When I first stepped into Orgrimmar. I started as an Undead Warlock, and quested through most of Tirisfal Glades and some into Silverpine Forest. I have been to Undercity, but overall I wasn't very blown away. It was tightly packed together, it has a weird shape and I got lost all the time. My brother then started playing a bit after me, he messages me saying, "I'm on a Zeppelin to Undercity" and that just blew my mind. He was a Tauren, so he should have started somewhere on the other continent. And a zeppelin? What the heck is a zeppelin? I run outside to see this Tauren fall from the sky and die. After a laughing fit, I ask how he got here, and we go up the zeppelin tower, and there it is. A ship that can sail on the clouds! One capable of bringing me to lands so far away! At that moment I think I finally realized how big this world I stepped into really is. I first thought it was rather small, judging by how I easily ran through the starting zone in under an hour. But it got better once I arrived at Orgrimmar. I. was. in. awe. I stared up at the massive gates, walked inside and my mind was blown to smithereens. There were more players here then I have ever seen in my life! Players wielding epic gear, rare mounts and other exciting treasures! And running through the entire city I could see so many interactions of players, so many new sights! The entire time I didn't even know there was a trade chat, so maybe that helped a bit. But it was amazing, there were so many new things to see and do in this new land other then my boring old homeland of Tirisfal. Heck, I actually think I did the Orc starting quests when I didn't know that greyed out quests granted no experience.
