I was inspired to try and find this place after hearing Skolnick talk about it in his Warcraft Less Traveled podcast, episode number 2.
This wasn’t too difficult to find. It seems that Blizzard has “fixed” the quirk that allowed players to access the inside of the crater itself, so I wasn’t able to get in. But, I still got to see a lot of cool stuff that was mentioned in the podcast. The screenshots you see in this blog were taken on November 2, 2010.
Later, after the Cataclysm Expansion was released, I went back to the Azshara Crater to see what, if anything, had changed.
