** YMMV, but [[spoiler: Taylor's death]] coming so close on the heels of [[spoiler: Nazgrim's death]] is tragic. Both Horde and Alliance lose two heroes they journeyed throughout many quests and zones with, and the two aforementioned heroes who engaged in witty banter, battles to the death, and arguably a "if I can't kill you" bromance, [[spoiler: die so close together in time to one another]] makes this sad indeed.

** By proxy: the Mogu were initially introduced as {{Generic Doomsday Villain}}s. Once you obtain a series of scrolls detailing their backstory, Lorewalker Cho muses that in fact, the Mogu did everything they did [[WellIntentionedExtremist because they thought it was for the best]]/[[WellDoneSonGuy it was what the Titans would have wanted]]. During this, he walks around in a circle, while various images of major charaters from ''Warcraft'' lore and their children appear near him to illustrate the point.

During this, he walks around in a circle, while various images of major charaters from ''Warcraft'' lore and their children appear near him to illustrate the point.point. * The short "Dreadmaul Rock" quest chain in the Burning Steps. A troll asks you to check on his wife Sha'ni who was out on an investigation and hasn't reported back yet. You go to the area in question, and there's no sign of her... until you click on some bones lying on a stone platform. Sha'ni's ghost appears and explains that her platoon was captured by ogres. Everyone but her was executed - she was strapped to an alter by the leader and brutalized. She died an hour into the torture, at which point the ogre ripped off her wedding nose-ring as a trophy. Sha'ni can't rest until her husband knows her fate, so you find and kill the ogre leader and bring Sha'ni's wedding ring back to her husband: -->'''Thal'trak:''' Did you find Sha'ni? Is she okay? -->(''Thal'trak collapses.'') -->'''Thal'trak:''' We were going to move to the Hinterlands. Did she tell you? This was going to be her last mission... -->(''You give him the ring. Thal'trak sobs.'') -->'''Thal'trak:''' I don't want it. Keep it, throw it away, I don't care! The ring means nothing to me now. Not without her... * The Alliance version of the quest Letter for Home combines this and one mother of a [[PlayerPunch gut check]]. You kill a servant of the Blue Dragonflight, and [[spoiler: it turns out that she was working to sabotage the Flight from the inside, and only worked with them so her family wasn't killed. Then you find a letter addressed to her father]]. [[PlayerPunch I love you, Daddy]]. * The "Fall of The Lich King" trailer. Despite [[MoralEventHorizon everything that]] [[WhatTheHellHero he has done]], you will probably shed ManlyTears again for Arthas' demise, as he seemingly remember who he was and regrets all the atrocities he had brought in his final momments. This is doubled with Bolvar's HeroicSacrifice in the same cutscene. ** The scene is made especially poignant by the fact that it's the spirit of his father--one of the first people he murdered after losing his soul to [[EvilWeapon Frostmourne]]--that comforts him. * Arthas gets one in ''Wrath of the Lich King''. He lies broken and sees his father's ghost. His father tells him that his reign is over and the "no king rules forever." Arthas finally realizes the folly of his actions and dies, but not before giving some gut wrenching final words. "I See... Only Darkness... Before Me." After all that evil and cruelty he dies broken and alone. Manages to actually make you feel sorry for him. ** Made even worse with the revelation that Arthas' good side was still part of him all along fighting back his evil side. After enduring years of this torment he still dies alone and hated by every living being in the world with no further chance at redemption. ** And the final nail in this coffin is what happens after. Sylvanas finds Arthas's spirit, a small boy, trapped in a void of endless torment, the end he ended up digging himself into after years of service and reign as the Lich King. * Basically ALL of the followup quests from The Unsealed Chest. If you defeated The Lich King while someone had Shadowmourne equipped, an extra special box would drop with an item in it, an item belonging to someone the Lich King affected heavily. Every bit of dialogue afterwards tugs at the heartstrings, despite all the bastardly things he did, most are about how close friends still choose to remember him for the good person he was in life. But there are two other items from major people in his storyline. Describing them doesn't really do them justice, so [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFHC68EzPJg listen to them here, at around the 5:58 Mark]] To wit: ** Blood of Sylvanas. Sylvanas is relieved that the Lich King is finally dead. Yet she wonders how many people are freed of his grasp, [[AndImustscream but still unable to control their body.]] She shoos the player away to brood. ** Badge of the Silver Hand. Uther talks about the many, many, burdens his soul carried from his failure to keep Arthas in check. Yet, there is one memory that he will choose to keep about him. The dedication and hope to defend his kingdom when he was young, no matter what the cost. HE thanks the player and leaves ** Arthas' Training Sword. [[spoiler: Muradin]] recalls the many days Arthas trained with this dull sword, to become a capable warrior. He then laments how things could have been different and avoided if he had never chose to look for Frostmourne. Sadly, he says goodbye to Arthas. ** Jaina's Locket. Jaina is shocked to learn that after all these years, after all the horrible things he had done, Arthas had kept the locket Jaina gave to him. She believes that there was still some light in Arthas, despite all he did, and hopes that he finds peace in the next life. ** Alexandros' Soulshard. Alexandros appears before Mograine one last time. Mograine is understandably happy that his father's soul is alright, yet wonders how he kept his sanity. How did his dear father keep it? He held onto one memory, one special moment. The day Mograine sacrificed himself to save his father from a possibly even longer period of torment.

* D.E.H.T.A's questline in Northerend is capable of wringing tears by having you to free elephant babies from painful traps and prevent poachers from killing baby deer, but Blizzard really manages to shake those players who have been paying attention to the in-game lore with one of the final quests. The druids will send you on a quest to murder Harold Lane who oversees the hunter's camp. Many of the players don't probably remember him by the time you receive the quest, but he's one of the hunters you hunt with in Nagrand, namely the wounded man who is delirious from infection, his condition growing worse with every quest, and prior of coming to Northerend, the player is left without knowledge whether he will pull through or die due to his injuries. Think about it; He survives dreadful wounds and a painful infection, just to be murdered by the same player who was there to help him and sit through his fever-induced delirium, just because a group of fanatic, self-righteous druids said so. ** Actually, Harold Lane was faking it--or at least playing it up--the entire time. It becomes quite obvious that he was simply playing up his injury out of laziness. If you sit around him long enough, he starts playing little emotes like "Harold Lane begins to whistle a tune, but then stops abruptly and moans.". While there is no denying that DEHTA are all completely insane fanatics, Harold Lane is not nearly as innocent as he seems.

* Even though many people hate him, Garrosh Hellscream is honestly one huge crowning moment of tearjerking if you think about it. He grew up thinking his father was a monster surrounded by other people who ALSO thought the same thing and likely looked at him as if he was going to snap any minute and murder them all [[spoiler: perhaps a foreshadowing of him [[AxeCrazy DOING EXACTLY THAT]] in Mists?]]. When Thrall came to Nagrand and told him the truth...just...ManlyTears, if you can get over hating him enough to actually see WHY he is the way he is. [[spoiler: This doesn't give him an out for [[MoralEventHorizon what he did to Theramore]] or [[YouCantGoHomeAgain what he tried]] [[AttemptedGenocide to do]] to the Night Elves ]] but it makes you think that MAYBE he's just trying to get other people to like him. He really just wants to make the Horde proud, but seems to think the Horde is still his father's bloodlusting demonic Horde. ** Also, he has ZERO surviving family members and his foster mother (Geyah) is dying. When Thrall came and started treating him like a child (Garrosh is actually OLDER!) this really got on his nerves since his father and Thrall were more like brothers than the father/son relationship Thrall seemed to be wanting with Garrosh. Garrosh also never gets [[WellDoneSonGuy told he's like his father]], which is what he wants more than anything else in the world, for anything he ever did/does, except for his victory in Northrend, and anyone who has played the game can tell you that it was MOSTLY SAURFANG not Garrosh. ** Again, depending on whether you hate him or not, [[spoiler: Thrall giving Garrosh his father's axe, Gorehowl]] is a pretty epic Tear Jerker AND SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome. * Magatha Grimtotem's entire family. She [[spoiler: got SO PISSED at her son after he murdered likely hundreds of people in Thunder Bluff...but not because he tried to commit genocide, it was [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking because he wasn't discreet enough about it.]]]] It really makes you wonder what kind of horrible life and childhood he and the rest of the Grimtotems must have had under her.

*** You forget Arthas lost his soul to Frostmourne and became a Death Knight by a gambit, he lost himself a long time ago and yet still kept his memories of Jaina and ended up dying as himself. Yes he was an enemy but in more of the TragicVillian sense considering that he started as just a simple paladin with good intentions and ended up loosing sight of all that over time.

* There is a Tauren character in Bloodhoof Village in Mulgore named Ahab Wheathoof who asks you to find his dog. Cue tearjerk, as Ahab Wheathoof was designed and voiced by Ezra 'Ephoenix' Chatterton, a 10 year old boy with a brain tumor (whose story is pretty [[http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/255423/blizzard_makeawish_help_ezra_chatterton.html tearjerkery]] itself.) Ezra died a little while after the visit to Blizzard studios. Further tearjerker, as in December of 2009, Blizzard began to sell non-combat in-game pets, and for one of their first - a Pandaren Monk - they donated half the money they received to the Make-a-Wish Foundation. $1.1 million was donated through this.

Cue tearjerk, as Ahab Wheathoof was designed and voiced by Ezra 'Ephoenix' Chatterton, a 10 year old boy with a brain tumor (whose story is pretty [[http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/255423/blizzard_makeawish_help_ezra_chatterton.ocregister.com/news/chatterton-191512-game-blizzard.html tearjerkery]] itself.)
