Robin Williams WOW Tribute Discovered

A couple of weeks ago, we ran a piece about the tribute Blizzard had planned to honor the late comedian Robin Williams. Well, it now looks like the rumors surrounding the said in-game tribute were true, as the genie NPC created in reference to one of the late actor’s iconic roles, has been officially uncovered.
The tribute was discovered in the World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor expansion beta, by a player named “Haldhur”.

Apparently, Haldhur came upon a special-looking item within one of the new areas introduced by the expansion. The location of the item known as the “Ever-burning Lamp” is on an island near Talador, and once players interact with it, a genie is summoned.
The genie then says “infinite cosmic power/itty-bitty living space” in clear reference to one of Robin Williams’ lines from Aladdin. The lamp isn’t the only tribute-item apparently. Next to it, there’s a broken egg-shell, which could be a reference to Mork and Mindy, as well as a bunch of other, smaller bits of paraphernalia possibly referring to some of the other roles the actor had had over his career.
Apparently, there are two more character models included in the expansion which could also end up as Robin Williams-inspired NPCs, but the presence of these characters – unlike that of the genie – has not been confirmed yet. That of course does not mean they aren’t in fact in the game already.
There’s also been another discovery made within the game data, that of the title “Comedian” which will probably be used in association with these new characters. Once the WOW: Warlords of Draenor expansion pack is released on November 13, we’re quite certain all the characters and tribute-elements shall be discovered on short notice by the community.
