[[quoteright:215:[[AscendedMeme http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Leeroy.JPG]]]]

Since it's existed for nearly eight years and has a dev team that loves to get in on the fun, it's no surprise that ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has as many memes as it does.

[[caption-width-right:215:[[WebVideo/LeeroyJenkinsVideo All right chums, let's do this!]]]]

----
'''Please add entries in the following format:'''
* The meme. [=[[labelnote:Explanation]]The explanation behind the meme.[[/labelnote]]=] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Like this.[[/labelnote]]

----
%%Explaining all the memes. Join in if you know the origins, feel free to correct me as I have not been around for all of these.

* [[http://www.wowpedia.org/Saurfang_facts If Saurfang]] [[DrivenToSuicide killed himself]], [[MemeticBadass everyone else would die instead.]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Saurfang's fame originated from when he could be mind controlled by Alliance players raiding Orgrimmar. He was a very effective Horde-killing tool, with Cleave as his signature move.[[/labelnote]]
** Only [[http://www.wowpedia.org/Hogger_(tactics) Hogger]] would stand a chance against him.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Hogger's infamy is also likely due to the fact that for many Alliance races (human, gnome, and dwarf) he's the very first Elite they ever see. First timers tend to not understand precisely what the Elite tag means, go at him, and get slaughtered. In this sense, he has something of a Horde counterpart in Flat Tusk. Not to mention the fact that Hogger has exactly 666 health points... as does Flat Tusk, oddly enough. He's somewhat of an ascended meme: one of the statistics tracked by the game is "deaths by Hogger" and in Cataclysm he's [[spoiler: the final boss of the Stormwind Stockades instance.]][[/labelnote]] Or they could team up and look for [[http://www.wowpedia.org/Mankrik%27s_Wife Mankrik's wife]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]In the Barrens, there is a quest given by an orc named Mankrik to look for his wife. She was incredibly hard to find, which would often result in new players using the zone's general chat to ask for help. Unfortunately Barren's general chat was the equivalent of 4chans /b/ at the time and several magnitudes worse than bad CoD chat[[/labelnote]]
*** The Mankrik meme has reached [[AscendedMeme ascended]] status: in a quest in Thousand Needles, the player has become haunted by a troll's ghost; in one of his randomly appearing monologues, he reminisces about the Barrens, then asks, "Hey, did they ever find out what happened with Mankrik's wife?"
** Saurfang? Pfft. Lord Darius Crowley ''cleaves with his fists.''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Lord Darius Crowley does cleave attacks without a weapon and is generally badass in the Worgen starting zone.[[/labelnote]]
*** Saurfang can do the same, he just uses the less powerful axe so we can still have a world to play in.
**** Crowley already cleaved the world in half, then he cleaved it back together.
* "Skinning a bear should aggro every bears in a 40 yard radius. It makes sense, you are skinning their best friend." [[labelnote:Explanation]]This one is from a post on the forums that followed an announcement that mining nodes near a mob would increase the likelihood that they would attack you. It's referenced by Blizzard in an April Fools' joke. A later example came when the new druid cat and bear models were revealed, and as with every change a torrent of outrage poured in on the forums. One poster commented: "Didn't you know, Blizzard? Reskinning a bear aggros every bears."[[/labelnote]]
* Rogues do it from behind.
** [[Memes/TabletopGame D&D rogues did it first]].
** Now an AscendedMeme. In content patch 4.1, an optional boss (that you may or may not get) will yell this [[HighlyVisibleNinja whenever he does a backstab attack.]]
* 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 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.[[/labelnote]]
* "GIVE WARLOCKS GREEN FIRE" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Fel magic is often represented by the color green. It's a common belief among warlocks that having their fire spells be green instead of orange would be incredibly awesome. They do get a green fire spell in Cataclysm. And in patch 5.2, Rise of the Thunder King, Warlocks get a long class quest that grants them green fire in all their fire-based spells.[[/labelnote]]
* [[NinjaLooting NOBODY TOUCH THAT CORPSE, THOSE BOOTS ARE MINE!]]
* Anal [link ability]
** reported
*** reported for reporting
**** reported for reporting a report [[labelnote:Explanation]]Happens often in trade chat by linking ability, item, quest, talent, effect or achievement tooltips. Examples range from silly to outright gross (anal [Blood Spatter]). Variants include chains such as [Ferocious Butt][Pounding][For the Children!], baby [ability], Literature/HarryPotter and the [item], and various puns and song lyrics.[[/labelnote]]
* Movie titles are better with Murlocs [[labelnote:Explanation]]Another trade chat spam tactic, where movie titles are modified to have Murloc in them.[[/labelnote]]
* "[[Level80EliteTaurenChieftain I Am King of the Sea/but I'm not Aquaman!]]"
* And lest ye forget: '''''[[WebVideo/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]]
* [[http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=31008 Hammer of Vindication]] is overpowered!
** [[http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=51663 Slap in the Face]] is even more so.
** [[http://www.wowhead.com/?npc=24324#comments Oh no!]]
* Jingle bells, (humans/Forsaken) smell, a (night elf/tauren) laid an egg; (gnomes/trolls) are n00bs and (dwarves/orcs) are boobs and (draenei/blood elves) can't get laid!
** A mock Christmas carol highlighting cross-faction feelings.
* LF [[RougeAnglesOfSatin rouge]] to unlock (lockbox)!
** Why do you need a French communist for that?
** Rouges are overpowdered![[labelnote:Explanation]]Rogues are famous for having an easily misspelled class name, and many jokes have been made about it.[[/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]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtvIYRrgZ04 "More DOTS. Throw more DOTS. OK Stop DOTS! FUUUUUUUUUUUCK! WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT?"]]
** That's a '''50 DKP MINUS!!!!!''' [[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 feared into Onyxia's whelps.[[/labelnote]]
** MANY WHELPS! HANDLE IT!
*** From a rather (in)famous and [[NarmCharm narmful]] video featuring a rather loud raid leader. Now also an AscendedMeme. When Onyxia was re-tooled for Wrath, she was given new achievements that are all either from this or the meme below.
* 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]]
* Paladin nerfs? TO THE GROUND, BABY!
* Everyone is necrophiliac for [[TheUndead Sylvanas]].
** Everyone is [[FurryFandom furry]] for [[PettingZooPeople Lady Vashj]], and [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Alexstrasza]]. [[http://img56.imageshack.us/img56/4802/queenalexstraszalt3.jpg Don't believe me? See her for yourself!]]
* King Varian Wrynn: Lord of the Chin.
** CHINTERCEPTED! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The comic's art style is rather exaggerated. Among other things, Varian tends to be drawn with a huge chin.[[/labelnote]]
** King Varian Chynn.
* TOO SOON! IT IS TOO SOON!! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Yelled by Ragnaros during his battle.[[/labelnote]]
** This one reached AscendedMeme status in ''Lich King''; one of your Wolvar companions in Scholazar Basin repeats the line, and several other infamous/famous boss quotes, as you quest with him. Evidently he heard them when adventurers such as you told him about the encounters.
*** It was "ascended" as early as ''Burning Crusade''; in the Hewn Bog of Zangarmarsh, one of the ogres overseeing the operation has a chance of saying "Too soon! You are slacking off too soon!"
** BY FIRE BE PURGED!!
** [[http://www.wowhead.com/?npc=11502 Ragnar-Os]]! "Two scoops, Executus, two scoops!" "By fiber be purged!"
* My staff is a good one.
** LOOK IT OVER
* [[http://www.wowpedia.org/Alamo CAT DURID IS 4 FITE!!!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]There was a guy named Halbrium who did the same thing for shamans, but sadly it failed to catch on.[[/labelnote]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Nah, Halbrium is quoted just two lines down. It's ironic that his most memorable quote was the one about druids.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://thottbot.com/i13397 It's [color] and looks [something]er]] [[http://www.wowhead.com/?item=13397#comments than your average [category] or [category].]]
* OH NO WHY IS ANIMALS ON MY FACE? [[labelnote:Explanation]]From Halbrium's guide to shaman PVP, when detailing how to fight druids.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.cwsargeras.com/2009/03/scourge-chat-log-1.html >8<]] [[http://www.cwsargeras.com/2009/03/scourge-chat-log-2.html spider]] [[http://www.cwsargeras.com/2009/04/scourge-chat-log-3.html pride]]
* 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 was.[[/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]]
* GHOSTCRAWLER PROMISED ME A PONY! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Often used to mock people who complain about features that got stuck in DevelopmentHell or just dropped for the time being.[[/labelnote]]
*** AscendedMeme: [[http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=6025 I Was Promised A Pony]]
** DEATHWING PROMISED ME A PONY!
** [[http://wow.joystiq.com/2010/02/26/winter-olympics-2010-ghostcrawler-promised-me-a-moose/ GHOSTCRAWLER PROMISED ME A MOOSE!]]
* [[http://www.wowhead.com/?achievement=1261 "This (change/statement)]] is a [[http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=51663 slap in the face]] to (affected class/players)."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yBY-T2MDkU IN THE MOUNTAINS]]
* Hello, Barrens Chat! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Barrens chat, since alleviated by Cataclysm, has become infamous due to the fact that the Barrens are huge, and for the most part, empty. Bored people leveling and questing would often post things on general chat. And the Barrens cover about 20 levels worth of quests, so there were a lot of people for a long time.[[/labelnote]]
* 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!
*** FOOL! YOU'VE ACTIVATED MY TRAP CARD! [[labelnote:Explanation]]the latter two were common responses to someone mentioning the Ashbringer[[/labelnote]]
* 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]]
* "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]]
* 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 BURNING LEGION, YOUR ARROGANCE SHALL BE YOUR INFERNO!]]
* 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]]
*** Is now an important part of the lore and quests concerning the blood elves in Mists of Pandaria and is shown to be a capable leader who cares for his people and questions Garrosh's ambitions and leadership.
*** 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.
* The ice stone has melted!
** The ice stone has melted!
** The ice stone has melted!
** The ice stone has melted!
** The ice stone has melted! [[labelnote:Explanation]]A bug during the Midsummer event caused this message to flood the chat boxes of players on the entire realm server, instead of just those in the 5-man dungeon where it happened. It was an event that pretty much everyone at the level cap did daily.[[/labelnote]]
* [[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]]
* Tauren and Draenei rogues exist, they're just so good at stealth that even their class selection button is hidden at the character creation screen. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A joke about Draenei and Tauren PC's being unable to use the rogue class.[[/labelnote]]
** When you go to loot a mob you killed and nothing is there? Tauren rogue (or draenei rogue).
** If you fell off Aldor Rise, a draenei rogue pushed you. If you fell off Thunder Bluff, a tauren rogue pushed you.
** Have you ever seen a tauren rogue? (No.) ''Exactly''!
** Officially an AscendedMeme as of ''Mists of Pandaria'' thanks to [[http://www.wowhead.com/npc=68870#comments Mishka]] who is not only a Draenei Rogue, but also a Rogue Healer using Bandages.
* [[http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e388/vertidog/catdps.jpg JOHN FUCKING MADDEN]]
** Now you see, the Ogres are the biggest guys on the field. There's nobody on the field bigger than the Ogres, that's why they're the biggest guys on the field. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Feral druid DPS is considered one of the most complicated "rotations" in the game.[[/labelnote]]
* "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]]
* When's that new feature coming? Soon[[superscript:[[TradeSnark TM]]]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Blizzard is ''infamous'' for not giving solid dates on patches and hotfixes. Not even a progress report on how they're doing.[[/labelnote]]
* "WhyAmITicking"
** "Because you are the bomb. Run!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A common trick for old (and new) bosses is to make one player actively detrimental to the others. This is the most famous example, though sadly, this raid has been removed.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5r7vZKzTEJQ I WILL ENGULF AS I PLEASE!]] (0:18)
* Warlocks ride [[AllInARow single file]] [[http://azeroth.metblogs.com/2006/06/22/warlocks-ride-in-single-file/ to hide their numbers]]
* '''WORKING AS INTENDED.''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Blizzard, when asked about a feature or event that makes little to no sense or that players don't appreciate will usually respond with this, unless it's a bug. [[AscendedGlitch Which it sometimes may be both.]][[/labelnote]]
* [[{{Troll}} Why is Arthas' mount called]] [[RougeAnglesOfSatin Invincible]] [[ComicallyMissingThePoint if I can see it]]?
* 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.
* HOW I MINE FOR FISH
* Did he drop any good loot? [[labelnote:Explanation]]Often seen in trade chat (The new Barrens, as above) when people are tired of seeing '(celebrity) died / RIP'[[/labelnote]]
* You will melt faces as a shadow priest in PVP.
* [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment You will melt faces as a shadow priest in PVP.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]For the longest time people considered Shadow spec for priests to be an absolute joke in raids, and was relagated to PVP combat due to it's many "frustration" abilities. Has since died down due to many buffs to shadow's damage of late.[[/labelnote]]
* 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]]
* [[{{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]]
** 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:Explaination]]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.[[/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:Explaination]]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]]
* [[AllThereInTheManual check patch notes]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]When someone asks about a recent or upcoming change in trade, someone will always say "check patch notes"[[/labelnote]]
* 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.]]
* World Of Warcraft.......Catacalysm (kuh-tack-uh-liz-um) will change the gameplay forever.
* 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...'
* Thrall's balls! They're everywhere...
** [[{{Squick}} Fangirls... *shudder*]]
** [[YaoiFangirl Other fangirls]]: {{Squee}}
* [[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.
* [Dirge]
* The Rainbow Generator item, which shoots rainbows at enemies. It does very weak damage, but it's recently 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 [[LostForever 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]]
* Any comment regarding the Draenei's status as Blizzard's {{Unfavorite}} [[labelnote:Explanation]]The draenei were a late addition to the Burning Crusade expansion, and their integration into the Alliance was, and still is, lacking. At Blizzcon 2010, Blizzard even admitted that they failed at implementing the race properly.[[/labelnote]]
** "Draenei 2.0" [[labelnote:Explanation]]When Cataclysm came out, the Worgen were called "Draenei 2.0" because some felt that the implementation of the Worgen race was a repeat of the Draenei fiasco.[[/labelnote]]
* WOW is hard. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Frequent response to people having trouble with WOW, complaining about any aspect being too hard or even sometimes asking for advice.[[/labelnote]]
* GO'EL, GO'EL, GO'EL, GO'EL... [[labelnote:Explanation]] [[SatelliteLoveInterest Aggra]] during a recent 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.
* "Can I have your stuff?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Players who feel the need to rant about the game on the forums before they quit (which 75% of the time they don't) tend to annoy the forum lurkers, they usually show absolute disinterest and ask if the person can give them their gold/gear/whathaveyou, sometimes with the implication that they believe said quitters are unlikely to be serious.[[/labelnote]]
* Knowing Blizzard, he'll probably go crazy and become a raid boss. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A joke on the fact that one of Blizzard's favorite ways to make bosses for raids is to have a good or neutral character go insane by various means (Examples include Kael'thas, Malygos, Fandral Staghelm and Archbishop Benedictus). Many feel this method is overused.[[/labelnote]]
* '''Horde bias!''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Complaints on the official forums about Blizzard favoring the Horde got so out of hand that if someone doesn't like something, another person will humorously call this out. Even if it's a bad thing for the Horde and/or good for Alliance.[[/labelnote]]
* "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 recently revealed, and already 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.
* 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 with the difference that these people are asking how to minipet battle before the expansion is released[[/labelnote]]
* " was/is right".[[labelnote:Explanation]]Characters usually referenced with this meme are Daelin "Kill all orcs" Proudmoore, Malygos, the "Kill all mortal magic users" Blue Dragon Aspect, and Varian "Destroy the Horde" Wrynn, but it may be used with any character that expresses a controversial viewpoint. May come in the form of an opinion piece on why the subject is right and/or an image macro depicting the subject.[[/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.
* "Zarcrawler", the lovechild of the developer Greg Street (aka Ghostcrawler) and community manager Zarhym. Witness its origins [[http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/9377137962?page=1 here.]]
* 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. [[labelnote:Explanation]]When Blizzard announced Warlords of Draenor at Blizzcon 2013, they... Might have overused the word 'savage'.[[/labelnote]]
* Vol'Jin for Warchief 2012 [[labelnote:Explanation]]A common Youtube comment by people who would rather have Vol'Jin as Warchief instead of Garrosh, due to how he flips off Garrosh. [[spoiler:Became an AscendedMeme in Mists of Pandera now that Thrall has named Vol'Jin his sucessor]].[[/labelnote]]
