WoW Dragonflight references Yu-Gi-Oh’s iconic characters

WoWHead spotted the new ques in the Thasldraszus zone, where players come across a side-quest in the Algeth’ar Academy that has heavy references to Yu-Gi-Oh. Students Steogosa (similar to Seto Kaiba) and Yumadormu (referencing Yuma Tsukumo) can be seen arguing over a deck of Hearthstone cards.

If the player tries to interfere with the students, Setagosa tosses the deck of cards into a river. Thankfully Yumadorma users their dragon powers to dry off the cards. He then asks the player for help in creating a Dracthyr Hearthstone club. 

Setagosa gets upset that Yuma gets approval for the club and challenges him to a Hearthstone match where Setagosa summons a ghost version of Kalecgos, who looks quite similar to Blue Eyes White Dragon from Yu-Gi-Oh.  After Setagosa attempts to cheat the player interferes and Yumadorma wins the match.

Social media users raved over the new quest and one said, “I will pay you money to let me play Hearthstone against other people in-game.”

Another loved the Yu-Gi-Oh references and cheered, “Lol, that is great!”

With Dragonflight’s release date fast approaching, players won’t have to wait much longer to get their hands on the new Yu-Gi-Oh-inspired quest.
