To elaborate, because I wanted to get my post in early: I remember my first character, which is still my main today. I had finished the valley of trials and didn't know where to find sen'jin village. My friend who had gotten me into WoW had only played night-elves before, and so was as lost as me. We figured if we followed the road, we'd find Sen'jin. We ran down the road, and jumped off as two orcs barreled past on worgs. I decided I wanted a worg, and would buy one as soon as I could (this was around patch 1.1, so all you veterans can shudder in unison with me at the old cost of riding). We reached razor hill, and I was impressed at the inn and the barracks and the watchtower on the ridge, but I could tell this was an orc village, and the quest said sen'jin was for trolls. We dropped off a package a peon had sent us with, and y friend decided to stick around and get training for his warrior. I decided to explore down the canyon. I ran down it, at one point fleeing for my life from harpies (I learned to jump-shot by necessity at this point). I got to the end, and before me was a MASSIVE wall. I wondered what that could be. I walked to it, and it just kept getting bigger the closer I got, until I walked in. As I went through portcullis after portcullis, heard the beating of drums, and then a dull blare of deep brass as I turned the corner and saw the fires, the spires, the cliff walls, the huge buildings, and the bustling players. I walked up to an orc in shiny, spiky armor, and tried to ask him for directions. I was informed that he was High Overlord Saurfang, and this was Orgrimmar. I still remember getting a chill down my spine as I reached the bank, spun around, and realized just how MUCH there was here. Then I saw the paths running off to the right, and realized there was MORE. I remember calling my friend, and telling him, in my 14-year-old voice, 'Dude, you gotta come see this place.'
