Ah swapping the first letters around of a celebrity's first and last name. Blizz, you comedy legends. Although credit should probably go to the guy who coded the part of the program which does it for them. The one that goes:
// google search for highest-hit name
// parse name to swap first letters of first and last name
// await mirth
and what do you think about the Fight Club in Undercity, with same names of the film
The Discworld references were my favorite.
There's also another Pink Floyd reference- How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your fish?
I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals.
Want REAL ester eggs? Try making macro of /chicken emote and spamming it to westfall chickens near saldean farm. You'd be surpised.
There is soooo much more to un'goro. it's ALL Nintendo land. Mario and Luigi, who make you kill plants. dinosaurs could be yoshi, I believe it is the luigi guy who makes you kill the gorillas, which are donkeykongs.
In the gnome citadel in the blade mountains in outlands everything, from the monsters to the names of the gnomes is based on Starship Troopers (try it, the gnomes wear the names of actors in that movie, dina meyer, michael ironside..)
Best of these "easter-eggs" are the ones, youre pretty sure not many others will get, as I'm sure this one is:
"The quest: The family and the fishing pole" in Darkshore got me cracked up good.
Its not even on the easter-egg site :-) .
the smiley face burnt into the ground if you go under karazhan
Mayor Quimby in the Scarlert Enclave in the Death Knight starting zone. That made me laugh even if it is an odviouse one.
I love the mission that makes you go to Azshara and pick up the crystals that the big elite rocks are crapping out. Every once inawhile youd get a note from someone that they ate. Think it starts with the X hero of the Horde guy right as you go into blasted lands.
In regard to Ghost Busters, there is a mage quest in the mages tower at Stormwind that sends you to capture mana elementals at the nearby tavern, using a device similar to the device they use to suck the phantoms into a can
This quest is just for mages I think
The three bankers in Stormwind are named : Olivia Burnside, Newton Burnside and John Burnside
Joke references to modern pop culture have never had any place in medieval fantasy MMO's and have always been a major hit upon immersion. So Blizzard does itself no favors by inserting some of this crap.
What they could have done is inserted hidden dungeons, rooms, and caves that people would really have to look for or stumble upon. Such stuff adds much mystique and wonder to a fantasy world.
Once again, it is apparent that 1) Polish, 2) Accessibility, and 3) Simplicity and keystones to a "popular" MMO, and this is ALL Blizzard has really accomplished with WOW.
Man I remeber when in Vanilla EQ that there were walls that were illusions that you would have to learn where they were to access area's of importance. Man that was serious easter eggs. Great grinding on luclin thanks to those easter eggs.

Awesome so where's the game successful game to your credit? I mean you tell us that joke references to modern pop culture have no place in medieval fantasy so I assume you have made something successful for us to take your word for that. Let me explain something to you as an artist myself, very little we create isn't inspired by something in someway whether the connection is obvious or not. After reading this thread I noticed a great many things I never made a connection to what inspired it even though I had played the content and experienced the source material many times over, the truth is it is simply a way that Blizzard uses to add depth to the game and if you play any other game you should be envious of WOw players because there devs care enough to develop such a rich encompassing world as this.
but yeah, to call this game Fantastic is like calling Twilight the Godfather of vampire movies....
I always thought "The 2 ring" was pretty funny.
+22 Strength, Agility, Stamina, Intellect, Spirit
and the flavor text was "Vastly superior to the 1 ring"
Hemet Nesingwary in Stranglethorn is an anagram for Earnest hemingway.
I don't even believe in Jeebus.
My favorite are Lebronski and Walt at the Explorer's league outpost in the Fjords => reference to "The Big Lebowski".
The related quest makes you walk on his rug with a rune construct.
"The Dude, over yonder, is pretty upset about his rug."
"You're out of your element, Lebronski!"
a quest in grizzly hills in northrend you will find in a cave a human character locked in a cage inside a tombHarrson Ford

i always like a lot two references:
1. in ungoro, there is quest chasing a-me (chasing amy is a movie by kevin smith) and also the mechanical gorilla from that quest (A-me) is imo reference to the gorilla Amy from movie Congo (she I think even say the same thing, like "Amy good gorilla" etc.)
2. in Auchinduon in front of the entrance to the Auchenai Crypts, there is a quest "I see dead Dranei" (which (and the boy who give this quest) is of course reference to movie The Sixth Sense)

Well, one of my favorite all time easter eggs was the He-man one in Shatt. Near the Battlemasters were members that resembled He-man, Skeletor, Orco, and Kringer. I just went there to take a screenshot of them.. and they're gone. That really sucks, but hopefully there are more that remember seeing that there. Does anyone know if they were moved? Anyway...
i really want to see a troll under a bridge, attacking anyone who passes by
