Favourite reference in WoW

Lovely ladies Z and Cinder are doing a blog challenge and anyone can join! Topic of week 34 is “What is your favourite pop culture reference or easter egg in the game?” You can find other people’s posts on their website.

There are many awesome references and easter eggs in WoW but my favourite is SI:7 (SI stands for Stormwind Intelligence). The name is a reference to The British Secret Intelligence Service, also called MI:6 (Military Intelligence, Section 6). And they’re so fun!

I love when they send me on a mission and I get to do spy shenanigans like sneaking around, gathering intelligence and using code names (e.g. “the White Pawn” for Anduin). Preferably with Master Mathias Shaw. That man makes me feel things. *clears throat* Anyway..

Meeting them is like meeting Harrison Jones (hey, also a great reference!), I immediately know I’m going to enjoy whatever comes next. And even though I don’t love the faction conflict, I always get immersed into the story when SI:7 are involved. If Blizz came to me and offered me any position in their company I’d want, I’d choose to be one of the people who write SI:7 stories and quests. That must be so much fun!

If you want to read more about SI:7 and their activities, Wowpedia has a good article about them and this amazing art of Varian and SI:7 infiltrating Ironforge from “The Shattering” novel.
