The area shown at the end was actually accessible on live servers in vanilla. If you were a mage you could enter deadmines then turn around and blink through the portal without zoning out. On the instance sever the tunnel would simply come out in the side of a cliff. After a long fall into water and some swimming there was a flat white plane that seemed to go on forever. A long enough ride in the right direction and you would arrive in the spot shown with the floating rocks and trees. It wasn't very big but it was very cool to see at the time. I'm not sure if any other classes were able to get there. I always called it my secret mage hideout.

Just to clarify now that I'm rereading what I wrote. I'm talking about the area at the end of the video, not the end of the article.

It was actually still accessible to all classes in Wrath, and may still be there (I haven't tried recently). The trick was to hop onto the pipe directly across from the instance portal, run into the smallest corner of the wall on there you could, then use a potion of giant growth while jumping, which would displace you through the wall. Then you had to slow fall or use some ability to slow your descent, mount up and run-leap forward to get enough forward momentum to hit the water instead of falling to your death in nothingness.
