A simple one, the leaves of the trees in the Blood Elf starting zone. I can't explain why, but the combination of the colours in the trees with the peach distance fog absolutely takes my breath away. Ok so maybe that's more colour theory, but hey, don't take this moment from me!

The entire Eversong woods is just breathtaking...I agree with you completely.

^^This^^Until I leveled my first toon to Outland and started doing the Isle of Quel'Danas dailies I'd never seen the Blood Elf themed zones. I immediately rolled a BE so I could check everything out. Yeah, it sometimes looks like the sin'dorei have been taking too much LSD (which I bet is the drug implication; they "turn on, tune in, drop out") but it's very beautiful.Other great zones: * The different trees and plants in transition between zones the Night Elf and Human areas.* The colors and shadow on walls and streets of Stormwind City as dawn becomes daylight, becomes evening, and then night time. The patrolling guards suddenly carrying lanterns is a cool touch too.* The buildings and cobblestoned streets of Dalaran. * Inside the raid instance of Ice Crown Citadel, e.g. Blood Queen Lana'thel's chamber.

The only thing I'm well.. not disappointed, but..Well, if anyone out there knows Toontown, in the blood elf starting area, in the Ghostlands, those jungle trolls buildings... Top of 'em, there are these cartoonish fences, I remember them made out of bones and strings of plants. Really cute! And nostalig, too, I used to play Toontown with my lil' sis'.It's a thing to pick Blizz about, as, well, a new expansion came out 'n' stuff and there shouldn't be such cartoonish details. But wa-hay! I am really grateful to Texture-doing-guys over at Blizz, some textures are breathtaking!!!Hip!Hip!Hip!Hooray!

TR mentions how the color and shadow on the walls and streets of Stormwind are affected by the time of day and the NPC's lanterns at night. I also particularly enjoy that my own character's items that emit light, such as wands and staffs, reflect off of, and brighten, those walls and streets in a way they don't in other cities, such as Ironforge. I wish this happened more throughout the world. If anyone knows of other areas that are similarly responsive, I'd love to hear about them.
