Simply because "illegal terrain" is not always out of line of sight.If they put a bunch of mobs across a small chasm that is not intended for players to be able to cross, all one would have to do is target a mob on the other side and Heroic Leap your way over there.While I doubt there's really any places in the game that are intended to be entirely inaccessible, Blizzard does want you to have to work for certain things to reach certain places... why else would they effectively force everyone under level 77 to huff around Northrend on the ground?So imagine now there's a big nasty named spider you have to kill right across this gully. Unfortunately, the average player has to run down into the gully, fighting regular spiders along the way, then back up the other side, to reach this named spider. But oh! You're a warrior. HEROIC LEAP! You're there.Yeah. A bit unfair to the rest of us.And yes, a DK might be able to just Death Grip the stupid spider over, but if you've played a DK yet you'll know that a lot of those kinds of named mobs are very much immune to Death Grip.

And yet they will aggro from it, and then run down through the gully, aggroing all the other spiders on the way, and come back up with an army of fifty spiders that all attack you at once, killing you in half a second?
