    Flying over Zul Aman

    There is no such thing as Zul Aman. I just flew over there on the PTR (since for some reason you can fly there).

    Anyways, here is a picture from above the entrance






    Update: Seems like I wrong, at least a little. The place has been moved a little further away from the gates. Got some screenshots from inside the place

    That's the actual world. Wouldn't you be "lazy" and only put it in as an instanced zone instead of both and instanced and a "real-world" zone like Zg?

    There wasn't a reason to put ZA in and I neither see a reason to do it now. It's probably a bug that you can fly there.

    you can fly over the entire Ghostlands now, but not the northend area where silvermoon is. Normally you can't fly why I fly but I found a way around it at the southern borders where you use the portal to get to the real world (real eastern kingdom). I was hoping they would let you see zul aman from above but apperently they just dumped a bunch of rocks all over the place and called it a mountain.

    Also, they do have some invisible walls in the zone to prevent you from seeing things from above but its not waterproof as there are places you can get to fly around it.

    You know, if you flew east some more, you'd see the actual new uninstanced version of ZA, right? I've explored around there, kinda boring, but neat.

    What should they have done? You're not supposed to see that area unless you're doing something you're not supposed to be, so there was no need to put anything there.

    This is why they revamped all of Azeroth. Cause by allowing flying, people would see their lack of stuff behind walls. Without flying, those places were never seen and thus needed no texturizing or attention. Same with TBC starting areas, you're not meant to fly there (maybe now with 4.1)

    Yeah actually I have seen it. After further searching the area I found that if you jiggle your way around some of the invisible walls you get inside Zul Aman. Looks pretty nice.

    If you think about if, that area east, ZA, that area is not even on the map. If you fly over it and look on the map you can see that you are on the sea while you are infact flying over ZA

    It's not the case of me doing something I'm not suppose to. It's ridiculously easy to get behind the scenes. With blizzard intent to be able to fly there, they left a few spots open to explore behind the the invisible walls. Not that it matters to me but it would be wise of them to close those gaps before live
