I don't read alot of the quest text... only the important stuff, but the one that got me was on the western edge of Dragonblight, the maw quest line, where as you are killing these guys, they are begging for mercy. Of course if I granted them mercy they would just go on beating me senseless, so I did justify it and made it through, but I think Blizzard should realize the immersion they have created in the game, and avoid the little things that just doesn't set right morally. You are a hero, and your goal is to save the world and destroy the bad guy. I don't have a problem if the boss is begging for mercy while you kill him, but I do the minions. As far as torture quest chains, and the DK starting area, they are wrong in so many ways, however with the DK area, you acutaly start out as a bad guy and change your ways a few levels later so it's not entirely wrong.

In an ideal situation your character may have chosen to avoid helping such people do heinous things. I'm sure in all reality you have tons of gold in your pockets, but if your not reading the quest text then you've been missing the fact that there is no love in this harsh climate. Yeah it would be nice if you could let people go, but the minute you take your eyes of them they could stab you in the back. Heroes are made of tough stuff, not basket of flowers, so making sure that you get the job done to help your faction reach its goals in defeating one of the vilest evils in Azeroth may get some hurt.Being a hero is no easy choice and you could probably put a moral system in the game but most wouldn't appreciate it or notice it. Something like... letting someone go, but they have a chance of one shotting you and doubling your durability loss. People would hate that sort of event, but I assure you that it would get the point across real fast about letting the beggers live.

I think High Commander Wyrmbane at Wintergarde really sums it up in his chat pane:"Through the valleys and peaks of Mount Hyjal, across the shifting sands of Silithus, against the Legion's dread armies - we have fought. We are the nameless, faceless, sons and daughters of the Alliance. By the Light and by the might of the Alliance, the first strike belongs to us and the last strike is all that our enemies see.We are 7th Legion. "
