    What did the entrance to Ghostlands look like in Vanilla?

    I've always wondered, sorry for making a thread, I can't seen to find any images on google! Some have told me that there are fallen trees, and it looks how it does now, but I want to know for certain.

    Near Quel'Lithien Lodge, there is a small path that leads to Quel'Thalas — more specifically, to the Ghostlands. Guarding this path is single high elf NPC by the name of Adon, a reference to the addon/expansion: The Burning Crusade. The path was previously blocked by fallen trees, some of which still can be seen to the left of the current road, which goes through a mountain pass. The pass goes through an instance portal, which blocks those without the expansion from entering the blood elves' homeland.

    From WoWpedia, don't have a picture though.

    As others have told you it was very much blocked by fallen tree's to which there was no way past.

    if you read his signature, you should get the joke.
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    Yup. And those trees are still there, only moved off to the side since the elves.. well.. cleared the way.
    Behind it was a simpler looking gateway than there is now too, with a non-functioning swirlyportal inside.

    The portal was meant to keep people without TBC away from there, but now that TBC comes with the basic game, why is the portal still there? Devs being lazy?

    Sections off the old world, i think it's because you can't fly in ghostlands

    That and physically it's not part of the old world, but part of the TBC worldserver. It's why you have Akama and Maiev on your loading screen when going to Silvermoon, and why you can see an arrow pointing to a party member on your minimap when you're in the Ghostlands and they're in Hellfire Peninsula.

    Ghostlands is east of Netherstorm. Exodar and the Draenei starting zones are east of Hellfire Peninsula. If you have Graphics maxed, you can see the edge of the starting areas while flying in Outland - if you look in the right place and at the sides of your screen (you can see further at the side).

    And the fact that if you Edit the range at which your computer can see you can see both the blood elf and space goat land floating in space just out of range from netherstorm.

    Maybe i should have refreshed before post guys above me already got it
