The Hyjal server is named after Mount Hyjal, a zone in World of Warcraft that contains the site of the World Tree. For many years, Hyjal was inaccessible by players and could only be accessed through an exploit known as wall jumping, wherein players would jump up the side of an otherwise impassable mountain.
In the World of Warcraft: Cataclysm expansion, players were able to explore and level through the zone from levels 80-82. It was one of the first zones to make heavy use of Blizzard's phasing technology, which allowed different players to see different versions of the same zone depending on their quest progress within the game.
