I was a pretty fresh lvl 60 when Mannoroth opened the gates (US 2nd, only pvp server in the top 10). An alliance guild rang the gong at 5 pm on a Friday with a horde guild getting a ring in as well soon after (I was so envious of the Black Qiraji mount, and still am).Yes, not only were there long queues to log on, tons of lag near Silithus, and server crashes galore, but I even heard of news reporters creating accounts and getting summoned as low level characters into Silthus to report on the event.There was a slew of enemies pouring through the gates and the bug spawns in most other Kalimdor zones (Feralas, Tanaris The Barrens, etc all were fighting them too). On top of that, the 3 big bug hives in Silthus had raid boss bugs spawn, at least one of which would do a knock-back ability that would send people anywhere near it flying across the zone, most likely to their death.The opening of Anh'Qiraj is definitely one of the things that, if you got to participate, gave WoW a VERY epic feel to it.
