The First Anvil
« on: October 23, 2016, 09:52:03 am »

Sorry if this is old news and has been discussed before, but someone mentioned "first anvil" in another discussion and it got me to thinking about this.  In the World of Warcraft WoD Frostfire zone there is a "The First Anvil" and maybe a quest that goes with it.  I've always wondered if this was a nod to DF.  Anyone know?

Since Dwarf fortress have little to non lore, and a settings that is very standard fantasy copy/paste. Then I hardly doubt it.

Blizzard's game designers are well known for their DF easter eggs so it is possible. See the Burning Axe of Sankis for an example from Diablo 3. In WoW just look to the the quest called "Dwarf Fortress." That quest is just chock full of DF references. In Starcraft 2 there is strikingly dwarfy looking terran named Swan who works in a shop named Bay 12. The list goes on. I wouldn't be surprised if somebody over there was dropping a subtle reference with the first anvil bit.
