Robin Williams’ Island

RobinIsland1

Blizzard created an island and an NPC to honor Robin Williams who passed away in August 2014. The NPC, Robin, can be found on an island off the coast of Nagrand and Talador in Draenor.

He can be summoned by clicking the Ever-Burning Lamp and he will yell “PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWERS! Itty bitty living space” which is a reference to Robin Williams’ role as Genie in Disney’s Aladdin. Other references can be found around the island.

RobinIsland2

Like the large egg with a chair and some machinery inside which is a reference to his role as Mork the alien who comes to Earth in an egg-like spaceship in the TV series Mork & Mindy.

RobinIsland4

Some toys can be found behind a tree, which I read is a reference to the movie Toys.

RobinIsland8

A murloc riding an elekk can be found higher up on the island.

Together with a cage and bones. I don’t know what these items are references to, maybe Jumanji and Night at the Museum?

Have you visited Robin on his island?

Hidden in Mount Volwrath

It was merely a coincidence that I discovered this small easter egg hidden high up in Mount Volwrath in Talador.

I was exploring the area around Tanaan Jungle when I thought I’d use Aviana’s Feather to climb some mountains on the border of Talador and Tanaan Jungle so I could get a nice overlook of the zones. It took a while to get up to the top as the cooldown on Aviana’s Feather is 10 minutes. I was on my way down again when I saw something on a ledge below and I jumped down to it.

There I found a painting easel with a framed canvas which looks unfinished, a paint brush and a box of water on a small table, a bag with the Horde symbol on it and an American football.

I have no idea what it means but I read here that there is a leveling designer named Colin Volrath and this mountain is called Mount Volwrath. The Horde general in Ashran, High Warlord Volrath, is named after Colin so maybe this mountain is too, but I don’t know.

I went around on the other side of Mount Volwrath and found this orb object floating in the sky. I have no idea what it is and why it’s there, might just be misplaced and forgotten.

Have you found any easter eggs or other less known places or items in Draenor?
