Great article. I love your shirt as well :)
don't forget the world quest on mac'aree where you fight general z'hod
You missed Blademaster Telaamon, which is a reference to Lews Therin Telamon from the Wheel of Time series.
I mean, ALL of those things named Argus are referring back to Greek mythology in the end. There were several figures named Argus, but the most prominent was Argus, the king of Argos (where the Argonauts were from), who was a son of Zeus.
"Khazaduum, First of His Name" is apparent reference to Game of Thrones nomenclature :-)
I noticed one of the new Draenei lines is "I am one with the Light, the Light is with me".
I loved the They Lived reference & was really excited about it when I first saw it. I enjoyed the LotR reference as well. (I had a laugh when I saw Khazaduum & recognized it)
Typo in the Khazaduum reference, Khazad-dum is the name of the mines of Moria, not Khazas-dum.
The last one was also a dream sequence in King-Fu Panda
I always thought Argus was derived from the man in Greek mythology who built the Argo, the ship the Argonaughts sail on. Like the Draenei sail through space. Hence why they have sort of Greek/Eastern European accents and why they have other semi Greek references like Admiral Odesyus (an obvious reference to Odysseus/Ulysses from the Odyssey/Iliad) which would be another reference to a people long travelled. Interestingly (or probably not) Odysseus dog is called Argos.In that respect I've always kind of seen the Draenei being similar to the Greek/Byzantine refugees fleeing their homeland being invaded by the Ottomans. Argos being a name of a city in Greece, and one of the last bastions of the Byzantine empire before the Ottomans completely invaded. I'm not saying the Ottomans were like demons, but in the eyes of the Christian kingdoms of the time they probably seemed like them.
How about Vigilant Quoram, isn't he a reference to Q from Star Trek?
I wonder how long these Vevo links will last.
There's a group of mobs named "Filthy Assistant". This is a reference to the Warren Ellis comic book series "Transmetropolitan". In it, the lead character (Spider) referred to the people helping him as "filthy assistants".
Argus is still lame.
There was also a monster in greek myth named Argus. Zeus was having an affair with a princess named Io but had to turn her into a cow to keep Hera from discovering the affair. Hera took the cow and made Argus, a giant with 100 eyes guard her in a cave and even when he slept he only closed two eyes so none could get past him. Io's father wanted his daughter back and beseeched Hermes to save her, so Hermes told Argus a long and boring story till Argus into so deep a sleep he closed all his eyes and Hermes used the chance to kill him. Still Io stayed a cow until Zeus promised to break off the affair.
