In Blizzard's latest WoW Classic with Creators video, they interview Alex Afrasiabi. Known in the World of Warcraft forums as Furor, Afrasiabi is nowadays the Creative Director for World of Warcraft.

in Loch Modan. Other notable additions provided by Afrasiabi include the infamous Duskwood NPC
In the interview, Afrasiabi comments about one of the highlights in his career as a Blizzard employee: When his sister was giving birth to his first niece, Afrasiabi went to the hospital wearing his World of Warcraft bowling shirt with his name on it, and one nurse recognizes the shirt as a WoW shirt, and she started raving about how much she loved the game.
