labelnote]]
* Watch your clever mouth, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by Garrosh Hellscream to Sylvanas Windrunner, after she mockingly salutes him. Notable because the exchange is not only uncensored, but voiced.[[/labelnote]]
* GO'EL, GO'EL, GO'EL, GO'EL... [[labelnote:Explanation]] [[SatelliteLoveInterest Aggra]] during a questline that made you save Thrall. "Go'el" is Thrall's true name, and Aggra will keep reminding you of that during said questline. Used whenever Aggra is mentioned.[[/labelnote]]
* POWAH! [[labelnote:Explanation]]During the long intro speech for the Archbishop Benedictus boss fight, the speech is extremely overdone and many players will /y POWAH as he says power.[[/labelnote]]
** Darth Benedictus. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The parallels to Darth Sidious are pretty obvious.[[/labelnote]]
** Lord Voldemort references are a decent second in popularity, due to the "there is no X or Y - only power" speech being almost identical to Voldemort's speech in the first Film/HarryPotter movie, although ''far'' from the only obvious ShoutOut by raid bosses.
* "Break yourselves upon my body. ''Feel'' the strength of the earth!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Ozruk, a boss in the Stonecore instance, repeats this phrase quite a few times. And people tend to see [[DoubleEntendre in it more than one sense.]][[/labelnote]]
* Jaina is a Dreadlord. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Jaina was once the voice of diplomacy in the Alliance; ever since the bombing of Theramore she became a war hawk hating anyone in the Horde, even the more reasonable leaders, and as of ''Legion'', has left Dalaran in anger because it has been opened to the Horde again... players unhappy with the change speculate that this new, angry Jaina is a Dreadlord in disguise, compounded with Dreadlords in general being excellent MasterOfDisguise (one could impersonate Medivh), and the more recognized pacifist Jaina is either in hiding, got shanghai'ed to VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm or 'died in Theramore', this speculation usually taking form to referring the current angry Jaina to be 'a Dreadlord in her costume', or complimenting how good that Dreadlord is in 'impersonating' Jaina. Ascended not in the game proper, but in ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'' where Jaina gets a Dreadlord skin.[[/labelnote]]


Added DiffLines:


!!''Mists of Pandaria''

* The ''Mists of Pandaria'' cinematic was revealed, and the scene where the unnamed human hands the unnamed orc his spear while the pair stares at Chen Stormstout has become a meme.
** The unnamed human has been dubbed "Captain Mustache" by some and is being hailed as a MemeticBadass on par with Saurfang and Crowley. Others seem to think he's Jaina's (possibly non-canon) brother Tandred.
** Towards the end of the expansion, Blizzard released [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jon4GV1u3uM a follow-up cinematic]] featuring the characters [[DrowningMySorrows drowning their sorrows]] at a tavern after getting their asses kicked. The short's two sole lines of dialogue have already reached memetic status in the community.
-->'''Human:''' So...it was a ''bear''?\\
'''Orc:''' In a HAT!
* Arise, my champion! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Said by Inquisitor Whitemane when she [[MyRulesAreNotYourRules flaunts every rules of a priest and puts everyone in the group to sleep using the overpowered version of a defunct spell and then resurrects the final boss while in combat.]] Also used to mock bringing old bosses back before Kael'thas invented a new meme for that (see above)[[/labelnote]]
* how u mak pnada [[labelnote:Explanation]]People probably (hopefully) jokingly asking how to make a Pandaren character before the proper expansion was released has become somewhat common in city chat.[[/labelnote]]
** how u mak pinata
** where u go 2 betle pets [[labelnote:Explanation]]Same as above, but asking how to battle with minipets again before it was implemented.[[/labelnote]]
* The [[EmotionEater Sha]] of Happiness has taken the official forums by storm. {◕ ◡ ◕}
** The horror and terror in this [[http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6934194499?page=1 thread]] is unfathomable! I must put a stop and en... {◕ ᵥ ◕} *blinks* Stand strong adventurers, its reign shall end shortly. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Blizzard´s representative about this onslaught of terror.[[/labelnote]]
** {◕ ◡ ◕}{◕ ◡ ◕}{◕ ◡ ◕}{◕ ◡ ◕}{◕ ◡ ◕}{◕ ◡ ◕}
* 28g 50s [[labelnote:Explanation]]With the new loot system introduced by the Pandaria expansion, bosses in LFR instances and bonus rolls from Charms of Good Fortune will always give this amount of money as a consolation if the player did not win any gear. May be brought up by those expressing frustration with the system.[[/labelnote]]
** "Got gold."/"Gold. FUCK!" are common things to hear at the end of every fight. Never in the history of capitalism have so many people been so angry to get so rich.
*** And with the new random Legendary item drops in Legion, one suspects that [[http://www.wowhead.com/item=132452/sephuzs-secret ''"THE FUCKING RING!"'']] and variants thereof will be joining that phrase for a while.[[labelnote:Explanation]]The ring isn't too bad as a stat stick while gearing, but its proc is incredibly weak compared to many of the other Legendary items' special abilities, and it seems that for precisely that reason it ends up being the first Legendary to drop for 2/3 of the playerbase.[[/labelnote]]
* ''"The WILL...of the Klaxxi...is [[{{Mondegreen}} a turtle!]]"''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by Korven the Prime, one of the Paragons of the Klaxxi. He's supposed to be saying "eternal," but due to the voice, it sounds like "a turtle." This has been heavily referenced on the official forums and in-game as well, including several hunters naming their turtle pets "[=WillOfTheKlaxxi=]."[[/labelnote]]
* Me gonna ook you in the dooker! [[labelnote:Explanation]]A [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar much quoted]] line from the Stormstout Brewery boss Ook-Ook, typically used as the punchline to a ShaggyDogStory.[[/labelnote]]
** The hozen speak in a weird mixture of {{Engrish}} and PoirotSpeak, so this was to be expected. Riko in particular:
--> "COME AT ME, BROKKERS!"
--> "I'm back, you DOOKERS!"
--> "Grook dem florkin' wikkets!"

!!''Warlords of Draenor''

* In ''Warlords of Draenor'', explore the savage world of Draenor, as you savage the savages of the savage jungles and savage deserts and savage mountains and savage the savage races with savage savage savages. #Savage [[labelnote:Explanation]]When Blizzard announced Warlords of Draenor at Blizzcon 2013, they... Might have overused the word 'savage'. They immediately caught this one, making a weird cross between a forced meme and a real meme.[[/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 were still a sore point for critics of the expansion.[[/labelnote]]
* "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".
* RISE, MOUNTAINS [[labelnote:Explanation]] Tectus, a stone elemental boss in the Highmaul raid, says this during his fight. A ''lot''. Needless to say, players latched on to it.[[/labelnote]]
** RISE, MOUNTAINS
** RISE, MOUNTAINS

* Khadgar gets angry. Madgar.
** Khadgar stands in the fire and dies. Badgar.
*** Khadgar is going to be a father. Dadgar. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Khadgar is a relevant character again in ''Warlords of Draenor''. A thread on the official forums appeared that made a rhyming pun in the style of the above, quickly filled up with similar Khadgar permutations, and inspired a wealth of similar threads for just about any character you can think of. [[/labelnote]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxY89F5oU-I "Times change."]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Said by Garrosh Hellscream to Gul'Dan during the Warlords of Draenor opening cinematic. Often used in response when someone complains about changes to the game's mechanics.[[/labelnote]]

!!''Legion''

* In case of sub loss, break glass. [[labelnote:Explanation (Spoilers)]] A teaser for ''Legion'' features Illidan encased in crystal and alt!Gul'dan presumably releasing him. As Illidan is a fan-favourite character and ''Legion'' comes after an extended period of subscriber loss for WoW, with the game falling to levels not seen since ''2005'', fans began photoshopping the image with 'in case of sub loss, break glass' as a joke about Blizzard's clear attempt to WinBackTheCrowd. [[/labelnote]]
* "An illusion!? WHAT ARE YOU HIDING!" / "Something's not quite right...." / "Who goes there?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]During the Suramar questline in the ''Legion'' expansion, players are given an illusionary disguise to wander around Suramar City. The sentries in the city utter the quoted line before casting a spell that would dispel the disguise. Since there are many sentries located throughout the city, players hear these three lines A LOT. This is more problematic in the "elite" area of the city, as there are more sentries AND they are more difficult to kill.[[/labelnote]]
* Nomi's tendency to burn food has become legendary. [[labelnote:explanation]]Nomi is an NPC that acts as the pathway to develop the player's cooking skill during the ''Legion'' expansion. To do this, the player has to give him some food in exchange for the possibility of learning new cooking recipes. Unfortunately, Nomi is a shit cook and burns a lot of the food the player gives him and the recipes the player gets are few and far in between. However, WordOfGod states that he will get better as the expansion progresses.[[/labelnote]]
** Became an AscendedMeme by being referenced in one of Blizzard's hotfix notes.
-->Blizzard hotfix note: ''Nomi will now also check your bank to see if you have any Silver Mackerel for him to burn.''
** A common joke is that Sargeras is renaming his forces the Nomi Legion.
** Nomi's AscendedMeme status peaked during April Fools 2017 in the open beta, where Blizzard made all of Dalaran attackable... and gave Nomi world boss-tier stats. Cue entire raids dedicated to fighting Firelord Nomi.
* [[spoiler: Illidan]] did nothing wrong! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Borrowed meme from {{Manga/Berserk}}, this is basically Xe'ra's questline in a nutshell, constantly praising Illidan during the flashback sequences as the chosen one. At the end of the questline, Xe'ra more or less blames the player for his fall ([[DevelopersForesight the quest will acknowledge if you actually killed Illidan]], [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption but if you didn't then you're blamed for indirectly causing it]]), unless the player is a demon hunter. Suffice to say, this didn't go over so well with a lot of players.[[/labelnote]]
** MY DESTINY IS MY OWN! [[labelnote:explanation]]When Illidan and Xe'ra finally meet... he kills her. AndTheFandomRejoiced.[[/labelnote]]
* Time to feed the [[AddictiveMagic junkies]]. [[labelnote:explanation]]The Nightfallen are literal mana addicts whose behavior and animations are clearly based on addicts of hard drugs. Many players simply refer to them as junkies. Every day they have to be fed ancient mana to continue providing services.[[/labelnote]]
* THESE MORTALS DARE NOT CHALLENGE MY CLAIM TO THE AEGIS! [[labelnote:explanation]]God-King Skovald, the ArcVillain of the Stormheim zone, became a butt to many jokes due to his remarkable SimpletonVoice and his obsession with the Aegis of Aggramar. Fans like to believe he sees it as his CompanionCube.[[/labelnote]]
* These are drogbar rocks. '''DROGBAR STONES!''' [[labelnote:explanation]]Drogbar mobs at Highmountain and the Neltharion's Lair dungeon are [[WelcomeToCorneria fond of saying this line]] when aggroed.[[/labelnote]]
** PUNY KARKUN. SHOULDN'T BE HERE. [[labelnote:explanation]]The drogbar are just very quotable in general.[[/labelnote]]
** GO KISS A TAUREN!

* "We could do that, but it'd cost a raid tier."[[labelnote:Explanation]]A developer once described a particularly called-for feature in game as a "choice between it and a raid tier."
