Does anyone else remember how long it took to run back to something as simple as the maze that was Razorfen Downs, and just about every other dungeon in game ever during Vanilla/BV.
They were LEVELING dungeons, intended for relatively new players, and they were brutal.
Random elites wandering zones all the time, that if you ran into, GG dead, there's nothing like that anymore, sure they wanted to get us out into the world, but then they made the world boring because of these kind of complaints.
And people are worried about having to run for like 30 seconds tops to reach their corpse.
I do agree though that sometimes there are issues when you die in an unreachable spot, but oh well, that's your fault for dying there, deal with it.
