It is sad when a young person goes out of life and on July 2nd, 2020 another passed. Streamer and World of Warcraft professional player Byron “Reckful” Bernstein committed suicide. To honor him, Blizzard immortalized him in the game.
The WoW community mourned the death of the legendary player “Reckful”. Thousands have gathered on the servers over the past few weeks to think of him together. So that he will never be forgotten Blizzard immortalized him as an NPC in the gamethat he loved and that he spent so much time in.
The Reckful NPC is a rogue trainer in the Cathedral of Light, found in the upcoming Shadowlands expansion. Beta players can already interact with him and have a little dialogue based on his days in World of Warcraft.
WoW: This is already the 2nd NPC for players “Reckful”
If the name Byron Burnside sounds familiar – you’re right. There is an NPC in the game who bears this name and also honors “Reckful”. Since 2018 he can be found in Bronhavn in Tiragarde Sound.
It is rare that a player manages to be immortalized in the game as an NPC. The fact that “Reckful” can be found twice in the game is true proof of the influence it had on the WoW community.
