    I spend all of my time exploring now.

    I circumnavigated the ocean edge of both 1.0 continents. I use elixir of water walking with my mount to reach the edge in certain spots where the land is close enough to the edge. Then I reset my fatigue by barely stepping off the edge. As a mage if I accidentally fall off the edge I can blink back into the water and swim up again.

    Here are two shots where I reached a land patch on the ocean edge. This patch of land is west of Menethil harbor. If you go to the western most tip of Dun Morogh then you can reach the edge of the ocean from there. Then proceed northward on the edge to reach the land. There is a similar patch of land in Kalimdor, east of Winterspring.

    The next two shots are on the ocean edge west of STV. To my surprise I crossed a zone border in the middle of the ocean, a place called Gillijim's Isle. I had never heard of it, so I Googled it and found this:

    http://www.wowwiki.com/Gillijim's_Isle

    It was an island from 1.0 alpha that was removed before release. But the zone borders are still there. The zone has chat channels and everything.

    More screens to come. I need to crop and save them.

    bizarre. I did something similar when I first started playing and decided like an idiot thinking I could run to southshore from Desolace and fell off a cliff into the ocean and decided to swim it. I took a few screenshots and if I could get my old laptop running long enough, I can upload them.

    Some pics of the area between IF and Wetlands. This is the little farming town you fly over when flying between those two locations.

    wetlands_southtown1.jpg wetlands_southtown2.jpg
    wetlands_southtown3.jpg

    And connected to that area is a tunnel that goes into the IF mountain, but it's incomplete.

    Here is a hidden lake above Dun'Algaz (the connecting series of tunnels between Wetlands and Loch Modan), normally inaccessible. This lake is actually the missing puzzle piece on the Wetlands map in the mountains to the south. That piece of the map does not reveal.

    And the top of IF:

    Here is an inactive Goblin port on the west coast of Dun Morogh:

    Here are some screenshots of the inaccessible area above Northshire, the human noob area. It's the area you fly over between Stormwind and Ironforge. I found a way to get there by first climbing the zone boundary in eastern Dun Morogh. Then I make my way over to the empty zone above Elwynn that is Stormwind. If you stay to the east side of that empty zone then there is an opening that leads to this area. You have to slow fall + mount to cross the gap.

    Notice the guy on the gryphon flying through:

    northshire_top1.jpg

    Notice the house way up top. I can't find a way to get up there:

    northshire_top2.jpg

    Notice the fishing hole:

    northshire_top3.jpg

    This is right after you enter the area from that gap:

    Couple more from the same area.

    Overlooking Northshire. Notice the guy on the gryphon flying through:

    northshire_top5.jpg

    Another shot of the house way up top:

    northshire_top6.jpg

    Other stuff. Here is the Ironforge Airport which many people have been to, though it's not supposed to be accessible:

    This guy missed the airstrip :D:

    While doing my weekly Molten Core run I had the idea to try exploring Molten Core to see if I could get to any cool inaccessible areas. I made this proposal jokingly because my warrior friend, Radamanthus, knows that I explore all these weird areas. We had finished a full clear and we went back to the entrance. I stopped and pointed at the big lavafall next to the entrance and said, "for example, if I could get up there." So we entertained the idea and checked the ledges around the lava fall, but nothing came close. Then I had the idea that I could probably swim up the lavafall since it was solid lava and you can swim in lava. Sure enough, I was able to swim it. When I got to the top I found a partial copy of BRD at the instance gate.

    Here is the view of the partial copy of BRD from the top of the lavafall (the lavafall I swam up from MC is on the left):

    moltencore_bridge.jpg

    And here is a reverse view:

    moltencore_lavafall1.jpg

    And another reverse view from farther away. Radamanthus is way up high on the top rock. You can barely see him:

    Another one from the top of the lavafall in MC. You can see behind the mask into MC:

    moltencore_mask1.jpg

    Notice in the above picture that the lava edge actually goes around the edge of the rock face. I tried to swim around the wall using that lava and was successful. Here is a picture from behind that wall. The big green thing is obviously the instance gate for MC. Once again you can see behind the mask into MC:

    Always a classic... Old Ironforge. It's technically inaccessible but many people have found ways to get in:

    This is above Coldridge which is the starting area for Dwarves and Gnomes. This is an encampment above the starting area which can actually be seen in the fly-by when creating a new character. It's normally inaccessible.

    This is looking down on the starting area.

    Those who are familiar with Scholomance know that the bat boss's platform actually looks out on Western Plaguelands. You can actually get knocked outside by the boss. I found a way to get to the equivalent platform outside of the instance, on the back side of Scholo:

    scholo_platform.jpg

    From there I was able to slow fall + mount and barely land on the edge, after which I was able to jump inside:

    An inactive Elf port on the northern edge of Azeroth. It's above Quel'thalas, the inactive and normally inaccessible zone:

    Underneath Scarlet Monastary. You can go behind it and work your way up the rock face, then jump on top of SM where there is a hole in the roof.

    sm_under.jpg

    From behind SM you can get into Quel'Thalas, an inactive and normally inaccessible zone on the northern tip of Azeroth:

    quelthalas1.jpg

    A shot above Hearthglen from Quel'Thalas:

    Above the waterfall at the northern tip of Western Plaguelands:

    plaguelands_waterfall.jpg

    A weird pit behind the waterfall:

    plaguelands_waterfallpit.jpg

    Behind the Stratholm live side entrance, you can see the two instance gates in the distance:

    strath_back2.jpg

    And closer. I actually couldn't find a way to reach that water underneath Stratholm, otherwise I would have been able to swim up under it:
