When Robin Williams passed away, World of Warcraft fans petitioned Blizzard to add a character in tribute to the late comedian and we found out later that hints showed up in Blizzard’s source code but we still wondered what Blizzard had planned.
Now we know. Sharp eyed Wowhead user Haldur spotted a genie named Robin off the Talador coast in the new Warlord Of Draenor expansion beta.
According to Wowhead, “You can summon Robin by rubbing the Ever-Burning Lamp. When first summoned, he exclaims ‘INFINITE COSMIC POWER’ and then shrinks and waves goodbye, saying ‘itty bitty living space.'”
There also seem to be some references to other well known Williams characters, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled if you play the new expansion.
Speaking of eyes, I have something in mine. I think I’ll take a trip to Talador when I play tonight and see if I can spot Robin, just to say hi.
