First off, sorry if this is the wrong section.
I have a question regarding WoW modding prohibitions. Now, I know it's illegal to modify WoW client files, but I thought of a "hole" ( or my mis-knowledge ) in the system. What if, say, we have a program that is similiar to the tool WoW Devs use ( WoW Edit ). Now let's say we make an entirely custom map using it. Not using any WoW zone or map. You just make a few empty virtual squares with no textures or objects on them. Then you start "modding" them until you have something that looks like a WoW zone. Is that illegal?
