As one who always raged on Outlands and only recently at last got through it (now lv 75), I gotta say this actually has made me appreciate it more. I went through Netherstorm instead of Shadowmoon, both have a great and distinct feel, and I really loved the crazy look and feel of these massive chunks floating in the nether. I was also quite impressed with where the story of the Blood Elves was taking me. One of my fav lil moments was the quest chain where you pose as one and walk down a row of warriors who all salute and you watch the story unfold. I jumped straight to Northrend at 68 and did not complete the zone but O gotta admit despite my own nerdrage I was impressed.As for Northrend I am LOVING it, despite wanting to finally reach the 80-85 content like a mad man. The look and music alone of Howling Fjord and Grizzly Hills and Cystalsong Forest make me so relaxed I just want to wander around. I am now in Zul Drak for the first time and despite being "Just more Trolls" I am impressed by the dark and desperate tone and it feels like nothing I have been through before including the revamped stuff.Finally one thing I adore Northrend for is where Humans came from. I have always detested playing just human characters and most fantasy genres Humans are the "normal" guys or even one of the weakest races. But WOW gave us the idea of Humans coming from the Vrykul. This means for me those "normal" Humans have in their blood and genes an instinctual savagry bloodlust that would make the mightiest Orc think twice. So the apprent "good and virtueous" side of the Humans of Azeroth is sort of a way to desperately push down that inherit and uber savagry they do not even realize they have.It makes rolling a Human so much fun knowing this so thanks blizz for making actually LIKE playing my actual species for once! Tho I still think Worgen and Draenei rule ;p
