    GM island never went away, they just plugged the hole used to get there and due to the way they have worked since at least wrath the GM's have had no need for it since they don't need a physical presence in the world to interact any more.

    I played around with GM Island and the Kharazan Crypts when I created a private server. Setting up a server is a great way to learn about SQL and also how applications work at the back end. As long as you don't allow other people to connect to your server you will be safe from Blizzard's legal department. To learn more look up MaNGOS; warning it is highly technical and not for the faint hearted.

    I just use ot go to these places on live servers was funnier when the GM's needed a presence in game as you would be wandering about looking at stuff then all of a sudden a person would appear near you then you would be whisked away to the dungeon on GM island, and asked how you got there so they could work on fixing the hole you used to get in.

    was actually a funny trick on cata you could get to the GM dungeon and then use mass summon to bring a load of people in, but due to the rules of the dungeon you couldn't hearth or be summoned back out so everyone you got in there had to wait for a GM to kick them out.

    I never tried on a live server in case I got banned.

    There was a way to do something funky that involved a death knight death gripping someone on a boat travelling from Booty to Ratchet. Because the boat goes through the world the person would end up in limbo.

    You might still be able to get into Kharazan Crypts as a Mage, you could Blink at a certain part of the foundations and it would get you through.

    The Death Knight Death Grip bug was due to how death grip worked. Essentially it was a teleport.
    But as the boats moved, if a DK death gripped someone, the game would try to move them to the location of the DK.
    Who was on a boat that was essentially not a valid co-ordinate.
    So the game thinks: "Oho! I need to stick this numpty somewhere."
    So it sticks them at a co-ordinate under Stonetalon Mountains. Which is the 0,0,0 co-ord.
    There's even a boat under there to catch you.

    If you were around on a busy server for the opening of AQ, and you caught a boat or zep during a server crash, this is where you'd end up.

    This may have been fixed as of Cata. I wouldn't be 100%

    But, tbh, I was amazed that GM Island showed back up on the map in 4.3!
