    As a zone, it was Howling Fjord As a event before expansion it was TBC.
    The trick of selling a PvP-MMO is creating the illusion among gankers that they are respectable fighters while protecting them from respectable fights, as their less skilled half would be massacred and quit instead of “HTFU” as they claim.

    Vashj'ir has my vote for best zone in the entire game, best questing experience, best start to an expansion; I could go on. Brilliant story, brilliant zone, absolutely love it.

    MoP was pretty good, but dampened by the ridiculous lag during that first quest. So I ended up levelling my Monk first, so that's what I associate with MoP's start. The Pandaren starting zone is good, don't get me wrong, but it's nothing compared to Vashj'ir.

    The weeks leading up to TBC and the giant realm gathering on the day of release. Nostalgia ♡

    Boat ride to Howling Fjord, for mine. I still get amazing tingles when I think back to the first time we sailed through those massive cliffs, seeing the beautiful burning lights of Utgarde Keep in the distance. Damn, but I love WotLK questing zones. The Dark Portal was pretty cool too, but it was just a quest and loading screen when it came down to it.

    Voted for TBC ofcourse. Everyone who didn't vote for it either didn't play the expansion at all or weren't there the first few days or the leading days to TBC in Classic. Those were one of the best days in WoW playerbase wise. Everyone was busy with that one goal and everyone you knew loved and hated on your server went on the same time to the same spot at the launch - The Dark Portal. Although Howling Fjord was really memorable with it's art and great music, it doesn't even come close to TBC launch.

    Howling Fjord music + boat -> win.

    I didn't vote for it solely because I disliked Hellfire Peninsula from the moment I saw it. Nothing about it spoke to me at all, although the later zones more than made up for it. Oh, and there were more people playing the game by the end of TBC than there were at WotLK, although as you said they weren't all in one spot.

    lol orc is right. so many good times with that expansion. Remember the first time doing Shattered halls, wiping on every mob. Looked over at him and said " I think we joined the wrong horde" Dude never lets me forget it.

    Howling Fjord, Horde Entrance.

    Just epic!

  12. #152
    Not really the entrance, but riding the elevator up to the main section of Howling Fjord after doing the first group of quests Horde side was awesome.

    I guess I'd say Burning Crusade even though that was the one expansion I got a few months after release due to financial issues.

    The reason why I chose Outland is because I do remember walking in and just seeing some big ass elite demons all around. I knew right away that these were some powerful demons and that I was going to have to work hard to take them down.

    Nothing can hold me back!

    As someone who didn't spoil myself with TBC beta or any information on the xpac before release, going through the Dark Portal was one of my all time favorite moments of this game. The huge demon army and everyone trying to kite the pit lord up the stairs in an attempt to kill it was epic.

  15. #155
    Entering the Dark Portal was excitement followed by disappointment. You see this massive battle going on right in front of you, but instead of participating in it, you're sent OVER the battle into the barren wasteland beyond to kill...boars. What a tease.

    LK all the way...

  17. #157
    Yeah I guess I agree with Hellfire Peninsula; but Vashjir is very close if not better. The rest are not even close imo.

  18. #158
    didn't play during the start of BC and having missed the pre event made finally walking through the dark portal not that spectacular.
    Wrath had the most boring start of all, with just boarding a boat/zeplin and that was it.
    Cata hyjal, while susposed to be impressive i found it lacking even though Deathwing and ragnaros were shown.
    Cata Vash'jir, my personal favorite. while intially looking similiar too entrance you had in wrath. the crewmembers on the ship and the kraken it's attack made it really enjoyable for me.
    MoP, flying there on a zeplin. sure there was a big battle, but it lacked compared too vashjir.

    Hellfire. Stepping through the portal to an epic battle staring down demons that could end you with a single blow (and thinking you had to fight through them the first time... yea, that was me...) It's the only time in game I've ever felt an "oh shit!" moment. (discounting the felreaver, he was always there to be a cheap scare) I'll still occasionally go back and beat the shit out of the demons at the portal, just because I can now.
    Sometimes 'Merica happens, and you just have to deal with that.

    You mean like with:

    Riding a boat to Borean.
    Riding a boat to Howling Fjord.
    Riding a boat to Vashir.
    Taking a FP to Hyjal.
    Riding a sky boat to Jade forest...
    When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.
