In The Outlands, there is a Netherdrake-mounted Orc named Ja'y Nosliw. If you turn Nosliw backwards, it spells "Wilson" making his name Jay Wilson, who was the executive producer for the movie Dogtown And The Z-Boys (2002) and the editor for the movie Champion's Forever (1989).

Paris Hilton reference

There is a Goblin in Shattrath City named "Harris Pilton".


Moonwalk

Press [Jump] then while in the air press E. While you are on your way down press Q + A.


Hint on wow

Wow players! This hint is for fast and smart pressers. When you're battling a melee type monster or player know the time they will attack. If you know press jump so the attack will miss. This can't work when you're battling ranged attackers.
