The ongoing joke of the rings

| Tuesday, April 27, 2010
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.

5 is right out.

Of course you can't forget the "D" Ring...

It's about as funny as parents naming their newborn child 'Frodo', which has happened, btw.

They should make:

The O-Ring - 'Seal the fates of your enemies'

Blizzard Employee: "We so funny!"
