Aside from some of the ones mentioned - The Missing Diplomat, and the strangeness of being a tauren helping an enemy of the taurens, I can't think of a specific storyline.But, I would have liked to see some kind of scene where the shattering happens. As far as our characters know, they 'went to bed one night' and woke up and stuff was destroyed/changed. This does happen with natural disasters, people wake up either because of it or after it to see the destruction.. but there are witnesses - people who see things happening. Some that live to tell the story, others who don't survive. We know that we all, our characters, survive.. there wouldn't be a game if they didn't. We know of people in the game who didn't survive (Brann, Cairne), but what about someone who witnessed something and lived to tell about it. There are those quests in Darkshore where you help rescue people that were in Auberdine and bring them to Lordinel. What if there was a cutscene where we get to see (more of) what happened there. I know we saw in the cinematic the wave crashing into the bridge and destroying it.. which destroyed the inn that was attached to it. What I think would have been neat to see is before that happened. People in the inn, then the sky gets weird, the waves come up and destroys the bridge/inn and so on.Or, something I just thought of. There is an achievement called surveying the damage, where if you go look at certain places hardest hit, you get the achievement. It would be cool if this were a kind of collected quest thing like the Nessingwarys that grant achievements. The first could be started in either stormwind (or orgrimmar, but I'm not familiar with the horde side of this), but lets say that from the stormwind board, you're sent to go talk to someone in darkshore. So you go there, and when you talk to the person you see what happened there. When that quest completes, that person tells you that there is more destruction to see, go talk to someone else some where else (thousand needles, and I forget the other 3-4 places). Where each one shows you what happened in that place, and the last one sends you back to the town you started in to tell "the guy", in the stormwind example - Varian, what you have seen. I realize thats not going to happen, but it woulda been cool. :)
