Top 10 World of Warcraft Zones

Your favorite World of Warcraft zones. Can be based on quests, looks, feel.

The Top Ten

1 Howling Fjord

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.

2 Gilneas

I long for the day that we get to retake Gilneas

This story was great and more zones should be like this one.

3 Stormwind City
4 Grizzly Hills

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.

5 Eversong Woods
6 Jade Forest

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.

7 Elwynn Forest
8 Dalaran
9 Shadowmoon Valley (WoD)

It pretty amazing. Can't wait for the patch to hit!

10 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.

Just love the questline and the lore

The Newcomers

? Redridge Mountains

The Contenders

11 Stranglethorn Vale

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!


12 Zangarmarsh

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.

13 Nagrand

I love the landscape!

14 Uldum

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

15 Un'Goro Crater
16 Hellfire Peninsula

One of the best, because diverse and complete from both pve and pvp

17 Netherstorm

It just is the best

18 The Barrens

When I think of WOW this is the zone I think of

19 Thousand 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

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.

20 Hillsbrad Foothills

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.

21 Mulgore

The most beautiful zone in the game.

22 Vashj'ir

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.

23 Tirisfal Glades
24 Duskwood

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.

25 Dun Morogh

Reminds me of 2005. when I think WoW I really think don morogh

26 Darkshore
27 Icecrown 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.

28 Isle of Quel'Danas
29 Wintergrasp
30 Westfall
31 Sholazar Basin

Looks really beautiful and its very unique - Harri666

32 Deepholm

Deepholm is getting underrated big time here.

Those floating crystals stun me each time I look at them...And these colours!...

33 Dread Wastes
34 Storm Peaks

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

35 Dustwallow Marsh
36 Crystalsong 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.

37 Tol Barad
38 Silvermoon City
39 Eastern Plaguelands
40 Shattrath City
41 Mount Hyjal
42 Ghostlands
43 Deadwind 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.

44 The Lost Isles

Well made zone with the best landscapes. The tropical feel and the jungle remind me of Far Cry a lot.
