Hyjal is my number one favorite zone. (TH is 2nd, then Deepholm 3rd). All three of these zones tell a compelling story that give meaning to each quest. I though the Hyjal quests were tightly written and very goal focused. I was singlehandedly rallying ancient forces and fighting back evil. Although the final fight was anti-climatic and way too easy, I ended the zone feeling like the "chosen one", the hero of the age. I could look back and see a world that was different because of the actions of my character (much like Deepholm).All six of my 85's competed or almost completed Hyjal. It was rarely boring or dull. The flow of the zone is good, yet had some freedom of choice after the beginning. And most of all, what other zone in the game left you exalted with a key faction (besides Therazane in Deepholm)? None of my casters had any trouble getting their head enchant, even before it was boa. So it was practically rewarding as well as fun.In contrasts, rep with Earthern Ring and Ramkahen were a royal pain and not as fun. Hyjal had no dailies either, but the quests were sufficient to get you 1/3 to exalted.

Above, obviously I meant "left you revered with a key faction." You did need to wear a tabard for a few 85 dungeons if you wanted to get to exalted. Well worth it for plate dps and priests, if you didn't want to buy a 359 belt. For many classes, revered was enough.
