Stormwind was pretty impressive to me too, especially the harbour - the sheer dimensions of it reminded me of an antique Greek or Roman city. Later, on my first Horde character, I thought I was already used to the beauty of Azeroth, but when I first entered Silvermoon City I was bowled over again. I remember thinking that it had been worth going Horde just to see that. Another moment of awe was arriving in Northrend on my first character, and coming to that bridge across the actual fjord in Howling Fjord. Oh. My. Gods. I still have one of the screenshots I took then, as my desktop background :-)

Ooh, I completely forgot about entering Howling Fjord for the first time. There's something amazing and epic about the journey into the harbor, through the narrow channel with the burning boat bound overhead, and around under the rock with the tiny cove behind it. Such a great introduction to the zone.

I think this was also my biggest moment of awe. I have always loved the sheer beauty of Azeroth. But my arrival through all the twists and turns on that boat from Menethil harbor was awesome.Even though I prefer Borean Tundra for leveling, I always recommend to people first seeing Northrend that they take that boat first even if the one that leaves from Stormwind is more convenient.
