    Yaulthoon, the Illithid mastermind of the U9 quest line, has an interesting name. Did we actually kill him, or just leave him in a mindbroken state?

    One of the house D questions (name forgotten, the optional one where you climb through the piping) has pair of gargoyles arguing that one always lies and one always tells the truth. This was showcased in "Labyrinth" but the logic exercise is older. And no, I can never figure it out.

    Don't forget the memorials to Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson and the fact they they narrate adventures in Delaera and Threnal.

    Well, when Commodore Bloodeye in Three-Barrel Cove says "Savvy?" I believe that this is a reference to Captain Jack Sparrow.

    Also, when I think about it, the short sword Sting from the Menachtarun desert may not simply be named after the stinger of a scorpion... there happens to be quite a famous short sword by the same name.

    true, but IMO if they wanted to go for THAT sting, they'd have given it Orc bane

    Smile Urquell

    The Desecrated Temple of Vol sports a Quell guardian who is labeled an "Ur-Quell". Now "Ur-" in German means very old or ancient, so the compound is not that spectacular, but when I first saw it I was reminded of this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pilsner_Urquell

    Intercession, one way or the other...

    Can't you also say something like "Wait here...I'll be back"?

    In the Extraplanar Palace (I think it is there, but could be the lava caves) the kobolds say, "Kobold wasn't even supposed to be here today!" Which is a reference to Dante Hick's oft-repeated line from Clerks, one of my favorite movies.

    Thought of another one today: one of the dance options for the Warforged is . . . the robot dance.

    While not a pun nor necessarily an Easter Egg, but the dance and taunt for female helfs cracks me up.

    Sorry, but I haven't through all of these pages because I did not want to be spoilt for quests I haven't done/played yet ...

    But today I stumpled upon a name in another post :

    Suulomades
    Looks to me like "Soulmate". (Very obvious ! )

    There is another Easter egg which is a bit difficult to describe ... Under the Market Tent, thre are a few NPCs wandering around, talking to the merchants there.

    While playing the game in German language (language of the game client) everything is in common (non-dialect) German, one of these NPCs says a sentence in a dialect, once in a while, and it very much looks like the dialect of Berlin.

    I'd post a screenshot here if I could attach one, but it seems that it isn't possible here.

    First used in the Crystal Cove event.

    Default Hm..

    They may have taken the name for the quest "Dirty Laundry" from Don Henley's song of the same name.

    Also, obvious Shakespeare reference in Marketplace

    That version is kind of generic. Though an “I’ll be back” reference is more apparent in Made to Order.
    Things that if Turbine went all EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on, would actually make the game fun again.:
    • Giving us the racial PrE’s we were promised, before rolling out DDOStore™ Enhancement Trees.
    • Fixing physical defense for Rangers and Rogues. It’s ridiculous that you’re better off wearing Heavy Armor and ignoring your innate feats on these classes.
    • Cannith Crafting.
    • Update the named loot to put them on the same system.
    • Fixing the Cannith Challenges so that they can be 6 starred without incredible luck or store bought items.
    • Fixing all challenges to give us decent XP and ingredient returns for the unreasonable time we have to spend in most of them.

    Speaking of dancing and Halfelves, helf dance1 is a riverdance. And Helfdance2... look familiar to anyone?
