i loved all of the scenery throughout the game (EXCEPT the blasted lands... it felt out of place and carrot-colored...).Im not a big cash earner so id never even had a flying mount (not even 60% speed) until i reached northrend.I ding 77 when i had just finished in grizzly hills, and I wasn't in a guild at the time, i wanted to solo level, no help from guides... so i had NO idea about the zones of northrend, i hadnt ruined it for me in advance.So i go exploring on my ram. I head along through crystalsong forest... i see dalaran but skip it... too crowded and i head up into the mountains.Thats when i discovered the Storm Peaks. I remember running along the lonnnnggggg path to K3 zoomed right out and feeling VERY small next to this TOWERING cliff face on my left. I hit K3 and poked about in the little village... then mounted up on my newly bought 60% flyer (yay northrend quest reward money)... and fly up into the mountains.I turned off the music and did alt+Z so i could get the full benefits of the view.... and it is by far my most favorite zone.Flying around it on a 60% speed flyer makes it feel even more immense. I loved coming round a corner and finding a GIANT metal man, and plains of snow, and villages built onto cliff edges and that amazing cave in the north east that hollows out a giant hole through a mountain. Love it.
