I really wish flying while dead was in. If you die anywhere near the cloud serpent folks, you are sent to a graveyard on top of a mountain coming out of the ocean, so unless your body is in the water below or on the bottom level of the island with eggs, you're screwed.
Major nanners is in an extremely popular location. On pvp servers dying to him is not rare in the slightest. There's no reason for there not to be a way to retrieve your corpse at such a location. The only places you couldn't retrieve your body in vanilla were areas that you exploited to use. Flying mounts are a normal means of travel and as such, death accommodations should be made by Blizzard.
Why have graveyards at all?? When you die, you should just go unconscious, have stars circle around your head and then automatically res in 30 seconds.
Major Nanners is a Lv90 Rare Spawn in an extremely isolated location. There is literally no reason to be on that plateau except to kill Nanners, or possibly kill the water elemental for one of the Golden Lotus dailies. I highly enjoy the idea of places that are accessed occasionally and carry heftier death penalties. Don't want to risk a spirit res? Bring a group, bring a guildie, or just don't suck so much. Just don't go crying on forums to Blizzard to make this more of a monotonous world when there is a clear and reasonable way around your problem. All that said, a 10 minute penalty is nothing. People act as if they should NEVER EVER have to use spirit res.
