One of my favorite places in all of Azeroth is The Hinterlands. I always make an effort to come out to this zone to quest. I know a lot of people dislike it, but I love it. I think I’ve done it on every character that I’ve got. I think the troll lore is fascinating, and really enjoy many of the troll towns that are in the game. I find this particular zone peaceful and tranquil, in a very sort of naturey way. I think that this is the true habitat of the trolls of Azeroth, and I’m not sure if there is another zone currently in the game that exhibits it quite as well. I also have fond memories of coming out and doing the Jintha’Alor quests, trekking up and through the cave for the Ancient Egg. Dying as the runners got loose, or you made one too many friends :)
Of the zones that becomes drastically changed with Cataclysm, I really hope that this one doesn’t get destroyed. I hope that the forest here stays mostly in tact. I think I would become very sad if I came out here and found it a barren wasteland, torn apart.
I think it’s partly because of it’s rich Troll Lore, which I love (plus they’ve got great music!).
And I think it’s partly because of how beautiful the zone itself is.
What memories do you have of The Hinterlands?
