[ENDED] Madja's 10th raffle - Easter edition [Any Region]

Postby Madja » March 1st, 2016, 11:18 am

Hiya all!

It's time for my 10th raffle and seeing how Easter is just around the corner I figured I'd make that the theme.

So I thought we'd have a little Easter egg hunt :)

For those who don't know what an Easter egg is, it's a term used to describe hidden jokes or references in a media - often ones that break the fourth wall (non-lore).

An obvious one that probably all of us here know (because of the pet reward) is the tribute to 'Plants vs. Zombies' game. It's the mini-game quest found in Hillsbrad Foothills that awards the Singing Sunflower.
Easter Eggs might also be tributes to Blizzard Employees, famous people or well-known creative works.
Our very own Admin Azaelia even submitted a screenshot of one in my latest raffle - a small area in Mulgore where critters wield weapons and chase each others!

If you're in doubt about what an Easter egg is then please just let me know, I'll try to explain it better! And remember that you won't be judged harshly even if what you submit technically isn't one - the raffle is about having fun after all!

Anyways...
The prize this time will be a BlizzCon 2015 Virtual Ticket code which awards the 'Murkidan' pet as well as stuff in the other Blizzard games.


How to enter:

Submit a screenshot of or describe your favorite Easter Egg in World of Warcraft.
Add a small (or lengthy) explanation on why you chose that particular one.

(Please look to my signature if you're unsure of how to submit a screenshot)


Rules:

Upon submission you will be awarded a number. A /roll will be performed in-game between 1 and the number of entries. The winner is the one with the number rolled.

To be qualified for entry your account must have been created prior to 2016 or have at least 10 posts.

Only one entry per person.

All entries must be submitted by Thursday, 31th of March, at 9 PM CET (GMT +2 because of Daylight Savings)

Nice theme! Let's see...

One of my favorite easter eggs in WoD is the monologue of Reshad in the starting quest chain of Spires of Arak.

Reshad: My my... what a curious collection.
Reshad: Percy... what have you got there? Come now, let's see it.
Reshad: "Fifty Layers of Shadow," fifty l... Percival! You put that back this instant!
Reshad: Nasty bird.


It's even better in german in my opinion.

Oh, how on the both worlds can I stay with an only one thing?! There are so much!


…okay, so ladies and gentlemen, sit on your lounge cushions and have some Kaja'Cola!

It's an item found in Kezan, the goblin starting zone; its reagent is claimed to contribute to the goblins' independence.
While it's an obvious reference to fizzy drinks, it also makes a user express a silly thing, similarly to the Glyph of Confession (since Legion, that one is probably a toy). Of course, in this case, it's a consumable, themed a bit in line with the goblin kind of creativity (and/or decadence).
Sadly, you can't get it anymore past a certain quest (and surely after leaving the isle, of course). Moreover, the original item is unique (20), but at least it can be mailed or put on AH.

A comment of Wowhead listing possible lines.
My favourite one is a BlizzCon reference. Who would have guessed that blues ARE such like greedy goblins, who at all? :P

Well. Kaja'Cola aswell as Glyph of Confession are an example of RNG that doesn't frustrate anyone! ;)
They can have some RP usage as a conversation plot twist or as a fortune cookie, but we can also wonder what else would've been said by the affected people, hence go a bit deeper into the world by ourselves.

And an important lore question: has Rhonin had some Kaja'Cola after Algalon had been defeated? :lol:

I chose this easter egg because it is the one that speaks the most to me. Robin Williams was a part of many people's lives. He helped shape imaginations of not only children but adults as well. He had a way of bringing laughter and joy to everything he did. He brought his characters to life.

I only posted for fun. No need to assign me a number. I did not even know, that posting for a friend is an option now. I remember it wasn't in earlier raffles. :D

I wasn't even a huge fan of Lost but I never really looked for Easter Eggs in games before and this was the very first one I ever located on my own. It was a very fun moment for me, and helped me to want to look into finding even more!

I've seen a lot of easter eggs in my bit over a year of playing, from movies to music to other games, and even books (Game of Thrones anyone?)... but...

I know it seems cheesy. But Harrison Jones, especially his quests in Uldum! Now I'm old enough the Indian Jones movies were HUGE, intense, full of adventure and puzzles, and the special effects were awesome (then). And funny and full of sexual innuendo too. I know I can't be the only one. I'm not really a movie or tv buff, rarely watch something more than once if I do watch it. And I can't tell you how many times I've seen the movies.

Seen them in the theaters, seen them on VHS and video disc. And I can say I actually own the original three on video disc and still can play them in the video disc player... plus they've all been watched within the last 2-3 years (in succession of course).

Good luck to everyone! And of course thanks Madja for doing the raffle!!!

Hehe, well I did ban it in my Deathy raffle, as I felt that was a very special pet. I'd prefer that everyone who want to enter make their own account, but my raffles are about making people happy, so if it's a friend then that's okay. Others might enter without telling me what they intend to do with the prize, so I don't want to punish people for being honest :)

The only thing I don't want is people selling them. They're meant to help people finish their collections - not make a profit :)

Even though they are long gone, my favorite will always be 'Camp Nintendo' and the Linken quests in Un'Goro.

Next to that, there are a ton of Castlevania references as well, most of which were only around during the WoTLK launch event (Vampire Hunter, Vampiric Batling, and Monster Slayer's Kit. I wish I had saved Blessed Garb of the Undead Slayer, which was a mix between Judgement and the BC agi mail dungeon set.

I love these little cuties out in Grizzly Hills. Occasionally a hunter spawns and shoots Bambina's mom which sends the wee deer on a murderous revenge spree.

Can I also say that Grizzly Hills has the best music in game. I was so glad when they put the jukebox in the garrison which gave me the option to go out and get it so it's Grizzly Hills in my garrison 24x7.

Haris Pilton gets my vote for being the first Easter Egg/celebrity I found when I started Wow. I remember not having enough gold to buy her bag. My close friend used to be obsessed with Paris Hilton when she was super popular.

I was so happy to find Glark Criswold walking around my Garrison during the Wintervail event. For those who have never seen the movie, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is hysterical. All about a guy, Clark Griswold, who is trying to give his family the perfect Christmas, and seems to fail in unexpected and comical ways.

I am entering for my husband, I want to surprise him if I win :)

Glyph of Far Sight: Your Far Sight spell may be used indoors. :)
Though remember that minor glyphs are pretty deprecated in Legion for the sake of toy industry. :geek:

I've been expecting Linken here. :) Would have mentioned him but I don't even know pre-Cata times.
