    I am qualified to comment on it, much to your dismay.
    I hate to be confrontational, but come on; of course the Shieldwall/Dominance dailies are directly tied with Pandaria's content and lore. They are in Pandaria, bringing war to the continent, and deal intensely with both Horde/Alliance lore, as well as Mogu lore.

    To say otherwise is just... well, it's a lie.

That actually made leveling far more interesting.

    however I never recall seeing him appear in starting zones or over major cities, so it wasn't even a world wide feel to deathwings attacks.
    Oh yeah, loved that one. Unfortunately, it was still very seldom and only covered little bits of land actually. More of a small flaming of barren areas than a real WORLDBREAKER APOCALYPSE.

    going "places" due to game glitches is not really discovering tid bits as you say. It is the same thing as how you had the ghost-gryphon bug that allowed you to fly pre-cata yea it was "exciting" for people but not really what the game meant for you to experience.

    ATM there is not big event because...well the horde/ally constant war is big enough. I honestly thign there will be cool story events in the future but we can all reminisce about the 1st time we did anything...first pokemon game, first bleach episode, etc. It should not however cloud your judgement/perspective of what is here and now vs what you once did. What the LK even awesome? hell yea! would that annoy alot of people if it happened today...probably.

    Karazhan Crypts was always my favourite, and unless they changed it very recently, still accessible. I won't post how to here, but you can find out if you really want to.

    So essentially you miss glitching the game out.

    Why?

    Everyone acts like the things listed in this thread were such a magical experience, when actually you did it/went to it, and that was it. Or you glitched onto roofs and killed people that couldn't reach you like a champ.

    Far, far too much rosy-glassed nostalgia here.

    The only place I ever really had much "fun" exploring was under IF. And that was just when I had literally nothing else to do. It was a time filler.

    That doesn't mean the game is necessarily better off without these fun little glitches and easter eggs. WoW was much more organic in classic when compared to the streamlined version we have today, and in many ways organic was better.

    There is nothing, and by god I mean NOTHING, that I miss more, than me and my friends making our way to Goldshire, quickly killing everyone there while we got onto the Goldshire Inn roof before any other players came. Then turning the inn roof into our own little fort, and sitting there, for hours on end, killing everyone who came to try and kill us.

    Goldshire Inn PvP.

    Glitches your way into a hidden area isn't an easter egg put in the game. An easter egg is something a developer purposefully hid for people to find, not people manipulating the game in unintended ways to find unfinished content.

    There are still plenty easter eggs in the game.

    I am not saying the game is or is not better off because of these glitches. I'm just saying they aren't as amazing as people ITT seem to "remember" it being.

    Chaos is fun till you're the one underfoot,as for zoning into unfinished zone the only one i ever did was the dk booty bay boat one that sends you flying, and i was promptly told by a GM "Dont do that again plz",i prefer the mostly stable mists right now.

    Blizzard doesn't cater to cheaters and they never will, so I hope you don't think this opinion is somehow relevant to blizz's future.

    Well the "gating" of players and "guiding" them is implemented in most of current games (atleast mainstream games). They just have to follow the trend.

    I remember how my brother always found new places to bug himself up to, he even bugged himself out in Isle of Conquest and Arathi Basin and capped flags. One of the reasons he quit wow was because of this, much of the mysteries and fun stuff that the player made themself is gone now...

    You can still explore. Yes, most of the outside unseen world (troll village for example) is gone, but there is still many places to reach.

    Most of what we've shown on this video is still doable now. And contrary to other scoundrel communities we don't use our knowledge of the game to gain advandage over other players
