The Sands of Time are plentiful but precious. Waste not a single grain.Nozdormu in World of Warcraft, Cataclysm
The Old Gods have been vanquished, yet they were only one threat to Azeroth. Many others loom on the horizon and lurk in the shadows. Know that from this day forth, the black dragonflight will honor its ancient charge and stand in defense of our world... along with its champions.Wrathion in World of Warcraft, Battle for Azeroth
Since we Aspects first realized our kind was destined to share Azeroth with the young races, we have each taken a visage that allowed us to see the world as they do. Just as importantly, it informs how they perceive us. Do you wish them to see you as a trustworthy sage? A tyrant to be feared? Distant and aloof, or warm and generous? This choice is deeply personal, and it says much about who you are as a dragon. So no, I will not tell you anything that might sway your decision.Nozdormu in World of Warcraft, Cataclysm
It was given unto me to know the very hour and method of my own death. I would never subvert it. But only one of the pathways to my destiny can be correct. And in one unfolding future, I became the leader of the infinite dragonflight. That was why I became lost in the timeways, Thrall. I was seeking understanding of how such a thing came to be. How I, who have always striven to honor the great duty the titans charged me with, could have fallen so far astray.Nozdormu in World of Warcraft, Cataclysm
I have chosen the name "Wrathion." To my knowledge, I am the last of the black dragons. My father was Deathwing, the Worldbreaker, the Aspect of Death, the Destroyer... But I hope you will not hold that against me. I have no love for my father, whose corruption destroyed my race, or for the red dragonflight, who stole away and experimented on my egg to create me.Wrathion in World of Warcraft, Mists of Pandaria
Varian: "My son. This blade does not belong to darkness. It was forged by valor."
Varok: "And also by honor."
Varian: "Its legacy, and ours, are with you."
No crown. No throne. Not even a soul left for judgement. I hated you, hunted you, and with each selfish act... became you. That is my burden to bear. But your legacy is at an end. Begone, then, Arthas Menethil. May the last whisper of your name fade and be forgotten.Sylvanas Windrunner in World of Warcraft, Shadowlands

Arthas. I died trying to stop that monster, only to wake up haunted by one with my face.Sylvanas Windrunner in World of Warcraft, Shadowlands
When Arthas struck me down, Frostmourne shattered my soul. But it was not divided into one part that was noble and another that was cruel.
Rather, it was as if a portion of my consciousness remained frozen in time while the rest of my soul carried on.
Not a Banshee Queen... Not a Ranger-General... But always a Windrunner.Sylvanas Windrunner in World of Warcraft, Shadowlands
Sylvanas: "Join us willingly or be made to serve!"
Anduin: "I thought you believed in free will, Sylvanas."
Sylvanas: "We've never had free will, little lion. But that is about to change."
Bolvar: "Strange, is it not? We both lived lives of service, and even after facing death itself, we still feel compelled to serve others."
Darion: "Sometimes the greatest act of service is to be present for those who need us."
Death was not the end I believed it to be. No rest or joyous reunions in the Light awaited me. What I witnessed challenged all I knew. With my final breath, I saw impossible places – worlds within worlds brimming with beings that defied description. It wasn't until the Helm of Domination was placed upon my head that I understood the truth I had seen: Death is not an end, but a beginning.Bolvar Fordragon in World of Warcraft, Shadowlands
Bolvar: "I had to make that sacrifice, to keep you and the rest of the world safe from that place. From that power."
Taelia: "But it wasn't just you who made that sacrifice. It was the rest of us, too. Everyone who loved you."
Bolvar: "I know. And for the pain it caused you, I will always feel sorrow. I pray that one day, you can forgive me for it."

I understand the cruelty of fate better than anyone.Sylvanas Windrunner in World of Warcraft, Battle for Azeroth
Pain. Agony. My hatred burns through the cavernous deeps. The world heaves with my torment. Its wretched kingdoms quake beneath my rage. But at last the whole of Azeroth will break and all will burn beneath the shadow of my wings!Deathwing in World of Warcraft, Cataclysm
It was power I sought... but not to conquer or rule. It was a means to an end, to save Azeroth from an unstoppable foe.Illidan Stormrage in World of Warcraft, Legion
To ask why I drink is to ask why I am fat. It is because I drink. Perhaps there is a better question.Chen Stormstout in World of Warcraft, Mists of Pandaria
Why do I drink? To quench my thirst. To lower my inhibitions. To make women appear more attractive.Chen Stormstout in World of Warcraft, Mists of Pandaria

Come in all your power and glory! For in the final hour, all must serve the one true king.Arthas Menethil in World of Warcraft, Wrath of the Lich King
Thrall: "I left that life behind. I'm no one's savior. I will not lead the Horde."
Varok: "I didn't ask. But I hoped you would at least fight for it."
Zekhan: "This be my first battle. What should I do?"
Varok: "Don't die."
Zekhan: "Yes, of course, but... if I do fall, may it be with honor."
Varok: "There will be no glory today. Only pain."
I do not rely on strength alone, Garrosh, my power is all around you.Thrall in World of Warcraft, Warlords of Draenor
Varok: "We could not fill the chasm between the Horde and Alliance if we labored a thousand years. You know this."
Anduin: "Then what are we fighting for?"
I wouldn't mind settling down in a place like this. Great views, plenty of beer... and lots of stuff to fight.Chen Stormstout in World of Warcraft, Mists of Pandaria

All who challenge me will burn in the fires of my hatred!Garrosh Hellscream in World of Warcraft, Mists of Pandaria
I have never trusted you, Sylvanas. Nor would I have ever imagined in our darkest time that you would be da one to save us. Da spirits have granted me clarity, a vision, dey whisper a name. Many will not undastand. But you must step out of da shadows and lead. You must be Warchief.Vol'jin in World of Warcraft, Legion

I am willing to end this bloodshed. But know this, if your Horde fails to uphold honor, as Garrosh did, we will end you!Varian Wrynn in World of Warcraft, Mists of Pandaria
My son, a terrible darkness has returned to our world. As before, it seeks to annihilate everything that we hold dear. I go to face it, knowing I may not return. All my life I have lived by the sword. I've seen kingdoms burn, and watched brave heroes die in vain. It's been difficult for me to trust after losing so much. But from you I have learned patience, tolerance, and faith. Anduin, I now believe as you do, that peace is the noblest aspiration. But to preserve it, you must be willing to fight!Varian Wrynn in World of Warcraft, Legion
You will be remembered as the king who sacrificed his life for nothing.Gul'dan in World of Warcraft, Legion
My son, the day you were born, the very forests of Lordaeron whispered the name... Arthas. My child, I watched with pride as you grew into a weapon of righteousness. Remember, our line has always ruled with wisdom and strength, and I know you will show restraint when exercising your great power. But the truest victory, my son, is stirring the hearts of your people. I tell you this, for when my days have come to an end, you shall be King.Terenas Menethil in World of Warcraft, Wrath of the Lich King
