    Should wall bug be bannable?

    You all know it, not going into details, go to Guo-lai halls and see for yourself. Theres people doing it every minute. I know it's been around for a long time and theres very little blizzard has done to fix it.

    My question is though, should it be bannable?

    My personal answer, yes it should, your gaining access to areas which you shouldn't normally have, and especially with guo-lai halls with chests behind them awarding gold and rep.

    While I see you're point, the only reason as to why we do it, is cause Blizzard didnt think it trough.

    Oh, also that if we didnt we would be looking for very long time for chestes, and most people maybe just have 1 key, and wanna get achivement fast, cause the measly 300 rep + random things that dosen't matter much, aint worth spending long time on.
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?

    No bug should be bannable - especially those that are neutral in terms of abuse/advantage.

    The name wall bug maybe misleading, it's a clear exploit, just for some reason, everyone knows it as "wall bug"

    IMO... no it shouldn't be bannable... why? because people that do that don't get anything..., they only get to see new places and cool things... but in the case that you give... yes it should be bannable... because they get things by exploting an error

    Tough one to answer but I personally don't think it should be bannable, I've had to do the same thing in TB because I died in one of the catacombs and a battle started shortly after so everything was locked down. As far as the bonus gold/rep from the chests you can only gain access to them with a key that is currently available from the Mogu and in stead of having them clutter your bags like all the vanity items we currently have to deal with they glitch through the doors, use the key, and run back out. Really no harm done.

    of course it's an exploit, no they won't ban everyone

    Remember back when there was a door leading to scholo and you had to pass through it to get in? OMG EXPLOIT BECAUSE PEOPLE CAN RUN BACK TO THEIR CORPSES!!!111!!!!111ONEONEONE!!!

    But no really, its not an exploit. Going through doors while dead isn't cheating, and if it is, blizzard needs to increase the respawn time on chests.

    Honestly it shouldn't be a ban for doing that. It isn't a very major thing. You find a rare chest by luck even if you did do the quest and so forth or not, in the end. Finding a. Chest bug or no bug is pure luck.

    What are you talking about? You should be banned and from forums to for theorycrafting exploits

    If you get a Ancient Guo-Lai Cache Key, go to Guo-Lai Halls, pull some mobs to the door that is on the left or right in front of you when you come down the stairs and die. You will be able to run through the door in ghost form into the next rooms where sometimes the Cache spawns. These doors only open at honored / revered so the "exploit" is that you're able to access them without the needed rep.

    well tbh, it has been known for a long, long time, I'm wondering why it hasn't been fixed. One day it will be put to a serious use, maybe in a raid or so, then they'll be uproar, don't see why it's not just fixed.

    Fixed how though? There are certain areas in the game where the player can become locked in. If s/he dies there, it'd be necessary to run through whatever's blocking it to retrieve the body.
