My first "intense" memories:Alliance-side: My human paladin graduated out of Northshire and started down the road to Goldshire, and that little road just seemed sooooo long. And then I came around the big curve in the road and Goldshire came into sight, all lit up with Winter Veil lights (I'd had no idea there was a holiday going on).Horde-side: After what felt like months of running around the Barrens and seeing nothing but brown, brown, and more brown, my tauren hunter eventually walked into Ashenvale. I was completely blown away by the color and beauty of that zone.Tyler, I think I know the quest you're talking about - was it the one to deliver a new shield to Stormpike in Loch Modan? I remember having to finally ask on a message board about how to get from Stormwind to Ironforge. I didn't know about the tram, and I hadn't yet ventured out of Elwynn Forest so had no clue about land routes — zone maps were "hidden" if I hadn't visited them yet, so of course I couldn't see the route you took, and I didn't yet know about all the 3rd party sites where I could have gotten the info.But that does remind me of one of my other favorite early memories: finally making my way to IF, and running out the front gate into this winter wonderland ... and seeing my toon's breath in the cold air.

Heh, that reminds me of the day I discovered walking in the snow made footprints. I thought it was the cutest thing. I must have spent 45 minutes running around in circles, watching them fade, then trying to make perfect circles of them before they faded, trying to step back into ones I'd made, etc. XD
