It's a truth we all must face: Wrath of the Lich King is coming to a close. Whether you loved it, hated it or something in between, it is time to look forward to the new expansion. With the excitement of a whole new cataclysmic event on the horizon, one can't help but look back on the recent past. There were some glorious moments in Wrath: the Wrathgate quest line leading up to the Battle for the Undercity, epic battles in Wintergrasp, and equally epic encounters like Algalon in Ulduar and the Lich King in Icecrown Citadel all come to mind.

About three months after the expansion's release with the start of the holiday Love is in the Air, a bug caused the message The Ice Stone has melted! to be spammed in everyone's chat logs. And let us not forget the fiasco that was Additional instances cannot be launched, please try again later that prevented thousands of players from entering dungeons until servers were upgraded with new hardware months after it started popping up.

There was a lot of fun to be had in Wrath of the Lich King. There was a lot to feel nostalgic about. However, Wrath was far from perfect. What won't you miss about this expansion?
