Last month when we wrote about losing one of the greatest actors of our time we were happy to also announce that there were rumors saying that World of Warcraft was going to memorialize him with some fun Easter eggs in the upcoming Warlords of Draenor expansion. Today on the web some of those Easter eggs have been leaked early and I have to say I love everything about them.
First one we saw a few days ago was a the Genie named Robin found in an Ever-Burning Lamp on an island near Talador. Supposedly when you rub a lamp he appears and screaming “INFINITE COSMIC POWER” waves goodbye to you and returns to his lamp saying “itty bitty living space”, a reference to Williams’ character in Aladdin.
Next up is a another character that WoWhead has found named Robin that is hanging out near a large broken egg very similar to the one Mork traveled to Earth in his TV show Mork and Mindy. He even looks like Williams character as well.
This last one I am not to sure about but still love is toys have been found that resemble the toys from Williams movie Toys (one of my personal favorites) and also yet another character named Robin that sure does look like Mrs. Doubtfire from the movie after the name.
So what do you think? Does this do justice to the man? I like it. The Genie has to be my favorite. Let us know what you think in the comments or if there is something you would like to see.
If you didn’t already know Robin Williams was known for being a gamer. There was posts of him playing Portal, Battlefield and one of his favorites was World of Warcraft. Since his death a petition on Change.org has come together to show how much he will be missed by adding him as an NPC in the World of Warcraft. This petition has not fell on deaf ears and has been heard by the Blizzard staff on an answer to a tweet as seen below from Technical Game Designer, Chadd Nervigg responded “Yes. We’re taking care of it.” Robin Williams will appear as an NPC of some kind in the game.

Can you imagine running into the Inn to rest and there is an NPC telling Robin Williams jokes? It would be pretty amazing. I say let’s make him have an amazing quest line as well. This was the petition lead in below.
“He often joked about his WoW addiction but also about the reactions he’d get from other gamers when he admits he plays the game,” the post continues. “Because of his presence within our community, we the players of World of Warcraft are asking Blizzard to kindly create an NPC within the game that memorializes the actor/comedian.”
