    Frankly, i'm baffled this myth still holds. WoW did that kind of thing before FF14 even released. It's the community pretending the PCs are just "normal people". Blizz hasn't treated them as such for a very long time.
    I think this more refers to us not being referred to as a chosen one, but instead we started off as normal adventurers and earned titles along the way.

    Answering my own question, it's actually VERY hard. It depends on which direction I want to come from:

    Nostalgia: Outland. This was my very first time playing World of Warcraft and I LOVED the feeling of the Dark Portal, Hellfire Peninsula, the skybox, and of course, the beauty of Nagrand.

    Favorite place to explore: Zandalar AND Kul'Tiras. Believe it or not, I actually love the aesthetic of these zones. The towns, cities, zones, all of it.

    Favorite leveling: Draenor. Loved the linear story-telling, cutscenes, and flow.

    Favorite expansion: Legion. I loved everything about Legion. I miss it A LOT!

    At least Sethrak High Arakkoa didn't have them, right?

    Oh, sure, we earned our special treatment. But we still get it.

    Continent: Broken Isles
    Zone: Eversong Woods.

    Broken Isles is self-explanatory.

    Eversong, while also self-explanatory, holds an extra special place in my heart as its the zone i got to experience for the first time.
    And with 'experience' i mean 8 years old me aimlessly runing around, not being able to control the camera and basically holding this expression for the whole time:


    Until i reached Ghostlands, which was upsolutely absolutely horrifying for me back then.

    Hmm. If I had to pick a favorite expansion zone - it's gotta be Vol'dun, for me.

    And, for what it's worth, I am very hyped for 10.0, too!

    I agree with the conclusion but not the reason. It's not just that TBC was shambolic structurally, but that it wiped out the entire WC3 expansion cast by turning them into insane villains, took a scythe to the WC2 Horde cast while it was at it, down to Zul'jin being mugged by a redneck meme character and then had its conclusion be based around manga tie-in characters which scalped the blood elves for the entire rest of the game's lifespan. BFA's consequences are worse and its main plot is heinous while wasting just as many if not more characters, but it had its zone stories be coherent which can't be said for TBC. The best things to happen to TBC's story is WoD and Chronicle Vol 2.
    Dickmann's Law: As a discussion on the Lore forums becomes longer, the probability of the topic derailing to become about Sylvanas approaches 1.

    Tinkers will be the next Class confirmed.

    You managed to just explain my first wow experience as well, especially the Eversong -> Ghostlands part. Just to add here I did the belf starting subzone of it before reaching Silvermoon by also hitting creatures with my staff as a mage since I didn't know how potent mana regen was so I was saving it

    definitely draenor. Very beautiful, great music and very good use of space. Such good craftsmanship with so much potential and barely utilized... this makes me sad

    By time of Wrath, yeah we have enough experience under our belts to be considered above average. But we are still regular people, we are not special nor are we chosen ones, and the game has not treated us like that until like BfA. The first time we actually got assigned any sort of meaningful role was WoD with the Garrisons, that for me (and for many other people) is when the story shift went too much onto us.

    Dranenor leveling was the best IMO, with some storylines overaching all zones. Hopefully they continue Threads of Fate so there is a correct path to play the stories, SL did have the connections but mostly between current and next zone

    Eastern Kingdoms is definitely the most magical continent imo.
