Top 7 WoW Easter Eggs You Probably Missed


Blizzard sure loves easter eggs! Players of World of Warcraft have found a bevy of hilarious in-jokes and pop culture references hidden across Azeroth! Here are the top 7!

  1. In the quest "Breaking Bard," a bald, bespectacled, goateed crystal vendor named Waltham the White acts as the questgiver.
  2. In the quest "Running Wild," the player is tasked with retrieving 5 "racy woodcuts" of NPC Hurk Grogan and his mistress. They were carved without his knowing and he'd hate for them to go "viral"!
  3. In a clever reference to HBO's cult hit, Game of Thrones, certain NPCs can be heard saying "winter is coming" and "Peter Dinklage."
  4. In a shipwreck north of Booty Bay, player have spotted a lone polar bear. This is a fucking reference to LOST or some dumb bullshit.
  5. In Orgrimmar a robed and bearded NPC can be heard telling a guard "These are not the Droids you're looking for" and he refers to the city as a "hive of scum and villainy." These are both quotes from Lord of The Rings.
  6. The player can use a large sword, an homage to Final Fantasy 7--the only other game in history to feature large swords.
  7. In the quest "Kingdom of Mushrooms" two mustached carpenters called "The Uber Gario Cousins" ask the player to save Dutchess Peach. She is in a castle guarded by Turtle monsters and a dragon. The player beats the dragon by knocking him into a pit of lava. Instead of finding the princess, you find a sentient mushroom who says "princess is not in this castle." We actually have no idea what this is a reference to. If you have any tips, let us know in the comment section!
