Biggest Horde turn-off: ugly architecture. (Other trolls, blood elves and (new) Forsaken are exceptions.)

You're just too prissy for the Horde. Go back to your islands goblin.

I like Org's design and Warsong Hold is honestly my favorite town ingame, but I do agree some work was needed to make the places feel more livable/lived in.

I like the exterior of Forsaken architecture, but the interior could use a bit of work since it's kind of cramped.

I really like the German Expressionistic style of it though, and the inn is my favorite piece of Forsaken architecture since it also resembles a crypt. Exactly the kind of place a corpse would want to sleep in for the night.

This topic is now about the merits of virtual architecture.

Seriously, though, I wonder whether my version will have the Cataclysm changes or if it'll be like the original... Experience has me leaning towards the latter.

Nope, the former. All versions of WoW were updated with the Cataclysm. So if you haven't ever seen the old world, you don't really know what you're missing out on.

Which is a shame. Questwise it's not even close to as bad as before, Vanilla was pretty bland... but the revamp also cost' us hundrets of quests (admittedly most of them involving collecting bear asses) on both continents and the old stories are now, for the most part, gone, and those zones that carry on from the old version will mean nothing to newcomers (the repopulation of the Pestlands, for example.). Wouldn't be so bad for me if it wasn't stuck in Cataclysm of all things. Not so much because i hate Cata (i do, though WoD has tackled it from the top spot of the shit pyramid) but because many a zone is now eternally in a state of disrepair and chaos.

AH! I misused "former" vs. "latter". Mah bad. No, I expect(ed) since I had access to everything else (Pandaren & Goblin & Worgen races, Death Knight hero class, etc), that it would be the "new" world of Cataclysm.

There are ways to do it. We don't speak of them, but they exist.

That said, I disagree with the idea that the world was aesthetically more pleasing pre-Cataclysm, especially since the vast majority of zones look the same. There are definitely some outliers like Desolace and Thousand Needles, but if one were to look at Moonglade at launch and Moonglade now, there's zero visual difference between the two.

I don't know about a vast majority. Maybe half of the zones got off with fairly minor changes, or none at all, while the other half got overhauled pretty significantly.

Eastern and Western Plaguelands, Silverpine, Hillsbrad, the Wetlands, Loch Modan, the Badlands, Westfall, Stranglethorn, Darkshore, Ashenvale, Stonetalon, Azshara, the Barrens, Desolace, Thousand Needles and Tanaris got fairly major changes somewhere in their zone, and got slapped with either massive volcanoes and lava-filled pits, devastating floods, or got locked in a state of constant invasion/war.

Some of the changes are good, and some are not so good.

I personally really liked the updated and de-plagued Plaguelands, as well as the war between the Forsaken and the Worgen in Silverpine. And the changes made to the Barrens (the growing oases and the war in the south) are not too shabby either. The regrowth in Desolace is pretty cool too. And as a druid I love swimming around in Thousand Needles, seeing all the centaur villages destroyed down at the bottom. I miss the Shimmering Flats and the old raceway, though.

What I'm trying to check here is the idea that the game looked better before Cataclysm. Most of the zones that were updated had the sameness of the territory altered; WPL has the living areas and the reconstruction in Andorhal, for example, while Blasted Lands had a dark forest area added to it instead of a demon-infested wasteland that looked like the rest of Blasted Lands but with fog effects turned up.

Thousand Needles is probably the zone that, more than any other, has an entirely different look throughout the whole zone rather than in singular areas.
