* The Dalaran Heist mode is mostly lighthearted and campy with one exception: The battle against Kalecgos. Out of all the encounters, he's the only one that treats your destructive rampage as the serious, life-threatening crime it is, and the harsh WhatTheHellHero speech he gives to you throughout the entire battle may be jarring enough to make you regret the entire playthrough.


* [[HopeSpot Tirion Fordring arrived just 1 turn too late to save Jaina from being defeated and turned into the Lich King's servant]] in the Prologue of the Knights of the Frozen Throne. The worst part is that it's a HopelessBossFight, so no matter what she (and the players) does, they will not succeed. This make his IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight against her as Frost Lich Jaina all the more heartbreaking.

* On a meta level, the announcement of Ben Brode, who's more or less the face of the dev team, [[EndOfAnAge leaving Blizzard to set off on his own ventures]] led to ManlyTears being shed all around in the fanbase.

* The Death Knight Card Flavour texts are ''not'' the standard cavalcade of funny - the KnightOfCerebus status of the Death Knights is played absolutely straight - many of them having crossed the DespairEventHorizon after their deaths.

* Rhonin's Deathrattle cry is pretty sad because it mirrors his HeroicSacrifice in the bombing of Theramore. But the reward (3 Arcane Missiles to your hand) would easily win the game for the Mage player (whose default hero is Jaina - the one he originally saved from the bombing).

* You've finally done it, you've invaded the dread citadel Naxxramas, slain all the bosses and looted all there was to loot. But the game still gets the final YouBastard in before you leave: [[http://i.imgur.com/6pRAyGv.jpg You've invaded an old man's home, and beat up him and his cat.]] Happy now?
