You might want to look before you leap
WoW can be so beautiful that sometimes we forget it's a game. A game that can kill you. And so sometimes we find ourselves exploring, wandering, or accidentally autorunning to our doom. Oops. Many -- most, in fact -- of our so-called "favorite" deaths seem to involve untimely falls.
- Sarah Pine: My favorite way of having died was when I first made it to Hellfire Peninsula at 60, running around on my mount exploring (flying was at 70 at that time!), I leaped over a little hill only to find that there was no more land on the other side, because that was the edge of the continent. You fall for a while off of Hellfire before you actually die, I found out.
- Anne Stickney: Once I decided to see if Outland had invisible walls around the edges. Um, for the record, it does NOT.
- Brian Wood: I still have fond memories of a multitude of deaths from failing the shortcut jump to get to the Molten Core entrance in vanilla. Had lots and lots of opportunity to practice during ghost runs.
- Michael Sacco: I liked going to the top of the Temple of Storms and leaping off.
- @DoctorOddfellow: Well, #1 has to be tree-diving from Teldrassil, right?
- @hestiahdruid: Shadow Step, Heroic Leap, or the Druid version behind a boss to fall to your doom.
- @screwlewse: Falling into the lava where Magmaw stands.
