I remember the first time I went into Ironforge. I was like "Whoa, straight out of Lord of the Rings..The Mines of Moria!" Such a cool place, even to this day I love going into Ironforge. I felt the same way going to Orgrimmar. The music, the feel that you are truly a member of the Horde. Very well done! I felt that same wonder and delight going to the Shimmering Flats. At first you think it's just another desert but then..there's a race track in the middle of it! How cool is that?Another epic experience was boarding the boat in Menethil Harbor and being taken the Howling Fjord. That first boat ride there is truly amazing. You feel like you are an adventurer arriving in a strange, new world. No other way to Northrend is quite the same. I remember how let down I felt when I left Undercity on my Warlock and took just another zeppelin ride to Howling Fjord and thought "That's IT?" If you haven't played Alliance in Northrend yet then make sure you do so, if only for that ride to Howling Fjord.Same thing going through the Dark Portal. You step through and really feel as if you are in another world. Fortunately it's the same for both Horde and Alliance. I also remember how I felt upon completing the Netherdrake quest. The way the whole scene plays out, the ride to Shattrath (trying not to spoil this for those who have yet to do it) and then picking out your own netherdrake after weeks of working hard to get it. I could go on and on. This is one reason I roll so many alts..so I can experience things over and over again. Can't wait 'til Catalyst so this can all happen again.
