CATA World changes, one of the worst things to ever happen to WoW.

I really like the revamped Ashenvale. Before it was just a Night Elf questing zone, but with Cataclysm, it became the largest low leveled contested area. THAT is where all the low level pvp is! It's fun to run into an enemy quester every now and then!

Looks like this video was paid for by Blizzard, none of the zone changes in Cataclysm were necessary.

There were some zones I thought were improved by the Cataclysm changes, but those were few (I can only think of Winterspring and Feralas off hand).

I heard somewhere that the barrens was the last place deathwing attacked. There was this 80's tv action hero that got angry about the barrens destruction, and challenged Deathwing to a duel. Deathwing ran away hurt and went into hiding after that.

No shout out to zangarmarsh's music and ambience? It's my favorite! The feeling of the zone both visually and auditory is amazing. But yeah Burning crusade does ambience and music near perfectly. Vanillas music and ambience is not very good nor memorable in my opinion. I could point out the login theme and main theme of vanilla but that's about it. I do love the later expansions music though. It is a huge jump in quality from BC to wrath to cataclysm then a gigantic leap from cataclysm to mists of pandaria. God the music, zones, and ambience of Mists is the best. I love the traditional chinese music and the mash between that and orchestral music, it's so unique.

One thing I liked about Warlords of Draenor was that the world felt real. Little villages popping up along the way to a bigger hub. Once I read some early WoW books, I wanted to see some of the places they mention but are not in the game.

Artistically I detested the revamped Azeroth maps/zones because 1) it caused a timeline continuity mess of leveling up as a character in the future, then time travelling back to BC, WOTLK zones for 61-80 progression. 2) consequently wiped out Azeroth's initial stories/quests after the events of *Warcraft 3* and also how the landscape used to be. Technically though, I can understand why they decided to go with that path since 1) the original Azeroth was never designed for flight and had a lot of ugly mess to clean up if flight was to properly work (also why Azuremyst Isles/Exodar and Eversong Woods/Ghostlands/Silvermoon City never allowed flight). 2) they can take all the experience/lessons learnt the past six years and try to provide a better more streamlined beginner leveling/questing experience.

The main change I didn't like from Classic to Cata was the Tarren Mill/South Shore change. Such a fantastic and natural world PvP area. I was sad about the destruction of Auberdine as well. Other than that... I loved the Cata world changes and storylines. I had gotten bored with leveling before the change. The change made it exciting and new again. I do agree that some of the simple melodies played in some zones were beutiful and perfect in their own way. Grand music scores like we have in Boralus are cool. I love that one. But I think there is still a place for simpler music in the game. I loved Nagrand's music. It was one of my favorites.

I'm glad that Blizzard stopped removing content for quite some time now. Nowadays when they change things they place a NPC to travel to the past. Or like they did with Karazhan, where they main entrance is still the old version. Fortunate enough I play since classic so I experienced everything and got most of the old stuff like mounts etc. but I it's still sad that they straight up removed the old versions and new players wont even get the chance to get some of the stuff.

Why is it EdgeWing could refuckulate the entire world of warcraft in 1 fel swoop but in 20 fucking expansions since then the heros have defeated monsters that can create and destroy entire realms of existence AND THEYVE DONE NOTHING I feel like even Vanilla lvl ones who are no bodies could have fixed Azeroth by now but the heros clearly have no interest in using there godlike powers to fix the low level world I thought Kata writers were a bunch of commies who want people to do the right thing for the people(WESTFALL LUL)? Maybe they are like some political parties who cry about issues but dont want anything fixed b/c then they have to look for something new to cry about rather then being paid to cry

I admire the improved terrain. Early on, zones were delineated by a ring of high mountains. Now the boundaries are much more subtle and the transition to a different ecosystem far more clever. Legion explored game play in 3 dimensions but navigating to an objective could be confusing. They've solved that in BFA. There is just as much up hill and down dale, but now there's an intuitive flow to traversing the landscape. I cannot shower enough praise on the people designing the vegetation and hard landscape. I agree about the music. I preferred early WOW to BFA. Back in the day it was a harmonic ambience. Now it is intrusive melody which is tediously repetitive. Frankly, I play BFA with the music on mute.

Absolutely agree on the music. The simpler, more ambient music in BC kind of allowed the scenery to "breathe," for lack of a better way to put it. It didn't distract, but enhanced the strangeness and otherness of Outland.

Since WoD I hope blizzard would remake the world once again in new expansion. Now They might do it as with Sylithus. Maybe let Dwarfs repair their dam, repair fortress in westfall, destroy old war camps, update main cities... There is So much potentional in old world blizzard is not really taking advantage of.

I was just thinking. It would be cool to have Warfronts all over Azeroth. LIke Fates in FFXIV and "random wq" on timers pop up in GW2 have different areas under attack and players (even lowbies) can contribute with resources etc. Get reinforced walls/gates. XP for the lowbies. Achievements for max levels perhaps. Instead of it being in one repetitive zone. Somewhat like demonic invasions pre Legion but at major Alliance/Horde sites. If I get Classic I'd probably be hanging out in Auberdine, fishing mainly. XD

This video was super interesting; I started playing in late Cataclysm, and never got to see the original Azeroth in game, so the Barrens change, for example, I knew of because it was so massive. I also knew of the Auberdine destruction, but, I never knew of the Westfall change, I thought it has always been this big fortress, until now, thanks to your video. :)

Music I can't really say I have much nostalgia over other than Westfall. I recall its music a lot, but I don't recall any of the other tracks in the game as I always have the game music turned off. I don't think I heard(in game) any of the music from TBC onwards.

So funny that this video comes up. I’ve played wow continuously since vanilla. I was just flying through all the zones and I was actually surprised at how much had changed. I’ve had an active subscription for I guess over 10 years now, more than that I guess...And the way the game is currently designed, I’ve had no need to go back and see any of those zones. It’s really quite sad that I flew through desolace And was confused because I didn’t know where I was. It’s been years since cataclysm and I haven’t even seen those changes. I knew they existed, but I hadn’t seen them myself. I mean I haven’t leveled anything from level 1 since you’ve been able to buy Max level characters.

i know i will get a lot of hate from the classic purists but i would love classic (all the functionality) but with todays textures and graphics. i think that would get more people to stick with it when it comes out. i will play it in any case so i can once again experience my little druid killing spiders on the world tree but it would be really nice in my opinion to have the new models and textures, particle effects etc. available. i know it will not happen, but i would love it. the original wow landscape was the best wow ever was in my opinion. experiencing that with updated graphics would be awesome. oh and just to be clear, i do not want the layout to change, i just want the new models for everything in its original place.

Not that I don't love the new zones, aside from a thing or two they are very well made. Especially now that dynamic levelling is a thing, which was an awesome idea. But the thing I miss the most about Classic Zones is the loneliness. It's really awesome being out there by yourself or with a friend, knowing that there are no friendlies for miles. I guess it makes sense that after so many years, there would be progress with all the heroes lending a hand, but I'm glad the "frontier-feeling" is coming back!
