Mistborn meets World of Warcraft in latest patch

A subtle nod to Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn series will appear in World of Warcraft’s 5.2.0 patch.

Revealed by the author on his blog last night, Mistborn fans will see a ‘Survivor’s Bag of Coins’ in the latest World of Warcraft patch.

The item is a consumable and binds when picked up. If a player throws a coin to the ground, they are propelled in the opposite direction. A nice wink to Vin and other coinshots there. While not especially useful to anyone, I’m pretty sure fans will get a kick out of it.

Brandon Sanderson is currently collaborating on his own game based on the Mistborn Series entitled Mistborn Birthright, which is scheduled to appear in 2014. He also recently released the final Wheel of Time book, A Memory of Light, inheriting the series from Robert Jordan after his untimely death.

Busy is not the word.
