I really had to think about this one, but I'm gonna say Hinterlands. That open air dungeon, avoiding Alliance scum near Aerie Peak, walking down the cliffside switchbacks to get to the Troll fishing village... I also have a lot of music related memories that always conjure images of that zone in my head. Any time I hear Imogen Heap now I am taken back.

I have nothing fancy to add here, but if you've never played Binary Domain, you should.

The first zone that came to my mind is Elwynn Forest.

After thinking about it a bit more I would have to say it's actually the 18-35 zones. Specifically Wetlands, Duskwood and the very first few quests in STV (Kurzen etc)

It is not my favorite zone but I am looking forward to questing in Thousand Needles again. I hate what they did to it in Cataclysm.

Teldrassil, my first character back in the day was a night elf. The music and overall look of the night elf zones is so great.

Mulgore. Making my Horde Druid was a massive turning point in my WoW playing career, and has shaped how I have played the game since. I remember running around the bend and down to Bloodhoof Village on Ryder (my Druid) like it was yesterday (it was Jan 2006).

Got my own account early 2005, but played predominantly my Alliance Warrior (Selexin) on a US Server, Kil'Jaeden. I was 17 and I was bad at leveling, especially being a dual-wield Warrior at low levels. Once they launched the Oceanic servers on Jan 26 2006, I rolled Horde and never really looked back. Loved it, loved the friends I made and the community on the server. Fantastic memories. I am desperately looking forward to rolling my Tauren Druid on classic WoW, and running around that bend and down to Bloodhoof Village all over again!

I'd say Ashenvale. Why? Because it was the first zone that got me sweaty hands and sending me chills down the spine only by entering it. The general peaceful & mystic atmosphere paired with the fact that you will - for the very first time - encounter players from the opposing fraction, not knowing if your first fight will turn out in your favour, is truly unique and I personaly havn't found such a feeling in any other game yet.

I like searing gorge.
Some people disagree but I enjoy it... some of the quests are a bit difficult although easily doable as a group, and it's connected to BRD annnnnd Molten Core so you have to watch for raids.

Even though I played Horde for 98% of Vanilla, the most nostalgic places for me is Teldrassil (Gave me a "wow this is awesome" feeling) and Loch Modan. Loch Modan is cozy somehow.

Yea though classic it has to be StV for me, even after multiple expansion. Id add that Nagrand is one of the few expansions 'places' that also gave me this feel, which makes sense considering my first choice.

I have this music related memory as well! I was listening to a ton of pop punk and certain songs always trigger memories of leveling in tbc when I started playing. Even just reading the name imogen heal reminded me of the ghost lands

Oh yeah. Tarren Mill on my server was a clusterduck. It would be fun to experience that again.
STVietnam I can do fine without :lol:
Still got nightmares every time I hear the rogue stealth sound.

For Alliance, Elwynn + Westfall + Redridge, The best 1-2-3 in the game. Favorite experience, no matter what alliance class I roll, I now always run over and level here. For me, this is wow leveling peak. If I was to pick only one ally zone, probably Elwynn. But DM for best dungeon. I was a lowly lvl 11 wandering lost in Elwynn, found some 20's in goldshire and they more or less introduced me to the game (After like a week or 2 of not knowning anything.). They hooked me up with some 6 slot bags, showed me the controls because I was too stupid to look at keybindings in settings, and they groups with me, and we ran to westfall and ran DM (Got carried obv.) That night, I got hooked and have been playing ever since.

For Horde, gotta be The Barrens, specifically that initial crossroads content.

So many great places already mentioned above... I think for me it would have to be Elwynn Forest. The tranquility and lively colours are too good to pass up. Plus, there's the Goldshire Inn! I couldn't count the number of times I logged in just to head over to Goldshire and chat with the locals, haha.

I'm hyped to play through Duskwood/other zones I've never done since I mained Horde. Of course, all my friends are still going Horde so we'll see what happens.

Undead starting zone. It was my first area I ever spent time in WoW. I started so many undead characters that I became very fond of it.

I'm fond of deserts, sandy beaches, and jungles. Tanaris, Shimmering Flats, STV, Un'Goro. They feel exotic and a bit mysterious, as if I'm on vacation in a foreign place.

Man, I still remember the first time I went to Ashenvale accidentally. I was way underleveled and didn't even know it. I was maybe a level 14 warlock or something. I was trying to escape from a mob I had aggroed, then in the distance, I saw a red nameplate (or something like that). I watched it for a bit and thought to myself "that enemy npc's movement is so natural", I kept watching for a while and then it eventually dawned on me... "wait, is that another player? Why is he red?" it took me ages to realise he must have been an Alliance dog. I remember my adrenaline pumping at that time and thinking "Is he going to fight me???". In the end, I was too scared to go anywhere near him and just headed back to the Barrens. It was such a cool experience, and one of the things that really hooked me on the game. As you said, I haven't had those kinds of feelings in any other game.
