For me personally, it's Felwood. I love the aesthetic of the zone itself, and dealing with all the Furbolgs is a part of the zone I remember very fondly. Also, it's within the "home-stretch" of the 50-60 bracket and is a fun zone with the tacked on reminder of you're almost level 60 and ready to enjoy the end-game experience.

For leveling as Alliance, I loved the Redridge Mountains with the aesthetic of the area and I enjoyed the plot. It's when you're really getting into your class and learning how it really works.

For leveling as Horde, I thoroughly enjoyed the Barrens. I enjoyed the WPvP and the challenges with additional higher level Alliance scrounging for easy kills. Working together to make sure we all don't die and having fun with Chuck Norris was the best and I hope to expect the same this time around.

I like 1k Needles. The feeling of being away from all civilization and just out in the burning sun in the wilds is cool.

Full bore!

+1 for the Redridge mountains. Love that zone. Westfall is a close second.

Westfall was a great area, I absolutely loved it there as well, I loved the farm theme/colours. Pretty much all of the Human areas were really fun for me tbh.

I have a huge amount of nostalgia for Westfall.

One Saturday morning in 2004, I was playing WoW while watching a show called "Cheat!" on G4. The hostess was explaining that if you go to Westfall and emote at a chicken 100 times, you'll get him as a companion.

Of course I couldn't resist and I did it immediately. For some reason that has always been one of my fondest WoW memories and I'll always remember Westfall for it.

I personally really enjoyed Ashenvale and Tanaris. This is as an Alliance player, but both had some really cool locations and fun quests. Ashenvale and the Nelf hunters lodges were awesome, and the PvP with other similar level players around the places was a lot of fun!

Azshara, it always felt so mysterious and beautiful. I was fascinated by the few quests and chains that led there.

Probably Ashenvale - the first serious clash with the opposing faction giving you a kick of adrenaline, great lore in terms of Warsong Gulch and of course, the soundtrack, to my mind the best in the game.

Also, this. Moving to Thousand Needles always gave a feeling of actually "growing up", leaving the Barrens where you did spend most of your childhood and now moving to uncharted areas where you are on your own.

Honorable mention - Dun Morogh. It just has something magical to it. Most likely going to do with my long-time dream of leveling a Dwarf warrior, which to this date hasn't been fulfilled.

Really difficult for me to choose only one. So many zones got an amazing feel to them. Winterspring, Darkshore, Ashenvale, Stonetalon Mountains, Feralas and Thousand Needles.I love those zones on Kalimdor, a lot, but I do think I lean more towards Stonetalon Mountains. The area just feels right and your class feels in a good spot around that level range.

Tirisfal Glades, Silverpine Forest, Wetlands, Loch Modan, Badlands, Redrigde Mountains, Duskwood, Swamp of Sorrows, Stranglethorn Vale on the Eastern Kingdoms. These are all good in my book, though I think I lean heavily towards Loch Modan. It's a beautiful and easy going zone.

Its too difficult to choose just one but my favourite zones are Tanaris, Un'goro, Felwood, Winterspring, Feralas & Stranglethorn Vale.

Wonder if anyone will mention Silithus?

Eastern Plaguelands, it's the perfect high-level zone because of how dangerous it feels. There are elites on the road, your only real quest hub is this worn down church that looks like it'll break down any minute, and on the Horde side even your primary quest giver despises you, you're really just not welcome in this place. It'd also go on to house the last and most difficult raid in the game, and overall I think it also had the most ties to Warcraft 3's story.

Always had fond memories of Barrens and Ashenvale as well.

Looking forward to EP very much for that reason. The culling of stratholme was the most memorable mission of the Reign of Chaos campaign for me.

Just one? Oh my god, will try (even if I will probably change idea in 5 minutes from this post).

If I have just to choose one I would say Barrens. I know, it's a cliche, but there are so many things to do in there that it has a ton of replayability.

From an aesthetic point of view, I would say Mulgore by far: I could roll on those plains for a month :D

You said it better than I did. Once in 1k Needles I always felt the game started doing less handholding with the questing hubs.

There are so many good ones, but if I had to pick a couple, I'd have to say Eastern Plaguelands and Winterspring, for vastly different reasons.

EPL, because of a lot of what Fnonk said. The zone contains quite a few epic quest chains (Darrowshire, Tirion Fordring) and the final raid zone of the game, along with one of the best dungeons in Stratholme.

Winterspring, because it's my favorite zone in the game.

Ashenvale. Stonetalon a close second.

Coming from Horde side I've always enjoyed the feeling of finally venturing out of the Barrens into contested territory, and these are the first zones where I always had to watch my back while leveling.

Yes, STV is much worse when it comes to the lurking threat, but in that case there's so much PvP that you're almost desensitized, whereas in Ashenvale and Stonetalon there were bouts of tranquility that would lull you into a false sense of security.
