Robin William’s World of Warcraft tribute models seemingly revealed

Robin Williams Legend Of Zelda Nintendo Ad 1

Warlords of Draenor will reportedly carry WoW’s homage to the tragically deceased Hollywood actor.

World of Warcraft fansite Wowhead has appeared to have uncovered Blizzard’s tribute to the late Robin Williams while datamining the upcoming expansion, Warlord of Draenor.

Three character models have been found which share the name Robin The Entertainer. The first, a blue djinn, bears resemblance to William’s role as the genie in Disney’s Aladdin.

The other two models also appear to be references to famous characters played by Williams. A female model, said to carry male voice samples, representing his iconic cross-dressing role as Mrs Doubtfire and a male model, wearing braces, a potential Mork tribute from William’s madcap portrayal of an alien in Mork and Mindy.

Wowhead have extended the theory that the djinn model will transform into the other two characters as Robin The Entertainer tells different jokes.

Indeed it was the request of a recent petition to include a Robin Williams tribute in World of Warcraft to have some of his best jokes in the game.

Following a tweet form WoW game designer Chadd Nervig acknowleging the petition had been taken on board, Blizzard followed-up on Twitter to say:


Williams, an avid World of Warcraft player, could most likely be found dishing out his humours quips in the World's End tavern in WoW, as was also the request of the petition.
