** "Arise, my champion!" "At your side! Milady!" These two voice clips became so synomymous with World of Warcraft's Scarlet Monastery dungeon that when it was remade with one of the [[DualBoss bosses]] changed and the voice clips recorded, this was kept. It was that popular.

** This can be invoked by players during the "Opening of the Dark Portal" questline. One part required the player to create a powder trail to a building so that it could be ignited and blown up. However, there's no set amount of powder in the keg and it's only one objective out of that area - and the powder keg essentially drops a long black line wherever you went. Cue players doing things like saving it for last just so they could create hilariously improbable powder keg lines such as trying to cover the entire area in black, running around in circles to cause a spiral, spelling words out in cursive, or drawing symbols with the powder. The best part was the game even ''remembers'' the way you walked so you could create a huge wall of powder and it will ''still'' travel in the direction you walked.

** Sylvanas being made Warchief. Some feel that she was the next best candidate, while others think it should have been Baine or even Lor'themar, and others are mad that since as Warchief, Vol'jin just warmed the chair Sylvanas would sit on due to being OutOfFocus in Warlords.



** The fanbase complained about long convoluted attunement quest chains and being unable to complete them because [[CantCatchUp nobody would lift a finger to help]]. Now that that's no longer required and you don't have to run a dozen dungeons (That nobody wants to do anymore) and hope your token actually drops so guilds will look in your general direction. Then they complained about how annoyingly hard the game was only now are complaining about "Casuals" taking over the game. (Don't try pointing out that there are in fact heroic raids meant ''specifically'' for these "Core" players, or that they offer stronger gear and require much more coordination than Raid Finder - they're not listening.)

** Some fans see Lor'themar as this to Kael'thas as leader of the Blood Elves. It didn't help when Kael got KilledOffForReal.

** Some fans see Lor'themar as this to Kael'thas as leader of the Blood Elves. The real reason is more that he was [[RememberTheNewGuy content to just stand around despite always being there]] and since The burning Crusade, has [[OutOfFocus been a wallflower next to Gallywix while Thrall and Sylvanas dominate the horde]] storyline. It didn't help when Kael got KilledOffForReal.KilledOffForReal with not even so much as a RedemptionEqualsDeath.

** During classic, two enemies in low-level areas (Westfall and Silverpine Forest) were this:
*** Defias Pillager for Westfall. It was one of the first enemies (if not the first some players could encounter) who could attack with magic from range - and unlike the ones faced before, this actually would deal quite a bit of damage. StatisticallySpeaking, during Classic it was one of the ''deadliest'' mobs ''in the game'' because of the sheer amount of player deaths caused by it.
*** Son of Arugal. While not as deadly StatisticallySpeaking (players were able to retreat and Silverpine wasn't as popular as Westfall or Barrens) it could still [[ParanoiaFuel appear with virtually no warning]] and was probably a lot higher level than you. Some players even took this as a hint that they shouldn't go to that zone yet.


Added DiffLines:

** The Sons of Arugal pre-Cataclysm. They stalked around Silverpine Forest and could on occasion jump the player out of ''nowhere''.

** While it has [[SocietyMarchesOn changed due to Cataclysm]], mobs like Hogger and the Defias Pillager were considered deadly. Statistics done during Classic showed that the Defias pillager ''was one of the top 5 deadliest mobs'' due to the fact it was responsible for a ''lot'' of player deaths!

* AuthorsSavingThrow: ''Legion'', through and through, such that one Reddit commenter called it the "In case of emergency, break glass" expansion. Artifact weapons and the chance to obtain the long sought-after ''[[InfinityPlusOneSword Ashbringer]]''. Illidan is alive again, and with any luck, he'll get that redemption story the fans have longed for. The elven races of either faction, the Night Elves and Blood Elves, are all slated to get some focus after two entire expansions spent DemotedToExtra. Demon Hunters are finally becoming a playable hero class, and only available to the Night/ Blood Elves (As previously mentioned, they are getting some focus). Class and spec identity is being advertised as a big focus, with some specs getting completely new focuses to make them more unique, after an expansion of pragmatic ability cuts for space; this also includes player characters joining factions limited to their own class, with potential for class-specific quests. As the backdrop, we finally get to face the long-awaited return of the Burning Legion head-on, something that has been built up since ''Burning Crusade'', after two expansions that have often been criticized as sidestories. The setting is basically Northrend II + the [=WotA=] trilogy. Even with all these crowd-pleasers, however, only time will tell if it can WinBackTheCrowd the way ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' managed to.

* FanNickname: Several, such as high-ranking Darnassus druid Fandouche Toolhelm.
** Classes that are perceived as requiring no skill to play receive derogatory monikers, such as "Death Knoob" or "Huntard".
** Unusually easy fights are often given "loot-" nicknames, implying the designers might as well have placed the loot in a box for players to retrieve. Examples include Loot Reaver and Lootship.
** One of the first bits of paid downloadable content is the Celestial Steed, aka Sparklepony.
** Xal'atath, the Shadow Priest Artifact Weapon, has received the nickname "Knaifu". A {{Portmanteau}} of "Knife" and "Waifu", or a fictional character you would want to date or marry. Presumably fans who use this nickname are ArousedByTheirVoice.



** Illidan/Maiev have been touted since Warcraft 3, then made a comeback with Legion. [[/folder]]

* MagnificentBastard: Kil'jaeden. They don't call him ''[[MeaningfulName The Deceiver]]'' for nothing. He studied the Orcs for years before slowly misleading them with false visions and promises of power. They were so enthralled that eventually he was able to appear before them in his true form and almost no one noticed or cared that he looked exactly like the people they were killing because he told them to. And he made such a smooth transition from "this is the will of the ancestors" to "the old ways are weak and worthless, bow down to me now" that no one realized what was happening until it was too late.

* AssPull: TheReveal that Fenris Wolfbrother was Durotan's big brother and Thrall's uncle. Totally out of the blue, not supported by any prior lore and almost certainly just a hat trick pulled to make Fenris even more of a scumbag and account for Garad's absence.
