I used to like Westfall and its story, until Cata made half of it a CSI Miami running gag. I rarely play Alliance though, so it doesn't affect me as much.Stonetalon mountains, at least the Horde side, was exceptionally gripping, and made me really, really hate orcs and their brutality. Made me hate Garrosh even more, because even though he shows up later to show his disdain, I can't help but feeling that the whole zone and its atrocities were set up and crammed down my throat storywise just to spotlight Garrosh.Eastern Plaguelands were kinda interesting, I never actually looked into it (or WPL) pre-cata, but I liked the caravan questing that takes you from hub to hub, and giving interesting story snippets all along the way.Silverpine just flows so well. Hillsbrad seems to flow well out of it too. Posters above talk about it better than I could. (Though I always get squicked by the hemorrhoid bears early in Hillsbrad.)Searing Gorge was cool, including repeat visits of the pacifist ogre, but too much time spent underground for my tastes.

I agree. Like many who have "cut their teeth" in the old Westfall, I miss the wild west feel it used to have. With the Defias running rough shod all over the place. Killing 60-80 of them to collect their "red sashes" and eventually having to track down the runner, (forgot his name already) often resorting to /1 general chat to flag him down. Moonbook used to be a death trap for unaware level 12-14 toons, even claiming some battle tested players as they were easily overwhelmed by defias mages. I do miss the quest chain leading up to the Deadmines. Ah, the good old days :)
