I am not sure if he is an easter egg, but I believe so, I believe he has a story at least. Courageous Yon. He is a Battle pet tamer in Pandaria. He lives in a tiny cave, way up in the mountains and he has been preparing for this battle all his life.

For very personal reasons I identify with Courageous Yon. I cried when I first came upon his little cave. He gives me feels, still every time I think of him. When I am feeling especially courageous I will stop and battle him. I like to think he is a real person or at least, a fictional character with a story. Not sure if this qualifies. But he is my own personal eater egg.

Wally and Tic Tak (The Carpenter) are my favourites http://imgur.com/MtHDycr

Alice in Wonderland is one of my favourite films. The 1951 version, not Tim Burton's 'reimagined' effort.

I have no idea when or where I first saw it but there are pictures of me at 5 years old self dressed as Alice for a costume party. Mum even used yellow hairspray on me. Even at that age I was cat obsessed and what is not to love about a pink and purple talking kitty who can disappear himself? Talking animals, singing flowers... there was a lot to capture my young mind. As I got older I started to understand things on a different level (bread and butterflies haha I see what you did there) and kinda got to experience the movie for the first time all over again.

These guys are found off the north coast of Kun-Lai Summit (43,17). There is a suspicious lack of oysters in the area....
I often pop by for a visit if I'm in the area. I'll sometimes use my Gokk'lok's Shell and wait to see if they come and try to eat me. They haven't. Yet.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00WCEbKM_SE for those that don't know the Walrus and the Carpenter.

And whenever I pick up some Aquamarine ingame I get the 'Painting the Roses Red' stuck in my head.

Upstairs in the Stormwind barber shop you see two Gnome skeletons and a barber's shaving blade, a reference to Sweeney Todd.

The Gnome downstairs had a previous name closer to Johnny Depp's character from the movie but it had to be changed.

Just adding this post for a user who's having some problems with actually posting.
Klausv wrote:My entry: Nethaera's Light. Apparently it is an NPC
that has been added in memory of a wow forum community
moderator, according to a Wowhead comment. It has the added bonus of
giving you a pet. :) The NPC spawns in various locations in Dalaran.
I chose it because it awards a pet that is easy to get for everyone.
My screenshot shows both the NPC as well as my Nethaera's Light pet. I
couldn't get the nameplate for the NPC to show, for some reason.

I can enter the raffle if it is possible to collect the prize on an EU
trial account. My standard account is not active. It could take months
before I activate my standard account.
Thank you so much for the screenshot guide, I couldn't have managed this
without it.
Good luck everyone. :)

There is a character in the game named Jose Morgan. He can be found in Tanaris . While completing the quest Stoley's Shipment, you have to recover some stolen rum that was stolen by a pirate named Captain Cuervo which is likely a reference to the popular brands of alcohol, Jose Cuervo and Captain Morgan. Stoley's name is also similar in sounding to Stoli, a nickname for Stolichnaya Vodka. :D

(No need to add me to the raffle; I have the pet!) Here is my favorite Easter Egg, a tribute to Lonely George: Lon'li Guju. You can interact with him! If you /love, he'll follow you around. Cute and sad! The original Lonely George was a tortise and the last of this kind. Once he died irl, his ghost appeared in Pandaria. [url]http://www.wowhead.com/npc=66658/lonli-guju[/url]

Thanks everybody! I think he likes me! He was a B/B for those interested. And luckily I had a massive stack of humanoid stones from the menagerie, so he's already lvl25! 8-) :D
