5 Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Easter Eggs You Shouldn't Miss

1 of 6

Blizzard has quite the reputation for cleverly placed Easter eggs throughout many of its games. These Easter eggs, an inside joke or hidden message placed subtlety throughout games, are normally aimed towards significant popular culture icons and can make even the most rigid gamer crack a smile. 

While Diablo 3 has a multitude of Easter eggs, which isn't too surprising considering how much Blizzard seems to love them, the Reaper of Souls expansion created a whole new world of opportunities. Here's a list of 5 that have been going viral since the expansion's release.

    The iron wolves have zero relation to game of thrones or a song of ice and fire, they were also in Diablo 2's 3rd act, fulfilling a very similar role of mercenaries, bodyguards and town guards. In Diablo 2 there was a high emphasis on the fact they were both soldiers and sorcerers and they were able to cast various sorceress spells as followers (including ice but could also be fire or lightning). Presumably they brought them in Diablo 3 cause they are some of the few mortals badass enough to actually be able to do anything against Diablo's forces. And they were cool as hell in Diablo 2

    Some people just want GoT connections to everything even when they aren't there (no offense to poster, im not saying you propagated these rumours)

    There is however at least two game of thrones references I've run into so far (and I haven't been playing reapers very long)

    One is a unqiue act 5 punisher sub boss named Clawgane, who's subtitled "The Mountain", obviously a reference to Ser Gregor "the mountain" Clegane

    2nd I saw was a unqiue treasure goblin located inside the secret treasure vault area, named tyrion or Tywin something which is obviously a reference to the lannisters who "crap" gold

    It's not a helm. It's an amulet. The picture even says it's an amulet. A helm would be too awesome for the game.

    it is the shield from the show game of thrones it might be a lore in the game but still the image of the shield is from game of thrones like the hammer jammers and the fllavor of time items.

    The shield one isn't an easter egg, it's a part of the Lore. The lore books actually bring mention to the wolf being the sigil taken by the first king of Westmarch.

    Yeaaaa, that's why I said it was up for debate lol... there's a couple threads about it, and some people even think the lore was based on the GoT books. Some interesting stuff :p
