Dwarf and gnome starting area! Crunchy snow, warbling flute ambient music... Kind of missed it when I joined horde, but then they made Northrend- nice.

I also was always a big fan of the Dwarf land, even though I play Horde. The very first character I ever made was a dwarf hunter way back in the vanilla beta and I still remember being completely in awe of the Dwarf starting zone. Everything was just so amazing looking and such an incredible attention to detail down to the little things like the crunch of the snow and the footprints left behind. No MMO out then was even close.As far as the new areas, I cannot wait to play them all. So far I have done the Undead, Troll and Gnome's and if the rest are similar, Blizzard has really done a great job with them. If you liked the Mulgore and Tirisfal Glades because they felt like they were a part of the Lore, then you will love the new starting zone. Gone are the "kill 10 rats" type of quests for the most part. All of the quests are pieces of an overall story. Complete with NPC's that sometimes join in the questing with you (I miss you Darnell) Really loads of fun.

I loved the Dwarf/Gnome starting area too.

Is it just me or is there some kazoo music in the dwarf/gnome starting area now?

Pre-Shattering, I hated Dun Morogh, and there seemed to be next to nothing in Loch Modan. The Kharanos quests in particular gave new meaning to loreless, boring grind-fest. After my first dwarf, every subsequent dwarf or gnome I've made, as soon as they could make it through the tunnel, immediately headed for the tram and went to Elwynn Forest.I imagine it's much improved now... I'll have to see.
