You have better flight paths and better grouped quests.
Barrens is by far the best place to level in that level range. There are so many quests. Sure it is big but you have two flight paths placed nicely in that zone and one flight path to a neutral town. Nothing compares to The Barrens. It may look bland and dry but it is fantastic for out-right leveling.
Those of you who have only played WoW, have no idea what real grinding and questing is like. WoW is a Kaek-walk for leveling. Go play EQ, EQ2 or Vanguard and you will get an idea of what real grinding is like.
I guess its just preference.
I have never liked the desert areas.
I dont enjoy Desolace either.
But at least with Tanaris, you have a mount by that stage which makes life easier.
I prefer the pretty areas
