Eastern Plaguelands, it's the perfect high-level zone because of how dangerous it feels. There are elites on the road, your only real quest hub is this worn down church that looks like it'll break down any minute, and on the Horde side even your primary quest giver despises you, you're really just not welcome in this place. It'd also go on to house the last and most difficult raid in the game, and overall I think it also had the most ties to Warcraft 3's story.

Always had fond memories of Barrens and Ashenvale as well.

Looking forward to EP very much for that reason. The culling of stratholme was the most memorable mission of the Reign of Chaos campaign for me.

Just one? Oh my god, will try (even if I will probably change idea in 5 minutes from this post).

If I have just to choose one I would say Barrens. I know, it's a cliche, but there are so many things to do in there that it has a ton of replayability.

From an aesthetic point of view, I would say Mulgore by far: I could roll on those plains for a month 😀

Also, this. Moving to Thousand Needles always gave a feeling of actually "growing up", leaving the Barrens where you did spend most of your childhood and now moving to uncharted areas where you are on your own.

You said it better than I did. Once in 1k Needles I always felt the game started doing less handholding with the questing hubs.

There are so many good ones, but if I had to pick a couple, I'd have to say Eastern Plaguelands and Winterspring, for vastly different reasons.

EPL, because of a lot of what Fnonk said. The zone contains quite a few epic quest chains (Darrowshire, Tirion Fordring) and the final raid zone of the game, along with one of the best dungeons in Stratholme.

Winterspring, because it's my favorite zone in the game.

Ashenvale. Stonetalon a close second.

Coming from Horde side I've always enjoyed the feeling of finally venturing out of the Barrens into contested territory, and these are the first zones where I always had to watch my back while leveling.

Yes, STV is much worse when it comes to the lurking threat, but in that case there's so much PvP that you're almost desensitized, whereas in Ashenvale and Stonetalon there were bouts of tranquility that would lull you into a false sense of security.

Stranglethorn Vietnam is the greatest zone imo.
I also like 1000 Needles but there's too few PvP going on because of the lack of Alliance quests/FP.

I hate to say it, but PvE wise I guess the Barrens? The zone is memed on a lot but I think for most Horde players from back then, no other zone left this kind of impression and mark on you. The size, the quests (makriks wife anyone?), the big level range, stupid zhevra hoofs and raptor heads, Alliance raiding crossroads. You spent hours and days there. THIS is the zone where you made your first steps towards other players and finding your rythm. It is also the one zone that is NEVER empty.

Yeh spot on dude, Barrens is actually really efficient and lively - I love it.

I also like Hillsbrad as horde, call me a martyr.
