Crossing Dark portal for the 1st time After enter stair of destiny it was just "oh wow" never again got same feeling in warcraft
Winning an arena does feel gratifying but I like killing all the leaders of horde cities in epic world pvp raids
Killing Lich King for the first time. Getting ICHYOTSOHAIA. Sitting in Org with a mount and title no one outside my guild has.
It's not just the best feeling in WoW, it's one of the best feelings ever. The sense of accomplishment and self esteem makes you higher than any drug could
Edit: Also, the feeling after coming out the victor in a world pvp situation. My hands are usually shaking uncontrollably (i dont pvp a lot >.>) but i just feel so relieved....and run away or log on another toon so they cant try to get revenge
I'm really into rare spawns, so when I kill something I've been camping I always get this awesome feeling that makes however long I've been working at getting it feel so worth it
As a mount collector, it was when I FINALLY saw my Raven Lord drop, after about 5 months of doing HSeth every day.
Conversely, as a mount collector, my worst feeling in WoW was the day before 4.0 came out, when my last chance to get my ZG Zulian Tiger was a bust. Had been doing ZG every 3 days for about a year, got the raptor, but never got my favorite mount in the game, the Tiger.
Killing a boss after hundreds of wipes. More or less a sense of relief at that point opposed to joy.
Winning a rare drop item/mount (Dragon's call back in vanilla on my warrior)
When it comes to PvE, I have always loved that rush you get as a healer when you negate a wipe by using every trick your class has. Whether anyone says anything or not ( but usually someone else is a good enough player to acknowledge it) you know you just kicked ass.
In PvP, there is absolutely nothing I love more than being on my Rogue, and either just owning someone before they know what hit them, or finding someone that is your equal and you go at it for what feels like an eternity ( in retrospect its usually like 15-20 seconds) and winning. Its something I've enjoyed since Vanilla.
for me personally my single greatest feeling was the first time i downed archimonde back in the day. We benched 8 ppl and 17 manned him and 1 shot him after wipes for like 4 nights with all 25. it felt good man. nothing else seems to even come close to that moment for me.
Progression kills, Spine heroic kills(because the people we manage to PuG always manage to mess up), WoL ranks(ones I'm most proud of are my FL10H ones, even though they were during DS. I got them without Dragonwrath). All of those are great feelings, no idea which one is the best, though. Probably WoL, because I'm a DPSwhore like that.
Progression raiding, as always. Cheering on vent and all the excitement is an amazing feeling that I carry with me for days.
Also, getting a new expansion and spending the first few days enjoying everything new it has to offer. Several friends and myself have gone to the midnight release of the WoW expansions at our local Game Stop since BC, its invigorating to be there with so many fans of the game. So much to talk about, the 2 hours before midnight just fly by.
single best: when as a nub i first hit 70 in BC before leveling was ezmode, as a restokin...as a restokin...cause i was on a pvp server.
close 2nd: when i got my first flying mount in BC.
close 3rd: when i had my first 100k gold in the bank.
Killing a boss that has been a pain.
Also pretty shallow but topping the DPS meters on a fight. Keeps the same content from getting stale if it's a bit competative imo
Grand Crusader kill undoubtedly.
Still proudly wearing the title!

The screams on the Ventrilo channel back in Burning Crusade after downing a new boss, fantastic!
My best feeling was probably downing Illidan in TBC. Our guild worked so hard, and came out from a new guild to one of the top guilds on the server. I'll never forget those screams of cheer down vent...
Close second was probably killing Archimonde after wiping for around 4 days straight.
Good ol' times.

When i click that "logout" button.
- My first epic item, the Skullflame Shield, which my Paladin wore proudly while AoE leveling.
- Completing the quest chain for my Paladin's charger.
- Hitting the level cap for the first time, during TBC, on my Paladin.
- Joining my first (10-man) raiding guild during Wrath, encountering and killing my first raid boss in Naxx, as a tank.
- Raid leading as a tank for my guild's very first kill of Kel'Thuzad.
- Moving up to a 25-man raiding guild, tanking (and clearing) Naxx at the next level.
- My Paladin's luck all throughout Wrath, including the original ZG raptor (first attempt), TLPD, Raven Lord (<10 attempts), Rivendare's Deathcharger (35 attempts), Swift White Hawkstrider (28 attempts), fishing up the Sea Turtle while getting fish for raids, and both Bindings of the Windseeker (within a month of each other), and being able to afford a Starcaller run when it was still relevant.
- Faction changing to Horde, along with gender changes for my Paladin and Hunter. My Paladin went from being a male Human to a female Blood Elf, while my Hunter transformed from a female Night Elf to a male Troll. Ah, much better.
- Leveling my Hunter and retiring as a main tank during ToC, and never looking back. I look back upon my tanking days fondly, but I have so much more fun with my Hunter now. I hardly play my Paladin anymore, but I think I may shake off the dust during MoP, and try both tanking and DPS on her.
- Finishing "What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been", "Glory of the Hero", "Glory of the Ulduar Raider" (both 10 and 25 versions), and "Glory of the Icecrown Raider" (both 10 and 25 versions).
- Obtaining one million gold.
- Finding out that achievements, mounts, and companions will be account-wide in MoP. My Hunter has surpassed my Paladin in achievements and companions, but my Paladin is still ahead on mounts. In MoP, it won't matter anymore. In fact, I will feel more inclined to play alts in general (though I'll still spend most of my time on my Hunter).
I think of all of these, killing my first raid boss or killing the last boss in the raid (Kel'Thuzad) were probably the high points. It's pretty hard to top the "firsts".
Finding treasure chests in the wild that have exciting items. For raiding I guess first time we beat Yogg on 10 then did it on 25 a while later.
