This is a bit embarassing ...Through WotLK I have always had an affinity of finding ... holes. The largest one I actually managed to fall into was, ofc, the Void existing around the Outland landmasses (while leveling a new toon after three month hiatus, trying to run from a mob of angry voidwalkers, not looking where I went -noob mistake, granted).In Utgarde, there is a broken staircase. I fell into a hole there, while my group - a guildgroup, not a pug - wiped. As a paladin, I rezzed them once I found my way out of the hole. We laughed. I felt silly. Especially since I fell into the hole again.In Different Locations, there is ALWAYS a hole - and I find them.Thus:While questing in Mount Hyjal, and gathering precious minerals for the AH, near an ogre cave slightly north of that worgen zone (the one where you set a wolf god free), I found an elusive mineral node. It was ... well ... sort of behind a pillar, nestled against a cliff. After some fifteen minutes of tweaking my movement, even walking towards it, I finally found the node. Now, this was just a day or two after world release and prices on the AH was in the 500 gold for stacks of 20 obsidium (on my server). I was eager for that node, aight?To my big suprise, there was no ground. It was, in fact - a void. I literally fell through the world, ending up as a corpse in Felwood. Following some two, three minutes of falling through Nothingness. Total nihilism.That's how I died in the Cataclysm.
