- Cairne holds his own quite well in his duel with Garrosh, and would have won if he had not been paralyzed by Magatha's poison.
- Anduin calling his father out on invading Ironforge and trying to kill Moira, a mixture of What the Hell, Hero? and You Are Better Than You Think You Are combined with everything Anduin has learned about the dwarves in his time there.
- Baine's refusal to kill Magatha for killing his father. He gives her a "The Reason You Suck" Speech, and exiles her, without the quarter of her followers who chose to join him, clearly showing that while a part of him wants revenge, he has managed to overcome this desire for the good of his people.
- Garrosh's reply to Magatha's request for support demonstrates that he was a much better writer than a Warchief.
"You are on your own, Magatha, as friendless and disliked as you have ever been. Perhaps more. Enjoy your loneliness."
