If there was second place it would probably be Val’sharah
That song belongs to Tanaan, purely down to the line
“It get’s worse here everyday”
Beautiful zone blizzard have done is Suramar. <3
Winterspring has always and will remain my favourite zone because I love snow and the tigers and yeti’s and ice giants and bears just make the zone so great to me.
Valley of the four winds ( MoP ). It`s beautiful - and questing was really smooth.
There are other cool zones, but i didnt like the questing there as much as in the valley. Shadowmoon Valley ( WoD ), Voldun ( BfA ), Nagrand ( WoD ) and Stormsong Valley ( BfA ) are some of them.
The danger zone!?!
I feel the need…
Stranglethorn Vale is easily my least favorite zone. Questing there in Classic burnt me out. Up until then I was enjoying my time playing.
My favorite’s gotta be a cross between Duskwood and the Ghostlands though. I love spooky Forests and Blood Elf lore. Duskwood has some great story to it and same goes for the Ghostlands, which is still my favorite leveling zone in retail.
Pandaria…all of it
Honestly for me Azurmyst isle with its music, endless fields and flowers is always in my heart. Azurmyst isle soundtrack is in my fav playlist on phone.
Beat ya to it
I port to Darnassus, run to Dolanaar, and just walk around from time to time.
But honestly, nearly all of the original zones are wonderful, satisfying places. The recent ones have more pixels but less heart.
Valley of the Four Winds
nothing to do with the dailies, I just love that map. I’d buy or build me a house there.
Hey, look at us.
Shadowmoon Valley. WoD edition. Loooove that place
…outdoor zone: Grizzly Hills
…zone in general: Ironforge City
(Bonus/honorable mention): original Loch Modan before it was partially destroyed in Cataclysm.
Grizzly Hills and OR Gilneas/ Havenswood
It was indeed a horrible zone for me to play at times. Whenever swimming across the big chasms (like where you capture the seahorse) or even seeing the abyss/dark areas from afar, I had do look away and try to remember that Blizzard doesn’t put surprises into their game, I won’t suddenly get pulled down into those areas in-game (or IRL) and surrounded by giant Fanfin Seadevil fish…
I love the bright, beautiful areas of Vashj’ir though. It’s such a shame it was so poorly received, because it really is one of those zones that so clearly got real love put into it from the developers!
Oh definetly, as others mentioned it was the 3D aspect of it that people aren’t used to and the game ain’t optimized for that mostly put people off of the zone.
But golly gosh I love it and I do miss the hours spendt camping the Sea Horse (Which I later bought off of the AH for like 10k lol)
Jade Forest. Specially the orange trees!
I hate to complete the chain to turn the area sha-infested. So sad!
