Find a way to climb above Granite Falls. Dancing squirrels. Zone puzzle on the way up. Have fun.
Hey Devs, can this thread get a sticky please? That way 2 months down the line we don't have 10 of these threads.
I didn't have any extra to add, but during beta I repeatedly would say "Cackaw, Cackaw" while doing /chicken. It really tickled me that they added that.
Quest name: Gnome Gone Wild!
Guild Bank please!
This thread seems to have died! I'm sure there are more out there.
The level 50 drink - Ironpine Melange - may be a reference to spice melange from Dune.
Not sure this should be deemed easter egg or popular culture reference instead:
The Love in the Age of the Shade artifact set has the following book/film references:
Twilight of the Shade -> reference to the Twilight series? (Stephanie Meyer)
Underplane -> reference to the Underworld film?
Interview with a Lorn -> reference to An Interview with the Vampire (Anne Rice)
Vampire Journals -> reference to The Vampire Diaries (L. J. Smith)
Beryl the Vampire Slayer -> Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Living Dead in Droughtlands -> Living Dead in Dallas (Charlaine Harris)
In Scarlet Gorge, some of the miners say "The Sourcestone must flow!" - a nice nod to Dune.
more more more, keep em coming people
and I still haven't had my squirrel question answered
(this thread needs a sticky as there are more easter egg threads popping up, though none as comprehensive as this one...would cut down on clutter to combine them)
1. Mudders Milk - Been sold by ogre's since TBC.
2. Deep Ones - a complete race in WOW since WOTLK.
I mean seriously... At least try to forge some identity for yourself. Making pop culture references is WOW's thing and these aren't really easter eggs. More like references. A true easter egg is finding something hidden in a hard to find area left by the developer.
Machinist Calwyn and Machinist Hobart in the Library in Meridian is a reference to Calvin and Hobbes. They even have a transmogifier that never works quite right.
