Favorite Pre-Shattering starting zone (not including Death Knight): DraeneiLeast Favorite Pre-Shattering starting zone: Tie between Orc/Troll and Dwarf/GnomeThe Blood Elf zone also gets an honorable mention in the least favorite section because it is an absolutely massive zone effectively split in two by a path of angry undead that has to be navigated on foot. I'm sure its been spruced up a bit with the addition of extra flight paths, though.As for Post-Shattering, the only starting zone I've done so far is Night Elf, and I'd consider the new Night Elf zone to be better than the old Draenei one. I'm most looking forward to checking out the Worgen zone, though.

My friend, stay away from the Dwarf starting area if you didn't think much of it before.You will QQ such tears, such grinding, boar guts, boar hides, "AHHH WHY WON'T IT DROP GOD ****ING DAMMIT" tears.Spare yourself, and go to New Tinkerton instead! :D

Actually the new Dwarf area is great, I think there's maybe one or two 'collect animal parts' quests at most, and they almost always seem to be 100% drop now. Also, you get to be a firefighter, a gyrocopter bomber, a Ram whistler, and Moira's baby has the awesomest cutest eyebrows!

I just tried the dwarf starting area for the first time in about 3 or 4 years. The quests are much less spread out and the snowy, wilderness atmosphere was quite enjoyable.Unfortunately the ultimate quest of the whole zone: Grimaxe's Demise: (http://www.wowhead.com/quest=26102) seems to be bugged, with the main quest mob (the big bad guy of the enemy forces) refusing to spawn.Is such a shame as the rest of the zone was fantastic but for something like this to slip through testing is pretty sloppy of Blizz.
