** You learn later that these "Fal'dorie" are the result of the Arcane'dor failing to find proper root in Falnaar, and if things go wrong in Meredil, the exact same thing or something just as horrible could happen to Thalyssra and the rest of the friendly Nightfallen rebels.

* In the Emerald Nightmare raid, you face Xavius. Having met the guy's "shadow" in Val'sharah and Darkheart Thicket, you think you know what to expect. Just a satyr with a bit of red on him. As it turns out, the real deal is rather... different. A huge, hulking creature with massive red claws, spiky spiny tree-like protrusions from his back like blood-soaked branches, a long and devilish forked tongue, and an almost comically tiny pair of hoofs showing off just how unnatural the size of the rest of his body is. The fight against him is pretty unsettling as well. Taking place in a foggy void, you spend the beginning of the fight facing only him, until slowly... ''things'' start to shamble out of the fog. Nightmare creatures all more monstrous than any you've seen so far, all lumbering towards Xavius, ready to empowered him, or slaughter you. And as the fight progresses there gets to be more, and more, and ''more'' of them, all endlessly shambling out of the dark...

* The Falanaar Tunnels, a crypt that is filled to the brim with ''literal'' [[DemonicSpider demonic spiders.]] These spiders look [[BodyHorror absolutely grotesque]] by the way. The males have Nightborne faces on a spiders body, and they also have spider eyes placed below that face as well. And yes, it looks just as horrible as you think it is. The females are slightly better, looking like shrouded Nightborne with four insect legs coming out of their dress. But still, there is something about these ''[[AnimalisticAbomination things]]'' that's just [[UncannyValley wrong.]] Even people who are fine with or like spiders are horrified by these things.

Added DiffLines:

* [[spoiler:Tirion Fordring]]'s death shortly before is also horrible to witness. Since it takes place outside a cutscene, it isn't as graphic to ''watch''... But the ''screaming'' that accompanies it is hard to listen to.

* Suramar. ''Fucking Suramar''. It's a very lovely city, with a light purple, blue, and faintly lavender color scheme... whose draconian martial law (thanks to Gul'dan and the Legion "making a deal") makes ''Silvermoon's'' repressive regime seem open and welcoming of dissent... ''and a vast majority of the city is okay with it all''. But... if you state you think that ''maybe'' the Grand Magistrix shouldn't have allied your people with the demons? Exile. Actively foment dissent? Death, or self-imposed exile before the guard get you - and they'll hunt you down outside the border anyway, ''just to be sure''. Discipline your servants too harshly? Exile [[note]]though it's implied that the "discipline" there was outright abuse[[/note]]. Considered by the ruling class to be unworthy to live in their great city? Well, they might be lenient there; you won't get exiled, but you will have your arcwine rations cut heavily... and thanks to literal millennia of dependency, arcwine is the ''only'' thing that provides you nutrition, and without enough of it, you start to "wither", becoming a mana addict whose mental faculties degenerate as the '''hunger''' grows. If it gets too great, you transform into a [[NotUsingTheZedWord Withered]], a mindless thing who hungers only for mana and flesh. And, to add the cherry on top, the transformation from "Nightborne", to "Nightfallen", to "Withered" can progress in ''less than a day''. The Blood Elves, comparatively, got ''lucky'' with their addiction. If it weren't for the number of guards around, players would probably rampage through Suramar, killing as many of the population as they could - and in some cases, even that's not enough to stop them.

* [[spoiler:Varian Wrynn]]'s death. Impaled through the chest, he's brought before Gul'dan who floods his body with Fel energy, resulting in him ''exploding'' when it finally overwhelms him. You get to witness the pleasant scene of his body and armor [[BodyHorror crack with Fel lines as the energy levels rise]] all while he screams in pain. The explosion was large enough for Genn and Sylvanas to be able to see it several miles away.

* According to the new book Chronicles, there are these things called Void Gods that are all powerful, created the old gods (keep in mind, four old gods took the entire pantheon united sans Sargeras to defeat divided, though it should be noted this was only because it was the only way to preserve Azeroth from destruction as well) and hate all non-void life.

* In the Eastville Logging Camp in Elweyon Forest, the sawmill has a ''giant'' rotary blade three times the height and width of your character. While there doesn't seem to be anything that can turn it on and any proof that's it's used to cut anything accept wood, it's very difficult to go near the thing. (What on earth do they need a blade ''that'' size for??)

* In the Eastville Logging Camp in Elweyon Forest, the sawmill has Sawmills. All of them, regardless of who owns them, are dominated by a ''giant'' rotary blade three times the height and width of your character. No guard rails or other safety features prevent you from walking right up to it, if you have the courage to. While there doesn't seem to be anything that can turn it them on and or any proof that's it's they're used to cut anything accept wood, it's very difficult to go near the thing.

* The mana bomb that destroyed Theramore was enhanced with the Focusing Iris, the most powerful artifact of the Blue Dragonflight, the guardians of magic. The blast was so powerful it warped the fabric of reality itself, altered the physical structure of anyone caught up in it, and is speculated to have destroyed not just Theramore, but ''every single possible existence of Theramore in every single possible timeline.'' Keep in mind that this was a city inhabited mostly by refugees from Lordaeron who helped defeat Archimonde at Mount Hyjal. The only consolation is that it was probably a quick death for those who got caught up in the explosion...
