YMMV / Tides of War

  • Alas, Poor Scrappy: Rhonin may be seen as a Creator's Pet and Marty Stu, but it's hard to continue disliking him in the wake of his Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Ass Pull: For those who observed Garrosh in action during Cataclysm, his sudden leap to cartoonish levels of villainy feels really contrived and out-of-nowhere. Golden offered the explanation that Garrosh is The Corruptible and was likely influenced by Malkorok and other ill-natured advisers, but that feels like a paltry explanation that glosses over the leaps and bounds Garrosh would have to go through to reach that level of Aesop Amnesia and evilness.
  • Heartwarming Moments: Despite the tragedy of Theramore’s destruction, it is touching to see a troll shaman in the Earthen Ring comfort a draenei friend while indicating outrage over what happened.
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • The destruction of Theramore, for Garrrosh.
    • Malkorok killing a tavern full of innocent people just because of two dissidents.
  • Tear Jerker: Kalecgos disbanding the Blue Dragonflight. In the end he's standing all alone at the top of the Nexus.
