There is one big thing that I'm surprised you didn't list; the growth and menace of the Forsaken. While the events of the Wrathgate certainly made a big splash, the Forsaken always were some finite group that had two purposes, as you said. They were capable allies, a little (well, a lot) creepy, but they got the job done. They kept up a war with the Scourge in WPL/EPL, a war with the Scarlet Crusade, and vigorously fought Arthas in Northrend. Now their main goal has been accomplished, and they are free to look at goal #2 - death to the living.All at once they go from an odd 5th column force of freed Scourge to a monstrous threat.One of the sources of consolation was that there were only so many Forsaken. If you destroy one, there won't be another to replace it. Now that's no longer true. Not only were their numbers recently increased with large numbers of newly-freed Scourge, but Sylvanas also has gained the Val'kyr, who can raise new Forsaken. The legions of the Forsaken are now as potentially innumerable as the Lich King's.When they were of limited population, fighting wars on all sides just to ensure their survival and were burning to bring their vengeance against Arthas the Forsaken, while amoral and creepy, could be somewhat understood. Now though... they are a very real menace.
