After reading about Development Hell and the unburied Jay Wilson, I happened to stumble upon the Quality Well (on Nightmare) whilst clearing out Old Tristram. Upon my decent into the dark murkiness of the well, I found it populated by all manner of foul, lurking beasts: Blizzard QA zombies.

Is there any other purpose behind the Quality Well, other than to show off the undead QA team?

Nope - just a secret joke dungeon. Rumor has it that if you're particularly unfortunate, you might stumble across Development Hell, as well.. (I know you mentioned it, but seriously. Development Hell. It deserves a second mention.)

Oh, and you might also find Bashiok lurking around the Oasis in Act 2. If you've got Rakanishu's Blade, he's even worth an achievement.

Zarhym's in the game too. I found him somewhere in Act I on my first playthrough. – dpatchery May 21 '12 at 12:11
Zarhym seems to be one of the random names for Rares, I've seen him around the place a few times in my first playthrough on Normal. – Matthew Scharley May 22 '12 at 4:06
