What about the Treasure Hunters in Scarlet Monastery that drops their gold on the ground when they die? Surely they're a referrence to Diablo! :)EDIT: The Treasure Hunters from the upcoming Scarlet Monastery Revamp

I found a "Quality Well", too.
I just found a champion Quill Fiend called Sarkoth in the Old Tristram Ruins. =)
We should also not neglect to mention Balg des Kuhkönigs. Secret cow level!
I like thinking that Azeroth and Sanctuary are alternate universes and that some of these references (like the Maiden's Anguish for example) are pseudo-parallels to each other. I don't know, it makes it more interesting for me than to just think, "oh it's just named after each other by the devs" :P
Yes. Love it.
I thought this was mentioned earlier, but here's another Easter Egg that might be worth filing under "Community."Edit: Lol I found Zarhym again. This time he has invulnerable minions...=(
I don't know if this counts as a reference, but the Demon Hunter can summon a boar pet, which is a directly taken model from WoW of a black boar, found in many zones.
I can't link to him in the DB as it's a randomly-generated NPC, but I did include a mention under community as well as linked his forum thread :) Killed him a few times towards the end of Act II yesterday. Also added a few things like the Triune Amulet since yesterday. I think it's pretty cool how a lot of the random-stat BoEs greens from vanilla come from D2 armor types.I've tried to hold off on ability references because there are a ton of things that are more 'related mechanics' than 'clever non-obvious egg' --from red/blue globes for health/mana to things like Smoke Screen/Cloak of Shadows and Wizard/Mage Armors. Pets are more unique though, I'll see if I can grab a pic from my DH.
Just providing proof from achamber's comment above, but the Lich King's Helm of Dominion does appear to be in Diablo III.Visual proof can be found here. Saw this over on reddit.
Nobody mentionet Tyrael Flammenkuss?
There's a random mob you can encounter in act 1 Defiled Crypts, which is a nice reference to sites like WoWhead, called "DataMiner" flavour text "unearths spoils".. He's just sitting around mining stuff randomly. Made me LOL when i came across him last week. :)
Weapons in Diablo with the +attack speed effect seem to have the same particle effect as weapons in WoW enchanted with Mongoose.
"Your curiosity will be the death of you."First said by Zhar the Mad in DiabloThen Kel'thuzad in Warcraft III and the Naxxramas teaser trailerAnd now Lloigor the Crazed in Diablo IIINot really sure what category it would fall under...
