You're going to be a warlock. You don't need to do this. Just cast a spell and the mobs will forget about the tank and swarm you.
Apr 29th 2010 11:08PM Bit late in the thread, but regarding the size of Azeroth, a friend of mine applied a little math and physics to the problem. You can read here about not only the size, but things like elevations of various places and the acceleration of gravity on Azeroth as calculated scientifically. Quite a fun read, particularly when you go through the pages in order.
