    What is the worst continent in WoW in terms of atmosphere ?

    Not counting draenor as everyone didnt see it yet

    azeroth and kalimdor counted as a single continent

  2. #2
    Why are you counting Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor as one? They are two separate continents.

    Still though, I vote Kalimdor. Most of the zones there I hated leveling in.

    I don't really see the point of this because Kalimdor/EK have much more zones than Outland/Northrend/Pandaria. Some of those zones might have good atmosphere, some don't. It isn't really fair to compare them because of the size difference.

    You would have been better off just doing Outland/Northrend/Pandaria.

    I'd vote Kalimdor as well. Why did you combine Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor?

    Outland without a doubt. Of course there are some nice places. But Hellfire, SMV, Area 52 etc these all look worst. They do fit the lore/context/situation a little but we are not discussing that. right?

    Geography lesson: Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor are two separate continents.

    Northrend and Pandaria are also Azeroth.

    Azeroth is the whole world. Or globe. Not a continent.

    Yet another MMO-C poll that is impossible to vote on and will provide useless results.

    Kalimdor? Hello. Kalimdor got to be the best. Nothing beats Mulgore.

    True.

    Kalimdor + Eastern Kingdoms + Northrend + Pandaria (and any future additons) = Azeroth

    Then we have Outland / Draenor.

    Outland all the way, holy hell was it boring to start in a featureless wasteland, of course there were a couple of good zones but frankly the overall score for that continent is in the negative for me.

    I loved Burning Crusade and Outland at the time, but there were too many stark, bright colors in my opinion. Starting with Wrath and Northrend the style of the zones became fantastic.

    Even though I'm choosing Outland, two of the most memorable zones in the game to me are Zangarmarsh and Nagrand. None of the continents were "all bad" to me.

    Outland hands down. Nagrand and Shadowmoon are probably the only zones there which I don't hate.

    Pandaland, because fuck pandas.

    Now if i could have chosen Kalimdor i would have. Hate those zones. The night elf lands give me a headache, the barrens are barren (Though i love the southern barrens now), and the desert zones are the worst representations of deserts i have ever seen in a video game.

    Actually that's incorrect, while Azeroth is the name of the planet, it is also the name of the Eastern Kingdoms subcontinent below Khaz Modan. The Kingdom of Stormwind inhabits the Azeroth subcontinent, and in older days before the first war was called the Kingdom of Azeroth

    The problem is in Warcraft "Azeroth" was often referred to part of the Eastern Kingdoms. I don't know why anyone would make that mistake nowadays though.

    Outland to me has the best zones. With the exception of maybe Storm Peaks and Crystalsong forest, never have the zones had so much creativity.

    Hellfire is arguably the worst, but it serves it's purpose as a Hellfire wasteland.

    The HUGE mushrooms in Zangarmarsh, plus the ambient tone and color make this zone epic.

    Nagrand is Nagrand. Probably the most loved zone in all of Outland. The huge floating rocks with waterfalls that come out of nowhere are epic.

    Terrokkar Forest: The trees with the glowing light shining through make this zone look epic. Then in your travels you comes across this wasteland known as Auchindoun, and you wonder what happened here? Plus Shattrath is here.

    Shadowmoon Valley: The fel energies running through this zone make it epic. The huge mountain with green shit all over the place. Plus coming up on this huge palace looking this such as the Black Temple make this zone look epic.

    Blades Edge mountain: HELLO! There are huge SPIKES coming out all over the place. I remember the first time I saw Zangarmarsh I was awestruck, then not much later I see these HUGE spikes coming out of the mountain, and I almost came in my pants.

    Netherstorm: Hello! There's a huge NETHER STORM going on. And huge floating dungeon and raid instances. And bio domes!

    On top of this all you have the spacey, planetary sky in all the zones, that just make it out of this world. And really this is why Outland, to me, was so much better than any other zones in the game. Because it was so alien. The designers really got to use some creativity that, as I said before, hasn't been seen since in the zones.

    How anyone can think any zone in Pandaria is better than Outland is crazy! Pandaria was just awful. I remember not being totally impressed with the Jade Forest, and hoping it would get better as I saw each zone, and it never got better. Just shitty bland zones in all of Pandaria. The only thing cool about Pandaria were the mountainous regions of Kun Lai. Blizzard did an exceptional job with the realism of the mountains, and with the ambient changes as you gradually got higher in altitude. It really does feel like I'm climbing a mountain in Tibet.

    Azeroth/Kalimdor?

    Anyway I say Outland only because nothing has changed there, nothing. It's been the same old content from when Burning Crusade was released so it's so boring anymore to quest there. It's sad too because that used to be my most favorite place to quest. After questing there so many times, I now just try to just rush through it so I can quest in Northrend.

    I can't decide, the individual zones make it rather difficult to come to an answer.
