Diablo Easter Eggs in World of Warcraft[edit | edit source]

Diablo mini-pet.

There aren't (yet) any specifically-Diablo 3 Easter Eggs in World of Warcraft. There are, however, a number of Easter Eggs derived from the Diablo series on the whole.

The following is quoted from [1] This list does not include the dozens of skills, monsters, quests, and other game elements directly derived from Diablo and Diablo 2.

  • In reference to his demonic form in Frozen Throne, one of Illidan's gag quotes is "Wings, horns, hooves...what am I saying, is this Diablo?"
  • An item called the King Cow King's Hide.
  • An item called Wirt's Third Leg.

Diablo Mini-Pet[edit | edit source]

The first World of Warcraft expansion, the Burning Crusade, added a Diablo mini-pet as a reward for people who purchased the expansion. (Which means that absolutely everyone playing the game today has one.)

This pet follows, is very cute in a fierce sort of way, and has a fire-breathing "rest" animation.

Tyrael Mini-Pet[edit | edit source]

Mini-Tyrael pet, from WoW:BC.

A Tyrael mini-pet was added with a special conversion code given out to attendees to Blizzard's WWI 2008, in Paris. This code enabled the Tyrael mini-pet, who hovers along after the player, and can /dance, when required.

This was one of the rarest and most sought-after of all mini-pets at the time, with codes selling for upwards of $800 on eBay.
