    Zone stories & Quests.

    I'm just curious as to what zones from each expansion have been the most like and disliked. I have odd opinions on some of them myself. I seem to be one of the few that loved Vash'jir. So i wanted to see how many responses i might get and get some input from other players. I'll start off. Say...maybe the two most loved and hated zones from each time frame.

    Vanilla:
    Most hated: STV & Burning Steppes.
    Most loved: Tanaris & Felwood.

    Post-cataclysm revamp of Vanilla zones:

    Most hated: Silithus & Southern Barrens.
    Most loved: Tanaris & Burning Steppes.

    Burning Crusade:
    Most hated: Nagrand, Blade's Edge.
    Most loved: Zangarmarsh & Netherstorm.

    WotLK:
    Most hated: Howling Fjord & Dragonblight.
    Most loved: Sholazar & Storm Peaks.

    Cataclysm:
    Most hated: Deepholm & Twilight Highlands.
    Most loved: Uldum & Vash'jir.

    Mists of Pandaria:
    Most hated: Townlong Steppes & Krasarang Wilds.
    Most loved: Dread wastes & Kun-Lai Summit.
    ======================================
    That about sums it up for me. This is neither a new or interesting topic, i'm sure. Just curious. Was fun to re-play through everything the last few months and reminisce.

    Vanilla:
    Hate - Silverpine (damn you, sons of Arugal, and your then-unusually high level...), Desolace (zzzz...)
    Love - Plaguelands. Both of 'em

    Haven't done any post-Cataclysm revamp stuff

    Burning Crusade:
    Hate - Hmm, they were all pretty nice... Blade's Edge, I guess?
    Love - Isle of Quel'Danas.

    Wrath:
    Hate - Sholazar
    Love - Literally every other zone 'cept Crystalsong, since there was ultimately something going on with the Yogg-Saron story, which is the best storyline they've done

    Cataclysm:
    Hate - Uldum - zzzzz....
    Love - Vashj'ir - best questflow in the game

    Pandaira:
    Hate - Valley of the Four Winds (not too much though, but still...)
    Love - Kun-Lai Summit, Dread Wastes, and the 5.1 storyline which crosses several

    Classic:
    Dislike - I didn't really dislike any Classic zone. If maybe only Azshara - took ages to get anywhere in that zone.
    Love - Plaguelands (both), Felwood, Elwynn Forest.

    TBC:
    Dislike - Didn't dislike any zone.
    Love - Netherstorm. It had very transcendental feeling.

    WotLK:
    Dislike - Wintergrasp though it is not actual zone. But it was right in middle of the map and was flagging and auto-dismounting you if you were flying over it.
    Love - Icecrown of course!

    Cata:
    Dislike - Uldum. Too much of stupid Harrison Jones quests.
    Love - Mount Hyjal.

    MoP:
    Dislike - any zone except one I love. Too much pandas, monkeys and virmens.
    Love - Dread Wastes.
