The Top Ten

Western 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.

2Grizzly 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.

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.

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

5Eversong Woods

6Stranglethorn Vale
Yay! More people who like stranglethorn!

7Thousand 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

9Howling Fjord

10The Barrens

The Contenders

11Hellfire Peninsula

12Un'Goro Crater


14Elwynn Forest

15Icecrown 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.


17Hillsbrad Foothills

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

19Sholazar Basin
Looks really beautiful and its very unique


20Dustwallow Marsh

21Crystalsong Forest
This zone has always been my favorite zone in the Northrend region. From a lore standpoint, it was the one place that the Lich King could not touch, and the zone itself is just amazingly beautiful! If it were real, I would spend an eternity there just to gaze at its beauty. On top of that, Dalaran, the floating city above the forest, also beautiful to see.

22Dun Morogh

23Isle of Quel'Danas

24Tol Barad


26Silvermoon City

27Stormwind City

28Tirisfal Glades

29Eastern Plaguelands


31Shattrath City


33Mount Hyjal



36Shadowmoon Valley (WoD)
It pretty amazing. Can't wait for the patch to hit!

37Deadwind Pass
It's such a dark place.. I like it! :D
Karazhan was my favorite raid of all time. It was amazing and Deadwind is so awesome! Even though there's not much to do there.. just explore! You can find a bunch of creepy junk there...O. O
This will always be my favorite. Great for RP.
