Vash'jir

So far I haven't even gotten very far into Vash'jir on my Paladin, but I'm loving every minute of questing in it. The zone is so beautiful, the quests have a great story, and I get to ride a seahorse!

Art is the first thing I list because there's no other zones that, in my opinion, compare to Vash'jir. The underwater scenery is just so beautiful I've caught myself just staring at it until I notice I'm getting attacked. This is the first zone to come along since Nagrand where I wouldn't mind being stuck for an extremely long time, just because I love the scenery so much. The atmosphere is also amazing, I really get the feeling like I'm underwater.

The quests are fantastic as well. I won't go into details but there's the over-arching story connecting events together where, at least for the first part of the zone, the theme is survival. I love that, I love that in the story we're survivors and fighting for our lives. It makes me feel like a part of the events in the zone, in a way that I didn't feel when I played Hyjal in the beta. I think Vash'jir may be one of those rare zones that I won't mind doing over again, just because the story is that cool.

And the seahorse is just plain cool. I so wish I could bring him out in any underwater area.

Not had a chance to really try the game out much but i was recommended to go to Hyjal over Vash'Jir, and its nice enough but nothing spectacular :P What i would say is everyone i've spoke to has said Uldum is the single best zone in WoW, its basically Indiana Jones meets Azeroth lol.

@D, Yeah, I found Hyjal to be rather boring in beta. Maybe because I've never levelled a druid, it seems a very druid-centric zone. Now that I am levelling a druid, it may seem different when I get there again.

I've heard the same about Uldum too. Can't wait to see it.
