In Thundermar when you enter a certain basement you get the warning message "You have a bad feeling about this basement...". Inside there is a spider, which is definitely not a threat to anyone who happens to be there.

What's the point? Am I missing something? Is that some sort of tribute to something I don't know?

The tribute is clearly to Star Wars. I don't play WoW so I don't know about the rest. – dierre Feb 20 '11 at 14:05
@dierre: post it as an answer ;) – o0'. Feb 20 '11 at 17:34
Since I don't play WoW I could not be sure about your question besides the SW reference. – dierre Feb 20 '11 at 17:37

This is one of 4 random (but very commonly) spawning encounters that make up the Wildhammer Tour of Duty achievement.

Yes it is, but what does this have to do with my question? :/ – o0'. Feb 20 '11 at 17:30
You asked what the point is. The point is to be part of the achievement. The encounter serves no other purpose, aside from providing a fun Star Wars Easter Egg. – LessPop_MoreFizz Feb 20 '11 at 17:32
Should we assume this is The Black Recluse spawn point? – user2974 Feb 20 '11 at 19:11
@powerlord yes. – LessPop_MoreFizz Feb 20 '11 at 20:24
