I always wanted to run across these hills singing the Little House on the Prairie music.
That was the first thing to come to mind from the area.

Oh, Westfall. How I hate you and your freaking fleshrippers that enjoy eating mages.

The Defias quest line is great.

"OK, OK, I've got you this time, damned Moonbrook Defias, I've got all my cooldowns and..."

*Rezzes*

"Going pretty well, go- Dammit! Another Defias mage! Potion! Dammit... dammit... Sprint! Vanish!"

*Lags on the vanish*

"F&%$"

The rest was nice, though.

All other Azeroth territories taken out of Alliance control had the Horde, the undead, or the demons behind them. Westfall fell to bitter humans soon after the Second War. The Defias Brotherhood, led by Edwin VanCleef, attempted to take Elwynn Forest but failed. Its members chose Westfall as their home, and the farmers, still shaken from the Horde attacks, put up little fight. They found that the time to steal land from their own accepted ruler was when he was too concerned with orcs, undead and demons to realize that a good chunk of the continent was gone. The rulers at Stormwind, even with knowledge of the Brotherhood's actions, considered other threats to be higher priorities and figured they'd get to Westfall eventually. They do not know the true threat Westfall presents - or even how much the city would miss the agricultural tributes the farmers made.

Once the breadbasket of the kingdom of Stormwind, the land of Westfall started to grow fallow after years of conflict and neglect had diminished its harvests. Crops could eventually no longer be cultivated in the fields, and the once-abundant mines were ultimately deserted. Even the former defenders from Stormwind pulled stake and abandoned the lonely realm when the cost of upkeep became too great.

Due to this lack of military protection, Westfall was all but destroyed by the rebel Defias Brotherhood and its minions, who could easily take control of the poorly defended farmlands. The Brotherhood, composed mainly of thieves and bandits, made Westfall their new refuge. Employing everything from local superstitions to sabotaging mechanical harvest watchers, the Brotherhood stopped at nothing to scare away trespassers and protect their stolen treasures. Only the People's Militia, a volunteer military organization, has risen to stand in their way, recruiting young heroes of the Alliance to strike back and regain what has been stolen. This battle is ongoing, and in the end, the only hope the people of Westfall have is to strike directly against the leaders of the Defias - in hiding somewhere deep below ground. With the People's Militia renaming themselves as the Westfall Brigade and moving their troop into Grizzly Hills suggest that the Defias Brotherhood threat to Westfall has finally subsided though it's still very likely remnants of the Defias Brotherhood exist in all around Westfall.

I loved getting my nearly free chicken every time I went to Westfall.

Most likely your first venture out of Elwynn, (Because you know, you all rolled human as your first toon) this is the first time you realize how big of a world this is.
