What zone is the most beautiful in Battle for Azeroth?

I was running around Tiragarde today while leveling my Death Knight, and I realized I was taking way too long to do so. Why? Because I get sidetracked taking picture after picture of everything I see, whether that be the mountains, the coast, or anything in between. Frankly, I found myself floored by how beautiful it all is. And that’s when it hit me — I’d done the exact same thing in Zuldazar, and that’s why my Horde is still level 111.

Seriously, this expansion. After I got over (well, mostly over*) the way it felt to lose Darnassus in the pre-expansion I started looking at the zones, and they’re all gorgeous. Even Drustvar, which is the creepiest place imaginable, or Nazmir, which is just wrong wrong wrong body horror nightmare fuel, have moments of shocking, almost sublime beauty that amaze me considering it’s happening in World of Warcraft.

In particular I think I like Tiragarde the most, but that’s a hard call — some of Stormsong really caught my attention and Zuldazar (especially Dazar’alor) is gorgeous to the point of absurdity. The Zandalar architecture really is amazing, and while I also find Boralus beautiful, the windswept Kul Tiras loveliness is definitely different from the almost luxuriant beauty of Zandalar zones.

But now it’s time for you to tell us what you find the most beautiful so far in this expansion. What zone really works for you? Where do you find yourself taking screenshot after screenshot? Or are you unaffected by the game and how it looks by now?

*Not at all over.
