Linken was a level 40 quest giver located at Marshal's Refuge in the contested territory of Un'Goro Crater. He is small and wears a green tunic, wielding a sword, shield and boomerang, all very reminiscent of Link from the Legend of Zelda series. The quest sequence that Linken gave was a reference to The Legend of Zelda.
Helps during quests:
He started the following quests:
- After you complete the first "It's a Secret to Everybody quest, when you speak to Linken he says "I met a man that said 'Master using it and you can have this'". This is a reference to the Old Man at the beginning of The Legend of Zelda.
- If he is generated from the Firelands daily questline, he mounts a brown horse which is a reference to Link's horse Epona.
- Upon entering combat, he says quotes that reference to "Link: the Faces of Evil" and the Zelda Cartoon.
- Patch 4.2.0 (2011-06-28): Linken is one of several randomly spawned NPCs that assists people on the quest  in Mount Hyjal.
- Patch 4.0.3 (15-Nov-2010): Quest-related version removed.
- (28-Jun-2006): Added at level 40 in Un'Goro Crater[44.7, 8.6].
- Linken says: Linken
- In Combat
- Linken says: Excuuuse me princess.
- Linken says: I'm not used to fighting with other people.
- Linken says: Oh boy, I'm so hungry, I could eat a fire elemental!
- This is a reference to the Phillips CDI Game "Faces of Evil", while the former is taken from the Zelda Cartoon.
