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.
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!
