The first toon I levelled through Cataclysm was (one of) my hunter(s). Breezed through everything easy peasy with the aid of my jormungar. And then we came across Baron Geddon. There were about 15-20 of us all fighting him (since it was the launch night), and I didn't even realise I should pay attention to my chat. Didn't see the warning, and died. Luckily, however, about 90% of the others also were not paying attention, and a great swath of us dropped like flies. I also was not the only one to die again to him. And again.My warlock, as far as I can recall, has not yet died. She is only 82 at the moment though, so I'm expecting that her first Cataclysm death is waiting around the corner with a malicious smirk.My DK ... Oh God, I don't want to have to admit this. I started levelling my DK through Vashj'ir in her atrocious Naxxramas gear. She died over and over and over again. Sure, I was trying to get the hang of playing her again after over a year of ignoring her. But the numbers of times she dropped is humiliating. She *also* died about three times to Baron Geddon, but - in my defense - I was suffering with absolutely terrible screen freezes every 20 seconds.

Oh, yes, and my hunter died numerous times to Alliance who - taking advantage of the sheer number of players in that cave full of elementals in Hyjal that night - were deliberately running around flagged as PvP, waiting for a poor Horde sucker to alt-tab and accidentally hit them. Unfortunately, I became one of those poor Horde suckers, and ended up dying after I shot a paladin by mistake and twelve of them jumped me.
