I've had one for each expansion:Vanilla's was the first time I saw Orgrimmar. WoW was my first MMO, & so seeing these giant gates set in a valley with all these characters (controlled by other people!) duelling outside with flashy spells and fancy armour was, as a level 9 orc warlock, incredible. It got even better when I went inside, and there was this massive valley, filled with intimidating buildings and even more intimidating high level players. As much as Org looks dated, and as much as I love Warsong Hold and the Horde's "new architecture", I'm going to be a bit sorry to see it change, just because of this one memory.BC's was, predictably, my first entrance into Outland (on the same orc warlock), with infernals with a level so high I couldn't see it assaulting this massive structure, while this desolated wasteland stretched off into the distance against Outland's alien sky.Wrath's was (again, on my Warlock) my first entrance into Borean Tundra though Warsong Hold. It remains, to this day, my favourite "town" in WoW, because of it's grandeur. It reminds of those first steps I took into Orgrimmar all those years ago.

Same. While I love the ambiance of HF and Grizzly Hills, there's no 'town' more imposing and impressive than Warsong Hold. Even the new Orgrimar can't compare. I was really hoping Bliz would outdo Warsong Hold with the Orgrimar makeover, but alas, it just comes up short.
