"So you have to be able to get into the Horde areas as Alliance. How?"At level 80, getting into enemy cities isn't too difficult.I wanted to go fishing in Orgrimmar (I'm Alliance, Night Elf Hunter) for the Fishing Diplomat achievement and to try to catch Old Crafty (for another achievement). So I ran in the side entrance on my mount, several guards followed me, but I outran them and stuck to the right wall. They disappeared in the distance by the time I reached the water in the Valley of Spirits. From there I fished for a couple of hours, shadowmelding whenever a pat came close (the snake vendor troll), and was fine. Every once and a while a low level player would attack me, or a guard (usually because of the snake vendor spotting me), but I never died. The guards aren't fooled by shadowmeld or feign death btw. But they're not hard to kill either.A blood elf even joined me in fishing and caught Old Crafty after a few minutes (I still never got it).After I got tired of fishing I mounted up and ran to Ragefire Chasm for the dungeon achievement. Again, I outran anything that chased me and made it without a single death and at least 90% of my health remaning.

You did better than I. The level 80 guards netted me and killed me when it came to RFC (that place is kind of a maze). I did ok when it came to fishing diplomat though... of course I did that on a weekday day off when few people were around

Where were these level 80 guards?The typical guards are 75:http://www.wowhead.com/?npc=31416Did you go in the front gate or the west gate? I remember there being an elite general or something that hangs around near the front gate. Maybe that's what got you.
