Breakfast Topic: Be honest -- did you make it over the Wailing Caverns jump?


I had a moment of pure nostalgia last night when I remembered what is quite possibly my favorite World of Warcraft memory of all time. Back when the game originally released (probably that very night, knowing us back in college), our adventurous little Horde band hit the Wailing Caverns, level-appropriate and everything. After killing approximately 9 billion Deviate Raptors and getting lost in the caverns for over an hour, we finally made it to the dreaded Wailing Caverns jump.

You know the jump. Right next to the waterfall about two floors up on the "right" side of the instance. It's easier to get to now that Wailing Caverns has essentially been cut in twain. You can still go to the jump and miserably fail like Gorgomite did.

Gorgomite has long since quit WoW, but he was my first guild master and good friend. We played Dark Age of Camelot together, and with the built-in guild community we created in other games, moved over to WoW. That fateful night, Gorgomite could not make it over the Wailing Caverns jump. Try as he might, he just couldn't make it. Lag? Maybe. Crappy laptop wouldn't let him jump at the right time? Most likely. We all laughed for a good 30 to 45 minutes figuring out how to get him over that jump. It was the best.

How many of you fell because of the Wailing Caverns jump? Be honest. I can tell who is lying.
