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.

Silverpine Forest has always been one of my favorite zones, regardless of me playing Alliance and not having actual quests there. But that first trip towards Shadowfang Keep was always something special to me. Running through Wetlands, Arathi Highlands, and then the adrenaline jump when entering Hillsbrad Foothills and Silverpine Forest, expecting some epic ganking from the fellow Horde players.

One of the main things I like about Silverpine Forest is that eerie atmosphere, ghostly mist covering the whole zone, wolves howling in the distance. Music and ambient sounds really bolster that unsettling feeling as you walk through the remnants of the old empire. I also like the layout of the entire zone, and the history that environment is telling.

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.

Tirisfal Glades.

My first character was an undead rogue, so that zone has a huge amount of nostalgia for me, especially the original Gallow's End Tavern music. I was pretty disappointed when I came back to the game and found it had been replaced with generic tavern music. And then it got even worse in Cataclysm, with Brill becoming a ridiculous, over-designed Halloween town.

I can't wait to see the real Tirisfal Glades again.

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.

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.

Stranglethorn Valley of course. Thrill of the hunt. So many events there, so many wPvP, loving the quests, the feeling, the music, it's so full of memories there...
