Stranglethorn Vietnam is the greatest zone imo.
I also like 1000 Needles but there's too few PvP going on because of the lack of Alliance quests/FP.

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.
All of the above + eerything is dead or dying, good pvp, fun quests. It where I hit 60 on my 1st toon :mrgreen:

Our time will come.

I hate to say it, but PvE wise I guess the Barrens? The zone is memed on a lot but I think for most Horde players from back then, no other zone left this kind of impression and mark on you. The size, the quests (makriks wife anyone?), the big level range, stupid zhevra hoofs and raptor heads, Alliance raiding crossroads. You spent hours and days there. THIS is the zone where you made your first steps towards other players and finding your rythm. It is also the one zone that is NEVER empty.

Yeh spot on dude, Barrens is actually really efficient and lively - I love it.

I also like Hillsbrad as horde, call me a martyr.

My dirty secret is that my favorite leveling zone of all time is the Cataclysm version of Stonetalon Mountains, but if we're only looking at vanilla, then Duskwood and Hillsbrad.

Probably Tirisfal but I think the hinterlands and searing gorge are severely underrated.

Ashenvale. Still remember the first time going there on my undead rogue and being in awe of the aesthetics and music, not to mention the banking possibilities! It's a proper fantasy settings imo

I like the Arathi Highlands. They're open so you can see really far, and the mob density isn't super annoying, except in Stromgarde, but I liked having that sudden "whoa, this place is dangerous" feeling, kinda like Jintha'alor in Hinterlands.

STV has it all; great scenery, a plethora of quests, huge and dense landscape, and a constant anxiety due to the ever looming threat of dealing with the opposing faction on a whole new scale from any previous zone. On private servers this is different; it is STVietnam, but I don't factor those unrealistic experiences into my opinion.

Brings back so many good memories of getting lvl 10 and rerolling because I was never satisfied with my class when i was a 9-year-old.

Favorite Leveling zone is propably Tanaris. All my toons go there to do the Wastewanderer / Pirate quests because its a very reliable level or two.

By the feel and style I am gonna go with Duskwood or EPL, always liked them for the brooding atmosphere.

Which will fade the moment you start dealing with the multitude of https://www.wowhead.com/npc=114/harvest-watcher :lol: (jk)

I really miss Ashenvale. The area itself is already gorgeous, but what I miss about it, is that for me, as a night elf, it was the first time ever adventuring in a 'Contested' area.
For the first time since you started playing, you were leaving the safety of your starting zone(s), with a mix of excitement and fear, knowing that any moment you could bump into the opposite faction, and you were better to be prepared, cos 9 times out of 10, it would be an undead rogue waiting for you.

For me it's a three way tie between Dun Morogh, The Barrens and Blasted Lands.

Dun Morogh is just so beautiful and crisp and I enjoy spending time there.

Now the Barrens. Woof. The Barrens is the first time your character starts feeling less like a peon and more like a Grunt in training and I love it.

The Blasted lands holds just so much nostalgia for me, along with being sooo so close to the inevitable threat of the Burning Legion. The consumable quests are cool to do and I love hunting rares to assist the lonely Draenei.

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 watched G4's "Movies That Don't Suck" while leveling my first night elf warrior!

I have a real soft spot for wintery-type zones, so Dun Morogh is my clear favorite. There's also something great about how the zone seems so self-contained. Like, all you'd ever need is there in one place.

Burning Steppes.

I love this zone because of epic quests with Keeshan(epic story plot), a lot of lava, saving little dragons, and spying orcs.

Also, Dun Morogh, Westfall, Vietnam, Wintersprings, and Barrens

Might come as a shock to others but I loved Tanaris.. I’m a fan of the desert look and the complete chaos!
