The Top Ten

Eversong Woods

2Western Plaguelands
Having played through vanilla-mists of pandaria I've just about always rolled my toon through the western plaguelands as it's got an interesting landscape with a dark, scarred feel to it. It's also had a very interesting series of quests before and after cata ranging from killing a bunch of scourge to helping a dead girl be layer to rest. It's also added challenge such as hard mobs that were intended to get people ready for raiding as it was originally a 55-60 zone, an example was this were the nightmare level? Skeleton group in vanilla - wrath that could kill you in about two or three hits unless you were geared
I agree. Western Plaguelands was always pretty dark.. The dark places are the best though.

3Howling Fjord


5Grizzly Hills
When I quested in Grizzly Hills, I was reminded of my questing in the Hinterlands or Elwyn. to get away from the cold frozen Northrend, and the quests were wonderful, there were the worgen quests, the giants, and the ruined iron dwarf city made the zone feel so alive.

One of the best looking zones in the game. First half of the zone quests are great, yet the later half lacks a bit. No one can deny the beauty of this zone (Well maybe if you play on low WoW graphics. I feel bad for you if you do. )
You feel like alone survivor exploing a new culture

7Elwynn Forest

8Stormwind City

9Jade Forest

Beautiful. Very lush, but yet very dangerous zone. Filled with all kind of mobs. The whole experience is great. Easy, fun quests, great music. Simply love this zone.
Unique area, the zone offers a lot and the questing isn't too tedious, gives a nice sense of adventure and is still good in 2013.

The Contenders

11Stranglethorn Vale
Yay! More people who like stranglethorn!

12Thousand Needles
There was a little feel of satisfaction when you killed bloodthirsty harpies on the steep mountainside, and walking around down in the valley, watching towering mountains peak up everywhere.

The quests in this zone was probably some of the best back in classic, and yes, you were running, but at least they were packed up a bit. It might not have the most exotic of looks, but the feel of this zone was great, and the questflow amazing. I miss it :(
I remember when there were giant spikes everywhere around flat land. Much like Blade's Edge in Outland. And I think there were racing quests, with car.. Things.. You can still even find the finish lines under the flooding. :"( Brings back many because and Vanilla memories... ;D
Oops, the because in my last post was meant to be because.

It just is the best

14The Barrens


16Hellfire Peninsula

17Un'Goro Crater

18Hillsbrad Foothills

19Icecrown Citadel
This zone while a bit bland in the middle ring had possibly the best questline in warcraft as it gave the most information about the lich king in an interesting way, and made you see him in a different way then you did before. The zone was also the final zone up until hrothgars landing which evan then people were going back to in groups to do the massive dailies where you had to kill 3 elite abominations or the giant skeletons, this created a new way for guilds to get together and prepare for icecrown.

This one. It was so dark and evil!
One of my favorites, it is also next to Deadwind... also my favorite.
