Battling a baddie while on the back of a drake. Although I don`t think you can be unseated and the fight is the same as any other (except where you`re on a drake instead of the ground), it was still so fun to see the ground whizzing past below! (Also, note that if you have any sort of minipet summoned, or an autosummon macro, it will screw up the dragon summon for this quest!)

Pebble! How cute can things get?? He even makes puppy-dog eyes at you and ineffectually tries to help you fight! I don`t care how obviously intentional all of the cuteness is presented as - Pebble is The Cutest Pet and I can`t wait to get my very own!
Therazane mentioning her daughter`s death made me sad (mostly because I was partially responsible for it!), but her quest to kill her son made me sad as well. It implies that she has many other children, but having already lost one and then having to destroy another was heartbreaking to me.
At one point, a named mob you go to kill shouts "Deathwing will have his way with your Stonemother!" I was pretty disgusted by this threat to rape a female character. Especially because this is explicitly a threat of gendered violence - had it been, say, Thrall who was referenced, it wouldn`t even occur to use the language "have his way with your Warchief" because the cultural narrative states that rape is something that happens to women. This quote was definitely a shock of cold water in what was otherwise an enjoyable zone.
ALSO, they made up a super cool new earth elemental-type mob and made it some two-bit assistant to the old BC rock dude models? Whose bright idea was that??
