Top 10 World of Warcraft ZonesYour favorite World of Warcraft zones. Can be based on quests, looks, feel.
The Top Ten
Howling Fjord is my favorite zone of all times in World of Warcraft.Its music,cold brezes,plains and mysteries.I'm dissapearing in this zone each time I come to it,and it's hard to return.
I long for the day that we get to retake Gilneas
This story was great and more zones should be like this one.
Very nice zone. Music is great. Reminds me of Eastern Ontario/Quebec Canada for some reason. I think Acadian? Lumber jacks and Sasquatches also come to mind.
The music is amazing, the atmosphere was superb, the tall trees, the thick forest, the interesting quest, the worgen, even the funny outhouse quest. On every alt as soon as I can I go there and I don't leave until I far out strip everything. When wrath was going I would go there just to hang and the moment the music box came out I got that music
Looks amazing, music is amazing...
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.
The jade forest was a great start to Mists of Panaria with it's lustrous green rain forest and wonderful architecture every time I go there I get a great feeling inside it's the one place I would live if it existed in real life.
It pretty amazing. Can't wait for the patch to hit!
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.
Just love the questline and the lore
Yay! More people who like stranglethorn!
Welcome to the jungle, but watch out when the hurricane starts raging! Ambience in STV (both north and south, these days) is truly incredible. Always make my way through here!
There has always been a lot of player trafic going om in stv.
Low level on there way to nesingwary camp, met high level hidding towards zul gurub.
So many qeust, the old arena, So many times I have ganked, and been ganked in the mighty jungle. The best way to descripe is go there if you like the feeling of hunting!
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.
Unique and beautiful area, and a nice, calm atmosphere after Hellfire. I just love this zone.
Amazing. Simply put.1 Comment
I love the landscape!
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. )
Great area cool armors
You feel like alone survivor exploing a new culture
One of the best, because diverse and complete from both pve and pvp
It just is the best
When I think of WOW this is the zone I think of
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
Not the same at all since the flooding occurred. The Needles was an amazing experience to be had.
Oops, the because in my last post was meant to be because.
Great zone. First proper time as an undead player where you're put into a proper PVP environment. Very enchanting music and mobs. Loved being near the shoreline and the alliance base of Southshore to add to the tension of this whole zone, as well as its relations to Alterac Mountains which was just an absolute brutal gateway into what could be considered an open-world, zone-like dungeon. Brilliant area. Rate this just above Stranglethorn.
The most beautiful zone in the game.
The amount of time that went into making this zone must be insane. This zone really is the most unique in the entire game.
Beautiful place. Probably one of my Top 10 Favorite places in WoW.
This one. It was so dark and evil!
It was actually hard for me. I'll never forget it.
One of my favorites, it is also next to Deadwind... also my favorite.
Reminds me of 2005. when I think WoW I really think don morogh
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.
Looks really beautiful and its very unique - Harri666
Deepholm is getting underrated big time here.
Those floating crystals stun me each time I look at them...And these colours!...
This zone is a prime example of questing mixed with flying done right
It has the best story line so far, if you narrow it down to one zone only. It's also majestic, with high snowy moutain tops, the ancient city of Ulduar and other scenic areas. Furthermore, the music in Storm Peaks gives me goose bumps every time. - SirOne
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.
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.
Well made zone with the best landscapes. The tropical feel and the jungle remind me of Far Cry a lot.
