Blog Azeroth Shared Topic: The Best and Worst Cities/Towns

This is an answer to Windsoar of Blog Azeroth’s question of:

“After a long day of adventuring, where’s your favorite town to hang up your weapon, take off your boots or slippers and curl up with a glass of wine? (Or a skin of whatever swill you undead people drink.. how does that work anyway? I wouldn’t think you’d need food and water, but I see you nomming as much as the rest of us.)

What town makes you want to turn your charger around and race for the next outpost? Where you know the bedbugs WILL bite, and the slop on your plate will likely leave you with indigestion?”

The Best

Where’s the one place where a Draenei will be welcomed without question? Where the elevator of doom is a good filter for AFKers, and Horde will be confused to where you just disappeared off to? Where the astonishing view takes one’s breath away?


The town is small and tucked away. Invisible to those who aren’t looking for it, its views from the top leave one with a smile of utter delight. Of all the towns and cites of Azeroth, I’ve got to say that this is my favorite.

The Worst

Rich in culture and history, the Tauren’s capital is a beautiful town. You’re sure to spend hours navigating it, and spamming chat with the question, “Where’s the pools of Vision?!!” Carved from wood, totem poles stretch towards the sky, and the folk are friendly. The views are… Ahhh! (Falling down cliff)

Thunder Bluff

First off, I’m terribly sorry to any Tauren who are upset at this post. I’ve nothing against Tauren, nothing at all! You guys are awesome! I love your history, culture, starting zone, and everything! Everything, except for Thunder Bluff. Mulgore is a beautiful zone, the perfect place to set your graphic settings as far up as they can go, sit up high somewhere, and just admire the view. Thunder Bluff would be a good place to do that as well, if you can find your way around. I am so confused by its mutiple levels, bridges, and the daunting cliffs, that I just don’t like the place.

Of course, that just my opinion.

    i agree with thunderbluff being a horrible place for navigation. as far as my favorite i guess it would be telaar in nagrand that place is great. i use to spend hours their just sitting around

    A very good choice for the “best”! I never would have thought of it, since my mind goes immediately to the capitals, rather than outposts. It is definitely the perfect place for Draenei, and it’s such a pretty place with the fountain in the center and the lounge chairs outside the inn with lights strung everywhere. Very good ambiance.

    (I also love the screenshot you have for it)

  3. Telredor is a great choice indeed. I loved it when TBC first launched, and it’s always been a little sad to me that it gets used so little during the leveling process. Outland could have used fewer home bases — Blade’s Edge has THREE per side! — which would have made places like Telredor get more of the attention they deserve.

    Mulgore is awesome, and Thunder Bluff doesn’t measure up. It’d be nice if Cataclysm could knock a few of the columns together, merging the levels, and reorganized a bit. I know there’s meant to be a thematic layout to each of the levels, but it’s not clear enough.
