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.
  • 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.
  • Idiot Ball/Out-of-Character Moment: Baine, while nice, was someone previously willing to fight the Alliance when provoked, and was of course protective towards the tribes under his command. In one scene in Tides of War, Baine outright says Taurajo's destruction was justified(keep in mind this included the place being Firebombed!), and then proceeded to exile the tauren who disagreed from Thunder Bluff!
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • The destruction of Theramore, for Garrrosh.
    • Malkorok killing a tavern full of innocent people just because of two dissidents.
  • Sudden Sequel Heel Syndrome: Garrosh. Dear God, Garrosh. He may have been an abrasive and impulsive person with a taste for glorious victory before, but this book is what sets his Start of Darkness into motion, and there is neither build up nor explanation offered for his change in outlook.
  • Tear Jerker: Kalecgos disbanding the Blue Dragonflight. In the end he's standing all alone at the top of the Nexus.
