My first time entering Duskwood. The darkness. The cobwebs clinging to everything. The worgen. And the epicness of Stitches making his march toward Darkshire, with town criers warning of his approach, and him chasing me and beating me down when I got too close. I didn't realize it was part of a quest at the time, which made it even creepier and more mysterious at the time.I also want to agree about those new spore-infested bears in Hillsbrad. My stomach ties in knots whenever I see them.On a lighter side, but equally as disturbing: The Goldshire inn on the Moon Guard realm. *shudder*

Duskwood's really not the same without the vanilla model Worgen, to me at least. I wish they'd kept the original ones for their feral, terrifying appearance. The new player models just don't have the same atmosphere.

Duskwood really, really freaked me out on my first character (human warrior). I was doing some quests in Westfall, just exploring, saw a cute little bridge and headed that way at too low a level. The music is the worst/best part of Duskwood (I think it also plays in Tirisfal Glades). It's a few piano notes and a lot of ambient music. I seriously get chills just thinking about it, it really puts me on edge.Anyway, about 15 seconds after finding Duskwood, which looked totally abandoned and beyond creepy, a giant spider jumped on me even though I was in the middle of the road, scared the holy hell out of me, and destroyed me in like two or three hits. I avoided going back there for a long time after that and would only play with the in-game sound off when I was in that area for the longest time. And when I first switched to Horde, I avoided playing any undead characters for a long time because Tirisfal reminded me way too much of Duskwood, and it was such a HUGE area before I had a mount or had ever uncovered the map, it seriously bothered me to be there. I'd get all turned around and just hated the sense of dread I'd get questing through there. But for the past few years, Tirisfal's been one of my favorite zones in Old World, even pre-Cataclysm. I guess turning Horde made me enjoy evilness. Yay?
