*** In the original PTR launch of Patch 7.2, Datamining revealed a revisited Ruby Dragonshrine instance, along with an achievement implying that the Death Knights of Acherus would raid it to resurrect the bones of dead dragons as Wyrms to aid their war effort. This was changed very quickly, presumably because the Sanctums were destroyed by Krasus in ''Twilight Of the Aspects'', as well as it would veer the Death Knights too close to the MoralEventHorizon (as Red Dragons would ''never'' willingly submit to undeath) and turn the world against them and Bolvar. In the current client, you instead [[spoiler: Raid the Thorognir graveyard and raise already dead Storm Dragons to serve the Ebon Blade, effectively making it a victimless crime.]]

** In an attempt to foster more role-playing, taverns and bars were planned to function as they would in a traditional RPG, where one could rest in a bed for the night, sit and have a few drinks, and wait around to form a party.

** The Tram that connects Stormwind to Ironforge was originally going to be larger and cover the whole Eastern Kingdoms, but Blizzard figured players wouldn't use it for transport when it was easier to use gryphons, so the idea was scrapped.


Added DiffLines:

** Ogres as playable characters has been toyed with for a long time. Originally, they were heavily considered for a Horde race but they lost the slot to Goblins. No explanation was given, but Blizzard may have just figured that players didn't want to use guys who were notorious for being DumbMuscle and little else.

* ''Legion''
** One of the big ones that was changed during the beta. Originally in Highmountain Wrathion would appear during a story arc, ending with him using a titan time portal to bring uncorrupted (and still fertile) dragon eggs from the distant past, not just creating a new Black Dragonflight but also potentially saving the others from becoming a DyingRace. However, due to the confusing plot device (and probably a bit of fatigue regarding time travel after ''Warlords''), this story thread was dropped and replaced with Spiritwalker Ebonhorn and him testing Myala of her worthiness as High Chieftain [[spoiler: while also revealing he's an uncorrupted black dragon and the hammer of Khaz'Goroth can cleanse black dragon eggs of their corruption.]]

** [[WellIntentionedExtremist Illidan Stormrage]] is sometimes known as 'Illidindo Nuffin'. Or, "I didn't do anything." He's earned this moniker for a few reasons. One, he always thinks he's doing the right thing, even when he's wrong. Two, fans go to extreme lengths to make him into a pure, do-no-wrong good guy. Three, people worry Blizzard may make him one just to appease those fans.

* FromEntertainmentToEducation: In 2005, a new raid dungeon was introduced. The end boss could place a powerful disease, Corrupted Blood, on the players that quickly killed them. Some enterprising "Petmaster" players realized that their pets could safely carry the disease out of the dungeon and into the cities to Troll other players. A player-made epidemic swept the game; the central hubs were filled with corpses, the disease spreading harmlessly to NPCs who infected other players, healers attempted to cure the infected, eventually resulting in people abandoning the cities altogether. The servers eventually were shut down to force a fix preventing the disease from leaving the dungeon. The event is now known as the Corrupted Blood Incident and has been used by universities as a study in how epidemics spread; how a disease from a remote region is brought to urban centers by asymptomatic carriers, how people respond to the threat-some deliberately seeking it out- and how the authorities react to such events. It has also received some attention as a study in terrorism, given that players deliberately infected cities and plotted how to cause as much damage as possible.
