As I'm sure we know, Blizzard likes to put jokes everywhere. Nothing is safe. Not even fishing. Especially not fishing.
It started with The 1 Ring.
"Not quite as good as the 2 Ring"
Some would have been content with this. But not Blizzard.
In Burning Crusade they added The 2 Ring.
"Vastly superior to the 1 ring."
Again, some might have left it there. A Lord of the Rings joke and a joke about their joke. But this is Blizzard we're talking about. I pretend they have an entire team of devs dedicated only to finding places to add jokes.
So in Wrath of the Lich King, there came to be The 5 Ring.
"This ring appears to have eaten the 3 and 4 rings."
Huh? Surely they'd save that joke for the 7 ring and how the other rings fear it because, pardon me, "7 8 9". Why not just have The 3 Ring?
1, 2, 5
I wonder what we'll have in Cataclysm.
