World of Warcraft: Dragonflight’s verdant new zones are the perfect return to Azeroth

I didn’t expect to be blown away by the look of the World of Warcraft: Dragonflight alpha but the Azure Span and Forbidden Reach zones have prompted me to take more screenshots than I have in the last year of playing WoW.

Maybe I’m just tired of the other-worldliness of the Shadowlands, but the Azure Span certainly delivers us the relative normality of Azeroth—and I mean that in a good way. From the moment I was brought into the area at level 65, I was reminded of a more colorful Mount Hyjal.
